Spinnwebe – Review

Spinnwebe

by Rebekah Sue Harris

Shall I begin with, “Some people are easily amused?” Well. this page amused me. Its index page leads to “Toys,” “Exhibits,” “Stories,” and “Services.” The links work – indeed, they undulate just enough to make one look twice – and the colors and photography are… interesting.

The “Toys” section features a “Nipple Server,” where one can judge photographs of nipples. Random viewing of the Nipple Archives showed fuzzy photography, though the tattooed Flag was legible. As far as nipples go, you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all – and I’ve got two, so why should I care? Maybe someone who’s had one bitten off can use this site upon which s/he can base plastic surgery options? Addicted to psychics, I was more amused by the “Mystic 9 Ball.” (It really works, too! Rick Magic, does your new girlfriend know you’re still lusting after me? I asked… and the Ball has spoken.) There’s “The Dysfunctional Family Circus,” where we can submit our own sick captions, and “It’s A Dysfunctional Family Life,” where the authors secretly snap candid photos, and We the Viewers can add the captions. Interesting… but probably more fun for the authors to create and show off than for the viewers to edit.

Ah, but creation is interactive! for the authors give awards to other sites. They’re weird. The Pee-Wee Herman Worship Page (http://www.seanet. com/Users/weazel/peewee.html) won one. So did the Slide Rule Home page (http://photobooks.atdc.gatech.edu/~slipstick/slipstik.html). (No, I’m not kidding.) And yeah, they give themselves one for “The Nipple Server” (http://www. thoughtport.com/spinnwebe/nipple/nipple.html).

The “Stories” didn’t do a whole lot for me. However, they probably amuse the people who wrote them. You know what I mean. Directions on how to format “Spinnforms” may be the most valuable part of the whole site, especially if you have your own Web page. That’s a “Service.”
