Almost through this week’s snowmageddon in Seattle. Growing up where people clear roads I’m continually baffled by Seattle. However, it’s not going to change so we’ll probably be swapping out for AWD vehicles this summer to avoid problems next year.
Devoured Blood Letters by Lian Xi this week. A searing read, devastating and inspiring.
Finished reading The Fellowship: The Literary Lives of the Inklings last week. Fascinating read, makes me wish I had a group like that.
Maple old fashioned is the correct donut. There are almost correct donuts that will do in a pinch, but I’d rather be correct.
What’s a blog for?
Time for the annual Elf viewing.
Haunting and beautiful piece of writing.
BRB, off to see a Star War.
It’s time for Typographica’s yearly review of typefaces from the currently-ending-year - 1. It’s so good. Empirica, Reforma, FS Kim, Heldane, and Salvaje Display look particularly lovely.
This feels true, and I would extend its application to many types of teams.
The Sea to Sky Highway between Vancouver and Whistler in B.C. is probably the most beautiful drive I’ve ever done.
Is there anything better than chicken enchiladas with mole poblano? It’s my ultimate comfort food. My cousin made them for our whole family on my birthday last Saturday and there’s enough mole left to freeze and use for weeks to come. I’m very happy about this situation.
Sobering article on online ad performance. Read to the end, the last few paragraphs are real gems.
Cybertruck design is polarizing. Not my taste, but I’m excited to see cars of the future not looking like boring cars of today (Model S and Model 3 fall into the boring category IMO). It’s moves like this that move visual culture forward.
Bike is in the shop for some tune-ups, repairs, and upgrades. I’m very excited about it and can’t wait to start bike commuting again soon.
Apple keyboard drama is interesting, but I’m much more interested in Touch Bar drama. I wrote a bit about it.
Prototyping in Figma is such a breath of fresh air.
Implementing dark mode on my site was pretty straight forward. Gonna sit with it for a couple days before refining it. Thinking about using variable fonts next.
Great rollout of a new look for The Atlantic. Too bad its beautiful new homepage is so marred by overbearing ads.
