7 Things This Week, 2023-05-07

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


1️⃣ I want this app to exist. [🔗 @yo.dababymemes // instagram.com] (Archived here)

2️⃣ Jason Snell’s got a good tip for hiding things, like article comments, from webpages if you don’t want to see them. I also loved his cheeky rule for hiding the Yankees logo on Daring Fireball when they’re in the playoffs. 😂 [🔗 Jason Snell // sixcolors.com]

3️⃣ Without the NYT branding, I would have guessed that these promos were for Wikipedia. Engaging ad spots, though. [🔗 kottke.org]

4️⃣ The LoveFrom Serif typeface has that special something that draws you in, for sure. [🔗 Mark Wilson // fastcompany.com]

5️⃣ A member of The Decemberists had ChatGPT write a Decemberists song, with chord progressions, and then recorded it. It’s…not half bad, but also not half good. [🔗 Colin Meloy // colinmeloy.substack.com]

6️⃣ Can bad people make good art? This excellent articles helped me consider that perhaps the premise is flawed. [🔗 Charles McGrath // nytimes.com]

7️⃣ It’s been a bit like watching a game of Pong to keep up with Jeff Perry’s internet home saga, but you owe it to yourself to check out his latest site. It’s like playing with a fidget toy to navigate around! (Be quick about it though; I can’t guarantee it won’t change again!) [🔗 jeffperry.me]
