It’s finally warm again today but you never know what the rest of the
winter may bring. For those of you who insist on riding not matter
what. The next best thing to a Zamboni.
Phil Rudge, writes about rebuilding a 1931 Rudge Ulster. Did you know
that EMI once owned a motorcycle manufacturer? I didn’t. Excellent
Vintagent write up.
More machine video. This time instead of building, it’s unbuilding.
Disassembling a Hyundai. Short and sweet. Light music.
Cars in camo look stupid. Except maybe this McLaren decked out for
winter testing in Sweden. Or maybe I just lust after the car.

Twitter aids science. Local twitter reactions to earthquakes leave
evidence for geologists.
The artists being ripped off by the record companies (in Canada) may
find relief and the rest of us may find vindication. There is talk of
the artists’ using the damage awards that RIAA has claimed in
copyright infringement cases as the basis for damages to be claimed in
their fight for payment. Ouch.
Art, Image, and Design
Holiday cheer — Mr. and Mrs. Cthulhu Claus.
Scrap booking brought collage to the attention of the masses. Here’s a

portfolio for some fresh monochrome work.
More book art. This time a set of 3‑D adventure stories carved out of pages.
Reg Mobasssa’s work is probably familiar to many of you. The
Australian painter has been putting out pop images for 30+ years. He
answers questions for Planet Blog and they provide a nice selection of
his work. (Vaguely NSFW — adam and eve)
More fun with computer animation software and Ninjas. Brett sent me
this one and owes me a keyboard.
Happy Tuesday campers,
