Monday morning randomness. Pretty pixels at Quickhoney / an article from last year all about Halloween - it's been loitering in our links file for twelve months / the unofficial otter pops page / the Ericofon, a true design classic / Droplift, reverse shoplifting: sneak your music CDs into shops for unsuspecting consumers to stumble on.

Herzog & de Meuron's Laban Centre in Deptford, South London, has won this year's Stirling Prize for architecture. It's a worthy winner, if a little predictable. See our gallery here / Alex Marshall, author of 'How Cities Work' - looks interesting / how revolutions work: the Guillotine Headquarters / a secret smile, a weblog with beautiful photos (e.g. a storm in Alberta). One of the links is to daydream nation, which is angry and a little bit rude and we're not sure if it's earned the right to use that name...

The Annals of Improbable Research detail their highly entertaining findings, including sending weird things by mail, as well as being home to the celebrated Ig Nobel Prizes / all about Ralph H.Bauer, the inventor of the video game (which must have seemed pretty improbable at the time), as well as many more video game history resources, including the story of early work at Sanders Associates and the epitome of wood-look technology, the VideoSport Mk2 / old calculating machines / old calculator gallery at ti59.com.

Textz presents a whole hosts of classic socio-cultural texts for your perusal / French Genre painting, the work of Watteau, Chardin and Fragonard at the National Gallery of Art in Washington / Mappa Mundi Magazine, more future world speculation and past times re-evaluation, via the Freegorifero weblog. See also terranova, which tackles the brave new world of technology.

Why we'll see more ugly cars, via j-walk / hermitary, a website about hermits / follow the latest events in the At Home with Hitler saga (and all about the copyright issue). Bowblog also points us to Bryan Appleyard's coruscating review in the New Statesmen of Professor Susan Greenfield’s book Tomorrow’s People (named, presumably, for the fondly remembered but equally awful 1970s sci-fi show, The Tomorrow People, and also used by Martin Raymond for his Tomorrow People: Future Consumers and How to Read them Today, which is probably a whole lot more interesting).

Cheshire Dave tackles the Teen-targeted Bible magazine in his monthly judging a book by its cover feature. Related: 'extreme' teen bibles / pretty colours / photos of decaying German industry at dubtown. Related, shedworks, naked women photographed in decaying German industry / timelines, a web collection at black belt jones / a gallery of Baghdad’s burgeoning book market.

This project, the optimistically titled Ten years of my life, kicked off last Friday. Respect. Naturally, discussions flagged up other interesting photo sites, including centricle and this farm photolog / nails, at art for housewives (goes with 'Nailed') / the Museum of Vision Science and Optometry in Waterloo, Ontario, via Giornale Nuovo. Related: Sunglasses, 1952, a Consumer Report: 'We test 38 brands -- and find 23 of them Not Acceptable.' (via Penny Dreadful).

An epic piece of wartime propoganda, via boynton: Can a Warden be a Good Wife? / textism has re-designed / jetpack is a good design site / icon provides this intriguing map of their movement around Lausanne since May 1st. In things 17 (coming soon, coming soon), Doug Spencer muses on the Siutationist International, Paris, maps and modernity - there are many cross-overs with this. Related: the secret elephant, a cartographical bestiary (via haddock) part of the British Library's exhibit, the Secret Life of Maps.

New writing at Upside Clone, via Upside Clown (their background makes my eyes wobble) / more new writing at Multistorey / freeway blogging (or just a new way of describing home made signs…?), via hosenpants / Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter / a local history site for Newark / the bondage jukebox, kinks in popular song / industrial designer extraordinaire, Brooks Stevens.
