Some cool architecture with floating islands and forest like apartments. Another newsletter of the week, this week for awesome UI animations. A bunch of cool things for web builders. Spoiler alert: Pac-Man, JS, and VR.

If you think you can help tweet me @bizarrodevs.
Read through the comments for some excellent categories suggested by readers. My personal favorite is The Sunk-Cost.
