My dad loves The NY Mets. Anyone know of a local Butoh group that does Mets related work?

Other than that I'm on board.

While I agree with Jess Draplin that America is fucked (design and/or otherwise) it's all about historical context. Sixty years on we look back lovingly at googie signage, plastic key chains, hand drawn type, and mid century design. I am sure that at the time most of it was looked at with derision as derivitive, copycat garbage. The entrepreneurs that built the motel, and bought the signage were all to happy to ride the wave of popular trends of the time, not for any high minded design ethic, but simply because it was the accepted design motif for motel design and American road culture. For all of Jess' passion about design integrity, the Russian family that bought the motel are doing the exact same thing. They couldn't give a shit about design, typefaces, and preserving American roadside culture. That sign is old fashioned. Tearing it down and replacing it with that orange horror is merely putting their stamp on the American dream. Unfortunately, sixty years hence someone will be passionate about Blippo, gradients, and those elegantly, spare bird drawings.

Other than that I totally agree with the sentiment. We are fucked.

I wish that when The Gap got all ascared by the misguided fury of the design class over their new logo, that they unveiled a newer and more evil version using Comic Sans.

Because I like to see people blow up real good.

I think the goal is to lose 10 lbs. And to take a serious inventory of rage issues.
