Worst. Website Design. Ever.

Seriously – WTF is this?!

Look at it. Just look at it. Surely that’s not even legal?

It’s so horrendously bad, it was named as 2008’s worst website of the year.

If you’re interested (or just want to experience the horror for yourself) in a larger version, hit this link.

Some guy on the internet has made a screencapture of the whole site – it’s fairly large, though. Hit this link.

Finally, if you want to experience the full experience for yourself, hit this link. At your own risk. I take no responsibility for what happens next.

Just. Astounding.

Twitter’s Massive 2008: 752 Percent Growth

The final numbers are in, and according to Compete, they’re astounding: 752%, for a total of 4.43 million unique visitors in December.

752% growth in a year?

That’s. Just. Insane.

When you factor in the fact (pun intended) that those figures are only from the US, then it makes a 275% growth in the past month seem miniscule in comparison.

Well – I suppose it is Twitter we’re talking about here… 😉

El Guapo’s Top Ten Kick Ass Movies Of 2008!

Now that the year has come to a close, let’s take a look at what I thought were the best movies of 2008. These are the little and big gems that you looked at on the theater marquee and thought, “I wonder if this is awesome?” This list will hopefully answer that question. These are the movies that made me want to walk out of the theater and kiss the first old person I ran into.

For the record, I’ve seen:

Quantum of Solace (#7)

Wall•E (#3)

Iron Man (#2)

3 out of 10? Not bad, considering that 3 or more are fairly recent.

The 19 Best Movies That You Didn’t See in 2008

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Opened on October 3, 2008

Directed by Peter Sollett

High school student Nick O’Leary, member of the Queercore band The Jerk Offs, meets college-bound Norah Silverberg and she asks him to be her boyfriend for five minutes.

Why it’s on here: Before I even saw this, I was expecting it to be the next Superbad or Garden State. Then I saw it and thought it could actually achieve that level of success. Not only was it fun (and funny), but it had a sweet side to it that made it more than just the typical teenage comedy. It may have not been the best comedy of the year or even as good as Superbad or Garden State, but considering it is at least better than most other stupid teenage comedies, it deserves a bigger audience than it got in October. The charming Kat Dennings is at her best in it, as is Michael Cera.
