Random Linkage

Intuitive Sewing Machine – It’s pretty but I’m quite attached to my 100+/- year old machine. And I don’t know how “intuitive” it would be for me since I’m used to either a treadle or a foot pedal. I never had any of the beginner problems the woman in the video talked about.

Scrap Quilt – I like this. I need to make a scrap quilt to use up all these scraps I’ve been collecting over the years but I keep getting ideas for perfectly planned quilts that require specific colors of fabric.

The Phantasmagorical FourThe Fantastic Four in the style of H.P. Lovecraft.

Elephantine Talent – Indeed!

The importance of math – Hah!

Bandwith breakthrough – Or “The Importance of Math II”. The big question (or at least my big question) is, will this ever make it to the real world? (via)

7 Worst Coca-Cola Flavors – I have tried two of these, the Coca-Cola Blak, which was not bad but not great, and of course, “New Coke”, about which, the less said the better. None of the others sound particularly horrible and I would actually really like to try the Orange Coke.

Roller Coaster Stair – Nifty!

Guiltless Excuses – It’s a smartphone app. (Insert curmudgeonly “what’s the world coming to” rant here)

Crack Shot – How to win at a laser shooting gallery [edited for clarity]

Vintage Alphabets – Examples: An Alphabet of Flower Symbolism, Alphabet of Women of the Future, Computer Names in Fiction

Pin-up Cats – Cute but possibly, slightly NSFW.

Pixel People Portrait

Timepieces – I probably shouldn’t admit that I remember watching the guy in the first picture on TV when I was a little kid. I love the camera clocks and the steampunk clock.

Lego Inferno – Dante’s Inferno in Legos.

Oh my! Can you believe the singer in this video is Brent Spiner? Really.

    The key to winning decent prizes at arcade games in general is to accumulate as many small, easy-to-win prizes as possible, and then trade up for the valuable prizes. Trying directly for the big prizes is a bad idea because they’re too hard to win.

    That Brent Spiner video is full of win. Very Ink Spots, with the spoken part in the middle.

    I don’t know if I would have known immediately it was him if I only heard it (and hadn’t been told the singer) but his singing voice does have similar qualities to his speaking voice.
