1. Find all the ff’s in your paper. Replace them with ff ligatures. 2. Find all the fi’s in your paper. Replace them with fi ligatures. 3. Find all the fl’s in your paper. Replace them with fl ligatures. Fun all around.
Hanging out in big groups dilutes the need to be independently interesting.
“We have too many Christian schools in the room, so, you know that five-letter word that describes Miley Cyrus? Like when she was pole dancing at the Teen Choice Awards? Ok, well I am a font-Miley-Cyrus.” - Steve Kent, Columbia Student Press Association 2010
¡Nueva York Mañana!
I haven’t been to New York in like a year: I need to get to Top Man. Fuck $15 dollar shipping.
1. Seems like a lot of typographers are in Vienna? 2. I wish I could tell if I liked Arabic scripts, but it all looks the same to me.
We're in the lab

Telephone: A Commentary? →
I don’t know if this really explains anything at all. Besides, it’s just a Gaga video. She isn’t poet laureate: she’s a crazed pop star that is probably bizarre for the sake of being bizarre.
Beyoncé is officially off the deep end. damon-king: My eyes were glued to the screen for all 9 minutes
I wish I could say all this to her
Ms. Johnson: So, last class we had filled out those papers...
Me: No, last class we FILLED OUT those papers. Stop using the pluperfect unnecessarily, it doesn't make you sound smarter. You sound like fucking Bon Qui Qui.
Ms. Johnson: Zack, you are so, oh, how do you say "mal poli"? Je m'en souviens pas !
Me: "Impolite." Stop pretending to forget the English word for things. I'd buy it if you actually spoke French fluently. You're a sham.
Ms. Johnson: You see, you are so indoctrinated into the current psycho-nationalistic cognitive process that you're forgetting about Freud's first principle of perception. I just read this book about it, oh, who is it by? It's very interesting, really interesting stuff.
Me: GTFO. YOU READ WIKIPEDIA.

ohreallylili: lovelovelovelovelovelove. AWESOME STORY: My mom was in Park City for Sundance and they were showing this documentary. Over the week Banksy graffiti started popping up all over town, and my mom called me and I was like “Shit, my mom is in Banksy’s vicinity!” Sorry that wasn’t actually very exciting…. She did like the doc though.
How many times will I have this conversation in my...
“Yeah, I’m Haitian.” “No, I’m not dark as night.” “Shit I’m not even dark, sorry does it confuse you that the French raped and impregnated their slaves?” “Haiti is a nation of slaves. All the Indians were killed.” “No, I mean every black person in Haiti was shipped there.” “No, my dad doesn’t practice voodoo,...
