    the film adaptation for the book World War Z (which i love)

    I want to make my own news/blog site about the film.
    I've already reg'd the domain www.wwzfilm.com (theres nothing on it right now) and want to setup wordpress on it. Heres my problem. The theme.

    i can build my own now, ive learned enough of the system/php etc. but i suck at designing. anyone know of a theme that matches the theme of the movie?

    i use the freshnews theme for most of our blogs, it's pretty simple and clean. It's not free, but I'm sure you could find a copy of it....

    go to www.smashingmagazine.com and scroll down toward the bottom of the right column labeled "All Posts". look for "Wordpress Themes 1, 2, 3, 4..."

    lmao I JUST ordered that book off amazon yesterday! Been wanting to read it forever but just kept forgetting about it. Didn't even know there was going to be a movie...this may be the one time in history I read a book before seeing the movie adaption so then I can be the one that says..."the movie sucked, read the book"! lol.

    I've seen some great tuts for making cool "bloody and gross" text effects for the logos but can't remember where. I'll try to check my history and see if I can find them for you.
