Kicks serious ass. Some of the most fiendishly clever lyric writing of anything EVER on the demoscene in here... not a syllable out of place, and no hint that the message has had to be compromised to make it fit.

and massive props for "making a demo about it".

Looking forward to the "real deal", which I've already seen glimpses of, while darya (and chunna remotely) were working their asses off during the party to finish it.
Unfortunately they couldn't make it in time, but they persistently continued to work to at least bring this preview of it.
And I'm so happy about this, because I can now listen to THIS FUCKING BANGER OF A TRACK on repeat! <3

well! I must say the visuals/track don't quite get there for me in terms of taste/a bit of quality (sounds like this might be remedied by a final version if I interpret v3nom's comments correctly?), but hot damn, the message and lyrics are indeed brilliant, very well written/expressed. Also:

I like the energie and message, looking forward to the final version.

Liked the track a lot. Would have loved to see the finished visuals.

I also think that Underground Conference was the perfect place to release this, pretty much building a bridge between the "speech and art is free" kind of views that appear to make up the majority of UC's participants and those who believe it's the scene's job to provide safe spaces.

I also think that "make a demo about it" once again has proven to be far more effective than ranting and raving on toxic demoscene communication channels.

I am having a bit of a hard time understanding the message, though. And I feel that some of what appears to be demanded here is rather the job of a professional therapist and/or neurologist, and nothing the scene is to provide in full.

But nevertheless: A good point was made by doing a demo, presenting it outside of the authors on bubble, therefore reaching sceners who probably could not have been reached without it.

So: Well done, Kevin.

Also sorry that I was too awkward to properly high-five you at the party. x) it's never good to be undecided about anything.

I find it hard to buy into the narrative of marginalization here. The people involved in making this aren't oppressed underdogs - they're winners of multiple compos, organizers of major demo parties, skilled creators, lauded recipients of awards and frequent collaborators with peers in what would 25 years ago have been called "the elite". They're continually making their voices heard as much as anyone else and are, when doing so, backed up not only by numerous people with massive scene clout but also by society at large. This is the establishment pushing establishment views packaged as if they were subversive or contrarian: preponderance as punk.

Ironically, the lyrics seems to make the point that equality and solidarity means total, unquestioning acceptance of the authors as the sole judges and jurors in every case of linguistic minutiae, however misconstrued. If that's indeed the intention, I'm unsure what makes it different from oppression.

Nevertheless, it's a great tune and the at times exceptionally clever rhymes are delivered with precision.

@grip It was only 12 months ago, maybe even less, that people were saying "who the hell are these SJWs with no scene background, coming out of nowhere to tell us how to run the scene" - about the exact same people. So if they don't have scene credentials, their opinion is invalid... if they do, their opinion is also invalid. Clever.

In any case: speaking out for other people besides yourself is a thing. Darya and Chunna are clearly not going to be driven out of the scene by sexist bullshit at this point... now let's keep it that way for the next 1000 female sceners.
added on the 2021-07-28 13:07:00 by gasman gasman
@gasman Well, I'm not those people and it's fairly simple to prove them wrong. I see production and organizer credits going several years, even decades back, with plenty of compo winners and even a Meteoriks award. I think that amounts to very accomplished credentials and hard-earned, respectable positions within the scene. This makes it hard for me to accept the authors as somehow struggling to make the big leagues; they're already there.

that means the "up" one.
added on the 2021-07-30 22:12:01 by Serpent Serpent
grip: it's not a matter of not making the big leagues, it's a matter of that the scene should not be requiring a scener to be randomly sexually harassed on their way there just because they don't have a penis.
added on the 2021-07-31 23:35:49 by psenough psenough
and really, if you can't agree that no one should be randomly sexually harassed doing something they like doing (ie, go to a demoparty and make a demo) you have some lack of empathy problem going on with yourself right there.
added on the 2021-07-31 23:39:03 by psenough psenough
@psenough I'm of the opinion that nobody should ever be sexually harassed (or indeed harassed at all) while doing anything, even things they don't like - such as working. I think it's safe to say that the vast majority of society and sceners agree with this and from what I've seen in E.G. recent Pouët BBS threads the scene - in this case party organizers and chat moderators - have dealt with known offenders accordingly. Although my empathy is perfectly fine I don't have to employ it in this case, having suffered through several similar experiences myself - some of them on demo parties.

I wrote a critique of the overall sentiment of the demo, such as I interpreted it. There's a conflict, yes, but I have a hard time accepting how it's framed and, more importantly, what seems to be the suggested solution. I think the point you make in your first reply is a fair one; my initial interpretation of the demo is that the authors feel held back by allegedly prevailing social mechanisms. Other than that, the replies have so far focused either on something someone else has said, or something I've supposedly said but clearly haven't.
