Just some weird and obscure stuff I've found on the internet

jpop80ss.blogspot.com

A huge collection of 70's, 80's, and 90's japanese music. City pop, synthpop, and funky fusion music galore!

This site is such a big rabbit hole to go down. I kid you not I spent half of 2015 and all of 2016 listening to stuff from here and posting songs on /jp/.


geocities.com/lilmoonraven/globelady2_nn4.html

A showcase of someone's geocities animations, it looks like they are edits of one Marilyn Radzat's work. Unfortunately this looks like it was the only page of them archived.


demon-sushi.com/warning/

The final fantasy house page:

So this page details the events of the 'final fantasy house' and it servers as a warning of the cults doings. It is maintained by one of the survivors of said events, he is referred to as "Zack".

The Final Fantasy house was this messed up Internet cult, that pulled in young and troubled individuals claiming that they were 'soul bonded' to characters in the video game Final fantasy 7. The leader of the cult "Jenova", or "Jenny nova" and her love interest at the time "Hojo" would groom people off of IRCs etc into living with them, and eventually supporting all of Jenova's bills and petty expenditures. The living situations were awful and filthy, and the social environment was often hostile.

If you want to see a video summary of the Final fantasy house this one does a pretty good job. The site is much much more in depth, and has backed up live journals, emails and chat-logs.

I think what skeeves me about about reading about this is that it almost feels like something that could have happens to me, given certain circumstances. It definitely an important cautionary tale.


kaossedgeofficial.com

This website was posted by Daniel Lopatin (Oneohtrix point never) in promotion of his new album 'Garden of Delete', claiming that this band was the inspiration for said album. Really it was just made by Lopatin for fun, and it showcases his sence of humor and style.

The site is for the 90s hypergrundge band Kaoss Edge, and details their supposed albums and history as well as a lot of cursed imagery and hidden links.


exitmundi.nl

A big collection of end of the world scenarios, and their supposed dates. These scenarious are all written in a sorta humorous way.


wayslower.tumblr.com

This is a rare tumblr, it's owned by Daniel Lopatin and Joel Ford for their project "Games" later renamed "Ford and Lopatin". Lot's of rare stuff related to their collab, I'm a huge fan! This websites name "Skumsoft", is actually in reference to their first track on "Channel Pressure".


pilotredsun.tumblr.com

I don't think it's well known that pilotredsun has a tumblr. He uploads screenshots of videos he's working on before they get on youtube, as well as other stuff.


soundbible.com/tags-bloody.html

Sound bible is just an old and cheesy site to get "free" sound effects from. I was going through this site to find some soundeffects for my high school senior project and I came across this tag "bloody". It's full of pretty uncomfortable sounds.


mebious.neocities.org

Another Serial Experiments Lain fan site. This site has descriptions and analysis of the show's philosophy and episodes. The site also contains the Serial Experiments Lain manga "Nightmare of Fabrication" if you haven't read that yet.


windows93.net

An inbrowser parody of windows 95/98. It has a bunch of actually working software, games and emulators, which is awesome.


allanime.org

This is a very old anime fan page, complete with wallpapers, japanese lessons, polls, and awful fan submitted art and fan fiction. I'm really fond of the styling of this website. Apparently the forums are still active (as of 2020), abet very slow. It looks like it get just a couple post every couple years.


Wired Sound For Wired People

Speaking of the faaux website, I should add it here as well. This website is a collection monochrome pink html art peices concerning lain, from the anime 'Serial Experiments Lain'. There are also a few pretty interesting lain unity games as well. If you haven't already seen Serial Experiments Lain i'd highly recomend it.


Terminal 00

This is a very surreal website. It functions as a huge maze of links that slowly detail a story and/or possibly some kind of ARG, I'm not really sure yet. The art and literature inside are delightful abstract.

I don't think I've ever seen art "things" that look quite like this. I had initially described it as "fractal imagery", but after talking to someone in the associated discord server, I found that they the art peices "pixel ornaments". I was also given this link, showing how to make said imagery..

I suppose the website's design is a little like the fauux serial experiments lain website, but kicked up a whole level stylistically, as well as being much much more non linear. The story's concept, as far as I've observed, feels like something very far in the future. Like post several society's merge into collective consciousnesses, or maybe very old AIs, interacting in whatever is left of our decaying technology infrastructure. It's very novel.


Windows 95's Subliminal Messages

Bill Gates dead man, miss him miss him miss him


bootlegbart.com

A blog all about bootleg simpsons paraphernalia. They actually use to sell bootleg bart shirts and stuff here, a shame I missed out.


Don't have a box new


Good Morning Mr. Orwell (1984)

This was an art piece made by Nam June Paik, that aired live via satellite on new years day, 1984. It includes some abstract video segmants, and performances from Oingo Boingo, Peter Gabriel, and the Thompson Twins, aswell as some others I don't know so well. I've linked the youtube upload of it, but i've known youtube to take down stuff for dumb reasons, so i've uploaded it as well. Also, heres the Wiki page with more info on it.


junkup.onmitsu.jp/contents/libretto

Not really that weird honestly, it's just a Japanese website detailing modding/fixing, and then installing Damn Small Linux on a fairly old laptop. I dig how the site looks though, obviously enough.


ryuhanapress.com/ed

Edward Snowden's teenage anime homepage, at least it would certainly seems so. Some person posted this in a 4chan thread I was reading a while back. The website looks like something him and his then friends put together. The picture on the right is on of his mock album adverts from his page, pretty hillarious.


tokyo2000.com

So this is a pretty strange site. From all I guess, it looks like at some point it was a BBS, but has now completely been overrun by spam bots. I couldn't really discern what the BBS was originally for, translating what Japanese that's there comes out as nonsense, or ads. I also don't really know what the image on the parent site is suppose to be (a render of some kind of building obviously), and reverse image searching doesn't yeild anything. I accidentally came across this site looking for a reasonable quality download of this album somewhere. The visitor counter does seem to work. I think the first time I came here the counter was in the low 1000s roughly


gerardenterprises.com/masks2.html


Just an old website that sells latex masks. I found this site when I just randomly encountered the picture of the frog mask in a google image search. I have no idea if this "Antony Gerard" still sells these mask, but I really hope so. The parent website has a bunch of other similar links (haunted houses, latex hands, noses and feet, costume stuff and other things of Antony's work)
