I miss Links pages. I've found so many great sites through old school web rings and link pages, so I decided I needed to include one here. I've tried to organize the links by grouping them with similar sites the best that I can. This page will probably always be under construction since I'll be adding and removing sites every so often.

Last Updated: 9.11.2021

Brandon's Horror – This is my other blog where I review horror films.

Friends:
The Wrestling Insomniac – I write occasionally for this site and it is my favorite wrestling website on the net. Lots of great forgotten history and wrestling show recaps.

Random Thoughts and Ponderings – A personal blog of my friend Michael's, who also runs The Wrestling Insomniac. He writes about movies, pop culture, and life not too unlike my site.

The Pastor Abides – Another friend of mine's personal blog.

Matt Brady Photography

Dino's Journal – One of the first sites that attracted me to Write.as. Dino's site is a meticulously organized personal website with posts about cars, family, video games, and more.

Rebeccatoh.co – Rebecca is a photographer who's blog I stumbled upon after she posted one of my posts. I love her content. It's simple and her life views seem to line up quite evenly with my own.

Pikapal's Blog – A long time friend of mine's personal blog. She writes about pop culture, retro stuff, and her personal life.

Eli(sha) – Another blog that I enjoy. It hasn't been updated in a while, but I always enjoy Elisha's writing.

Stacy's Blog Has Got It Going On – Short, simple recaps of movies and TV shows that Stacy has watched recently.

Hardcore Zen – Buddhist teacher Brad Warner's blog.

Same Old Zen – Another Buddhist blog I enjoy.

Dinosaur Dracula – I've followed Matt's writing since his X-E days back in the late 90's/early 2000's. I love to let a few posts build up and then bulk read them. I'm also a fan of his podcast, The Purple Stuff Podcast.

Retro-Daze – I've written for this site off and on over the years. It's not in it's prime, but the archives are full of great posts and occasionally a gem will come out.

Retro Reading Time – A site full of out of print novelizations from various 80's and 90's properties.

Nintendo Life – I love their Nintendo news coverage and find their reviews are pretty spot on.

Bloody-Disgusting – A great horror movie news site with usually terrible reviews. Worth visiting for the news updates though.

Blu Ray Release Dates – A breakdown of the upcoming blu-ray release dates.

One of the thing that stands out when I think back to the early web design is the fan pages that existed. It seemed like everyone and their mother had a fan page dedicated to some TV show, most likely from the following list: Dawson's Creek, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Charmed, Roswell, or The X-Files. These pages were full of love, strange graphics, and all sorts of crazed fandom. I watched Charmed and Dawson's Creek, but the other shows I came to admire later in life after these websites were old news. So a hobby of mine is to perform some digital archeaology and dig up the bones of these old fansites and explore what the author admired about the show, was thinking, or writing. Sadly, pretty much all of these sites died between 1997-2003, but parts of them remain as a snapshot of pop culture for all to see if you know where to look.

Below is a sort of directory for old websites still online. I'll slowly be organizing them by topic and adding more as I come across them. I also plan to save some graphics and other design elements as sort of a tribute to these past fansites. They may not look like much now, but at one time, these sites were important parts of people's lives. I hope by shining some light onto some of these, I can honor the sites and the hard work that went into creating them.
