I really like this sans-serif font by Lauren Topmpson & posted at DaFont.com (http://www.dafont.com/font.php?file=lt_oksana). I'm a fan of these sorts of 'modern' fonts with a clean art deco feel. The only character that doesn't wow me is the 's', which looks like an italic face throughout. But the thoroughness of Lauren's work & her generosity with the font are wonderful.

‘Limit gadgets to take one photograph per day’

‘Limit gadgets to take one photograph per day’ | Moving Pictures | Scoop.it
Photojournalist calls for all digital devices to be limited to taking one photograph a day, forcing us to think more about the pictures we take.

A wonderful idea that will go nowhere (and maybe shouldn't−I mean, who'd enforce it?). But bad photos, like bad money, push out good photos (like good money).

BTW: I'd say the same thing for laptop music studios: only one home-mix per month posted on iTunes.

Eight-odd years ago Walter Benjamin saw the end of the individual artist as an inevitable outcome of (mechanical) recording and reproductive technology (http://www.ejumpcut.org/archive/onlinessays/JC15folder/WalterBenjamin.html). He saw it as a good thing, in so far as it ended the elitist (and capitalist) tyrrany of individual wealth and that individual's reliance on state coersion to retain his or her wealth−under the guises of artistic merit or freedom.

Now that digital technology allows anyone to claim to be a photographer, a graphic artist, a web designer, an essayist... I wonder of Benjamin would be so pleased that his own ideas have been spliced, diced, tossed, and repackaged by others.

Like me. Maybe Scoop.it! should limit users to one post a day too.

Red Sox & Fenway: 100 Years Of Fabulous And Frustration

Red Sox & Fenway: 100 Years Of Fabulous And Frustration | Moving Pictures | Scoop.it

Lovely montage of 100 years of Sawx' Fans. My Father-Son memory was seeing The Green Monster with my dad & brother in 1978. Though I grew up in Dallas & already saw some Tx Rangers' games, that one remains my 'first' ballgame!

Fluid Pigment Series by Thomas-R...

Saw this collection on Tumblr yesterday. (http://arpeggia.tumblr.com/post/25861233996)

Though I've seen more interesting reusing of fine art, Thomas-R's thick spilled paint of thick and vibrant colors have a playful rebelliousness that really grabbed me.

WATCH: It’s total ‘Battles...'

WATCH: It’s total ‘Battles...' | Moving Pictures | Scoop.it

Kyle Smith of The New York Post: "All I expected out of “Battleship” was a stupid action movie. It’s more than that, though: It’s also a stupid comedy and a stupid sci-fi yarn. It makes “Top Gun” look like the work of Orson Welles."

Nay, the film is so inept that it can't even be bad enough to revert to good fun. I won't tell you all of the grade-school level inconsistencies of plot or relationships, nor go into any of the details save this one (Spoiler Alert!): the last two-thirds of the movie concerns a satellite that was blown up in the first third of the movie.

What hurts is that Battleship has some pretty fun and decently tense moments about it−a couple of which actually have a direct relation to the board game. But director Peter Berg couldn't keep his eye on the ball any better than his aliens can.

They, by the way, come out as the more humane species in this codpiece because it is hinted time-and-again that they fear weapons, not people−just before people blow them up. What enticed the aliens to hunt out weapons first, and only occasionaly (but sadistically) hunt down people, is never explained. Alright, I admit it: I thought we might be heading toward a The Day The Earth Stood Still moment. Boy did I feel dumb when the world was saved and we were none the wiser.

And whoever cast Liam Neeson as the Admiral did the film a real disservice. He is onscreen for 10-12 minutes, and does more acting and provides more cinematic charisma than anyone else can muster over the next 2 hours. He just makes the rest of it feel that much shallower.

I left wondering what was going on over at The Avengers franchise.
