UPDATE: Stick Death Reborn is no more. I leave this post up for historical purposes, being the little value it has.
Recently I noticed the return of Stick Death, one of my favorite stick figure death sites from many years ago when the animated death genre was the rage of the web. Back then there were numerous web sites that had animations of stick figures meeting their dooms, and Stick Death was certainly a good source of violent but harmless fun. I noticed the site’s author linked to a recent snapshot of StickDeath.com as captured by the Internet Archive. While he won’t be able to upload any new animations, the old ones are on display for posterity.
UPDATE: It appears that the curtain has closed on Stick Death once again. The link from the main page now goes to the Wayback Machine closed beta test site. I tried a search from the public Wayback Machine but received a message that the Stick Death URL has been excluded from its pages.
UPDATE ON PREVIOUS UPDATE: Now the site is some online store for audio equipment. No more Stick Death.
If you absolutely insist on having your long-missed dose of Vitamin SD, try a search for “Stick Death” next time you’re on YouTube. I found plenty of favorite animations there. Also, a search for Stick Death GIFS in the images tab of your favorite search engine will pull up some classic animations as well.
When I first wrote this post, I had no idea it would later become one of the most-viewed entries on my blog. Thanks for stopping by.
