Quirky follies and spooky geology

The Obelisk aka Conolly’s Folly, which still exists / Wendy Carlos demonstrates her Moog Synthesizer in 1970. A pretty comprehensive explanation of synthesis for the layperson / beautiful ceramic urns by artist John Booth / ambient soundscapes and new electronica at the Rural Colours label / farewell to Robert Opron, one of the greatest car designers. Who knows what he would have come up with had his career been peaking now, instead of back in the 70s. The Simca Fulgur, his 1958 projection of the world of 2000. Related, ‘City drivers ‘should think twice’ before buying SUVs‘: ‘Annual emissions from SUVs rose to more than 700 megatonnes of CO2, and if SUV drivers were a country, they would be the seventh in the world for carbon emissions’ / the legends and science of bottomless pits. Enjoyed this 1973 diversion to Lake Dulyn in Snowdonia. At the Spooky Geology site (via MeFi) / maps by Mike Hall / End of the Road Guitars, the ultimate in distressed designs (via MusicRadar) / a distressed house / the unexpected pain of letting machines do our remembering: I Called Off My Wedding. The Internet Will Never Forget (via MeFi). Turns out that curating your memories is work / the road to Mirrorworld, the virtual inverse of our own realm. Perhaps we could put all the memories there instead / see also the Internet K-Hole (via MeFi and this accumulation of digital things (via MeFi Projects) / IN MICE.
