Dear 100 Hour Board,

What's the best thing on the internet that I probably haven't seen yet?

Dear Doctor,

Spectre and I have a tradition of regularly going through my tumblr likes together, so here are some of our most recent favorites.

AI Weirdness. Janelle Shane runs neural networks on all sorts of datasets for all sorts of humorous results.

Matt Adrian paints things and then gives the paintings entertaining titles.

This video.

And finally, Yesterday's Print tumblr.

Dude,

About 8 months ago someone released this deceptively simple game about making paperclips. It destroyed my productivity for a week while I played it incessantly. Incredible game. Click at the risk of not doing anything else for several days.

Also, the Google Deep Dream generator is worth a look. It renders images in the style of some other image using machine learning. For example, I took a picture last fall of the sun shining through tree branches (top left image) and I rendered it in the style of a painting (bottom left image). The render (right) works by taking small fields of your original image and "recognizing" similar patterns in the style image. It's not replacing your image with parts of the style image; it's redrawing your image using the "rules" made by the style image. Incredible programming and a fun tool.

Dear El,

I don't know if you've seen any videos like this (link to the internetz), but whoever discovered that you can overlay pretty much any song to the throne room lightsaber duel between Kylo Ren, Rey, and the Praetorean Guards is a genius. The one I happened to link is with "Space Jam", but almost anything works. It's also really easy to sync up your own. There are tons of these videos on the internet and they're the funniest thing I've seen on the internet in like forever and half.

Peace,

Tipperary

P.S. Mad props to yayfulness for introducing me to this.

Dear Bunny,

I can't even explain why, but I just love this site about island/lake recursion. It is oddly satisfying when I'm stressed out.
