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 three minutes cutting and pasting a URL and thinking of a four and a half word comment to accompany it. I hope you appreciate my efforts.
Rolling Stones recording Sympathy For The Devil. Filmed by Jean-Luc Godard in 1968. I’m a sucker for studio recording, especially when it’s old, being cut live, and involves the writing process. There’s five minutes or so of additional footage at the beginning of this clip.
Lovely! The first thing I did was look for the General Lee. See more photos of David Waller’s Car Atlas-Rainbow on flickr.
Also on the topic of McQuarrie, I never knew he had a cameo in Empire Strikes Back as General Pharl McQuarrie (walking in front of one of his own matte paintings) and even got his own action figure! How cool is that. (via Geekosystem)
The Peraves MonoTracer MTE-150 electric motorbike. Zoom zip. (more info here, via Pete).
Holy crap. Go look at all of the photos of this snowbound hall/monument in Bulgaria’s Buzludzha National Park. That shit is crazy. (via boingboing)
Here’s a great animation from 2004-ish called What Barry Says. One of my favorites. It’s unfortunately compressed but the animation style is lovely.
Some construction paper loveliness. I’m still not 100% sure how they pulled this off. (via Sarah)
* Very nice to-do list UI design: Clear for iPhone. Jealous I can’t use it.
* An old post, but a keeper: How To Be Creative by Hugh MacLeod
* Perhaps you would like to watch the opening credits to the TV adaptation of Uncle Buck (via Kurt Stream).
* Watch Herbie Hancock & Pat Metheny play “Cantaloupe Island” live (originally off 1964′s Empyrean Isles). (via Open Culture)
