Morning Linkage (Feb 2)


The 2 door sta­tion wag­on (or is that 3 doors?) has always been a bit of an odd fish. But Ferrari thinks that it’s the answer to the demand for a four seat super-car, the FF. And Pininfarina can make just about any­thing beau­ti­ful. I think 12 cylin­ders is all the jus­ti­fi­ca­tion it needs. With Ferrari-in-the-snow video good­ness Woot!

I’m a total suck­er for Nick Clements videos. Pretentious as hell and too hip for their own cool. Still… pret­ty scenery, pret­ty bikes, and gor­geous cin­e­matog­ra­phy. Featuring Cro Custom’s BS1.  (Video)

Chopcult  pro­vides a fine set of images and info on the BS1 and the builder, Cro Custom’s, site has a cou­ple of oth­er more typ­i­cal­ly chop­per bikes.

Arty inte­ri­or shots fea­tur­ing motor­cy­cles, and the bikes are for rent to use in your own shoots. The care­ful­ly dis­tressed Crossbones is, well… actu­al­ly, a real­ly appeal­ing piece of rolling sculp­ture. Gentry Dayton is cre­ative direc­tor of EvaGentry.

Art, Images, and Design

Ray Caesar is one of the many painters cur­rent­ly doing pal­lid, big-headed girls in per­il. Much of a much­ness, except that once in a while he does some­thing that stops me dead. Like the sleigh and courtier in  Homecoming. (Pardon the hell­ish URLs — they are shortened ;)

View the full show, A Gentle Kind of Cruelty, at Jonathan Levine Gallery’s web­site. (Some NSFW when zoomed)

Elaborately com­posed pho­tographs can go either way for me. Some are just noise, oth­ers like the first two of these from Simon Proctor’s Daystar series cap­ti­vate me. The videos cre­at­ed from the stills and oth­er ele­ments I’m very much on the fence about.

I’ve always loved the Burr puz­zles. Now there’s this… Burr tables!

More about the Burr puz­zles. (oh lordy that’s one seri­ous­ly ugly web­site but it’s all I’ve got…)

Moving Images, and Animation

Did you know that there was a Japanese ver­sion of the Flintstones pro­duced in the 1980s? Nope, nei­ther did I. It’s a giggle.

Dancing robots… I said, Dancing Robots. New ident spots for (UK) Channel 4’s, T4 pro­gram­ming. (Video and loud music)
