A collection of some well designed weblogs
for those of us looking for some design inspiration. At some point soon I may do a re-design, but I think it's born more out of a need to tinker than any great necessity. I would like to turn my back on the last of the <table
> tags in my design though. It's all a question of finding the time to do it though.
Androids may dream of electric sheep, but what do penguins dream
about? The cruelty
they suffer at the hands of Yetis, or maybe exacting their revenge
cute little interactive flash thing certainly suggests that the mind of the penguin is indeed a weird place.
What is it with penguins btw? They're one of those re-occurring Internet themes, like toast, that I find fairly inexplicable. I mean don't get me wrong I think penguins are kind of cute, and I love eating toast, but I don't really devote any off-line time to discussing them (with the exception of some time during my last job where a group of us become obsessed with adopting a penguin). On-line though they seem to take up an un-natural about of discussion time. Strange. At some point someone should study the psychology of why some subjects become so focused upon on the Internet.
And if only to add weight to my bizarre thoughts this is probably as good a time as any to mention that I'm in the process of planning a lazylaces toast 'special'. I've been saving up the exceptional number of toast related links I have collected to release all in one go. Just don't ask me why. I've already said I don't understand.
There seem to be huge quanities of discarded items on the streets of New York that inspire the web community. I had to raise an eyebrow at the fashion created with discarded umbrellas
], I wonder though what can be created with all these abondoned bicycles
? I'm now looking out for on-line pieces about London street junk being turned in art/fashion/whatever.
Pictures of funny signs or "photographs of signs
that transcend their objectivity to reveal our humanity". Amusing either way.
Two Futurama characters for the price of one with the Zapp And Kiff Soundboard

Google celebrate 's St. Homestar Day and other wannabe holiday's in Fark
's photoshop a Google logo for a ficticious holiday gallery
. Especially for everyone who missed the recent Fractals and Chinese New Year specials, photoshop and submit a Google holiday of your choice.
Just in case you missed the major new story of the day: Barbie and Ken are splitting up
after their 43-year romance. Mattel says the couple will 'remain friends'.
Hands-up who hasn't used, or been on the receiving end, of the "let's stay friends" line. No-one? I thought not. Personally I suspect Ken must have found out about Barbie's illicit affair with Action Man. B*tch.
This link is mainly for my own reference as high on my list of places I really must visit is San Francisco. This "vigin's" guide
seems like a great tour of the whole city and should come in handy. Also it's not often I'm considered a virgin ;o) If things go according to plan I may visit San Francisco next year, this year I'll be going to South Africa, but more on this some other time.
If you missed out on the Google graphics to celebrate the beginning of the year of the monkey why not check out the "The Fifty Coolest Apes Of All Time
" instead? ITV Monkey
would get my vote, but doesn't feature.
You may or may not believe in the BBC
, but whatever you think they make some crazy decisions
[especially for manly
One of those obvious questions
that's so obvious you don't even think about it. I won't give away the precise anwser, but I don't think there'll be any surprised faces if I let slip that it's wider than a pinapple.
