7 Things This Week [#129]

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


1️⃣ Uh, so Lynn Fisher made a site with an illustration of each outfit that David Rose wears throughout the entirety of Schitt’s Creek. I love it. [🔗 Dress David Rose // davidrose.style] (Via Really Specific Stories podcast)

2️⃣ Speaking of Lynn Fisher, you really owe it to yourself to peruse through her site. It’s one of the most incredible works of art I’ve seen. She has an archive of all the old designs (she redoes it every year), and a plethora of super creative projects. I particularly like the A Single Div’ project where she creates amazing art exclusively with CSS. [🔗 Lynn Fischer // lynnandtonic.com]

3️⃣ I can’t blame Edgar Allan Poe’s landlord for not issuing his security deposit back. 😂 [🔗 Amanda Lehr // mcsweeneys.net] (Via Jason Kottke)

4️⃣ I think simple web tools are just the coolest. This one lets you clean up any recipe webpage into an ingredients list (with adjustable portioning), and easy-to-follow instructions that can be (optionally) be saved to an account — just by prepending cooked.wiki/ in front of the recipe’s URL. Here’s an example. [🔗 Cooked // cooked.wiki]

5️⃣ This version of one-dimensional Pac-Man — well, Paku Paku — is surprisingly fun! [🔗 Paku Paku // abagames.github.io]

6️⃣ If you ever feel nostalgic for those old animated buttons that folks would add to their webpage, well, here’s a collection of over 4500 of them. [🔗 The 88x31 GIF Collection // cyber.dabamos.de]

7️⃣ I started learning a bit of Morse Code with this tool. Game? Either way, it’s pretty fun and effective hands-on education! [🔗 Learn Morse Code // perry.qa]


52 Albums Project

The Carpenter by The Avett Brothers (2012) — #4/52

If you asked me about my favorite artist at any time in the past 10 years or so, I’d probably say The Avett Brothers. So it’s terribly difficult to pick the first album of theirs to share here. I ended up going with the one that I’ve loved/favorited the most songs in. While their style has changed over the years, I consider The Carpenter to be quintessential Avett Brothers: Twangy, bouncy music accompanying strong lyrical duets.

Follow along on the 52 Albums Project page where I’m making some playlists for you.
