Arts & Literature Trivial Links
Compiled by Nathan Mattise
- My own grandmother is turning 90 in less than two weeks and I’ve tried to keep in touch with her regularly through letters… is anyone doing that for J.D. Salinger now that he’s 90?
- Think this kid’s dad is the most popular one in his/her elementary school? Check out dad’s daily lunch bag creations (no word on whether or not he packs bacon as a regular lunch occurrence).
- I finally saw the documentary so I’m currently Helvetica-obsessed (<— not in the proper font). If I wasn’t, Kafka’s pen stroke would be an artsy (pretentious?) alternative.
- After I attended this online design forum last week and heard about Jonathan Harris, I immediately felt I had no future in online journalism. Just check out the concept and execution of this project.
- Finally, “Shultz’s Beethooven: Schroeder’s Muse” may be the coolest pop-culture themed art/museum exhibit ever.
