Links for 2.2.10: 23 Tips for Better Abs

by Josh Kimball

*Books: Check out this insane (and what, as related Mr. Dick, cannot be called that?) collection of Philip K. Dick book covers. Ask me some time about the day I, as a teen, serendipitously pulled “VALIS” off the shelf at my neighborhood library and HAD MY MIND BLOWN. [mefi]

*Music: The Aeolius is a resonating architectural structure that uses the power of the elements to make noise. If you listen very, very closely, you can hear some vague, rhythmic thrumming. And probably your own aorta. [notcot]

*Covers: Listen to indie rockers cover other indie rockers – The Arcade Fire does “Maps,” The Kooks cover MGMT. What I find funny about the flavorwire page is how it (and it seems to become something of a convention) scrapes YouTube for semi-legal music. (A practice I was noodling on way back when this blog started.)

*Film: Johnny Depp is set to direct a Keith Richards documentary. In my opinion, the artistic direction of this film should be as follows: Two weathered men sit looking grimy; they drink, smoke and mumble unintelligibly until the single, flickering bulb that lights the room fizzes out and darkness envelops everything. Then you hear a belch. Roll credits.

*Fashion: Underwear made out of circuit boards: Green “concept” product or cruel body hair joke perpetrated on unsuspecting blog readers?

*Shouting obscenities: Gnilley is a videogame that monitors your voice. The objective is to kill enemies by screaming at them. [waxy]

*Today’s links: F. Stay the course!
