Here we are already, the last Friday of January. That means only one and a half more months til spring!

Here we go…

» BumWine

Reviews of “beverages for the economical drunkard”.
Sent in by Laura F.

» Meat House

[self explanatory]
Sent in by Ashy.

» A rough pictorial guide to the coffee roasting process

This guy is serious about his coffee! Pretty interesting (I thought, anyway) for the multitude of us who have never roasted our own beans.

» Cursor*10

To win this game you need to actually assist yourself, by failing. Difficult to describe. You’ll see when you play it. Very challenging.

Enjoy! And Happy Friday!


Jan. 18th, 2008

Friday links time!

Here we go…

» The 25 Best Music Videos Of 2007

The sad fact that nobody aired any of these (well: I did see the Bat For Lashes one in an ad on MTV, but that doesn’t count) should be all anyone needs to figure out why the music industry is failing. Fantastic.
Note: Many of these are downloadable to your shiny new iPods.

» Overheard in the Office: The Voice of the Cubicle

A sample:

3PM Worst. Staff Meeting. Ever.
Office girl: Hey! I haven’t seen you in a while, how’ve you been?
Office guy: Oh, I guess you haven’t heard. Half my ear was bit off [turns to show bandaged ear].
Office girl: Oh my god, that’s awful! Human or animal?
Office guy: Human.

» We The Robots

“WE THE ROBOTS is a comic strip by animator and former syndicated cartoonist, Chris Harding. It is about the robots.”
Some hilarious work here.

» Ant Tracks

“To save the colony you must guide your ants and their booty to the correct tree stores using the network of twigs and branches.”
Some of these levels are insanely complex.

Bonus Link!

» Baby Toupee

[self explanatory]
And yes: you can buy them. The horror!

Enjoy! And have a great weekend.


Jan. 11th, 2008


Here we go!

» lyved.com: 20 Ways To Change The World

A good read, and none of the suggestions have to do with purchasing anything.

» Mark Lives In Ikea

[self explanatory]
“Mark moved in early morning Monday January 7th to the IKEA in Paramus, New Jersey and will stay for the week through Saturday January 12th.”
Sent in by Laura F.

» Apostrophe Abuse

Started in 2005, this site lists all kinds of poor usage of apostrophes, many of them shockingly provided by educational facilities.
Sent in by Marcy, who’s driven insane by this type of thing.

» Monsta Truk

Attempt to drive a very tippy cartoon truck without rolling it over. Addictive and frustrating (but fun.)

Happy Friday everyone!


Jan. 4th, 2008

The first Friday Links of 2008! Happy New Year, everybody. 🙂

Here goes…

» Sleeve Faces

In which people hold up their favorite vinyl LP’s and attempt to morph it to their pose. Or something. Some of them are quite funny.

» The Perry Bible Fellowship

Some insane, insane, funny comics from the warped mind of Nicholas Gurewitch.

» Patrick Winfield: Polaroid Composites

Fantastic (in my opinion. Possibly also in yours)
Some are purchasable as prints.
Sent in by Ash. (Also seen on BoingBoing.net).

» The Kitten Channel

“All kittens all the time”
This is a bit obsessive. It apparently has a bit of a following.
Sent in by Jennidub. (Awwwwwww?)

I hope your January has already been fantastic.

Happy Friday


Dec. 28th, 2007

The last Friday Links entry of 2007.
Heeeere we go…

» Stereotypist: 50 Answers

I can’t even explain why this made me laugh so much, but it did. Still does.
Stereotypist is a comic written by John Campbell. The whole site is worth checking out.

» Christopher Walken: A Very Walken Christmas

Insane! A bit of post-xmas hilarity.

» Stock Car Thunder

Unbelievable that this is a web game. Requires shockwave. This is as good as many console driving games I’ve seen.
Sent in by Ash, who is kicking my butt at it.

» Astronomy Pictures Of The Year: 2007

[self explanatory]
Breathtaking. The shot of Victoria Crater on Mars is outstanding.

Bonus Link!

A viral promo site for the new Batman film, The Dark Knight. Quite beautifully done.
Sent in by Jennidub (who’s a fan)

Happy New Year, Friday Links folks!


Dec. 21st, 2007

It’s an all-request Friday Links, since I was sent so many by so many of you.

This is the last Friday Links before Xmas, so I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, and whatever other holidays might simultaneously occur. 🙂

Here we go…

» Amazon Reviews of a Bic Crystal Pen (£0.13)

[Self explanatory]
Not sure why, but several (as in: 77 and counting) Amazon customers have chosen to write insane, funny and odd reviews for a common ballpoint pen.
Sent in by Bonnie.

» Ink That Stinks: Truly Horrible Tattoos

[self explanatory. And ew.]
Sent in by Cassie.

Some insane (and hilarious) interpretations of the Charles Schulz classic.
Sent in by Miko

Some of the stories behind these image are fascinating (to me at least.)
Sent in by Ash.

Terribly addictive. Swim your dolphin and attempt to gather as many fish with you for more points.
You can play against your facebook friends as well!
Sent in by Laura F.

Enjoy. Happy Friday, Friday people!


Dec. 14th, 2007

There are only two more shopping-Fridays left in 2007. 🙂

Let’s begin shall we?

» Electron Microscropy Unit Snow Page

Scanning electron microscopic pictures of snow crystals. Featuring my favorite: the Hexagonal plate with dendritic extensions. (Whut?!)

» Curious Expeditions: The Castle Builders

Castles built by a single person. There are some insane and impressive constructions in here.

» Clot Xmas

“For almost five decades, the Clot Family Christmas Display has been delighting residents and visitors in the South Florida area!”
It looks like they spend more on this than most department stores. Insane!
Sent in by Jennifer R.

» Serious Santa

“Guide santa through a goblin infested north pole and use a small arsenal of weapons to take care of business.”
Indeed! Very addictive shooter that just happens to have an Xmas theme.

Happy Friday, Friday peoples! And Happy Holidays!


Dec. 7th, 2007

Brrrr December!

But at least it’s Friday!! 🙂

On your marks… Get set…

» KittyWigs

Were mine still around he would claw my eyes out if I got him one of these. And he’d be right!

» Modern Gingerbread House

Now we’re talkin’! Why settle for that early 1900’s cottage style structure when you can get a more 1950’s suburban structure (complete with garage)?

» Terry’s Chop Shop

Yikes. The guy likes to chop things, and photograph (or video-record) them in extremely high detail while doing so.
He also has a Flickr gallery.

» Pimp My Sleigh

[self explanatory]
Not only can you trick out your fabulous Santa sleigh, you can also race it.
Look out for the dynamite.

Happy December Friday, people. Have a great weekend.

Draw your map level, then get to the flag. Addictive!
