The one where there were three rubbish trucks (and you won't believe what happened next!)...
Relax, but not for long, it’s time for TL:DR
This is only the second edition of TLDR this year, thanks to our new monthly format.
And somehow next week is March already, which feels like a year happening way too fast. Maybe it’s because we’ve had a busy start to 2022, maybe it’s because managing calendars is an endless nightmare, which is why we’ve turned to Motion to help manage our tasks, check it out (unpaid plug but Motion folks, Hi!)
Anyway, it’s that time again. When we try to boil down the inter-workings, and inter-thinkings (not a real word), of the agency for your reading pleasure.
Please enjoy TL:DR Edition 17.
This week, the graphic-design-sphere has been churning out some funky content. But, underneath the font-foundry-fanaticism and Comic Sans-comebacks (I’ll get to this in a second); the LAM designers have been asking a single question: How the F**K (fuck) are people storing animation and video inspiration? Where do you put it? A dedicated browser window with a billion tabs? A RAM subscription? What’s the answer?
Y’know, we’re usually splaining things to you, but we really can’t go on without answering this question. We need you to splain this to us – what are you using to house your video inspiration? Where does your ‘ViDeO iNsPo’ folder live? Plz help.
Okay, maybe that was a bit dramatic, we have points to raise, graphic-design-is-our-passion, after all:
Comic Sans is the typographic representation of millennial humour. Discuss.
Here’s a gallery of 3D effects that also shows you with the shaders required to run them. Enjoy.
Damn this is a cool site. Damn.
At Love & Money, we live on the internet. But sliding into the #code-city slack channel, you realize some people live on the internet, some of us are just vacationing.
Some us could hardly contain their excitement at the development that all browsers now support WebGL 2.0.
The rest of us googled what WebGL 2.0 is. It supports 3d rendering. That’s probably good, right?
Some of us not only know what React server components are, they’re concerned with how they work.
And apparently this means something to someone.
But there is one aspect of the internet that unifies the enthusiasts and the professionals alike.
And that is of course the profoundly human desire to launder money.
TL:DR is not a place to explain (Attempts to Explain is, check it). So we won’t be diving into Pete Davidson’s age-old query: being “So, what the hell’s an NFT” (not “Hey Kim, is Kanye going to hire someone to kill me?”).
But if there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that the new owner of Cryptopunk #5822 (Chain CEO Deepak Thapliyah), whilst $24mil “poorer“, is going to seriously turn some heads when he rocks up at the metaverse club.
Holla it's yer boy Dog, and no, I don't think I pulled that off either.
In recent times #vibe has served as a persistent landing zone for atypical links and ideas. Though many worldwide have returned to offices — likely with some degree of apathy — many of us at L+M remain sparsely distributed, meaning Google Meet is still the go-to.
As URLs shared in Meet have a small lifespan, content deserving of immortality is crowned thusly in #vibe, albeit sans context. Content like this:
Click here for some low pageantry "High Peasantry" cosplay analysis via our definite TikTok enthusiast, Adnaan. Totally accurate? Needlessly indignant? You decide.
For those of you who were wondering the correct answer to How many RUBBISH TRUCKS that day, the correct answer was >3:
So if you know what a typical Slayer fan is, and you're thinking... you know, then, well, you know. If you didn't know, then watch this, soon you might go and, and, and start y'know thinking you do know:
The battle of the bots continued in round 12 and wankbot vs Tony Robbins ended with a clear and decisive winner:
When asked to comment on his victory for you, his adoring fans, this was the result:
Treat 'em mean, wonky.
Ciao it's yer physicist Newton, my snowboarding skills are…
For the past week, the hottest topic between project managers and admins has been Motion. They’re so hyped it’s been mentioned in the intro of this TL;DR too.
Motion is “time management / to do list...integrated into ur cal” according to our project manager Mona.
Isn’t that what any other time management thing does? Well apparently, the smart thing about Motion is that an AI figures out the to-do list for you.
Here’s how it works.
You set up a ‘task’. You can set its priority in three different ways; a ‘Hard Deadline’, ‘Soft Deadline’, or ‘Someday’. You then set a deadline for the task. Done.
Once you start adding tasks, the AI sorts out your entire calendar for you. For example, it will prioritise tasks that have a ‘Hard Deadline’, and push out other things for a later date. Isn’t that brilliant? You don’t need to spend 30min every day sorting out your calendar! Let computers suffer through the decision making process.
on the free trial testing and surely there’s heaps more to it, but Mona’s definitely into it already:
"I don't need pen + paper anymore, I just need Motion™”
Just a heads up that this is not an affiliate at all, she’s just known for talking like an Amway distributor for anything she loves.
