The history of typography, stop motion by Ben Barrett-Forrest (Forestmedia.org)
Someone out there please make this mashup
They’re the same tempo and the `mortal kombat` yell fits perfectly in the last 4 beats of the 16 beat loop.
I kinda wish Tumblr could implement vim keybindings in to the text editor. It’s a shame, I should have built that when I had the chance. Then again, I did try to put some keyboard shortcuts in…
Anyway, chugging along with demoknight.
I finally got the backbone views rendering correctly. It took me a while searching across the web for the “proper” way to do things…backbone documentation is just silly. I’m still not sure how the initial render compares to the updates, and how the events will factor in to this particular project, but we’ll see.
Again, dates are hard to deal with.
Next up: in-place task editing and the smaller features.
Haven’t blogged in a while. Typing text posts on Tumblr is kind of laggy now that the in-line thing is here…it has to shift down the entire page of images every time, so no surprises there. Wish there was a better way. Wouldn’t a popover / shadowbox have sufficed? It’s hard to think of these things while doing the design/initial conception though I guess.
Getting near the end of the semester, so looming projects/finals are discouraging any side project work. Actually, mostly laziness is blocking side project work.
I’ve been trying to really work on ‘demoknight’, my current side project, but haven’t really made much ground. Anyway maybe I can make some concrete progress if I log my thoughts.
Right now, finally figured out how to implement this thing with backbone.js. Backbone is a pretty big pain. I finally understand that you need to use JSON to pass from the backend to backbone, and there’s no better way than a jquery ajax call after the dom is loaded…kind of annoying because load latency is a big factor in this particular project. But whatever, one extra ajax call won’t kill anyone.
Today I’m going to try to get the home page to do the construct and render correctly.
It’s really hard to remember to do frequent git commits when you’re working alone.
