Last Post of 2005: Secrets Revealed

Filed in Cult Of Pop 2.0

To close off the old year, let’s go over the three Easter Eggs I’ve placed on this website…

Hidden line of code in "Momoko O Momoko". If you look at the source code of my ode to Momoko, you’ll find an alternate closing line for one of the stanzas. It was a funny line, but not the mood I wanted to achieve in the poem – so putting it into the HTML was the compromise that came to mind.

Minor Hoax in the "Shibata Ayumi or Nanba An" Quiz. So "#3. Girl Drinking Juice" is neither Ayumi nor An – it’s Aki of SweetS. I had been watching the 5 Elements DVD heavilyand was stunned at how this one shot of Aki made her a dead ringer for Nanba An. Of course, equating a U15 idol to an AV idol didn’t seem a great thing to do at the time, so I just decided to slip it into this blog entry to see if anybody would point it out to me. Nobody did.

Hidden Addition to "Momoko O Momoko". For my Thanksgiving stunt-blogging, I ended with a poem to Sweet Chinami. But if you highlight the blank area between the end of the poem and the start of reader comments, you’ll find a hidden text link called "And here’s an extra… " that will lead to a "Momoko O Momoko" reprise with three new stanzas. I was torn between closing the Thanksgiving series with a Chinami poem or Momoko poem, and this seemed a way of having my cake and eating it too.

I hadn’t planned on putting in any Easter Eggs in this blog, but they occurred out of happenstance. That said, knowing me, you can expect a few more such surprises in 2006.

So that’s it for now! I’ll see you next year!

    I still can’t find this one. My eyes hurt when I start scanning through the code. Would you care to post it please? 🙂

  2. After this couplet,

    “Your keitai caused you such undue angst
    Love can be brutal, bereft of thanks. ”

    There’s the code which reads,

    Alternate last line “And all I want’s your hand in my pants.”

    So… You can see now how it kinda ruins the whole mood of the poem, but is just too good a line to forget.

    No wonder I had trouble with picture #3. If only I had known SweetS better. Curses!
