Amsterdam is crazy

I have trouble understanding Amsterdam. It’s confusing. First you are walking along by a beautiful canal, enjoying the pretty-as-a-picture scenery….

Then, BAM! Aaah! You are somehow accidentally in the red light district despite having specifically tried to avoid it!! Aah! Get behind me Satan!

I also saw a pretty fun bar logo in A’dam today:

I thought, wow, that’s some expressive typography. And also maybe the only time that terrible font has been used well in the history of its existence. And THEN I thought, “a bar with a logo that cool really deserves to have me among its clientele.” So I went to the website to find out more and turns out it’s a gay bar. Which adds a WHOLE NEW layer of meaning to the type!
