On Why The Social Justice Warrior Ideology Is Fundamentally Medieval

Now on the Cargo-Culted EE Design Hour:
I've found this suggested circuit to drive some LED strips (analog, 5-channel RGB+CCT) with the TLC59711 PWM IC which @catoutofbed recommended to me ages ago.
The IC has nice features which should prevent flicker unlike many others, but it's not designed for driving strips. It's an open-drain device. Thus the workaround.
I have concerns, but no EE skill to know what may be wrong with this. Total current thru each channel shouldn't exceed 500mA, though.
noob circuit design, lamps
Would anybody care to have a look at my glowy circuit so far?
It's a lamp with three different color temperature LED strips and a single off/on/adjust slider control which varies the brightness of the strips to go from off to warm dim to cold bright.
This is by far the most complex design of the three or four I've made in my life and it's largely cargo culted. I have concerns. Help appreciated. #electronics

Haha, this morning's news roundup on #Facebook
This is the built-in test page I just printed from my #Laserjet using the failing toner cartridge. This machine has firmware dating to 1998 and has printed over 18,000 pages in its lifetime, over a thousand of those since I bought it nearly a *decade* ago, for $20, with the toner cartridge I'm just now replacing. I've cleaned it *once.* If paper jams, I pull it out and it works again, end of story. #oldtech
