    When I think of Adrian Frutiger, I think of, well, Frutiger, which is sort of a humanist grotesk, maybe. Then I think of Myriad Pro. Of course Frutiger didn't design Myriad, but Myriad is pretty much...

    I understand what you are trying to achieve (and I have seen some other good examples in a similar style) but to me it doesn't read as 'EFM'. It seems incomplete. Needs more work. Or a different appr...

    There is no recognition of your initials without knowing what they are. Nicely executed but conception is weak. Try another avenue.

    Happy Star Wars Day!

    * Harrison Ford was not originally a candidate to play Han Solo. He was just brought in to feed lines to other auditioning actors. After watching him, George Lucas realized he was the perfect Han Solo.
    * Luke's line, "I can't see a thing in this helmet," was not scripted.
    * Mark Hamill annoyed Sir Alec Guiness so much on set because of his youth and excitement that Guiness paid him a dollar to go away.
    * Denis Lawson, who plays Wedge Antilles, is the uncle of Ewan McGregor, who plays Obi-Wan Kenobi in the prequels.
    * Billy Dee Williams originally auditioned for the role of Han Solo. Christopher Walken and Nick Nolte were also considered for the role.
    * The carbon freezing chamber is the only time in the original trilogy that Darth Vader and C3PO can be seen on screen together.
    * The line, "I've got a bad feeling about this," is spoken in all six movies by six characters: Episode 4: A New Hope (Luke, Han); Episode 5: Empire Strikes Back (Leia); Episode 6: Return of the Jedi (Han, C3PO) and Episode 1: The Phantom Menace (Obi-Wan); Episode 2: Attack of the Clones (Anakin); Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith (Obi-Wan).
    * In Episode 1, Jabba the Hutt is credited as playing himself.
    * In some shots of the Mos Espa arena, the public is made with colored Q-Tips.
    * Darth Vader never actually says, "Luke, I am your father," as many believe. The line is, "No, I am your father."
    * Before she was cast as Queen Amidala, Natalie Portman had never seen Star Wars.
    * Keira Knightly played Queen Amidala's (Natalie Portman) decoy in Episode 1.

          Did you tell Luke you're his Father?

                  Watched a movie the other night called Blood Mania (1971)

                  It was part of a cheap-o collection of "Drive In Classics"

                  A pretty trashy thriller. I was expecting a little more horror, psycho killers, or maybe vampires or something. Each time my wife walked in the room, one of the actresses was removing her blouse, taking a bath, skinny dipping or knockin' boots with the lead actor.

                  Any way: the lead actress in this flick also played Creedo in Star Wars. Though it pains me to say this, I will admit that Star Wars is a better movie than Blood Mania. Only slightly so, because this movie has lots of boobage, where the only boobs in Star Wars are Luke, Jawas and C3PO.

                    Well Seamas...I seem to remember in Star Wars: A new hope (Ep.4) that the trash compactor scene had Leia in a white top that was getting wet...sure seemed to my younger eyes to be some aureola spots showing through.

                    Also in Return of the Jedi (original version, not the 1997 update or whatever when a new dance was added) but the scene where the woman in blue dancing around Jabba with the "tail on her head" her boob popped out...hard to notice and the VCR and tape was hard to go back and do a slow-mo but it was there...not in the updated version since that dance was extended and the woman (15+ years older) was brought back in to dance and be filmed.

                            That was Keira Knightly? Fun fact.
