Curious and hard to define; the obscure corners of the web.(10 total)

exo.pet [jump here]
A luminous creation lives here. The website is dedicated to "neopets" which I presume are a past or future kind of digital companion. As is true of personal pages the pets themselves are under construction. What exists of them is a webpage laden with pixelart GIFs. I'll say that's near enough because at least GIFs aren't (yet) nagging to be fed.

The presentation is fluorescent tones over a starry backdrop. This is melded with a mid-2000s software publisher website style. Wherever the author takes this website will be intriguing, but even now it is worth visiting for the aesthetics.

Nobody Here [jump here]
The title is something of a misnomer because this website is alive. It is a man made into a digital entity only to be rendered corporeal again in your browser. Scroll and observe as he types free verse straining over deeper meanings on his vintage computer. Click into the eclectic categories that emerge on a list, and experience the assorted stream of conscience musings.
Original, very idiosyncratic, and borderline inexplicable. Something like what I seek in music, but thrown together in the form of a website. Somebody's there.

Mojave Phone Booth [jump here]
A website committed to the history of the world's loneliest phone booth (GB: phone box). It has been steadily updated since the author made his first visit in 1997 and long after its tragic demolition in 2000.
The stories inspired by it have made news reports, a film and even a book. This is next-level passion fused with eccentricity. Perhaps someday there can be a plaque erected to commemorate its memory.
The rest of this author's website is equally as eccentric and certainly worth delving into it.

Net Animations [jump here]
Hand crafted website. A repository of many bizarre animated GIFs, each carefully categorised: e.g. Dogs, Birthdays, Computers, Creepy, Space, Obama. The range is as extensive as the variety.
The website is styled in an equally bizarre mish-mash of colours and textures. Don't go through life and say you've missed this one.

Jackypc [jump here]
A French website showcasing home-built PCs from the early to mid 2000s. Presented in a crimson and black coating. Pick a random number and see how the boxes looked in Croissant land 15 years ago.
The website was last updated in 2010, and that was a news update remarking on how it hadn't been updated since 2007: "En 2010, vous me direz que c'est une page à l'abandon."

WizWorld [jump here]
Colourful SciFi style throwback page, featuring modest use of GIFs.
I'm not entirely sure what this is meant to be, but it is done with a lot of passion. He has great fondness for an old SciFi B-Movie, The Wizard of Speed and Time (that's a job title I'd envy).

A.N. Lucas [jump here]
A true-to-tradition Geocities style homepage. Featuring its own animated GIFs, a very tasteful logotype and its own fireplace.
This one shows how these web pages look when construction is complete.

I don't really know what I found here. It is a trip for the senses.

The Most Amazing Website On The Internet [jump here]
The title is correct. Everyone should make a visit here at least once in your life. At TMAWOTI, you'll witness the pinnacle of web design. This site is the high bar whereto we all aspire; everything else is a gaping miss.
