i've been to all my classes now. this quarter is going to be so... lax... it's hard to adjust to since i spend so long running around like a headless chicken.
they've made the two shittiest mac labs (with the old style g4s) into brand new imac labs. they're pretty sexy. they make the g5 lab look so dirty and old, although i'm sure that's mostly the fault of the disrespectful fuckers at my school drawing on the towers and otherwise abusing them.
this is kinda random, but does anyone know of anything interesting that happened in 1905? i'm supposed to pick something that happened then and design a font around it. if you have any suggestions, throw them at me. i'll give you a copy of the font i make if i choose your suggestion (and if you want it, of course).
i think an einstein inspired font would be really fun (i could make the O have funny hair!) but he mentioned the einstein thing(s) in class, so i don't want to look like a lazy ass and use that.
las vegas on the other hand, could lend itself nicely to some funky atomic era font stylings and might be fun.
This might help...
Sunday, bloody Sunday...
Las Vegas founded
Ayn Rand born (ooh, do something with that!!)
And on March 11th, 1905:
Stanley Cup: Ottawa Silver 7 beat Rat Portage Thisles, 2 games to 1 I don't know if you can do anything with it, but I figured it was a good date...
if i used the russian revolution, i would want to go russian constructivist with it, and i don't know how practical it would be. thus far, the russian revolution is tied with las vegas as far as suggestions from my friends goes.
1905: The first car was reported stolen.
Some other stuff (someone might have posted the same/similar link already):
