Firstly, hope no one thought this was my site. No way. I'm guessing Joshua
Davis, et al did it. (y'know, praystation).

Secondly, I wanted to know if anyone got as annoyed with it as I did before
I said anything. I am a pretty saavy surfer and was annoyed to no end with
he overwrought navigation. Not too long ago the ill-fated boo.com was
singled out as a bad example of e-commerce. Too much ooh-ahh. While Barney's
isn't an e-commerce site, it serves somewhat the same purpose (basically an
online catolog) and there's no way in hell I'd try to navigate through this
thing to find clothes.

Sorry if this is sacreligious to pick on praystation's work, but, well,
