eXTReMe Tracker
Tuesday, March 09, 2004
We're too late to link to this fascinating motorcycle trip around the ruins of Chernobyl - the bandwidth has long been exceeded. If it ever comes back, check out these devastating images of row upon row of irradiated and abandoned vehicles. Link originally found at me-fi, which links some more (working) photos and the forthcoming game S.T.A.L.K.E.R, set in the empty wastelands of a virtual model of the ill-fated town.

I don't know about you, but these first person shooter games scare the bejesus out of me. All that creeping around corridors, with flickering lighting effects and shadows concealing god knows what. The very first Doom was bad enough, but Doom III just looks terrifying. I have a hard enough time as it is with games that involve creeping around locations avoiding other 'humans', but as soon as they introduce zombies or daemons, I go to pieces.

Staying with decay. Rouillees, ruins, automotive and architectural in the south of France. See also the beautiful images at the Cimitiere des Anciennes, such as this hemmed-in Beetle. The coming together of rust and vegetation is apparently a popular on-line subject. Some more abandoned autos. The world is full of junked things. Even more.

Related. Toys cars, a great collection (in French), complete with scanned ads from the 1960s. Still related, a collection of documentation relating to the Peugeot 404 (Imagine a car being called a 404 today, the ultimate internet faux pas that would mirror an earlier myth).

Life, A User's Manual: Argos Walk, via Ashley B. A walk through an invisible city, full of activities not normally seen, yet all captured on remote video. The Georges Perec reference draws attention to Perec's prototyptical city narrative.

A scanned Apple Design book / we're sorry / the Bentley Collection of snowflake photos, via me-fi / the bad music gallery, via the unbelievably wonderful large-hearted boy, via tmn / An illustrated treatise on ammunition and ordnance, British 1880-1960. For example, Fuze, Time and Percussion, No.93, Mark 1. Part of Steve Johnson's epic Cyberheritage project.

Visit the Tasty Popsicle / black fashion covers, seemingly disproving an age-old trope about the magazine industry / the world's subway systems reduced to the same scale. From just about everywhere / the Pulitzer Foundation has a slick website, as befits an organisation that doles out some of the heftiest prizes in the arts.

Good Vibes is an antique vibrator museum, via Sachs Report / Margot Knight's photography is pretty creepy, especially Dog Shoes and the Girl's Best Friend series / Women's Magazines of the 1950s: You and Heinz.
