Hello!

There are no more Fridays in January. 🙁

But! There are still plenty of links!

Here we go…

This is every active satellite orbiting earth

This is every active satellite orbiting earth

[self explanatory]

A somewhat frustrating interface but very informative presentation. There are a lot of satellites floating around!

Europeana Radio

A free music app for you music history nerds (or recording history nerds, like me) who want an easy way to have immediate access to ~200,000 recordings from the Europeana.eu library of music.

There are some extremely rare, very unique recordings here. I’ll be testing this as background music for while. Should be interesting.

More info here.

Shakespeare’s World

“Transcribe handwritten documents by Shakespeare’s contemporaries and help us understand his life and times.”

This is “a collaboration between the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., Zooniverse.org at Oxford University, and the Oxford English Dictionary of Oxford University Press.” I am fascinated.

Slope

Note: for some reason will not work on Chrome. Works fine in Firefox though.

This is a tricky gravity / steering game. VERY addictive.

No bonus link this week. Sorry about that. They’re supposed to be special! 🙂

Enjoy your Friday and your final January weekend of 2017.

And until next week: aqenbpuu!!

Welcome back to Friday!

It’s going to be okay.

Because look! I have all of these links for you!!

Hunter Stabler

Hunter Stabler

This Philadelphia-based artist’s medium is cut paper. There are some incredibly complicated works here.

Astronaut.io

“Today, you are an Astronaut. You are floating in inner space 100 miles above the surface of Earth. You peer through your window and this is what you see. You are people watching. These are fleeting moments.”

An odd little web installation that randomly selects videos on youtube which have the lowest view counts.

Weird. But making the rounds. (Okay!)

 

Painterly

Find the different-coloured tile.

On normal – hardest setting, that is way more challenging than it sounds.

Flak Boy

Put destructive things near Flak Boy and attempt to inflict as much damage as possible.

It’s a bit challenging but also quite fun.

Bonus Link!

I Turned IKEA Lamp Into A Death Star

This is a how-to. 🙂

Looks great!

And a quick read on this US Presidential Inauguration day:

Why I’m Nominating A Necromancer For Secretary Of Health And Human Services

There you go. You are now Friday Linked!

See you next week. Have a great weekend.

Friday…

… the thirteenth!! [orchestra!!]

And time for your Friday Links.

Mystery Search

You enter a search, and instead of this site providing your search result, you get the one of the person who searched before you.

My test was “Mashed potatoes.” The result was “Snoop Dogg.”

Fun! Weird. Fun!!

Hugh Holland

Hugh Holland

“In 1975, when Hugh Holland first began photographing the skateboarders in southern California, he had already been living in Los Angeles for nine years.”

These are gold.

The Year In Memes

Including (of course) Harambe. Never forget!

Yeahboi

It is not obvious what you’re supposed to do here, but you’ll get it. And then you’ll always want to keep getting it.

This ate up an hour of my day.

I do not have a bonus link this week. It’s a new year!

A quick little read:

Odd Lots: Curious Objects Up At Auction. (Self explanatory.) Interesting!

A longer read (and fascinating!):

Facial Reconstruction: Police Use Found DNA to Create Suspect Profiles

That is fascinating. I love that there’s a reference to an art project from a few years ago which similarly had pretty accurate reconstructions of people’s faces. Bizarre!

There we go. I’ll see you next week everybody!

Welcome to the first Friday in 2017.

Links time – heeeeere we go…

The 100 best photographs ever taken without photoshop

[self explanatory]

Nice!

Daniel Cheong: Dubai Fog

These are just beautiful. You can order (expensive) prints as well.

The Online Knitting Reference Library

Check out some of the modeling shots here. Eeeeeyikes. 🙂

Suggested by Kate S.

Endless Boss Fight

Kind of self explanatory. Difficult! Addictive. Frustrating / fun.

Bonus Link!

Sourgrassbuilt: Bird Houses

“Sourgrassbuilt features home decor including birdhouses, bread boxes, and furniture created by Douglas Barnhard of Santa Cruz, California. His influences are mid century modern architects like Eichler and Frank Lloyd Wright mixed with the rich skate and surf culture in Santa Cruz.”

These are amazing. (And expensive!)

And this concludes the first Friday Links of 2017.

Ladies and gentlemen we are adjourned! [bangs gavel…]

See you next week. Happy New Year!
