Outside.com and outside.org are boring, and I don't know what's going on at outside.net

Ugh. outside.co has a banner that's actually targeting domain squatters.

That's what the wayback machine is for

Looks like it started as an online radio network called Outside Broadcast in the mid 1990s run by a guy called Carl, then by 1999 it was being used to promote a self-made EP by "self defense force" and still underpinned by the Outside Broadcast Network. In the early 2002, it changed while "we are away" and described Carl as being a 21 year-old rock 'n roller in California and in mid 2002 it changed again to read:

FUCK MARIAH MEDIA. FUCK BRIAN HEIDELBERGER.

It looks like Mariah Media works on Outside Magazine's television arm, so I'm going to guess they tried to take outside.net from Carl here. Brian Heidelberger apparently does dispute resolution for "cyber squatters" so this just backs my theory up.

Carl seems to have been kicked out of his home in 2003 and was pissed off enough to make it his front page image. In 2004 they got "hacked", then the site went back to being a bunch of random numbers with the caption "what the fuck".

In 2006, the page turned into the image we can see today. Weird.

Seriously. It's almost creepy, with that cryptic little message.
