Fontastic!

I realize there might be something horribly wrong with me, but I think FontStruct might be the coolest web site ever invented in the history of the universe. You can create and share your own fonts or browse and download typefaces created by other users. Yippee! Or maybe, YIPPEE!

There's some background about it in a New York Times article, which also reminded me that I really want to watch Helvetica, the documentary about fonts. (Anyone seen it yet?)

Oh, I also like the NYT article because there's a prominent mention of Baltimore that doesn't have anything to do with urban blight or crack dens.

I long to see Helvetica, and that web site you sent is amazing. Hours of fun for sure!

Helvetica is in my Netflix queue -- I'll post a review after I see it, which at this rate may be in 2011.

wow. i think i should keep my comments to myself on this one.
other than to say, you OBVIOUSLY NEED TO GET A MORE SERIOUS JOB, AS THIS IS YOUR 3RD POSTING OF THE DAY AND YOU JUST GOT BACK FROM VACATION.

Bugs, is the restaurant owned by same people as Spike and Charlie's?

Also, thanks for not making a comment about my 3 posts in 1 day after vacation. That was nice of you.

bugs said...
