Whatcha doing tonight?

So, who wants to go with me to a movie about a font?

The Walker Art Center is showing the film Helvetica tonight! It's at 7:30.

Yes, it is an entire movie entirely about the font Helvetica.

I have two tickets. Who wants the second one?

$7.50


*edit*

Since none of y'all here in town are big enough dorks to wanna see this, and hellbob came home, I'm gonna make him go with me. You'll all be super sad when I get home and tell you how awesome it was!

Seriously?
"With the high interest in Gary Hustwit's film Helvetica, which quickly sold out two shows, the Walker has added an additional screening on Friday, June 1 at 7:30 pm. Director Gary Hustwit will not be present at this screening."

I'm sorry, but this just cracks me up. Two sold-out showings of a feature-length documentary about a FONT? Are the interviewees naked? Do they hand out free stuff afterwards? I don't get it. Youse people is weird.

Re: Seriously?
Hee hee. I actually know very little about the movie, but I am a font dork. I'll let you know if there was nakedness when I get home.

Re: Seriously?
There was no nakedness. Actually, there weren't really even any hot guys. It was mostly a bunch of old guys with accents talking about either what they hated or what they loved about the font. I really liked it, but a non-designer type probably wouldn't.
Oh, and the showing I went to was sold out, so that was THREE sold out showings of a doc about a font! hee hee.

This is why they need to invent transporters, dammit!
It looks like I may end up going solo. :(

I often think transporters would be terribly useful.

It was good. I liked it. Hellbob didn't hate it.
It was mostly a lot of old guys with accents talking about why they either hate Helvetica or why they love it.

My inner FontGeek demanded to go with you. Unfortunately for her, a date with my husband rated higher with most of my other 47 personalities. : /
