#826: Now That You Mention It

July 18, 2013

Notes from the Manager

Related Strips: #814: Projection; #815: Intellectual Sloth; #820: Moving On; #823: Just a Thought

Short one this time — partly to balance out the long one on Monday, and partly because I’m moving on Monday morning, so I need to get these next two done quickly, so I can pack all my shit up.

Those of you on the website will see new sharing icons below. I wanted to replace the inefficient AddThis code I was using with something faster (ShareThis is even slower), so I made little bit of inline SVG+CSS. It uses zero Javascripts and zero linked images and weighs only about 6k, so it is much, much faster. (I don’t get statistics like I would with AddThis, but really, I don’t care about that stuff). It does, however, not play nicely with older browsers that don’t like either inline SVG or base64-encoded transparent PNGs. If that’s the case, much of the rest of the site probably looks jacked up anyway, and you should get a new browser.

If you run a website of your own and would like to use this yourself, I’ve put it up over at Github.

Trailer Watch: Jenny Slate in Obvious Child

Thursday, April 17, 2014

This apparently hit big at Sundance, and who doesn’t like Jean-Ralphio’s sister on Parks & Rec? Okay, maybe a lot of people, but Jenny Slate is fuckin’ funny. Anyway. Obvious Child is an indie comedy-drama about a young potty-mouth comedian (Slate) who finds out she’s pregnant and… just watch this.

Obvious Child was written and directed by Gillian Robespierre. It hits theaters on June 6, 2014. It’s so indie, its official movie site is on Tumblr.
