Website Name Generator

This movie combines a simple random name generator with a pseudo "Star Wars" style text scrolling effect.

The names are constructed "Mad Libs" style by combining the word "The" with a random adjective, random modifier and random noun, each of which comes from an array of candidate words.

The text is scrolled to the "back" by using setTimer() and converting that value to an animation timer variable "r" which is used to control position and alpha-blending.
