Here’s an amusing story that will warm everyone’s heart:

I was working in my studio designing pipe bombs when I recalled my first library card that my dad took me to get when I was five years old. I could even picture the type-face that my name was written in, which wasn’t too hard to find: it was IBM “Orator” which was available on Selectric typewriters that used interchangeable balls. I found out that it was even the font that Stanley Kubrick chose for the computer displays in “2001: A Space Odyssey.”

So I look for a download of it and I end up buying a font called “64-SRC Regular” for $49, but after I install it I realize it’s “based on” Orator but not the same. Dammit! So I look again and I find “Orator Std” for $35 and I download that, but when I try to install it the Font Manager on my computer gives me a warning about duplicate fonts.

I just spent $84 nonrefundable bucks on a fucking font I already owned.

Here’s a sample sheet of the IBM Selectric “Orator” type face produced by an actual typewriter.

This will help you to better visualize my exciting story.

Here’s some screens from “2001.” Wait! That’s not Orator! It’s close but not the same!

Turns out the font in the movie is 64-SRC Regular. Or vice versa, I dunno. They’re the same though.

I’m pretty sure no one is ever going to read any of this so I’m going to go back to my design work because it’s due tomorrow.

But first, here’s another “2001” frame, a very Kubrick symmetrical composition. The computer screens were actually 35mm slides back projected onto frosted glass on the sets, because computer graphic displays like this didn’t even exist at the time. The animated graphics were traditional animated artwork projected from 16mm film.

Way too many people are reading too much into Canada’s empty tweet against Saudi Arabia. Canada still sells them weapons and don’t intend on stopping. Just like they have no intention on questioning why Saudi Arabia is on the UN Women’s Rights Commission.

The real question is why MBS threw a temper tantrum when he knows this is all just troll concerns

On the positive side, it was only 104 here today. It was supposed to be 111, but the smoke reflected back a bit of the heat.

We’re in Eastern Washington. We don’t have a local fire, but they are all around us.

sometimes I get a headache from the drink, and have to drink even more to power through

OK, I have not been keeping up on football at all. Which is my only excuse for finally realizing that I should stop looking for Richard Sherman on the field.

This is gonna end up as one of those Wile Coyote things, right? Trump is gonna hide in the rocket to escape from Mueller, then Mueller is going to be the one who lights the fuse and shoots him into space.

Is there any thing sadder than a guy wearing sandals? When I was nine I spent a summer wearing sandals because my mom bought them for me and I didn’t have a choice, but I haven’t worn a pair since.

What’s that you say? You enjoy wearing sandals? Well don’t let my personal opinion stop you, you sad sack of shit.

I wear sandals on the beach, in the shower at a public place and In my house for support. How do you not wear sandals?

Interesting.

You think Dok is at the 49er game? Throwing bags of piss and shining laser lights at the Cowboys players bench.

If you replace “shining” with “shooting,” then most definitely.

I mean, be a shame to let perfectly good bags of piss go to waste…

He was a dishonest fuck (far worse in real life than the series) who abused women and was generally a miserable SOB, so I’ve gotta say Steelers.

yeah, I gathered HBO took some liberties on the “lovable rogue” angle.

So who the hell else here is covered in a haze of yellow smoke? And not the fun kind.

Ours is more grey. Couldn’t see the high rises downtown today and I live very close.

The haze here is more like the color of a cheap ’70s sci-fi, b-movie and smells like ozone.

Weird red hazy sunset in L.A. at the beach today, and there is nothing but ocean out there. Smoke is coming from somewhere. I assumed it was Japan but maybe it’s closer.

Beastmode Ate My Baby

Waste from Fukushima catching the ocean on fire. At this point we just need to accept the inevitable giant lizard rising out of the depths to curbstomp our coastal cities.

litre_cola

It is ok the earth is flat it will take the monster a long time to walk around.

And by then Space Force will be operational and we’ll all be saved. And then have cake.

It was pretty weird here this afternoon. Didn’t smell like smoke, but odd “clouds”.
