Links of the Week

11Jun10

1. China Farmer Fights Eviction With Homemade Rocket Cannon. Yang Youde has successfully thwarted two attempts to flatten his home in Wuhan, Hubei province by firing the cannon toward demolition crews.

2. Retro kicks: a perfectly preserved 5,500-year-old shoe has been discovered in a cave in Armenia.

3. The Seat Buddy is a great way to cure boredom on long car journey or flights. They cost $24 but you could probably make one from a case and some straps.

4. A Scottish couple have spent thousands of pounds bringing home a stray dog they found whilst on holiday in Mauritius.

5. Jean‑Luc Godard’s film A Bout De Souffle (aka Breathless) is 50 years old this year. The New York Times calls it “[a work of] art that signified a decisive break with what came before”. Without Breathless modern cinema would look very different indeed.

A film still from Breathless
