Great idea.

It’s US Thanksgiving Week Friday!

Which I guess is called “black Friday”, but I just call it “Friday”.

Fascinating, I know… Let’s begin!

» Dronestagram

Surveillance images from numerous US drones which are processed through Instagram filters. Kind of fascinating.

» A Conversation with Michael Manoogian

“Whether we know it or not, we all grew up with Michael Manoogian’s design work in our lives. Since the late 1960s, Manoogian has been hand-crafting stunning and time-tested typographic logos for clients in the music and entertainment industries.”
I liked it. It’s getting harder and harder to imagine how things got made before Adobe’s Photoshop or Illustrator were invented.

» Ants Magazine: 50 Amazing reflections of things on water droplets

Sent along by Jason L.

» Achievement Unlocked

From the people who brought us the This Is The Only Level series.
Funny and addictive.

Bonus Link!

» Instant Cosby

“Click anywhere for a fresh Cosby.”
[self explanatory]
Odd. Funny!

Happy Friday and have a lovely weekend everybody.

Friday’s back in town! And not a moment too soon.

Link time…

» 100,000 Stars

A Google Chrome experiment which plots the location (using astrometric databases and catalogues) of 100,000 “nearby” stars.
Note: called a Chrome experiment because it predominantly works in the Chrome web browser.

» 2012 Photomicrography Competition: Winners

Another year, another “Cosmarium sp. (desmid) near a Sphagnum sp. leaf (100x)”
Quite beautiful.

» No Pattern Required: Sara’s Dream TV – The Kuba Komet!

This is the craziest vintage TV I think I’ve ever seen. I wonder if their creators are still around. Insane.


Another challenging game from the creators of QWOP and CLOP (both previously featured on the Friday Links.)
Sent along by Gino F. Great find.

Bonus Link!

» Literally Unbelievable

“Stories from The Onion as interpreted by Facebook”
I’m finding more and more frequently there’s a portion of the population who have no idea that The Onion is not a genuine news website. It’s kind of funny / sad.
Sent along by Eileen K.C.

Have a great weekend everybody. And remember: Only 39 shopping days until Xmas…

Happy Friday.

Phew. Hello Friday! At last…

If you’re like me, you probably want a few links right about now.

» White People Mourning Romney

[self explanatory]
Thank you again, Tumblr.
Speaking of Romney, how about this little mishap? 😉

» Look At This Photograph

Upload an image and Nickelback will sing their iconic single “Photograph” while holding it.
You’re welcome.

» Creative Photos of Kids Enjoying Make-Believe Activities at Home

“British advertising photographer Tim MacPherson has a wonderful series of photographs showing children having fun in imaginary worlds created out of ordinary objects. Kids are seen couch surfing, skiing down stairs, and horseback riding on shelves.”
Adorable! Sent in by Bonnie P.

» Into Space 2

Help launch a rocket. Sounds easy…

Bonus Link!

» StarWarigami

Some of these are pretty impressive.

Enjoy the rest of your mid-Autumn Friday everybody.

See you next week.
