A new comic series we're launching today in the Incredible Doom universe (that Metafilter has been so kind to!), Eternal September is an intimate, harrowing series about teenagers navigating the wild, dangerous days of the early web. You can read Issue 1 free online today, and you'll be able to read the entire series for free as it's posted to followers. No ads, no trackers, no middlemen, we're going back to our roots on the open web. [more inside]
YOU (September 1994 – June 1996) is an autobiographical short story that attempts to recreate what it felt like being a 16 to 18 year old at school in the 90s.
A gut-wrenching coming of age story of unlikely alliances, magic, daring escapes, young love, and crime sprees, all squeezed over 2400 baud modems. We're so proud to be finally releasing the entire 6-issue print and web comic Incredible Doom free for everyone to read online, no strings attached. We also made a new little video to give you an idea of what it's like. [more inside]
Today my friend Matt and I are finally launching a new web & print comic series we’ve been working on for almost a year. It’s about teenagers in the '90s getting into life & death situations over the early Internet. [more inside]
Watch out! Listen! BAD GUYS FROM VIDEO GAMES somehow joined up to form a 90s boy band. I just wrote, composed, arranged, and produced their entire debut album. In Big Bad Bosses - Power Overwhelming, caricatures of Bowser, Ganondorf, Sephiroth, and Dr. Eggman sing honest, soulful songs about how even their terrifying fury can't protect them from the big questions in life. It's been #1 on the iTunes comedy charts for a week, and I couldn't wait to post it to MeFi Projects! [more inside]
This is a behemoth of a playlist I put together, focusing primarily (but not exclusively) on the alt/indie/college side of the 90's experience. It's 800+ tracks, about 55 hours, and features plenty of songs that tend to get overlooked in the "remember these 90's hits?" pieces that pop up from time to time. Not definitive by any means, and extremely subjective, but it's a decent chunk of curated history in one convenient place. Also it's a fully chronological playlist, on a week-by-week level. So a track released on May 7, 1994 will come before a track released on May 14, 1994. Time and research went into this. Think of it as the Boyhood of 90's playlists!
