Back in the day you didn't need something slick or fancy, just some lousy color scheme and idiotic concept. But with the explosion of content all these random sites just got lost in the noise, for good or bad. Like roadside attractions after the interstate system. (I'm going to pitch a move to Pixar called "Bytes" where some slick HuffPo page gets accidentally copied into a GeoCities backup server and has to learn to slow down and appreciate the wisdom of the locals all while a hillbilly talking tow truck acts like an ass)
I'm closing in on 17 years of un-updated randomness. I haven't even touched the copyright date in 4 years: 306wd.com
There's also a secret link page where I used to keep a list of some of those random pages out there, but sadly they have one-by-one disappeared. If I get around to it I'll update it with spudnyc's page above, if.
