Today's links from others post is sponsored by the Netherlands, Sweden, and names which begin with Da-. Thanks, guys!

From Danny: LaCie designs new hard drive disks that look like Legos!

From Daniel, a slew of great video links:
  • Russian kids take urban climbing to a whole new level. I think these kids are the new X-Men. Seriously.
  • Victor Wooten shows why he's the best bass player in the world. Says Daniel: "Keep your peepers peeled for him playing the melody by just touching the strings without actually pressing them to the fretted neck. Resulting notes are pure overtone harmonics - right on the desired pitch."
  • Blixa of Einsturzende Neubauten reads a housewares catalog for several commercials. These are absolutely brilliant. Watch them in order - first, second, third and fourth - to see an increasingly manic Blixa. Genius!

From Dave: The Hollywood Librarian. Woot!

Have a spiffy weekend, everyone. If you're in town, the annual ReinDog Parade goes on tomorrow, along with Zazoo & Satori's Bowie Tribute Night at Jacobs. Come out and say hi!
