It’s in menus, wedding invitations, shop signs church flyers and heavens, even in résumés. Since becoming a system font in Microsoft Office ’97, Papyrus, a cheesy calligraphic font inspired by Egyptian writing has been a blight in the visual landscape. Along with the reviled Comic Sans, Papyrus was for desktop publishing dabblers a casual alternative from the serious sans serif and serif fonts. It’s the stand-in font to convey “primitive,” “natural” or “ancient.”
Since 1982, Papyrus has made professional graphic designers cringe—especially when used with effects like drop shadows (yuck) or 3D embossing (gross). So loathed is the font created by American illustrator Chris Costello that several dedicated design blogs have emerged to lampoon it. For font sophisticates, the only good use of Papyrus is as a punchline for jokes, and arguably the most epic Papyrus parody was was aired this weekend, on Saturday Night Live.
Playing a brooding insomniac haunted by the memory of seeing Papyrus in James Cameron’s blockbuster film Avatar, Ryan Gosling brilliantly mirrors the levels of angst font sophisticates feel when they see Papyrus in the wild.
oh man, we were going on about this one yesterday in the designers slack channel at work… fucking awesome…
papyrus!!! it wasn’t enough…
Today, the world witnessed Tim Cook as a talking alien emoji, Craig Federighi as a clucking chicken emoji, and Jony Ive as smiling poo emoji. This new bit of AR magic is called Animoji, and it’s more than a little unsettling.
jony ive as an animated poo emoji? now that’s some silly shit right there, mang.
A Corgi And Chicken Square Off In The Least Brutal Fight You’ll Ever See
dunno why, but i got a chuckle from this one…
PS. corgi’s are fucking awesome.
my sister texted me some silly selfie pic, so i did a quick search and sent one back… which probably wasn’t too smart, since now i have both my sisters hitting me with funny selfie pics.
Have you ever shoved a
<marquee>tag? Pixar gets all the accolades today, but in the 90s this was a serious feat of computer animation. By combining these two tags, you were a trailblazer. A person capable of great innovation. A human being that all other human beings could aspire to.
You were a web developer in the 1990s.
With that status, you knew you were hot shit. And you brought with you a score of the most fearsome technological innovations, the likes of which we haven’t come close to replicating ever since.
Put down the jQuery, step away from the non-relational database: we have more important things to talk about.
1×1.gif should have won a fucking Grammy. Or a Pulitzer. Or Most Improved, Third Grade Gym Class or something. It’s the most important achievement in computer science since the linked list. It’s not the future we deserved, but it’s the future we needed (until the box model fucked it all up).
oh man, this one brought back memories..!
the good ol’ days, right?
just saw this on twitter and couldn’t help but chuckle…
great comeback, kid!
dunno why, but i got a chuckle when i saw this just now…
probably because there’s quite a bit of “fantasy v. reality” going on here, y’know?
on the flipside, if i think about it for more than 5.34 seconds, i’m not sure whether to laugh or cry now…
To break things down:
Yeah, we don’t know either.

Winnie the Pooh has been blacked out from Chinese social media in the lead-up to the country’s 19th Communist Party Congress.
No official explanation was given, but according to Financial Times, the crackdown may be related to past comparisons of the physical appearance of President Xi Jinping to the fictional bear. One observer said “talking about the president” appeared to be among activities deemed sensitive ahead of the upcoming party congress, when leadership renewal is expected.
dunno why, but i thought this was both kinda funny and ludicrous… i mean… seriously?!

PYONGYANG—Hailing it as a significant step forward for their ballistic weapons program just hours after suffering a failed missile launch, North Korean leaders announced Monday they had successfully detonated a nuclear scientist.
“It was with great satisfaction this morning that I witnessed the detonation of a 156-pound nuclear scientist,” Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un said in a recorded statement, which appears to corroborate U.S. intelligence reports that a 0.7-magnitude tremor and large explosion had been detected at a bunker outside the city of Kusong at 9:42 a.m. local time, marking the nation’s first detonation of a major scientist since the days following a catastrophic rocket malfunction in 2012.
“With this glorious achievement, our laboratories have begun to move much faster toward completing our goal of building an indomitable nuclear arsenal capable of annihilating all cowardly Western aggressors. We are prepared to detonate multiple scientists every month as a demonstration of our might and determination.” Intelligence analysts have reportedly warned top American officials to take Kim at his word, noting that the North Korean regime has already built up a stockpile of nuclear scientists’ family members it is prepared to detonate at a moment’s notice.
is it wrong that i got a chuckle from this?
PS. gotta luv the onion.
Honest Trailers – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story
man, i love these honest trailers and have been looking forward to seeing what they came up with for Rogue One… good stuff! though that last bit with “Suicide Squad – An Unnecessary Star Wars Story” was a bit harsh… i mean… damn.
Man Down, a war thriller with Shia LaBeouf, grossed just £7 ($8.70) when it premiered in a single U.K. theater over the weekend, according to ComScore. That’s the equivalent of selling a single ticket, given that the U.K. Cinema Association puts the average movie admission cost in the country at £7.21.
“Poor Shia,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at ComScore. “That opening could be in the Guinness World Records or something.”
The film played in one location, Reel Cinema in Burnley. It was simultaneously released digitally on demand, making the theatrical release something of an afterthought. It launches on DVD and Blu-ray next month, according to the Guardian.
that really might be a new record or something.
WASHINGTON—Saying that being confined in such a volatile environment was known to have devastating psychological repercussions, FBI officials reported Wednesday that Ohio man Patrick Kinsey had apparently become radicalized during his 18 years spent inside of the U.S. Congress.
“We’ve uncovered evidence that leads us to believe this elected official became heavily influenced by hardline extremists and religious fanatics during his time serving in the country’s legislative branch,” said FBI spokesperson Irene Jessup, adding that the representative appeared to have fallen in with a powerful fundamentalist faction during his first days in the congressional chamber and quickly adopted their strict interpretation of a fringe ideology.
“While he may have arrived as a seemingly ordinary moderate, we believe he’s been completely indoctrinated in this rigid mindset and is currently recruiting others to join him and take up radical causes. At this time, his worldview has become so narrowed that he responds to any outside beliefs with apocalyptic rhetoric and by making grandiose threats.”
Jessup further revealed that it was clear the political extremist was fully intent on bringing about the total destruction of the U.S. government.
