The Final Decline and Total Collapse of the American Magazine Cover: 'You can only have your rib poked so many times, and it doesn't seem to put you in the mood to buy things.' The new issue of Sleaze magazine (formerly Sleaze Nation) has a long piece, 'Celebrity Burnout', about how the current cultural preoccupation with micro-celebrity is getting us precisely nowhere. Their cover design isn't too bad either, although rather blatantly iconoclastic. A backlash would be very welcome round about now.

A photo tour of the Park Hyatt Tokyo, which brags about its Lost in Translation assocation on their website (via LaPetiteClaudine). It seems strange to advertise the fact that your hotel was the central, defining element in a film about ennui, alienation and dislocation, emotions that were just as much a result of the Park Hyatt's globalised impersonal lobby aesthetic, all tinkling lounge singers, muted conversation and shiny surfaces, as by the soporific effects of jetlag.

Miniature Golfer is your online guide to this reduced-size version of a pretty daft sport. Handily, there are galleries of the UK's best and most prestigious courses. They are gloriously banal. Related: I like John Hinde, holiday camp photographer extraordinaire (and still very much a going concern). This is just one part of Anne Ward's excellent I like website, containing old cafes, old pubs and tall towers, coupled with a beautiful layout and a quite wonderful sister site about the books of Miroslav Sasek, children's author and illustrator, creator of books like This is Cape Kennedy. Recommended.

Elsewhere. Classic game remakes / contemporary jewellery by Sarah Crawford, via art for housewives / the clipping of an aluminium orchid, part of Alan's Mojave Weblog / we're flattered that Northumbria University considers us to epitomise their definition of weblog, but it still didn't help things get into the weblog period table.

A place to re-visit - the Old Car Manual Project (via Evenings on the Lake ). It's funny how perceptions of what's classy and chic can change so drastically with the passing of time. Related, Growabrain's auto links, such as Cadillacs of the Rich and Famous / The Word Spy is great - we must visit more often (via Words of Waldman).

The history of Clarus the Dogcow (doesn't mean much to us PC-using heathens) / diary of a printmaker, a weblog / a remarkable image of the Brooklyn Army Terminal at slower (terminal history) / I didn't know that 'Louis Kahn died bankrupt and alone in a bathroom stall at Penn Station in 1973, his body not identified for three days.' / the traffic island art project (via waxy). Some beautiful imagery, far removed from the dystopic vision conjured up by J.G.Ballard's novel Concrete Island (which was also produced as a play).

Well, we're down to our final 200MB of the pocketdrive, and the new computer is on order. 250GB should be enough to stash photos and mp3s for the time being. The photolog will enter recycling mode for a bit too.
