Weekly Wrap-up #8

It’s Saturday! You’re well into your weekend by now, with all kinds of weekend like activities planned. If you’re participating in Camp Nanowrimo now’s the time to catch up if you’re behind, and zoom ahead if you’re caught up! And if you’re not participating in the April madness than you can just lay back, enjoy the slow progress of spring, and use this weekend to relax and refresh for another weekend of insanity.

Here’s some cool stuff we found around the internet last week, that we’d like to share with you! There’s steampunk, ambient music, and the key to the Voynich manuscript, so keep reading!

Doctor Evermore’s Forevertron

Last week we regaled you with haikyo, the Japanese form of urban exploration. This week we have something even more spectacular–the world’s largest scrap metal sculpture which just happens also to be the most amazing steampunk wonderland ever created. Called the Forevertron, it’s located in rural Wisconsin, and is criminally under documented. Let’s change that today.

Cracking the Voynich Manuscript

The Voynich Manuscript is the world’s oldest unsolved riddle. I might be exaggerating, but seriously. It’s baffled cryptologists and linguists alike for centuries, but now one university professor thinks he may have found the key.

We Love Music

Every writer needs music to write to, every painter needs music to paint to, etc. Here’s some really cool space-inspired ambient music from the Interstellar Initiative’s honorary artist Alex Storer. It’s exceptionally good for something found in the sidebar of an astronomy website, so you should check it out!

That’s all for now!

Now go outside and enjoy the spring fever!
