Trans­porta­tion

I believe that this is a 1960’s Velorex 350. You can get the con­fus­ing trans­lated from the Hun­gar­ian orig­i­nal here.

Very nice CB360T build out. Link to the build blog included.

Not the Cit­roen Picasso (a bor­ing com­muter car) but UK custom-car builder Andy Sander’s Picasso Cit­roen.

Ideas

This may make your brain warp but it’s a look at the state of the think­ing today. Attempt­ing to com­bine quan­tum physics and neu­ro­science in the quest to set­tle the argu­ment between deter­min­ism and free will.

Or if that isn’t your end­less debate of choice, how about who was right about the nature of our future dystopia? Hux­ely or Orwell? Recom­bi­nant Records pro­vides the key talk­ing points.

Pub­lic trans­porta­tion com­muters, bed­time read­ers, and gym-rats alike should know about longform.org. An archive of the best essay length mate­r­ial pub­lished in the past decade. There are sev­eral ways to access and read the mate­r­ial. I use Instapa­per on my  iPreciouses.

Art, Images, and Design

Some really lovely posters from the Empire Mar­ket­ing Board (1936–1933) and a pon­der­ing of the trou­bling images in these efforts to mar­ket the prod­ucts of the British empire to the sub­jects of the British empire. The com­plete col­lec­tion is avail­able at Man­ches­ter Galleries.

Crow on a wall in Spain. I love the blurry feather work.

Card­board mon­ster arms.

Ani­ma­tion

Good illus­tra­tor, good ani­ma­tion Shaun Tan’s illus­trated novel­las have made me smile. Now his The Lost Thing is being ani­mated. If you have some patience left over from your week you’ll enjoy the trailer more if you get it from the offi­cial Lost Thing but it’s a flash site and takes approx 15 sec­onds to load.

Okay, we made it to Fri­day. Now to make it through the day,
