- I looked up at the mass of signs and stars in the night sky and laid myself open for the first time to the benign indifference of the world.
So it's been a while, and a lot has changed since the last update. Life got in the way and I abandoned this project for a while, but it looks like the pendulum is coming back around. In this update I've taken a lot of the bloat out of the website- I spent too long creating the framework of a website I forgot to actually give it any content. I've removed all redundancies- index.hmtl will house the blog, and any other pages I come to think of will be added to the sidebar later.
+ Overhauled the site, retconned update 1.0
+ First blog entry
Big update! I figured out how to add a sidebar. I was stuck on the sidebar for a while, not really making any progress, but once I got it worked out I finished it in a couple days. Today I finally got around to creating a couple of the "sub- pages" so the links actually lead somewhere, and now it's pretty much just down to filling out the different pages. Tomorrow I'll probably work on filling out morbidstuff.html and the home page.
+Literally the entire sidebar
+Backgrounds and links for bio, the_hackerzone.html, ostentation location, and hell (artwork on works and hell by Pieter Bruegel the Elder)
+Began "morbidstuff.html" and homepage
As it turns out, HTML is weird. Progress on this site might be a lot slower than anticipated because I truly do not understand this space- age stuff. I mean this is actually a nightmare. I found a bunch of neat backgrounds and buttons to use when I figure it all out though.
I made this website as a way to track the media I consume, literature, film, music, etc, just so I can stop saying I want to write about these things and actually get around to doing it. The reason I chose NeoCities over any other site is I dislike the lack of creative input in template- based blog sites/ website creators, like Nix or Blogspot. I wanted something I could design entirely myself, stuck in 1998 when the WWW wasn't dominated by corporations setting the standard for what a website needs to look like. Clean and easily- digestible is boring and abandoning gif vomit was a mistake, but also I wanted a sort of shrine to the early internet of the 90s and early 00's, as well as the music and culture of the time. I hope this site can act as a time machine, in a small way.
