THE INTERNET IS FOR THEY MIGHT BE GIANTS
A hobby for July 2018: digging through broken links and abandoned forums to find some authentic 90s-early 2000s TMBG fan sites. Here are a few that I thought were interesting.
Fan sites & resources:
- Angelfire fansite with an impressive midi collection and some pictures. With State Songs and Mono Puff midis, too!
- Fansite with TMBG-themed font downloads, tiled backgrounds, info.
- Geocities fansite. A lot of broken links, but oocities provides Wayback Machine links for most of them.
- Geocities fansite lovingly created in Comic Sans.
- Geocities fansite.
- TDK's Fansite featuring photos from shows in '97 to '01. Wayback Machine only, sadly.
- Mono Puff fansite (still live), from TDK again.
- The Mono Puff site.
- alt.music.tmbg messageboard, searchable back until 1996. (I can't link to this without saying that I hope early 2000s user Bibliophilia writes a book someday. I'm enthralled by her outbursts of charmingly graphic biological prose.)
- Fans come up with an imaginary TMBG-themed action figure set.
- 1999 fan dreams featuring the Johns. As mildly questionable as one might expect.
- Uncyclopedia entries for John Linnell, John Flansburgh, and They Might Be Giants. Plus this one on Flood.
- Actually, this oocities find was a little TOO weird for me to want to link to it. This screenshot should give you the idea. If you must, go find the rest yourself.
- Imagine The Onion, but for 2001 TMBG fans. More or less.
- I'm...90% sure this utterly bizzarre TMBG hatesite is actually a Buffy the Vampire Slayer site in disguise. (Warning: links on this site may lead to NSFW Buffy fanfiction)
- [NEW] JOHN LINNELL KISS YOU! (Apparently this is a meme from 1999, if you must know.)
- This is more contemporary, from 2010, but it had to be here. Flansyon Lotor: a theory.
