You Wanted To See It, early explorations in user-generated content

By on June 28, 2015

I stole the idea for You Wanted To See It from that Happy Days episode when The Fonz crashed his motorcycle into a chicken stand during an ill-fated televised death-dare. I’m pretty sure those writers stole the idea from someone else before them, so it was all fair game as far as I was concerned. It was my first foray into so called “user generated content”. Of course we didn’t really know that was a thing back then, I just figured it was a good way to let someone else come up with the ideas so I could spend more time on the office slot car track.

In the end it was pretty much a wasted effort. The majority of the ideas sent in were terrible. The main reason, I would soon learn, was given the opportunity, people just generally come up with terrible ideas. There were some good ones too, but they never made it because they were just far too complex for Purchase sinequan side my rudimentary animation skills. (Had they even seen my site?) So, as much as I would have enjoyed seeing Fatty Big Eye and Bruce surfing a burning Siberian Tiger down the cliffs of Machu Picchu, it was all just a bit beyond my reach. And far beyond the level of effort necessary to make a living on the web in 1999.

So, in the end, I just wrote this one myself and passed it off as a viewer entry. Truth be told, there is no Peggy in Wichita Falls. No fan of Bruce’s running and jumping abilities. There’s no solarium. There’s no Prickly Pete. There’s no other solarium. Just Fatty, Bruce and a one-time character named Rupert. But in the end, I think it works. Unless you have Line spy, Whatsapp spy. any better ideas.
