Vox Day

( Geek andLinks andPolitics )

I’ve never heard of this guy before, just bumped into his blog while Googling for something totally unrelated. But after reading this paragraph — a comment on wildly inaccurate temperatures recorded by NOAA — VOX POPOLI may be added to my blogroll, and my daily reading list… Needless to say, restructuring the global economy on […]

Scouting New York

( Links andOld Things )

Here’s another cool site featured recently by Neatorama that I can’t get enough of… Scouting New York. I work as a film location scout in New York City. My day is basically spent combing the streets for interesting and unique locations for feature films. In my travels, I often stumble across some pretty incredible sights, […]

Finally; Why The Chicken Really Crossed The Road

( Fun! andLinks )

I laughed out loud at this one. That bird is in for one rude awakening! Available as a t-shirt over at one of my favorite sites, Neatorama.

Animusic Pipe Dreams

Miss C. posted this video on her site over the weekend, referring to it as, “An oldie that never gets old”. Well, it may be old in Internet terms (2006) but I’d never seen it before, and it’s truly worth watching. And it turns out the animators — Animusic — has put out two videos […]

Daniel’s Big Trip

( Just Stuff andLinks )

Jalopnik linked to a great blog a while back; I had Really Good Intentions of posting about it, but apparently ADD took hold and the brain went on to other things as quickly as it usually does. I’ve decided that since I gave 11.5 years of my life to this country, and even lost body […]

Hemmings Auto Blog

( Cars! andLinks )

Another site I visit regularly is Hemmings Auto Blog. Always some photos of some great looking cars and interesting stories about them. It’s an offshoot of the ever excellent Hemmings Motor News; the place for buying or selling classic automobiles. Well worth a visit.

Renovo Hardwood Bicycles

I like bikes, and I like things made of wood. And holy cow, I had no idea you could combine the two on this level… I’ve seen some nice bikes before, but this… This is a thing of beauty. A work of art.       This bike was produced by Renovo Hardwood Bicycles, where else, […]
