Hooray for fridayyyyyy!

Here we go…

» Ikea Hacker

Featuring some creative and unintended uses for Ikea products.
Sent in by The Stoob (who’s on a roll lately.)

» $50 Paint Job

Using nothing but 3 quarts of white rustoleum paint and a whole lotta elbow grease, this car fanatic did his own paint job for a measly $50 with impressive results. (It probably cost more since he had to buy a new buffer.)

» The Hottest Female Chess Players In The World

[self explanatory]
Based on user votes. What an odd concept.

» Xiaoxiao Police

Fun, tense, stick figure shoot-em-up. Yee haw!

I hope you have enjoyed your Friday links.

Have a great weekend.

Friday at last!

Awayyyyy we go!

» We Feel Fine

Fascinating art installation in which users post how they’re feeling (often in poetic style) and you randomly get to read them. You can narrow it down by geographic location, gender, weather, etc.
There’s a very cool interview with the creators of this site.

» The 213 Things Skippy Is No Longer Allowed To Do In The U.S. Army

A few examples:
51. Not allowed to quote “Dr Seuss” on military operations.
102. Rodents are not entitled to burial with full military honors, even if they are “casualties of war”.
Insane.

» Gravity

A bit complex. This is for you NASA types. And needless to say: it’s addictive.

» 1024 Cheerleaders

“Here is a cheering team which shows you a grand tifo, generated from your favorite image file.”
Don’t know what a “tifo” is? Maybe go here.

Happy Friday everyone!

Fridayyyyyy at last. 🙂 And I’m back from Vacation. [ahhhh…]

Here goes!

» Tengu USB Lip Sync Dude

Uhhh… self explanatory? 🙂 It’s weird that’s for sure.

» Spectrum of Work that I can do While Drinking Wine

Also a decent blog in its own right…
Sent in by The Stoob (hi Stoobie!)

» The Chronicles Of George

“George is, quite simply, the worst helpdesk technician ever.”
Quite funny. A little cruel perhaps. But still funny. It even has a discussion board.

» Mad Shark

You are the shark. Move your mouse to move the shark, and hit your spacebar to bite. Addictive and fun.

Happy Friday, and have a great weekend!

Happy Friday!

A note that next week will sadly have no Friday links, as I will be on vacation in fabulous Quebec.

Here we go!

» The Picture Of Everything

An odd and fascinating piece of artwork by Howard Hallis. It’s still in progress.

» Bald Guy Greetings

Subtly funny greeting cards. A sample for Valentines day:
Front: You complete me
Inside: And I don’t mean that in the overly used Jerry Maguire kind of way. I mean it from the bottom of my heart. My life truly would not be the same without you. But I do wish you were less controlling.

» Redneck Neighbor

Originally sent to me wayyy back in 1999 by Eric B.. It’s still up, and still funny / sad enough that I thought it was worth sharing. It’s quite long but definitely entertaining.

» Gridlock

I’ve had this on my Palm for close to a year as a game called “Traffic”. It’s addictive and frustrating. 🙂

Bonus Link!

» Turn your hamster into a fighting machine!

[self explanatory]

Have a great weekend Friday people!

It is Friiiiiiday! Whuhoo!

Today’s link-fest is largely photographic because that’s what seemed to be cropping up the most lately.

Here goes…

» Projections On A Nuclear Plant

Really beautifully executed. Must have taken a bit of time to set up.

» Medium Format Lego Pinhole Camera

Sadly: no posted photographs taken with said camera, but yikes. This obviously took quite a bit of work. Also see the 35mm Lego Pinhole Camera

» Milk Meets Coffee

One of several very stylized photography galleries by Irene Müller. Several others worth looking at there as well. You can buy prints of these and other works by this photographer.
Sent in by Laura.

» The Ball

Steer a ball towards a specific goal. Problem is: you can’t see the whole path to get to that goal. 🙂
From the makers of the Dyson vacuum cleaner.

Have a fantastic weekend everybody!

Hello, and welcome to your Friday links.

Are you sitting comfortably? 🙂

Here goes…

» Nickelback Self Plagiarization

[Mostly self explanatory]
This one is old but it’s still superfunny. Thought it was worth posting since enough people had asked about it.

» MC API

A website which will “rap” any url you enter… in Japanese. I’m not making this up. Also: the term “rap” should be taken with a grain of salt.
Set in by Minh.

» 171 Starbucks

Some people go to Starbucks every day. Comedian / Filmmaker Mark Malkoff did the unthinkable. He made a short film in which he visited and made purchases at 171 Starbucks stores in Manhattan in one day.
Yikes!

» Gravity Pods

Starts off super-easy, gets a lot harder. Very fun and addictive, if a bit slow.

Happy Friday, Friday people.

Happy Friday!

Today’s Friday links are out a little earlier so I can attend an appointment.

» Icovia Space Planner

Build out floorplans of your living space on the web. Modify it over time and try out different furniture orientations. Fun!
Sent in by Mel (allll the way in Australia)

» Portable Apps

Tiny versions of many common applications so you can install them on a USB key and take them anywhere. Save all your data to the usb key and not the computer’s hard drive. Some really smart applications on here.
Sent in by Kent Romero

» The World Bubble Records

Man: There’s a record for everything… (Most people in a bubble?! Yikes!)

» Orb Avoidance

Avoid everything. Your cursor cannot touch the outside border, the balls which are attracted to it, or the grey boxes. A very zen kind of game.
Sent in by Jennidub, who is horribly addicted. 🙂

Enjoy! And happy Friday!

Friday….

THE THIRTEENTH!!! [Orchestraaaa!!]

Here we go…

» The Splasher Speaks

Interesting!

» I Like Short Songs: Music For The Impatient

In which the author manages to select and burn 100 songs onto a single CD. Full music download is available including artwork.

» Eboy

Tons of pixellated isometric graphical goodness. Caution: long page loads.
Sent in by Ana.

» Bloxorz

Tricky, much harder sibling of the likes of Cubrius or Tetris. Superfun and heavily addictive.
Fantastic!
Sent in by DAM.

Enjoy your weekend, Friday people.

Happy Friday, Fridaylinkers!

Let’s begin…

» Pictures Of Walls

Some interesting and often funny graffiti photographed by users around the world.
Sent in by Mia.

» LoopTracks

Calling itself an “interactive music video”, it’s more of an installationist music presentation. If you spend enough time with it it produces some fairly cool, noise-based beats.

» The Health and Medical History of President Abraham Lincoln

[self explanatory. And ?!?!]
“Sleep talking”? Really??

» 99 Rooms

Very hard to describe, and infinitely clickable. You can also buy a CD of their haunting, ambient background audio.

Have a fabulous weekend!
