I've recently gotten into the show Top Gear. I love it, especially Richard Hammond, who is just adorable on a stick.
When I spotted this clever coat rack for petrol-heads, I thought of them and sent them a little "hullo" email with the URL. I figure it would be good for a laugh.
I love the steampunk aesthetic.
I would love this steampunk keyboard. It's so beautiful.
I've found an online version of Ricochet Robot. Kind of. It's got the same principles, but with a lot more bits to make it "flasher" for play online. It's called Chicken and Egg.
Share and enjoy!
I need to see Blackpool and place it on my list of DVDs I need to acquire. There's very little chance that Mike will like it, but I fell for it-is-a-musical convention.
And yes, I am seeing it thanks to the David Tennant connection. I'm such a shameless fangirl.
I love Mike Mignola. Check out his latest creation, The Amazing Screw-on Head. Hilariously funny with Paul Giamatti providing his vocal talent to the main character, David Hyde Pierce as the main villan, and quite a cast of interesting and quirky characters.
And for those of us without TV, a method of watching it via streaming video! Woo hoo!
I love handcrafted and unusual items. There's something about buying jewelry from the artist or visually or intellectually clever items from smaller outlets, especially web-based ones. Thanks to Neil Gaiman, I've discovered Fabulist. Fantastic stuff!
After receiving my iPod, a nano, from my father late last year (he got it as a thank-you gift for attending a training/technical seminar in New York City), I've been using it frequently to get Podcasts and my Audible subscriptions.
Today, I discovered ACAPPELLA U, a Podcast dedicated to college a cappella. Squee! Check it out because it is pretty rockin'.
Famous celebrities answer that question, in a commercial for BBC Channel 4.
Can I say that I absolutely love Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall? I wish his books and things were available in the US.
The other day, I watched an episode of Iron Chef where the challenger was the very young owner of a yatai, a type of outdoor cooking stand, a bit more fancy than the typical hot dog stand. The episode was Pumpkin battle and it was Italian vs. Italian.
Anyway, his yatai was named Nigiro. I took a quick search and discovered that the yatai (kept on the grounds of a shrine) was no longer around. Instead, there is a full-service cafe called Cafe Nigiro, serving Californian cuisine.
Just another place that I should stop in when I visit Japan. Someday.
An article in the Guardian on a newly discovered Paris Underground ampitheater/restaurant is simply amazing. It makes me wonder what other things are hidden underneath our city sidewalks.
