Yes! I am back! All refreshed from a much-needed vacation in Halifax.

Here are the linkages! This is a mostly all-request Friday links.

» Starbucks: The Magic Bean Shop

A map showing how many countries are involved in producing a cup of Starbucks coffee.

» 10,000 Reasons Civilization is Doomed

[self explanatory]
Sent in by Courteney

» Lego New York City

Exactly what it says. Cityscapes of NYC made entirely of Lego.

» Paper CD Cases:

Enter album info. Submit, print, and fold into an elegant cover for your “summer jamz” mix. (yo?)
Sent in by Kent.

Bonus Link!

» Snakes On A Plane Voicemail Constructor

Bonus link – and one week late (sorry, vacation.)

Get Samuel L. to send a very specific message to friends and loved ones. Crazy promotion for a ridiculous (but entertaining) movie.

Happy almost-end-of-summer everyone. 🙂

And I get to take a vacation this week. So no Friday links next week. (Sorry folks.)

Heeeeeere we are!

» Mammatus Clouds

Sent in by Janet. I actually lost track of this one. These are a weird phenomenon that usually appear just after an intense hurricane. They look fake, but they are not.

» Balls!

Addictive! And kinda funny. And kinda annoying. But fun!

» Hidden Exposures

Yes, more artiness. Also a nice randomized user experience. Kind of obscure but I liked it.

» Maritess vs. the SuperFriends!

Maritess is their housekeeper.

Enjoy! Have a great weekend (and week.)

Holy Friday, Batman!

» Crash Test Olympics!

THOROUGHLY addictive.


This is a site that has lovingly archived all musical references within TV commercials. You can search for the company whose ad you saw, and it will show you which songs were played on the selected ads. Brilliant idea (in my opinion at least.)

» Scrambled Hacks

Very, very hard to describe. A device which re-sequences video based on input provided via microphone. The demo video is long but certainly worth the look. I first saw this in December but it’s making the rounds again. So I figure: Couldn’t hurt!

» Michael Kenna

A very dramatic landscape photographer from the UK.

Hooray for Fridayyyy! (And in my country it’s actually a long weekend. 🙂 )

Have a great weekend Friday peoples!
