The shitty design is only temporary. I started on a new design, decided I didn't like it, then started on a different one, and decided I didn't like that one either. I hope to get a new one up soon.

I saw Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tonight. I was mega disappointed. Some parts were funny, but for the most part it was just disappointing. Way too mainstream for me. Dear Johnny Depp: Wonka should be creepy, not cute 'n cuddly teehee! I still stand by my choice of Christopher Walken for the perfect Wonka. Scriptwriter-guy: too many pop culture jokes. Probably the one good thing about this movie is that it makes me want to read the book again. Oh, and the Charlie kid was adorable, no two ways about it. I was worried he'd be irritating, but he wasn't. He was successfully cute. The other child actors were shitty actors as most child actors are. They all recite the lines in such a trite way; you can tell exactly where they'll place the accents, and exactly how they'll inflect each sentence. Meh.

Oooh, I know you say it's only temporary, but I like the layout. Color scheme = nice.

Also, crap. Because I was hoping Charlie and the Chocolate Factory would be good. But...well, yeah. I'm still going to see it, because I just am and stuff.

Christopher Walken would be good for the part of the guy who is supposedly Mr Wonka's competitor looking to steal the Everlasting Gobstopper but is really working for Mr Wonka.

I left the period out of Mr because that's how the British do it and it's a British book.

Slugworth, you mean. He had a very minimal part in this one.
