Speaking TW200s. Here’s a cute little run-about with the best farkle yet, a surfboard rack.
Another sweet (not so) little bike. Must be utilitarian Monday around here. CB750.
Science and Technology
Google is launching another salvo in their preemptive war on ISPs, this YouTube speed tester. I haven’t been able to find a good enough explanation of the terms “Your Location” and “Your ISP” to be certain what the numbers mean for our sad little rural stub of the information superhighway. What do your numbers say?
Art, Image, and Design
Drainspotting. Infrastructure art. Manhole covers in Japan are not just functional they are often colorful. A soon to be released book and a companion website.
Also from Japan, GreenMarkers. The site is entirely in Japanese but you don’t need to be able to read the text to be able to follow the path from the image of a field of grass through the prototype to packaged product. Best bookmarks yet.
From the 50’s, another beboppin’ illustrator David Weidman. I’ve added the new retrospective of his work from Ginko Press to my wish list.
Modifiers, a 12 minute pilot for an animated series from two of the people behind both Ren&Stimpy and the Powerpuff Girls. Nickelodeon is stupid. (Video — Sound)
To infinity and beyond… meh, maybe just the gym.
