Tangled Web

I've found the Capital Region's most annoying web site ---and friends, that's saying a lot. The Palace Theatre's hideous mess of a homepage looks like a bad flash animation shooting game, with pictures of upcoming acts crisscrossing the screen like mechanical ducks. Roll your mouse over the images and you get text that's nearly impossible to read, but that doesn't matter, because what you really want is to left click and see if you can take out the Moscow Ballet. Web designers should learn that a little of this stuff goes a long way ---especially for clients trying to project a classy image.

EDITORS WARNING: Do not visit the Palace web site if you are prone to epileptic seizures.
