Far Side of the URL


Some friends of mine went to see Master and Commander: the Far Side of the World this evening. I went to the IMDB to get the runtime of the film and realized I hadn't been to the official site of the movie. I like seeing if movie websites do anything interesting (like Requiem for a Dream [flash]) so I went to the official site. I present to you the URL


I didn't know the ALA was doing other websites now!


I don't get it. Looks like a pretty standard movie site to me. What's it got to do with ALA?

Sorry--I didn't get it either! Would someone please explain so I can stop worrying about it?

the problem isn't with the site, it's the URL for the site, namely, "masterandcommanderthefarsideoftheworld.com"

As earlier mentioned, earlier this year the American Library Association shelled out big bucks for a site redesign. The new URLs were rather unwieldy and
was quite appalled. So Blake's joke about masterandcommander.com gave many of us some scary flashbacks.
