Nearly the weekend...

Ahh, that Friday feeling! I don't get it so much in my current job, but I still vividly remember those days when I'd wake up, sigh, and think of nothing else but the coming weekend for the rest of the day. God, I couldn't wait... Sadly, this would usually happen on a Monday, and I'd have to get through the rest of the week, each and every tedious day tainted by disappointment.

Still, thank God for self-employment. Oh, and here are some links:

Second-person tubular

Maybe you'll have already seen this on BoingBoing, but the Ultimate Machine just had to be on here. It's the most wonderfully pointless thing I've seen all week :) And according to the latest update on its creator's site, you'll soon be able to have one of your own... erm, if you must.

Another one that's been doing the rounds: an automated bike park in Tokyo.

At times like Friday afternoon, if it's any consolation, you have Mr T's sympathy. Or something like that. Mostly he just want's you to watch his telly programme, though.

And some more viral nonsense, as Cadbury's eggs go to the movies (more GooTube than YouTube).

Random bits and pieces

Chilirec: like TiVo for internet radio, said some site or other. Can't remember which one, though, but that pretty much sums it up.

The world represented in the form of URL country codes (with posters available for $30).

If you can't afford PhotoShop, can't get the hang of the free online Express version, or would find having a GIMP icon on your desktop a tad embarrassing, there's another good free alternative:

And if you're still in a photographic frame of mind, why not supercharge your camera? Assuming you have a Canon, that is, and don't mind voiding your warranty.


Grow isn't just a puzzle game; in fact, it's a whole series of puzzle games, in which, as far as I can work out, you place combinations of objects together so that they, erm, grow and interact. Actually, I'm not really sure what's going on at all, to be honest, but it's all very pleasingly odd. UPDATE: Hmm, I don't even think it's a puzzle game... It's definitely wonderful, though, no doubt about that - inspired, Flash-based madness :)

Not much at the next site yet, but if you're a fan of both games and Penny Arcade it might be something worth keeping an RSS-fed eye on. Or if there isn't a feed, I suppose you'll just have to, erm, remember to check-in now and again.

Movie Magic

An online collection of visually striking title sequences.

Trailers, recut and mashed-up at Trailer Mash.

New endings to old movies.

A selection of links from WebZen's Movie Zen post.

And finally...

At last, we're free! We can all stop our endless clicking and do something else instead: someone finally found it.

[Tries to think what else to do]

Oh well, I suppose, we could always start again from the beginning...
