Kill powerpoint Jul 1, 10, 10:41 p.m.
tonight I had a conversation with a friend who just started school to get his MBA (he has an MFA already and is well versed in photoshop, indesign, and illustrator) on how we have to nip Powerpoint in the bud.
I've talked to him about convincing other aspiring entrepreneurs to leave behind their Microsoft ways, and enter adobe PDF's Slideshow.
ANyone else Agree? Powerpoint needs to end, and Im all for marketing myself to make good looking presentations for the masses. It particularly irks me when I see a TED talk, (which I remind you is to be the top of their field)
and their presentation visually fails.
Im Comic Sans Asshole... Jun 15, 10, 7:04 p.m.
I'M COMIC SANS, ASSHOLE.
BY MIKE LACHER
- - - -
Listen up. I know the shit you've been saying behind my back. You think I'm stupid. You think I'm immature. You think I'm a malformed, pathetic excuse for a font. Well think again, nerdhole, because I'm Comic Sans, and I'm the best thing to happen to typography since Johannes fucking Gutenberg.
You don't like that your coworker used me on that note about stealing her yogurt from the break room fridge? You don't like that I'm all over your sister-in-law's blog? You don't like that I'm on the sign for that new Thai place? You think I'm pedestrian and tacky? Guess the fuck what, Picasso. We don't all have seventy-three weights of stick-up-my-ass Helvetica sitting on our seventeen-inch MacBook Pros. Sorry the entire world can't all be done in stark Eurotrash Swiss type. Sorry some people like to have fun. Sorry I'm standing in the way of your minimalist Bauhaus-esque fascist snoozefest. Maybe sometime you should take off your black turtleneck, stop compulsively adjusting your Tumblr theme, and lighten the fuck up for once.
People love me. Why? Because I'm fun. I'm the life of the party. I bring levity to any situation. Need to soften the blow of a harsh message about restroom etiquette? SLAM. There I am. Need to spice up the directions to your graduation party? WHAM. There again. Need to convey your fun-loving, approachable nature on your business' website? SMACK. Like daffodils in motherfucking spring.
When people need to kick back, have fun, and party, I will be there, unlike your pathetic fonts. While Gotham is at the science fair, I'm banging the prom queen behind the woodshop. While Avenir is practicing the clarinet, I'm shredding Reign In Blood on my double-necked Stratocaster. While Univers is refilling his allergy prescriptions, I'm racing my tricked-out, nitrous-laden Honda Civic against Tokyo gangsters who'll kill me if I don't cross the finish line first. I am a sans serif Superman and my only kryptonite is pretentious buzzkills like you.
It doesn't even matter what you think. You know why, jagoff? Cause I'm famous. I am on every major operating system since Microsoft fucking Bob. I'm in your signs. I'm in your browsers. I'm in your instant messengers. I'm not just a font. I am a force of motherfucking nature and I will not rest until every uptight armchair typographer cock-hat like you is surrounded by my lovable, comic-book inspired, sans-serif badassery.
Enough of this bullshit. I'm gonna go get hammered with Papyrus.
Favorite Stock photo site Dec 10, 09, 2:12 p.m.
This has probably been asked a lot, but I was wondering which Stock Site designers were using most these days?
Which are the hottest ones? which ones do they hate?
or is it pretty much GEtty, and Corbis running everything?
First sex theme park closed before it opens. May 18, 09, 12:22 p.m.
China's first sex theme park has fallen to the wrecker's ball before it even opened, after officials deemed it an "evil" influence.
Developers billed the attraction in Chongqing as tasteful and socially beneficial. But senior officials conducted an emergency tour of Love Land last weekend after it attracted worldwide publicity, state media reported today.
"The investigation determined the park's content was vulgar and that it was neither healthy nor educational. It had had an evil influence on society and had to be torn down immediately," a municipal publicity official told the Global Times newspaper.

Apparently the White House.
