7 Things This Week [#117]

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

A quick heads up: I’m doing more link and quote posts over on my microblog day to day. Those posts have a lot of overlap with the type of stuff that I typically share here on 7 Things. But it’s fun to get them out individually as I see them, and I like sparking conversations about them with that network. And, frankly, it’s easier to share them there. If you want to see more like this, consider following me: @jarrod@micro.blog

1️⃣ Look at this fantastic Apple Store that never came to be. Now that’s a town square I’d hang out at. [🔗 Filip Chudzinski // storeteller.de] (Via Michael Steeber)

2️⃣ Hilarious, sad, and true. This SNL skit about the ridiculousness of American measurement systems, etc. is all of these things. And well-timed seeing as I had just listened to this segment of Upgrade. [🔗 Saturday Night Live // youtube.com]

3️⃣ Did you know Pixar had a special Think Different’ poster made just for them? I bet you won’t guess which character it featured. [🔗 @dariusdesign // threads.net]

4️⃣ I always love these remastered and colorized views back into history. It makes it all seem more real (duh) and relatable. Check out that Warners theater! [🔗 NASS // youtube.com]

5️⃣ You can do some pretty crazy stuff with CSS, like these incredible(ly) fun screensavers. [🔗 Bryan Braun // bryanbraun.com]

6️⃣ What’s this? A promotion site for a physical book that includes games built around an intricate 3D model? Pretty neat! [🔗 shifthappens.site]

7️⃣ Damn, do I ever want to visit these 50 best bars in the world. The interior architecture of Paradiso, for example, is just exquisite! [🔗 worlds50bestbars.com]

Take a Chance

Thanks for reading 7 Things. If you enjoyed these links or have something neat to share, please let me know.
