eXTReMe Tracker
Monday, August 04, 2003
We have been contacted by someone eager to sell us 'Silent Domolition Agent' (sic), also known as 'soundless creaking agent'. It sounds rather amazing. From the instructions: 'Please stir a kind of cement powder matter with water, pour it a hole in rock or concrete. After a moment, rock and concrete will rend themselves.' Makes a change from endless viagra spam.

We are honoured to be making our first contribution to the Mirror Project - a wing mirror shot / yet more pin-ups / online wedding lists are now commonplace, as are picture galleries of past ceremonies, but this just strikes us as extremely over the top / found in the depths of our links file, with no accompanying documentation: e-com.con.com - it's looks like a pseudo-hacked corporate site. Was this for a movie tie-in? We're baffled. Why did we even clip it in the first place?

The earth as art via raccoon / extraordinary web design at Frosch-Studio. If one was a potential client, wouldn't a hugely detailed and lavish flash promotional site make you nervous? Doesn't it imply that the studio doesn't have much to do except play with their website? / end laundry basket confusion (and save a bunch on handmade Danish quality socks - is there any other kind?) with 10 socks, via diminished responsibility.

The Bat Guano galleries of nuclear weapons testing / vaguely related, a review of 24 at Sight and Sound. We're backed up with video tapes here, a month or so behind the UK, let alone the US, so we can't read it just yet / overmorgen, a highly worthwhile weblog / Colombia-based Jorge Retrepo's excellent wonksite is worth visiting for its black and white photos of cars and trains / Pastense, commercial quality 1950s retro furnishings. We'd prefer the real thing, though, as this stuff smacks too much of sticky-floored fast food joints and inappropriately dressed waitresses / Pierre di Scullio's Qui Resiste catalogues the author's various hand-printed publications, as well as fonts and links / more fonts at the beautiful fountain.

The world of Raymond Scott, (unwitting) composer of madcap cartoon melodies and pioneer of electronic music (with his own invention, the Electronium). The site contains sounds too. He also worked with a young Robert Moog (more on Moog: I, II, III). Contemporary musical instruments rarely have personalities - in fact, they spend most of their time imitating old musical instruments (like this Flextone amplifier, or this huge collection of digital drum machine resources). One could argue that people who take the time to build their own instruments (like the awesome New Brutalism) have an edge on those who don't, those for whom a guitar, keyboard or drum machine is just another tool, and not a thing with character.

Historic sites on the web. An old online gallery of the work of Julius Shulman / old collection of flash experiments at surface.yugop - not a lot has happened here for a while / also old: jjg.net's collection of weblog links - the state of the online world in October 2000 / missing in action: List Magazine.
