Two Pieces of Typographic Joy
It’s been entirely too long since I posted cool typography links here on the site, so here are two.
The Big Caption is a companion site to The Big Picture. They take whatever the latest “Big Picture” photos are, and add great (and often hilarious) captions to the image. There are some running themes throughout it’s so far short run, such as “Haters Gonna Hate” and “Hipsters Start Your Photocopiers”. All in all a great site that’s fun to look at. My favorite though is probably the most famous so far, “Fuck you, flowers”. Did I post that one before? I can’t remember. Well it’s awesome. LINK »
Music Philosophy is a link I found via my favorite music site, Aurgasm. They take music lyric quotes and make awesome poster-style images out of them. Here’s a clip from one about The Beatles from “We Can Work It Out”. Could you tell? Check out their site, it’s colorful and fun. LINK »
Finally, one piece of business before I wrap up this post. Does anyone actually read these posts? Click on the links? Enjoy what I’m posting? The blog segment has fallen by the wayside lately, and while I do it for my own enjoyment I’m curious if people enjoy it, miss it when it’s not here, etc. Even if you aren’t a frequent commenter on the site, drop me a line via a comment or however else you feel like and let me know if you read these posts. Or conversely, post and let me know if you don’t, though in a bit of a Catch-22 if you don’t you probably won’t read this to see that.
