I 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!
