[excess that only the internet can provide]

[Moffats thumb] Moffatt Paradise
Two words: Moffatt Hell.

[Rosie O'Donnell thumb] Rosie Nation
One of dozens of Rosie sites, this one serves as an online anthology for all of those annoying songs that O'Donnell sings on her show. A noble cause, indeed.

[Kevin Costner thumb] My Shrine To Kevin Costner
The excess on this site is matched only by Costner's own taste for exorbitance. If you enjoyed Waterworld or The Postman, then I guess you'll love the huge 91K jpeg of Costner on the main page of this site.

SPECIAL: Obsessive Star Wars Sites
One writer called this glut of websites "The Fandom Menace". I thought this would be a good time to choose some of hundreds of Star Wars pages as Obsessive Fan Sites. Enjoy.

[Stormtrooper thumbnail] How to build a Stormtrooper Costume
You've got to be an obsessive fan if you're ready to shell out the estimated $500 to $1000 US in order to put one of these together.

[R2D2 thumbnail] Star Wars Trilogy Bloopers Viewer Guide
The people behind this site had enough free time to watch each of the Star Wars films frame-by-frame to come up with this list of dozens of miniscule bloopers.

[Admiral Ackbar  thumbnail] Admiral Ackbar For President
Even a walking, talking, ugly shrimp-man can have a website. Let's hope this political movement doesn't gain any momentum.

May 9, 1999.

[New Kids on the Block thumbnail] nkotb.com
What's incredible about this site is its longevity. The New Kids have been gone for years, but unfortunately this site "keeps keeping on".

February 26, 1999.

[David Duchovny thumb] Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to David Duchovny (SPCDD)
You've got the Humane Society, you've got the Cancer Society, and then you've got this site. Where are your priorities?

January 30, 1999.

[Tori Amos thumb] Tori Amos—Ears With Feet
This website is built around the premise that everyone dreams of Tori. Unfortunately, nobody does. It's a textbook example of an Obsessive Fan Site.

December 27, 1998.

[Noah Wylie thumb] Noah Wyle: Man or Animal?
I would choose man, but with that beard he's sporting this season, he's starting to look more like an animal.

[Dawson Creek thumb] The Ultimate Dawson's Creek Site.
Tens of thousands of people have have visited this site, prying into the private lives of the show's teenage stars.

October 17, 1998.

[red line]

[David Cassidy] David Cassidy & The Partridge Family.
Isn't an entire newsgroup enough to pay homage to this has-been star. And wouldn't the world be better off without a Cassidy Family web ring?

September 25, 1998.

[Tara Lipinski] Tara Lipinski.
Have a look at the chaos that develops when Shockwave technology gets into the wrong hands. Look out for that moon, Tara!

September 11, 1998.

[Oprah Winfrey thumbail image] A Tribute to Oprah Winfrey.
USUALLY YOU SEE ALL OF THIS YELLING ON JERRY SPRINGER, NOT ON OPRAH. GET WITH THE PROGRAM!

September 4, 1998.

[Barry Pepper thumbail image] The Unofficial Barry Pepper Fan Site.
If you're like me, you're probably asking yourself, "Who the heck is Barry Pepper?" You'll be sorry you asked after you visit this site. EXTENDED REVIEW...

August 28, 1998.

[Backstreet thumbail image] Backstreet Land.
Did you know that the Boys will be appearing on Corn Pops cereal boxes here in Canada? What a great reason to cut sugar out of my diet. (Link down Dec 12/98.)

August 21, 1998.

[Chris Noth thumbail image] Chris Noth.
For a guy who's face I've never seen outside of Law & Order, I wonder where the heck this webmaster finds all the pictures to scan.

[Troy Aikman thumbail image] Bev's Troy Page.
Get past the award page, try the "AD Form Page" and see the incredible spinning letters.

August 7, 1998.

[red line]

[Steve Martin thumbail image] The Jerk - Navin R. Johnson's unofficial Homepage.
The attention to detail on this site is proof that the webmaster has watched this bad, bad, bad, bad movie far too many times.

July 31, 1998.

[Dallas thumbail image] Dallas.
"Qui a tué J.R.?" asks this french fan site. What's the french translation for "too much time on your hands"?

July 24, 1998.

[Ben Affleck thumbail image] The Completely Unofficial Ben Affleck Page.
Of course it's unofficial ... Ben's ego would have to be huge for him to authorize this gigantic site.

July 24, 1998.

[red line]

[Kirk Cameron thumbail image] The Growing Pains Fan Page.
The guy who did this site complains that there are few sites about 80's tv shows. I guess he didn't notice that Yahoo! lists hundreds of them.

[Sandra Bullock thumbail image] The best Sandra Bullock image site
Set aside your entire Sunday afternoon for this one. You'll have to wait as the front page loads up — all 850K of pictures, links, java applets, and ad banners.

[DiCaprio thumbail image] The DiCaprio Zone.
Sit back and wait a few minutes as the 52K giant head of DiCaprio loads up.

Inaugural winner - July 10, 1998.

[Shanahan thumbail image] The Shanny Palace.
Brendan Shanahan helped the Red Wings win the Stanley Cup ... but doesn't deserve such a garsih site.

Inaugural winner - July 10, 1998.

[Anderson thumbail image] Canada's Gillian Anderson Shrine.
None of the graphics seem to work, but that didn't stop this fan from proudly proclaiming his love for the X-Files star. It makes me embarrassed to be a Canadian.

Inaugural winner - July 10, 1998.

[Taylor thumbail image] Becca's Taylor (Hanson) Page.
According to the introductory text, Becca finally learned how to do frames. She uses them to full effect, assaulting us with .wavs, pics, surveys, and a list of things she's always wondered about "Tay".

Inaugural winner - July 10, 1998.

[Alicia thumbail image] Alicia Silverstone & Sarah Michelle Gellar Gallery.
In a desparate attempt to get hits, this site is a member of three web rings. The webmaster is proud of his seven meaningless awards ... and now eight, as a winner of this one.

Inaugural winner - July 10, 1998.

[red line]

[Def Leppard thumbail image] Neil's Def Leppard Link Page.
One of (suprisingly) many Def Leppard pages, Neil built this as part of a computer science course project. I think he failed — hardly any of the links work. Neil's expert use of the <BLINK> tag will point you to the best links.

Inaugural winner - July 10, 1998.
