The Sidewinder. Yup, Barris, still wrong. (The site includes all of the Barris designs from your childhood. The Munsters through General Lee. The front page has music.)
There are only two pictures here, but it’s not often you get to see an Excelsior under the sky.
You just know that this cat was the height of cool.
Osedax roseus is a bone boring worm that lives on the picked over remains of a sunken whale carcass. Adaptation is stunning in it’s variety. And no, it’s not weird to read about a finger sized red worm and repeatedly exclaim — that is so cool!
Two pieces of poetry, very different provenances, very similar messages.

I’m not sure about the hamster wheel portion of this cylindrical housing solution but the bit that rolls over to change from a desk and chair to a bed is just what I need for my office. Nap-time!
Yuko Shimizu at drawger introduces us to another of her long list of on-line friends. Benjamin Gudel (u with umlat) Most of the images in this gallery are from a Carhartt campaign. Really.

An interesting, and violently green, custom treatment of a Triumph as hot rod.
