Fun and Games December

1.Here’s an interesting little time filler.

.i. Go to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page and click on Random Article…this is your Band Name

.ii. Go to https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Main_Page and click on Random Page…choose a quote and select the last 3 to 5 words of the quote…..this is the Album Name

.iii. Got to https://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/ and click on the 7th image….this is your album art.

Here’s a random one I created:

Now I just need to think up good educational uses!

2. Three thoughts for this next one:

.i. Set headphone volume to low before playing. Alternatively, you could remove fragile items within arms reach, so you don’t break anything when you react to the unusual sounds.

.ii. The audio does not come with English subtitles.

.iii. “So long, and thanks for all the fish”

Art/Design, Music, Comparisons!

1. Art/Design – The Best of the visual Web, sifted, sorted and summarized. Also, punny title for added bonus.

3. Finally! A way to definitively compare apples and oranges. What a time to be alive.

This website lends itself to the comparison of opposites, but something to remember is, the opposite of “dog” is not “cat”. I don’t know who first suggested this but it’s clearly incorrect. On the scale of all the myriad things existing (or not existing for that matter) in the universe through all time, these are practically identical not opposites. I would suggest that the only true opposite of dog would be either “no dog” or perhaps “negative dog”. As in, some sort of a vacuum in space-time that would eliminate all the matter required to make one dog, leaving the universe even again. Having said that, I did compare cat and dog.
