Something has been bothering me as I consider the blogosphere:
What is it about the current rage for very small “digital” – looking type on many sites and most art and philosophy blogs? Is this the tyranny of the minimalist majority? Who told all these lefty-dissident academic hipsters to start using unreadably small fonts on black or darkly colored backgrounds? Duh.
Did I miss the memo or something? Did the Party Central Committee issue a graphics edict to the cadres that never reached me? Does “night pumpkin overkill” ring a bell? Don’t you people value LEGIBILITY for God’s sake? I doubt the unconverted masses are going to read your endless hyper-intellectual screeds as long as you conform to this current typographic fashion. Get READABLE, dammit!
Or are your arcane cerebral perspectives so über-cool that you want to actively OBSTRUCT the uninitiated from having a relaxed viewing experience at your sites?
Dang. Can’t even READ this stuff…
When so many are using the same format one has to wonder – are ye nothing more than a herd of typographic SHEEP?
You have heard of sheep, yes? Or do you need this ontological precept to be deconstructed before you can deal with it?
As someone whose wisdom I greatly respect once said:
“The more loudly you proclaim your freedom, the more clearly I hear your chains rattling…”
That was my poem for the day. I hope you enjoyed it.
PS: More black and orange, please.
