Sans Serif Superman

Oh, I'm back. All-that-research-project-I-gotta-finish-be-damned.

With a Typog-nerd snippet from McSweeney's:
Guess the fuck what, Picasso. We don't all have seventy-three weights of stick-up-my-ass Helvetica sitting on our seventeen-inch MacBook Pros. Sorry the entire world can't all be done in stark Eurotrash Swiss type. Sorry some people like to have fun. Sorry I'm standing in the way of your minimalist Bauhaus-esque fascist snoozefest.
Yeah, you know I'm that girl. On a cheap-ass Compaq-Whatever with Picasso stickers, though.

It's a great read, an imagined monologue of Comic Sans.

Hiiii I read your comment on tavi's blog about hole and thought - you might find my post useful. I am such a huge hole fan so I collected all the official music videos I could find back in March and put them all in one post. You can find it here -
