20 Years Ago on AOL.com: Oct. 30, 1998 -- Garlic Stinks... Does John Carpenter's "Vampires"?

October 30, 1998: John Carpenter's Vampires was the lead promo. I have no answer for the question posed in the headline, though I will say that in the late 1990s, I still hadn't developed a taste for garlic, which explains the wording.

John Glenn's historic space mission remained in the top block as a text promo.


[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the AOL.com home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
