Wiki Tikki Tembo

Simon created a Squelch wiki. It's part staffer bible, part history lesson, part uber-indulgent director's commentary.

Many of you know it's one of my life dreams to do a DVD commentary. Pretty much that is my main reason for wanting to make movies. So the chance to reflect on past Squelch issues and feel important while relating the most mundane of facts is more or less equivalent to injecting heroin into my bloodstream. And yes, that includes the part about desperately chasing the next high to the detriment of my personal and professional life.

The rate at which you're adding things is frightening, but hey, it's cool.

The history part is really only for former squelchers since no one else would be entertained, but it's fun to read old stories about covers and arguments and pieces. Hopefully I'll actually get on the guide section at some point. I left my updated version of Tommaso's newsflash guide in the squelch office (I replaced his example newsflash with a good one).

Aaron and I are also looking for a zip drive so we can get the old pdfs and things off those discs in the office before they deteriorate. Hoping to get all the stuff up on the website for posterity.

way to make me feel old!

I also feel old. The pre-glossy folks need to barnstorm this thing.

I don't think that's the proper use of the word "barnstorm," but I think it conveys my meaning.

hmmph. somehow i had managed to forget the whole princess-bride fiasco. thanks a lot for letting it live forever on the interet.

p.s. how can you possibly remember so much??

Tommaso Sciortino said...

I'm trying to add a little bit too.

Matt: don't just complain, start adding pre-glossy stuff yourself.

matt said...

Oh, I have. But so far it's a Byerly-Holohan party.

I'm beyond delighted. All you fruits are adding all sorts of goofy stupid things that almost no one could care about, but it's just lovely. Exactly as I would've hoped.

I'll probably go through in a few days and add a bunch of photos to the people section. Apparently my admin account is the only one that can upload photos.

If anyone actually signs up for an account, I can turn on photo-uploading for you.

I actually registered. But mostly, I feel all I can add is minor quips to things other people would write. And I found out how to format links so its not www.ass.com and is instead The best link ever

So I can be useful that way I guess.

Or I can just write about who I've made out with.

The site could definitely use more sexual intrigue. Also a few action scenes.

dear simon,

speaking of old pdfs and things, could you email me the graphic of stalin & mao from the last page of the february 2000 issue?
