“[P]art of the conditioning of the ‘patriarchal ideal’ is to make women feel empowered by it on their ‘own terms.’”
Good men froze and died at Valley Forge so I could live my life never once caring about a royal baby.
Retweeted by Rob Weychert @klimtypefoundry Already on my list. 🙂 Thanks! @hybrid_alex Yes! Thanks! @essl Oh man, yeah. Those days are over for me too. @timandshoko I like Bernino/Bernina (used ’em before) but they don’t go wide enough for what I’m looking for this time. Thanks anyway! @campbellgraphic @houseindustries Fits the bill! Thanks, I’ll add it to the list. @PhilippNeumeyer @macartisan @djrrb Ah, true, I hadn’t noticed that. Thanks, I’ll give it another look! @typotheque @kupfers @bicvudesign Handsome! Thanks! @kupfers @bicvudesign @Fontstand Thanks! All good suggestions, but like you said, self-hosting for some might be out of my price range.
“They made — gasp — compromises. They declined to let the ideological perfect be the assassin of the achievable goo… @bicvudesign I like @Fontstand’s concept, love the filters. They have one family that’s a potential fit (Zeppelin) so I might give it a try! @garbnzgh Yep, on my list. Thanks! @bicvudesign Someday! They’re not quite ready for prime time yet.Thank you all for the suggestions! Good stuff. I’m hoping for a future where variable fonts and container queries/u… Morning Jackhammer: The Return of the King 🌈🌈🌈
@misterjworth Now that you mention it, it’s worth a shot, and the price is right. On the list it goes. 🙂 @misterjworth Totally, but I’m aiming for a variety of distinct widths, not just weights. @macartisan Eh, it’s a bit much to unpack and I don’t want to do that publicly just yet. Appreciate the suggestions though! @macartisan I like a good slab, and Soho is in the neighborhood of what I’m looking for. 🙌🏻 @macartisan Very nice, but monospace isn’t quite what I’m going for. Thanks anyway! BTW, here it is: @mleland Very nice! Definitely the kind of thing I’m looking for. Thanks! @clagnut @JeremyTankard Ooh, maybe! The Compressed is still wider than I’d like for my purposes, but this is a contender for sure. Thanks! @jeremyzilar It is, but just one width, and more text- than display-oriented.Type nerds: Are there any display faces out there with as many weights/widths as Knockout or Acumin, but available as a self-hosted webfont? @trammell @ChappellTracker FYI they’re playing in Brooklyn on Wednesday (though they’re doing Zelda on this tour).
The only thing stupider than getting mad at the weather is THIS STUPID FUCKING WEATHER @mattsinger 😩 @mattsinger Goddammit don’t make me regret canceling Hulu.Talking Heads’ “Sugar on My Tongue” except it’s “Broccoli in My Teeth”AT&T appears to be much better at collecting money than spending it, so congrats to their shareholders I guess?
FYI morning! I tossed together a tiny portfolio to highlight some projects I’m proud of, and the work I like doing:

@zachleat Appreciate it, but this particular torrent of mentions is not unwelcome. 🙂I want to see your personal web site—reply to this tweet with your URL! (Inspired by @robweychert)
Retweeted by Rob WeychertThe sun is out and @frank_chimero has a beautiful new site. Pretty good Thursday so far. @beep @karenmcgrane work is a mix of site-wide UX and custom layout and art direction for features, working in a newsroom brimming… 102nd birthday to the great Beverly Cleary! I still call lamps “dawnzers” in solidarity with Ramona Quimby.
Superb @davatron5000 post of collected wisdom. (In the spirit of Cunningham’s Law, I say Sturgeon’s Law is missing.) the political climate surrounding Trump’s impeachment rumblings and that of Nixon’s resignation. @garbnzgh Lovely work! Is that a custom @underafter display face?!a lost art form

Retweeted by Rob Weychert @robweychert @adactio Let's see how many fancy things you find on my site.
Retweeted by Rob Weychert @deccamuldowney Pretty sure I’ve never met a person with a personal site who doesn’t feel that way. 🙂It turns out that when you broadcast your love of personal sites, people send you their personal sites. 🤗 *love* visiting people’s personal sites and seeing how they present themselves to the world when the format is entirely up to them.Virtually every time I see a URL to someone’s personal site—in a social media profile, email, resumé, etc—I get a twinge of excitement.My favorite thing about iOS updates is using Look Up and discovering that my system’s dictionary has vanished yet again. Always a hoot!
