Hard to believe that these green halls have been around for an entire year (and a Leap Year at that). After posting over 365 things to be jealous of, better digs were certainly in order. Of course, this means all RSS feeds and bookmarks will need to be updated and as much of a hassle as that can be, faith dictates you’ll make those changes. With new housing comes new paint and furnishings, so look forward to enhanced improvements and additions (such as submitting your own jealousies) to the new “i am jealous” over at the new iamjealo.us site.
365 (+1) days of being jealous. What better way to show a year of posts from this site than through a clever bit of scripting that creates a cloud of words from provided text (in this case, from many of the posts seen here). Wordle creates beautiful word clouds. What does your cloud say?
At the age of 12, Alain Robert scaled 8 floors to enter a window into his home after forgetting his keys. A top ranked solo-climber, Robert climbed his first skyscraper in Chicago in 1994. Collecting money for charity with each climb; “Spiderman” (as he is known) has scaled some of the tallest buildings in the world (like the twin towers in Kuala Lumpar). Don’t look down.
As pranksters go, there a few notables. A Frenchman by the name of Rémi Gaillard is one such kidder. His antics around town are caught on film and are worthy of inspired laughter. Be it scoring goals in unlikely places, training hard for the title bout or sneaking onto the pitch for a Montpellier Herault rugby union game; Mr. Gaillard has moxy. The French are funny.
Three days ago, Matt Harding posted the 14-month long, 42 country travelled video of him dancing across the globe. The third of such videos; Matt has visited some of the most captivating and exotic regions on our planet to do a little jig. Never forget to dance.
Like peanut butter and chocolate, stop motion animation and Legos are a perfect match. This spin-off site for “brick filming” looks to be a new and upcoming haven for lovers of the genre. Eventually, one assumes a gallery of movies as well as a much more informative blog on the subject. If you build it, they will watch.
We all like robots. They do what we want them to (unless you install a red light in them, then they can go totally evil whenever they like). Let’s Make Robots is a community to support robotic development and production (like drum machines). As a hobby, of course, not world domination.
