Update. We're going to be out of town for a couple of days. Normal service will resume on Friday. Click through the current photolog for some visual stimulation (warning, big page). We've no internet access (probably), so please send us exciting stuff for when we get back...

Cabinet Magazine would like you to buy a strip of land in New Mexico. See their current issue for details (and read more here in this New York Times article).

Photos of things at photodude / loving, lavish scans of old cookery books at Brushstroke.tv / postcards of France, via six different ways (which also points us to the concept of 'digital shoplifting' - see also here. Apparently, you need not buy the magazine to get the look, just whip out your picture phone and 'steal' the pages you need. There are 76.73 million mobiles registered in Japan (2002 population: 126.97 million)) / build your own canard pusher aircraft at Cozy / enter whining, a weblog.

Senses of Cinema, an online film journal / diminished responsibility, a weblog / the story of the Dog Island hoax (see also details at the invaluable Snopes, which should be the first port of call when a normally sensible friend forwards you an email promising you untold riches for giving Bill Gates a helping hand) / solar mirages in Finland, via Coudal / mo Cupco characters have been released.

The Cross Atlantic Report, always evocative photography, especially when you have a sneaking suspicion you know the nature of the events depicted within... congratulations to all - looks fab / Coke. Izzit (at Openbrackets), another example of some poor corporate wonk being artfully maneouvered into making an utter fool of himself / World of Waldman, a great weblog, which points to the entertaining Sunday Express memo.

Ten Verses is 'dedicated to promoting intellectually-engaged criticism of visual art and architecture'. We liked Roger Emmerson's Haunted Houses, which makes the link between Vincent Price, Frank Lloyd Wright and Jacques Derrida. All articles are available in pdf format / Glasgow architecture and Edinburgh architecture: keep up with developments in Scotland's built environment / photos of the flash mobs, the new media happening du jour: I, II, III.

Itís been a good week for Cryptozoologists (but then if you read Cryptozoology.com it's always a good week), what with the Chilean blob and now a Bigfoot in China / the monkey media report, a culture blog culled from the copious links of The Great Team, a weblog that goes from strength to strength. We touched on this some time ago, but since the Spring, this realtor weblog has blossomed in popularity. One can imagine that blogging takes up a significant chunk of their time, stopping them from getting out in the California sunshine and realtoring, or whatever.

Screen printing is back. Watch this video of the poster-making process over at Coudal, or visit the studio website of the printers themselves, The Bird Machine. More screen printers (with links) at Aesthetic Apparatus. See also this great collection of Cramps posters.

An interesting overview about the infamous Blair Hornstine case at The Weekly Standard (much discussed at metafilter, but strangely alien in concept to most people in the UK. Not having valedictorians, or grade point averages, or a culture of hugely frivolous lawsuits for that matter, means that this story was always a bit weird). What grabbed our attention most was the description of the location as a 'one-Starbucks town'. Snappy, but not an original a phrase as we thought.

Now we didnít know that B&Q stands for 'Block and Quayle' (thanks haddock). Nor, it seems, do most of the employees. Ask them next time you're at the till (providing there aren't 20 people behind you tapping their pieces of 2x4 on the ground in irritation) and revel in their blank incomprehension. Block and Quayle sounds like an alternative comedy duo from the 1960s (for example, Coyle and Sharpe).

HMS Carnage, a steampunk video game that never saw the light of day (more images, culled from the portfolios of the original artists). We can remember actually waiting for this game with great anticipation, checking the projected hardware requirements, reading the previews. More computer game art / Bram's epic lego design page: space, air, water and land. Check this model of Fallingwater (visit the original house).

In flight correction, a weblog / Anna Held Audette, 'painter of ruins of our time' / admirable minimalist design at a working project (with attached weblog) / The Well-Made Book at Reservocation / lots of little engines / Scream Magazine, 'a magazine for art, photography and literature'. See especially John Isaac's photos of the American South-West.

Geed Up, summery music we can highly recommend.
