this site’s history

THIS WEBSITE WAS CREATED IN 2003 BY CM AS A GALLERY FOR THE ARTWORK OF FRIENDS AND BANDMATES AS WELL AS ANONYMOUS SOURCES. THE ORIGINAL SITE SAID SOMETHING LIKE THIS: “THIS WEBSITE WILL FEATURE A DIFFERENT ARTIST EACH MONTH. ANY AND ALL ARTWORK SUBMITTED WILL BE POSTED, NO MATTER WHAT OR HOW DISTURBING. SERIOUSLY: ANY AND ALL ARTWORK WILL BE POSTED.” THE IDEA WAS  TO NOT EDIT ANY OF THE SUBMISSIONS, ENCOURAGING AN ANARCHIST FORUM ON THE INTERNET, MAKING IT OPEN SEASON FOR TASTELESS AND POSSIBLY ILLEGAL ARTWORK, AS WELL AS THE PERSONAL, FOUND, WHATEVER & UNKNOWN. TRES. H. ZOUR WAS THE FIRST TO MAKE A SUBMISSION OF FOUND ‘MODEL MAN’ PHOTOS. SOME TIME LATER, PATRICK DEWITT ANONYMOUSLY SENT US HIS SCREEN-PRINTED COLOSTOMY BAGS. AFTER A WHILE, THE SUBMISSIONS STOPPED ROLLING IN AND OUR JUVENILE ASPIRATIONS OF 1ST AMENDMENT LEGAL INFRINGEMENT FADED. WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL THE CONTRIBUTORS FOR SENDING THEIR WORK AND OFFER THIS ARCHIVE BELOW. XO CM & CO.
