Two Awesome Things

October 2nd, 2007 · 3 Comments

I’m not properly back just yet, but since I might forget, two worthwhile things:

(1) If you haven’t seen the show Dexter yet, watch the show Dexter. Worth it for the opening sequence alone.

(2) Even if you think a documentary about a typeface sounds like something preposterous The Onion made up to lampoon the proliferation of documentaries, go see Helvetica if it’s playing anywhere near you. I actually left this thinking: “I want to learn more about fonts!”

    Dexter is good? I was part of a focus group for it and was bored silly when I wasn’t cringing at the dialogue.

    It finds its legs a few episodes in, though the dialogue does often leave something to be desired. It’s no “Wire,” but I think it’s worth a look.

    I love the show so much I named my new pug after the title character.
