Phew. Made it!
It’s Friday! And where I’m from, it’s a long weekend.
Heeeeere we go…
A newly-released trove of 8,400 images from the Apollo program that put men on the moon in the late 60’s. All from a lone archivist in Virginia! Many of these are breathtaking, and others document the day-to-day of a moon mission. Fantastic.
“This is a digitized version of an in-store cassette tape that was played within a Kmart store. See the title of the file for the month and year. I worked at Kmart between 1989 and 1999 and held onto them with the hopes that they would be of use some day. Enjoy!”
This is one of the oddest internet-hoarding things I’ve seen in a while.
Because haven’t we all wanted to enter a chatroom as a horse?
“In the sixth installment of the Cube Escape series you find yourself in an old mill full of strange machinery. Interact with objects by using your mouse.”
I had never heard of this series of games but it was recommended by several subscribers. Not bad.
A couple of good reads this week, starting with a pretty bizarre one…
This was making the rounds for the past week or so and it is one of the loopiest things I’ve read in a long time. One caution: it’s from Playboy.com so… possibly nsfw.
A story by Rafael Zoehler which lists a series of letters his dying father wrote for key moments in his life-to-be. Heartbreaking and wonderfully composed.
Worth noting: the new Light L16 camera, which is a really different new form factor for a super high resolution imaging device. Not a sponsor. I don’t own one. The concept totally fascinates me.
P.S. I’d also like to inform you that there is now an iPhone app for cats.
Have a lovely (long?) weekend.
