This website was created in 1996 by Jason Towers, for fun. He grabbed the sounds and 99% of the screenshots, and photoshopped the images where applicable. Click the Twitter link or email Houseofvertigo at yahoo dot com dot au.

1996 was early days for the internet. Back then it was common for websites to be collections of links and smalltime downloads.

Language changes over time. Terminology goes in and out of favour. If you find something on this website that you believe is offensive or poorly phrased, please notify me.

The original content of this website — which is mainly the text — is copyright © 1996-2015 Jason Towers. Please don't rip it off. For permission to use stuff, please email the address above.

This isn't a blog. The content of each page changes from time to time, and the changes aren't recorded. So if you intend to cite the text of this website, I recommend you take a snapshot using the Wayback Machine.

Thanks to Jason Rooimans for two of the Shaft in Africa MP3 sound grabs, and to Bernie C for his much-missed Shaft tribute site.

If you've read this far, you deserve a hidden sound file or something. Click here to hear a pimp from Truck Turner (see the Blaxploitation page) say, “we're in the business of runnin' hos.” I take this opportunity to call you a jive-ass pimp, and hope you'll return the favour.
