You have to remember that computers are always right. I was changing the script that displays the newest, most active, and most recent posts over in the right column. I made the changes to the code. Everything seemed to be running fine, but I kept getting the wrong results no matter what I did. It was REALLY frustrating. I was debugging it for probably an hour when it finally dawned on me that those were the correct results. Oops. I then apologized profusely to my computer for the repeated verbal thrashings I was giving it. It felt better after I gave it some candy.
And if you’re curious, those links now check the news and life posts forums (instead of just general). I did that mainly so I could conveniently tell when someone replied to a post. Now tell me what you think.
3000 Miles to Graceland sucks. Hands down. The first 20-30 minutes have some redeeming value, but not nearly enough to compensate for the crap that is the rest of the movie. There is a gross overuse of “jerky” (for lack of a better word) camera work (which seems to be popular among action films recently.. you know what I’m talking about). It becomes quite annoying. The gun fights are incredibly fake (although sometimes neat to watch). Your dog could write the story. The relationship that forms between Russell and Cox upsets me because the hardened criminal and the whore (sorry) “fall in love” in about 2 days and end up living happily ever after (or so we’re led to believe.. I like to believe she runs away after a week). The movie could have been at least decent if most things after the first 30 minutes were done differently/better. Oh well, some movies suck so you can appreciate the good ones.
This cracks me up though. About half way down the page, there’s a review of the movie (dated 27 February 2001 by Queequegfilms) who says, among other things, “overall this is one of the most fully fleshed, well rounded films I have seen in quite a while” (it’s predictable, contrived, typical, boring, stupid, too long) and “the budding, and slowly blossoming love between Cox and [Russell]” (come on!! slowly?? it was 2 days!) and “This film on the whole becomes the first film in quite some time that I know I will see multiple times in the theater, and one that I am sure I will eventually know all the words to” (that would really be a waste of time) and to sum up his ignorance: “I loved it.” Actually, I think he has a crush on Costner or something. He is constantly living him up (and he even bashes Russell at the same time). Dumbass. Now tell me what you think.
Oops, I forgot. The forum still works, but doesn’t look pretty yet. But It’s late, and I’m tired, so that’ll happen tomorrow. Cheers. Now tell me what you think.
You probably notice the new layout. You like? It’s MUCH faster than the last one. And this one doesn’t break Netscape. Yay? I’ve also added an archive for the splash pages. The link is on the right. Also, in the spirit of archives, I’m trying to gather together the previous layouts (remember the chicken? so people can take a look at them. Right now, I just have the last layout (the one that just got replaced). Everything else should function basically the same. Oh wait, we also have a new member! None other than Wojo, the evil one that tries to keep my up all night with his insane ramblings. Hopefully, he’ll have something interesting to post about :). There’s also g.pig if you wanna count him. He’ll be babbling once in a while probably, also. Okay, that’s it for now. Now tell me what you think.
Heya folks. I’m g.pig, and I’m an allstar rapper. I rap with the best as I’m sure you’ll all attest. Now tell me what you think.
