Welcome To The New!

Welcome to the new and improved Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob! This took quite a bit of work, but I think it was worth it. Everything is much neater now, more customized, and much more pleasant to look at.

Let me give you a quick tour/explanation of the new digs:

Home: This section will be for all the articles, site updates, P.E.S.T., DVDs or Death, etc. Basically anything that isn’t a straight-up movie review, book review, or TV review will be posted here. Also, if you’re following this on your RSS Feed (or something similar), you won’t need to follow the other pages to see if I update. Any time I update with a movie review or whatnot, I’ll post an update on the home page section to announce the new review/post. That way, you can keep your RSS Feed nice and tidy while still knowing exactly when I update everything.

Movies: This is the section that will have all my movie reviews (theater reviews, DVD Reviews, 2 In 1, Short Reviews, etc.). Though there will be no movie-related articles in this section… like I said, those will be going on the home page. This is strictly for reviews.

TV Shows: This is the section that will have all my TV show reviews.

Books: Of course, this is the section that will have all my book reviews.

It’s all pretty self-explanatory. There are a few exceptions to these rules, though. For instance, I have some “Thoughts On” that are just basic discussions on film. Though I had at least one “Thoughts On” that acted as both discussion and review. The latter went into the “Movies” section, while the former went into the “Home” section. Also, there are some “Page-to-Film” comparisons or some “spectacular bam wow” posts that span two sections for obvious reasons. But that’s nothing y’all really have to worry about.

You’ll also notice in all three ‘review’ sections, the right side-bar includes a drop-down menu that has all respective reviews in alphabetical order, making for a neat, tidy way to find what you’re looking for.

You also might see some funky formatting with some reviews/posts, but most of those were already there with the old layout, though some are new. I’m just too lazy to go and bother with all 300+ of them, if you know what I mean. They aren’t that bad.

Also, I accidentally deleted one post… ironically, it was the first ever post to give me a ton of views: the infamous “10 years, 10 screenplays” post (that was actually 11 years, 11 screenplays, because I can’t count). But oh well.

So anyway, I think that’s everything! I hope y’all enjoy it. I thought about giving each section (movies/TV/books) its own rating system, but I don’t rate TV/books all that much… and I didn’t want to make it too confusing/convoluted. Though I did edit a few of the meanings for each of my normal ratings. So… yeah. There y’all go!

Thoughts?

  2. You've already gotten all of my feedback. Looks great, Nick. Now, since you, ahem, changed the header font, do you want to send me a new new random LAMB banner?
