[ L ] Флэшбэки времён Swanky.нет: colors и halcyon/prehensile.com

Лирическое О.: Кто-нибудь, кроме меня, помнит и любит C.O.L.O.R.S. — „bedtime stories for big kids“? А молодость Prehensile Tales?

UPD: хи-хи. halcyonpink. Сам Halcyon. Хи-хи.

UPD: Собственно, у меня два учителя нарратива было — это Лэнс Артур (Lance Arthur ) и как раз Magdalena Donea. Потом уже появились все эти остальные люди. А Сванки... Ах, сванки, как же тебя не хватает. Единственное сообщество, которое, пожалуй затронуло меня сильнее всего и повлияло сильнее всего — я помню Enigma, помню выросшего, в том числе, и оттуда, Onyro, помню автора и заводилу Дастина Ваннаттера, помню swankarmy.net... В общем, много я чего помню.

... И Табер тоже, да...

we were all once 16 year old kids, wide-eyed and full of hope, connecting to the net on our 28.8 modems and overlaying 100 different pictures in photoshop. our heroes were taber buhl. dustin vannatter. raz. we posted to design-l, we wanted to be in swanky, and we were all amazed when someone figured out that you could eliminate the underline to text links.

but then something terrible happened. we grew up. ... lost was that experimental edge that once motivated us. lost was the idea that we could question modern practice and ideas. lost was the motivation that led us to say something, to make something, to do something and to be something.
