The Digital Dozen to peruse for your afternoon/evening/morning/whenever, time zones be damned, viewing pleasure.

Pop on the kettle, settle into the couch/sneakily browse at work and enjoy!

  • Adorably animated “may your coffee be…” video. I love these little cups!
  • Illustrator Otis Frampton has created this wonderfully nerdy ABC series of prints. I’d hang ’em up if I had childerbeasts. I’m especially fond of:
  • I’m sure there’s many of us who have wanted to have the power to change how we look. This short (about 7 mins) is an interesting look about what that could mean. Financed & filmed in Australia.
  • Australia has a number of detention centres for illegal immigrants (let’s use that term loosely, as most of them are refugees/asylum seekers). This is a powerful account of what it means to work inside one of those facilities.
  • Coolest door ever? COOLEST DOOR EVER.
  • These rugs are made of wood! They’re wild. They’re tesselated and crumple up and all. Amazing.
  • If you’re on Facebook, you’ll have seen the recent ‘look back’ videos that have been available for users. A South African comedy duo decided to create a parody one for Breaking Bad‘s Walter White and it’s quite good. (Someone did one for Darth Vader, too!)
  • I am enamoured with this wonderful Star Wars take on the Bayeux Tapestery – the Coruscant Tapestry. SO NERDY. Yesss.
  • Last time I posted I shared some mappy goodness. I have some more this week. First up is this visualization of the USA states, but with names switched so the populations are relative to state sizes. It’ll bust your mind all up.
  • Next is a layover of Google autocompletes onto US states. I kind want to do this for Canada & Australia now 😀
  • Have you ever wanted to watch an Olympic figure skater do a Big Lebowski-themed routine? You’re in luck! Thanks for making stuff happen, Jimmy Fallon.
  • Speaking of wonderful women showcasing their talents physically, this artist uses her body to create beautifully soft yet geometric pieces of art. I encourage you to watch the video.
