Important, two-part transmission from my couch on a sweltering, lazy Saturday: 1. Rick and Morty is really great. 2. Ice cream is too.

“The entire idea of America is about believing impossible things. Nobody said those things had to be benign.” https://t.co/wlnQ797VTySending my love to Munich.Read the whole thread. https://t.co/fJp9a6yIFd @MechaNielsen Indeed. In a crowded superhero marketplace, I guess there’s something to be said for being direct.This Luke Cage trailer is such an unapologetically puerile male power fantasy, I am embarrassed on its behalf. https://t.co/8Yq3Z7bbTZBegan the day by reading the transcript of Trump’s nauseating RNC speech and two different fact-checks of it.

Yeah, so @TheActualMuffs kicked all of the asses tonight, so wherever you are, if your ass is hurting, there it is.Sending my love to Ankara.The stomach-turning story of how the Cleveland cops that killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice avoided indictment. https://t.co/AlXMPlr6duI’ll just leave this logo here. https://t.co/uVeDG5mmqSA great new design with lots of delightfully novel touches. https://t.co/ePOauU48EfThis project is amazing, and she followed it up by becoming a 2016 @usairguitar national finalist.

@ryanessmaker It only works on a flattened image or background layer.

Thanks! @meyerweb Cool, thanks; I’ll look into both! @amahnke Thanks, I’ll check it out! @meyerweb I read a lot of King as a teen, and I’m on the fence about whether I want to revisit that space or try something different. @HCMarks Thanks for the recommendations! @beep @kissane Well this appears to be right up my alley. Thanks!I’m looking for a good vacation read, preferably in contemporary horror or neo-noir, but I’m out of the loop on both. Any suggestions? @katiekovalcin As always, @tangentialism’s shirt game is on point.

Whatever you’re feeling good about, a six-hour bus ride can cure it.Analysis of our love/hate relationship with celebrities is a worthwhile endeavor, so long as it is not conducted by celebrities. @davedawson Sorry buddy!

For my NYC friends, owning a home is nearly impossible. 100 miles away, a growing number of my Philly friends own TWO homes.An election year is a good time to step away from the KISS mantra and think about how design can be an ally to nuance.

2016 is an angry drunk.I don't want a future in which politics is primarily a battle between cosmopolitan finance capitalism and ethno-nationalist backlash.
Retweeted by Rob Weychert @tangentialism I have twice seen a guy on the C welcome newcomers to the train by playing the Superman theme and proclaiming himself king. @tangentialism I’m fine with people standing in the doors. It’s my preferred spot. But etiquette issues arise when the doors open. @susanjrobertson Buses are a different animal, but I’m not opposed to making this a series.I am just about ready to write a lengthy, diagram-heavy essay on the lack of a communally understood etiquette for standing in subway doors.
