Text from BitMöDemö

Description:This is the coders (mediocre, at most) english translation of aforementioned text by BitMö.
Text:Well, that was something of a wake-up call, with a call, from A0d, on a sunday morning. If I can write a scroll-text for a c64 demo. All kind of alarms went off in my head because I never in my life had ever done such a thing and, for added clarification, also never played a c64 game. Nevertheless I do know something about it, watch out, SOMEthing... I am familiar, through my nerd-friends, with the remixing of music from the c64. And am bold enough to say that I myself sometimes think when hearing a tune: hey, there's a nice remix in there. But that's a matter of personal taste. I am quite happy, by the way, with the fact that my taste and that of my buddy (TRON) reasonably agree. Which is, ofcourse, nice when playing music in the car. The remix of Cauldron II (2003!) is my favourite remix at the moment. About time they produce something new... LOL. When my son, aka Minimi, was about fourteen years old he and his friends drove me absolutely crazy with 'They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard', despite my age adding another childhood-like trauma with all of them reenacting the Hobbits scene in the bar on my kitchen table, endlessly playing that tune. Unknowingly meeting the maker of my trauma years later a few times and then having the conversation come to the subject of my dear son and telling the story of how he drove me insane with the whole dancing-on-the-kitchentable thing and that it was indeed adorable that they had so much fun together but enough=enough. But also that there is nothing more fun than pestering mom... TRON looked at me with his guilty puppy-dog eyes and asked: have you ever watched through the end-titles? On which I answered: probably. and I probably had plans to send him an email thanking him for the hours of abuse of my senses having to watch Sweet-son & Company in an uncomfy chair as a spectator 'at gunpoint'. hahaha. So I opened Youtube and watched the credits roll by... WTF. You made this? thx, dude... However, it didn't stop us from being friends; I forgave him... :) Kidding! In Aug. 2013 I quick-flash visited my first scene-party. Evoke in Köln. Actually just to meet up with our mutual friend Ziphoid and TRON had said that we were just going to pop in and leave shortly after. But when the demo-show was on I really wanted to watch it all the way through; I thought it was gorgeous. In the meantime, socializing and stuff, I get the message: Come on, we're going back home! Me, all surprised: back home? already? But we did have quite a few km's behind us and quite a few left to go. So there was not much else I could do but submissively step into the car and drive back to NL. But only after I got the 'mission' to make sure that we, read: TRON, would be there the next year. No worries, I said and made a solemn promise. And indeed did we attend Evoke 2014 in Aug. and stayed for the whole weekend. Boy, was I amazed by all the beauty I saw and heard passing by. So much so that halfway through the show I turned to TRON and said: TRON, now I'm really angry!!! Why that so sudden, he asked. Look at all this art we are being presented with here, I said, and compare that to what we get on TV at home. That's seriously no comparison! Why do we get to see all that crap on there? OK, with a few exceptions to the rule but... Jeez, I was really impressed and worked up about it. In other words: I really enjoyed all the wonderful things I have witnessed at those parties, everyone thx for that. grtz Bitmö...
