The left-leaning chart is quite pretty—the rich dark red and powder blue balance well. The thick bars and all-caps Gotham Black lettering add to legibility and the perceived weight of the stats. X-values are clearly delineated by year and month, y-values require no mental math. It’s just nice to look at. On the other hand, if the text weren’t written in Helvetica, I’d say the right-leaning chart was fired out of Excel using the default settings. #FF0000 and #0000FF look super harsh together and the rotated text, “(in millions)” denotation, and nearly empty x-axis make me feel like the designer was rushing to meet a deadline. And—at least online—I’m being punched in the eyes with a whole lot of flickering whitespace 24 times/second. I can’t get around the near-perfect correlation between political alignment and design sensibility. Is it that the arbiters of style and fashion are almost entirely lefties? Reflective of an educational gap between the two parties? Linked genetic traits? Someone help me out here.

natashavc: So Spike Lee made this movie joint called Summer of Sam about the serial killings in New York in the Before Time. Um, this is the scene where David Berkowitz is instructed to kill by his talking dog. This scene is done with ZERO irony. OH how we LAAAAAUGHED. Fortunately the Baba O’Riley montage is there […]
