A Sunday Dilemna
Posted at 07:00 AM


We are at odds for this upcoming Sunday night. A dilemna.

Willy Vlautin of Richmond Fontaine is reading selections from his novel The Motel Life at Powell’s. 7:30pm. Not missing this one.

And then down the street at the Hollywood theater, that Helvetica documentary is airing at 8pm. Damn.

Maybe I could squeeze both in?

A clip from the Helvetica documentary with Wim Crouwel.

The honorable Jon Baugh, Minneapolis, Minn., father, husband, designer, freedom fighter and bullseye magician writes us a nice letter, telling us great things and offers up a “Real Good” link:

Il Lee and some Ballpoint Abstractions. All that, with a ball point pen, man!

Just because these are so good: Nate Beaty’s illustrations for Willy’s book, and other Richmond Fontaine settings.

Bravo: David Lynch on product placement in movies.

Better than the “Big Dig”: Almighty Boston. We sure to click on “work” and dig on the Swiss Army Knife action. Pretty good.

A kid Lovejoy knows, that we shot the shit with on Alberta last night, amongst the chaos of the street fair that goes down the last Thursday of the month. Wild and awesome.

There is One Comment

Man, are you kidding? No decision at all, fuck the Helvetica movie off, you can watch it any time later. Bunch of goddamn windbag grad-school dorks with a hardon for a played-out, used-to-death typeface. Go see Willy, the guy is living gold and you’re a lucky sonofabitch to have him in your backyard. I’d kill to go hear that reading.

Those ballpoint pieces and the illustrations for RF are tits, great links. Here’s one to ponder (from Vanessa), radical Russian decorated delectables. Whoa.
