  1. Archigram

    Their Design Museum exhibition is quite good but mostly like looking at a big coffee table book of 2000AD artwork. Needed more explanation, context and background.

  2. BBC Radio 3 - Building a Jazz Library

    Not as good as the NPR one, and oddly focuses on individual tracks, rather than albums.

  3. NPR Basic Jazz Record Library

    With discussion about each album in audio or transcript form.

  4. Bush administration strips info on women’s issues from government web sites

    Ridiculous wars are bad enough, but somehow the rewriting of science and history seems even more scary.

  5. Guardian Unlimited | Arts reviews | Oleanna, Garrick, London

    Saw this last night: David Mamet and Julia Stiles… heaven! Although the review’s right about the unfortunate lack of ambiguity.

  6. HistoryHound - Search web pages you’ve visited in Safari

    Builds a more permanent index from your temporary Safari cache. Sounds fantastic. If only I used Safari….

  7. Pepys’ Diary: Tuesday 23 April 1661

    The coronation of Charles II makes for an excellent couple of days for Samuel:

  8. Los Angeles Department of Water and Power: Trees for a Green LA

    They give free trees to residents because more trees means greater energy savings.

  9. iCalViewer

    Can show your iCal events and to do’s on your desktop, travelling right-to-left as time moves on. Awesome.

  10. IMDB’s Alternate Interfaces

    Nice to see the IMDB still makes its data available. there must be interesting things one could do with this…

  11. 20 years of 4AD records

    Coincidentally, I’ve been playing Red House Painters for 8 hours so far today. It’s that kind of day.

  12. The Spy School

    Not-yet-made movie constructed from requested CCTV footage of the director. The plot could use some work I think.

  13. Topographic page layout

    A bookmarklet that uses background colours rather than borders to make a page’s HTML structure clear.

  14. Mobile Bristol - Queen Square - 1831 Riot!

    Walk around the square and a GPS-equipped iPAQ plays location-relevant historical sounds…

  15. The Early Films of Peter Greenaway

    Nice site by the BFI aobut his early shorts, The Draughtsman’s Contract and A Zed

  16. The Passion of the Christ (2004) - Film Review - Sight

    I believe Mark Kermode could find similarities between The Exorcist and every film ever made.

  17. Putting 40,000 Readers, One by One, on a Cover by David Carr (NYT, Registration required)

    A magazine will customise the covers of its subscribers’ copies with a satellite photo of their individual homes.
