Probably the largest number of GT2000s you’ll ever see together.
The Southsiders ride Basque country. Excellent pictorial, fab scenery, and a desktop-worthy image of three Commandos.
And a little wrenchmonkee love. #24, built for some lucky guy named Mark.
The direness of the need for coffee in the morning increases with the distance from your home coffee pot. Serious Eats provides a list of on-line resources for finding a better cup of joe than what’s on offer at the breakfast bar in the Holiday Inn. I particularly like Barista Exchange.
The hazards of the entrepreneurial spirit. Death Buy Lemonade. Chuckling will begin in 3… 2… (animation)

A round-up of Roman water works. 15 still standing (more or less) aqueducts in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.
Rampant consumerism gets a design edge. Pantone branded (and colored) VISA cards. Must have.
You should probably save this one up for nap time. Animalarium does Night Life. Happy, sleepy critters and the usual high standards.
gotta run… be nice to each other, m’kay?
Wretched excess, the new Porsche 911.
Would you leave this understated beauty behind if you were moving overseas? I think not.
Looking a bit too much like Wolverine in squidly guise, holding a white china tea cup, and rattling on. Road racer Guy Martin gives the BBC an interview and you get a snicker. (There’s a lovely easter egg in the video. Check the comments.)
Yeah, we put some sharks in our aquarium. We don’t think they’ll eat a whole lot of the exhibit. Uh huh. Look at what ate the shark. Ignore the ‘scary’ narration, the images aren’t gross, just fascinating. (homage to schneier)
Truly random numbers are the holy grail of cryptography. Quantum physics may be the answer. Isn’t QP the answer to everything? So now there are 42 truly random numbers. Maybe — or not. IO9 tries to explain how it works and why it matters. Violation of Bell inequalities… My head hurts.

These are so silly and so cute. Masaku Hori ‘s little waiting dogs that hold your fruit.
Fab black and white double portrait: Joe Lewis and Josephine Baker.
Rule 34: If you can think of it there is porn of it on the ‘net. Better than Rule 34: Batman porno. Not the Dark Knight batman, the late 60’s campy TV version. Complete with cheesy cartoons balloons that say Pop and Pow. Stunningly, this trailer is SFW.
… and that’s the end your week with the magpie.
Purple Helmets, the Isle of Man TT half-time stunt team. Very British
— in a Benny Hill, wellies and slickers, kinda way. (Sound)
Wrench Monkees begin building a bitsa. Where did that purple frame
come from? Updates as they happen.
Desmo double front-wheel trike. Very bizarre and headline writers take
note, no way in hell is this an ATV. More pics.
I love the tail treatment on this Triumph Thunderbird. Such a sweet, round butt.
This is one of the most consistently beautiful blogs that I know of.
There’s nothing more special about this post than any of the others,
but take a couple of minutes to enjoy the restful images and ideas .
La Tartine Gourmande.
Graphic novels and comics are, for me, the one compelling application
for the iPad. Here’s an example of why.
Bryce Wymer is the Art Directory for Digital Kitchen. They did a nice
animated mural for the 2010 Census.
You can watch them put the commercial together in this video.
He puts also puts huge chunks of his sketch books on his blog.
I want to be the red haired girl in Lynne Naylor’s happy wilderness pictures.
Visual, typographic pun, with a nod to Marley.
That’s all for today my friendly pumpkin wonders
