Scarlets V Munster

Last weekend Munster travelled to Llanelli to face the Scarlets under some horrendous rain. The Scarlets came out the victors 10-6. You can check out the photos I took pitch-side for the MRSC here.

CSS Flexbox

I'm a bit late to the CSS3 party here but CSS Tricks have a great visual tutorial on CSS Flexbox and the various layout options available in flexbox. Don't forget to use CanIUse to check browser support though, and here's a handy CSS prefix generator for that cross-browser support (and see some extra steps are here for Safari).

Ryan Starkey at StarkeyComics.com released a fantastic animated gif and blog post about the spread and decline of the different languages across Ireland and the UK from 400AD onwards.

A German photography living in Michigan setup a Bird Photo Booth with a motion sensor camera and captured some amazing up close images of feeding birds. The images are available to buy as postcards on her Etsy shop here.

TV Review: Umbrella Academy

I just finished watching Umbrella Academy on Netflix and I think it's great! The marketing image used above doesn't do the series justice. Based on a comic series by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá, the show is about a family of orphan misfits with superpowers that were groomed as children to be a crime-fighting team. That didn't last long and the show starts years later when they are all reunited after their father's death. For me, the show and its aesthetic is a mix between Watchmen, Fringe and Daredevil. The character development is great, the plot and narratives are entertaining and the visual elements and soundtrack make it easy to watch. Also, Robert Sheehan is amazing, he must have picked up some additional acting tips while hanging out with Jock & Con :-p
