A few font bits for your your lunchtimesuck:
Are you into fonts? I mean, are you really into fonts? Do you assign them personalities based on your experiences with them? Then check out Extensis’ amusingly creepy (or is it creepily amusing?) Typecaster videos that cast real people acting like fonts mixing in a singles bar.
I myself have an ongoing blood feud with Franklin Gothic. Back in the ’90s I would flee from the sight of Copperplate Gothic. Maybe I just have a problem with Gothics.
Know the name of a font, but not its look, or vice versa? Identifont will find it for you in a matter of seconds.
Lastly, I’m thinking of blowing $9 to have Fontifier make a font out of my handwriting. I don’t know what I’ll ever use it for, but it does fascinate me in a cyborgy kind of way.
