Go Mindfuck Yourself (multiple formats)
« on: July 03, 2017, 03:09:06 pm »
A new layout for one from the Et Cetera Discordia. I did this before with a blue background but I've been hating on it for a while so here's the better version. Two pdf attachments here! The booklet is for print only. Duplex, flip on short side, fold in half for pretty propaganda. The other pdf is suitable for online viewing, or printing single sided for postering.

The images here are from the online/poster order.

I like this.  I am unsure about the bolded/other font words.

I really wish the clip art of that guy didn't cut off his book. I'm tempted to add it back in in photoshop but that's a lot of work for a minor quibble.

Synchronicity would lead me to this on a day during which I'm contemplating personal purpose and impetus.

Thanks for this assembly, QG!

I didn't address this properly before.

The title font I'm pretty happy with and probably not going to change, but I get why it's not everyone's cup of tea. The other font ones are part of a dumb game I've been playing with the fonts to tie a couple themes together across different essays.

  • The Strange Times is done in that font (with some added frills) in The Strange Times essay, and I think I've done it up this way a few other places.
  • The Dangers of Modern Living is referenced in that essay, and I chose the highway gothic font (literally the font used for signs on highways in the US) as a representative of unthinking/uncreative Order* there and here.
  • Breathe is the text font from Breathe, which is one of my favorites and one of the more important ones IMO for the Revolution theme. The font itself is Sugarcane, and it's pretty bad but it matches the tone of that piece and the aesthetic of the barbelith/lungs image, so I'm pretty hung up on it.

I know the worst thing you can do to a joke is explain it, but I didn't want you to think I was brushing off the criticism casually. I've got my dumb reasons for shit sometimes.

*The story of how our highways ended up with that font I find amusing, and I was super excited about Clearview when they started rolling it out, but now Clearview's fallen out of favor and I don't know what's going to happen with our signs.

This is awesome. This is the kinda stuff that would've trapped my attention and led me down a rabbit hole at any point within the last 8 years, assuming I didn't already know of Discordianism. Good work to QG, Cram, and anyone else I may have missed!
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature.
