The Real Getaway Tour is a loving re-creation of a virtual re-creation of London (discussed here). I hated the Getaway, having been well and truly swept up by the pre-release hype. Admittedly, the recreation of London's streets was remarkable, but the storyline and acting were crude and, frankly, unpleasant. There was none of the humour or sense of freedom that underpins a game like Vice City: the characters you play had no redeeming features at all and the body count just racked up and up until it all felt rather sad and pointless. I also blame the game for making me drive badly in the real world. Related: Multi Theft Auto.

Staying with shoddy gangsterism and exploitation: Pulp magazines (all via oldtimey). Visit this huge French site, with classics like Amazing Stories, VISCO (the Visual Index of Science Fiction Cover Art). We have to deep link into their frames, but browse titles like Coven, Wonders of the Spaceways and Tales of Tomorrow. Finally, ThePulp.Net, a huge resource of information, including a brief history.

Random snippets. The McMansion comes to Australia - buy your own slice of this brave new suburbia (you'd be hard-pressed to find a more mixed-up name for a style of house than 'Balmoral Tuscan')/ all you ever needed to know about your washing machine - for those perilous days after your two-year warranty expires (via br) / the ill-fated XB-70, the 'Great White Bird'.

Little did we know, but our Kudzu mention yesterday just scratched the top tendrils of the cult reputation of this rampaging plant. It's also the name of an online magazine: Kudzu / big shiny bikes at Meccapixel / elegant photograms by the Neasden Control Centre / we like Lost and Frowned's Found Slide Foundation.

Historical images. The bridge over the Carriso Gorge on the San Diego and Arizona Railway / miniature books / inter urban wreck from historic Albion Michigan / huge collection of aeroplane diagrams in Nasa's Dryden graphics gallery / the Antique Small Engine Collectors Club, with gallery / the Tragedy of the Dodo, with gallery / more up to date: old computer collections.

The incredible pencil drawings of Andrew Holmes. These probably have to be seen for real to be appreciated - there's an exhibition starting at Londonís Plus One Plus Two Galleries on 10 September / issue one of Bonus Magazine / many art links / Uncarved, an industrial music weblog.
