The text-mode Tumblr that I started with Raquel Meyers in 2012 has hardly been active in the last years. But I started to do daily posts again a few weeks ago. You can see it both at the Tumblr and the wordpress blog and sometimes they are posted on Twitter as well.
I’ve gone through a lot of the archives, and scheduled some of the best posts to be reblogged daily over the next weeks… months… eh.. In fact, they are scheduled until June next year. And I didn’t even go through all of it yet.
If you don’t want to miss it, check the Tumblr. Sometimes they will be on Twitter, but the reblogs will never be posted on the WordPress since that is more like an archive. On the other hand, it’s a lot of fun to go there for random posts, combine tags, search, etc.
Ok, hasta luego!
Data Airlines has just re-issued Commodore Grooves, and that made me think about videos and demos. Here’s a few of them that includes music from the album.
This Triad demo uses Raymond, and was released in 2001.
This video was made by Entter using the cassette-based video camera PXL-2000.
The Fantasy-video was released in 2004, in ye ancient times before video streaming and Youtube was a thing. Entter hosted the video on their servers, but didn’t really anticipate that it would become so popular. It was downloaded about 20,000 times I think, which created so much traffic that they had to pay a huge fee to the providers. In the end it worked out well, though. Funny how the cost of video has changed over the years..
Ull8 was used in one of the parts of the C64-demo 10 Strong Years. It was released to celebrate 10 years of Hack n’ Trade (the demogroup I founded) but it was delayed a few years. Besides, it later turned out that HT was not formed in 1993 as I always thought, but actually in 1994. Anyway.
At that time I worked a lot with Hollowman, first with his Triad-demos and then his demos for Fairlight. Pretending To See The Light uses Slobban.
Finally, this bad boy was featured as a video on the data part of the CD. It was made by Jens Nirme, who I lived with at the time.
PET.CORP and me performing at SEC-T in Stockholm last year!
Skybox, the C64-demo in PETSCII that Extend made with my music, has been nominated in the Meteoriks 2023. That’s the yearly awards for all things demoscene. I don’t think I’ve ever worked on something that was nominated, so that’s cool. It’s good that some stuff a bit off the beaten path can get some attention as well, hehe.
20y20k is a 20 year celebration of 20kbps rec, a steadfast point to return to while online music continues to deteriorate. Their website is exactly the same today as it was back then, and that works just fine.
Anyway, this compilation features classic 20kbps artists such as Jimmy Slaughter, Starpause, The Hardliner, Overthruster, Atarix, Origami Repetika, Sascha Müller, me and many more.
If you are following me on Bandcamp, you’ve seen that I’m re-publishing a lot of old releases there. Just now I did Wet Pulse, for example.

More stuff on the way!
