Hey everybody! Over here!


And here are your Friday links.

» A Better Queue

“A Better Queue lets you filter Netflix’s instantly streaming movies by Rotten Tomatoes’ Tomatometer, number of reviews, years, and genres. It also lets you add movies straight to your queue. Made with Ruby on Rails, the Netflix API, and the Rotten Tomatoes API.”
This is a brilliant, brilliant idea.

» Faber Castell Artist Pen art by Chan Hwee Chong

These are fantastic. Recognizable works of art recreated in a single large, nuanced spiral by this impressive artist.

» Maskull Lasserre: Decoy Study

“For his latest body of work, artist Maskull Lasserre acquired a number of souvenir sculptures, the kind found in antique stores or craft fairs that have been mass-produced by anonymous artists, which he then used as a foundation for his own artwork. In a process he refers to as “re-carving,” Lasserre removed details from the artist’s original work to reveal intricate skeletal structures”
[Hat tip to Colossal.]

» Glitch Dungeon

A somewhat typical 8-bit dungeon platform game, but with interesting glitches that help the player complete certain tasks. Fun!

Bonus Link!

» Hatnote: Listen to Wikipedia

“Listen to the sound of Wikipedia’s recent changes feed. Bells indicate additions and string plucks indicate subtractions. Pitch changes according to the size of the edit; the larger the edit, the deeper the note.”
This is both soothing and fascinating.

Here’s to yet another wonderful Friday.
