Another pointless Matrix post

by Suw on June 18, 2003

The Matrix Reloaded: The Abridged Script. If that doesn’t have you snorting your cornflakes, frankly nothing will.

Seems I’m not the only one to notice that Matrix = hits. Although for Jason Kottke it appears to be turning into a bit of a bandwidth problem. He’s had so many comments to his Matrix: Reloaded review that the page is now around 125,000 words long, stands at 1.3mb and is caning his server.

I read the review when it was first posted, but because I didn’t really think much of it, I never came back to see how the comments thread evolved. Taking a look at it today though, well, certainly the beast has got a life of its own. I killed far too much time this afternoon reading it, and I’m not even a third of the way through it.

Some interesting stuff discussed though, such as the significance of 5 and 101 (five in binary). Mind you, there’s also a fairly high percentage of cack, but I guess that’s to be expected.

Well, y’know I wouldn’t mind suffering that problem. Still, I suppose I can call my readership ?exclusive? instead. 😉


Maybe what I should do is just find out what the top ten searches are on Google and post about them ad nauseam.

Actually, what I should really do is stop writing my blog whilst cooking. It would seriously reduce the number of unidentifiable black crunchy bits in my diet. Although I suppose the charcoal might be doing me good.

I really must also deal with that smell of fish.

Oh no, please, no?

I just flicked on the tv and up popped a documentary on BBC2 about direct mail. And guess what I’m faced with? Yes! Vertically scrolling green text! Except, and this is the really clever bit, they’ve used the roman alphabet instead of the Japanese Katakana alphabet and, wait for it? it scrolls up instead of down! Wow!! That was a real leap of imagination boys!

There’s a time and a place for vertically scrolling green text, and it’s not in the middle of tediously dull documentary about spam.
