“Brawl in Cell Block 99”, another great movie from S. Craig Zahler

I felt like I was reliving my first and only DUI arrest incident while watching this film. That’s why I tagged this post with #PTSD. It was wonderfully shot, acted, and colored. And like Drive, with Ryan Gosling, this movie hit home with me at this point in my life. It seems like certain art latches on with me at particular moments when I need that inspiration to grow, to develop, to progress.

By the way, my first notice of S. Craig Zahler’s skills came from the movie, “Bone Tomahawk”. I highly recommend that film, but not when you want to be settled-down and relaxing. It’s a gripping, gritty tale that strikes me as being so original and fresh and horrible. 🙂 But there is some truth in it, I think, as I explained in another post.

Web log status update

Hello, friends!  🙂

I’m getting much more comfortable with WordPress.com and am starting to customize my site and its structure.  Along those lines I realized my About menu item wasn’t doing what I thought it was doing so I fixed that.

Man!  CMSes have come a long way!!!  It’s such a delight to see.  CMSes and putting structured data online, on the Web, used to be my purpose in life and it’s so good to see how they’ve developed.  These tools are so powerful, much easier to use, and aesthetically pleasing.

My greatest relief is probably that there remains a sense that standards-based technologies are the golden path.  HTML, CSS ECMAScript — all of these are blessings.  I’m thrilled that Flash is almost a memory.  (Starting to get off track here.)

Anyone remember PHPNuke???

Okay, I’ll shut up now.  🙂  Have a nice day!  Thank you for reading.
