My demo scene sellout

category: general [glöplog]
yep, as an old scene fogie i get to look back on all this with a bit of wisdom too. :)

truck, preacher, and pro are right on the money. okkie's endgame comment cracked me up too. and kb is living proof that you can have a hot gf and spend senseless numbers of hours coding and composing. :) trixter's spent most of his free time on mindcandy, and he's married with two kids. it just takes a lot of patience on your part and hers.

imo, if a girl can't appreciate your demoscene hobby, dump her. you'll be much happier. hell, most girls i've dated were probably *more* attracted to me for doing something unique and creative rather than just playing video games.

and for the record, mindcandy side 1 makes great background atmosphere for makeout sessions. :D spacepigs megademo on the other hand... hehe.. you gotta have one crazy geekgrrl for that.

speaking of which, what happened to demodvd.org and mindcandydvd.com?

good question.. trixter has been laying low the past week, i'll see if he's doing okay. he mentioned being offline for a little while to resolve some (personal) problems. but it may just be a dns issue.

I sat my GF down and we watched a good chunk of the old school side of Mind Candy, me explaining all the while about realtime, 4 channel, samples, LPT DAC do-it-yourself kits, etc... she was REALLY into it.

Not so much the actual content, but the concepts behind the demos and hearing about the limited hardware, tricks, tweeks, etc...

She's an Engineer though, so maybe that helped :D
Definatly a keeper! :)

quitting scene is one thing. selling your scene-related stuff is another (although, admittedly silly :)
BUT, stopping collecting records and selling your turntable is definitely the most stupid thing i heard lately! are you totally brainless?

las: Don't blame all only by checking kleene out. ;)
Yeah don't sell, give instead, more than ten years ago i gave my 2 amigas to some friends.

The calendar on mr. sellouts homepage is a bit scary.

Here is a better view of the sofa:

I bought it last week for EUR 360,- including shipping. If you think it's gay then show us your sofa mate. The coloured sofakissens we bought last saturday at IKEA. The table is from Möbel Höffner as well as the sisal carpet. Two weeks ago there was my workdesk, two PC's and a couple of geek stuff. My girl friend said that we needed a couch and other stuff. So I started to sell everything I once owned.

hehehehe.. comedy gold!

oh, and for all you guys boasting about their 'technical girlfriends'. If a woman is technical, she is actually a man in a woman's body! period! (a red one)

i guess that turntable is for sale too?
added on the 2005-06-14 22:19:18 by okkie okkie
Yeah I hope I get at least EUR 100,- for it. It costs four times more if you buy it new.

Are you or your gf member of some sect? I have seen people transform, but this is outright scary.

Sirdan: You seem like a real patetic pushover :D i love (<3 <3) you for that, being honest (or stupid) enough to share it with the rest of the world :D

ok, but your gf is right. You need a couch and some coffee table.
added on the 2005-06-14 22:29:15 by Stelthzje Stelthzje
BUT you can also use it to watch demos from the sofa, yes!

Yes I needed a couch and a table because the same place looked like this:

she wrote me this after we made the bratkartoffeln:

Now there is another writing of her on the scratchboard. It goes like "Ich liebe Dich und ich will Dich behalten". She even told me that she wants to take over my last name when I am going to marry her.
