About this Site
Dork Droppings is a website based on lighthearted humor, pop culture observations, and good old fashioned fun. We’ve been through a lot of incarnations in the past, but times change, and so have we.
But how did this all come to be?
In the mid-1990s, four friends were doing time in a mom-and-pop video store in suburban Atlanta. In order to pass the time on those slow weekday afternoons, we began to write musings to one another on the antiquated POS computers we worked on. One day, a (very) short subjective on Citizen Kane was penned with the title “Movie Criticism for the Retarded”. A concept had been born.
In early 1998, the video store shut its doors. As creators of the content, we felt the urge to share our musings with the rest of the world. Unfortunately, there was no way to save the data into a portable format, so all we had was an incomplete collection of words printed from a dot matrix printer. The material that hadn’t disappeared into the ether was painstakingly transcribed into cyberspace, and our site made its internet debut in the summer of 1998. Throughout the ensuing years, the concept was expanded to encompass many facets of pop culture.
In 2015, Dork Droppings was born from the ashes of many previous incarnations of this site. Without any limits beyond our own imaginations, we aim to make this the best content-driven pop culture site on the internets. So dig in, and enjoy our own brand of geekery!
