Your Friday Links have arrived…
And it’s already the last Friday in April!
Just a quick note that both the Friday Links and the Friday Videos websites are now mobile and tablet friendly. I heard your concerns and I rearranged a few things. Thanks for your understanding while I got all of that happening over the past few weeks.
So let’s get going…
» Inside Abbey Road
A mind blowing insider’s look at this historic recording facility. Great work.
Sent in by many, many subscribers.
» Gradient Forest
Created by Vince McKelvie.
A great little browser experiment that performs photographic effects on your image of choice.
» Stickman Dirtbike
A challenging little bike racer. Also not a bad band name.
» PhobosLab: REVERSE ENGINEERING WIPEOUT (PSX)
“I remember poking around on the CD of the PC Version of WipEout back in the day, looking for ways to modify the game. I was thrilled to find .pcx images of all textures and tried to change one of the in-game billboard graphics to show my name. I wasn’t able to get it working.
Now, almost 20 years later, I thought I’d give it another shot.”
Have a great Friday and a great weekend.
And where I am, it’s rainy. Bleah.
So! Time for some links!
» HTML5 Drum Machine
Yes, a drum machine in your web browser.
You can save your patterns and everything.
» I created these VHS covers for april’s fool
There is a longer article (in French) available here.
They look pretty accurate for around 1982 – 83 or so. Great work.
» The Worst Internet Things Bracket
Final Four was last week, I know, so my timing is off. But this is still a great read. (And funny.)
» Orbit or Beat
You orbit a circle, and music plays. You have to avoid obstacles by orbiting on the inside or outside of the circle. More challenges rack up from there.
Definitely challenging. A fun little distraction.
» All the presidents’ delightfully awkward first pitches
A great little collection. Just in time for baseball season!
Sounds like an odd film title. (Starring Dustin Hoffman?)
Happy (rainy) Friday everybody.
It is Friday!
It is April!
It is (where I live) a Long Weekend!
It is time for your Friday Links! 🙂
» Vector map
A pretty interesting piece of code that overlays any Google Maps view of the earth with vector graphics.
It looks like any futuristic map from a late-70s / early-80s sci-fi movie. 🙂
» Inside Insides
Andy Ellison does some “Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Foods”
A great little find sent in by Cassie P.
[= cat + accordian]
Because the Internet.
» Google Maps Pac Man
Making the rounds but just amazingly well done. You can pick any street! (At least: you can now. This may be an April Fools Only situation.)
» Fake Self-Help Books
These are just great.
See you next week. Have a great (long) weekend.
