The Wind Caravan website supported a series of kinetic sculptures by Susumu Shingu. More kinetic/noise art installations: the treeHarps, windribbons and whistlers. Intriguing stuff: listen (aiff). Many more fascinating projects and sounds at Terraplane Chorography 3, which documents three decades of sound installations / the RAF's Saxa Vord radar station on Unst in the Shetland Isles is to close. It's pretty bleak up there. Unst is the 'most northerly populated island in the British Isles', home of the Muckle Flugga lighthouse, designed and built by Thomas and David Stevenson, the former being the father of Robert Louis.

This leads us on to Chris Mullen's The Visual Telling of Stories, a 'database dedicated to the study of narrative in visual form.' The site is a bit slow, but it is an incredible resource. For example, check the gallery of Aesop's Fables, or illustrations from the Ladybird books, the amazing law and order scrapbooks, representations of pain, Brian Love's The Poppy Day, strips from pulp magazines ('I wish I had socked him! I should have busted his jaw!'), an intriguing collection of Victorian photographic albums and more and more and more.

k-punk is a south London-based weblog about politics and music, and the way one tends to mediate the other. No surprises for guessing the chief topic of conversation at the moment, but the points made are intelligently discussed. Linked, The Kubrick Site. The site also turned us on to some other London-based theoretical/musing weblogs, including Charlotte Street (run by Mark Kaplan, who also oversees the Critical Dictionary) and Abstract Dynamics. Via Charlotte Street, the (unfinished) Encyclopedia of the Marvelous, the Monstrous, and the Grotesque.

Other, more materialist, stuff. The BenzWorld galleries. No car gets pimped more than the Mercedes-Benz. Al's Car Page has articles on German, English and Asian limousines. Al has a big collection of car brochures too. We also share his passion for unusual station wagon conversions / stencils from the stencil library / Amiga art flickr set (via Caterina).

We can't wait until the likes of Topozone are fully integrated into Google Earth. Related, the Google Weblog and Hot or Not + Google Maps. See where 'hot' people live (via me-fi). The horror of metadata / 40 under 40, new architects step into the media glare / PanduCermat.org.my is a Malaysian government initiative to get law-abiding citizens to send in cellphone pictures of drivers doing illegal/silly things (via autoblog).

The Observer launches a technology magazine this Sunday (24th July), takings its complement of glossy supplements to four, the others being food, music and sport. They've been broadly influential across all swathes of that which we call culture, representing the apex of a particular kind of middle class smorgasbord of lifestyle and consumption, reducing everything to a series of well-marketed tick-boxes, be it an 'edgy' new CD, promising young sportswoman, or 'undiscovered' soft cheese. They're a bit like amazon's recommendations system, except in print and slightly more over-bearing.

On Tottenham Court Road, yesterday. Stockwell today, etc. etc. And so it goes on. Today's papers. The suspects. Bomb-related cliche-watch: 'X bears all the hallmarks of Y'. Have a safe weekend.
