ALL NEW DERREN BROWN WEBSITE LAUNCHED TOMORROW, SOMETIME.

Posted in Derren Brown News

Posted by Derren Brown News July 1, 2010 at 3:29 pm

Yes you read it right and it’s only taken us a whole friggin year. Lots of pushing back and forth between TV companies, managers, copyright lawyers, human rights groups, gay activists, animal welfare research scientists and an army of Puerto Rican immigration officials has laboured the slow task of amassing all the content and arranging it in a format suitable for your new iPad, HTC phone or Commodore 64. Well now it’s ready.

There’s a stack of new content and stuff to browse – we’ll also be adding things as we go along. We will be on the look out for those of you who have stuff we’ve missed, radio interviews, paper clippings, nuggets of joy or long suppressed images of DB’s “bad hair” phase.

We will also happily entertain those of you who are vigilant, well versed and keen-eyed to point out the mistakes, glitches and bugs you come across. We’re even open to the Grammar-Nazi Clan still working on Windows ME who wish death upon us for a misplaced Hungarian umlaut on some of the fan pages we have nothing to do with.

For those of you who are more original thinkers who want to suggest content such as an interactive hamster suppressant or things such as this are welcome to send in ideas and we will consider any on site proposal no matter how utterly ridiculous. Best one wins a bunch of stuff I found in a room no one knew existed here at Brown Towers. I (Phillis) will be tweeting the best and worst ones and may reward both.

Ideas, feedback and insults should be aimed at Phillis Dorris the site CONTENT admin – or tweet me @phillisdorris. Glitches and bugs should be sent to the TECHNICAL admin Abeo – or tweet her on @abeodbart, but please check you’ve spotted a genuine mistake as “my hard drive is full of porn” is really not our issue.

There’s no official launch time as the servers hate spikes. So we’ll open up bits over the day and allow you all access in an orderly fashion. We hope you enjoy.

Edit: Site is now Live, visit derrenbrown.co.uk

Ooh, ‘citing! It’s been a long time coming πŸ˜€

If you need someone to view and test the site on various gadgets, including the iPad, feel free to send me these gadgets, and I will be more than happy to do so πŸ˜€

“gay activists”

Did you have to? I get sick of gay, gay, gay as a joke every god damn day.

When I no longer have to physically defend myself (on average twice a week) just because I’m gay I might find this sort of thing funny.

“we will consider any on site proposal no matter how utterly ridiculous” Well then. A challange has been set! So how about a flash game with DB going around and throwing tennis rackets at psychics who get ghosts to do the thriller danse and shoot lemons from a cannon made of gummy sweets and used syringes. In a funny hat.

Applause goes out to the hard workers behind the site. If Abeo is running the technical side of things on the new site then I’m sure things will run as smoothly as butter. Props also to Phillis for entertaining us. She can turn an ordinary post about a new site into a paragraph sure to produce giggles, LOLs, ROFLs, and any other abbreviations used to indicate laughter. Also cheers to the hilarious Coops-who I hope can incorporate some Family Guy clips being paired with Derren’s Stewie impersonation into the site. And of course congratulations to Derren Brown himself, a website like the upcoming one is a mile marker. I don’t know of any others that are behind this new site. I suppose hearty applause just goes out to all at Brown Towers as well as to the fans who keep sites like these alive.

Funny coincidence – I was just getting all nostalgic recently about my Commodore 64 which I sold probably two decades ago. *sigh*

I know this is a little unrelated, but isn’t it Coops’ birthday on the 3rd? Has the excitement over the new site made everyone forget?

The new site looks OK in Chrome on Ubuntu but is all over the place in Firefox on Ubuntu.

Msg from Abeo: Should be fixed now, can you give it a go and see?


July 2, 2010 at 2:39 pm

@david – I used to use a Vic 20, thought it was the best thing around at the time!

The new DB site is wonderful. Very user friendly and easy to navigate. Well done to all involved! πŸ˜€

I think the problem in Firefox may be font size – if you increase the font size using the browser settings it breaks the styling – pushes stuff across and down. Not sure if Firefox has a larger default or if my browser settings did it.

Msg from Abeo: Should be fixed now, can you give it a go and see?
