It is Friday again! And there went February. :/

Here are some websites to share…


“Weekly Animation project grown from a love of other people’s photos.”
Some truly bizarre work here. Yikes.

» Nukemap

Drag the marker to a location (or select from several presets), set a yield (in kilotons) or select from a preset, and detonate.
It’s really informative, and timely.

» Yuki Matsueda: Works

Some really interesting work here. Lots of “encased in plastic” items that are inexplicably beautiful.

» Grey

“The short story of a boy and the girl of his dreams”
A bit slow but a neat little challenge of a flash game.

How is it already Friday again?! Crazy!

But: I’ll take it!

» The Top 100 Most Strange, Odd, Perplexing and Unintentionally Funny Vintage Valentine Cards EVER!

Uh… well! These are certainly interesting. 🙂

» Sarah Esteje’s Pen Illustrations

Wow. Really striking.
She also has a tumblr site where she’s getting lots of requests for prints. Well done.

» Polygon Heroes

Some great poster art depicting well-known comic heroes and other figures in low-res output.
It’s oddly expressionist. I like it.

» Choose Your Weapon 5

A really, really addictive platformer flash game. Very fun.

Bonus Link!

» Animals That Do People Things

Ahhh tumblr… 🙂
Some of these are great.

Happy Friday everybody.

I don’t know about you but I am pretty happy about it being Friday.

Your mileage may vary, but… y’know: Friday!!

Here are some links for you.

» AdLand: 40 Years Of Super Bowl Commercials

[self explanatory]
Yes, I am one week late. Oh well. (Go Patriots! ohhhh…)
I was going to only include this in my Friday Videos mailing, but I thought it was actually about more than just the videos. Really well done.

» Print Magazine: 50 Best Color Sites for Designers

And there are way more than 50 out there. Yikes.

Long, but interesting reading.

» Snake Nyan Cat

Take the old Nokia standby game Snake and pair it with Nyan Cat (and add some really crazy – and loud – music) and you have Snake Nyan Cat.
Frustratingly addictive.

» The Buttolph Collection of Menus

This is a gallery from the New York Public Library featuring menus from a variety of restaurants dating from 1851 to 1956.
Sent in by Ash, who stumbled upon it randomly and is obsessed.

Have a great weekend, people.

» Websites From Hell

[DEFinitely self explanatory]
And by “hell” we mean “the early 90’s.”

Happy Friday everybody. Have a great weekend.
