I feel violated, but still am glad the one's updated their page. It's been awhile. The mouseover text is hilarious, as always.

Speaking of violated, is Dick doing what I think he's doing to Jerry?

That is quite possibly the most inexpensive way I have ever been convinced to never do drugs, ever.

I'm not sure what was the most disturbing thing about that, but the front runner right now is the cheesy midi version of the Celine Dijon, Titanic song!

So it's now ok for hipster web desginers in The Marxist Republic of San Francisco to make post-modern visual jokes involving the horrible deaths of people in the World Trade Center? That's good to know.

Even if I agreed with the sentiments behind such a thing (or, indeed if I could figure out what the sentiments are), I wouldn't like it. It's the lowest form of political (Is it political?) satire, and expresses only cynicism, nihilism, and mean-spiritedness. Not to mention being fucking ugly as sin.

But hey! We're post-modern! We don't need no steenkin' beauty!

Yeah, this is ill-informed and ugly. And that's really all you can say about it.

I have to agree; just as... sad... as it was last time around.

I agree with everything sir walsingham says, but non-sarcastically. love it. It has a certain Anarco-dada-Japano-mescaline je-ne-sais-quoi to it. Like a still-life animutation. Although I think they're probably getting their bandwidth clocks cleaned, so to speak. Compression, people!

You guys must've croaked the server, it's pretty catch as catch can now. I never got the complete page to load and gave up after a bit.

Jesus had nothing to do with that.

Now I know what websites in Hell look like.

yes.
it probably also mocks millions that died under mao, but that's long ago and they're not americans, so i don't blame you for ignoring them (just in case you wondered if it was ok to do that). please also note that under the bleeding patriotic hearts trying to make others feel bad convention of 1967 i have now won this game and you owe me a pony

Yes.

Yes. Yes.

Yes. Yes. Yes.

With regards to 60X1.com, [This Is Good]. Beauty is relative, but if you don't appreciate it on an aesthetic or ideological level, you should recognise the amount of time and meticulous effort that went into producing this.

Two thumbs up from me.

Prophetic indeed - "The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later."

Here's a less retina-obliterating Valetine's Day present from the Bush administration.
