Title: Homeland Security Orchestra
Description: My bro's band's website
Hyperboy - July 25, 2005 03:24 AM (GMT)
I still have to work out some bugs and finish some of those pages. My brother's other band's site can be seen here
. The one I'm making a website for is more of a side project....I think....check out both. He has some good music.
EDIT: I only made the animated one. So, don't get confused.
Dark Angel - July 25, 2005 03:26 AM (GMT)
So you made those both?!?
Hyperboy - July 25, 2005 04:00 AM (GMT)
NONONONO....I only made the animated one.
Dark Angel - July 25, 2005 04:04 AM (GMT)
Oh ok. I was about to say, you have ALOT of extra time. XD
IgnorantIQ - July 25, 2005 04:05 AM (GMT)
Well, it's not much to see, but the stuff so far rocks. Nice job on the animating! (I 'specially like the robot, he looks so cool.)

Whoa did I inspire HYPERBOY to do something!!! SWEET!!
Hyperboy - July 25, 2005 05:32 AM (GMT)
haha....what? If you mean Gorillaz, then I guess it kinda did.
EDIT: Oh, you mean the topic. Yeah, I guess you did. I forgot to spam the site.

Wow you have gotten better at art. I can't wait to see how the 4th episode turns out.
jpt1989 - July 25, 2005 09:03 AM (GMT)
I dunno. I like the artistic style of Hyperboy, but yeah the animated one looks awesome.
nix - July 25, 2005 02:15 PM (GMT)
While your style of art totally rocks Gene, you might need to learn some more about actionscript and other web stuff'ems. I only viewed the site in FF, as I don't give a piddly about what it looks like in IE anymore. I code to standards, so IE can go suck donkey balls for all I care now, but it was seriously messed up in Firefox. Also, on the contact page, I'd suggest you make something more than just a mailto link. There are tons of premade PHP scripts out there for mailing to someone, and if you need any help, I'm always available to help you out with that. Also, there aren't any back buttons or anything like that. Granted, there is a browser back, but some people can't figure that out.
Oh wait, I decided to check it out in IE. Much better, thus proving that IE works wonders in Quirks mode. hoo-rah. Great site, but totally sucky in firefox. And to me, since I actually do this for a living, have to say that the site sucks. Artwork: Great! Accessibilty: Sucks. Just code to standard, and it'll work out great.

Nix is right, you would see a few things wrong on Firefox, I haven't tried using IE, cause it gives me way too many ads once opened. And it's hard to get rid of em.
Besides the few bugs that can be seen on FF, it's awesome!
stupidity18 - July 25, 2005 03:54 PM (GMT)
Wow that animated one was sweet!
Hyperboy - July 25, 2005 04:12 PM (GMT)
Blame my brother for the accesibility. I just do the Flash stuff....
My bro didn't want anything more on the Contact page. Just an e-mail thing.
Handicapped: Hyperboy's art style is the same....but future projects of mine will be better drawn.
2-D - July 25, 2005 09:26 PM (GMT)
Graaaah!!! damn popup blocker wont let me use the link I have to cut and paste it.
So Gene if they do any music videos....... you'll be animating them?
Hyperboy - July 25, 2005 11:34 PM (GMT)
Yep. I'll make one eventually. They haven't recorded anything yet, so I can't, either way.
Captain - July 25, 2005 11:46 PM (GMT)
why have a site if they havent recorded anything yet?
Hyperboy - July 26, 2005 12:54 AM (GMT)
To promote the band. To announce show times and places. To get people's attention.
Frankly, why NOT?
Captain - July 26, 2005 01:22 AM (GMT)
o, forgot about all those. woops :D
stupidity18 - July 26, 2005 02:29 PM (GMT)
Hey gene have you listen to their songs?
nix - July 26, 2005 03:12 PM (GMT)
I thought he just said they haven't recorded anything yet.
Hyperboy - July 26, 2005 04:15 PM (GMT)
First of all, yeah. Hard to listen to something when it's not recorded.
But, I have heard some works in progress.
My bro's other band already have a demo.
2-D - July 28, 2005 12:14 AM (GMT)
They should get an LP made by one of those hole in the wall record labels. That is basicly how the Gorillaz got big.
Hyperboy - July 28, 2005 01:19 AM (GMT)
That's what they're trying to do....I think......
crandrew1242 - July 29, 2005 02:45 AM (GMT)
Man... That sign is freaking awesome!
Hyperboy - July 29, 2005 02:59 AM (GMT)
stupidity18 - July 29, 2005 08:05 PM (GMT)
Wow your drawing skills really improved!! :hyperboy:
Hyperboy - July 29, 2005 09:10 PM (GMT)
2-D - July 29, 2005 10:49 PM (GMT)
How did you draw it and then use it in flash?..........the same way as in hperboy?
Hyperboy - July 29, 2005 11:28 PM (GMT)
Yeah....I drew it and animated it in Flash.
stupidity18 - July 29, 2005 11:40 PM (GMT)
Your making a cartoon of this right because it will be awesome I think!!! :hyperboy:
Hyperboy - July 29, 2005 11:48 PM (GMT)
I will make a video eventually.
NES-dude - July 30, 2005 02:31 PM (GMT)
NES-dude gives homeland security orchestra a 4/5.
Hyperboy - July 30, 2005 03:51 PM (GMT)
And that is a high number. Thanks!
SkyeFyre - July 30, 2005 04:27 PM (GMT)
Until I hear something (Unless I missed something in an earlier post which I will check later [I just woke up and I want breakfast]) I cannot rate them.
Hyperboy - July 30, 2005 04:53 PM (GMT)
Well, what about the actual site?
SkyeFyre - July 30, 2005 05:08 PM (GMT)
Fancy site, however I don't like complete flash sites. Too slow. Everything on the net is going bright and fancy. I just want a plain page to get the information I want. I will say though that I am impressed with the site. I'm just not much of a flash guy. (Maybe because I don't know how to do it and am too busy usually to learn it).
Hyperboy - July 30, 2005 06:41 PM (GMT)
Well, thanks.....my bro wanted a Flash site.........I feel you can do more with a Flash site rather than HTML....but, that's because I don't know much HTML.
2-D - July 31, 2005 02:00 AM (GMT)
Do you know any CSS at all?
Hyperboy - August 3, 2005 04:39 AM (GMT)
I don't know any programming at all....except a little HTML.
2-D - August 5, 2005 11:21 PM (GMT)
I commend thee HTML is one of the most time consumng and agitating branches of programming..... I don't know a whole lot of HTML but I know a LOT of CSS.
