A Bold Experiment

Friday Ephemera

Unnecessary explosions are totally unnecessary. // Undulating clouds. // No likes yet. The unloved of Instagram. // At last, your very own wearable drone. // People on a mountain, arranged artfully. // Cross the Alps by tightrope, in a hammock. // Volcanic shockwave. Watch the clouds. // Very loud indeed. // An archive of earthquake data and a map of quakes across the world. // AutoCompleteMe. // Mongolia’s golden eagle hunters. // Rock band stage configurations. // Big and curvy rides. // Big cats divided on the charms of Marmite. // “Human Be-In,” San Francisco, 1967. // Earthworm-eating leech of note. // Japan in colour, 1886. // “I think computers was far enough. We didn’t need to go beyond that.” // How Big Bird works. // And finally, I think these cats are broken

That's awesome. Not the cats; they're rather ugly and silly looking, but the site itself is cool. ;-)

That Earthworm-eating leech has me nauseous. I can't help but think of THAT scene in Peter Jackson's 2005 adaption of King Kong. Oh Godz, I think I'm going to puke the Coca Cola I drank now.

MEOW MEOW PET ME ON MY GLISTENING STOMACH! Oh thank you internet.

little bits of straw are sticking to it, which is not a problem with other types of cat

A meme is born.

Effects, baby.

Rumour tracking.

...these cats are broken.
If that's not symptomatic of global warming, I don't know what is.

Big cats divided on the charms of Marmite.

They're divided on whether you should just ignore Marmite or be actively repulsed by it.

[ Does scandalised face. ] You take that back right now.

Setting aside the wonder that is Marmite on toast, it’s also very good in stews.

David

And in chili.

Please look at Tim Worstall

Wherein we learn that Capitalism has produced Iggy Azalea.

I must have fallen asleep during that vote.

David

actually, she is the inevitable product of neoliberal capitalism,

The actually is what convinced me.

TDK

The thing about Iggy is before today I had no idea who she was, but luckily I now know that she irritates the right people. I'll have to buy her records now. And pretend to like them. Damn.

My wife has an extreme fear or worms and leeches. I think if i showed her that video she might never recover and i would be alone with the kids. "Honey, come here and watch this cool video!"

Ms Swift's 'cat' could well grow into a large pygmy hippo. Species confusion?

As for the Alps hammocks, I am sorely tempted to give each of those hipsters a copy of The Guardian and then cut the line....

Might appeal.

Well the artwork might anyway.

Also no extortion involved in this art, so perhaps artistes may not approve.

Neoliberal, like fascist, now just means whatever the writer dislikes about the world.

Oh. Merely Kaiju.

With that name, I was expecting corporate hiring disasters.

Good god man, get a grip. Next thing you'll be telling us you put mince in chili (people insist this happens but I refuse to believe it).

David

Think of it as cultural synthesis.

Minnow

Let's not. If you ever want a recipe for a spectacular, fool-proof chili (without bloody mince), let me know. It will take you four hours to cook but only half an hour's actual work.
