Always nice to check Facebook to see how many birthday greets you have.
Doing well so far. 👍
Got a belting card too 😁
That’s Revision all over and done with for another year and the party seemed to be another corker! Everything seemed to be as slick and well organised as the others.
I tuned into the Twitch feed when I got the chance and managed to catch the compos I wanted to see. The Amiga Demo comp (as usual) was a cracker and even though I’m always rooting for UNIQUE and their 060 based prods, the other entries were too strong and they only placed 5th. Eon by TBL took the prize 🏆 and was a worthy winner. This was an A500 demo and was one of a few submitted this year.
Unique didn’t come away empty handed though, as they were given a Meteoriks award for Best Low End Production from 2018 with their Pt. 2 Horizons demo.
The Twitch chat room was the area I spent most of my time in but the #revision IRC channel was also being logged on the PC so I dipped into that every now and then.
I normally only frequent IRC once a year but I did find out that the party channel is actually quite active all year round. This is good to see and I always preferred relay chat and forums as a form of communication. That’s me showing my age now. 🤔
Wayfinder and Bomb Joe provided great dance sets, although Bomb Joe had an unfortunate mixing “incident” part way through, which was a strange one. Maybe it was sabotage, who knows? They managed to pull it back around and even dropped a bit of 9 Fingers into the set, which was a nice touch.
News just in: I’ve been told that someone was watching some random shit on the main comp PC and forgot to mute the audio when the act was on.
Oh dear. :o/
I didn’t manage to catch any of the other gigs live as they were on too late.
Roll on the anniversary party next year.
So, the Revision Demoparty has kicked off and things seem to be warming up nicely.
I’ll be tuning in more when the big compos start but I’ve had a quick look at the Twitch vid stream (Truck was providing the usual vocal filler) and I’ve been briefly monitoring the chat on IRCnet #revision.
Work has slackened off for the night so it’s time to kick back, relax and bang on some good old, hands up Epic Trance! 👐
F. G Noise & Patrick Dreams – Kepler (Extended Mix)
We are only a few sleeps away from the world’s largest demoscene geek fest and I’m getting my party juices flowing, ready for some Scenesat live streaming and IRC banter.
Hopefully I’ll be able to watch the Amiga Demo comp LIVE (as I normally do) but I may be too pissed by that time of the evening, as its Easter weekend and the comp is usually later on at night / early a.m.
A lot of the party I can take or leave but it’s still a huge deal in scene circles and it’s always a massive event!
I’ll report more nearer the time.
The spam filter seems to be working well and has kept quite a lot of dross from annoying me with comment verification mails.
So far, so good.
