Avia S-199 in Israeli Air Force Service

Another swing at NSD

I find all these nifty Web sites that are too good not to share, and my old creative juices boil, and I have to let them out. That’s what blogs are for, no?

Cracked was once Mad Magazine’s drug-addled younger brother, but the magazine has really spread its wings since moving online. “The 9 Most Badass Bible Verses”, an article at the Cracked.com, analyzes nine passages from the Old Testament and rates them for sexual and violent content – mostly violent. The sequence starts at the ninth most badass passage (these are not all limited to one verse, strictly speaking), and the best action-hero line in the whole article – “looks like someone bit off more than he could Jew” – but keep reading, all the way to number one, in which David proves how much he really wants to marry Michal. Our favourite? Number eight.

Are you a freelance writer? Want to be one? Freelance Folder offers a list of 20 must-read blogs for freelancers. A successful freelance career is as much business as it is writing, and these suggested readings don’t overlook that. Freelance Folder is itself a blog, and is 20th on the list, so I suppose this is really a list of 19 must-reads. Best of all, this gives you someplace to pretend to work while you procrastinate.

A few Web sites out there let you build your own fonts, but not all of them let you share your fonts in a gallery or tutor you on creating fonts, and even fewer still do it all as elegantly as FontStruct. Creating the fonts is easy. It’s like drawing on a sheet of graph paper, but with many differently tipped pencils. It’s a bit overwhelming at first, but if you watch a video that FontStruct creator Rob Meeks put together, you’ll at least grasp how to use the tools at your disposal and you can concentrate on design.

Hmmm. Those seem short, even for NSD. Well, at least it clears three URLs off my desktop.

Bonus accolades:

IPMS/USA (the American division of the International Plastic Modelgeek Society) has a positive review of the Avia S-199 book. I wonder how much they’d offer a copy editor?
