sry, scene & politics dont mix. especially in a bad 4k.

this is not politics.

I usually don't like demos with political messages, but this is an exception, since it doesn't really have a message, just a lot of random words that you can draw your own conclusion from.

Disqualified at assembly :


I feel like a computer by Melon Dezign in 2003
Chimera by Halcyon in 2002
Saint by Halcyon & da Jormas in 1997

So it s a good sign to be disqualified at Assembly

nice concept guys... completly simple, a bit "paradoxical". makes you think (and seems some ppl here can't do that)

Ingenious idea to be disqualified at Assembly! That's a concept on itself. Wow..

Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed
Take a look at all the suffering we breed
So many lonely faces scattered all around
Searching for what they need

Is this the world we created?
What did we do it for?
Is this the world we invaded
Against the law?
So it seems in the end
Is this what we're all living for today?
The world that we created

You know that every day a helpless child is born
Who needs some loving care inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by

Is this the world we created?
We made it on our own
Is this the world we devastated
Right to the bone?
If there's a God in the sky looking down
What can he think of what we've done
To the world that He created?

well when we look scene-wise it totally sucks. when we look politically or religiously i wanna say fuck religions and politics so both way it sucks.

The feedback I got is:

Disqualified: Random messages - can not guarantee ASSEMBLY rules compliance

liked the red-on-white triangles (should have been animated tho), the random zceneboetry with white "shadow" (i don't give a fuck about politics tho),the awfully penetrating sound (i don't dare to call it music) and the simple syncing (simplicity rox). plus, it can't guarantee any rule compliance (yeah). so, a genuine thumb up, really.

Thumb up for the feedback you got :)

guess they were afraid you were ripping lyrics without permission.

this copyright control bullshit is really getting out of hand. i understand asm for not wanting to mess with the law but the law is borderline ridiculous here.

plagium control aplauded, creative restraint, no.

havent seen the intro yet so piggie for now.

This couldn't have been any worse if you tried! It doesn't even have a political message just random phrases!

Was it disqualified for the random "political" crap or the ear-piercing noise that made me press escape after 5 seconds?

Behold, a tired old slashdot joke is about to follow...


  1. copy/paste some old code
  2. add controversial/offensive material about drugs, religion, politics or ear-sex
  3. ???
  4. profit (expected disqualification + back-slapping on pouet for being such a brave, subversive rebel artist)


Just admit that it was supposed to be a JML prod. ;)
sucks added on the 2006-08-04 19:54:38 by tomaes tomaes
So basically they disqualified it because it was somewhat generative in nature? How about ditching all demo competitions then.. I mean, isn't the point of code to be dynamic.
added on the 2006-08-04 20:09:35 by _-_-__ _-_-__
Tomaes, if it was supposed to be a JML prod, wouldn't it then be released under Jumalauta?

This is not my cup of tea I am afraid, mainly because the "music" sucks. Sorry.

rulez added on the 2006-08-05 04:26:53 by wham wham
It probably was disqualified because of the low quality in the production. Then they made up a funny reason to tell Preacher who is getting a tad bit arrogant nowadays. He had it coming.

disq The Promised Land by Preacher / Traction
Reason: Random messages - can not guarantee ASSEMBLY rules compliance

Compo organizers:
sivu, Tundrah, jammu

Those guys are persons who behave in an VERY unscenish way (tm) !!!!!!!

My thumbs to Preacher for the message JIT !

It just pisses me off that we have idiots in the scene who can't handle the concept of expressing yourself in a demo.

No politics allowed?

Yay for censorship.

I believe Dick Cheney put it best:

Go fuck yourself.
The Assembly-guys must have been really worried the wrong word-combinations would show up then :)

Sorry, I expected lots more from a Traction demo.

Very dissapointing, looks like something that could have been typed in out of a your sinclair magazine.

Sound is grating and horrible, there are loads and loads of 256 byte intros, let alone 4k intros that are 100% better than this, just take your pick.

So let me get this straight. These guys are actually, seriously afraid of a... random text generator?

That's so stupid that it is almost hilarious.

Good job at exposing the madness, Mr. Preacher man!! Keep it up!!

(Although the demo is totally annoying, the sound blows and it didn't even exit when I asked it to. But hey. It's an attack prod :))

I'm torn, either it really wanted to be political, but on the other hand the NFO states the opposite - hmm.

Maybe it's a compofiller, nonetheless Traction sure was busy in 2006 so far :)

May future-me decide what to do.

It's a joke, mostly, I intentionally tried to walk the fine line between parody and bad art, and yet still somehow wanted to make a point since the Second Intifada was still a discussion topic when I made it. I don't blame asmorg for inflicting this on so many innocent people, it's pretty horrendous in every aesthetic sense.
