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”.

» Meat House

[self explanatory]

» 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.

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.”

» 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
