e-Source for Crap Since 1999
Amazing. I started E-Crap
back in 1999 with a co-worker, and at the time, I promised we'd always be
"Crappy" - crappy content, shoddy HTML work, you
name it. Now, more than 12 years later, we're still here,
and crappier than ever!
In our heyday
around 2006, we were getting more than a million hits a day.
We had celebrity readers, celebrity columnists alongside
amateur ones, we got tons of press, and people used to quote
our articles around water coolers.
We also spawned
a few pop culture things that we are not too modest to take
credit for. We were the first pop culture site to predict
the "Reality TV" mania, years before it became
"the" thing on TV. We were the first pop culture
site to alert the masses to the band Guster. Okay, Guster is
not the Beatles, but they did have a pretty successful run,
and nobody else was tooting their horns until after they
hit. We did before. There were other things too. We had Rita
Granberry (aka Rita G) as a "sex columnist" long
before she pummeled Kanye with a shovel in the
"Flashing Lights" video. Actually, it was her
E-Crap column that led to her being named a sex columnist
for Playboy Magazine for a year.
So here were
are, 12 years later, and bringing fresh content back. We
think the time was right to bring crap back, even though it
never really left. The site has been live every day of those
12 plus years, offering classic content, and occasional new
crap the last few years. We hope you like the new content,
and will reach out to us.
copied only a small fraction of the old site's content to
the new server. I kind of wanted to start clean, not to
mention the time it took (and would have taken) to move
everything. I still have access to all or most of the old
content, so please feel free to e-mail me if there's
something I can help you to locate!
