Some Friday linkages to warm you up…

» Tangerine Panic

Dodge as many as possible. Sure: it sounds easy…

» OddCast Text To Speech Demos

Choose a language, choose a character voice (including accented voices.) Watch and listen. This must have taken a bit of time to create. Note: you can only use this a limited number of times. It’s pretty funny trying a french voice with english phrases.

» Vinyl Data: Videogames from an LP

In the late 70’s / early 80’s, numerous (predominantly British) vinyl releases featured a track at the end with data audio on it which resulted in a playable videogame for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum home computer. Nerrrrd alert! Pretty neat idea though.

» Who’s Who of Victorian Cinema

An incredibly thorough compendium of historical data on a film industry at a time when I wasn’t even aware that one existed. It even includes a listing of Victorian film projector styles.

Happy Friday!
