For those of you who don't know who he is. Vangelis is a very gifted musician and composer of music who wrote the music to the movie Chariots of Fire among other things. I have a rather intimate connection with his music. The first music I can remember hearing is his theme to the show Cosmos, hosted by Carl Sagan in 1980.

Anyways, back when the interweb was still new and I was doing a lot of websurfing (1994-1997), I came across a new website that was advertising that it was to be the official website for information about his music and life. Here is screenshot of the picture on the site


That image has actually been there without any update or change to the website since 1995. For over 10 years now, fans have been checking, watching and waiting for what "one man's ideas, expressions and musical creations" are going to be.

By now I think most people who have given up, stopped waiting. But I think that this website may set a record for the longest lasting parking page in existence. Especially that of someone famous.

I was just thinking that this website has been here all through my 20s. Now I'm turning 30 next month. Maybe it will finally be updated. Probably not.

Have you ever been to before?
