I’m not actually that fond of the Triumph/Indian/Whathaveyou vintage bobber idea. So the Royal-Enfield item doesn’t do it for me. But some of the detailing and engraving on this machine are awesome.
1962 CZ 175 Type 450. Showing how old school bikes were adapted for dirt. Back before there were “dirt bikes”
I shall now die fulfilled. Mercedes-Benz, AMG and Ducati together at last.
This weird little bike is based, loosely, on a Ducati. Well done, or just random? discuss.
#16 — a snow crystal. Wow. And there’s the new to me Ornamental Baboon Tarantula. Big pictures of the small world.
Airplane food sucks because you can’t hear yourself think. Okay that’s interesting, but it doesn’t help does it?

An interesting attempt to change up the usual (failing) interface for door openers. Can we stop people pushing when they should pull and pulling when they should push? Maybe.
Cars 2 coming next summer from Pixar. It’s a spy story? Check out the logo reveal on the official YouTube channel. And there’s a website — of course. I hope it’s worth the hype. Pixar is awfully close to becoming predictable. And that would be sad.
The adventure game Machinarium (Amanita Design) was a mini-hit in 2009. Now if you want to have your own little robot you can. Papercraft score!
Abstract patterns combined to create a fox on a wall. Philippe Baudelocque does some fine work in Paris. His personal website has an awful moving background.
Ryca CS1 — what your Suzuki S40 is going to be when it grows up. Ryca’s own flash encumbered site.
Pretty girls and motorcycles. This time with history of Chinese cinema added.
A cut away illo and some photos of the Vincent Nero/Super Nero. The naked shot is outright frightening.

The ultimate shop door? Well it’s the bitchin’-est hangar door I’ve ever seen. Though it looks more like the local feed store than a house…
Have you ever calculated the cost of that weekly staff meeting? Do you know what it costs to let Dave from accounting blather on for an extra 12 minutes? TIM will do the math for you, in real time.

I love coming across an artist whose work can make me both very giggly happy. See the little bird rocker about half way down. And forehead wrinkling puzzled. The sheep in NY — um, that’s not even… Claude and François-Xavier Lalanne.
Extraordinary images of Venice. Liquid and mysterious. Giuseppe Desideri. (Most effective as a slide show.)
The surreal Zayatz and Volk. Russian kiddie cartooning from the 70s/80s era. The commentary is almost as whacked as the cartoon.
did you know that ‘play’ is the one key off on the right hand typo for ‘okay’?
