Welcome to the Friday Links… of the daaaaaamned!!!! [thunder]

Happy Hallowe’en Eve! ๐Ÿ™‚

I have some bad news: I have no game. I couldn’t find a halfway decent one for this week – especially not a Hallowe’en related game. So: my apologies. Last week’s game was pretty excellent though. ๐Ÿ™‚

So let’s begin.

World Leaders With Man Buns

[self explanatory]

Ahhh Photoshop…

Domino’s DXP

A pretty unique use of HTML5 to show off a custom vehicle made for Domino’s Pizza specifically with pizza delivery in mind. It features a built-in warming oven to keep your pizza order hot (140F) right up to delivery time. Some great interface design here. They already have quite a few of these on the roads in the US. (I don’t like Domino’s, but maybe others will pick up on this idea.)

Fabris Photography: Renaissance Auto Mechanics

This is making the rounds. Photographer Freddy Fabris wanted to pay homage to Renaissance portraiture and composition, so he did so using a group of various auto mechanics. Was going to link to his website directly, but the interface is terrible. Some great, great work here.

The Wah Wah Machine

In support of the Peanuts Movie (why?) comes this silly web thing that takes whatever you type and expresses it in the quasi-voice of adults in the Peanuts cartoon. A cute single-use website.

A couple of quick reads this week:

The Verge: How an episode of The Simpsons is made

Similar but different: The Binge Director, which writes about the process Steven Soderbergh goes through to conceptualize and direct a series of “The Knick”. Great stuff.

See you in a week, and a whole new month.
