Activity Sighted at Defunct Website

PSIDONIA -- In a surprise development no doubt related to the holiday and the spare time and retrospection that it brings, sources tell us that nearby Lisaverse might be undergoing renovation!

Indeed, visitors to the site, which has undergone several revisions in the past, are now welcomed by a single page with a green egg and the enigmatic words, "Something is hatching."

"This is most extraordinary," said one observer who preferred to remain anonymous. "It would appear that something new is looming! What could it possibly mean?"

What could it mean? To answer that, sources within Psidonia may have answers. "Careful analysis of the page," supplied an intelligence operative who works directly for El Presidente, "leads one to believe that the Lisaverse will reinterpret itself as a movie trivia site. Since Lisaverse has, in the past, focused on this subject repeatedly, this isn't a very bold conclusion. Still, the current page title, 'In Space No One Can See How Bad You Suck At Movie Trivia' and the prominent green egg suggests a possible tie to alien parasites. For this reason, my department is recommending an immediate quarenteen of the Lisaverse and a full physical examination of all individuals who have visited there."

Uhh...that's 'quarantine'.

"Whatever. The point remains that Psidonia cannot risk inflicting chest-bursting parasites upon it's"

But surely this is just a reference to a movie. After all, haven't you already asserted that the site will probably be devoted to movie trivia?

"A probability is not enough to guarantee safety. We need to be sure about this."

How can you be sure?

"Nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure."

Attempts to contact the developer of the site were unsuccessful, however the opinions of random citizens were varied. "I don't think it does anything to address global warming. Lisaverse should stop catering to the webmaster special interests and ratify the Kyoto protocol," said one. "Oh, I go to Lisaverse all the time!" Said another. "There's no better source of yak milk recipes!"

One individual, dressed in a tie-dyed shirt and wearing love beads insisted, "Oh wow, man! It is so groovy to see the Lisaverse come back after so's like when the Monkees reunited. Or when the Beatles got back together. Oh wait, that hasn't happened yet. But it's the same thing, only better. Can't you feel the love and harmony? Hawwwmmmm!"

Historically, Lisaverse has concerned itself heavily with movie trivia. Back in May of 2001, the site hosted the popular Ash Awards, so named in honor of Bruce Campbell's character from the Army of Darkness series of movies. Then, in July of that same year, the Lisaverse sported a new look and revised information on upcoming films and DVDs. But by September, signs of trouble emerged as the Lisaverse ignored movie updates and instead chose to focus on political commentary.

"That was the beginning of the end, really," recalled one observer. "I mean, before the rumors of heavy drinking and orgiastic parties started circulating. Not that any of us put any stock at all in any of that. After all, they were just rumors, and what difference does it make if there were actual photos in the Weekly World News?

Still, the latest changes bring hope that new life is stirring at Lisaverse. "I think she's got the cure for cancer or world peace and she's just waiting for the right moment to release it. At the very least, we can hope for public-domain plans for a time transducing capacitor!"

A cure for world peace, indeed. One can only hope.

Nuke from orbit...

Hmmmm....your intelligence operatives make open statements like that and you still have the gall to deny the secret scripting labs eh? I'll say one thing El've got some nerve sir!

Nice work with the webarchive stuff. Nice to know that some whisper still remains of that fabled web-site from yesteryear.

The Wayback Machine...

Still no noise on the ressurection front, so I thought I'd dig into the distant past and see what Psidonia looked like. Evolution has been kind (despite the apparent lack of activity here).

Is there anything in the above that is wrong? Do some of the statements make your blood boil? Do you want to give someone a piece of your mind? After all, you know more about these issues than almost anyone, and people should be listening to you!

Alas, you have yet to take the time to log in or register yourself.

Go on, join up! Become a citizen of Psidonia and let these nimrods know what's really going on!

(If you're having trouble figuring it out, there are log in and registration controls over there on the left side of the, your other left. That's it, click the pretty buttons...)
