Gut Woch

Remember when electronic devices had that little reset button? You had to use a paper clip or something to get to it, and sometimes you had to hold the button down for a few seconds. Sometimes it made a scary beeping noise. If the device had an LED screen, all the images in the screen would turn on, which was kind of cool to look at.

New Typeface from Maniackers Design

Maniackers Design has released what looks to be a legible, perhaps even useful, typeface. I think it's part of a series of loosely related typefaces.

『096MKSD - Synapse - Alphabet』はMKSDスタンダードフォントシリーズの第3弾として制作。某建築設計事務所のロゴタイプデザインを進めていく中で派生したアイデアにヒントを得てフォント化しました。本文用、見出し用、ロゴタイプにも対応したオールマイティー&スタイリッシュな使いやすいフォントです。字間は比較的狭く設定しました。MKSDスタンダードフォントシリーズ第1弾は『071MKSD』、第2弾は『078MKSD』。(2006.10.10 Up Date)

On a sidenote, Japanese graphic design is where it's at. After you've explored the MKDS website, I highly recommend a thorough perusal of their links page. It probably won't take very long for you to notice that I've cribbed some graphics from a few of these websites. Most of the homepages are in Japanese with English trim, but navigation is more often intuitive than hunt-and-peck.

A gut moed, un a gut yor.

I live here.

Over the past several weeks, I've noticed an increased police presence in the neighborhood. Evidently, there's been a rash of violence in these here parts. I'll save the race relations discussion for another time. Right now, I'd like to direct your attention toward a recent article on Shmais, where you can see some photos of my block. I know you're all dying to see what a slum I live in, so here's a shot I took over the summer.
