7 Things This Week [#135]

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

1️⃣ Some excellent examples of long-term running jokes. [🔗 Brendan // semi-rad.com]

2️⃣ Great, now I want a MacPad. It really seems like an ideal computer. Like a SurfaceBook, but with OSes I actually want to use. [🔗 Federico Viticci // macstories.net]

3️⃣ James gives us (another) 100 things we can do with our blogs. #61 is calling to me. [🔗 James // jamesg.blog]

4️⃣ I’ve been experimenting with the <details> element and this post has some great ideas for making it look better. [🔗 Ralph Mason // sitepoint.com]

5️⃣ Turns out leap days are still hard for computers. [🔗 Matt Johnson-Pint // codeofmatt.com]

6️⃣ Arun’s hand-drawn line art of cameras that he uses in blog posts is divine. It really boils down the physical object to its key characteristics. [🔗 Arun Venkatesan // arun.is]

7️⃣ My jaw hung open to the floor throughout this video of Tori Kelly and Jacob Collier recording runs for Bridge Over Troubled Water”. Their vocal control is out of this world. [▶️ Jacob Collier // youtube.com]

52 Albums Project

That’s Christmas To Me (Deluxe Version) by Pentatonix (2015) — #10/52

Speaking of Tori Kelly, she’s featured on one of my favorite songs (“Winter Wonderland / Don’t Worry Be Happy”) in this, one of my favorite Christmas albums. Pentatonix is in my heavy rotation of music throughout the year, but they certainly feature heaviest during the winter because I can listen to their many Christmas albums without fear of retorts from bystanders.

I was never really into acapella until Pentatonix broke into the mainstream back in my college years. I dig their arrangements, I did their chemistry, I did their choice of music to cover and write, I dig their music videos, but most of all I dig their voices. They’re really an A-tier performing group!

Seeing as we got a little snow today, I don’t feel bad about sharing a Christmas album in March.

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