RIP DDT/Accession

category: general [glöplog]
DDT truly was a certain aspect of the demoscene personified. I don't think I ever met him while he was sober, but he was still always a nice person, if a bit loud at times. Several, mostly fun, memories of him at parties. Definitely feels like he would've had more to give, I thought he'd outlive us all somehow.

RIP Lennu.

Thanks for being a friend.

what a sad news :(

I remember DDT as the welcome guy at the entrance of Revision, at the 12:00 opening on friday he was already dead drunk and giving hug to everybody coming.

Didn't really know the guy that well, besides a few times drinking with him. But anyway, way too young to go :/ Condolences to the folks.

it was an honour to drink with you!
I remember a certain moment in a Discoteque while Radwar 2000 Party, where you ordered 50 beers (0.2l northern German beer size, still TOO MANY haha) and the waitress didn't believe they were all only for you! :)
until we drink again in the great halls of the trueschool scene!

Damn, RIP. We had our differences of opinion, but always got along great and DDT was always great fun to hang out with at parties and otherwise. Thanks for accepting me into the Accession family, you will be missed.

I love the stories and there are so many. I'd love to share my two fondest DDT memories (from so, so many)

My first time hosting AssemblyTV at Asm2009. No booze in the hall and hard work was surely a different experience for me. Back then the sponsored beer would run out at Boozembly, so I had asked DDT to get me a box of Karhu for when I'd arrive after all the compos and tv studios. Showing up stone sober at the hills around 1:00 with Meaty and Evil Paul, it was clear everyone was hammered and all the beer was gone. I found DDT, piss drunk obviously, if he had gotten me beer. He could barely speak, but smiled and disappeared in the woods, only to emerge 5 minutes later with a box of Karhu. Of course he delivered!

And the time at Stream 2012 where Haomaru, Franky and I flew to Helsinki to take the bus to Tampera. I met DDT, sober and we had a good chat (he was such a great, smart dude when sober) and we left around 12:00. I think we hadn't even left Helsinki and word spread in the bus that DDT had already passed out and pissed himself. I still don't understand how he could get fucked up that quick. Later in the weekend I found him zip-tied with his leg to the party-tent, yelling at me 'Okkie, Thoron zip-tied me to the tent! cut me loose!' with Thoron giggling like a maniac on the couch.

Oh, and the time he passed out on the Revision stage during the final compo block, and I asked him between compos if he wanted to say something, and he just slurred 'I love you okkie, I love all of you!!' and the crowd cheered him on!

Goddamn I'll miss you man!

I remember I exchanged some words with him at some party, but he always seemed quite an inaccessible person. RIP.

DDT singing in Breakpoint toilet: "I DON'T WANT YOU KEBBBBYYYYYY"

Fat chance. I'm right behind you, motherfucker. *

One of my personal favourite DDT stories was from Breakpoint (2010?) when he was again so drunk and out of control that we had to somehow bring him into that shower room. Only this time he looked sternly at our security guys, said "NO! I know where I need to go!" and went by himself. The look on our secu guys' faces was priceless. :D

Oh, and that one easter when I met him sober for the first time and that (in my head) loud, bumbling Finn was suddenly one of the kindest, nicest people around.

Rest in peace, and here's to you.

(* in the grand scheme of things. Might take a while, might not, who knows.)

When I was a kid in helsinki my friend said "hey, our isp has this cool basement full of computers, and we can visit after school." Inside Lennu showed us around in gruff manner, and let us download some things before we went. When he noticed it was warez, he laughed at us and started us showing the ftp, it blew our minds. Over the next few months he put up with us coming most afternoons, let us play on the playstation, and when he heard us talking shit about the Amiga scene, taught us how wrong we were. I will treasure been shown state of the art by him to the end of my days, as well as helping me when my GUS broke, and all the other little kindnesses he showed us. Finding out his reputation as a hell raiser was pretty shocking to us, he had been grumpy but always kind and helpful to two annoying teenage shits that kept turning up at his workplace.

I never got to meet up with him again after coming back to the demoscene, I'd always wondered if he remembered me, and really wanted to buy him some beer to say thanks.
Sad times! Totally will miss his presence at parties :/

Terrible to hear, even if I personally haven't had much interaction with him :(. Rest in peace...

sad to hear about Lennu passing away :(
condolences to his family and friends!

he was definitely a character, heard lots of stories about him, shared some of them myself at different parties we attended, i remember babysitting his drunk state at breakpoint seminars while he was too drunk to not care about the actual talk and just wanting to tell the speakers they were all wanker posers, some talk about mod chipping / home brewing for a certain console. and then getting back to the bonfire and entering a vodka drinking challenge with decypher. truck being very concearned about lennu's sugar levels since apparently lennu was a careless diabetic through he drunken stuppors.

despite all his scheme, violence and sexism stories, he was a friendly chap. will be missed.

I remember few years back some people said on IRC they were going to a bar and saw Lennu driving his Yaris nearby. Ten minutes later someone (was it T-101?) posted that
Lennu was in the bar too WITH HIS CAR. Didn't belive that, and few minutes later someone posted a picture where lennu was sitting on the terrace, with his fucking car, and with a fucking
spinning warning light on roof!

Didn't know him very well, we exchanged few random words at parties. But he was always present, like only last saturday. He truly went down with his boots on.
Requiescat in pace.
