Macromedia Flash, possibly around 1998.

I not sure what this thing was about – and for sure the only time I used a running headless chicken  on a red ball as a kind of logo. It raises questions you know :)

ELL was one of my last flash sites. At the time flash (2.0 – and still my Macromedia) had no real scripting ability and a serious shortage for handling dynamic data.

God Bless America (2011)

Director: Bobcat Goldthwait
Writer: Bobcat Goldthwait

Author: crushingaflood from Portland, OR (USA)

Bobcat Goldthwait's scathing critique on modern pop culture is vicious, unapologetically ugly and truly hilarious. Whereas Mike Judge's "Idiocracy" was a clever yet far fetched tale of humanity gone stupid, "God Bless America" uses, with absolute precision, a scalpel to peel back layer after disturbing layer of American shallowness and cruelty. Incorporating elements of mindless pop culture, media propaganda, and reality TV cruelty and bravado, this movie perfectly illustrates the all too real (and sudden) cultural cancer that people nowadays consider entertainment. It is simultaneously hilarious and morbid.

It's a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling "No"
And her daddy has told her to go

And she's hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a saddening bore
For she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Little Miss Sunshine (2006)

Directors: Jonathan Dayton, Valerie Faris
Writer: Michael Arndt

Comedies about families usually come in one of two genres. Often featuring dysfunctional families (are those two words redundant?), they are either broad and goofy ("Cheaper by the Dozen") or dark and abstruse ("The Royal Tenenbaums"). Driving its Volkswagon bus down the middle of these two extremes is "Little Miss Sunshine", a comedy both inclusive and exclusive, one that some will get entirely, while others will whiff on to the same degree.
