Feb. 22nd, 2013

The last Friday of February. Already!

So I guess we still need some Friday Links… Here we go!

» Anthony Kurtz: No Man’s Job

“Photographer Anthony Kurtz visited Femme Auto in Senegal and took portraits of the mechanics and auto body workers there. They’re really gorgeous shots, and it’s always great to see badass women doing it to it in a male dominated field.”
Discovered on Jezebel.com.
Awesome.

» YOU HAD ONE JOB!

A litany of great building and construction mistakes. Yikes.

» Unreleased Celebrity Fragrances

Sample:
“Mule Variation by Tom Waits: Animalic, with notes of honey, overripe orange peels, and improperly cured game meats. Caution: may burn through the skin if applied too liberally.”
Sign me up! (Sort of.)

» Little Alchemy

A cool, educational, challenging little discovery game. I like.

Bonus Link!

» Guy’s American Kitchen And Bar

A fake Guy Fieri restaurant menu. I’m not sure if this makes me like Mr. Fieri more or less.
Funny. To me.

Happy Final February Friday!

Friday again! Whuhoo!

And where I am, we just got a boatload of snow. Crazy!

Let’s begin…

» PULP-O-MIZER

“The customizable pulp magazine cover generator”
Fantastic.

» Unintentionally Hilarious Vintage Valentine’s Day Cards!

“See the top 100 Risque, Rude and Sexy examples of all time!”
Nnnnoooo kidding.
This is from a vintage collection dating back to the mid-20th century and older, not drawn by the blogger, Mitch O’Connell.
Insane, and (I guess) timely.

» Things Fitting Perfectly Into Other Things

Fascinating!

» Kim Jong: Nuke Trouble

Kim Jong Il / Un must defend himself from (his own?) nukes.
It’s odd and slightly addictive.
Thanks, Gino F., for assistance in finding this.

Bonus Link!

» Riker Ipsum

i.e.: Generated placeholder text that uses quotes from the character Commander Riker in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
“When has justice ever been as simple as a rule book? In all trust, there is the possibility for betrayal. Now, how the hell do we defeat an enemy that knows us better than we know ourselves? Maybe if we felt any human loss as keenly as we feel one of those close to us, human history would be far less bloody.” (etc.)

Happy Friday again my fellow Friday Links subscribers.

February is here!!

And of course: So is Friday!

Here we go everybody…

» Designtaxi: Fascinating Business Cards Of The World’s Most Famous People

First up: Mark Zuckerberg, with his iconic “I’m CEO, Bitch.” card. (yikes)

» Sharp Suits

“Ireland’s creative community got together to release a lot of pent up anger and sadness through the medium of the A3 poster, all in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

Ad creatives, designers, animators, directors, illustrators and more took time out to dress up their favourite worst feedback from clients, transforming quotes that would normally give you a twitch, into a diverse collection of posters.”
I like so much I can’t even properly describe. 🙂

» The Atlantic: Beijing’s Toxic Sky

A photo essay showing just how polluted the air is in Beijing. Yikes.

» The Competitor

“A rogue ship is trying to infiltrate your base. Defend your territory by drawing up some troops. Take away all the lives of the enemy ship to survive.”
A pretty straightforward arcade game. Not bad at all.

Bonus Link!

» 50 Things Replaced by Modern Technology

I’m not in 100% agreement with all 50 but yes, a lot has been replaced by modern tech. Crazy.

Happy Friday!
