I kinda like the idea of posting other countries' flags as FP, Daghain and SJ are doing.


But unlike these other schmucks, I actually have roots and practice the customs/culture of my country flagg. :D

Firefox: Tools>Options>Network Tab

it's splendid! http://i91.photobucket.com/albums/k291/mishemplushem/Facilitation/bear_thumb.gif

"Thanks, everybody, for buying DUMA KEY and--even more--saying
nice things about it. I haven't seen so few "flame throwers"

of you have been alive. Stay tuned, and keep checking this
site for new material. It's coming..."

Hey Everyone

We've re-arranged the sections in End-World to spread the load around as Fedic Station was becoming very crowded. This should help avoid duplicate threads and further streamline the media discussion areas. Here is the new structure:

Fedic Station (10 Viewing)
What's on the tube? Television & Sports Discussion

The Forge
Music, Video Gaming & Internet Entertainment Discussion

The Gem Theater
Film Discussion
Sub-Forums: The King Film & Television Catalog

Thunderclap - Relocation to another section pending
Horror & Fantasy Discussion

Odd's Lane (1 Viewing)
Riddles, Jokes, and Forum Games for the odd-at-heart
Sub-Forums: Bob Gray's Freaky Forum Games, The Road to Fair Day

Blue Heaven (1 Viewing)
Off-Topic Discussion Area B
Sub-Forums: The Courtyard

I'll start moving the threads today into their respective sections so don't be alarmed if threads start jumping around a bit. :)

What determines how high up the scale a website is? How many 'hits' it receives?

Matt
02-14-2008, 02:27 PM
That's part of it. Also how many reciprocal links you have from popular websites.

For instance, when we have a link on SK's official website back here, that will be good.

Other than that, its about how closely your domain name matched the search criteria (good there) and about a million other factors.

I like where we are though--gives folks a choice and we have been moving up pretty consistently over the history of the site.

The original brown is actually "no color" so I could remove the color but then it tries to assign a color to the group and uses purple. :panic:

Stephen King confirms The Dark Tower Movie
Posted on Monday, February 26th, 2007 at 5:40 am by: Peter Sciretta



Remember last week when we told you that JJ Abrams might be directing an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series? Well it looks like this rumor is true.

King confirmed the news to a crowded room at the New York Comic-Con:

“I know J.J. Abrams’ work and Damon Lindelof, who is his collaborator on Lost. Damon is just a total comic-book freak, and he loves the Dark Tower books. I trust those guys, and they have a lot on the ball. When they said they wanted to talk about doing this, I said, ‘You know what? Why don’t you buy the option on this and see what you can come up with.’ They asked, ‘How much do you want for an option?’ I said, ‘$19.’ (A key amount that comes up frequently in the books) And that’s what they paid me, and that’s where it is.”

“I said no to everybody until recently, because I didn’t think much of the chances of it being a good movie,” King told the crowd. “I mean, this is my life’s work, since the time I was 22 years old. It’s very important to me. Usually, with the other [books], I don’t give much of a shit. My attitude is, ‘Go make a movie, and if it’s good, that’s terrific, and if it’s bad, then it will go to the video stores and back shelves of Blockbuster, and I still get royalties on the book.’”

King also revealed that he turned down an offer from longtime collaborator Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Green Mile):

“Frank did come to me, and I know Frank from before either one of us had a pot to piss in. Frank said, ‘Gee, I’d like to do Dark Tower.’ I said, ‘Frank, give me a break! You’ve got The Mist, The Monkey. You’ve got the prison stories. … Stop putting so much on your plate!’”

May-be I’m missing something but, why wouldn’t king trust Darabont with Dark Tower? His previous adaptations are arguably some of King’s best movies. Well, for right now it looks like Abrams and Lindelof have their chance, but who knows when, where or if we’ll ever see the result.

The Dark Tower is a epic series of seven books written by King from 1982 to 2004. The story follows Roland Deschain�s quest for the �Dark Tower,� which is often described as a real structure, and also as a metaphor.

Update: JJ Abrams is now in pre production to direct Star Trek 11, and has a reported six projects in varied stages of development (including Cloverfield/1-18-08). So there is no word on when Abrams might find time for this project.

As some of you may know, we have had a bit of email SPAM and vandalism to our Arcade by people who sign up but never post.

The admin decided against a validation email program for new members because these may in fact be real people--meaning they could use a real email addy and simply validate.

The one they they don't seem to do is post so a new rule is being implemented for new members.

