Five things on Friday [on Sunday] #129

Things of note for the week ending Friday June 19th, 2015.

Apologies for the delay this week – zero dead time plus Father’s Day weekend meant there were many many other things to do before I could get to these things.

Shall we?

Things of note for the week ending Friday June 19th, 2015.

Cat things

1. ZOO KEEPERS OF JURASSIC WORLD

JW

I saw Jurassic World last week and, aside from the EPIC PRODUCT PLACEMENT throughout, it’s actually a very good summer blockbuster (and absolutely well worth seeing at the cinema).

Now that the movie is on general release, some lovely little memes are popping up, such as this lovely little one entitled ‘Zoo Keepers Posing Like Chris Pratt‘.

LOOK!

So much fun.

PS. Even my friends are getting in on the act.

PPS. There’s a cool ‘Making of’ video re the animatronics said uber sequel. That’s pretty good too.

2. VIDEO ROYALE (MORE PROOF)
When the end of the year rolls around and Marshall Manson and I have to see how many of our 2015 trend predictions came true, we’ll be able to point to the bad boy below as yet another piece of evidence to support the social media platform ‘Video Royale’.

That’s right, Twitter has rolled out Autoplay.

3. CHEAPS BY DRE

Own Beats headphones?
They saw you coming, man.

In these headphones, 30% of the weight comes from four tiny metal parts that are there for the sole purpose of adding weight. [It is] estimated that the COGS without labor or shipping is $16.89 – yet Beats is able to successfully retail these headphones for $199+. This is the power of brand.

Ouch.

4. TAXIDERMY
Ever wondered what happens at the World Taxidermy Championships?

(Yes, they’re an actual thing)

Wonder no more.

5. STEALING TIME
A guide (that I practice), by Warren Ellis.

Bonuses this week are things that have genuinely made my jaw drop:
