The Space Jam website
Well, this one is an honorary and terrible first entry. This website has all the perks, crazy bright colors, a movie topic that kicks up the nostalgia, and some flashing gifs. If that isn’t a …. gift, I don’t know what is.
The World’s Worst Website
This website is purposefully bad. Welcome to the worst possible website on purpose, and if you click on the link, turn down your sound because the music plays automatically.

The horror of spinning, flashing, fluorescent everything.
The first search engine in all of it’s delightful ‘pre-historic’ tackiness
This is not only one of the oldest privately held websites still on the web, it also gives you a little backstory as well. Learn about the 90’s on the web if you need a little info to jog your memory.
Home Improvement Fan Club
Well this is one that I have to link through on “The Wayback Machine” at archive.org – Which is an amazing resource that allows you to view web pages in all of their awful glory back in the day. I’m not here to bash these websites, I remember how fun it was creating a website when I was 11… at the library before I’d go home and watch Home Improvement. The nostalgia factor here is pretty thick. Wow… Take a look at these images.
I think my next web design project for fun could entail creating a weird throwback to when the web was really a wild west of strange spinning gifs, horrifyingly bright clashing colors, tons of pixelation, and whatever you could get away with, with the very limited parameters the web could process back then. Any suggestions for what it could be about?
