Pica Pic | retro handheld games collection

You know you remember one or two of these old school handheld games. They're still pretty entertaining (but it helps that I'm miles better than I used to be at them). #

Typewriter Ribbon Tin Collection - a set on Flickr

I love this set of vintage typewriter ribbon tins. I'd be a complete sucker to start collecting something like these. #

2010.12.31 Lost Levels: The Legend of Zelda Prototype

Lost Levels: The Legend of Zelda Prototype

Somehow these guys got their hands on an early prototype of The Legend of Zelda, and posted it for us all to play with our favorite emulator. Reportedly it's easier… but you can read about all the changes as well. Impressive find. #

Kiersten Essenpreis - "Skeletor Gets a Root Canal"

If I were a dentist, I'd buy this, and put this in my office. #

Sarah Vaughan, Café Society, New York, N.Y.

A 1946 portrait of an incredible singer. I just ordered a print of this photo to put on my wall. #

Hidden Posters of Notting Hill Gate Tube Station

The tube station at Notting Hill underwent renovation in/around 1956-1959. During the process they sealed off a portion of the passageways, and left things as they were, including this set of advertisements on the walls, which were only recently discovered. #

Darren Drew Design

Site of a new (to me) designer and illustrator, Darren Drew. I particularly like the retro, yet approachable feel to his work. It makes me want to try to make something like that. File this under inspiring. #

Visual Timeline of Crayola Color Changes

An interesting visual representation and analysis on the development of Crayola's color line. I wonder how close the colors fit the actual colors created by Crayola - perfect or not, it's interesting. #

An amazing collection of vintagenessocity. Well selected, organized and of an impeccable caliber. Check out the Japanese Matchbox Labels and Museums collections. Very cool overall. #

Maelstrom 3.0

What a fabulous (albeit random) find! Pay no attention to the horrendous website design, or the obviously old-school game… just trust me that it's a real winner; a super-simple Asteriod-esque game. Download it, play it, love it. Don't tell my father about it, however, since I want to be the one to make him wet his pants in excitement. He misses this game, and honestly so did I. I sure with Ambrosia would bring back some of their other games. #
