I’m flexing my fingers this morning, getting back into the swing for you all.
I love the little Piaggio Ape. Here’s a brochure for the 1979 version. (In Italian on a Japanese site.)
The Pacific Northwest trials season started yesterday with the Plastered Purple Penguin in Marysville. This early trialer , a Bulldog, looks nothing like the Sherco in the shop. It’s a sweet piece of equipment nonetheless.
Lovely video of the northern lights. The World at Night has a ton of other amazing videos and photos.
Images, Art, and Design
University of Nevada has many interesting digital archives. This one is dedicated to comics produced for the government. There’s lots from Archie and Jughead, and some Cap’n America, even a Charles Schultz or two.
It’s in Portuguese but this is the best of the “Images of the Decade” collections I’ve seen. The South American perspective helps.
And another year-ender. 342 movies in 7 minutes. The sound track is awesome. (SFW/Music)
Happy First Monday my lovelies.
