Link Drop for the week ending in Friday the 20th (June 2008)

This is the latest (by late I mean time wise) Link Drop for sites that caught my attention this week. It’s a smaller list than usual as I was MIA for a couple days in Minneapolis for an adaptive path UX Intensive. Early next week I’ll share a couple impressions that I was left with. Until that time here’s some good sites to check out.

EXCERPT: “‘A picture is worth a thousand words’….or so the saying goes. But sometimes authors, journalists, commentators, philosophers and heck, on occasions, even snappers, describe photography and the picture-taking process with a memorable phrase or succinct saying.”

+KN | Kitsune Noir » Feed the Animals by Girl Talk_1214011930567Feed the Animals by Girl Talk Kitsune Noir
EXCERPT: “If it were possible, I’d totally leave you all with some great music to listen to every weekend. Fortunately, Gregg Gillis aka Girl Talk just dropped his newest album yesterday titled Feed the Animals, and you can download it for $5, $10, or for absolutely free. I chose the latter option, mostly because I wanted to hear it before I paid for it. If you pay $5 or more, you get “the options of FLAC files, plus a one-file seamless mix of the album”, and if you pay $10 or more you get “all of the above + a packaged CD (when it becomes available).” I’m not sure how much Gregg’s gonna’ make off this scheme, but I totally wish him well with it.”

EXCERPT: “this news broke on hypebeast a few days ago, so i apologize for the late post, but i’ll add my personal details. we gifted 15 glow-in-the-dark nookas for kanye west after he concluded his glow-in-the-dark-tour. i was lucky enough to have vip seating for the show in philly last month and would’ve given him one in person, but no one schooled me on how the back page pass works. i assumed that i could go back AFTER the concert, but we were stopped and told that backstage was closed. i was supposed to have gone backstage while the opening acts were performing, but i wanted to see rhianna etc….oh well. next time right?”
