Has anyone seen The Fall?

Visually, it’s one of the most beautiful movies ever made.

After 5 weeks of attempts, I finally watched Black Swan last night. Its sick and twisted turns still have my brain churning. Highly, highly recommended.

These conceptual posters for the movie delight me with their simplicity, colors, and use of negative space. The last is my favorite.

Helvetica

NERD ALERT.

Today I watched the Helvetica documentary that came out to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the font. The idea of a documentary about a typeface really doesn’t seem like it would tickle most, but I found it so interesting.

The font was designed 50s as a clear, modern typeface and its name is from the Latin name for Switzerland. Today it is still one of the most used fonts in the world. Apparently it’s more in our faces than I previously thought. Here are just a few of the places we can see it:

Fur pie doesn’t sell

Tonight, my favorite coffee shop in town showed one of my favorite movies in its beautiful garden, the best spot in town.

Sitting with a senior couple on my left and my good friends on my right, chuckling in unison at the orgasm part, remind me how special San Luis Obispo is.

It was bittersweet. I loved the night, but I can’t remember choking up so quickly with tears over something so non-emotional on the surface. I think tonight I realized how much I really miss living in Paris–sketching the tiny architectural details and wandering the streets for hours. Just my luck, I helped a lost French family find their way (in French, of course) when I was outside for a moment: a nice touch. I told them that if they were looking for something to do, they were showing ‘Amelie’ just next door. They gave me a funny look and I’m not sure why.

Either way, for one night I was transported into a Amelie’s magic world and my romantic soul was re-awakened.

Where Am I?
