When the site started, pretty much everyone but me was still in Lansing. Now, pretty much everyone is in Lawrence... hell, actually... Paul is the only one in Lansing. We all have various jobs, some of us have actually managed to graduate college, some of us have been kicked out of college, and we're are all dating different people than when the site started.
The earliest piece of news on the Nuthouse is from early April '98, although the site was started shortly after Thanksgiving Break of '97. The first site wasn't much, and featured a picture of Calvin from Calvin and Hobbes as the logo, and the background was a picture of a Less Than Jake CD. The first story to be posted is beyond me at this point, but I think it was Internet Love. The art has gotten better, as have the stories.
This site's been around for over six years... man, I haven't even had a relationship last much more than a year. That's rather sad. Since I've started the site, it's been on two servers, had about four different URLs, and two different mailing lists. I've lived in three different dorm rooms, two apartments, gone to two different colleges, had nine jobs, written for four other websites and three magazines (never making a fucking dime), and dated six different girls.
Lotsa change, but one thing has been consistent: amazingly, we still all hang out together (meaning Paul, Craig, Sean, and I). Well, two- the site STILL doesn't get any fucking visitors.
Thanks to everyone who has ever sent in stuff for the site, nice
unkind words, helped me find art, made fun of me, gotten a Quotie, or
read a single story.
Now onto the next phase of the Nuthouse... whatever that may be.
