redvector: GIMME OPS!
Will post about the insane weekend later. I will interview people later. I will be interviewed later. I will procrastinate later.

And here is a hilarious version of the Matrix. The scene with ``THE EXPLAINER'' was hilarious. jwz agrees, and I nod furiously while being a fanboy.

Tonight I watch Throne of Blood with noelr and aaronkliger, at the latter's house. I've seen his version of my favorite Shakespeare work, might as well see his version of one of my runner ups.

Feeling: indescribable indescribable

number 1 thing about that post that is unfortunate: excessive links

rocognize:
if people read your journal, they will have already seen the first three links... and be thinking W T F? those links add nothing to your content... if someone is going to click on your links, then surely they have or will see your previous posts... and linking to the same post twice is doubly pointless.

so that's the first three... and then there's procrastinate"...
it's a neat site... but it's a blind link... I'd much rather know something about where I'm going... I've already visited stuff that I've read that you wrote for the first three links, and now I've been sent to some random site that is not connected to the rest of the post in any way...

then we get to the tragedy!

the link to the matrix parody is great! I'm glad I read it! it was clever, funny, and insightful! AAA+++++++ GREAT TO DO BUSINESS WITH THIS LINK AAAA++++++++++++

but it's buried in after three self-links and an unrelated, unexplained link. and then directly after that is just a link to another post that someone who reads your journal has already read and if they don't then they aren't reading the current post.
providing a source for your link is nice, but linking to the source just quoting from it and pointing to it is, once again, useless and adds no dimension to your post, and it's the first post you see if you go to his page from the link right before the link from agrees...

The last paragraph is good, though the "his version" links could have just been stated plainly... if someone is interested, they'll find out for themselves, people know how to use imdb. If they're not interested, then why make them click two times to find out who you're referring to with the "his" (I thought it was aaron at first)... and would it have been a lot cleaner if you had just said "I saw Akira Kurosawa's Ran, which was his version of King Lear, my favorite Shakespeare play, might as well see his version of Macbeth, too" ... even if you linked to the same pages without the ambiguity of "his" and "version"

I am the link police.
watch yourself.

I would take the link police more seriously if they actually did their job more often.

"perhaps you should drink more Powerade"

'nuff said.

Re: "perhaps you should drink more Powerade"

The comments about the Animatrix and Enter the Matrix were perfect as well.
