Happy Friday and man, it's been a bit! The combination of work, moving into a house, YouTube, and my freelance work have just made it so something had to give, and sadly this newsletter drew the short straw.

I hope you all like the tweets and videos, because I'm just going wild on those this time. Enjoy!

  • How I Experience the Web Today is upsettingly accurate.
  • And this week in fonts kicks off with Martian Mono, a free monospace font.
  • Boucan is a $30 variable font that's pretty rad.
  • And Comic Code ($80 for the whole family) is a monospace font based on Comic Sans that is better than it has any right to be.

The Videos

What an awesome, organic moment ❤️

Knotwords is the latest game from Zach Gage (Spelltower, Good Sudoku, Ridiculous Fishing, Really Bad Chess, and more) and IMO it's the next great word game (and includes a daily puzzle that's the same for everyone which me and my wife are already enjoying comparing notes).

This is 99 minutes breaking down what's incredible and also kinda really bad about the biggest game of the year, Elden Ring.

The Corridor Digital crew used iPhones to recreate that iconic 300 shot.

Doom with ray tracing is incredible 🙌

I love this video because it's the big budget version of "I'm a blogger and no one really cares about this but me, but it's my site and I'm going to do it anyway."
