I love how nothing is sacred tothese guys.  I’m waiting for them to blend the BlendTec blender one of these days…

WORLDMAPPER: The world as you’ve never seen it before

Suffice it to say I love maps.  Current maps, antique maps, topographical maps, dymaxion maps, fantasy maps, non-spatial maps… yeah… I like maps… they almost rival my obsession with clockwork.

So I about died of happiness when I found this site:

They’ve got maps for almost EVERYTHING you could think of:

Transportation                     Food                                       Manufacturering
Resources                               Fuel                                        Income
Education                               Health                                    Disease
Disaster                                   Destruction                          Pollution
Communication                   Exploitation                        Cause of Death
Age of Death                          Religion                                 Language

… to list a few.

Here’s one I find interesting:

Olympic Pictograms Through the Ages


This video by “MysteryGuitarMan” won’t make sense til you reach the 00:40 mark.  Once you reach 1:10, it’s no longer required viewing/listening, but the guy is amusing. 😛

Scroll Clock

Buggerit.  Why do I keep finding silly things like this so mesemerizing?!


You might remember OK Go from this informal video they made for their song “Here It Goes Again” for fun.


Since then, they’ve been at it again, and they do not disappoint:

They get uber cookie points from me for being band geeks… and using GHILLIE SUITS in that vid.

And apparently, it wasn’t enough for them because they did another version featuring their screwball antics with a Rube Goldberg machine they designed.

The Voca People

They claim to hail from the planet “Voca” where all communication is musical.  Somehow they crash landed into a Tel Aviv music studio and are here to learn Earth’s musical “language.”

Or at least, that’s about as much as I was able to piece together.  In any case, they’re fantastic fun. 🙂
