The Mad May Mixup

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!

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.

The Land of Random

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?

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.

THEY'RE OUT THERE

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!

Kolibri OS

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.

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.

I feel like I would get claustrophobic in the Movie loft, but this is an epic tiny home build. I kinda want one haha.