You must have 5 posts to begin using various things on the board including the PM system, the Arcade, Member Map, gallery...all of it.

Until you reach 5 you are basically a guest that can post.

We decided 5 posts would be enough to endear a would be spammer to our community and hopefully reconsider. :grouphug:

We'll see how it goes. :lol:

Hello Fellow King Fans! My name is Robert Kreh, and I am an Indie Film maker currently residing in Tampa Florida.
I recently received permission from Mr. King to adapt his short story Cain Rose Up from his collection Skeleton Crew. Under the dollar baby deal, I am unable to seek traditional investment as this is a non-profit project. So I am here to ask for your help in making this a reality! Every dollar counts as I am trying to raise quite a bit of cash, but there are oppurtunities for those who donate to receive screen credit, and become part of Stephen King Dollar Baby history.

For more info, or to just check out the teaser trailer, cehck out the new site dedicated to the project:

www.cainrising.com

I appreciate all of your support, and I am dedicated to producing a short film that is faithful to Mr. Kings work.

Robert,
I am sure one of the Directors of the site will get back to you soon-publicly or privately-but soon nonetheless.
Speaking for an unofficial standpoint, I am confused as to how an "investor/contributor" in a Dollar baby would recoup anything.
Of course the writer, director can and should use the opportunity to springboard themselves into Hollywood notariety, but I see little chance that the average joe who tosses $100 your way will benefit.
Love to hear your thoughts-perhaps I am wrong. If so, please tell me.

You are right. It is going to be a long ahrd road, But I just have to have faith, and seek every avenue of fund raising that I can.
As for "investing", I cannot ask for investment on this film as it is non-profit. I am hoping that the fans will support it by donating a few dolalrs, and if I get enough small donations, that I can raise the money I need.
I left the paypal button open for donations of any size, from $1-$1000. And an an incentive, am giving screen credits to anyone who donates $50 or more.
I thank everyone who has already donated, so far I ahve raised $210

On another note, I am not looking for Hollywood notariety. I actually consider myself somewhat anti-hollywood, and pride myself in continuing to pursue film making outside of the Hollywood system.
And my adaptation of "Cain Rose Up" will not be nothing short of a true adaptation of King's story. My goal has always been to make an adaptation that is as true to Mr. King's original story as possible, and once the film is finished, I hope that is reflected in the final product.

Hey Darkharvest--I am glad you are having some success with your donations.

Kind of a bad time to be soliciting here on the site though as we are in the middle of our yearly fund raising drive for the Haven Foundation already.

I do hope you have great success and I'm sorry the site isn't in a position to help out beyond this conversation.

Thanks. I will try not to spam you guys too much. I will drop in from time to time and post a new post about the project, and let you all know how it is coming.

I have always believed that word of mouth is the greatest form of advertisement. so If you can't donate, I would greatly appreciate any word of mouth you could give.

Thanks again, and if anyone wants to donate, or just check out the site it is:

and I can be emailed directly at robert.darkharvest@gmail.com

Thanks, I am slowly but surely raising the funds. I figure if I can get 10,000 people to donate $1, or 5,000 people to donate $2, or 1,000 people to donate $10 then I have my budget.

Every dollar counts.

I am dedicated to seeing this thing through no matter the cost, Even if it means hitting every chat room, every forum out there to do it.

Thanks for your support guys

I'm not going to make a big deal out of this but I want the members of this site to know that only someone in an administrative position has leave to contact members regarding site policy.

We have a very good system of administration on this site and if there is a problem, we will catch it.

If you are approached in any way by another member of this site for the purpose of discipline, please contact me immediately.

Thank you,

Just noticed your sig... My Grand baby went home

Sad but,
I always thought that the best part of being a grandparent was to fill your grand kids full of sugar and send them home to their parents.

That's the only way to get them back for the teenage years :D

I know I posted it in IYMRN but I'm announcing it!

Total Solar Eclipse!!! August 1, 2008. Here's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_eclipse_of_2008_August_1) the wiki article for it and here's a .gif showing the visibility range:

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/13/Solar_eclipse_animate_%282008-Aug-01%29.gif


Also, Perseids Meteor Shower, August 12th!!!

And when we say August 12, we mean that morning … not that night. These typically fast and bright meteors radiate from a point in the constellation Perseus, and, like all meteors in annual showers, they cover a large part of the sky. The Perseids are considered by many people to be the year’s best shower when the moon is out of the way during the shower’s peak. This year’s moon is not quite out of the way during the Perseids, but there is a window for meteor-watching in the hours before dawn.
