Suicidator City Generator: a procedural city creation script for Blender
"Suicidator City Generator (SCG) is a Python script for Blender... With it, you can automatically create entire, three-dimensional modern cities in a matter of seconds by adjusting various parameters, such as city size and complexity, rather than creating each building, each street, and each texture manually." Lovely; the preview video should give you a good idea of its capabilities.

BLDGBLOG: NYNEX, Embedded Angel of New York City
"...halfway through the film, the Ghostbusters realize that NYNEX isn't a phone system at all: it's the embedded nervous system of an angel – a fallen angel – and all those phone calls and dial-up modems in college dorm rooms and public pay phones are actually connected into the fiber-optic anatomy of a vast, ethereal organism that preceded the architectural build-up of Manhattan. Manhattan came afterwards, that is: NYNEX was here first." There is no way this wouldn't be awesome. And: a great write-up from Geoff.

Momentary disruption |
"That’s why I enjoy @towerbridge so much - less the concept of machines talking, but more a simple reminder of the disrupted moments in everyday city life." All this is also true. Beautifully put, by Tom.

YouTube - C'était un Rendez-Vous (1976) - Claude Lelouch - Ferrari 275
A wonderful film, even if it's not strictly the whole truth. Claude Lelouch drives through Paris in the early morning a bit like a madman. The effect is awesome; on the big screen, it's incredible.

Dominic Wilcox: Anti-Theft Bike/Car Device
These rust and scratch stickers are designed to make your beautiful bike/car look rusted and scratched so that passing thieves assume it's not worth stealing due to its apparent shabbyness.

cityofsound: A birth, in 13 places
"I thought I would write a little about how the places and spaces that were familiar to us had begun to warp and twist in entirely new ways, and how I experienced new, unfamiliar places as a result of the birth."
