Apparently they’re service dogs being trained to sit through a movie without talking.

Click on the image, but be forewarned: You’re going to be busy for a while.

Each green dot represents at least one live-streaming radio station to listen to. Features allow roaming by type, location, station saving, and it’s downloadable as an app for Android mobile devices, PC or Mac, or just bookmark it on your browser. I’ve had no trouble listening on Firefox.

Studio Puckey is an Amsterdam based interactive design studio founded in 2016 by Jonathan Puckey. We love the internet.”

Kurt Zimmerman visits schools with his droids to inspire young minds, and does hospital visits to cheer up young patients. Artoo Deco is capable of movement under radio control, and with an in-built sound-system that makes cool, droidish noises.

Let’s Pretend it’s Mardi Gras

Tuesday, 16 February 2021

Mardi Gras has been ruined for the 2nd year in a row. Thank God USA Today has a list of the 10 Best Ways to Celebrate Mardi Gras at Home.

1. Decorate in green, gold and purple.
Dare to be ugly.

2. Have a seafood boil.
Eew.

3. Eat a king cake.
Okay.

4. Mix a Mardi Gras martini.
Okay with that also. Oop, made a mistake. Let’s try another one.
Whoopsie. Did it again. Let’s make three and see which one is best. Then we’ll make that one.
Uh-oh…

5. Make a shoebox float.
Then look at it.

6. Learn some Cajun French.
Gitcha gitcha gris-gris gumbo yaya. Done.

7. Snack on some MoonPies.
Got it.

8. See some house floats.
Mardi Gras without the flashers, but a good excuse to keep your Christmas lights up.

9. Dress up your dog.
No. It embarrasses you and annoys the dog.

10. Take a virtual tour of Mardi Gras World.
It’s kinda cool in a 2nd grade field trip kinda way, but it’s virtual so it’s more like shopping for mattress covers online.

Enough of that nonsense. Let’s do this instead.

 

Legible Graffiti

Monday, 15 February 2021

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Mathieu Tremblin lives and works in Rennes and Arles, France, finds graffiti and enhances them for legibility (and sometimes the taggers return).

“As if tagging the city was about freedom, and drawing decorative letters about control, I wanted to find a project to turn “ugly tags” into something “beautiful”, but preserve the subversive part of language distortion.”

I find it interesting that the vandalism in France is indistinguishable from that in the US, and I wonder why.
