This was a really good movie. I really liked the way the director broke the fourth wall.

Brilliant culture-jamming-style art project.

NPR’s “To the Best of Our Knowledge,” on fonts
Great show including an interview with Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones, who created the font Gotham, recently popularized in the Obama campaign (and incidentally the font I use for my new site design, although I chose it before Obama’s team did). Also an interview with Matthew Carter, who designed Verdana and Georgia, two of the most prevalent fonts in the Internet. Listen to an RM stream here, or download the podcast MP3 here.

Hey Crackhead
One of the greats from the Best of Craigslist.
