Spreading fear and mayhem in the visual arts.

Prima Luce

Well, hello there and welcome to my shiny new WordPress residence.

Some administrative issues before we start:

Blogger Import

I imported all my old Blogger posts to WordPress. I did reformat them - however, I'm not sure whether they all show up correctly. Please report any bugs you stumble upon.


While the Atom 0.3 feed seems to be working fine, both the RSS 2.0 and RSS .92 feeds fail to load. Again, if someone knows how to fix them, I'd really appreciate your help on this.

Header Link & Horizontal Navigation Menu

Okay.. this is a bit embarrassing, but I've really tried to get my header to link to the main index site. However, the bastard doesn't seem to do it. Please contact me if you know the solution.

Also, I'll need a nifty navigation menu just below the header (à la BlastMilk) with my beloved old eye cursor - could you maybe help me again with that, Jan?

Title Graphics

Me wants title graphics for my blog posts instead of text titles. Again, you'll find a sample of what I have in mind over at BlastMilk. I'd be very grateful if someone could tell me how to insert 'em.


I hope I can still count on Juju's brilliant, and Michelle's rare, but not less astounding posts.

However, if you feel Darwinistically fit enough to contribute to Thee Temple ov Psychick Blah and get censored and insulted by me please feel free to send me an email. Masochists only need apply.

Uhmm... and where's the rest of the website?

Don't worry, the old website features are still online. I'll try to give them an avantgardistic WordPress styling as soon as possible.

That's all for now.

    well, hello and welcome to wordpress. fucking brillant as usual. i worship you and your supreme hacking skillz. it all looks way perfect as is.
    the feeds. i dont understand why they would not work. is the wp-rss2.php file in root, or did you place it in a subfolder?
    the links seem to look for wurzeltod.ch/feed/etc. try entering the exact url, eg: http://wurzeltod.ch/whateverfolder/wp-rss2.php. i also noticed that the link to these comments seems to work perfect: http://www.wurzeltod.ch/?feed=rss2&p=217

    the header thingie? you might have to lay a transparent image into the header div. and set the link to index.php on the image. for it not to push down the horizontal nav you might have to fiddle with postition relative and absolute there. can be a tricky bastard.

    the horizontal nav seems to work proper. now you could easily implement the eye roll overs via css. please do call me, i'll gladly try and help. i'm your man, i am. your slave even. your biggest fan, and and and [add to list at your leisure] i love you!

    one more thing. you could do all the subpages [vita imago, ectc.] as wordpress pages as opposed to wordpress posts. wp pages are basically like static html pages, with the added advantage that you can still update them using the CMS. very cool for pages that do not need to sit in the regular blog loop.

    also, whats quite cool is that you can switch layouts from category to category. that way you could have subblogs with their unique styling and layout. this is what frenzine.net has used to create the different aprearances. the template engine is TEH brilliantest and really worth diving into. again, i'll be glad to help.

    me again. [oh i do have a life, but this i like doing best...] the error the feed gets is this one:
    "XML Parsing Error: junk after document element
    Location: http://www.wurzeltod.ch/?feed=rss2
    Line Number 298, Column 1:PHP Warning: date(): Windows does not support dates prior to midnight (00:00:00), January 1, 1970 in d:\www\www504\wordpress\wp-includes\functions.php on line 26" it does not seem to like a date somehow. maybe a post you did got accidentally backdated? the server clock is messed up? please try to set error display to on at your host so we can look into this some more.

    Do you mean the old splash site design, ro_G? I thought it's better without splash.

    I know what you mean though.. I feel pretty naked without it too. :(

    Really? Eeeeek! I had no idea about that. I might try and insert an HTML badge instead then.

    Thanks for letting me know.

    Yippee! Let's re-add it then! :)

    The unworking RSS is still a complete mystery. Maybe it actually stands for "Really Stupendous Strangeness" or something.

    Can't chat, I'm in bloody Zurich. :(

    Thank you for submitting that link, Bruce. I love your work. Reminded me slightly of Egon Schiele's sketches.

    However, I don't think it has anything to do with the article you posted it to.

    Please make sure to use the link submission form in the navigation bar on top in future.
