Copying media to a PSP

A pretty useful article from ExtremeTech on how to get different types of media onto a PSP. Includes a decent list of 3rd party tools to help out.

Fake VW vans

A new trend in Japan is modifying a Suzuki van to look like a VW van, to create a Minibasu. I thought these looked great.

Another cool Flickr viewer

Seems to be a few new examples a week of people exploiting the Flickr API. The Flickr Related Tag Browser is one of the cooler ones I've seen recently. Try typing "Egham" in here for a few photos in and around us.

Bracelets

I thought that these bracelets by Franz Schnaas were pretty cool. Kind of a medical/bicycle aesthetic.

Shots from Orlando

These shots from our Orlando Vacation ended up being mostly of the Kennedy Space Center. Not sure why. There are a few others.

Prepare to be sucked into the void...

Lab fireball 'may be black hole'. "A fireball created in a US particle accelerator has the characteristics of a black hole, a physicist has said."

Sandman portrait

Michael Zulli, a graphic artist who's done a lot of work on Neil Gaiman's Sandman comics, is documenting the process of painting his "last" Sandman picture, The Last Morpheus. It's interesting to see him start from basic sketches and move to painting on a 4 foot by 2 foot canvas.

Illyvator

I thought this elevator re-imagined as a coffe stand was pure genius.

A composition a day

Shannon is taking a photo a day. I'm writing in my journal and doing at least one small sketch in it, also on a daily basis. Both of us find it tough to keep up, and feel guilty if we're late.
I can't even imagine what Micah went through in his [graphic journal], which obviously must have demanded a lot more from his time. Lovely work, though. Like his inspiration page, too.

Old TV clocks

These are great recreations of classic UK TV channel clocks, done in Flash.

K Adorable

This was the last t-shirt I received from the K Adorable t-shirt subscription that Shannon bought for me. Now it's come to an end I'm torn between wanting to subscribe again and not wanting to flood my wardrobe with shirts from just one place.

Sketch #2

Sketch #2

I've been working on my new years resolution of keeping a daily entry in my notebook. The goal includes me doing at least one sketch a night, typically something small and simple. I've started posting some of the results of these, messed with in photoshop, to Flickr. This is one.

Voyager vs. GlobalFlyer

I'm confused. Steve Fossett just "made history", according to CNN, by being the person who "completed the first nonstop flight 'round-the-world without refueling".

When I was in Seattle in February, though, I saw a model hanging from the roof of SeaTac airport of the Voyager aircraft, which, according to Wikipedia, was "the first to fly around the world without stopping or refueling". In 1986. So which is it...?

Sir Bill

I don't know why this photo of Bill with his Knighthood looks so weird to me. I guess it's because it makes him look like a bit of a tourist.

T-shirt printing

Something else I'd definitely like to get into. Here's a blow-by-blow tutorial for how to print your own t-shirts.

Grivina

Nice work this.
