Today is Friday.

Today we also bid farewell to all the Fridays in October. Good job everybody!!

And now: linkages…es….

Where ‘La La Land’ was shot in L.A., scene by scene

Where ‘La La Land’ was shot in L.A., scene by scene

If you’re a fan of the film, and especially if you’re in L.A., this is pretty cool.

Photographer Spends Eternity Waiting For Museum Visitors To Match Artworks And The Result Is Worth The Wait

Photographer Spends Eternity Waiting For Museum Visitors To Match Artworks And The Result Is Worth The Wait

Despite the long-winded click-bait-y title, this is a pretty great little find.

Similar, but yet different from the “Gallery Doppelgangers” from a couple weeks back.

Should I Work For Free?

Should I Work For Free?

A helpful (?) flowchart. Way more options here than I was expecting.

The 100 Meter Scroll

The 100 Meter Scroll

Note: You need a mouse with a scroll wheel.

A little “exhausting” (in a first-world-problems kinda way.) 🙂

Mr. Diacono (from Buenos Aires) creates some pretty amazing 3D generated models and animations. His latex face-punch loop has been making the rounds, but his other works are definitely worth a look.

These have been your Friday Links, for Friday, October 27th, 2017.

Have a lovely Autumn weekend everybody. And Happy Hallowe’en!

Happy Friday everybody!

One more week to Hallowe’en! ooOOOOOoooo…

And now: some links.

Gastaloops

Gastaloops

“It started as a small project, just to try a set up in After Effects.

“But it grew and probably outgrown out of my best expectations.”

These are wonderful.

Noni Noni

Noni Noni

You draw things, and this interface identifies and renders it into an image.

It also does letters.

Pretty cool!

Conor Nickerson: Childhood

Conor Nickerson: Childhood

“Myself hanging out with myself, c. 1997-2005.”

Conor Nickerson photoshops his adult self into snapshots of himself as a child, sometimes wearing similar clothes.

This is really well done, and making the rounds.

Super Hot Pellet Muncher 2000

Super Hot Pellet Muncher 2000

A weird adaptation of Pac Man. Everything moves only when you move, and it moves a lot faster than the original. A little challenging to get good at, but definitely addictive.

Bonus Link!

Travel Scratcher

Travel Scratcher

A wall map which is covered by scratchable gold foil, so you can scratch off the countries you’ve visited.

An ingenious, if messy, idea.

An extra thing I wanted to include was this episode of the “Hurry Slowly” podcast on RadioPublic.com. It’s an interview with Jason Fried, the founder and CEO of Basecamp, and the discussion covers a lot of extremely important points related to how we work, how much we work, and how to balance our work with a health, content life. It’s one of the most interesting conversations I’ve heard on the subject. People who know me know I work a lot, and usually for very long hours. This is the kind of discussion that could save your life. I found it really insightful.

And there we go! All Friday Linked Up!

Have a great Friday, a great weekend, and see you in seven days.

Friday…

…the thirteenth! [orchestra!]

And time for your Friday Links!

Native-Land.ca

Native-Land.ca

“Native-Land.ca is a resource to help North Americans learn more about their local history.”

Note: this can take a little time to load, but it’s impressive.

First nations tribe information overlaid on a Google map of North America. Start with just territories.

You can include overlays for certain treaties, and first nation languages, or you can select just one and investigate its history, culture, languages, etc.

This has clearly taken some significant effort. Well done.

Eiko Mori: Toast Art

Eiko Mori: Toast Art

“Eiko Mori Food Coordinator / Cooker / iPhone 7 / Kobe / JAPAN”

These are just delightful! She’s currently on a Hallowe’en kick and it is amazing.

If Dr. Seuss Books Were Titled According to Their Subtexts

If Dr. Seuss Books Were Titled According to Their Subtexts

Funny / concise

Universal Paperclips

Universal Paperclips

Your role is to be an A.I. with simple controls that lets you figure out the market for manufacturing and selling paperclips.

It’s hard to explain but I found it extremely addictive. It’s not really a game. More like an economic simulation? I guess.

It’s interesting.

It’s surprisingly making the rounds.

And that’s what Iive got.

Happy Friday everybody!

See you in a week.

Happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s already here again.

And where I live, it’s a long weekend. 🙂

And now: links!

The Nib: This Comic From 1990 Accidentally Predicted Trump’s Wall

The Nib: This Comic From 1990 Accidentally Predicted Trump’s Wall

Crazily prescient! Amazing. And on top of that, a pretty great piece of work. From a July 1990 issue of Heavy Metal Magazine.

2017 Fall Foliage Map

2017 Fall Foliage Map

For the continental US only. Hmph.

Great idea though!

I could only find an Ontario map for Canada. It’s pretty well done though.

JustPano: Where Is Waldo? 360-degree Version

JustPano: Where Is Waldo? 360-degree Version

Oof that hurts my eyes. But it’s a fun variation on the puzzle. 🙂

Super Mario Icy Tower

Super Mario Icy Tower

…winter is coming…

Surprisingly challenging. Also note: this was not created or endorsed by Nintendo (“Softendo”?!) so it may not last long.

Fun!
