Thelma & Louise - Nova Twins

Danke Danke Danke @der1000Sascha for this tip. I can't express how much my jaw dropped after I watched the Live-Footage of the Nova Twins opening for the Prophets Of Rage. These girls kick (b)ass!! \m/ still need convincin'? eat this


The OBGMs - "Not Again"

Oh yes Baby, gimme more, definitely ! \m/ Yet another great band that Danko Jones' podcast made me aware of. So good.


Saint Agnes - Brother - Live From Lockdown

for several weeks now I'm listening to the Danko Jones podcast, while I take a walk to catch some daylight and escape the self imposed social distancing hell that is home office. Not only is Danko one of my favorite musicians and his band an all time favorite of mine since I saw them opening…


I made a thing: CoronaDeathToll

(updated: 20.12.20, see below) As if doomscrolling the grim news of a world in a pandemic wasn't depressing enough, today I had the idea to add (yet another) visualisation around the numbers of deaths that Covid-19 has caused. This was sparked by the boiling the frog effect that the rising daily numbers of deaths seem…


Why The Web Is Such A Mess - Tom Scott

Screencapture of the video, a bunch of out of focus LEDs from a server rack

This is a very very good video about the web and the tracking mess that we're in. (via @faulancer)


From Gatsby to Eleventy - Amber Wilson

Amber writes about her switching the "motor" of her blog/website. What I really like is the in-depth comparison and reasoning which kind of shows that the "rule of least power" should also be more often applied not only to the technology in general, but for our choice of tools as well. And I admire her…

Painting With The Web - Matthias Ott

This. This. This. This is what initially brought me to the early web; the improvisation, the bugs, the happy accidents the intersection of exciting new technology, not yet understood, and the excitement of actually seeing in the browser directly if what I tweaked in the html gibberish works or not… This naive playfulness matured, of…


WordPress Default Themes Look Changes from TwentyTen to TwentyTwenty

Since the recent WordPress auto update incident left all twenty-* default themes in my install, here's a gif how the look changed over the last ten years… Time flies, eh? And yes, there's no "TwentyEighteen" Theme - thanks to the development of the Gutenberg editor, which took longer as expected at first and so the…


WordPress 5.5.3 Update

WordPress Logo an die VW-Fabrik gephotoshopped

Na, heute war aber ordentlich was los in WordPress Updatehausen. Kurz nachdem gestern das WP 5.5.2 Security Update erschien, wurden einige der von mir verwalteten Installationen plötzlich erneut aktualisiert, aber auf eine Alpha Version von WP 5.5.3. Irgendwas haben die da seitens WordPress verbockt, weil sich unbemerkt ein Fehler in die frisch ausgerollte WP 5.5.2…


Billy Nomates - No

Das ist für mich DIE Entdeckung 2020 (ja. das Sleaford Mods video vorhin hat mich neugierig gemacht, und was bin ich froh darüber!) Fett.
