Morning Linkage (Oct 18)


Not near­ly enough infor­ma­tion on this super lit­tle Honda. But the brake disks prob­a­bly out­weight the engine by half.

Vincent over at Southsiders writes about the Shady Dell Vintage Trailer Camp in Bisbee Arizona. Excellently pho­tographed and pre­sent­ed. And there’s a “walk around” pre­sen­ta­tion on the Shady Dell site. Click on “Virtual Tour” in the top nav.

IP and Technology

Another patent troll — this time claim­ing to own the rollover. Webvention. Who the heck is… Interesting choice of price point for “licens­ing” and a real­ly poor choice of well-capitalized tar­get. But most­ly you need to see the troll doll post image cho­sen by the wits at Ars.

Art, Images, and Design

This most awe­some tin-can dog look­ing out the space port-hole is from Denise Van Leeuwen for Planet Adventures writ­ten by Krista Izelaar. Many more images from the book.

I’ll save you the cost of pur­chas­ing the October Harper’s Bazaar by send­ing you to this Wicked Halo recap of the fab­u­lous exploitation/pulp inspired fall frock lay­out “Mystery in the Moonlight.” (Don’t both­er with the music video at the bot­tom. Dullsville.)

More pulp pret­ties. From the first image in the col­lec­tion — lady in a leop­ard print biki­ni accom­pa­nied  by a black pan­ther in a tree — you know that Dave Stevens’ over the top females on pulp cov­ers are going to make your day. (NSFW — sadly)


Music video mash-ups are rarely worth the 3:23 that you put into watch­ing them. Not in this case. “Stayin’ Alive in the Wall” is proof that Terpsichore has a sense of humor. (Video/Music 3:23)
