Can’t… Stop… Watching…

One of the things I love about this cheerfully insane page is that but for the load times, this is something that could have been approximated with software dating back to the early nineties.

We sometimes neglect the fact that when we graduate from one generation of technologies to the next, that doesn’t mean we’ve exhausted the creative possibilities of the previous ones. The advent of CSS or PHP didn’t negate the inventiveness of something like this brain-scrambling oldie, for example, it just opened the door to new shenanigans.

Creativity is backwards compatible!

[Oh WAIT! Chuck in the comments points out that the same artist has a Webcomic! THAT’S probably what led me there. Definitely check out this equally long-loading but nevertheless great comic!]

  1. Whoa…I was caught looking at that thing for about 2 minutes!

  2. Did you see the webcomic that’s linked from that “cheerfully insane page”? It’s a wonderful thing, an animated comic book where the right and left arrows move you from one frame to the next. I usually don’t like not being able to scan forward or backward, but here you could see just the first 1/2 inch of the previous and the next frame, and that satisfied my urge to look ahead while keeping the future a tantalizing mystery.
