So, I'm using Raleway. It has numbers that descend, though, like the 3, 4, 5, etc. But it also appears to have numbers that do not descend. Yay. How do I use them?
Bonus points: how do I make UIKit use them? posted by jeffamaphone at 5:56 PM - 3 answers
So I got the go ahead from work to hire a photoshop artist to mock up some fake stuff for a presentations. Imagine for our purposes it's essentially for scenes for fake TV shows from the 70s. So I went to look on ELANCE and...well I have no idea what I'm looking for here. How would I search for such a person? Is there a term or series of terms for someone who specializes in speculative photoshop/graphic mockups? IS this a thing?
Or is this a case of post the job and see what comes back? posted by rileyray3000 at 1:44 PM - 8 answers
Looking for quality, regularly-updated web content as an alternative to the potpourri discussion-based sites that usually make up my day online. [more inside] posted by theraflu at 9:07 AM - 10 answers
I just inherited literally a large garbage bag of wartime government documents, newspaper cutouts, photos and other memorabilia from Russia and Ukraine ca. 1910-1970. What do I do with the stuff I don't want, and also how do I fumigate it? [more inside] posted by griphus at 6:49 AM - 14 answers
Im up here at the tip of the iceberg of Philly Soul with The Spinners, The Delfonics, Blue Magic, etc. but I want to dig deeper into this stuff and find some bands/songs/records that I might not encounter otherwise, since history has a way of remembering the big stuff and forgetting some of the amazing but less well known stuff.
So help me down the rabbit hole here if you please to find even more music in that vein. posted by Senor Cardgage at 11:52 AM - 7 answers
I'm thinking about starting a newspaper, maybe in a few years. So I am looking for communities without newspapers. Please tell me about the largest such one(s) you know of, about how many people are there, and anything else about the area that might help me decide. posted by maurreen at 11:59 PM - 16 answers
My youngest brother is getting married next month and, through the oft-celebrated-on-MeFi wonders of a Universal Life Church ordination, I'm set to perform the service. My brother and his spouse-to-be are both video game aficionados. I'd like to subtly insert some clever video game/nerd culture references into their vows. I'm not personally a gamer, though, so this stuff doesn't come naturally. What's more, I'd like to sort of walk a line such that said references would not be so over-the-top, eye-roll inducing, or confusing that non-gamers would be confused or irritated. Ideas? posted by DirtyOldTown at 8:11 PM - 21 answers
The only Broadway musical I can actually, whole-heartedly enjoy is West Side Story. Am I the only one of my breed on this? Why might this be? [more inside] posted by JimInLoganSquare at 6:06 PM - 39 answers
I am interested in variations -- that is, not just a body count -- of the doppelganger and evil twin themes in fiction, folklore, and movies. [more inside] posted by Clyde Mnestra at 1:39 PM - 58 answers
Asking for a friend: Which MST3K episode is this from? Crow gives Tom dating advice and one of his helpful tidbits is "Try not to bore her with your knowledge of war atrocities." [more inside] posted by Librarypt at 9:04 AM - 3 answers
I'm looking for music that is about working hard (even if there are other themes and meanings as well, as in the title example), and isn't complaining about it. The Tom Waits song named qualifies, as would Lizzo's "W.E.R.K.", if that gives you an idea of both the range of music I am open to hearing and how far I'm willing to stretch the theme. Your ideas are appreciated. posted by dee lee at 5:16 AM - 40 answers
