    Alright, that's it. I am downloading and watching Helvetica right now so I can figure out what the hell you guys are all on about.

    Someone needs to create a spreadsheet of these names.

    And Morac, You can be Ziggurat Rockwell. Or Memphis Baskerville.

    I think I'll go with the latter, if only for the Sherlock Holmesian implications (also, the former sounds more like a porn name than a typeface pseudonym).

    Oh crap, what have I started?...
    Also, you can gussy up the type name if you like. Like putting a "us" at the end like I cleverly did. Not.
    And I just liked the name Stig. It sounded Northern Eurpoean tough. And it's not a typeface.

    Eep, me and my wacky ideas. I'll leave the fancy names to you folks...I'll have to do them in instalments..probably spotlighting certain ship departments...hmm..something to keep me from boredom. Let's see, I've got: bridge crew, sky harpooners, engineering, dissection/cooking crew....

    I claim OCR-A extended. I have a tattoo in that font. Just call me "okra" for the sake of ease of pronuciation.

    Well, now that I have finished watching Helvetica, I have obviously developed extremely strong opinions about all fonts. And, as such, I am rechristening myself as Dr. Franklin Gothic, because that is a font that is just crying to have a character attached to it (also, who doesn't want to be a doctor?).

    "Tahoma Anchorhead" sounds like a stripper name in Neil Stephenson book...

    With this amount of insomnia, I think I'm "Baskerville Old Face". -.-

    I was telling my boyfriend about this font naming thing and he came up with "Ms. Sans Serif." Someone needs to take it bc it sounds awesome (also reminiscent of Sand Serif from The Spirit).

    I'd be happy being anyone in a Neal Stephenson book.

    I see absolutely no problem with this.

    @Paul, you know, I was thinking. I would definitely purchase a black Air Kraken Civil Defense Force tanktop...and a t-shirt. And a zippo...and a badge...

    @ MojoKing - I've always liked Flint Roqwell. He sounds like a primative fellow that just might be missing a chromosome or two.
