By the internet.
Let me take you back to 2003. I was just starting my college days at the School of Visual Arts, a little freshman at 18, my first apartment. And my first time having ... the internet.
Gray's Papaya + Franks Pizza - my cheap eats in college. Wasn't into the DVD store, though
I was never a big internet person like people I knew in high school or even middle school. My family actually just had basic cable and a land line, so for the new millenium we were pretty modest. So here I was, hearing about this thing called "Youtube" and friends would show me videos they loved.
Cut to 2010 - this week. I made a Youtube account (yes, 7 years later) to upload my animated wedding card that I'll be posting here in October, and right in front of me, was a link to the first web animations I had ever seen - the ones from way back in '03.
So I thought I'd share with you the first videos that exposed me to the wonder of the internet almost a decade ago - specifically the ones that made me laugh so hard no sound came out and I thought I'd have to be hospitalized.
