That was actually pretty nice. I wasn't expecting that.

The writing is richer than I remember. "And Marsellus Wallace don't like to be fucked by anybody except Mrs. Wallace." Ouch!

Normally, both your asses would be dead as blackletter, but you happen to pull this shit while I'm in a transitional period of creating Baskerville so I don't wanna kill you, I wanna help you. But I can't give you this font, it don't belong to me. Besides, I've already been through too much shit this morning over this typeface to hand it over to your dumb ass.

Saw this on Boing Boing this morning. It was the first post to that site in ages that actually make me glad I have it in my feed.

Oh, and, "Check out the big brain on Brett!"

And Marsellus Wallace don't like to be fucked by anybody except Mrs. Wallace.
So it's safe to assume he didn't like what happened later in the movie.

Subtle foreshadowing.

This isn't acting. This is typesetting.

That was about a hundred times better than anything I was expecting. Thanks!

Hm. I guess this will have to wait until I'm on a faster computer. It completely slows down this one.

Cool typeface.

Indeed. Awesome work.

Awful awful stunningly overrated movie.

Bitch, be cool.

I'm trying, Ringo. I'm trying real hard to be the shepherd.

SCAD graduate. I am married to a SCAD graduate. I forgot to mail a bill once. One morning I woke up to a 6ft X 8ft calender painted day-glow orange on the bedroom wall with clip boards tacked up like giant sticky notes of what is due when. SCAD. It may be an art college but they sure are "doers."

I *heart* motion graphics!

I really wanted to see what happened when those hard, pipe-hittin' n*****s turned up and went to work with a blowtorch and pliers.

That was great. I'd love to see more of the same.

Check out the big serifs on Jarratt!

This is marvelous. It reminds me of the presentation that was done with a Lessig talk - http://randomfoo.net/oscon/2002/lessig/


This type of presentation that is visual and matching the audio is powerful - if there is a name for this concept and learning tool, I would love to know it.

My favourite scene!

"Do they speak English in WHAT?!"

I have to learn how to do this.

Reading the comments on the site, this is a simplified student "take-off" on this piece.

I like them both, but the original is much more impressive graphically. I like the pulp fiction dialog much more than whatever the original is quoting.

I'd be interested to know what tools are used for this kind of thing too.
