make blackout poems from tweets

I cannot find a good source tweet for this yet. It is also the case that anything worth doing would be so incredibly niche that you’d have to have an audience in mind hardly less specific than its original author. …


not really something traditionally thought of as “niche internet”, but hey, still internet and still niche…


list of sites that weigh in at less than 1MB

The measurement seems to exclude adblocked stuff, and that seems questionable to me. …


excellent poultry webcams

Geese, ducks, chickens. Egg counter included. There’s a little pond right now. I wish I could put this on my television with one click for background. I’ve been missing fresh eggs…


refresh for another awful affirmation

I just found Justus’s website and it makes my heart warm to see a blend of crafts, tech, plants, books one’s read, all mish-mashed up on a website. This little URL seemed like an excellent submission for /c/nicheinternet and I’m hoping i…


cute lil personality test
  • I could make a joke about “ah, the three genders” but tbh “mostly ghost but sort of woman” is too on-the-nose, this triangle needs to be in common use everywhere
  • exactly as scientific as most other personality tests out there …

a 1928 method of creating plots for (zany) stories, now online

This is a rich vein unmined by many. Fanfiction authors! X-but-make-it-gay authors! Literary authors who are feeling a bit stuck! Unite!! …


smart person decluttering by shipping packages of random stuff to whoever'll pay postsage

I love the simplest and least custom-animated bongo cat vids so if anyone makes something with this as a tool please let me know. …


webGL 3d sculpting app, somehow

This blows my mind a little because I remember installing Blender as a kid and having it bring our family desktop to a chugging halt. Now this kind of power is available in the browser! I would love to see what people could do with this kind of sculpting application coupled with an open version of […


click on the brick building and it will change shape

I don’t know why this looks so appealing to me. Is the northwestern US so devoid of architecture? Am I unduly charmed by courtyards and balconies? Is it the cute little sound effect that I’m projecting onto the edifice? …


there are many color palette generators out there but this one is good

I know you might see “AI powered” and roll your eyes, but for whatever reason, this one seems to give me much better results than other similar ones. …



a cute little tool to make patterned pixel borders for CSS

this tool is absolutely flawless at what it does, even though I immediately start wishing for more colors, variable size, etc. etc. I’m always surprised contemporary web design doesn’t use CSS border-image more… but pleased that it thereby maintains its offbeat charm…




create a spotify playlist that blends from one artist to another

they rebranded this one year and used it as a Valentine’s Day thing. the most fun way to use it is to pick the two artists you like who are most different, and to see if you like the choices in the middle. one itches to have access to all the echo nest learned vector representations of songs and art…
