Thank you for making. ❤️Nothing pushes my morbid fascination buttons like @willsommer’s Right Richter. @smashingmag Uniform vertical space between an element’s disparate children: .example > * + * { margin-top: 1rem; }Franken out and Moore in would be a hell of a moral statement on both sides of the Senate aisle
Retweeted by Rob Weychert @saila The beauty of Sass is that you can learn as much or as little as you need! It doesn’t have to disrupt your existing CSS workflow.
@beep I’ll definitely be looking into that! @JennLukas I’m a latecomer to Grid. Before its browser support exploded, I made a Sass tool for float-based layouts.
I keep forgetting to turn off Do Not Disturb after @hqtrivia. 🙉 @iamrumz Oh I see, you mean copying/pasting the actual vector art into a text file. And yep, that worked. Not minified, but oh well. Thanks!Now the exports appear to have given up entirely. 28 minutes and counting. WTF. @iamrumz No dice. I’m exporting via Export As and the Show Code button is mysteriously grayed out.Illustrator SVG exports are now taking *several minutes* to appear in my Finder after I save them. Anyone else having this issue?
@CaseyMalone In alphabetical order, my top three (for the moment) are The Florida Project, Lady Bird, and Raw. @MikeSacksEsq @gregsestero Greg’s might not be the most objective opinion. 🙂 I’m seeing the movie later this week, so we’ll see.“Sitting inches from the president, Hannity covered the biggest issues of the day, serving as rudder and prompt.”…’s time to bring my favorite holiday meme back

Rereading The Disaster Artist, skeptical as ever that James Franco will convince me his adaptation needed to exist.Though the game technically only began yesterday, it’s not unfair to say I lost a week ago. to express how much I love this. Something about seeing artist and art feeding each other and moving together… the GOP couldn’t help themselves. They had to look right in the people’s eyes as they fucked them, and whisper, “We’re not fucking you.”“[T]he [American] poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires.” —John SteinbeckIf they said, “The rich will get richer, and they deserve it, whereas you do not,” enough brainwashed poor people would still be onboard.Maybe more than its contents, it’s the disingenuousness of this tax bill that upsets me.

Not sure why. @mikecostanzo @RWD @beep Thanks for the heads up! I forgot to update the canonical URL. Fixed now. Were you trying to copy/share via iOS?I wrote a bit about the typography and spatial relationships underpinning my site’s recent redesign.

@fanelli The best part is just sitting and stewing about how I’m being lame, rather than actually doing something else with the time.Maybe I’ll spend the night in combing through years of ticket receipts in my email to quantify the experiences my inertia has cost me.It’s one of those nights where I have tickets to a show but I can’t drag my ass out of the house and I hate myself for it. @essl fake news @nickdunn Don’t think I have that problem.
