¡Hijole! Apparently Yahoo is shutting down Geocities. I learned this from the Man on the Street section from the Onion. Since that is hardly an exact news source, I don’t have much information on the whens and wherefores, but still this news resonates with me. The first attempt of the Contains2 unit to create a website together was on geocities. It was the Adam West Batcave. When we finally found a proper hosting that pleased Marq we moved our base of absurdist comedy and minutia about our lives to www.contains2.com. For years the Batcave has just been that little placeholder with come images and avi files that was meant to redirect our hordes of fans to Contains2. But alas, now that shall die. Of course, once Contains2 didn’t please Marq any more and he let it die and won’t bring it back as no matter how much I want it and how empty its absence makes me into a pathetic wretch, so technically the Batcave outlived its progeny. Except for this site here which, though lax in content, copied the color scheme of the original as an homage.
Goodbye, good Adam West Batcave website. You’ll be missed. Sort of. Not really. But in principle or something.
Apart from that and a particularly good website for comic book annotations, I don’t imagine we’ll be losing too much that I could possibly care about. Those ads are effing annoying, so I’ll be happy to see them go.
“The people who eventually colonize the planet Uranus will be call Uranians or something. That takes the fun out of it. Oh well, at least they’ll be COLONists.”
This all reminds me, the woman who appears on the Evil Contains2 was on the cover of a magazine a month or so ago. I meant to talk about that then, when I could remember what magazine it was, but of course I’m a miserable failure so that never happened. It was the same image as still appears on Contains2 to this day, apparently. I guess it is some manner of stock image. I assume this means that evil backpack lady is conquering the world starting with web domains, moving on to magazines. Assuming she follows the logical pattern that in that order, we’ll be seeing her on cereal next. Not cereal boxes. She’ll be on the cereal itself. Her image will be made of sugar and Frosted onto Flakes soon. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Jambon Jambon Jambon!
