Monday Morning “Impediment to Productivity” – 20080714

Hi,

Straight in this week…

Ok we have all seen a demonstration of non-Newtonian goo (e.g., cornstarch and water) before, I covered this a while back, have a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2XQ97XHjVw to jog your memory. Now someone has put together cornstarch paste and a subwoofer. don’t you wish you had thought of doing it. I know I do.

Bob Geldof wrote “I Don’t Like Mondays” he also wrote a truly wonderful piece in the Daily Telegraph last week. He really is a good writer. And still angry. It’s good to see.

This one swiped a ton of time recently, I was trying to work out how they did some of it and of course make pretty pictures. I haven’t seen one of these for a while now and this program is really well done. What the hell am I talking about? Wasting time of course. Click here and have a nice Monday

Jools found this clip and I seriously expect to see a spate of these as the Olympics get closer.

Duggup was a lot of fun this week. Let’s face it though it always is. Jools spotted Dan Sultan on the ABC Sunday Arts show and I covered Charlie Parr (the Vodafone ad with the blues singer in the background). Head over to http://duggup.com.au/

Flash Game Dept:

Todays game is from Jools.

“Possible MMI material. I have the reflexes to compete with the worlds best but I either under or over shoot the pit lane – yeh right.

Love, Jools

I took one look at it, and of course it’s Impedimentia. We wont go into my score but do read the “How To Play” bits, helpful beyond belief.

One last piece of silliness… Bomomo is a web-based drawing software that you can use to blow the day and quite probably the week. You are given a bunch of visual tools, that you can freely use to draw anything that you have in mind a create your work of art, which you can later save locally in PNG or JPG format. Free to use, no registration needed. http://bomomo.com/

This thing is just way too much fun.

Well that’s enough for this week. Have a good one.
