New Mix on SoundCloud

July 2011 Mix

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a mix (seems to be a recurring theme). Anyway here it is. I recorded it 6 weeks ago so it’s doubly lame that it’s not been online until now, and explains why it’s called July and I’m posting it in September. Doh.

Playstation ‘Dealer’ Roach Ad

I was tidying up and I came across this.

Sometime in the early 90s Sony put out this advertisement printed on perforated card. It appears to show a shady dealer offering up a Playstation controller. Upon further investigation it turns out that the size of the cardboard perforations is perfect for constructing makeshift filters for what Cannabis smokers would call ‘joints’.

What were they thinking?!?

Note that my copy of the ad is completely unripped.

Look again at that Facebook Map

I did what I suspect a lot of people did. I saw this beautiful Facebook visualisation and went “oooh”. My oooh contained just a couple of things:

  1. Isn’t that pretty
  2. Facebook is big and global

But I just read this account by Paul Butler, the intern who made the thing. And all of a sudden it took on a whole new dimension. It gets a little technical in places, but you should read it, you’ll view the whole thing as more than just a pretty picture once you have. Go on read it.

All of a sudden you realise that there isn’t a background map here. Everything you see, including the recognisable shapes of countries is created by connections between people.

And once you’ve read Paul’s piece, click and view the high-resolution version of the map and drink it up.
