I built and ran this website between 2000 and 2001, combining passion for popular music and programming. It was listed by MTV's now defunct MusicNewswire as one of the then nascent web's top twenty sources, alongside Billboard and VH1. The most exciting part of it — for a 13/14-year-old excited by new music — was receiving scores of pre-release CDs from record companies. The entire project was written entirely from scratch (frameworks and libraries were not the norm back then!) in PHP linking to a MySQL database, with HTML as well as a little CSS and JavaScript for the frontend; the code is available here.

Eminem To Begin Shooting Film Next Month
29 September 2001 | 13:40:51 GMT/UTC

Eminem will begin shooting his debut feature-film next month in DetroitEminem will begin shooting his debut feature-film next month in Detroit.

In it he plays a fictional character called 'Jimmy'. Ananova reports that the film, which has the working title of Untitled Detroit Project, is loosely based on the rapper's own life. 'Jimmy' is a confused hip-hop addict searching for an identity.

The film will be directed by the Oscar-winner behind LA Confidential and Wonder Boys: Curtis Hanson. In May of this year the director insisted that the film would not be based on Eminem's life: "This story will only be as good as Eminem's performance, not how good he is as a musical performer but how good he is dramatically."
