The Don't Click It
website is all about designing a web interface that doesn't require clicking, just mouse movements. I've a feeling this is going to be counter-intuitive for most of us, it's getting to the stage where I'm going to start trying to click wastepaper baskets in real life soon...
won't make your embarrassing pictures
any less cringeworthy but it will make them look like polaroid snaps, which of course are never
It's a very long way off being part of the Lazylaces musical Friday, but I'd just like to say that this week I am mainly chilling out to The Magic Numbers
. I highly recommend them to you too. If they're chilling me
out this week
, they've got to be good.
Strindberg + Helium
are one of the strangest double-acts around
. While you might be pondering upon the deep philosophical mutterings of Strindberg, I'm thinking what a cute little critter Helium is. I mean, how can you not like him?
First up a quick apology: Sorry if there have been no posts for a little while, sorry if I haven't replied to your e-mails, and sorry if I post something you've submitted over the next few days without acknowledging you. I've been a teensy-weensy bit busy these last few days, including at the weekend (don't go there), and I will be for the rest of the week. Despite the disorganisation though I'm going to try and squeeze a few posts in. And with that apology I'm going to get on with it...
Le Building is a funny little film, lifted from the merely amusing to the truely awe-inspiring by some totally bonkers music (it really kicks off when the cat hits the pizza-guy). I heartily approve of anything that makes me start doing funny Russian style jigs around my living-room on a Monday evening.
I post whack your boss
for some friends who need it just at the moment (and that's whack in the Sicilian sense, not just the idly slapping someone kind of way in case you were wondering) [thanks kyle
Flash animations of a man in a suit
going mad. Doesn't ring any bells for me, no sir-ee...[subbed by thisatisfied
At one point in the recent past I started collecting together as many toast related links as I could find (you'd be surprised just how many there are - it's a common obsession) with the intention of posting a special toast related page. Don't ask me why, it was something to do with boredom and a toast dominated diet at the time. Anyway... enough of my personal daemons I'm sure I'll work them out at some point with some expensive therapy, I have to link to Toast In The Post
now as it made me giggle when I stumbled across it eariler this evening, and, hey, I admit it, I like toast.
Some people react to me calling out for tunes on a Friday by ignoring me, some take the piss, some send me nice links, and then there's Toby, who creates a whole Flash animated mix selector
. Guess which one of you I love most. Damn it, Toby even updates the songs so you periodically get a different mix. While this means that currently you get such goodness as Graham Coxon
, it means you miss out on cornelius
which he had on there just yesterday and it was the best track. Toby - please send me that track and I swear I'll send you back some great herbaliser
sound-bites I think you'll like. Anyway check out mixtape
today, you're sure to find something you like for a Friday.
The simplistic line drawing flash animation
and the music of Green Day combine to create something beautiful that exactly captures my hopes and dreams on a Friday. This one really makes me feel good inside - I must have replayed it ten times in a row by now [much love to meesle
In the words of Nadif, Jump'n'Rhyme
"A link for the Friday musical-ish update. A bizarre song, AND a game, AND, following the current trend, it's in a stange, funny language (German, in this case). And it's pretty weird."
I'll just add that to control the thing it's useful to know that the <SPACE BAR> throws microphones, and the cursor keys control movement.
After my total lack of musical links last Friday you guys totally came up trumps by sending me all sorts of weird and wonderful things for this week. I love you guys. Anyway, first up Tally Hall
a wonky rock band
. Damn weird is what their music is. Check out Banana Man (navigate thru media > video) for a surreal experience [thanks sam
