recent additions

The effect of the CSS is "chibi" spines. I amuse myself. Still doesn't work in Opera.

Nomad vs. Sauron

Who would win? They seem pretty well matched. Nomad can sterilize an entire planet. Sauron can destroy all of Middle Earth. They are both very focused on their goals.

First CSS from scratch

A very long time in coming and now only by accident - I have written a few (and no doubt inelegant) lines of CSS. Only five years or so behind everyone else. The results can be seen at my infrequently updated soundtrack comments page. The effect is reasonably accurate, even modified for my column format.
UPDATE: My CSS does not work in Opera. It is faulty. I am faulty. This unit will execute its primary function.
UPDATE UPDATE: Opera is faulty. A really smart co-worker has demonstrated this. I am somewhat disappointed in Opera. But only a smidge.

FSM-Style Spines

I finally got around to making spines for my CDs (my spines are easy to read and have only the needed info and their design happens to be copied from the Filmscoremonthly CDs) and so represent recent-ish purchases in an approximate way. My formatting is accomplished by crude CSS. You have to imagine them away from my narrow column formatting and instead spread across all 5.125 inches of CD jewel case spine.

Truly Awful LEGO Things





Companions to the Toa Maiden? Or mindless slave drones constructed from the shattered parts of those she has defeated?
