The Art of the Title Sequence

Cool website collecting title sequences of movies.

“Remember when your heart sank just a little when you realized the Pink Panther movie wasn’t a cartoon?

Then, only a few years later, seeing Edward Gorey’s eerily fantastic opening to ‘Mystery!’ capped with Vincent Price’s name on a headstone had your head spinning at the thought of the kind of stories those etchings could tell…if only the show was based on those illustrations.

Well, we want to see more of that. So watch and remember and create. And if you’ve got something to contribute, send it along.”

justwatchthesky

Ryan Sims revived his website justwatchthesky.

The scope is narrow: An exercise in documenting words in the music I listen to with color and type. The constraints are simple: (1) Only use Georgia (serif) or Helvetica (sans) and (2) try to post as often as possible. We’ll see how long the experiment will last, but for now, I’m enjoying it. It’s like a music blog/splash page hybrid.

Tumblr-like design for ImmaterialFacts

And again I decided to re-align my blog. I didn’t really use it the last year or so, so I wanted to re-align and change the format. I never wrote long posts even though I thought I would. So, the new format is inspired by Tumblr, a very cool, almost micro-blogging, blog system. It’s hosted which I don’t like that much and my webhosting service doesn’t allow DNS record manipulation, which would have been a good way to integrate Tumblr into my own website. Then there are some other problems:

  • no import for my old posts
  • Search
  • not fully customizable
  • control over content

So, here is my take on a Tumblr-like webpage powered by WordPress. I hope I’ll really use my weblog from now on. I intend to do so especially for notes to myself and to collect finds from the web. There might be the occational longer post. We’ll see.

Version .9 of ImmaterialFacts

Today I uploaded Version .9 of ImmaterialFacts. It is my first dark design and I’m not yet sure if I really like dark designs in gerneral. It is a test and this beeing my personal playground website is the best place to try out things like this. I wanted to make this Version 1.0, but it is not perfect so it doesn’t deserve a 1.0 version number. I’m going to start working on a real re-align as soon as I really have time. I hopefully will have time to focus on content as well. But for now this is just a temporary design as a motivation to work on this site again.
