…It’s Website Wednesday: W/ Extra Duck?

W/ Extra Duck

W/ Extra Duck is a fantastically contagious collection of art pieces that have been given the addition of a little extra duck.

Some are hidden and some are plainly obvious, but it turns into a sort of game to try and locate them all, and you will probably find yourself rather amused by the little rubber guy after a while, so head on over to Flickr and appreciate art w/ a little extra duck.

…It’s Movie Monday: J.O.B.: A Short Surf Film

Red Bull would like to remind you that your life sucks.

Ok, so maybe that’s a little harsh, but their film, titled J.O.B.: A Short Surf Film, compares the lives of a suit and a surfer with a rather unsurprising conclusion: surfing is more fun than working a 9 to 5.

However, despite the fact that this is obvious surf propaganda, it does serve as a good reminder that sometimes, life is just more fun when you spend time outside of convention.

…It’s Website Wednesday: StreetArtLocator?


The StreetArtLocator (v2) helps you locate street art near you. (Considering the name, the obviousness of that statement is not lost on me…)

With specific tags for graffiti, galleries, paintings, stickers, stencils, sculptures, and installations, it’s a Google Map powered guide to the beautiful art that’s all around you for controversially public consumption.

Just click on your area to see both a location and a picture of the street art that has been spotted and documented. Then, if you’re out and about and come across something that you’d like to share, just snap a pic and add it to the database to help those around you enjoy your find as well.

…Yesterday was April Fools’ Day?

“You know the rules, and so do I…”

Yesterday was April Fools’ Day, but I feel like it should have just been called Official Rick Roll Day, since so many sites (DYH included) used it as an excuse for a little meme misdirection. (YouTube Rick Rolling anyone and everyone that clicked on a featured video link was a classic!)

However, not all sites went for the easy/obvious gag, and some managed to pull some pretty funny stunts. Below are some of my favorites:

Gmail Custom Time

Google Custom Time

ThinkGeek’s line of April Fools products, including the Pii Pii Brothers

…Your news van is slow?

Two news vans arrived at the same local drag strip in El Paso, Texas at the same time to cover a death at the strip due to legal drag racing, and then proceeded to do the obvious thing: Race their fully loaded news vans against each other.

Thankfully, no one is getting fired because of this stunt (since I think it’s awesome) but “disciplinary” action will be taken.

Remember: If you’re going to race your news van against the rival’s news van, make sure you ask the crowd not to put the video up onto YouTube first.
