7 Things This Week [#131]

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


1️⃣ iFixit’s tear down of the Vision Pro is really something. So much tech packed into a really small space. [🔗 Charlie Sorrel // ifixit.com]

2️⃣ Spoiler, but wow, I really did not see Internet Explorer coming as the brand behind this ad. It’s great! [🔗 internetexplorer // youtube.com] (Via Matt Mullenweg)

3️⃣ This site is a collection of poems written by AI based on The New York Times headlines of the day. [🔗 newspoetry.kaplich.me]

4️⃣ I really kind of dig tiny internet experiments like how Adam Newbold has hooked up his status site to convey all the information within each one’s URL. [🔗 notes.neatnik.net]

5️⃣ For the App Defaults trend, Jason made a playlist of the apps he uses, rather than the traditional blog post. Yes, you read that correctly. [🔗 music.apple.com]

6️⃣ The Deadpool movies are always a treat, and this new one looks to be no different. Except that it could change everything, again? [▶️ Ryan Reynolds // youtube.com]

7️⃣ I used to be pretty against tattoos in general, and never wanted one myself. Now I love seeing how people express themselves through the ink they put into their skin. Cory’s post about the meaning behind each of his body artworks made them even more appealing. [🔗 Cory Dransfeldt // coryd.dev]


52 Albums Project

1989 (Taylor’s Version) [Deluxe] by Taylor Swift (2023) — #6/52

In honor of the Taylor Bowl — er, I mean Super Bowl — today, I thought I’d highlight a Taylor Swift album. 1989 isn’t my favorite of her records, but I do come back to it often. Blank Space” is the quintessential track, for sure, but the whole thing has a great vibe and it’s what I turned to this evening.

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