7 Things This Week [#144]

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

1️⃣ You can do some wild stuff with scroll-based animations just with CSS. [🔗 scroll-driven-animations.style]

2️⃣ Robin Rendle has a new blog for sharing things about CSS and I’m already hooked. (And I approve this transition from newsletter to blog!) [🔗 Robin Rendle // csscade.com]

3️⃣ Annie Mueller spells out clearly that how her body is used is entirely up to her. That this needs to be said in the year 2024 is appalling, but here we are. [🔗 Annie Mueller // annie.micro.blog]

4️⃣ Tim Cook had sick custom six colors Nike shoes to wear during the latest Apple Event. [🔗 Sarah Kearns // hypebeast.com]

5️⃣ Incredible pen ad. [🔗 Montblanc // youtube.com]

6️⃣ Quinn Nelson shows off the new Apple Pencil’s shadow effect, which is just the coolest little feature. [🔗 @snazzyq // threads.net]

7️⃣ James made a site and RSS feed for a neat new idea: a blog of the day. [🔗 James G // blogofthe.day]

52 Albums Project

Little Voice: Season 1 (Apple TV+ Original Series Soundtrack) by Little Voice Cast (2020) — #18/52

Little Voice is a show from Apple TV+ that you probably never heard of, although you might know the album by Sara Bareilles upon which it’s built (Bareilles was a creator of the show, and her influence forms the musical foundation of this soundtrack). The show was solid, if not stellar, but the music certainly stands out. It’s an album I return to regularly. [I should really check if Brittany O’Grady, the lead singer and star, has any new music out.] I particularly enjoy their rendition of Valerie” and the finale version of its titular Little Voice”. The music is all simple and true (😉) in the best way.

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