Gaze Long­ing­ly at These Buicks of Yore. Well at the first three or four any­way. Clas­sic designs. After the 60’s Wild­cat it all goes down hill.

The Zae­ta 530. Now (or soon) avail­able in street legal two-up trim. There’s a nice video that fea­tures arty footage of hors­es, fol­lowed by the Zae­ta and a Porsche doing some seri­ous drift­ing in the dirt.

The Wil­son II. Extreme and prob­a­bly unrid­able but omg the pipes…

Notable espe­cial­ly for its ori­gins. Mohammed Sho­jaie’s Ostoure (‘Leg­end’ in Per­sian) con­cept bike.  Much of the artist’s oth­er work is includ­ed in Bloom, an Iran­ian on-line rac­ing game.


Jack Horkheimer — the Star Gaz­er — passed away late last week.  For some back­ground and a taste of his humor have a look at this Pro­file col­umn from the Jan 06 edi­tion of Astron­o­my. (PDF)

Look­ing back at earth from space. Wired Sci­ence presents a gallery of images of algal blooms. Damn we live on a beau­ti­ful planet.

off you go kiddies.
