Michael Moore on his next project: “I’m making a film called Fahrenheit 911, the temperature at which freedom burns. It’ll be about how Bush is using 9/11 and those 3,000 lost lives as an excuse to move along his own conservative agenda.”
this site is moving to a newer better faster stronger cooler server! so the weblog may go down for some time while I rework things… see you all soon!
The movie that inspired 250 Cannes film-goers to walk out, some of whom required medical attention, doesn’t get a review at Film Threat. “This is not a review of Gaspar Noe’s new film ‘Irreversible.” It is a warning. You have never seen a film like it; that is not a qualitative statement, it’s a fact. There has never been a film like ‘Irreversible.’ No ‘star rating’ has been applied above because conventional indications of ‘good’ or ‘bad’ simply do not apply to this film.”
I know… what the hell am I doing redesigning this site when it’s been sitting dormant for so long… what can I say – I couldn’t resist – Travis’s insanely cool patterns were calling to me (thanks to Matt). I’ve also been dying to make this site standards compliant. Which it is. Check it out: it validates as XHTML Transitional. But you probably don’t know what that means. I’m a geek, so it’s cool to me. Something else that’s cool to me is that this design has been done entirely with CSS – no tables for layout! What all this means is that although the content of this site is available to all browsers, the site’s design elements will not display in non-standards-compliant web browsers – so Netscape 4x (L)users are SOL. Get outta the 90’s and get a better browser.
Update I’ve just noticed that the site doesn’t quite look right in IE 5 on the Mac – the cool background pattern isn’t showing. Dunno why. I’m looking into it.
