Andrea Zittel’s A-Z West is a wonderful exploration of what you need to live.
Typophonic is a site about album cover typography. It is great and an awesome place to find retro inspiration. If you are a fan of Jazz covers, might I suggest Tashen’s Jazz Covers book. The print version is very expensive, but the iPad version is cheap and beautiful!
Picturefill gets an update to make it work with newest webkit nightlies.
Who Doesn’t like free icons? Well Futuramo is a collection of a free and paid set to bury you in great little icons.
I’ve been contemplating a standing desk for a while, but the $500+ cost for an all in one unit is a little daunting, so this $22 version looks like a possible option.
Vivaldi is a new web browser, built with the purpose of making your internet surfing easier. The only downside right now is that it doesn’t have the extensions I need, but an interesting project.
Top Pens of 2014 on CodePen are just that. There is a pretty impressive range of code and features in the selections. Definitely worth a look.
Top 10 Albums of 2014 is a damn fine list of great alt music from 2014 by Thomas Schrijer. Most of my favorites or honorable mentions are present for sure and a few surprises are there as well. All albums provided as Spotify links so you can get to the listening immediately.
The Software and Services Apple Needs to Fix is an in depth look at Apple’s seemingly insatiable thirst to update their products with broken versions. I have been recently pushed to build a PC rather than buy a new Mac. Unfortunately I don’t believe this trend by Apple will end anytime soon.
I can’t believe that 2014 is done. It has been one hell of a year; I got married, started teaching, and really started taking my career seriously. Each one of these are worth going into in great depth… but I won’t.
Thanks for being awesome and catching up! How are you guys?
