Well hello there Friday folks.

Here we are: November!

And Friday!

Aaaaaand go!

Hunger For Words

Hunger For Words

anyone interested in dogs, speech therapy, Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC), animal psychology, or new ideas. Watch, read, and follow along on this exciting journey of teaching my dog to talk!”

Stella is an 18-month-old “Catahoula / Blue Heeler mix” dog who uses a custom-built soundboard to communicate in English.

This research is fascinating, and ongoing.

There’s a pretty excellent Instagram account as well.

Making the rounds, and rightly so.

The Size Of Space

The Size Of Space

Another virtual display of just how mind-blowingly large some objects in the known universe can be.

Considerable: The Other Side of Sesame Street

Considerable: The Other Side of Sesame Street

Behind the scenes photos and interviews on how they achieved the puppetry for Sesame Street between 1970 and 1971.

It’s a lot more work than you might think. They definitely make it look easy.

Cusors.io

Cusors.io

A weird multiplayer game where you and others work your way through mazes or other simple puzzles using collaboration and wits.

Suggested by Kate S.

And that’s that, people. All out of links.

Have an excellent weekend everybody.

Happy Friday everybody!

Happy belated Hallowe’en, and happy November!

Only 27 days until the US Thanksgiving, and only 53 shopping days until Christmas.

But also 22 days until #Wolfenoot!

Let’s begin!

Raw And Rendered

Raw And Rendered

“Raw & Rendered is Joey Camacho – a freelance 3D motion and graphic designer based in Vancouver, Canada. He has created conceptual and creative design work professionally for reputable global brands as well as passionate local companies.”

Beautifully realized.

There is also an online shop.

Slave Rebellion Reenactment

Slave Rebellion Reenactment

“On November 8-9, 2019, hundreds of re-enactors will retrace the path of the largest slave rebellion in United States history, embodying a story of resistance, freedom and revolutionary action.”

This would be the German Coast Uprising of 1811 in Louisiana.

I find this super interesting. It’s a harrowing historical event that doesn’t get much coverage ever. You can join in also!

Places of Residence for Accused Witches With Timeline

Places of Residence for Accused Witches With Timeline

An interactive map of Scotland. Caution: It takes some time to full load.

Interesting! It also lists detention areas and torture methods in certain locations.

If you want to learn about a real “witch hunt”, this is a pretty good start.

Crush To Party

Crush To Party

Weird game name.

Sort of a “Wario Wares” style game where you only have seconds to complete one or another task: either crush every object, or click to make it match other objects.

Stressful! But addictive.

And that’s that! November’s first Friday: Linked!

See you next week everybody.
