About a Squirrel

I looooove the latest game posted at Jay Is Games: Swoop to Nuts, in which you play a killingly cute squirrel that collects acorns, which become scarcer as the seasons change. (And just to keep my string of font dorkery going, I'll point out that the game features one of my all-time favorite fonts, Fink Heavy.) I currently have the high score of 231,250 (under my NPL alias, Lunch Boy), and am trying to talk myself into going to bed instead of trying for a higher one. We'll see how that goes.

Given both your aforementioned font dorkery and your overall web dorkery, I'm guessing you must have already seen the Beyond the Typeface video, but if by some chance not... well, um, do.

I have indeed seen that video, and yes, it's awesome. There's also Etched in Stone, which isn't as good as Behind the Typeface, but still has its good bits (mostly on the fake posters).

That, sir, is one fine typeface. I heartily approve.
