A homemade Christmas gift that special someone is sure to love. And by special someone, I mean the cat.

Fun with color palettes. Enter a keyword into Color Scheme Generator and it will create color palettes from a collection of Flickr photos it finds. Adobe's Kuler also makes automatic palettes from a photo of your choosing.

Meet your printmaker. Just what I've been looking for: lists of and features on a variety of print shops from all over. Awesome.

The antique phonograph music program. Here's a half-hour documentary in three parts about WFMU DJ Mac Camella and his lifelong love of eclectic music and sound. Mac plays hand-cranked 78s and Edison cylinders live on the air like they were meant to be heard. Lovers of antique and novelty record players will pee their pants at the goodies shown in this doc. His collection of record oddities is also full of amazing gems. Kids today will never know the excitement of cutting a playable record out of the back of a cereal box.

Musical slime. Ladies and gentlemen, presenting the Bit Blob. Bleeplabs really is the work of a mad genius.

The Best of the Bad and the Worst of the Worst. Bargain Bin Review has a helpful list of "so bad they're good" movies. And of course, the "so bad you'll claw your eyes out" category as well.

Experimental music by Mayan school kids. Mulatta Records just released a third CD in a series of experimental and improvised music written and performed by kids. Yol K'u features Mayan Indian children playing their own compositions on giant marimbas. (See also The Tangerine Awkestra and Da Hip Hop Raskalz.) From the press release:
Some musical compositions are made by children who don't know the instruments, and used musical games to compose pieces that sound a bit like American minimalism and a hiphop tune in Chuj, the local Mayan language: others are very accomplished performers who play the traditional repertoire.
More experimental music news. Electronic duo FM3 have made a second generation of their fantastic Buddha Machine, a pocket-sized device that plays ambient loops. The lo-fi anti-iPod is getting good reviews. (Thanks, Jason Dragon)

You can never get enough photos of public typography. Jules Vernacular is the latest find, documenting magnificent signage samples. Some quirky faves:

Wristwatch boombox. When I was a kid people dragged luggage carts with customized ghetto blasters bigger than themselves, competing to see who had the biggest and baddest. Now it's all about who's got the smallest. Too bad this doesn't play MP3s. (via boingboing)

Pigeons, a family album. Just added some pix of our fancy pigeons. They're all real characters, I tried to capture their personalities as well as I could. Here's a bonus photo for you.
