Find Me On:
I didn’t even know there was a real Steve Winwood until about a year ago.
i usually just answer “the internet” and leave it at that.
Eighth grade me used to bawl whenever this song played. IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN.
This is all I’ve got. It’s weird not being able to explain how I feel to real-life people, because so few understand it. I’m glad I’ve been able to read this for all these years. There really aren’t any blogs out there like this, that somehow remain troll-free (or have the best trolls). Most everywhere has at least a few assholes, but somehow not here.
thanks, guys, for not being assholes.
I miss the days when upvotes went into the hundreds (unless everyone was just upvoting old posts this week?). But yes, the Nicholas Sparks article is wonderful.
I just got back from grabbing a beer with lovely Monsters. It felt a lot like a wake. Now I am stuck at work to wallow alone.
I am glad we still have Kelly’s post, because I need to find the perfect gif, stat.
This is the first week I’ve ever wished it wasn’t Friday.
Maybe it’ll turn into Ground Hogs day and we can have videogum forever!
How many people?
Randolph/Halsted is a foodie mecca.
the Psych announcement bummed me out so much yesterday! 5 more episodes, WHAT THE HELL. I am just going to be crying all the time now.
I accidentally just took a 2-hour lunch, so something tells me I can’t sneak out tomorrow. I’ll be there in spirit!
Or you can go to lunch in the west loop and maybe I can say hi.
I’ll be your friend! I am a good friend (Flanny can vouch).
When I was 13-14 I was part of this awesome Harry Potter message board. It actually devolved into talking about everything, because this was during the huge gap between books 3/4. We got kicked off the board when the new book came out and migrated to about 3 other places (at one point there was a hostile takeover of a Spanish Language board). After that it sort of fizzled. I’m still sad about that, that I didn’t keep track of all those awesome people. It was this weird magic moment that happened and then just ended. I keep going back to that with what’s happening now. It’s really hitting me.
yay! I am actually doing actual work right now, but I’m going to read this tonight!
I went to lunch for 2 hours and missed this! Damnit. It was an ok lunch, but I did have a really good gin cocktail.
In life, I am doing the dating thing. And it’s exhausting. How do people go on so many first dates and put effort into online profiles? It’s painful, but also I like one of the dudes. So maybe that will work out? Or maybe it will be terrifying.
That girl became a vegetarian soon after.
Yes! we need to start figuring out who wants to do what.
The biggest prank will be that he actually has 4 wives and 30 kids.
I noticed in all of the re-linked articles that the videogum original videos are gone.
Will the upvotes be gone on Monday? Are we all going to die?
This is almost as good as the Muse fan.
I did notice that my reply was all of a sudden it’s own comment. WHAT JERKS.
ANUSTART- I had a friend in college who had the entire adobe font library on a CD. It was passed around the studio quite a few times. The benefits of going to design school.
Aww, I’m flattered you think I’m the cornerstone of Chicago, because there are so many Chicago monsters! And I have not met most of them, but I hear they are great.
I’m going to miss this site like woah.
Interesting, because usually sans-serif is reserved for headers. Serif is more readable in smaller type and as paragraphs. Though for a resume you can usually get away with all sans-serif, because you don’t usually write paragraphs (though the type is generally small).
For my thesis I did a combo avenir/arno.
For sans I like frutiger, gill sans, and univers
Serif I like baskerville for classic, goudy for a little more modern.
I KNOW. Where is that post?
