No idea who this guy is, but I really like his flickr set of album covers. Eclectic and tasteful.

Selective Memory Theater

Selective Memory Theatre from moka on Vimeo.

Created by Matthias ‘moka’ Dörfelt, Selective Memory Theatre is a machine-like perception and memory installation which receives the newest images from flickr that get distorted, mixed and blended to pursue notion of sensory noise and portray memory and perception. Simultaneously these images are mapped as “similar memories” to the secondary projection representing short- and long-term memory layer and their mutual relationships.

Finca Bellavista

Incredible treehouse community in Costa Rica.
Finca Bellavista is named after Rio Bellavista, which flows through the middle of the community, and for the breathtaking beauty of the surrounding vistas, vibe, and bountiful flora and fauna present.

Eponymous Hat Tricks

A list of songs that share a name with the artist who perform it, and the album it's on. As an example, "Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath, on the album "Black Sabbath".

*Update - someone's compiled a better, massive list.

George Thorogood

Cool little story via Wikipedia -

George and the Delaware Destroyers were friends with Jimmy Thackery and the Nighthawks. While touring in the 1970s, the Destroyers and the Nighthawks happened to be playing shows in Georgetown (DC) at venues across the street from each other. The Destroyers were engaged at The Cellar Door and the Nighthawks at Desperados. At midnight, by prior arrangement, while both bands played Elmore James' "Madison Blues" in the key of E, Thorogood and Thackery left their clubs, met in the middle of M Street, exchanged guitar cables and went on to play with the opposite band.
