7-26-2021 Old-Site of the Day: Antique & 19th Century Cameras "Before photographic apparatus was made of plastic and metal, beautiful cameras were hand-crafted of finely polished woods, brass and leather. The golden age of wood cameras lasted from the birth of photography in 1839 to the early part of the 20th century." Since 1998.

7-21-21 Old-Site of the Day: Flea Bags A webcomic from 2002. From the about page: '"Fleabags" is loosley based on a psuedo-comic series I started when I was ten years old called "Sheepy & Sam". For the sake of background info, let me tell you a little about "Sheepy & Sam". Sheepy was an Old English Sheep dog, and Sam was a German Shepard. Much like "Fleabags", the comic [which I drew in a notebook for myself only, where each page was one panel of the strip] was about the life of two dogs. Weird things happened then, as now. Just a lot of crazy mishaps and such. So what was different? Besides the character names and designs, there was two cats in "Sheepy & Sam", only one in "Fleabags". The owner was never found in "Sheepy & Sam", and there was most certainly no rat [Basil is based on my rats]. The central ideas, however, is the same. Goofy exploits of animals. Simple, yet sweet.'

Old-Site of the Day: BrainEater.com "The beginning of Braineater.com came in the early part of 1996, when I was working for a small computer center in New Jersey. I had just met the woman who would become my wife three years later. At that time our relationship was in its first ambiguous stages; since she lived over 300 miles from me, I suddenly found myself feeling very lonely while she was away. At the time, I was also house-sitting for a friend who was traveling overseas, so I was all alone in an unfamiliar house, feeling sorry for myself. That's the only excuse I have for doing something nobody should ever do: I got drunk and watched a Bruno Mattei double feature. ... It all seems like a bad dream now. I actually sat myself down in front of the tube and inflicted first Night of the Zombies, then The Other Hell on my poor, beer-soaked brain. Miraculously, I survived, though it took me over a week to flush the seamy residue out of my soul. I have never been the same since." If you can't guess from that description, this is a site which reviews bad movies.
