Animusic 3

I must promote this project by Animusic - the creators of the best music animations in the world! They have made this Kickstarter project to fund the production of their third video album. I have the two previous ones, and they have blown me away! If you have seen them you know what I mean. Even if you have only seen Pipe Dream you might know what it is about, but you should really see the rest of them. And the new ones are going to be amazing, I'm sure!

In other news, I recently put a bunch of my fonts on (mine are right here). When I put up the first one, I was surprised when 7:12 Serif was downloaded around 25 times a day(!), so I decided to upload some more, and amazingly the font Slice has had up to 800 downloads in one day(!!!). Incredible, overwhelming and humbling!

Well, I'm off to secure my copy of Animusic 3, plus the new CD. Bye.

WTPh and Typoguistics

Today I just have to share this:

Also, I think I am going to make a blog about typography and linguistics, because I could go on and on about that. I think I will call it "typoguistics".

Exams are going pretty well. Only one left: Semantics and pragmatics. I don't think the subject is as hard as I think it is, but it is about meaning, and how meaning works, and therefore sometimes things don't quite make sense, because it's quite meta. If that makes sense...

If you're looking for a font that is blocky and monospaced with odd stress, I made Hi-lo. Caps are high, mins* are low. It can be used to make a subtle emphasis on some words. Maybe even to mimic the melody of a spoken sentence.

And have you seen the script I made for 'Mhmmz? It is pan-asiatically inspired.

*my slang for "minuscules"

Now I've started studying linguistics at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH) - or in Danish: Københavns Univertitet (KU). Well, "now" meaning "in September of last year". It's on the campus on Amager (KUA - Københavns Universitet Amager), very close to the metro station called Islands Brygge. So that's where I go every day by train and metro... well, almost. We only have classes four days a week, and they're about two hours each, so there's a lot of studying on one's own.

Luckily, I absolutely love the subject! Not to mention all the nice classmates I have recieved as well. Yeah, life's pretty good to me these days! The second semester is about to end now, so I'm about to have some exams, namely: one in phonetics and phonology and one in semantics and pragmatics. Both are written.

Oh, and then there's Japanese. I'm having two exams in that: written and oral, respectively. I'm not so sure how that'll go, since I sort of skipped a month of classes, because I was doing a musical. And when I came back it was the last class before the exams. Well, at least I don't need the grades for that, so I'll just wait and see.

Just now, I have engaged myself in the HUM-revy (Short for humanistic revue), which - as the name suggests - is a revue performed by the students from the humanities. We are only just taking the first baby-steps in writing the first few songs, and coming up with an overall theme.

Now I need some sleep. And maybe that's for the best, as I think I should be making shorter more frequent posts, instead of blocks of text once a year. That would be more reader-friendly.

But don't count on it.
