👾The Great Link Invasion V2👾
Time for another link attack!
Hello friends! How are you doing this fine Monday?
I’m down with a pretty bad cold as I write this - so I thought today would be a perfect opportunity for another LINK INVASION.
My brain is running rather slowly today. I think it needs more WD4D.
Basically - instead of our typical format - the entire newsletter this week will be nothing but The Land of Random section - and maybe a few TikToks.
This was a sad week for the internet - as the servers for HALO 3 finally went silent. The end of an era.
I don’t have an Xbox 360 - but I definitely would have hopped on for a few matches if I could.
I wonder if people will feel the same way about Fortnite in a decade or so?
It will be interesting to find out . . .
I managed to sit down and watch the latest Matrix movie. I REALLY wanted to like the movie - but it feels like a well funded fan flick to me. 😭 There were a few scenes that I liked - but overall it felt too introspective.
What did you think of it? Let me know what you think!
Well, let’s dive on in.
Ever wanted to create a link that can only open a limited number of times? With Mitiggate you can share a link a predefined number of times. Could be really fun for some kind of online treasure hunt.
Generate Random Recipes
So - you don’t know what to cook - but you want to try something interesting and new. With the Vegenerator you can generate random recipes using this fun slot machine.
Play IPFS in Webamp
This mashup of decentralized blockchain files and Winamps is wild. Plug in a audio file from IPFS and click play!
Typing can be such a bother, especially when you’re on the go! Use Popcorn to create quick little videos that you can share anywhere.
Secret Rick Roll
Create a Rick Roll that looks nothing like a Rick Roll. Very tricky! You an even display a custom message too.
Experiencing the Web
This meta presentation of the modern internet experience is jarring. Most content websites are crazy!
Now I need to find Boba Fett lofi . . .
DC’s Lost AM Radio Station
This bizarre radio station (1650 AM) is still broadcasting road closures from 2013. Very Creepy. Remember those radio stations in Fallout?
Need Some Virtual Bonsai Trees?
Have you ever sat at your desk coding - and thought to yourself - what if I could generate a bonsai tree in my terminal? Well, you’re in luck!
Put Spotify in a Ipod
You can be both modern AND retro. Why not?
- TIKTOK BREAK -
Mad respect for these kids
He did the right thing.
The Halo 3 servers going down. 😭
This is why I’m never going camping without a Strap
This is a very brave adventure! Still in progress.
I have no words to describe this. Woah.
I want to see the great Pixar map that connects all these.
- TIKTOK BREAK OVER -
Chill City Builder
It’s Townscaper, but bigger + with quests. Dorfromantik is a fun little city builder that is perfect for relaxing gameplay.
Shazam Your Computer
Don’t get me wrong - I LOVE Youtube mixes of lofi, nightcore, and other music. However - it can be very difficult to hunt down the actual music in the mix without pulling out your phone and asking what the song is. Here’s the Shazam chrome extension!
Dark Web Justice League
An interesting look at how justice is meted out on dark web forums.
Remember Project Zomboid? I forgot this was still going! It’s like Dayz but wayyyyy more hardcore and oldschool.
Road Trip shot on Hi8
All footage should be shot on these old school camcorders. Ultimate aestheticc
Pinball Coffee Table
I want a coffee table like this. Functional AND fun.
That’s all for this week friends! Next week we’ll be back to our typical format. Hope you enjoyed this Link Invasion! :)
