Greetings and Felicitations Children of Technology




What was the first website you ever visited? Mine was majorleaguebaseball.com. It took 15 minutes for my brother and I to download a picture of Gary Sheffield which we printed out in an inkjet printer and hung on his door. In that regard, finding old websites made before the Squarespace era kind of reminds me of looking at zines.

Oftentimes they’re made lovingly by a fan, not a professional, and utilize primitive layout techniques, fonts (and color combinations) to convey a message. Here we have an incredible Carnivore fan site featuring an extensive fan bio, song lyrics, streaming songs (!) in the form of .WAV files and that phenomenal landing page. Big ups to the guy who made this and is keeping that domain going. “5 Billion Dead.”
