More Smash Than Mash
It can feel like you're being assaulted at times, but when it works...woof.
Check this medieval meets Dr Dre mashup for the good.
Kudos to the devs for the site structure, ease of use, and stuff.

A guide to combining fonts.
But Only If You Want To
I think this is the first article to explicitly say "1 font is ok too." Frankly, I'm not sure I can be trusted with even the single font, but...It's comforting.
