July Round Up
Here’s all the online crap I’ve found interesting in July:
The Story of My Sands – A look at the codewords used over tannoy systems. I well remember a Mr Sands on Brighton Pier and Somerfield.
Heavens Above. Calculates where satellites and the ISS will appear in the sky. Apparently you can see Iridium Flares in daylight too if you know exactly where to look.
What The World Eats. Time Magazine photo study of the food consumed by different cultures around the world.
Charlotte Gainsbourg – The Songs That We sing – (listen by choosing ‘5:55 The Album’)
The 12 Master Formats of Advertism. Nice video explaining the 12 main advertising tropes.
Mike Read is backing Boris Johnson. Not the dead cockney one but the dire radio DJ. Not only is his article pure reactionist gold but the comments are hilarious too. I say Mike Read for Mayor!
Trailer for a crazy South Korean movie about dragons with rocket launchers, called D-War.
The iPhone v the Nokia E70. An interesting article (contains comedy and swearing).
