Say Joe and Company,
I was just poking around the link at right with the big red rectangle and, wouldn't you know, I ended up in a place where I can help donate to the cause here at Typophile. I don't remember seeing an announcement for it or a plug to kick it off so I thought, hey! let's take this puppy for a spin! So I did! so hey! Tell us about it, Joe? Let's not keep it a secret! Inquiring minds and those who wish to contribute would like to know :-)

You beat me to it... if you're not careful people will think I put you up to it. =)

The concept is if you have sympathy, send Typophile $15. If you love Typophile, send $45. And, if it's a true obsession, you can show it with a larger donation of $100.

You’ll receive a badge to add to your user icon. Let other users know of your undying sympathy (shield), love (heart) obsession (drop of blood) for Typophile.

You can contribute here -->

Also, if you purchased a tee, or buttons, or came to our SF Film Fest in the last 12 months check your inbox for your badge to match your contribution. (Some of you made other significant contributions this year and you haven't been forgotten.)

Oh man any of those would make an awesome T-shirt. Is that in the works or part of the donation package?

I'd love to look in my inbox, but unfortunately my old typophile.com address never seems to have connected with the real world, and the profile editor won't let me change it for a real one. Boo!

I'm going to chip in a bit, as I did earlier for the 'membership,' but I'm not putting up any badge. I have overdosed on synagogues where every wall and stick of furniture has somebody's name on it.

William,
I know what you mean. There is some guy named "American Standard" that has his name plastered everywhere in the country--probably even the Minneapolis airport :-)

"Badges? We don't need no stinkin' badges!!"

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Blazing Saddles was on TV the other night, looovvvve that movie. They ran commentary below it about the making of the film, some pretty interesting, funny stuff.

Blazing Saddles has history in our family. We grew up watching Mel Brooks movies. One summer we were stuck on our boat in a huge storm down at Lake Powell. All we could do was sit inside the boat and pray it let up. My brothers started reciting the movie, from the beginning, including songs and silliness.

When I was really young, just starting out as a designer, I was pulled into a meeting with all these big honchos. I can't remember how it started, but somebody quoted Blazing Saddles and there went the next 15 or 20 minutes of the meeting. We were all laughing our heads off and I proved I was "one of the boys".

You do know the edited-out line "Lady, you're sucking on my elbow" don't you?

No! Which scene is it from?

After Lili says "It's twue!" (in her dressing room)

One of the possible titles had been "She Shtups to Conquer"

The commentary also talked about how there is no way this film could have been made today, but that without it we wouldn't have the Farrelly Brothers and their ilk.

There is some irony in there. We worry so much about what we might say today that we miss many opportunities to really get to know someone.

Just saw it now (from paypal):

Two days ago you sent a payment to leadership[@] punchcut[.] com. This
payment is still unclaimed. Often, unclaimed payments are a result of a
payment being sent to a misspelled or otherwise incorrect email address.

punchcut -- you don't want the payment? :)

I got the same paypal, email, David. But I also got one from Joe with the avatar badge. I assume Punchcut got the money. If not, I hope they say so.

I also didn't get any acknowledgment, but I already said that I didn't want to put up a badge, so I assumed that's why.

My badge inexplicably ended up in my "spam" folder so I didn't see it right away. Maybe check there?

William, the badge would blend in so subtly into your avatar... it's even the same red.

No tag, Tiffany. I cancelled the transaction.

Thanks for putting this up, guys. I'd been waiting to make my contribution to keep Typophile in the green.

I tried adding the badge but it detracted from the look of my avatar. It looks good in Sharon's.
