Book Review: Da Vinci Code

If there’s one thing I love about a movie, a book or a website it’s something which keeps my attention, and The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown certainly does that. Never have I read a book before that literally grabs my attention to the point where I don’t want to move; forgetting about eating,… read more →

New Site Review

For the first time in about a year, I’ve had a new review done by Rhiannon of PetShopGirl’s Reviews. Have a read, it’s good! Feel free to expand on any ideas that have been suggested. I wouldn’t mind some suggestions for other reviewers/reviewing websites too — it’s been ages since I’ve had site reviews done.… read more →

Book Review: Don’t Eat This Book

Don’t Eat This Book, by Morgan Spurlock, is a tongue-in-cheek look at the fast food industry all over the world, focusing primarily on McDonalds in America. This book accompanies his documentary Super Size Me, in which he demonstrated the effect that eating nothing but McDonald’s food for 30 days could have on the human body.… read more →

Review of sami.sophistichiq.com

Reviewed: Sami Site URL: sami.sophistichiq.com First impression: too much text. I like reading websites — they’re quite interesting — I don’t like being chucked in at the deep end though. An introduction should be a few sentences maximum, preferably with a few keywords nicely highlighted for me to pick up as I scan. If these… read more →

Unrequested review of maxed-virtuals.com

Reviewed: No idea Site URL: maxed-virtuals.com I can’t wait to start reviewing this website so I’ll just dive right in… Your splash page — what’s the point of it? Presentationally, it looks okay I guess, but in terms of functionality it achieves nothing. It doesn’t even have the word “enter” on it. There’s no title… read more →

Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life Review

I first came across Harvest Moon: AWL at my almost-Sister-in-Law’s — she was tending to one sick cow and complaining that her other had stopped producing milk. A few moments later and she was chopping grass and picking weird fungus from the ground while I watched, rather unexcited from what I’d seen so far. How… read more →

Review of deep-within.dk

Reviewed: Louise Site URL: deep-within.dk My first impressions are that of disorganisation, and not because of your site. You put your domain under a subdomain to hide from someone and then moved it back to the main domain – yet didn’t bother to contact anyone to notify them of the URL change. The graphic notice… read more →

Review of vegabok.com

Reviewed: Brian Site URL: vegabok.com The first thing I notice about your website is that it’s very tidy. It’s rare that I come across a personal or hobby website which takes such a professional approach to design. The subtle colour scheme compliments the crisp style of the layout, and is supported with individual images for… read more →

Review of distorted-reflections.net

Reviewed: Ronnie Site URL: distorted-reflections.net Vomit coloured content boxes; awesome! I’m not sure which to criticise first: the colours you picked from the top image as your ‘base’ colours, or the image itself. Obviously the distorted effect suits your the domain name and therefore ties in. However, the effect doesn’t suit the photograph. I’d have… read more →
