Mar. 27th, 2015

It’s the last Friday in March 2015.

That was fast!

Are we ready for some links? Oh yes we are…

» Plane Safety Cards Explained

This is the funniest thing I have seen on the internet this year.

» MacGyver Wiki: List of problems solved by MacGyver

An example:
“MacGyver rigs an electric panel using wire and an alarm clock to disrupt the slot machines and lights in the casino at a certain time.”
And yes, there is a MacGyver Wiki.

» Airport Codes

Ever wanted to know what your city’s airport code stands for? Now you (mostly) know.

» Hunting Contest

An unexpectedly violent version of Duck Hunt, only with bunnies.
Still strangely addictive.

Bonus Link!

» Flamingo’s Art

Replacing iconic subjects in classical art with Flamingos.
… I mean obviously
These are actually expertly done.

Happy Friday everybody!

This is the last Friday of Winter, 2015 (and / or the first Friday of Spring, 2015.)

A pretty great day yes? I hope so.

And now: Friday Links!

» A True Copy: Famous Images Recreated

“In their studio photographers Joakim Cortis and Adrian Sonderegger reconstructed the world’s best known photographs: the Concorde take-off, the Loch Ness monster, the footprint of the first human on the Moon and many others.”
These are fascinating!
Also reported in Wired and My Modern Metropolis.
Some extremely meticulous work here.

» SAFE MODE / Tony B

Now you can be a DJ from the comfort of your own web browser.

» Google Feud

Google’s search autocomplete turned into a version of Family Feud. Guess how Google will autocomplete certain terms and you progress.
Completely addictive and entertaining.

» Pacxon

“Your goal is to fill the empty space and capture the monsters by building a wall around them.
You can advance to the next level once 80% of the space is filled.”
So basically: Pac Man meets Qix (a game I used to love!)
Pretty great. Very addictive.

Bonus Link!

» Bauhausify It

“Designers know that putting words and visuals at an angle makes everything look more dynamic and interesting. Yet the Web is and has always been boringly straight. Introducing Bauhausify It, the bookmarklet that lets you see the web in a new, more interesting way.”
Try it on something really cluttered. It looks a little crazy.

Have a great weekend everybody!

See you in a week.

Friday…

…the thirteenth!! [orchestra!]

And only one more week until Spring!

So: Links time!

» Google Maps Puzzle Game

This is quite challenging. I like it.

» Das Kreative Haus

A clever set of typography presented as extremely detailed animated gifs, from the group at Deep Blue Networks.
Great work.

» Circle Push

You, uh…, push a circle. Until it matches the circle beneath it. And repeat.
It gets more challenging for sure.

» Party Hard

Secretly murder as many party guests as possible without getting caught.
It’s a frantic little game.

Bonus Link!

» Gravity Points

A neat little particle / gravity simulation right in your browser.

Happy, happy Friday everybody!

So here we are: March!

And of course: Friday!

Ready?…. Ready! Links time!

» FLRN GIF

A small little tumblr site full of clever, geometrically satisfying animated gifs created by Florian de Looij.
I like these.

» B4-XVI beforesixteen

“Highlighting an invisible conversation between hip hop and art before the 16th century.”
Curated by Cecilia Azcarate, juxtaposing and comparing current hip-hop and rap artists to art from the 16th century and prior.
Some of these are just excellent.

» Hi-Res Images Of Chemical Elements

[self explanatory]
These are great! Some of them are not what you expect. Great little find.

» Frantic

A simple little arcade shooter. It gets pretty challenging in later levels. Fun!
Sent along by Traci T.

» Don’t Call Me Oscar

“One child’s journey through the Best Picture Nominees.”
This got to me a bit late but it’s no less adorable.
Well done. Sent in by Cheryl S.

Have a lovely, warm, fabulous weekend.

See you in a week.
