The Reptile?

It’s 3D – heck I’ll give ‘em 4D, but I do not see no reptile son…

I didn’t bring my flat bed truck though…

Not quite front page material, but I still wanted to share this sign found at a Taco Bell drive-through in Portland Oregon:

Barcodes – Japan Style

Japan if anything is known for their unique take on product packaging. A design company in Japan created these specially produced barcodes for their clients. Quite creative don’t you think?

New cookies from Korea – I thought it was a bit too creepy for the front page…

Get that mother’s finger out of my school zone!

3-D Animated Views of Old Japan

I have seen a lot of the old 3-D (stereoview) photos of Japan taken by T. Enami (1859-1929) before on Flickr, but Pink Tentacle just posted a bunch of them that were made into animated GIF’s – really bringing the images to life!  The following are a sampling from the collection amassed and posted on Flickr by Okinawa Soba (who has an incredible collection).

You can follow the links under each animated GIF for background information.

[Sumo wrestlers]

[Meeting at gate]

[Buddhist priest in full dress]

[Buddhist ornament dealer]

[Clam diggers having lunch]

[Geisha in a tearoom]

Found by way of Pink Tentacle (click on link to see more photos).
