Hi. My name’s Chris Glass. This is a place where I journal with photos and store links (because I have a horrible memory).
A new habit for the season
Some Good Places to Start
Answering the question, “What are you up to these days?”
The Chapters of Your Life
This started as a brief presentation about intent and photography that my good friend Erik turned into a short film as a birthday surprise during the pandemic.
Creative Mornings Talk
This video from 2013 is long, but lays out who I am and why I think design is awesome. I was nervous as heck through the whole thing.
Treat Yourself Like a Client
Sequel of sorts to my Creative Mornings talk where I discuss how I made a plan to improve quality of life. From the 2016 Layers Conference.
A few favorite things
Books, movies, video games, music and random other things all mixed together in a visual, sortable grid.
Cast of characters
During lockdown I wrote short essays about folks I missed and linked up relevant posts — an attempt to connect the dots.
Great Discontent Interview
An old conversation that fills in the blanks of my career and whatnot in an interview format. My tip of the hat to Ryan and Tina for the moment.
Been using this category thing to get around the photo journal. Adding here for easy access.
My old website
I refuse to throw anything away (digitally at least). Here’s my old site cobbled together with spacer gifs and tables.
Swipe through favorite websites or shake for random fun. This looks like an extra fun way to browser the web. / via Daring Fireball
Rachel Spellings swatch book paintings
These tiny paintings are delightful.
Andy J Pizza & Sophie Miller have a book coming out that puts visuals and words to some of the invisible things that make up the human experience. At first blush, it’s a kids book, but there’s a kid in most of us. (Unfortunately, some are still bullies, but whatever!)
Arc just leapfrogged every browser with Boost, a way to customize how websites look and ”zap” features you don't like.
Make an annoying RoboCall in order to get rid of annoying RoboCalls
MSCHF exploits a dumb government loophole that allows for robocalls as long as a human initiates them. Now you can help raise money and awareness to lobby against them by firing up a ton of spam calls.
Busy Beaver Button Museum
I’ve had oodles of buttons produced by Busy Beaver (they do fantastic work). I didn't realize they’ve also made a book and started a button museum. Fun. / via Grace
David Friedman gets no mail and you can too
Another lovely Ironic Sans newsletter filled with a bevy of steps to remove yourself from all those annoying piece of mail no one wants. I've spent the last 15 minutes or so going through the list and opting out all over!
97X Modern Rock 500
Streaming now! 500 indie songs with original DJs from 97X. Been enjoying it all morning and will dip my toes in the looping broadcast throughout the week.
Ghost Golf Belts
I don't golf, but I love the notch-less belt I got here. I count it among my better investments in life. (Got the “Bubba” but they have oodles of variants.)
