Bringing you things that have me drunkenly infatuated. Or is it infatuatingly drunk? Either way, it's things and places I love.
For (probably a long) while, some of the links may seem like old news. This is because I currently have a backlog of pure awesomeness to sort through.
Everyone knows about the Google cars roaming around trying to get shots of our streets for their street view. Does anyone think about just what kind of things are recorded though? From the mundane store front to the totally weird events that can happen anytime. Jon Rafman is collecting the ones he finds in his project called ‘Nine eyes of Google’.
I’d say most kids grew up playing Monopoly. You probably started with the original version before finding other editions. There’s been quite a lot of different versions through the years, including artistic interpretations of them. Like this Web Lovers Edition.
James Hance has done some absolutely adorable Winne the Pooh & Star Wars mashup drawings, but this latest drawings takes the cake. It’s an ‘Up’ and Star Wars mashup and it’s so stinking heartwarming!
Need a project for the weekend? Do you also need a handy little carryall for your gadgets and cords? I’ve found the perfect thing for me! I mean, you... us... you know what I mean. Now to scour second-hand bookstores for the perfect cover...
One the mashup topic again, they’re releasing a Doctor Who and Star Trek mashup comic. Not really sure how I feel about this. While I am familiar with many things that are Star Trek, I’ve never really been that big of a fan of the franchise. I am though a fan of Patrick Stewart, so maybe it’ll balance out.
I loved playing pinball in my childhood and even though I never knew what to do with the end result, there was a special appeal about gumballs. So when I spotted this, it was a major flashback and it looks like it’d be so much more fun that just sticking 20¢ into a machine and having the gumball plop into my hand.
I know that there are lots of different styles of game controllers out there. Some function well, others don’t. Some feel comfortable in your hand, other’s seem like pure torture. Then there are the ones you look at and think, ‘What in the seven hells were they thinking??’.
Although, as unwieldly as it seems, the chainsaw would be awesome.
