Three Deathly Treats

Three Deathly Treats

Death Note: Just As PlannedI got a great Halloween treat from an amusing IKOT jeepney ride last night. The driver was playing eerie horror ride music and sound effects. It might have been the radio; it might have been his twisted humor. It wasn’t particularly scary, just amusing. But it makes for a cool, “makeshift” horror ride if you’re looking for some “cheap” fun: perhaps with a friend that gets scared easily! No, I wasn’t creeped out by commuting around UP at such an ungodly occasion, with hardly anyone out on the road then.

Anyway. Take a look at the Typobituaries by Daniel Mall, a list of typefaces that are dead to the stylish graphic designer world. I don’t think Impact is as awful, although I do agree that Brushscript and Mistral as well as their cousins are overused. Of course, Comic Sans MS is there.

Finally: the pic in this post is a little Photoshopped thing featuring Yagami Light (Raito) of Death Note and, uh, his live-action movie counterpart. Kidding. Some notes:

  • I hate it when Light has those eyes. Too obvious.
  • Yes, I’m still hooked on Death Note. I intendhave to finish the manga. Soon.
  • I knew those headset shots would be useful for something. Very prophetic: In a certain Death Note personality test, Phillip got Light. See?
  • In the personality quiz, I got L, Light’s arch-nemesis. Sugoi!

  1. I’ve seen parts of the live action movie, and I just want to say he didn’t look the part. The actor who played L, however did a good job.

    Arrrgh… I have to finish the manga too.. if I can only read it continuously then I wouldn’t have to repeat reading some sections…

  2. Nice to hear from another Death Note fan! Yeah, from the moment I saw a movie publicity image that was the first thing that came to my mind, that he didn’t look like Light! He does look like Harry Potter in some angles, though, that’s what I also thought!

    I want to finish the manga before I move to the small- and big-screen versions :D
