Work still kind of frustrating today.

Who wants to see "Helvetica", the movie, at Regent Square this weekend? Yes, it is actually a documentary about the Helvetica font.

---

Okay, more specifically, I think I am going to try to see the Friday 7pm showing.

Crap, I just realized this conflicts with KGB's (and alex's) game nights. Hmmm. The annoying thing is getting busses late at night back from Regent Square on the weekends. I'd much rather go on Friday.

I'm actually a bit curious about the movie too. Let me know if you go to either of the early Saturday showings--I'd like to join in so long as nothing weird comes up.

I might be interested. I also might be interested in seeing Paprika, though, and maybe two movies in one weekend is one too many.

DANGER is a proof of HELVETICA, but you don't know which one!

Does anyone get killed in a custody battle over the underage letters? Does the font's extreme sensuality lead a devoted husband into adultery and ruin? It's just not a movie unless one or both of those things happen.

Actually I met a guy on Saturday night who saw it in New York. He said it was really good, although he's a graphic designer, which I suspect biases his opinion somewhat...

I can't believe there's a Helvetica: the movie.

Nothing against fonts, just not something I ever expected there to be a movie about.

Maybe I should also be surprised that you've rounded up like 20 people to go see it, but I'm really not.

Hey you, let's go see it. I haven't seen you in a week and no one else is around to laugh at me and tell me that I'm so out of context, which is absolutely terrible.

If the problem with Saturday is the busses, i might could drive (<- not yinzer talk).. parking's not too bad in Regent Square. But then i think i might prefer Friday night, anyhow, since it turns out Paprika's only playing at Harris Theater which is downtown, and that might be better to try on Saturday.
