Unexpected #202, September 1980, cover by Luis Domiguez

Happy Easter!

(via newsweek)

Now that baseball season has begun, we’ll be watching a lot of MLB Network. Once again, I’ll be spending a lot of time hating their typography.

I don’t know the name of the typeface all over the above chart, but I hate so many things about it.

  1. Don’t set type in all caps or small caps. So very hard to read.
  2. Don’t set type with fake small caps. You can tell because the stroke width of the caps and “lower case” is not the same. It’s just caps reduced to a percentage. Very ugly.
  3. The kerning on this typeface (probably a display font, never intended for charts and tables) is horrible. “Sandoval” looks like “SANDOV AL” and “Batista” looks like “BA TIST A.” 

That font is hard to read, it’s ugly, and it’s kerned like it’s 1977. I’ll be suffering all throughout the baseball season, and I wanted to share some of my pain with you.

Just because Wonder Woman doesn’t wear green doesn’t mean she can’t celebrate!


I’m sorry, is that mushy? Well, you know what they say. Veronica Mars, she’s a marshmallow.

Old School. Neptune memories.

I am SO sick of these lists of movies to see “before you die,” which to be honest, is the way I plan to do most things. Therefore, I give you the list of movies you can see only AFTER you die, which means I hope you never ever see them ever not even once and no commercials.

Batman and Robin
Forgetting Sarah Marshall
The Matrix Revolutions
Six String Samurai
The Spirit
Van Helsing
Your Highness
