Recently, I ran across this thread on InStrife. Ever since then, I've been obsessed with nature recordings, specifically, thunderstorms. Dan Gibson has a whole series under the title Solitudes. The series has recordings of various nature sounds but the thunderstorm ones are particularly cool. "Storm On Wilderness Lake", released back in 1982, has 2 tracks, each one 30 minutes long, and they're just recordings of storms. Dunno what it is about them, but I've been listening to them constantly at work.
Also watched Helvetica (trailer) recently. It's a documentary on the Helvetica font. Designed in 1957, it's probably the world's most popular typeface. It's an interesting movie if you're interested in design in general. It also reminded me of this zip-up with the built-in typography joke.
