Hey folks,

I thought I'd start a new thread for all those strange, unusual, sideways things in the world that have a distinctly Raw Shark Texts flavour to them...

First up, A soundwave that, when plotted as 3d volume graph, becomes a chair

Please feel free to add...

I'm a fan of Aphex Twin, and Richard D. James is certainly an "interesting" fellow, producing quite a bit of brilliant music. The videos to some of his songs are definitely worth watching at least once too!

Today's Strange, sideways and Raw Shark-like link...

35 Unexplainable Photos Of Cats

As I've said in other places, number 31 reminds me a lot of Gavin the Cat, Ian's absent brother.
And yes, Gavin will be coming back. One day.

I am quite obviously an product of my generation, but I find myself wanting to press the "like" button on all things in life (even if it doesn't exist) -- especially the 35 Unexplainable Photos of Cats link.

Oh yes, he does some really interesting things. I've seen those videos!

The cats are great, aren't they? Maybe some of them need stories of their own...

Going back to the musical theme of the first couple of links on this thread, today's Strange, sideways and Raw Shark-like comes from this Guardian interview with Jack White. I think the section below is fantastic - it deals with some of things White did while running his own upholstery business:

"His company was colour coded – everything from his clothes to his van to his tools had to be either white or yellow or black, "as an aesthetic presentation". He wrote his bills in crayon, and hid poems addressed to other upholsterers inside the furniture he restored: "I thought, we're the only ones to see inside this furniture, we should be talking to each other, like the Egyptian masons might leave a message on the stone they were putting in the pyramid. On one occasion, he and another upholsterer formed a band – called the Upholsterers – pressed 100 copies of a single, and hid them inside furniture they were restoring. "Not one's been found yet," he chuckles. "They were on clear vinyl with transparency covers, so even if you x-rayed the furniture you wouldn't be able to find them. I know where a couple of them might be, but it's very funny in that sense."

I love all of this, especially the clear vinyl - it reminds me of what happened with the (now lost) Mr Nobody negative.

I know, I kick myself all the time that I might have missed it, I just hope someone has it and they just haven't shared/realised what they have.

See in black and white, feel in slow motion....

A fascinating TED talk with a distinctly Raw Shark feel...

"How do you read a two-thousand-year-old manuscript that has been erased, cut up, written on and painted over? With a powerful particle accelerator, of course! Ancient books curator William Noel tells the fascinating story behind the Archimedes palimpsest, a Byzantine prayer book containing previously-unknown original writings from ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes and others."

I think this is something rather raw shark like... (considering book sculptures, book rooms, libraries, etc.) (and no, it's not spam, even though the name is susicious)
