I’m not really feeling Fear Itself. Though, I didn’t really have high hopes for it in the first place, it was nice to see that horror was getting a shot at glory on network tv. Unfortunately, they’re squandering this opportunity. I posted a new blog over at Bloody Good Horror about it, making some recommendations to the producers about how they might improve it based on the success of the candidate for the best TV show of all time, The Twilight Zone.
I’ll probably do this every time I post something new over there.
You’re probably going to notice the look of the blog changing throughout the day. Bear with me. I was tired of struggling with the Mandigo theme and Andrew of Gronkyco sold me on the MistyLook WordPress theme. It’s much easier to edit and doesn’t have the display restraints that the Mandigo theme I was using had.
The biggest problem was displaying Adsense. I could only put a couple of ads on the site and that doesn’t do too well since not all of you are coming into the site from the Index page which was the only place I could put the ads. There is also the matter that it isn’t XHTML valid out of the box. Steve of Lost Highway managed to hack the Mandigo theme to make the sidebar dynamic, but he assured me that it was not easy to do. So I’ll periodically be updating the new theme throughout the day to make it look as close to the old Mandigo Cinema Suicide theme since I really liked the look of it.
So here we are; the blogosphere that you’ve been hearing so much about. I’m still in the process of getting my shit together, but I figured I should probably put something in this space to remove the standard WordPress Hello World placeholder. Shortly, you can expect to read news, reviews, interviews and self-indulgent ramblings on the topic of b-movies. As soon as I get the site map and adsense in place, I’ll start rolling this out to the masses but for the moment you’ll have to settle on vague promises of things to come.
Big ups to Andrew Watson for the hosting. Hopefully, I’ll shortly be able to stop freeloading and get my own host.
