FUN AND GAMES
Soundgarden-related humor and entertainment:
- A list of anagrams of "Soundgarden"
that was originally started by Chris Mackenzie on the newsgroup sometime in 1995.
- For users with Java-capable browsers (Netscape 2.x for PC and
UNIX, or Netscape 3.x), test your skill with the Soundgarden wordsearch and the slider puzzle.
- For players of Ultimate Doom, download Robin Selvin's Soundgarden WAD. The current version adds "Black
Hole Sun," "Boot Camp," "My Wave," and "Pretty Noose" to the
soundtracks for the first four stages. Future versions will include
more music and images.

celebrations that were here last year are once again available for
your perusal (with some of the links disabled):
The site didn't always look as it does now. There were several completely different site designs and several "specials", one-time front pages commemorating this or that.
