[teh glorious interweb what got stuck in my :flash: camino tabs this past week]

this summer i shall wear prisoner tshirts

:flash: T-Shirt «Close Guantánamo» — Amnesty Schweiz – the guantanamo model.

:flash: Viking and Sema Stripe – bd has made 2 new tshirts, BD Viking and BD SEMA-Stripe (the old school prisoner model), but they seriously screwed up their claim, betray yourself? erm, why? why should anyone betray (betrügen) themselves? i wonder if they meant to say: portray yourself. swinglish!

art

:flash: Banksy builds portable toilet monument on Glastonbury festival site – “The central monument in Banksy’s latest installation, a replica of the ancient monument built on the site of the forthcoming Glastonbury festival, is a portable toilet that has been sawed in half and sunk into the Somerset field.”

:flash: Tim Knowles – Tree Drawings – “Drawings produced by pens attached to the tips of tree branches, as the branches move in the wind the tree draws on to a panel or drawing board on an easel. ” [via waxy]

:flash: Brian Eno’s 77 Million Paintings – an art installation – “Conceived by Brian Eno as “visual music”, his latest artwork, 77 Million Paintings is a constantly evolving sound and imagescape which continues his exploration into light as an artist’s medium and the aesthetic possibilities of “generative software”.”

the end of the world … of warcraft?

:flash: Apocalypse WoW? – “Is the end nigh for World of Warcraft? Okay, that’s a little over-dramatic, but Wowinsider.com has a post wondering why so many people are leaving the game only months after the Burning Crusade expansion.” comments are intersting.

:flash: Why are people leaving WoW? – WOW Insider – “Why then are people leaving the game? Is it that they see it as something conquered once you reach 70? Is it that despite how much content Blizzard puts out it just never is enough? What do you think Blizzard can do to stem this downward spiral?” same as above.

:flash: Karazhan Bedtime – zomfg. hear wow addiction in action in this conversation between a boy and his parents. i guess the other guys listened in on vent (an application like teamspeak) and recorded it.

apple is doomed

:flash: Apple – Mac OS X Leopard – Features – i don’t know about you, but i have never seen a new mac os release with so few features that made me think, i must buy this – maybe maybe the file browser would make up for 1/2 a reason. weird, is apple forgetting its core business over sheer iPhone madness.

:flash: Apple’s iPhone iTunes ID set-up demand – “Apple will require iPhone customers to have an active iTunes Store account, in order to set-up their device, the company has revealed.” = weird, microsoftish/sonyish.

:flash: Why You May Not Want An iPhone – no G3, sucky battery, not sure if shareware will be allowed, touchscreen as only navigational option and new, exclusive contracts.

:flash: Who in Their Right Mind Would Run Safari on Windows? – “There’s only one problem with that scenario — Safari sucks. A lot of Mac users won’t run the browser (I’m one of them), so why would anyone run it on Windows?” who???

schmooze

:flash: Plazes – Right Plaze, Right People, Right Time – it’s been redesigned, twitterised, but sadly i am locked out. password retrival emails never make it to me /cry …

:flash: LOL Metal – lolcats w. metal bands.

:flash: Vera Rollić :: Putzjob gesucht! – swiss blogger asked to stop blogging about her job…

:flash: Bruce Lawson’s personal site – check out the goatse bunny at the bottom. [thx klav]

:flash: Ärger um neue Flickr-Filter – “Wenn Sie eine Yahoo-ID aus Singapur, Deutschland, Hongkong oder Korea verwenden, können Sie aufgrund der dortigen Geschäftsbedingungen die sichere Suche nicht abschalten.”

:flash: cencorship sucks – why the fuck you think i’m paying for this here? – “If your Yahoo! ID is based in Singapore, Germany, Hong Kong or Korea you will only be able to view safe content based on your local Terms of Service so won’t be able to turn SafeSearch off.”

:flash: Plastic That Heals Itself – “Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) have made a polymer material that can heal itself repeatedly when it cracks.”

:flash: Crocs of Shit – “I think the downfall of this country is arguably not violence on television, or what exactly high fructose corn syrup is doing to our brains, but really, what the hell people see in these shoes”

:flash: NOSJOURNAAL – Wat gebeurde er met Bush’ horloge? – did someone steal bush’s pocketwatch?

:flash: area/code – “The game itself is a pirate adventure, in which players move from island to island to buy, sell and fight for goods. ”

:flash: I Want To Bring The Nike Corporation To Its Knees – “The former professional soccer player’s crusade against the apparel titan began when he was canned from a coaching gig at St. John’s University for refusing to wear Nike’s products, as required by the school’s $3.5 million endorsement deal”

:flash: MyspaceMP3.org – Download Music from MySpace – generates the link to downloadable mp3s on myspace.

:flash: Pentagon Confirms It Sought To Build Gay Bomb – “The Ohio Air Force lab proposed that a bomb be developed that contained a chemical that would cause enemy soliders to become gay, and to have their units break down because all their soldiers became irresistably attractive to one another”

:flash: Pollen – j’accuse, this is the culprit. this is what makes me suffer each spring/summer. and watching how somehow evil these things look in high res photos i kinda understand better.

:flash: Fast Food: Ads vs. Reality – “Each item was purchased, taken home, and photographed immediately. Nothing was tampered with, run over by a car, or anything of the sort. It is an accurate representation in every case. Shiny, neon-orange, liquefied pump-cheese, and all.” a masterpiece!!!!!!1

video/online movie

:flash: Requiem for Borat – “This is a recut trailer for the movie “Borat” as a drama. Made by myself.”

:flash: Sarkozy bourré ridiculise la France au G8. Pire que Ségogo. – was sarko drunk or not?
