I’ve decided I’m going to take one day a week to post a bunch of links. Maybe that day will be Thursday.
Helvetica: A Documentary Film By Gary Hustwit: I’m sorry I missed the screening of this film when it was in Philadelphia this spring. I love typography! But, it looks like the DVD will be out at the end of September! “How did a typeface drawn by a little-known Swiss designer in 1957 become one of the most popular ways for us to communicate our words fifty years later? And what are the repercussions of that popularity…?”
Judy’s Book: Put in your location, and Judy’s Book will give you local deals and discounts in your area. This web site is a good idea, but turned me off pretty quickly. First of all, the name is too similar to Angie’s List. And I love Angie’s List, and hate copycats. Second, it didn’t recognize my zip code. Third, when I put in my actual city and state, it gave me a bunch of generic sale announcements from CVS and Pep Boys (there isn’t a Pep Boys anywhere near me, that I know of). But try it with your town and let me know how it goes.
And finally… from Overheard Everywhere:
Frat guy: You ever been to the Franklin Mills Mall?
Bimbette: No! I live in King of Prussia! If I left King of Prussia to go to any other mall, it’d be like leaving Italy to eat at an Olive Garden. No!
