Son of Linkblogging
- It has been awhile since I last visited, but webcomic pioneer Daniel Merlin Goodbrey’s site,E-Merl, is nice and simple. I love it, and of course, I love his new strip on the front page, Brain Fist, which is availble for dowloading to your video iPod via Clickwheel.
- Speaking of simple, Futurosity redesigned. My jealousy is transparent – the functionality of the site gives me a longing in my heart. Looks amazing on Safari.
- Paul Graham’s new essay, How To Do What You Love is very timely and hits home for me in a variety of ways. I think I’m on the right path for me, and I’m not stuck trying to accomplish the dreams of a high school boy, thank God. I’ve worried about that issue, but now actually having done one graphic novel and other assorted work, I’m hooked.
- Seems like I’ve been talking quite a bit about type lately, and the lack of typographic education that design students today receive. Know Your Type by Red Labor is a wonderful article about how to handle type.
- I was raised on Kraft macaroni and cheese, and to this day I have a pretty strong aversion to any cheesy pasta. The Chief finally made some of her special recipe macaroni last night and it was awesome. I may be in love again. Strangely, it sounds very similar to this recipe from Martha Stewart I found via Airbag.
- Michael Bierut chooses a new design philosophy over on Design Observer that makes complete sense, once again showing that you don’t have to have your head up your ass in order to be a leader in the design world. Bravo.
- I signed up for a free 4-issue trial of The Economist because I read nothing but great things about it. Having had access to their premium content for a few days now, I’ve been enjoying it, but I’m far more excited to get my first issue. Their design sense is magnificent. I’m slightly worried about too much overlap with my daily WSJ though. Any opinions?
- Tell your kids to suck on this. Oo! Ouch! You crazy sonuvabitch!
- Ben forwarded on this great article about Snapper Mowers saying ‘no’ to Wal-Mart. I especially like how it doesn’t paint Wal-Mart to be the bad guy, just that Snapper didn’t fit their business because of their quality.
