Jonathan Richman is a one of a kind. I recently revisited his country dip Jonathan Goes Country (1990) and it holds up, especially “Since She Started to Ride”.

This by the way would make a great alternate cover for Angle of Repose...
Nice to see Public School getting loved by all these fancy people. Also, I can’t think about Angle of Repose without getting a lump in my throat.
Julia Yu, a developer here at Newsweek/Daily Beast, created this AMAZING sci-fi children’s book inspired by a College Humor post, a Reddit thread, the movie Dune, and Goodnight Moon.
Goodnight Dune was written and illustrated after I saw this article for Five Sci-Fi Children’s Books on College Humor, linked from a Reddit post which asked for a more fleshed out version of the book. While the original parody art was amazing I decided to stick closer to the original Goodnight Moon art style, using some stylistic elements from the David Lynch movie version of Dune.
Though, please, no Goodnight Dune Messiah.
Uncanny. I’ve been planning on re-reading Dune and Goodnight Moon is one of my very favorites.

Zapf Dingbats is one of the more common dingbat typefaces. It was designed by the typographer Hermann Zapf in 1978 and licensed by International Typeface Corporation. Scissors are hand-operated cutting instruments. They consist of a pair of metal blades pivoted so that the sharpened edges slide against each other when the handles (bows) opposite to the pivot are closed. - Wikipedia
Reblogging because you should follow codepoint and for this awesome definition of scissors.
Sometimes when I ask people about the majors they picked in college, I get an answer—regardless of the major—akin to “because it’s like, just so fundamental, you know?” The neuroscientist thinks, the brain, the brain! Everything starts with the brain. The writer thinks, where would we be without language, without the ability to communicate our ideas? The investment banker thinks, money runs the world, and he who commands it shapes the entire planet. The environmentalist thinks, none of this would matter if we didn’t have an earth to live on. The designer thinks, everything is designed and design can solve all the world’s problems.
I like this.
