- Francis and the Lights
your new favorite band. these guys are awesome. and they have most of their records as free downloads. Check out their version of "Can't Tell Me Nothing", a Kanye West cover. so good! [via Chances with Wolves]
- Mirror, Mirror on the Wall – Errol Morris Blog – NYTimes.com
absolutely stunning set of pictures of GW Bush chosen by three news photographers. These images are iconic. Forget the negatives and the positives of his administration, and just let these images wash over.
- The Cosmic Machine – EventBox
very interesting all-in-one social networking app. currently connects to twitter, facebook, google reader, flickr, reddit and can take in any rss feed. right off the bat, as a twitter client it lacks multi-column view. But for a beta app, this thing is promising. But for my money, I don't like the email-app paradigm where it's all about unread/read items. makes me feel like my job in life is to mark things as "read". viewing twitter/flickr/facebook etc.. is better enjoyed as a passive experience. marking things as "read" is annoying to me.
- My WordPress Cheat Sheet
a really nice list of wordpress code snippets. a nice reference, but also helps de-abstract how WordPress operates. relatedly, I wonder how long it will be before Automattic builds something like this directly in to WP.
- Meet Teahupoo: Tim McKenna | Surfer Magazine
a sweet audio-guided slideshow of surf photos taken by Tim McKenna at Teahupoo in Tahiti. Some really beautiful imagery here. and his sense of humor is appreciated wrt the first slide.
