Oh dear. I mean, I know Twitter is many things to many people, and for a while it’s been more about distribution than ambient intimacy, but really- should people be advising that every post should be clickable? It’s especially galling since Twitter doesn’t even have room for full URLs (or a mechanism for including them in metadata as opposed to taking up space in the post).
Perhaps if I look at that as advice for corporations, as opposed to people, it’s less vexing. (Except, of course, for the fact that I care about people, not companies. Ah well.)
The Terminator, 1984 (dir. James Cameron). By rizomer.
Oh, come on. This isn’t even chronological order, damnit.
I know I’m biased (I did my own version a while ago), but a lot of movies in frames are pretty meh. There’s no theme, or narrative: they just feel like random shots from the film, picked because they mean something to the author, but they never manage to convey what that something is.
That’s not to say they’re all rubbish; on the current front page, the Reefer Madness frames are very well done. More like that, please.
[Edit] Tom points out that the first frame might actually be from the “in the future” sequence at the beginning. If so, then I’m wrong. (I’ll admit the colours work really well in rizomer’s version, too.)
