💎 Weekly Gems (24.06 – 30.06)

Second week and I’m still doing it, yay me!

I’m reading Cari Mora (newest book by Thomas Harris) but it’s awful. But I’m not ditching books because of my FOMO. (Well, someone printed that, so maybe the ending will be worth the misery.)

I finally watched Hereditary and I’m not sure what to think. Okay, it was intense, but… I don’t know. I know I should get back to Black Spot (French TV series Zone Blanche) and Black Lake (lol) (Swedish TV series Svartsjön), but somehow I end up playing games, writing or reading books. It’s not bad, but my horror addiction is slowly dying.

Enough with the offtopic, here are the weekly gems:

💡 Technology

Twitter Will Put Warning Labels On Tweets From World Leaders That Break Its Rules

Wow Twitter, that’s nice.

Everyone’s a copywriter. Right?

I’m “writing” since I can use the keyboard. I have a blog since I was 13 and when I was 23 I started writing for some tech and game related sites. News mostly, but sometimes a wild longforms appeared as well. And I developed some kind of “style”, with my own flow, long sentences and stories should be easy to read. And as the writer of that article, I hate when someone is correcting me, when something is my decision.

There is a lot of examples of “bad copyrighting”. Great read.

🎮 Games

Apex Legends Season 2 – Battle Charge Gameplay Trailer

Apex Legends’ season 2 will be here on Tuesday and I can’t wait. The new changes on the map look awesome. Turning scortched patches into the green forest, yum! And that’s one of my favourite landing spots. Should be fun. I can’t wait to play with Wattson.

⌨️ Coding

CSS Grid Generator

Pretty handy tool, especially when you’re new to grid and want to make awesome things, like overlaping boxes.

New CSS properties for text-decoration

That’s fancy now! Changing colour of the text decoration – wow, I needed that (and I handled that with border-bottom for ages). I’m not sure about thickness, but dropping the gap with p and g etc. can be handy.

🖌Design

Into the Dark

Google’s approach to dark themes. It’s not perfect, but it’s interesting. I’m still not sure about the colours there, but the general idea seems okay and it’s still something that every designer should read.

Yes, I don’t like Material Design, but hey, better that than Bootstrap styles.

From ‘Suspiria’ to ‘Midsommar’: The Psychology of Color in Horror

I know it’s not exactly the design you’d expect, but hey, that’s about colours! Horrors and colours, oh!

I can’t decide if I like blue-pink retrowave like in The Guest, Dead Shack and The Ranger, or the disturbing green filter like in the Saw and Collector. Hm. Suspiria’s read sounds good as well, but what about black-and-white masterpiece Human Centipede 2 (Full Sequence)?


I guess I wasn’t reading too much this week, but I’m trying.
