But for those of you who aren’t, or for when you get back:

BASILISK | AN ONLINE JOURNAL OF FILM, ARCHITECTURE, PHILOSOPHY, LITERATURE, MUSIC, AND PERCEPTION
I’m surprised I’ve never seen this before. Basilisk doesn’t show up in a search of Technoccult, so I’m hoping this is new to a lot of you, as well. The front page seems to be broken, so after a quick ‘view source’, here are the links to Issue One, Issue Two, and Issue Three, which they say is almost done. Having quickly looked over what they have so far, I’m certainly looking forward to reading through their site.

The fantastic and surreal paintings of Peter Gric
This is a site I like to visit and I thought I’d share it with you. In the Other Projects section (it’s inside a flash movie, or I’d post a direct link), Gric was commissioned to paint three large machines that are used in textile mills. They came out looking like eerie pieces of alien technology. I’d love to have been able to customize some of the machinery I used to work on.

SIMIAN is the interactive Flash narrative of designer, Ross Mawdsley. Parts 2 through 6 are online and available for download as well. Loosely inspired by The Planet of the Apes, the site requires a bit of patience on the part of the user, as some exploration and experimentation may be involved in navigating between sections. It’s a nice place to spend an hour on a rainy day.

I’d like to thank Klint again for asking me to fill in while he was away at Burning Man. I hope you’ve all found something interesting within these posts. I’m going away to visit relatives out of state over the weekend, so this is probably it for me here unless my wife lets me bring my laptop along ;)

Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend, everyone.

  • well, looks like we’re not going anywhere, which suits me just fine… ;)

    You people don’t post much in the comments around here, do ya?

  • We’re all too self-important to comment on the posts of others. Fortunately, I don’t post on the main page, so I’m safe from their unspoken scorn and secret violence.

    They’re watching me…

  • Oh.

    I was hoping that maybe the Christian Rapture had happened and I was left behind :)

  • No, I’m afraid that you’ve been put at the top of the Good List. You’ll be quite aware when the Christian Rapture comes, lemme tell you right now.

    No amount of sinning can get YOU off the list, sauceruney.

  • Your site is excellent
