Round and round and round

History of film, 100 years in a chart / Remember who you are, James Ward takes the considerable time and effort to attend an all-day long David Icke marathon at Wembley Arena, just so you don’t have to. Also by Ward, what the computer-owning, tweeting popluation sees when it looks up / RIP Lebbeus Woods, Geoff Manaugh pays homage to the charismatic and visionary theorist who died last month / vaguely related, Alexander versus Eisenman, an architectural debate.

Design, art and creativity at Construct of the Mind. We especially like their collection of contemporary landscape photographers, Take a Look / Spectrascopic, a tumblr / Chase Cars, are ‘slot cars with character’ with enhanced suspension and body lean. Perfect for old-school car chases. Part of the presumably huge slot car modifying subculture, such as this site’s attempts to map the 2012 F1 circuits: ‘Our interpretation of the Albert Park circuit requires floor space of at least thirty feet by sixteen feet’.

KGF Classic Cars takes beautifully detailed photographs of its stock, which makes for a fine collection of flickr sets. Check out this Mercedes-Benz 500 SEC, a well-loved Citroen CX20, an incredibly original Trabant 601S, and a Barkas B-1000 Minibus.
