These crop circles don’t look like they usually do. It’s complex enough but seems to lack geometry.

Crop circle - but different
Crop circle, or not?

From Metro.co.uk:

It may look like the latest aliens to land on our planet have been drinking and driving, but these bizarre patterns, discovered in a corn field in Holland, have a much more mundane explanation.

They were made by a drug (cocaine) user who was attempting to escape from police in his father’s car… Poor farmer.

WeirdConverter: converter for unrelated items

WeirdConverter is a converter with a twist.

The site is simple: it is like a currency converter, but for completely unrelated items. Play around, and suggest other stuff you want to see – we will make it happen.

Currently you can convert things in weight and in length/height.

Barry Wood’s NAMM Oddities 2007

Barry Wood's NAMM Oddities 2007

Every year mastering engineer, recording engineer, producer, composer, graphic designer and web page designer Barry Wood (The Other Room) reports on oddities found at the yearly NAMM show.

Barry says:

It seems that every year I spent more of my NAMM cruising time checking out the various small companies that all get stashed off in some side room. Many of the products from these companies are never seen the by the mainstream either because their potential market is too small, or most people simply can’t figure out what the hell to do with it.

That isn’t to say that these products are ill-conceived or poorly executed, it’s just that sometimes they’re, well, a little odd. This situation made me think that there ought to be a place for people to come marvel and wonder at all of these products, thus, the NAMM Oddities was born.

Barry’s report is full of wonderfully odd instruments, geek toys and “you figure it out” things.

Go check out all of the 2007 NAMM Oddities at Barry’s website, and if you’ve never visited before make sure to check the archives of previous NAMM shows as well.
