A Showcase for the underground in El Paso del Norte, with a pinch of trendy.
"Straight ahead lay the distant lights of El Paso and Juarez, sown in a tremendous valley so big that you could see several railroads puffing at the same time in every direction, as though it was the Valley of the World. We descended into it."
- Jack Kerouac, On The Road

SIMPLE MINDED ARCHIVE
DUNGEON/VAULT OF DOOM
Simple Minded Entertainment started as an entertainment and news website in early 2003. At that time, blogs didn't exist and stuff like Facebook and Twitter were merely sparkles in the eyes of corrupt assholes who just ripped off the code for Livejournal and changed the font and name. Back in that glorious Renaissance of the computer age, if you had something to say for the entire world to read you had to HTML the hell out of it and put it on Geocities or pay for website and storage space.
For your viewing and archival pleasure, we have decided to leave the original Simple Minded Entertainment website open in it's original 2003 glory as an archive for you to visit and admire. Now you can see all the stuff we wrote in the past but were too lazy to transfer over to the current site that looks a bit more sleek yet still continues the tradition of psychotic babbling we started in 2003. Some of the content from our archive, perhaps, has already been transferred to our new site but most of it will remain here for future generations to study. The majority of our old site has been disabled, but the archive is is still here with most of the content spread out in more easy to manage chunks. We have left the site in it's original condition with very few changes to maintain the integrity of the original site. Most of the contact information has been deleted because that info is outdated and the buttons have been disabled, but other than that it is presented warts and all for you to view.
This should not be treated as a website, but as an online museum and archive that should be viewed as the catacombs of Simple Minded Entertainment. I really don't like how sites try to erase their history whenever they modernize, so this stands as a tribute to where we began. Sure, you can go go web.archive to see how sites looked in the past, but this makes it much more personal because we like to consider all our old stuff as the foundation for what we are. So please enjoy our snazy 2003tastic graphics and buttons (please don't click on the buttons they don't work) as well as the content that we created in 2003 and continued with for a few years before we upgraded to our new home sometime in 2005/2006. It's hard to believe that we've been doing this for over a decade! From TV Shows to animations to concerts to comic books to crazy rants, we are really proud of surviving for this long. People have come and gone and left their mark on Simple Minded Entertainment over the years and here's hoping we get to work with more amazing people in the years to come.
THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!

The music portion of Simple Minded Entertainment covered various aspects of the Paso Del Norte music scene and included profiles on our bands of the month, concert reviews and a local musician guide that covers most of the artists from the El Paso, Juarez and Las Cruces area that were around in 2003. If anything, just check out the music section of the archive to view this neat little piece of local music history as it was left when created in 2003.
The amusement section of the old Simple Minded Entertainment site covered entertainment news and articles at the local and global level. This is the base for what Simple Minded Entertainment was to become and many of the features that we started on the old site still exist to this day. Visit our amusement archive to view the early origins of the Tournament of Film, Simple Minded Interview, Paso Del Norte Hall of Fame and our Simple Minded Rants that foreshadowed what we would become. The archive also includes our brief interludes into monthly entertainment roundups and top ten lists.
SIMPLE MINDED PROGRAMMING (2003 - 2004)
Simple Minded Programming launched as a companion to Simple Minded Entertainment in the early part of 2003. This section of the archive includes all the information you want regarding Simple Minded Programming, it's creators and it's many creations.
Simple Minded Entertainment had a lot of influences and this archive entry shows our original link section highlighting all the websites and people that we visited and possibly ripped off.
We have tried to keep the archive as close to the original website as possible. However, all contacts have been removed from the site because they were all outdated. So just picture the most badass webpage with email addresses and phone numbers and that's exactly what is missing from this archive.
SIMPLE MINDED VIDEO PALACE
The company archive is our collection of some of the best bits that were created for Simple Minded Programming that we posted on YouTube. The goal was to post every single skit of Simple Minded Programming on YouTube, but it was decided to leave Simple Minded Programming in the hearts and memories of our 3 fans and not post everything on the internet. So please enjoy the few videos we did put up in case you are not familiar with our TV work.
