Helvetica – the movie

Whilst i am in a geeky mood, i saw this on Lola’s blog and found it absolutely wonderful – a movie about a font! Lola says the DVD is coming out at the end of September! :) :)

From Helvetica – A Documentary Film by Gary Hustwit:

Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which is celebrating its 50th birthday this year) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives.

I love Helvetica; it is simple and elegant, one of my favourite fonts, along with Verdana and Trebuchet.

LOLCODE

Thanks to my partner for finding this little gem for me! :)

I am attempting to post from flickr, which could be interesting – i’m not entirely sure how this will turn out.

LOLCODE is the awesome programming language used by cats, inspired by those LOLcat macros that appear all over the place, especially on Caturdays! I also found a wonderful post about the grammatical structures of the LOLcat dialect! It’s very amusing, but also entirely serious! LOLcat is becoming a distinct, recognisable, predictable English dialect! We should all be talking to our cats in LOLcat! :)

Back to the LOLCODE, here is a beautiful function for hugs time:
