here are a couple of sites you might not know about, or have forgotten about, which have london related fancy photos on.
There’s The London Map
and the other one is Digitally Distributed Environments, a great 3D modelling and panarama site i’ve been visiting for ages. it’s also got some cool models of london bits for Google Earth
i got an email from the chap behind Digitally Distributed Environment who has been taking absolutely fantastic panorama photos of london landmarks.
here’s one of his pictures. click it to go to the site
the pictures on the page are interested but to be really wowed, load the quicktime panoramas and whizz in and out and up and down !
i got an email from project-euh.com informing me that funkypancake makes a good kaleidoscope on account of its large amount of pictures.
so why not take a look at the funkypancake kaleidoscope. you can select funkypancake from the drop down favourites menu.
click on kaleidoscope again once you get bored to create another varient.
nice stuff !
have you heard of the boobahs ? i bought a DVD of them for ï¿½2 last week and esther and kezia love them.
as a parent you usually have at least an idea of what is going on in a program, but the boobahs is just too random for words. it’s fantastic. as is their website. Apparently it’s educational.
i have a theory about this kind of program – the creators, producers and commissioners of this type of program are probably of the 60s generation who experimented with psychedlic drugs. they are now passing on their ‘experiences’ through the media of kids TV.
here are esther and kezia on the sofa (under a blanket) mesmerised:
xfm have added a faster, better quality streaming stream to their live stream (on a boat on a stream probably). you have to download the abacast client and it takes a whle the first time to get gong.
so now you can listen to top music and have a chuckle (particularly the 4-7pm UK time shows)
here is something nice for anyone interested in british life. lawnmowing is an essential part of the british psyche. unless you live in the middle of a town.
Visit the British Lawnmower Museum and listen to the music as you peruse the wonderous machines. The photo gallery is a little disapointing.
For real pictures you’ll have to go to the Old Lawn Mowers Club which has a mower of the month feature.
