Cats Let Nothing Darken 2010 Calendar
For five years the calendar cats let nothing darken their roar has introduced new, odd, and strange phrases every month. It started with 30 modest copies in 2006, to over a million in 2007, as it came out from the huge rotary printers of the daily newspaper helsingin sanomat, to an edition of 500 today.

Shaboopie.com – 83 completley free logo’s
I don’t usually support stock logo’s but Gene submitted these links to me. Shaboopie.com has tons of free logo’s, and they aren’t half bad… even if you use this as just inspiration or playing around with ideas… It’s a great collection of free logo’s. The only real downside is they are psd file’s and aren’t hi-res.Friday Fix Oct 23

Being a Starving Artist Sucks | Verbal Kung Fu for Freelancers
Jeremey Tuber
contacted me last week with his 2 books in mind. I was lucky enough to receive both books from Jeremy. I just received them, so I haven’t had too much time to dive in, but from what I have read so far – the books are fantastic. Hopefully in the next little while, I can set some time aside to read and put up a proper review they deserve.

Australian freelancer/blogger Jacob Cass just recently reviewed them as well. Here what he had to say about the books.

Typotheque Web Font Service
As we near the release of CSS3 and the advancements in web browsers, more and more designers are wishing and waiting for print font’s to be made available for use on the web. Typotheque has a bunch of really cool fonts for you to use on the web… It’s as easy as adding a line of text and then using the @font-face rule. Of course this isn’t free.

This is a great step into the future, as we all hope that this becomes standard with most fonts.

Online College Reviews
Nathan sent me this great website where students can rate their colleges, he had this to say;

The reviews section is one of only a handful of places on the internet where students can write a public evaluation of the colleges they attend. The high school students and working professionals who visit your website will find the reviews especially helpful; they can make more informed decisions about college after reading the reviews.
