A font of my own.

Behold the beginnings of an exciting new project! I should’ve done this ages ago, but I’ve finally started working on my first font. Which I’ll make available on the blog, free to download, very soon. After Oppikoppi of course. But still, very soon! The raw characters need some editing and refining, but getting digital is actually super easy. Watch this space!

Beetle juice.

Quote by P. G. Wodehouse.

We all tend to think we’re drinking from the overflowing cup of life Saturday night. It’s only Sunday morning that you see the beetle… My advice is, shut your eyes, tip the cup, don’t chew, just swallow – you could probably do with the protein.

Passing through or moving in?

A handy guide crammed full of top tips and quite interesting nothings such as:

  • Bat Country gained independence in the late 1950’s – it’s highest tourist figures were recorded in the following two decades.
  • Upon arrival each visitor is greeted by a vague sense of familiarity.
  • Although all the locals are lunatics, they’re very hospitable and incredibly creative.
  • The national animal of Bat Country, is not a bat as one would assume, but rather a white rabbit.
  • Weather is known to switch between extremes very quickly and without warning,
  • Jim Morrison teaches a popular cooking class on Tuesdays.
  • Tom Waitts and Nick Cave collaborated on the country’s anthem.
  • Does not perform well at international team sport events.
  • It is common place for doctors to prescribe books and albums instead of/in conjunction with pharmaceutics.

… and many other useful bits of information, sure to improve your trip through fantasy, fear and loathing.

Inspired by the life of Hunter Thompson and the work of Ralph Steadman, who was brave enough to illustrate Hunter’s insanity.

Love like yoghurt.

I just adore this quote by Jarod Kintz! Follow him on Twitter or have a look at his Facebook page if you would like to investigate for yourself. The man is a bit of an enigma… the interwebs seems to be crawling with his quotes, and yet there’s no trace of factual information about him to be found. And I use the word ‘factual’ very lightly, even Wikipedia is stumped. Who ever he may be, he seems to know me very well… ^_^

He also authored three definitions on Urban Dictionary which I thoroughly enjoy:

Sexistentialism: A philosophy that proposes that a person should live for the moment, because when you die, you’re screwed. A big proponent of this was Sartre, Kama Sartre.

The Mythical Mr. Boo: A man so elusive, so mysterious, that nobody’s 100 percent sure he even exists. And although there are sceptics out there, they can’t prove that he doesn’t exist. One thing’s for sure, he has a reputation of a mystic, urban guru.

The Mythical Mr. Boo is intergenerational. If you are what you wear, he is his own grandma.

The Mythical Mr. Boo is like a fog that creeps about your window while you are fornicating with your wife. And just like fog, if the police ever catch him, he’ll be cleared by morning.

Ourafoura: An entity that hovers over the subconscious like a fog, yet avoids fields and pastures like cows avoid escalators. His wisdom is exceeded only by the vagueness of his memory. He is fond of saying many things, some of which are more cryptic than others. Orafoura, aside from being an entity, can also be described as a spontaneous feeling, like making a chicken suit from scratch, and not making it out of yellow feathers, but out of scrambled eggs. One of his favorite sayings is, “You must be the perspiration when all the world is deodorant.” But that’s just all talk, because Orafoura has no sweat glands.

I am a presence that fills up a room, like the laughter that comes from deep within a child who only has one lung.
