Hump Day

Our monthly attempt to reduce workplace productivity.

Not, thankfully, a website devoted to tinfoil. Rather, a cool repository of early recorded sounds and wax cylinders.

A legit website from Italian coffin makers that combines scantily clad models posing with the product. Their yearly calendar of coffin and cheesecake has all the refinement of an Italian TV variety show.

Born Magazine
An extraordinary, fascinating magazine (pictured) that combines new media with fiction, poetry, art, and sound.

Who You Should Know
The prime minister of Burkina Faso? Dude, Ernest Paramanga Yonli. How do we know? This website (and free daily email) features one world leader a day, their bio, a map (in case you don't know where Burkina Faso is), and a little bit about the country.

They Rule
Different kind of rulers. This website enables you to track the relationships among the board of directors of top corporations. Sounds snoozy, but it's not.

Potted Meat Museum
Bills itself (and unlikely to be contested) as "the world's largest and most diverse canned meat collection."

Arthur Radebaugh: The Future We Were Promised
An online exhibition of the commercial illustrator, now mostly unknown, who was a freakin' genius.

Roadside America
Offbeat tourist attractions such as fiberglass giants, the Pickled Pioneer, and the Tee Pee Motel…

Virtual Stapler
Sadly, a virtual stapler.
