timeforcake: An oldie but goodie site & 4 links
November 18, 2012
Do you remember that 1990s movie Space Jam? Yeah, I don’t really remember it either. Here’s a quick recap for you: Space Jam is a movie from 1996 in which Michael Jordan agrees to help a bunch of Looney Tunes characters play a game of inter-galactic basketball.Why am I telling you this?Because the original 1996 movie site for Space Jam is still live! Yes, you read that correctly. The 16-year-old website is still alive and kicking and every bit as entertaining as you’d expect. It’s pure 1990s website awesomeness, complete with red text on a black background, confusing navigation, frames, lots of instructions to click on images you didn’t even know were links, and a repeating background that was surely designed to produce headaches and hurt visitors’ eyes.Go ahead.
