Apr 6th Text on Things
W e're currently fascinated by this simple blog, which chronicles the simplest and most humble uses of letters and numbers.

You don’t read Danish. Fine. If you know how to make an omelet, you may find that figuring out how to play this Flash game is even more fun while being ordered around by an animated, toque-wearing egg.

Apr 14th The Senator Prank
There’s something terribly sweet and a little corny about this project: John Hargrave, pretending to be a 10-year-old boy, sent letters to all 100 U.S. Senators asking for their favorite jokes. A few answered, and Hargrave prints their letters here (along with a charming note acknowledging the fact that the respondents were kind to take time out of their days, or their aides’ days, to answer a letter from non-voting non-constituent). And the jokes? Not all bad..
