Optimus Celebrity?

category: general [glöplog]
i think we should open a separate pouet.net only for optimus, so ours can be safe

hey hey, not so rude dudes...
as dip said optimus is the only man who is really dedicated to the scene..
and optimus belongs to pouet.net and to the scene as an apple on an appletree or something...
i cant imagine pouet without optimus anymore..
(not really, but.. "er ist mir ans herz gewachsen" <-- dont know how to express THIS in english)
im looking forward to the next funny (or stupid) thread...
its always good for a laugh...
hey hey this text is getting as long as an optimus-one...
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!! i think im infected now...
i shut up now.

Many people have dedicated a large part of their lives to the demoscene. Imho, optimus is only a lamer who *thinks* he is doing something for the demoscene. Like in greece : He will suggest, not in public though (he is not that stupid) that he is responsible for our "revival" in early 2001. Fuck no !... There have been people before and after him who actually DID some WORK rather than bullshitting people on the pouet, ALL the time, about their lack of time for "coding" (as if coding and qbasic could stand in the same sentence, anyway..). Optimus, It is fine to waste your time, but do not claim to be a messiah or a celebrity. It's about time people stop pampering you...

Optimus is dedicated to the internet, whereas people like the farb-rausch crew (or even K-storm) are dedicated to the scene.

Optimus once wrote code in C. How do you think he made Atsou? (Because actually Atsou is his creation - i just connected the parts and draw the ending picture).

The demoscene is dead(tm) enough as it is. Let's keep Optimus' personals out of it!

Oh, and btw, yes! Remove the top gloppers list from pouet. For mercy. Help some poor fellows get a life!

I suggest a top demos of the month listing. It would still lend itself to the 'ooh, this must be good so I'll click' problem, but creating a popularity-this-week might be a good thing.

lompas: I never claimed I am doing anything important for the demoscene, nor did I seriously thought I am a celebrity (sic). It was just a funny term somebody invented for me, which doesn't honor me, since it's coming out from the fact that everybody knows me because of my lameness here in pouet. So, I don't care about that "honor" and this thread was just a dream I had seen that I found funny and wanted to share. Not a try to claim anything. Why would I? The "celebrity" term doesn't honour me! Did you took the whole thing seriously? :P

About the claim that I am responsible for the revival of the greek demoscene. What you say is a past for me, something that I don't even think about myself now. And it wasn't me who originally said that. Other people (2 organizers at ReAct party for example) talked with me and wanted to gave me their respect for that. They were of course talking bout my enthousiasm, gathering all the old and new sceners in the mailinglist I opened, writting to commercial magazines about the demoscene, opening a website (users.auth.gr/mkargas/grscene), spreading the word, things that gave the motivation to other people to start. And I never tried to put on dog (ugh,. to perno pano mou, this is what it translated, how strange. I mean I didn't boosted my ego) about this. I told them, thanks, but I think I am just one small part of the pie and without the other people who organised parties and made cool demos (and I was even talking about you too :) it wouldn't be possible. After that, since I was so tired and stupid to do some real coding on PC, I stopped beeing active, and let the others do the real thing. My part was done.

Later I only finished my CPC demo, for my personal pleasure and sattisfaction (especially) and now I just prefer to take some rest with Erasmus because I am tired of what I am doing here (laming or fighting with other people) instead of something more creative. I will take that break from the demoscene from September, don't know if I will work on something inside Summer for Digital Nexus (time is very few and I am already tired) and I don't really know what I will do when I will come back. I do want to get back to the demoscene with better spirit and doing actually something on PC. I am not afraid to say I didn't coded anything these 5 years (except from the CPC demo, which is the only one I consider as a demo from me actually, and the reason why I did is was to please myself that I have actually done something in my scene life, so that I could finally take a rest from the demoscene) but to take back my word, that I had something to do with the revival greek demoscene, even if it was not coding but building sites and helping to get back with older and newer guys..

And I don't even care about these anymore, it's the past. What is done is done..

P.S. Sorry about the size, but I wanted to take my 2 cents back..

Optimus, if you spent all the time you spend writing stupid posts/replies here writing some serious demoscene code you'd have probably written more code in the last ... what, 4 months, than I have in my whole life (and I've written a lot).

Stop complaining about doing nothing for the demoscene, and do something, instead of chitchatting around here.

Shoot me...just when i thought them pouet threads can't get ANY FUCKING LAMER!!!! ARGH!
added on the 2003-06-21 18:04:59 by coma coma
Comi: it *can* get lamer, like when people like you act up, but I digress...

I support the original idea of getting Optimus' rants off this site -wholeheartedly. Can't we start some sort of paypal fund to get him enough diskspace on some godforsaken server to waste? That would be money well spent!

What he really needs is a good supply of demos that need scrolltexts... =-)

I didn't really wanted to reply to this thread yesterday, but I had to clean my case with what lompas said..

kb: no you don't have to dig one up, I'll gladly give him one. He would enjoy livejournal and it is fully more appropriate than here for his ... um... overabundance of expressiveness.
livejournal suxx

but at least you won't force anyone to read it.
please REALLY consider opening a blog or an LJ-account or sg.
