9, Typography, and Empty spaces

Hello, and welcome to another exciting edition of "The Blog No One Reads!" I'm your host, also known as the author, or Brad to some. If you don't know the rules, they're simple. Read my blog and you win. Don't read it, and we both lose. And I don't like to lose. I'll (insert cliche term meaning "You will either die or be beaten up by my friends in the Mob" here) if ya know what I mean.

9. Simple as that. One less than 10, one more than 8. 9. Not to be confused with Nine. 9 is a movie coming out this year that I am really looking forward to. So, it comes out in 2009. Can you guess what day it comes out? If you guessed anything other that September 9th, I will have to kill you and try to preserve what little common sense you have. Think about it, it's a movie called 9. So it makes since to release the movie on Sept. 9th. People will remember "I want to see 9 on 9/9/09." It's all a major marketing scheme. 9 is really difficult to explain, so I'll just let you look up the short film on Youtube. This movie is going to be simply amazing, if previews prove correct. It's being directed by Shane Acker, the director of the short film, and produced by Tim Burton (we all know him) and Timur Bekmambetov, most known for directing the movie Wanted. If the fact that Tim Burton is producing isn't enough, the trailer for this contains the song Welcome Home by Coheed & Cambria, and the MPAA has rated this ANIMATED movie as PG-13 for Violence and "scary images." So this should be an amazing movie, and I recommend you go see it. Ya know, when it comes out in September. Here is the the trailer for the movie 9. And here is the original short film to give some background on the story. Oh, and here is the trailer for the movie Nine that comes out in November that you don't want to see. It looks like a musical about making a musical...

Anyone ever heard of typography? It's pretty cool, actually. You basically make pictures with words or letters. There's not much to say on the subject, I just thought a few people might be interested in checking some stuff out. It's not an easy feat, but the results are pretty cool. You can find all sorts of typography everywhere, good and bad. You just have to search a bit. There are some videos of typography that are cool too.

This Space Intentionally Left Blank

And that brings me to my next point. YOU CAN'T WRITE ON THE SPACE YOU INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK THAT YOU INTENTIONALLY LEFT IT BLANK!!! That just doesn't make sense. How can something be blank when there is obviously something on the page?! That's... how can I even compare that to anything? The irony is just too much. It's like wearing a shirt with the phrase "I'm not wearing a shirt." written on it. It's like a No Right Turn traffic sign right under a One Way sign pointing to the right. It's like telling people you are a strong activist for Animal Rights as you sit there eating a breakfast consisting of Eggs, Steak, Bacon, Sausage, Ham, and a Pork Tenderloin Biscuit. It just makes me want to pull my hair out!

Well, that's all for tonight. I hope that was informative, although I'm not sure what the moral is. Oh, yes I am. The Moral is: DON'T WRITE ANYTHING IN A SPACE YOU WANT BLANK! And for the people who recognize any mistakes in my blogs *coughdadcough*, I DO know the difference between Your and You're, as well as the differences between They're, Their, and There. And Two, Too, and To. Well, I better be done for now. I'll blog again soon enough, and you'll enjoy it! See ya!
