Quotes Run Amok and Some Fun Music

October 6, 2010

I ran across a few fun things that I wanted to share with everyone. One is related to typography and the others are purely for your entertainment.

One of my pet peeves is straight quote marks that should be curly. Drives me crazy. Little did I know that there was a site created to show examples of “quote marks run amok“. You’ll find numerous examples of designs with “way too many quote included”. Yes, I’ve purposely added a few extras in this paragraph.

Now for the fun music. Did you grow up watching the Flintstones? Are you a fan of Bruce Springsteen? The video below is “Bruce Springstone” singing the theme song of the Flintstones. It is a fun rendition.

I know I was totally addicted to Gilligan’s Island when I was a kid. Be honest, how many of you can sing the theme song? It was just a few days ago that some friends and out started singing it spontaneously. So what would happen if someone were to mix the Led Zeppelin classic Stairway to Heaven with the theme song to Gilligan’s Island? The video below is the result.

OK, that’s our fun for the day. Time to get back to work.
