MTV News html redesign & Hilarious Multiple Horror

Posted on February 5, 2007. Filed under: lists, MTV News, multiple personalities, Sisters, The Tenant, work |

Our website is a lot easier to read/load now. Check it out. The first time I tried to use the site in an all flash environment, I thought it looked really “fancy” and there was definitely a lot of eye candy going on. But soon I realized it wasn’t user friendly at all and things took forever to load. This redesign has been in the works for a while, and I actually think it makes the text and images stand out a lot more. It’s still in beta of course but, it’s definitely a step in the right direction…

The Tenant = <3, but ???

…Maybe it’s because I watched De Palma’s Sisters right before The Tenant, but I couldn’t help but think about all the movies I have loved that have explored multiple personalities.

The Tenant isn’t exactly about multiple personalities as it is about a man’s descent into paranoia-induced madness, but he does a major portion of the film in drag, imagining himself to be Simone.

Sisters is about Siamese twins and how after a botched surgical procedure takes the life of one twin, the other absorbs her personality as a coping mechanism and murders any man she sleeps with.

In Sisters, De Palma uses a lot of split screens, and in The Tenant, Trelkovsky sees himself through binoculars both in the shared bathroom and when he is visited in the hospital. Fragmented perception (as a theme and as a visual style) always hooks me.

My Favorite Multiple Personality-themed Films

Sybil – Psycho – Mommy Dearest – Fight Club – Never talk to Strangers – Nurse Betty
