A bright, sensational flash. One minute or less.

Spaghettibabe (NSFW?)

See, this is why I do this. I know people don’t like “everyone gets a trophy,” but this is one case where everyone really does. (Related: Slimy Spawn. Also NSFW? Has a shopping cart.)


507 Movements

Illustrations of five-hundred-and-seven different mechanical pulleys, gears, cogs combos. (Via Imperica.)


How Golf Explains Trump

Well, for a 72-year-old, he’d be a six. Six or seven. So he’s good. He’s a good player. He’s among our best presidents ever to play golf. But he wants the world to think he’s fantastic.

I think the best lies are the ones we all get to be in on.


Lingscars 24Hr Webcam

Totally decadent constant live stream, a UK office bathed in constant audio-video bombardment.


Luming Hao

Observe how a personal page can just be a quick slam on a piano.



One of the first comics I remeber seeing on the Web—back in the 90’s. Clearly made in MS Paint. Completing it is not a problem—there is a random generator that mashes unrelated frames together.


The Book of War Devices

This book isn’t enormous—but it’s old and musty and it goes here. It’s baffling: how did this Renaissance age compendium of drawings by Johannes de Fontana survive? Infantile drawings of inventions—some weapons, but many dazzling theatrical projectors and masks. (Via Imperica, which also pointed me to the The Codex Atlanticus, a much larger collection of drawings by da Vinci.)


Every Noise at Once

‘…an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 3,295 genres by Spotify as of 2019-08-03. The calibration is fuzzy, but in general down is more organic, up is more mechanical and electric; left is denser and more atmospheric, right is spikier and bouncier.’


Found Photos

‘The Found Photos Archives consist of my filtered view from thousands of images downloaded via peer to peer filesharing networks.’ I had no idea there were filesharing networks of photos. This is a pretty wild collection. I love it. (Via Linkport; see also Some Photos of That Day.)


Harriet Russell's Envelopes

I’m still looking for a good link that shows this project—to send mail using ‘encrypted’ addresses in the form of imaginative puzzles. Lovely, puzzly, adding enjoyment to the proletariat worker—it’s all there.


Altering Carboard Microscope Slide Mailers

This woman - a collector of articulated paper dolls - decorates cardboard mailers once used to transport microscope slides. Part of this is the nostalgia of an age when it was more common to receive microscopic things in the mail; part is the wonder of this particular blog’s chosen topics.


Inversions by Scott Kim

Upside-down and mirror image font stylings. I’m also linking this because it’s a node to other type resources and some of the author’s essays interest me.


default filename tv

The algorithm here is simply: select only the videos on YouTube that have kept their original filename from the camera. (Such as: DSC_5443.MOV, IMG_0490.MP4, etc.) In other words, these are untitled and uncut personal videos. I watched one of a truck backing up. And then one of people doing the limbo. (Related: youhole.tv, astronaut.io, petittube, Incognitube, /r/imgxxxx, Neave.TV; or, Forgotify for Spotify tracks that have never been listened to.)



Kind of like a sketchpad for beats and squiggles. You can also think of this as a self-contained ‘instrument’ in a way.



I will NEVER forget Charlie McAlister. Oh boy his zine showed the way to zine—returning fish sticks through the post with grateful letters enclosed, hobo-styled restaraunt reviews where you just felt sad for him. He sang about falling down the stairs and cheese sandwiches like a regular person and now he’s gone. I’ll never meet you; but I’ll think of you when I’m walking in the muddy creek behind my sister’s house. We haven’t lost his zines and songs, no how. Related: Unread Records, Secret/Charlie+McAlister.
