Artist Inaki Aliste Lizarralde painstakingly recreated the apartments and homes of classic TV shows (and two movies). Why? Why not?! Are they good? Yes! Here are a few great ones with a link to the full list below.
File this under WTF>Haha>Huh. This guy sings a LOTR appropriate (?) edit of I Dreamed A Dream in a near perfect yet creepy-ass Gollum voice. Enjoy:
Looks shady or like a new piece of design but actually, this is an antique. Amazing.
Here's a proposed map of a 220 MPH train system. This was found at First Cultural Industries (i.e. this isn't being built anytime soon). It does make you think about train travel; if this was a reality, would your consider a 7 hour ride from LA to Texas instead of a 2.5 hour flight?
Apple is hosting a 3-week sale featuring some of the top GTD apps out there. Dive in and get productive this year! This weeks Apps include:
Clear, Things (our favorite), 2Do, Due, Todo, TaskPaper, The Hit List and BreakTime.
Kerning describes the space between letters. Design and typographically minded folk are aware of the subtleties this micro-art offers but can they pass a test on it? Luckily, there is now a game to test your skill. I surprised myself with 3 scores of 80% and a 100% Very exciting indeed. Give it a shot to test your eye. Found at Neatorama.
Michael David Murphy has a favorite dead song. Seems he took the time to compile a years worth of every version. Now you can hear every version of Tuning from 1977 in chronological order. Thanks? This is what happens when you have time on your hands in the tour off-season. You can listen to the entire song(?) here. Its only 92 minutes long I guess that means they spent an entire show per tour just tuning.
Moses Vs. Santa. Who's got the flow to stop his foe? Santa buys gifts for everyone to celebrate the birth of Jesus (I wonder what Jesus gets Santa on his birthday). Moses parted a sea and freed slaves. On the other hand, Moses killed a bunch of kids and got lost for 40 years (there is a good explanation (excuse?) for that though). Santa is sort of creepy; he watches you sleep, is morbidly obese and threatens you with coal. You decide:
"A screaming comes across the sky". If you haven't read Gravity's Rainbow then take a quick sec to do that now. All good? Sweet! So now its clear how exciting (and impressive) this interactive map is. If you cheated and haven't read the book in the last few seconds then I will help you out a bit. A portion of the plot highlights an interesting finding. Seems the map of one Tyrone Slothrop's sexual conquests align perfectly with the map of bomb attacks in London. Perhaps you have no interest in one of the greatest works of fiction in the 20th century; if that's the case, appreciate this for the research and for just how busted London was in WWII. You can hardly tell if you go there today.
Few games would warrant a camp-out for a midnight release but this could be an exception. Too bad its nto real. Sorry; just had to let you know up front. These are doodles (wow mine REALLY suck) made by Dynamaito which were posted on DeviantArt.com
Based on what I see here I believe I would buy this. I hope someone at Capcom has seen these.
Ok this is simple. Upload an MP3 (or choose one they've pre-loaded) watch math happen to it then listen forever. I could explain it better but just try it. They say its "for when your favorite song just isn't long enough." Yes its that but its visually interested and it essentially becomes a live remix station. Just try it already.
Tired of sitting and memorizing music theory? Sing it! Hooray singing ("but I play sousaphone. now i'm sad and alone instead of just alone" ). You don't actually have to be a good singer, Just watch the video:
Essentially its just a fun way to connect your intervals. Plus its a holiday song so bonus points to us for relevance! I remember having to learn intervals by connecting them to songs but this goes a bit deeper. Well done.
