Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith translated to Chinese and back to English
The results are not pretty. Very funny, though.

What you had to say:

I needed that today.

So, your new banner.

I find it a little disturbing?

July 28 2005

really? what do you find disturbing about it? I cropped part of this image I took when we were in Edinburgh, Scotland.

It was a wall of graffiti near Edinburgh University and remains one of my favorite pictures.

I'm thinking of going with something where the banner changes when I get the time to code it up.

Well, I think I found it disturbing b/c -- and forgive me for this, but -- at FIRST I thought it was a picture of Charlie that you had warped in the style of those old emails that were going around where you could warp Gore's and Bush's faces.
The big blue eyes, etc.

July 28 2005

yeah, that would have been disturbing. I hope nobody else thinks that. heh.

So now it's that building at the bend in the river near my old place, right?

While we're on the topic, I find it difficult to read black text on a dark gray background.

But the Star Wars thing was great.

it's a shade lighter now.

I thought so. Thanks!
