Only 18 shopping days until Hallowe’en!

Let’s get to the links…

NOAA: Sea Level Rise Viewer

NOAA: Sea Level Rise Viewer

“Use this web mapping tool to visualize community-level impacts from coastal flooding or sea level rise (up to 10 feet above average high tides).”

An informative, and definitely scary tool.

Happy Hurricane Season everybody!

Bargain Blasphemy

Bargain Blasphemy

A tumblr that reimagines classic pop and rock album covers as death metal.

The Onion: U.S. Citizens: ‘We Love When Thing Taste Like Other Thing’

The Onion: U.S. Citizens: ‘We Love When Thing Taste Like Other Thing’

“‘Chip Taste Like Salsa! Soda Taste Like Fruit!’ Rejoice 325 Million Americans”

Ohhh Onion. How I’ve missed you…

Tunnel Rush

Tunnel Rush

You merely steer, and avoid obstacles.

I find it kind of meditative.

And there we go! Friday! And Links! And Friday Links!

See you in seven days folks.

It’s the first Friday in October. And where I live, it’s a long weekend for Canadian Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Let’s begin!

Josh Usmani: Funny Money

Josh Usmani: Funny Money

“Ten years ago, Josh Usmani quit his day job to pursue a career as a full-time artist. Months later, the 2008 economic meltdown sent Josh’s aspirations into uncertainty. His lifelong monetary issues eventually became the inspiration for using currency as an art medium.”

These are fantastic, and quite detailed. I love it.

There is also a coffee table book coming out that you can order.

For Detroit

For Detroit

“The Open House was a historic occasion for Ford to announce its renewed commitment to the city of Detroit with the purchase and future renovation of Michigan Central Station.”

“As you read through history, and view images, words move off the screen onto the grand arches and ultimately culminating in a 65ft barrel vaulted ceiling.”

This is a great art / community installation piece.

The Ringer: The Horror Oscars

The Ringer: The Horror Oscars

“The Best Scary Movies of Every Year Since 1978’s ‘Halloween’”

This list is pretty great.

The past six years have had some awesome entries too.

Helicopter Game

Helicopter Game

Sort of like a mashup of Flappy Bird and Choplifter.

It’s hard. But also sort of meditative.

Bonus Link!

Wow’en Wilson

Wow'en Wilson

“Hear the ‘wow’ & guess the movie”

I find this super challenging.

Have a lovely Friday and an excellent (long?) weekend everybody!
