Love it. Now we need a Type the Ocean with waterfront views.

We can do without: Type the Garbage, Type the Alley, Type the Crackhouses...

Well, just for the hell of it, I coded up a little Flash app that lets you type with this font set here: typethesky. You need to click once on the page to activate it. Sorry, no word wrap. Best I could do in half an hour.
