Welcommmmmmeeee to a special edition of The Land of Random this week.
Buckle your seat belts and turn on the Vaporwave, cuz we’re in for a wild ride!
Today I’m eschewing the typical format for a link barrage.
Links on links on links.
Here’s a sample from my new website that I’ve been working on. It’s truly aestheticc and WILD just like this newsletter, haha.
Make sure you visit it on mobile AND desktop - cuz it’s absolutely CRAZY on both.
Hard to believe it, but my son turned a month old last week. My! How time flies, doesn’t it?
It’s simply amazing to watch babies just look around and process the world. For example, my son has been staring at me solidly the last few minutes now. No tears, no fussing. Just cute staring. 🥰🥰
Well, let’s dive on in shall we?
👾 THE LAND OF RANDOM INVASION
Floating Plastic Molecules!
Apparently there’s plastic floating everywhere in the air. 😮 This is probably the most striking argument for using less plastic that I’ve ever read haha. This neat but terrifying website has some really cool interactive features.
The Crowd Sourced Newspaper
At the moment it’s a bit empty, butttt this interesting little social experiment website has a lot of potential! It’s essentially a daily newspaper you can submit articles to. Heck submit an article yourself if you have time!
The Magnetic Kids Couch
Tired of your borrring couch? wish the kids didn’t use your blankets for their forts? Well, with this couch - they can build whatever they want. Forts, castles, and more! I want two.
Want to try a different OS other than Windows/Linux? Kolibri looks pretty interesting . . . and worth at least a bootup! At the very least, it’d be fun to install it on an old laptop and give it to a friend. Hahaha.
This is a physical manifestation of a social network. Send in your postcards to the address to be featured on the site! So cool.
Build Your Own 4Chan
Oh yes - now you can build your own version of one of the most notorious websites on the internet - with hopefully a lot more moderation and more friendly topic guidance.😆
Terms and Conditions Game
As the average person becomes more and more aware of internet privacy, terms and conditions get more and more crazy . . . see if you can beat this game.
Maps of the Internet
This is one of the coolest projects that i’ve seen. It’s an old-school atlas-style map of the entire internet. You gotta check out this website! It’s absolutely wild how big Google and Youtube are . . .
Create Line Pictues
This really neat site will let you upload pictures to generate awesome abastract style line art. If you’re looking for a new profile pic . . . make sure you start here!
This game looks SO COOL. It’s like the aesthetic of Metro Exodus mashed up with the Co-op abilities of Dying Light. Check out this gameplay!
Tiny Home with Movie Loft
I feel like I would get claustrophobic in the Movie loft, but this is an epic tiny home build. I kinda want one haha.
Host a Blog in Google Drive
Want a blog, but don’t want to pay oodles of money for Wordpress? Host your blog right in Google Drive. That’s right! Check it out.
Cartoonize your favorite picture or short video with this really interesting site! I want to cartoonize entire scenes from movies after watching this.
This wild app surfaces every single tweet from Twitter in real time as emojis. It’s kinda overstimulating after a few seconds - but cool!
Self Hosted Analytics
Host your own website analytics with this open source tool. Very cool!
Movo Webmic HD Pro
Ever wanted a Mic, webcam, and ring light in one? This kickstarter will start shipping out this year! I gotta say - I kinda want one. 😂 I’m going to wait for some reviews to roll in!
🎶TikToks You Can’t Miss
Well, I know what we’re making for dinner next week!
Haha, I’d be mad - and laughing at this.
Let me dance with the dinosaur
Speaking of unsettling, what horror is this?
Don’t let the Cat get you . . .
I have so much respect for this digging project
That’s all for this issue of The Land of Random! See you next time. :) If you wanna chat, feel free to join the telegram group!
You fell for it haha
