You probably never realized it but BIC is your god damned lifeblood. Specifically the BIC Cristal Ball Point Pen (deserving of ALLCAPS and shit, BIC get’s so turnt up that they decided to reinvent the spelling of Crystal. They only fuck with the undisputed vowels).
They created this well put together and rather interesting web app/experiment/project jawn that connects whatever fucking device you have on hand to your computer, and once connected you can contribute to the universal typeface.

Go check out The Universal Typeface Experiment and contribute that chicken scratch you call handwriting.

There are some real big-wigs behind this project, from the dead Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Dick Cheney, Ernest Hemingway and more and more. To see the whole list of who had a hand in this beaut you can check the vimeo credits HERE.

It’s a rare view into the world of the wonderful, and it’s magnificent.
Isee5c is a marvelous little tumblr that Apple has created to showcase their one-a-day, masterfully animated, 15s spots for the colorful iPhone 5c.
They’re going to make you smile, so I suggest you view a few of them if your day is less than 60% swell.
