Already: the last Friday in January. That was fast? (Just me?)

But hey: it’s Friday!

And there are links to visit…

PolyGraph: Hip Hop

20160129_flinksNote: make the browser window full-screen. This interactive timeline let’s you hear a mix of hip-hop singles from 1989 to 2015. It is a pretty amazing tool for exploring and diving into this music. It’s a collaboration with Billboard magazine. Great work.

Glittering Blue

“This is one day’s observations from Himawari-8, a Japanese weather satellite, animated in a loop. It shows the western Pacific, Australia, and parts of Asia, Antarctica, and Alaska as they looked on one day in mid-2015. It covers 24 hours in 12 seconds – a time lapse factor of 7,200×.”

I watched this for several minutes and bookmarked it. It’s beautiful.

Aydın Büyüktaş: Flatland 2015 – 2016

A great photo collection of landscapes folded onto themselves a-la Inception. Created by this gifted Turkish artist.

Taco Paradise

A bizarre, insane little game. Eat as many tacos as possible and grow to as large as possible.

Slllightly nsfw. (Cartoon feces.)

How To Win At Monopoly and Lose All Your Friends

The title is self explanatory but the process is interesting and not obvious. 🙂

I do not want to do this. But it’s an interesting read.

Have a lovely Friday everybody!
