Friday’s here! July is (virtually) here! The (hopefully, for many of you) long weekend is here!

Friday Links are here!

» Intricate Architecture Made of Hand-Cut Ledger Paper

“Looking something like wireframe models built out of paper, artist Jill Sylvia creates her insanely detailed architectural models out of a very unique material: hand-cut ledger paper.”

» Build With Chrome: Lego Google Maps

Build with lego pieces right onto a map of Australia and New Zealand.
This is crazy! Probably pretty addictive too.

» Endangered Languages Project

“Experts estimate that only 50% of the languages that are alive today will be spoken by the year 2100.”
I think this is a fascinating project. Sent in by many subscribers.

» Super Big Gun Adventure

I’ll be honest, it’s got a weird user interface, but it’s funny, and fun.

» 30 Best Tumblr Pics From 1992

1992 was 20 years ago. You are welcome.

Have a great weekend everybody. Welcome to July!

Welcome to Summer! Where I am: it is definitely hot.

And now we have some Friday Links.

» Underground New York Public Library

“The Underground New York Public Library is a visual library featuring the Reading-Riders of the NYC subways.”
A great, inspiring little tumblr site. Well done.

» Imgur: ?!?!

There is no title for this, and no explanation. A new photo is uploaded every Wednesday. It shows amazing discipline.
Suggested by Joyce K.

» F*** Yeah Fluid Dynamics

“Celebrating the physics of all that flows.”
Informative and entertaining.
Sent in by Dave I.

» Bomb Diver

If this was ever an arcade game I think I would have spent quite a few quarters on it. Fun and challenging.
Sent in by Trevor M.

Bonus Link!

» Hold Still! Baseball Action Shots from the late 1800′s

Old timey sports poses. I wonder how scarce these are? Kinda cool.

Happy Summer Friday everybody. Enjoy your weekend.


Jun. 15th, 2012

It is officially mid-June, and there are only 5 more days until it’s officially Summer!

And!! It’s Friday!

Here we go…

» Pointer Pointer

[self explanatory]

» NY Daily News: Historic photos that have been altered

Kind of fascinating.

» Yang Yongliang: Cigarette Ash Landscape

Pretty incredible.
You can see more of his works on his website.

» Ricochet Kills 3

Kind of like the oldschool canon game (align your shot, try it, adjust, etc.)
Addictive. For sure. You’re welcome.

» I’m Pretty When I Lie: Tip for modern adulterers

“Tip for modern adulterers: If you’re planning to cheat on your wife of 10 years by awkwardly hitting on the model seated next to you on your flight out of Los Angeles, make sure she isn’t live-tweeting the entire miserable experience to her 13,000 followers;”
Absolutely hilarious (and I guess for at least one person, devastating.)

See? Fun!

The rest of your Friday awaits. Enjoy!

Friday is like a summer day. Well… a late-spring-but-pretty-close-to-summer day. Right?

But forget all that: here are the Friday links!

» CameraSim: The SLR Camera Simulator

Actually a really smart little utility for those who are overwhelmed by operating an SLR outside of auto mode.

» Imgur: Money Art

Some of these are hilarious. All of them appear to be done by quite talented artists.

» NY Times: 32 Innovations That Will Change Your Tomorrow

A great article, and among other things, a great interface.
My favorite? A tie between the anti-slouch screen and the anti-theft handlebars.

» Side Quest

Kind of what you’re expecting in a flash game, but with some surprises.
Sent in by Ashy.

Bonus Link!

» Is it the Death of the Concert Ticket? [InfoGraphic]

Kind of fascinating.

Enjoy your weekend, and I hope it’s warm where you are.

Holy cow it’s Friday!

And June!!

You know what that means…

» fstoppers: 1960’s Celebrity Photos Found in a Closet

“These iconic portraits were discovered by Dan Oppenheimer, a stained-glass designer in Memphis. They are the work of the late Jack Robinson, who shot celebrity portraits for Vogue in the 1960s.”
Cybill Shepherd for the win.

» I Love Charts

Another clever, funny tumblr site.
Also check out their home-made submissions.
Sent in by Stewie.

» Crack Two: The American West, 150 Years Ago

There’s no description provided for this set of 34 photos, but they’re all pretty breathtaking.

» Frustrating Tiny Rooms

It takes some getting used to but it’s worth it. Very challenging.

Bonus Link!

» Weather Boner Of The Day

[self explanatory]
Beautiful / terrifying.

Have a fantastic Friday everybody. Summer is only two more Fridays away!
