Well helloooooo Friday! (…the thirteenth!!) [orchestra]

And welcome, to your Friday Links!

It’s another hot one where I live. Get ready.

Here we go…



This is a blog that documents paper models used in dioramas.

Some of them are quite intricate.

I wish I had this kind of time available to me. 🙂

Torn Apart / Separados

Torn Apart / Separados

“A rapidly deployed critical data & visualization intervention in the USA’s 2018 “Zero Tolerance Policy” for asylum seekers at the US Ports of Entry and the humanitarian crisis that has followed.”

A pretty comprehensive data visualization of the chaotic “zero tolerance” immigration policy currently in place by the US governement.

The credits are worth a look for a breakdown of how this all came together.

Mini Strandbeest Assembly Kit

Mini Strandbeest Assembly Kit

This is a model kit you can build in your own home.

What’s a strandbeest? Here.

2048 Solitaire

2048 Solitaire

The number matching of 2048 with the card stacking of solitaire.

I like it, and I’m also currently terrible at it.

There are mobile versions. You’re welcome.

And that’s what I’ve got. That’s it. Done. Kaput!

Well… for this week anyway.

Have a lovely Friday, and a spectacular weekend.

See you in seven days.


July 6th, 2018

Welcome back to Friday!

I know we’re done with all the fireworks etc., but what the hell: set some off anyway this weekend!

But first! Some links.


librairie_mollatThis independent library in Bordeaux started photographing their staff and other people matching up book covers with their faces.

Much like the “sleeveface” epidemic of a few years back using LP covers (covered here a few times.)

It’s pretty great!

h/t: Colossal.

Dead Coins

Dead Coins“A Complete List of ICO Exit Scams & Extinct Coins”

800 and counting. (Probably even more by the time I publish this entry.)

I was not aware of just how many scam bitcoin knock-offs there were. Crazy!

Faces Of Auschwitz

Faces Of Auschwitz“The goal of the project is to honor the memory and lives of Auschwitz-Birkenau prisoners by colorizing registration photographs culled from the museum’s archive and sharing individual stories of those whose faces were photographed.”

Colorization really does make things feel more present, more recent.

This is an important project.

h/t: Nag On The Lake.

Traffic Car Racing

Traffic Car Racing

A little clumsy in its design but it’s certainly a challenging game.

Avoid cars (duh), collect orbs.

Daily Itinerary Of The Killer In A Slasher Movie

Daily Itinerary Of The Killer In A Slasher Movie

“10:07 PM— I follow a couple of teenagers from the camp into woods. I know what they’re up to and I DON’T LIKE IT.”

And there we go. Links! On a Friday!

I hope your (not long) weekend is fantastic.

Happy July!
