WHAT IS COUP2K.COM? THE BBBR BUNKER? BBBR RESISTANCE?
Have you ever gotten a pet, say, a little kitten, and named it "Dinky", only to have it grow up to be a 25-pound beach ball with legs? Well, the naming of cats is a difficult matter, and so is the naming of websites. Especially websites that start off tiny, and end up huge. So, coup2k.com is the final (I hope) domain name for the BUSH BROTHERS BANANA REPUBLIC, a site I started about two weeks after the 2000 General Presidential Election. Originally on GeoCities, my personal little corner of the Internet for blowing off steam about the election debacle has become a gathering place for activists and dissenters, hell-raisers, and the perpetually politically cranky -- an internet home for people like me. Welcome to the BBBR Bunker.
HOW IS THIS PLACE LAID OUT? HOW BIG IS IT?
Basically, the BBBR Bunker has the following areas, which are listed vertically in the left-hand Table of Contents (TOC) on each page of the main site, which is around 300 pages long:
REPORTS FROM THE FRONT (New content posted by date*)
ARCHIVES (Content By Date)
GENERAL ISSUE: Shop for Uniforms (Stuff you can buy at CafePress)
GENERAL ISSUE: Do-It-Yourself Art (Stuff you can make yourself)
NEW RECRUITS (Frequently Asked Questions, Greatest Hits, Minimums)
COMMUNICATIONS (E-Mail Me, Join E-Groups, Search the Site)
MARCHING ORDERS (Activism HQ, Archives, Action Calendar)
TROOP MORALE (Humor, Jokes, Songs, and Bush-isms)
ALLIED FORCES (Links to like-minded sites)
COUP2K INTEL/ENEMY DISINFORMATION (Early Reconnaissance)
THE AIDE DE CAMP (Websites the BBBR deals with on a regular basis)
*Originally, I put all new content in the room in which it most belonged, but not only was that almost impossible to decide in some cases, but it also made surfing a pain, once the site started to get LARGE. So, all new content is up front in chronological order (going from the newest to the oldest -- so when you hit NEXT, you're going back in time). Nothing really ever goes away on the BBBR, it just gets moved a little further down the line. And if something (like a song parody) definitely belongs in another area of the bunker, too, then I will try to post it in both places.
