Ghosts of Internet Past


#1

Help me compile a list of internet celebrities from the glory days of internetting! Try to use your memory and not sites like “Know Your Meme”.

For example:

Randy Constan aka Peter Pan

Jay Maynard AKA Tron Guy

Ready? Steady? Go!

I remember the Peter Pan guy…he had a creepy (or innocent but inadvertently creepy) website where he had photos of himself dressed as Peter Pan or Little Lord Fauntleroy and so on. Also a ministry called Through the Cracks because of course it was.

I remember him because the Cattygoths, another long defunct Web 1.0 site, had his site with commentary in their weekly “dear god what is this thing” website review.

EDIT - and here it is. Wayback Machine FTW.

But entering into the spirit of the thing…

RIP Kimbo.

Not the ghosts I was looking for.

Edit: Not a celebrity… Will leave it, since it is a ghost that rises up every once in a while from the depths of my noggin

Interesting fact is he parleyed his fame to act in several gay porn films like this (NSFWish):


#14

La Caída de Édgar

#16

This guy disappeared


#17

And recently we lost Kev from Nothing to Do With Arbroath, which was a regular source of laughs for me and material for some of the Boingers. This made me really very sad. There are many onions to chop at that link there.


#18

The guy who made WAX isn’t a celebrity… OK, go ahead and pull the other one!
