In the Neighbourhood Part I

I thought I'd show a few things that are quite close to me. The MacArthur Maze is something I hear about everyday on the traffic report: "traffic is backed up to the foot of the maze". Luckily my commute doesn't have to deal with this mess. It got considerable news about a year ago when a tanker full of fuel crashed and melted one of the on ramps. The news reports like to hype up how bad the traffic would be. Traffic was at its lowest ever because people just did the smart thing and took Bart which is what they should be doing anyways.

I recently have splurged and got a netflix subscription. I have never been a fan of programs that recommend items to you, but the netflix one is pretty good. Without it I would have never found, quite possibly, the greatest documentary ever made: Helvetica. When I saw the title, I immediately added it to my queue without even reading the description. And yes, it is ALL about the font. Not only could every gray-haired Western European interviewed be any relative on my dad's side, but they all understood my idea of aesthetic, which I thought was quite impossible to describe. Anyways. Go see it.
