The Null Device
Interesting software of the day: Métro, a public transport trip planner for the PalmPilot, with databases for many cities across the world. (None for Melbourne yet though.) (via NtK)
This evening, I went to the Pinnacle café (formerly the Toucan Club) in North Fitzroy, and caught part of a DJ set by one Richelle Hunt (who does the Monday morning show on 3RRR, and plays a lot of chill-out electronica and the like). The set was a bit more uptempo than her Monday morning selections (though not happy-hardcore pill-popping uptempo), and had some good numbers in there (at one stage, she cued Deee-Lite's Groove Is In The Heart; I also noticed CDs by the likes of GusGus, Pnau and Downtown Brown on the console). She will be DJing there every Friday night; if you are partial to that kind of music, it may be worth keeping in mind.
The Canadians tend to make some interestingly weird films; like, for example, this feature documentary about obsessive record collectors. I hope it plays in Australia at some stage... (via Pearls)
What is the world coming to when you can't trust photographs of fashion models anymore? (via RobotWisdom)
Freedman does, however, draw the line at changing body shapes. "I've worked with an editor who shaved inches off Elle Macpherson's stomach to make a cover shot look better. Some editors take chins off Jennifer Aniston, or duplicate a model's right eye and turn it into a left eye because she was squinting. I have a problem with that."
