Friiiiiday! At last. 🙂


» The #1 Song On This Date In History

Choose a date (your birthdate, for example, down to the year.) This site provides an iTunes link to the song that was #1 on the Billboard charts for that exact date. Pretty exhaustively researched, and a neat idea (even promotes the purchasing of long forgotten songs.) Of course not all songs are represented on iTunes. The selections go back to 1891 or so, but iTunes does have some dating back as far as 1935.)

» Old photos of everything in the wind [late Edo try…]

It’s all in Japanese, but it’s pretty straightforward: Either upload an image, or provide a url to an image, then hit the blue button below. It turns any photo into one resembling an early Daguerrotype. Very cool.

» Taaz.com

“Taaz.com is a fun, easy-to-use website that gives women the opportunity to ‘try on’ the hottest makeup and hairstyle looks from the convenience of their homes.”
This is a pretty interesting use of technology.

» Compulse

“Drop the different blocks on the stage to affect the direction of the ball. Try to use as few as possible, but you may use as many as you want.”
Very slow moving but definitely addictive.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

» Ten Thousand Cents

“Using a custom drawing tool, thousands of individuals working in isolation from one another painted a tiny part of the bill without knowledge of the overall task.”
Kind of intriguing, to me at least.

» Cooking Monster: The Last Meal on the Titanic

CookingMonster.com dissects the last meal’s menu and provides indepth tips on how to recreate it. Kind of fascinating.

» Magic Pen

Addictive crayon physics game.

Happy Friday again, everyone. Have a great weekend.

Heyyy Springtime!

Here’s to a nice, warm, refreshing Friday.

Here goes…

» Sidewalk Psychiatry

“A routine trip can prompt reflections on everything from future goals to last night’s dinner conversation.”
Bizarrely entertaining. The rest of that blog explores design and other issues. Very cool.

» Super Mario Question Blocks

Make them yourself, hang them everywhere, confuse and delight people.

P.S.: No coins will pop out of these boxes. caveat emptor!

» Defendius Door Chain Maze

“I’ll get it in a sec!”
Crazy, crazy idea. 🙂

» Katamari Damacy: Online

If you haven’t played the original on PS2, you are missing out. This is a cheaper, 2d version of the game. Still quite fun.

Enjoy! Happy Friday everybody.

April! Yay!

Let’s begin…

» Garfield Minus Garfield

A bit odd. Most of these end up funnier (and a little sad) without the main character in place.
Suggested by numerous subscribers. This has gotten quite a bit of coverage lately.

» Poplar Pups

[formerly Chilly Dawg]
“A healthy ice cream alternative for dogs.” No joke. 🙂 Why not get your puppy some Puppy Nutter ice cream?

» Giant, Unknown Animals Found off Antarctica

Pretty fascinating that they’re still discovering new deep sea species all the time. Very cool story.

» Facial Expression Simulator

[Self explanatory] Requires Java.
Sent in by Ashy, who has evidently been playing with it for hours.

Happy Friday, Friday people!
