News from BadassBuddy

September 2010

Damn, BadassBuddy... You OLD!


On Sep 24, 2010, BadassBuddy will be 10 years old.

A decade ago BadassBuddy.com went from 0 to Badass in about 2.5 lunar cycles
(the Web's 21st fastest growing site at the time), and the birth of an Internet anti-hero turned into a fleeting past-time for millions of chat-zombies around the globe (before SpaceBook took ownership of the majority of our free time). At times BadassBuddy was almost as impressive as the best xkcd ever!, with aspirations of being just half as cool as the worst Homestar Runner ever. (..negatory..)

10 years ago the BadassBuddy concept essentially began with just one simple piece of "edgy" pixel art that made AOL Instant Messenger™®© appear to have a nifty new feature:

Unfortunately, pixel art has since been considered a dying art form, however the ninjas over at pixeljoint.com will show you that pixel creativity is in fact still very much alive
(and I know you still love retro video gaming when you're not FPS'ing and rocking out with pretend instruments).

So I'd like to wish BadassBuddy a happy 10 year anniversary, but more importantly I'd like to thank the brilliant artists, the mediocre artists
(gotta start somewhere), the blog entry contributors, the web designers and content managers, the rockingest server admin ever, and everybody else involved, for all of the hard work and passion that went in to making a unique contribution to the interwebs.
