Well, really, links plural, but the visual gag doesn’t work in the plural:

Anyway, just took a fast and dirty click-tour through the Stories category here, and, man: lot of ancient, broken, go-nowhere junk. Sorry about that. Should have cleaned it up years and years ago. Hopefully will get to the other categories before too long. In the meanwhile, if you click something and it goes, I don’t know, to some defunct Geocities pages, feel free to l…

something in the old theme was looping, chewing up all the memory, and it was also defaulting to the mobile version for desktop. so: new look, for a bit. just picked something simple (and not mobile friendly, alas), as I can’t mess with it at the moment. but, hopefully, maybe:

And, that new header-img, it’s a crop from a Theo Van Alst snapshot, I think. Dude knows his way around a lens.

Guess the body of this post is pretty much in the subject line up there.

Maybe again someday? Who knows. Just deactivated, didn’t delete. Wanted to see what the other side is like. But I’m still in birdland, should anybody need me.

And I’m on Litsy as well, having fun.

Not on Instagram, though. Reason? I never think of taking pictures. Jealous of an impressed by all the people who do and can, though. Or, maybe I should say, the only things I ever think to snap a pic …

new-websiteIt’s what the new theme’s called. It’s made for showcasing cars—photographs, at least—has a cool built-in slider I can use if I set a featured image with each post. but, the drawback is that it then plants that featured image large-size at the top of every post. So, I fiddled with this, fiddled with that, re-learned CSS and had the usual fun parsing PHP, and this is what we got for now. what’s cool is that—I don’t think I have a screenshot (I …

tried to add The Faster, Redder Road to the menus, and it somehow broke all the secondary menus. I deleted it, but the breakage persists. So, either I’ll reinstall this WordPress or re-install the theme or nab a new theme, I suppose. And hopefully soon. But right now I’m writing a novel. Sorry for any inconvenience. In the interim, you can can click on ‘Posts’ (or, about anywhere) on the top_nav menu, then use the Search box to find the book pages and wha…

Took TWO HOURS yesterday to go through, clean up all the broken junk over in the navigation. And there was no small amount, either, sorry. Most were the result of other sites updating this or that, which changed the URL. Meaning, I only lost four or five stories, two or three interviews, and a couple of podcasts. So, all’s well.

However, I would guess there’s still the occasional broken link in the posts. That kind of tending, I don’t think I’ve got th…

I haven’t been this impressed with a slasher in a good long time. I want to say since Cabin in the Woods. And before that . . . Tucker & Dale vs. Evil? Behind the Mask: Leslie Vernon? Except none of them quite play it Golden Age, either. And that’s good, don’t get me wrong. As you can tell from Demon Theory and The Last Final Girl, self-aware’s more than fine with me. Almost all the slashers to come all along after 1996 have been the children of Scream, after all, if not clone…

So, post-hack, lost a few posts, all the comments, and have yet to get everything tailored exactly as I want it, but demontheory.net’s more or less functional again, even if the images &etc in some of the links aren’t going to work anymore. And the menus and boxes will continue to change, as I figure out what does and doesn’t work. Actually going to use categories this time around, anyway. Should help. Anyway, any grievous kind of problems, obviously m…

Just a note to say, yep, it’s all different now. Got tired of the red and black stuff, just washed it all out grey and white. it looks like it should in Firefox, but I’m thinking that, in IE or IE-driven stuff, the “em”-size CSS is going to get ignored, kind of throwing off some of the formatting. anyway, maybe I should just use pt-size instead of em-. Or, is that a problem for anybody?

Anyway, as always, any bugs, leave a comment here, I’ll fix. Only o…

if you click somewhere and, I don’t know, something bad or unexpected happens, or if you’re having trouble with some form, with display in some browser, anything along those lines, put a comment down under this if you want, please. We’ll try to get on it (where ‘we’ = ‘I’).…
