Breaking news: I'm kind of starting to understand CSS!

Click here to see a Terminal Philosophy-themed final project for media class.

I kind of like the general layout and I’m proud of the title page, but the most important thing to notice is that the images stay in the exact horizontal and vertical center of the window, even when you resize it. This was accomplished with real, hand-coded CSS and I actually (kind of) UNDERSTOOD what it meant!

Maybe I should be a web design major.

…or not.

Let me also add that this has already done a good job of culling interest in the film, even before appearing on the internet: last week when I was showing the site-in-progress for crit, everyone really enjoyed the teaser (and Satan, Christ, and Leo being hit on the head all got hearty laughs).

That’s what I do. Cull interest. And cull it good.

  1. David, you are hereby admonished from including hyperlinks in any posts henceforth on this website.

    Also, Andrew, I cannot access my email from either the new server or the old. I muchly wish to know what is going on.

  2. First off, Evan: you don’t have that kind of power here.

    Second, due to the lack of rules on this site, David can do what he wants.

    Third, I admit, I did add that link, but you must admit I didn’t try to hide that fact much at all.

    Fourth, it isn’t all that offensive of a picture so I don’t know quite what all the fuss is about; I think that it’s from Honey I Blew Up The Kid. Everyone here except Andrew seems to be of likeness to the Red Queen of Alice in Wonderland, “Off with his head. Off with her head. Off with its head.” The image itself is actually mildly amusing, especially if you aren’t expecting it.

    Finally, I love the Terminal Philosophy site, rudimentary as it is, and think that we might actually just go ahead and use it if we have a stand alone Terminal Philosophy website. After fleshing it out a bit first, of course.

  3. Firstly, I said I admonish David. I didn’t say I prohibit him from posting inane hyperlinks to crudely grayscaled photos of humorously large children. Read a dictionary, you putz.

    Secondly, I don’t care if you’re really Parker, David. You should have the decency not to masquerade as other people posting as yourself. It’s not kosher.

    Thirdly, Parker, don’t try to defend him. David’s a big boy now, and even though he can’t take care of himself, we have a duty as members of a humanitarian society to care for and assist those mentally impaired vegetables in our acquaintance.

    Fourthly, in regard to your second point, if I were to prohibit David’s use of hyperlinks, you wouldn’t be able to do anything except admonish me against doing so, either.

    Fifthly, Andrew is too busy to regard anything as a waste of space. After all, he recently acquired 200 gigs of space and if we don’t waste it, it’s going to go to waste. We don’t want that happening.

    Sixthly, I don’t have any averse feelings for David’s post. I certainly don’t find it particularly funny (If it were in Prague or Beijing as opposed to Las Vegas, where much of Honey, I Blew Up The Kid takes place), I might be more inclined to split my side open, but as it is, the image is just kitsch in my consideration.

    Seventhly, I do enjoy the Terminal Philosophy website, although the video failed to load on my computer.

    Eigthly, Andrew has not yet answered my previous query as to the beautifulness of Leo’s head.

    Ninthly, I applaud the arrival of a Wholesale Souls DVD, and look forward to interactive menus that spontaneously explode.

    Tenthly, I have no tenth point to iterate to all of you.

    Eleventhly, I don’t know if eleventhly is actually a word.

  4. What the fuck does ‘4! 4! 4! 00100!’ mean, anyway? If you’re going to talk to me in binary, I can do the same to you.

    01111001 01101111 01110101 00100000 01110011 01110101 01100011 01101011 00101100 00100000 01100100 01100001 01110110 01101001 01100100 00101110

  5. firstly, tone down the sarcasm, everyone, or I’m bumping this thread to the forums.

    fifteenthly, Parker, don’t edit other people’s comments unless you have a good reason.

    fifty-fourthly, I have a cold.

    eighty-secondly, I hardly did any color grading on that shot of Vigni—just a slight desaturation of a video framegrab. He just has a beautiful head.
