A little something for my TopGear fan friends. Where’s Waldo got
nothing on this.
Fiat Abarth, sigh. One of my first experiences with sleeper was a
little Fiat 850 that ran like a scalded cat. Here’s what they are
doing now. Wanna rally?
More extreme transport. In this case moving the 200,000 pound antennas
for the ALMA array in Chile.
Since I already mentioned ALMA. Have a look around the official site.
Extreme astronomy. (And a bonus video of the above huge transporters.)
The search for the legendary “dark matter” has a new tool. A
scintillating bolometer. A weird little steam‐punky looking cylinder
with a blue light crystal. Obligatory Golden Compass references
provided in the report.
Premium doesn’t mean much any more. To wit the reactions to the feel
and pricing of Sony’s PSP Go. John Biggs does a good job of
summarizing the situation and chooses a premium picture to illustrate.
Art, Images, Architecture
Facebook is getting new digs in Palo Alto. Can architecture be
considered childish? Ugh.
Lester Young meets William Steig. I will spend the next hour hunting up an mp3 of this album. And then use the artwork as wallpaper.
A fence with the iconic image from the first Sci‐Fi film La Voyage
dans la Lune. Art, science, metal!
Weston Teruya draws fragmented, isolated images of, well stuff. Oddly calming.
Tagged as Lowbrow/Comic Surrealism. Eh?
Real (dead) bugs + small machine parts = awesomeness. Check out the
small wonders at Insect Labs.
Or, on a larger scale, the awesomeness of giant balloon creature
costumes. Mediocre time‐lapse making of video. Turn off your speakers.
don’t get eaten by the troll under the bridge.
