kim asendorf/pixel shifting


but does it float
I strongly, strongly recommend that you head over to But Does It Float and check these images out, and if you click the images there, you’ll be taken to Kim Asendorf’s flickr page. I saw this on my friend Catherine’s feed and was blown away. The images remind me a lot of the album covers for the band Growing, as well as album covers for Autechre. So awesome (in the traditional sense of the word)! I tried to look up pixel shifting to try and understood how this was acheived, but I’m still clueless. Does anyone know?

Some fantastic gifs and pics from the Musee Mecanique in San Francisco. I love that place. The rest of Morbid Anatomy is great too! Be sure to see the full site.

extinct animals

rare photographs of extinct animals

I love this kind of thing. The question of extinction, particularly human-caused extinction, and the extent to which we should stride to prevent it, is very interesting to me. How much do we miss the Tasmanian Tiger?

hitchhiker’s gifs


from analog medium

I found this blog in my bookmarks folder, and don’t recall the exact reasons for bookmarking it. However, given that they talk about NES art, cult movies, game genie cheat codes, and hip-hop, I am guessing that I bookmarked it for those reasons. Check out the full site.

muni graffiti

Like yesterday’s post, this example of graffiti is way old. But then, it’s also way awesome. I’d much rather ride a bus covered in graffiti than a bus full of trash, although the two often go hand in hand.

A MAN AGAINST INSANITY by Paul de Kruif.
The story of a doctor who conquered his own insanity and now shows others the way back, by the author of Microbe Hunters.
"An old master Paul de Kruif surely is. His latest book has pace, it has style, it has a sharply drawn hero, and, most important, it tells one of the great stories of our times." -Washington Post and Times Herald.

I found that in the back of a copy of Nova Express by William S. Burroughs.

My name is Alex and I live in LA the Bay Area.
