These folks called A Flock of Segers do clever visual puns on band names, movies, etc. This one's my favorite: Thelonius Monkees

If you're ever curious about why Atlanta weather forecasts are inaccurate, take a hop over to Jon Richards' blog. Today he explains why it didn't get as warm as it was supposed to earlier this week, and why it's so cold today.

Mad Latin makes some good points about the latest incarnation of Atlanta's Underground. Basically he suggests a Jazz club, a Blues club and more stuff to take the kids to before a Braves game which all sound like pretty good ideas. Maybe the old model train set upstairs could be resurrected?

Oh my god, Google has done it again! This is the most amazine mapping software I've ever seen. Google Maps. Zoom into a neighborhood and search for Pizza, Books or whatever.

Found this via Planetizen. They have Atlanta amongst other cities Yellow Pages tied to thousands of still images that can show you what the storefront looks like.

Nice little essay calledUseful Dead Technologies on kuro5hin.org. In particular I miss regular volume knobs in cars! Buttons are soooo annoying. Being the owner of a little postage stamp front yard, I use a push, cylinder-style mower which I love mainly for the quiet (I hate loud motors), the little bit of exercise I get and the looks I get (I live on a street with lots of pedestrians).

Caught this collection of 1960's Brazillian music over on Boing Boing. There're a bunch of LP sleave scans and many MP3's to listen to.
