Wot is this?!

This is a mini FAQ. An About page, if you will.

What are you?

You probably know me from the Rock, Paper, Shotgun fora. I was that maniac that kept reviewing films at a massive rate and for which everyone kept gawking at with awe.

Since my ego can’t be contained, I decided to “go public” and impose my thoughts of the world-wide Web.

My plan is to start dumping all my opus in here gradually, and then flesh out some of the one-liners if I’m truly ashamed of them.

But what about my opinion?

There’s no comments here because I can’t be bothered to setup a brittle system. If you really think your opinion would embiggen the already perfect posts, think long and hard about that. If you do that for at least 5 minutes and still think it’s important the world knows about your thoughts, choose one of the next options:

  • Do you already have a blog of some sort (Facebook, Twitter, etc. are acceptable)? Post there and send me a link by email. Web 2.0 über alles.
  • If you don’t have a blog, send me an email anyway, I won’t bite. You do know what e-Mail is, right?
  • You think your opinion is valuable but can’t even be bothered to send a coherent email with minimally correct grammar. Whine about it on social media.

If your contribution is valuable and you give me permission, I can be persuaded to create a “Letters to the Editor”-style comment system. If you just want to say how a bad person I am for not loving $FILM_DU_JOUR, I won’t ask for permission for out-of-context quotes…

Your opinion is correct but “All Things to All Men” premiered on DVD in Sweden on the 8th of January, not the 7th

Typos and factual corrections are always welcome. Since I don’t like duplication, send me an email and you too can get Internet points with a footnote thanking you for your keen eye. Just include on the subject line the string “[I Saw the Devil]” to make sure I read it.

What kind of magical web design is this? I want your babies (in the form of other blogs using this theme)!

You should raise your expectations of what good web design is. This might not be perfect, but it’s mine.

I’m using a custom theme, based on Minima (the default Jekyll theme) and Strange Case.

This FAQ is too passive-aggressive, isn’t it?

It sure is.

I can’t use Google Image Search and don’t know what’s that big image in the left/top.

That’s not a question! There are two images I used.

On wide screens, you see Jack Torrance peeking over a ruined hotel door. It’s from The Shining, and it was taken from this New York Daily News article. It’s a shot from the film, so copyright belongs to Warner Bros.

On narrow screens, you see Diana proposing the radical terrorists their own show, “The Mao Tse-Tung Hour”. Right after this shot, there’s a cut to said terrorists eating from KFC chicken buckets. It’s from Network. It’s a shot from the film, so copyright belongs to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer or United Artists, I’m not sure. All I know is that it doesn’t belong to me.
