Frrrrriday Rrrrroundup! #42

toes with faces drawn on them & a big toe with shades

An end-of-weekly roundup collecting fffffive of the fffffoxiest things I fffffind stumbling around the web. More about the genesis here. Every dang Friday Round-Up here, you procrastinating slacker!

Ambient music + a live feed of the LAPD radio stream, an eerily perfect soundtrack for the postmodern age. [Facebook-ed, via Daniel Shriver]

A charming and very, very smart trailer for a book teaching gaming re-framing for geeks. Authors, take note! [Tumbled, via Adam Lisagor]

I nearly jumped out of my seat with a “Hallelujah!” at this screed against poxy, bullsh*t-authority “inspirational” weblogs. [Google Reader-ed]

Like the commenter says, “This is unquestionably the greatest example of how to make raw data sexy that I’ve ever seen.” [YouTube-d, via VSL]

  1. Regarding ‘inspirational’ weblogs — …Blogger Schmutzie is so right! If every post from an ‘inspirational’ blogger is always rainbows, sunshine, and how to make it all wonderful — it does get old, predictable, and out of touch with the reality of everyday life.

    I can only imagine that Schmutzie would appreciate (or appreciates if she is a follower) ‘Communicatrix’ because it sheds light on both sides of the coin. ‘Communicatrix’ is inspiring, not because it sets out to be, but because of the connectedness we feel to you, Colleen. That only comes because you have been so willing to courageously share the good, the bad and the ugly.
