Redesign phase one

Or maybe phase five. I’ve lost count.

But I think this is what my new theme is going to be. It’ll change slightly from the current set-up, but it’s already a big improvement. No white text on a black background for starters.

 

Spike Lee wants to sell you his old shoes

When Hollywood starts talking about Kickstarter, then you know it has jumped the shark.

Not content with having their own money, well-known filmmakers are now turning to crowdfunding website Kickstarter to get yours too, permeating the service like Japanese knotweed.

The site is a genuine life-changing tool for people who have great ideas, but no money or contacts to make them a reality. Using Kickstarter, they can post their dream projects (artistic or otherwise) and if people like them, they can pledge money. The higher the amount pledged, the bigger the benefit they receive.

A few years ago, I set up a blog called The Void. It grew quite quickly, became an online magazine, and it’s still going.

The rationale behind The Void is, if it’s interesting and entertainment-y, then we give it a home. That’s movies, theatre, tech, games, pro-wrestling, MMA, books… if one of us likes it, it goes on the site.

I’d love to show you what The Void looked like back in 2007, but even the Wayback Machine can’t dredge up the original design. Not that it matters, the site now (designed by my good friend Phil Beel) looks awesome.

Jim Carrey, Sandy Hook and Kick-Ass 2

June 25, 2013   -   0 comments   -  

Kick-Ass was a very, very violent film. It had a little girl saying naughty words and chopping limbs off and then Nicolas Cage burned to death.

So, when Jim Carrey signed up to play Colonel Stars and Stripes in Kick-Ass 2, he kinda knew what he was getting into. Especially as he was such a big fan of the first film, he appeared on a late night chat show dressed as the lead character.

This is why it has come as such a surprise to everyone involved in the film that he has just turned around and said he cannot take part in the promotion of the film because he disagrees with the level of violence employed.

A note on design

I know white text on a black background isn’t great. A redesign with a friendlier colour-scheme is coming.

I’m using this as inspiration.

Terrible web design
