Trajan is the movie font

posted by Adam Lisagor   Dec 13, 2007

The Goodie Bag podcast has an entertaining little video on Trajan, the font used ubiquitously in movie credits and posters:

Like indoor plumbing and toga parties, Trajan hails from Rome. Matter of fact, you can find almost 2,000-year-old inscriptions on Trajan’s column, where they have totally off-the-leash keggers on Saturdays… Russell Crowe has co-starred with Trajan three times now.

This reminds me of Red is Not Funny, J. Tyler Helms’ illustration of the wide use of bold red letters in distinctly unfunny comedies. (via cameron hunt)

Must See TV dead

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 01, 1998

Thursday nights aren’t what they used to be. Since Seinfeld is gone and I stopped watching ER, I don’t watch TV on Thursday nights anymore. No Cheers. No Cosby Show. No Family Ties. No Night Court. Not even a Different World (ah, Jasmine Guy, where are ye now?). A long tradition is over. Must See TV is no more. Long live Fox Sunday nights.

Except for That 70’s Show.
