Free fonts from the 90s!
A couple decades ago -- 1996, to be exact -- I tried to design some fonts. I've finally gotten around to recovering them and converting them to modern font formats. So for the enjoyment or abuse of your next print or onscreen project, here are some totally free typeface downloads.

Super Whippy
The band I'm in - Cultural Amnesia - have just released an album of instrumentals called Super Whippy. Stylistically all over the place - from pseudo-movie-music to progtronica to electronica with all sorts of peculiar stop-offs on the way. There's also a video for one of the tracks: Prod Butt Prod.

Two Asians talk about all of this shit.
Race Invaders is a podcast hosted by myself and my friend Tim Yang, in which we discuss social justice, politics, culture, and probably more geek shit than is necessary, but we like it.

Scream into The Void
There's something cathartic about firing off a moany tweet or a frustrated status update, but who wants to be that person? The Void is a nocial media tool that spares your dignity while providing that lovely feeling of release. Before long your post will literally fade away without contributing to the net negativity of the universe.

Travels With Brindle

xn--qeiaa.ws: Emoji Domain Registration
Domains can be more than just letters and numbers. Most people have no idea they can just type a bunch of hearts in their address bar and go to a domain... and yet, it works!

Jingle Rock Bell music video
I figured it might be nice if there were a video for this holiday classic, and thought maybe you'd think so too.

F_ract_l
I've been exploring and creating a lot of flame fractals recently - they seem to provide an endless universe of fantastic shapes and patterns. So I've started putting them all on a Tumblr. They make great desktop backgrounds, anyway.
