Welcome to Friday everybody!

And it’s officially Autumn (in my hemosphere of the planet.)

Definitely feels like it already, too. I miss Summer and it was only a few days ago.

This week unexpectedly included two that have to do with Lego. It is what it is.

Let’s go!

Legendary Call of Duty Maps Recreated in LEGO

Legendary Call of Duty Maps Recreated in LEGO

Holy crap this must have taken months and months to complete.

Juho Könkkölä

Juho Könkkölä

“Folding ideas into reality”

The Finnish artist is an Origami master!!

Holy crap his work is amazing.

There are also video of his process, which is a lot.

Lego Ideas: Antique Cash Register

Lego Ideas: Antique Cash Register

This is currently classified as a “Lego Idea” but holw cow this should probably be an official set. Brilliantly conceived.

Relic Splatter

Relic Splatter

You can perform “jetpack” jumps by shooting your gun downwards to get to some hard-to-reach places.

Reminds me a little of Prince of Persia. Super fun and challenging.

And there we go!

Friday Links! Alllll figured out!

Happy Friday. And see you next week!

Welcome to Friday!

And welcome to a reduced Friday Links. I had a slammed week this week so I sadly only have three links for you.

Here we go!

Miguel Marquez Outside

“Public Projects – Michael Pederson”

Mr. Marquez (Pederson) creates realistic miniature city signs for things like pigeon landing spots, drain spouts, etc. Also quite lovely miniature living structures.

Update Faker

It’s not April fool’s day yet but keep this one in the back pocket.

Choose the OS and then hit f11 on the browser to make it fullscreen.

Space Huggers

Space Huggers

A side-scrolling platformer where you can also blow up your environment.

Challenging and fun.

And so there we go!

I hope your Friday is awesome, and that your weekend is calm and relaxing.

Happy Friday!

Well happy Friday everybody!

And it’s Friday! Yay!

Links time let’s goooooo…

“Can you watch the movie with your parents?”

[self explanatory]

Handy!

Where is this dish from?

Where is this dish from?

You’re presented with a photo, a list of ingredients, and a selection of possible countries.

The sheer volume of countries that make curries makes it super challenging. I like this!

Sent in by Tara P., but also apparently making the rounds.

The Oral History Of Idiocracy, Mike Judge’s Time Travel Triumph

The Oral History Of Idiocracy, Mike Judge's Time Travel Triumph

“In 2006, idiocracy predicted the future.

“The only problem? It did too good of a job.”

It is kind of amazing that this film got funded, produced, shot, edited and released. Even pitching this movie today would not get it anywhere.

Fantastic.

Tiny Town Racing

Tiny Town Racing

A weirdly designed game where you avoid cars and obstacles, collect reward items, and can power-up.

It’s fast!

My only complaint: why is it autoscrolling when you try to center the actual game? Stop doing that!

We did it you guys! We linked up Friday!

Happy Friday! And have a fantastic weekend.

See you next week.

Welcome to Friday everybody!

We made it! It’s September now. Woooo!

And I have some links for you. Let’s go!

Phone Photography Awards 2021

iPhone Photography Awards 2021

I am late to the game with this one but there is some pretty excellent work here.

It blows my mind how good the cameras are on mobile phones right now. And the editing capabilities on most smartphones. Astounding.

Luke Jerram: Glass Microbiology

Luke Jerram: Glass Microbiology

Large, intricate, beautiful glass sculpture representations of a variety of known viruses.

Originally created in 2004, the artist recently revealed the obvious new addition of the SARS COV-2 virus this year.

Plus there’s a lot of other work there. Really well done.

Sainsbury Archive

Sainsbury Archive

How interesting! This UK grocery giant keeps an archive of its food packaging and advertising imagery going back to he 1950s.

Dead Estate CLASSIC

Dead Estate CLASSIC

A fun, cartoonish little shoot-’em-up.

Sort of addictive, and can get frantic the further you go.

And there we are! The first September Friday Links in the books for 2021!

I hope you’re all doing as well as you can be.

Have a great (long?) weekend, and see you next Friday!
