I first learned HTML back in the 90’s. I wanted to use it to build a site for my ZZT “game company” Ultraware, but I didn’t think I was ready. For a test run I decided to make a site about Pinky and The Brain. There were a lot of fan sites around but I went a different route. I decided to create a “conspiracy” site that suggested big pop culture events (shows, movies, etc.) were all attempts by the mousy duo to take over the world.
It pretty much sucks. I know it. But you can see little bits of who I am now in there somewhere. I realized Tripod was taking down old site so I decided to put it here for posterity. The original site lived at braindom.tripod.com. It might still be there.
And here’s the weird Baby Sun animation (complete with watermark):
I’ve made a bunch of websites since then. Some good, most bad, but this one will always hold a special place in my heart. And keep me humble.
