And most of the political stuff is depressing (in a "laughing our way to the grave" kind of way). Time to either stop the meds, get on the meds, or increase the dosage, people. And personally the "we're the victim here" persona of the Tea Party and their nominal leaders/stars is growing exceptionally tiring (and borderline paranoidal).
But to the awesome link.
As proof that there is a God and it loves us, unconditionally, the good people over at Monotype are releasing back issues of U&lc (Upper and Lower Case) as scanned PDFs (hey, this magazine predates the computer revolution, so no electric files are available, at least for the first twenty years of it's publication). There are links to the volumes on their blog. If you're an oldie like me, you remember U&lc. If not, and you love type, go and read. They are a mix of "what's happening in type", advertisement for monotype fonts, and a master's course in visual design (for both application and history).
Those of you who know just had a geekgasm. The rest of you are probably just scratching your heads.
