7 Things This Week [#115]

A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet, posted on Sundays. Sometimes themed, often not.

1️⃣ What a wonderful home page. 😊 (Or should I say web house?) But don’t stop there, the experimentation on Anh’s site is divine. [🔗 Anh // anhvn.com (via @sod)]

2️⃣ Google opened a new visitor center at its Mountain View campus. It’s hard not to draw comparisons to an Apple Store or the Apple Park Visitor Center. One thing that stuck out to me while watching this news coverage is that the Googlers talking about it almost seemed like they were making up the buzzwords as they went along. Apple execs use buzzwords, but their talking points are always well-rehearsed. [🔗 ABC7 News Bay Area // youtube.com] (via Michael Steeber)

3️⃣ Pete Davidson threaded that needle in his cold open. 🪡 [▶️ SNL // youtube.com] (via Jason Kottke)

4️⃣ This is one Christmas special that I’m pretty excited for! Hannah Waddingham’s singing as Rebecca in Ted Lasso was always a highlight of each season. Now she’ll have a whole show to show off her impressive pipes! [🔗 Apple TV+ // apple.com]

5️⃣ Libraries are awesome. Check out these Binge Boxes’, each with a handful of themed movies for a fun movie night. Clever groupings, too. [🔗 austin.bibliocommons.com] (via Greg Pierce)

6️⃣ This incredible art is all sketched in Apple Notes! [🔗 Chris Silverman // notes.art] (via @gabz@social.lol)

7️⃣ I’m not much of a gamer, but I appreciate and respect their value, and the care that goes into that art form. Zach Gage and the team at the new Puzzmo group lays out a strong case for games in their manifesto. [🔗 puzzmo.com]
