Have really been enjoying getting into petite-vue for a little progressive enhancement on some client work this weekend. Nice to be able to use the reactivity mental model of Vue without a full app framework. github.com/vuejs/petite-vue

Stoked on this Kerry Awn illustration we commissioned for Local Memory, which I’ve finally gotten on the homepage. local-memory.org

Heartened by Flickr’s response to the removal of the Internet Archive Book Images collection. Hope that the details all work out well, but the direction of the reaction is definitely encouraging. Well done. flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72

Flickr has deleted over 5 million book scan images associated with the Internet Archive Book Images collection and their related user-contributed metadata. Consider signing an open letter asking that Flickr reconsider its decision. publicdomainreview.org/blog/20

The always great BBSP theorizes the U.G.H.Z. (Un-Grammable Hang Zone), an aesthetic fixation of mine I have always struggled to articulate. Kafé Kerouac is my favorite local U.G.H.Z. I’m always on the lookout in new towns, but they are harder and harder to find. blackbirdspyplane.com/p/un-gra

If I see a cassette cover with a Bodys Isek Kingelez installation come through my email, you have my attention. If your promo copy then namechecks DJ Screw, I’m in. I had heard a bit of La Roche, but this new one from Nyege Nyege Tapes is revelatory. nyegenyegetapes.bandcamp.com/a

Started experimenting with rebuilding my personal website (untouched through the COVID era) with Astro. Already excited to see much better it could be for some of the cases in which I reach for Gatsby. astro.build/

Made an advent-style countdown calendar to show off some notable work entering the public domain in 2022. publicdomainreview.org/feature

My Jadeite keycaps have arrived after about 18 months of waiting, finally completing my COVID-extended build of the wireless Keychron K6 I use with my iPad.

[Lovely review] of The Public Domain Review in new issue of the Times Literary Supplement today

All Night Radio was absolutely one of my favorite SXSW live surprises (and records) of the early aughts. Raven Sings the Blues has a nice writeup on the occasion of a small reissue. ravensingstheblues.com/all-nig

“The Desert Is Paper Thin” by Corntuth is countrified ambient and probably my favorite thing I picked up on the last Bandcamp Friday. Now there’s a crowdfund campaign for a vinyl release. corntuth.bandcamp.com/campaign

Last morning run in the Kempen for the summer before heading back to Ohio for the school year.

Really excited by both the lovely presentation and the contents of Rob Weychert’s Plus Equals algorithmic art zine. plusequals.art/

Sunday morning long run for 16 miles through the Flemish farmland followed by some Dutch-Tex-Mex smoked mackerel and egg breakfast tacos on homemade tortillas (which I’d intended to photograph, but forgot).
