A recurring feature in which I present a collection of
miscellaneous crap err, interesting things to look at that I have lovingly and carefully curated for your enjoyment. For some of these entries, I may have spent upwards of one minute cutting and pasting a URL and thinking of a twelve word comment to accompany it. I hope you appreciate my efforts.
“Puck has joined the army but lacks discipline so he must be punished for what he has done.” Some Glee whipping/flogging slashfic by Kristain Abel. Or perhaps you’re more of an Adam Lambert fan? ::shudders:: (via LiveJournal image feed)
The Mustang Junior, a gas or electric powered ‘toy car’ manufactured 1965-1967 to match that year’s model. Only 600 or so were ever produced. You can learn more about ‘em at Junior Central (there are other miniature promotional car models to peruse on the main page) or maybe you’d like to watch the first-ever Pizza Hut commercial featuring a 1965 Mustang Junior.
Take a few minutes to read a fantastic comic by Rebecca Sugar, “Don’t Cry For Me I’m Already Dead,” apparently pulled from her defunct tumblr blog and saved on this person’s blog. It’s got great art (which is unfortunately stretched & squeezed in that guy’s WordPress template – click each comic page to see it in proper proportion), good writingm and an overall weird style & vibe to it. Remember kids: Everything does not always come up Milhouse. (via Splitsider).
Ohhh! By Chris Scarborough, an illustrator with a very cool style. (via GP LJ thread)
It feels a little odd to say you “like” something about a tragedy, but this is a surreal photo from the Costa Concordia grounding. (Getty Images / FILIPPO MONTEFORTE, via Buzzfeed)
Here’s a lovely typewriter ribbon tin from the olden days, back when people had typewriters, ribbons, and tin. I post it not only because it’s a lovely little design, but also because I find circular layouts to be especially challenging. This designer did a bang-up job. I guess the jetplanes encouraged you to… uh, type faster. (via strawberryluna & Draplin Design)
As you might guess from comic strips I’ve published in the past, I approve of this message. (via Steve Chanks)
Some parting links: Here’s a site that will give you relevant statistics for any given number, which is handy for metaphors and such. Here’s a nice piece on the future of computers by Cory Doctorow. Or how about cool 3D-printed toy robots you design online (via Steve Chanks)?. How about one of the all-time greatest headlines? Maybe you’d like to read about the unsexy introduction of Erectile Dysfunction treatment (via Bill Childs)? What? What’s that? You’d prefer to see the depraved underbelly of the Internet in the form of a bad NSFW 3D rendering of a man having sex with a dinosaur? Well, all right. If that’s your cup of tea, then fine.
