» Mr. The Hobo Nickels

a.k.a. one Paolo Curcio (“mrthe”). Hobo nickels are artistic reimaginings of old coins by (apparently) talented sculptural artists. Really beautifully done. I think I want one.

» PetaPixel: 100-Year-Old Box of Negatives Discovered by Conservators in Antarctica

“Almost one hundred years after a group of explorers set out across the frozen landscape of Antarctica to set up supply depots for famed explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, a box of 22 never-before-seen exposed but unprocessed negatives taken by the group’s photographer has been unearthed in one of those shacks, preserved in a block of ice.”
Fantastic! And remarkably well preserved.

» My Cloud Pal

“On January 1, 2013 my phone escaped me and somehow fell into the hands of a man with a killer mustache. Thanks to Apple and some kinks in the cloud, I receive all of his pictures in my photo stream. Here are his selfies as re-enacted by yours truly.”
I’m a little late to the party with this one, but these are fantastic.

» E7

“There is a huge bomb on this planet directed at earth.”
A really beautiful, simple, challenging platform flash game. Very fun.

» Swoosh Art

Artist David Bedoni adorns several classic works of art with the Nike swoosh and branding.

Have a happy Friday, and welcome back everybody.
