Again. And again.

Again. And again. SFMOMA promo mailing.

Again. And again. SFMOMA promo mailing.

Museums, let’s face it, tend not to be good at marketing their product. This envelope contained a membership pitch. Is “Experience it all. Again. And again.” supposed to whip me into a frenzy of art lust? Or is it supposed to be ironic?

Who knows? But all it actually does is make me as weary as Madeline Kahn’s character in Blazing Saddles (she’s been with hundreds of men, again and again).

A new look for blog.rightreading.com

The former look of this blog (since around 2006)

The former look of this blog (since around 2006).

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated the look of this blog, mainly because I had customized so many features that I never had the heart to undertake an update. But it’s gotten long in the tooth, and as you can see from the above image, it wastes a lot of screen real estate in the empty screen areas at right and left. It was a thing at the time, and I don’t even remember why.

In addition, the blog was not designed to be responsive. You could use a plugin like wp-touch or the newer mobile feature in jetpack (currently experiencing bugs) to get a mobile version, but those are ultimately makeshifts. This design by Anders Norén is distinguished by thoughtful typography and a clean look, and it is fully responsive. I decided to go ahead and effect the transition, even though I’ve only just begun my customizations, and I’m sure much will turn out to be broken. But in the end I think it will be good, and for now it is, I hope, readable.
