- IKEA goes with Verdana | Typophile
the space-time continuum folds in on itself as IKEA switches from everyone's favorite typeface Futura to the ridiculously ugly made-for-small-text-on-monitors Verdana, in the name of style consistency across all countries including asia. Big mistake. This is like IKEA's version of "New Coke". stunningly dumb.

- Art & Copy Film
A documentary film about the truth in advertising. A film by Doug Pray, the Director of Surf Wise, Scratch and Hype!
- YouTube – Tarantino's Top 20 Movies Since 1992
interesting choices with explanation. Wong Kar- Wai's "In The Mood for Love" is not on the list. major oversight. I really like that "Unbreakable" is on it. I loved that movie and still do. incidentally, is it me or is Tarantino looking a bit like a hot tranny mess?
- Good Hair ft. Chris Rock- Official Trailer
now this is.a film i can get behind, hilarious.
- Giant Waterslide Jump
I know this is ridiculously old. my links are a bit stale from my trip up north yonder. but… reason 1023 for why the internet is better than tv: so that i can watch beautiful, priceless short clips like this without having to sit the drudgery of an hour long dumb home movie video show hosted by an unfunny stand-up comic and packed with commercials for environmentally insensitive products i don't need. watch the clip. hilarious, yet stunning in its accuracy.
- Core CMS
super easy to use content management system for photographers and designers "Core is a Content Management System (CMS) made with the designer in mind, someone who want to show off all their work with an easy updateable and customizable website without having to deal with databases, scripting and extensive php."
