working draft. 🙁 that means we can use SOME parts of it, broken, in IE in 2013. 😀 😀
But yeah, it looks like the dialog code from XUL.
Wait… LOVE the authors list… EVERYONE but Microsoft. LOL
While the world moves on ahead, something in our guts tells us that Micro$oft is going to continue minding their own business, to the detriment to the web as a whole. IE6 is almost dead, but its descendants keep tilling much of the same ground their forebear left behind.
Regardless of MS, having more box model to play with is sweet. You want to be able to make operating systems redundant? The ability to create stable and usable User Interfaces is key. That’s why I love my Macs. The UI is peerless.
Giving the entire web the ability to make UI similar to Firefox is certainly a Good Thing™
Much to my chagrin, I’ve apparently been listening to a “genre” of rock called Gypsy Punk. (At least, according to Wikipedia…)
I discovered this on accident, as I was simply looking to see what bands were covered on Devotchka’s “Curse Your Little Heart” EP, when I noticed in the sidebar that good ole’ trustworthy Wikipedia had them listed under a genre I had never heard of.
So I says to myself, “Self, you should click on that link and see what all of this nonsense is about…” LO and BEHOLD!, there were a few other bands that I listen to also, like Beirut (EDIT: Beirut isn’t Gypsy Punk, but they def have gypsy music influence). I’m sure the others get tossed into my Devotchka Pandora station too.
Now, I’m not a giant fan of labeling types of music, but there is something to be said for being able to search for a common term and being able to have relevant results. For instance, if I Google “Post-Punk”, I know for a certainty that I am gonna find Joy Division in the results.
Self, you should click on that link and see what all of this nonsense is about.Me. A few paragraphs up.
So now, if I search for “Gypsy Punk”, I know that certain bands that I like will show up under that term, as well as others that I hadn’t previously known about.
Enjoy this video of Devotchka playing their song “How it Ends” live from 2006
Finally got around to posting this from the premier of that Hulk movie with Ed Norton. Dave and I thought up the idea, and he was sufficiently brash enough to try to pull it off, much to the chagrin of his parents who found out post-movie.
I helped David select the clothing from some hipster used clothing store here in Spokane, then we appropriately ripped them to give them the impression of impressive musckulator-ness, and applied the green makeup. (Let me tell you, applying that kind of makeup to a sweaty dude’s back is not something that I want to attempt again for a very long time.)
Illustrator, how I love thee. I’ve missed you so much over the years.
I must apologize for being tempted by your more popular sister, Photoshop. Alas, I even dared to peek into your step-sister Firework’s pantry, even knowing full well that I would never love her.
I remember the days we spent making ads together, back in our younger newspaper days. Fondly, I recall the level of control you allowed over my designs, making my borders, swashes, and backgrounds a thing of beauty.
But, I left you when things got good. Because everyone was more familiar with Photoshop, and because all of the tutorials use her rasteriffic philosophies, I turned a blind eye to your best qualities.
With you, I can make a perfect box, line, border, or shape and always know that modification is only a matter of grabbing a control point. None of the messiness involved in masks or other such nonsense .
But now, after trying out her wares, I return to you, downtrodden and sorry. You make my life complete, and your artwork scales well.
Here’s a photo I recently took in Spokane. It’s a bridge crossing the Spokane river, with my buddy standing in as a model. And he was super. Yay for supermodels!
So I set the tripod up, facing down the bridge for the perspective shot. I have a bunch of Raleigh facing me, but they didn’t work out so well for what I was looking for. I then realized that he had on a white shirt under his jacket, and that I could blow it out with proper exposure and post-processing.
To get the color, I merely tweaked the color balance way off the charts toward that violet color, then desaturated it a bit.
I know it’s silly, but here is my entire list of bookmarks as collected via Firefox and sorted/pruned in Textmate. As it turns out, it appears that I am a web designer, based on what appears to be the overwhelmingly predominant collection of web programming/design links. (Of course, this is from my WORK computer, so it’s no surprise.)
Feel free to flip through and comment. I didn’t strip out pages from same domains, since then a bunch of the code.google.com stuff, or anything hosted by Google, would be stripped out.
And by the way, this is easily the largest Roman Numeraled(?) ordered list I’ve ever seen 🙂
I just had published an interview that I conducted with František Štorm, the creator of a wonderful new typeface named Moyenage. Storm is widely renown in the font community as a great typeface designer, and Moyenage lives up to that reputation.
This is quite possibly the worst thing ever made in the history of man, ever. I mean, a fanny pack for your head?!!!! As someone said on Twitter, “Man, I hate hipsters.”
(Never mind the fact that it was probably me who said that on Twitter. But the point is the same.)
By the way, the fanny pack was invented in 1962 by Melba Stone, according to my txt message from ChaCha. And a coworker of mine is starting a website called “Gold Fanny Pack“, and apparently I contribute to that. Jené is currently also in the process of contact the Cap Sac people to see if she can get some custom hats made. Sickening.
I guess I should link to the website, for those of you interested in betraying mankind with your fashion sense. Cap-Sac.com, or follow at twitter Capsac
