Hello all and welcome to my most excellent web page! My goal in adding this page to the WTS is to entertain my fellow toasters, and maybe even a small segment of the rest of the Web. I'll endeavor to add something new every week, so keep checking in, or look for any announcements about my pages in The Wunderland Weekly News.
My offerings will fall into two categories: First, original works; artwork, music, photos, or writing that I'm collecting here for self-publication on a scale unimaginable a few years ago. Hopefully, the world's collective yawn won't totally blow me over, but I think you'll enjoy it if you've gotten this far. Second, Stuff I Found On The Web, brought back and held up to the light for your enjoyment. There's a whole underground world of music publication on the Web through a device called "MIDI", and I have a link page or two of my favorites for you to cruise. Also, in commenting on an issue or interest of mine, I'll write some essays filled with links for you to read.
Go directly to the corners of my electronic world by using the navigation bar appearing at the top of this page, or jump down below this section to find out what I've added this week. I'll also be experimenting with time, allowing you to scroll through previous weeks' versions of my pages where appropriate.
Here is this week's nanofic:
Hello all. News this week is that I saw "Malcom In The Middle", and it didn't suck.
Fox's promotion for the show has been particularly desperate, usually the sign of something
to be avoided at all costs. However, I decided to watch it since I had it on tape, and
was surprised to hear They Might Be Giants' "The Pencil Rain" during one segment. It turns
out that they are also responsible for the show's theme song too. Those of you who have
been reading your TMBG fan club newsletters were probably already aware of this, of course.
Anyhow, the show is a cross between Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Simpsons. As light
fare goes, it's entertaining mainly because this show will do anything to make
you like it. There's plenty of pop-philosophical addresses to the camera, flashy editing
and camera work, the classic childhood angst, and anything else they can throw in. What's
with that "____ is gifted" plot, though? Is this the third or fourth series premiere from
this network to use it? Maybe they're doing some kind of ISO 9000 standardization with series plots, or maybe this is something that happened to the CEO of the network so now every show does it to get approved. There you go, it's a free nanofic idea, go write it.
