It is Friday again!

You know what that means…

Shooting Gallery SF: American Iconomics

Artists Akira Beard and James Charles create some pretty incredible portraits (Charles’s using real American currency) with a sense of sardonic wit. Some really excellent work here.

1928: England in Color

Using a process called “Autochrome”. These are pretty great!

Fast Food Maps

A Google Maps setup that shows the geographic distribution of fast food locations in the United States. It’s about what you might expect. I wonder if we check back in 10 years what it will look like…

Tank Trouble

If you’re (ahem) old like me you may remember that the original Atari console came with a game very much like this. Well it’s back, sort of. Very addictive.

Bonus Link!

I Love TV Intros

A collection of TV intro segments from the 1940’s to the 2000’s. An odd collection created without further background. Enjoy!

My sporadic holiday gift guide continues with the “Agenda 2016” daytimer. Yes, it’s a paper daytimer for day-to-day use, but it comes packed with obscure facts like “It rains diamonds on Jupiter” and “95% of the ocean remains unexplored,” all of which helps to inject some perspective into your busy day. Only 22 Euros.

Or for little ones, this Kampini, a mini camper van from Germany’s KickPack-shop. Only 79 Euros. Adorable.

See you next week everybody!
