Well hello again, Friday folks!
Heeeeere we go…
» NBC Photoblog: Before and after: Tornado cuts devastating path through Oklahoma
» Secret Gourmet Tea Shop In Sao Paulo Brazil
» 15 Of The Greatest Celebrity Commencement Speeches
My faves are Meryl Streep’s and Stephen Colbert’s. (Well: and David Foster Wallace’s, which I featured in the Friday Videos a couple weeks ago.)
Draw your own conclusions.
» Red Ball 4 Vol. 2
A “physics based” platformer flash game.
Also: pretty fun! 🙂
» Robbo vs. Banksy
Sent along by Sheri C. Nicely done.
Have an amazing, warm, pre-Summer weekend.
Ohhhhhh it’s Friday!
Where I live that also means it’s a long weekend. Whuhoo!
So! Links you say! Alllllrighty then…
» Lalage Snow: We Are Not The Dead
“A series of portraits of British soldiers over a period of eight months, before, during and after their operational deployment in Afghanistan.”
A bit harrowing but also fascinating.

» HildenDiaz: Forms In Nature
“Using a simple action, such as intensifying the brightness at the center of the artwork, the light transforms the space and adds character, as the work throws oversized shadows onto walls and ceilings in the space in which it hangs.”
Just a subtle reminder that Xmas is only 221 days away… 😉
A really great idea. Love it.
» Tokyo City Symphony
Sent along by Michael P.
» New Splitter Pals
Use gravity and physics to collect stars and earn points. Deceptively simple at first…
Sent in by Ashy.
As a tiny bonus, I’m sure most of you have already seen this, but if you hadn’t already: now you have. This was sent in by a record number of subscribers, and it’s definitely worth a peek. You’re welcome!
Have a fantastic Friday everybody.
And we’re well into Spring now. Ahhhhh…
Let’s get to the links!
» Creepy or Cool? Portraits Derived From the DNA in Hair and Gum Found in Public Places
Artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg creates reconstructions of stranger’s faces based on DNA analysis of found items like cigarette butts and spit-out chewing gum. The results are pretty interesting.

A neat little kaleidescopic drawing tool. Nicely done.
» Animal Blueprint Company
Now you know how to build a Cocker Spaniel. 😉
You are presented with a Google Street View image and you have to guess where in the world it is. You are scored by how close you guessed. Repeat.
This could eat up your weekend.
Suggested by Graham B.
Have a Happy Friday everybody!
Hello and Happy Friday everybody!
Here we go…
» Flora Borsi: Time Travel
Artist Flora Borsi photoshops herself as well as her cell phone into iconic historical photographs.
“If time travel did indeed become a reality, how would it affect our world as we currently experience it?”
It’s a good – and funny – question.
I guess if you have a form that you really want absolutely nobody to enter or send, you can use this.
An odd little concept. Funny.
» Twitter: The Comic
“Comics based on the greatest tweets of our generation.”
Mike Rosenthal, the artist behind this tumblr, draws comics based on tweets he discovers. Many of these are pretty frikkin’ great.
» Cardboard Box Assembler
A very cool little game.
Have a great, sunny, warm, lovely Spring Friday.
Welcome to Friday, and the end of May 2013, and of course: your Friday Links!
» Phones Replaced With Sandwiches
» Thornhill Jewellery: Coins
“We only work with recycled materials.”
In this case: British coin currency.
Also see their spoons. Really beautiful.
» Insect Lab Studio
“Insect Lab customizes preserved insect specimens with antique watch parts and mechanical components.”
On the surface it sounds ridiculous but these are some quite intricate and beautiful creations.
» Free Rider 3
VERY addictive cycling game along the same lines as line rider. Very fun.
» UrbanBaby: things i’ve learned from my law and order habit
“You can cross examine a murder suspect in three questions.” and “Manhattan Assistant DA’s are HOT!” are good ones.
Have a fantastic Friday everybody.
