have fun classifying photos

it’s very rare for me to post a link to something, but this is an exception. what a fantastic way of getting other people to categorise photos – you never know a funkypancake photo might appear there sometime. i think i’m addicted to random word association with an unknown stranger !

the funkypancake kaleidoscope

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 !

geek gardener

check out matt’s blog, geek gardener. he’s ‘learning by doing’ in the garden. it’s the snails i feel sorry for.
matt is also the funkypancake webserver landlord
so that’s two reasons to check out his site.

boobahs

have you heard of the boobahs ? i bought a DVD of them for �2 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 gets quality

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)

tesselations

my colleague has just pointed me in the direction of this excellent website.
it’s one of a small number of websites which live on the same little server as funkypancake so that makes us web-neighbours.

a similar blog

here’s an interesting thing. it’s a blog which is a bit like mine, set in the same part of london with the same obsession for signs.
marvellous.

british lawnmower experience

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.
