George Harrison died yesterday. I’ve never been an enormous Beatles fan, but I have an appriciation for the quality of their music and its influence. As a side note, George Harrison wrote my favorite Beatles song, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” This was unfortunate but inevitable.
For all you geek web-designers out there, take a look at 37Signals’ latest launch: Design Not Found, a website dedicated to pointing out the errors we web designers/developers tend to make. Everything is super-professional and you won’t find harshly-worded reviews, just truthful, honest feedback, stuff SU has been so kind as to be doing for me for years.
And now that I’ve really worked tightly with developers on a multi-million dollar project, I understand the importance of small things like showing errors correctly, and this site will do a good job of learning you what to look for. In true 37Signals fashion, the Design Not Found site is a pleasure to use and looks phenominal.
Scott Sinclair finally has a site. He’s probably most notable for his artwork on Hot Water Music covers. The site is a little poorly laid out, but fuck it, he’s an artist.
Makes me want to go dust off a copy of Zterm or something. ATtention, Dumb Thing!

I can guarantee the person who designed this graphic is getting paid too much, whatever the amount.
Confused by the re-format, but damn is this post fucking great. And check out that huge joint. Jeebus.
If you thought the Requiem for a Dream, Traffic, or Memento sites were awesome, check out Donnie Darko.
Insanely huge and definitely a lot of work went into it. Pay attention.. you might miss something. Also, I noticed that the little faux popup windows are OS-specific.. they detect which platform you’re on and give you the right faux widgets in the Flash by default. Definitely slick and almost totally transparent to the user.
