Broken Camera, a tumblr / Death Drive, a photographic project by Dean Rogers (via The Defeatist). Sort of related, art by Simon Menner. Especially Boobytraps, Minefields, and the backs of some famous paintings / art by Paul Tebbott / Into the Loop, a weblog.


Mish Mash Mush, a weblog / Salted Water, a blog about interesting visual things / KEG apartment, a speculative conversion of oil tanker to camper van / Chewing Pixels, on video games and other stuff / Fixed in Japan, a sort of blend of contemporary cult obsessions: fixed gear bikes and Japanophilia / My Black Brick, homage to a Volvo / Natural nuclear reactors, power plants and landscape – A brief history of design, at dpr-barcelona (via Ethel Baraona). See also Dounreay is coming apart…


Advertisers gear up for the new world of the iPad. Thank heaven for niche publishing: As It Is To-Day, ‘All the News from the 1770s to the 1930s’, ‘A 12 page newsprint periodical collecting and collating the best of literature from travel guides, treatises, pamphlets, books, receipts and ephemera. Each looks through the lens “of to-day”, revelling in the present and present history, whether from the 18th Century or the 20th.’ Read more at Anti-Mega.


Finalists in the 2010 Skyscraper Competition / the first usage of the term ‘bail out’ was 1951 In what context? / the influential Science Fiction Movie never made, concept art from ‘Alejandro Jodorowsky’s impossible, insane, psychedelic, Jungian, mind-altering adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune.’ At SquareMans / vaguely related, Twin Peaks Twenty Years On. See also the Twin Peaks archive / more Guardian: The photograph that defined the class divide.

  1. Hi,

    Long-time listener, first-time caller!

    Seeing your recent batch of ‘Dune’ related links, thought you might like to see this – if you’ve not come across it already – a new show of new and old artwork relating to the movie, opening this week.
