ec. 3) -- Most filmmakers wouldn't want to be told their films put people to sleep, but it's a compliment to director Sondra Lowell.

In fact, putting people to sleep is her goal as the self-proclaimed inventor of a new genre she calls "film sleepy."

Lowell has made two such films thus far. The first, "WebcamMurder.com," is mostly shots of people sitting around in front of webcams 24/7, wondering how to get Web surfers to tune in on their uneventful lives. "It sounds a lot more excited than it is," she told AOL News.

The second is "Sublime Crime: A Subliminal Mystery," and Lowell claims it is the first entirely subliminal mystery in history.

"It is a big step forward in movies worth sleeping through," she said. "It is mostly a blank screen with flashes of plot and personal growth affirmations, accompanied by an unintelligible binaural soundtrack."

So far, the critics are in agreement with Lowell about the quality of her work. For instance, the Los Angeles Times called WebcamMurder.com "the most boring talkie ever made," and the reviews for "Sublime Crime" have been just as positive.

Got you interested? More (boring stuff) here!
 
Ha... that's... boring... :D

So she failed to entertain, so she's using this as an excuse. Good for her. Quite lame though.
Next, we'll have a "game sleep" genre.

    https://www.thehelper.net/pages/news/ is a link to the old news portal - i will integrate it into the interface somewhere when i figure it out
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Need to try something
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hopefully this won't cause problems.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Hmm
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example: https://www.rpnation.com/news/

    The latest news feed looks good

    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
