2006 Crowbar

Anybody seen the site yet? No? It’s here.

I wonder who’s in charge of it. It looks alright on a widescreen iMac, but I can imagine Karen having just under 59719023 square miles of empty, white screen should she decide to maximize the window. That, and every other page except the home page reads “Untitled Document” in the title.

It it just me, or does all this feel sub-par compared to previous years? And what is up with the Curlz MT and mystery meat navigation???

(P.S. Thanks Lershan for the post)

this year’s crowbar site left me in dismay.
CURLZ MT?! In primary 5 I thought that was cool. But for now, so NO.

wow.. they didn’t even bother to rename the pages.. ” UNTITLED DOCUMENT” ..

It looks so amateurish!! Definitely done in a hurry by a student no less.

Randy sent it to me a while back. And he was ranting about the CurlzMT too! I just think it looks absurd. Everything about it is ridiculous. Symbols, symbols that don’t look like the letters they’re supposed to replace, drop shadow, gigantic, unstyled text… the list goes on.

And I learnt a new term today: “mystery meat”. Though sometimes, patties are tasty.

ironically enough, guess who was an esteemed judge at this year’s Crowbars?
