Not just any text to speech site. They replicate – fairly accurately – anime and cartoon voices as well as several celebrities.

This is amazing!

12 Sunsets: Exploring Ed Ruscha's Archive

“Originally captured as the medium for Ed Ruscha’s creative work, the more than 65,000 photographs selected from this archive present a unique view of one of Los Angeles’ quintessential streets, Sunset Boulevard, and how it has changed over the past 50 years.”

Quite an interesting project. I wonder how many other cities this would be possible with (using existing archival imagery.)

I don’t live in New York, but if I did this would be a godsend!

Live subway status including real-time subway train location.

A pretty great making-of video is available as well.

Stackhouse

Stackhouse

A fast-paced stacking game. Stack until you can’t anymore.

It’s challenging! Kind of tense.

As you can tell from my score, I’m not very good at this one. 🙂
