Another round of Six Degrees of Stephen Coles?
0

For those of you who missed it the first time around, join us for another round of Six Degrees of Stephen Coles!

Ok, up for the challenge?

Starting at a site in which Stephen Coles is a guest editor, can you connect our beloved type deity Mr. Coles with a “patriotically attired Chihuahua” in exactly 5 clicks?

Whoever posts the answer first gets to post the next challenge.

And of course, thanks to Stephen for letting us have some fun affirming his position at the center of the type universe.

OK, so we’ve established that you start at coudal.com.

The first click has to do with Photoshop…

1. patriotic dog featured in wired mag. (google “patriotically attired Chihuahua”
2. wired mag uses typography/art from multi-talented patric king.
3. patric king is a principal* at typographi.ca
4. stephen IS typographi.ca.

is that what you had in mind.


* very formal made-up title

you let Mr. Earls off the hook for his last one in the old thread. David, what’s the linkage on that one, eh?

Christ, you know, I forgot I was supposed to post another one of these. But…

>you can post the next challenge, but

anymore.

…is this the general consensus? Should I not bother? I have to dig one up anyway, so if anyone has an opinion, let me know.

Thanks.

JLT, Stewf gets all the babes only ‘cause they know you’re already married.

Typographica is JLT. He’s just extra quiet so he might
not embarass me with his superiority. What a guy.

Where are these babes? Direct me to these babes.

i think the “problem” with this thread is that
people cannot guess. i mean, you get it or not.
there’s no room for guesses.
imo, this is what is making this thread so quiet.
i don’t know, maybe we should drop the “actual
links” rule, and make it more like the first “six
degrees” round.

I got completly confused in the first round, and thought that you were meant to suggest totally obscure connections and let others discover the links.

Hmmm. I’m not the brightest cookie in the candle shop. Clearly I’m two planks short of a picnic.

Stars & stripes.

Sorry BJ, no good. It’s got to start at a site where Stephen is guest editor and ends on a page with the Chihuahua.

Hint #2: Not Typographi.ca

deh! I guess I should read the instructions.
By ‘clicks’ do you mean actual links on a page?

Then that’s not a patriotic dog, that’s a perro traidor.

If you do it right, you’ll land on the Chihuahua after 5 actual clicks, yes.

Yet Another Hint: type “Stephen Coles guest editor” into Google to figure out where to start.

OK. So I didn’t traverse the six degrees, but I found this in 4 clicks and thought it was worth sharing anyway.

1. Stephen guest ed. at coudal
2. Post about early visual poetry
3. Link to ubuweb
4. Found+Insane

So it’s not a chihuahua and it’s not the stars and stripes, but by god it’s nice.
