a new webring for the oldstyle web (Jun 27, 2022)

My friend Brad “made a Thing!” And I”m kinda tickled about it:

Retroweb Ring

A webring for non-commercial personal pages be they static homepages or blogs or non-commercial directories that list the 1995 – 2005 style Web pages. No hate, no resumes, no third party advertising.

Needless to say, I submitted bulltown.2022 as soon as I knew about the webring. It was a good fit and I”m hoping to see some other retrostyle sites come onboard. Like Brad said, “it’s kind of lonely” at the moment. If the shoe fits, please apply to be included!

extraordinary satirical art, imo (May 25, 2022)

There’s more than the amazing collage that meets the eye. I’m still exploring the artist’s in depth details, a long list of links pertaining to all the slogans, memes, and images used in the installation. I wasn’t going to admit it but I did sing along with it too.

In an era of Emoji being the fastest growing visual system of communication, the video adopts animated GIF’s “looped, extended and repeated” format, and scrutinizes how personal political expressions are being produced, replicated and mutated in online conversations.
