Who is this THS guy anyways?

category: general [glöplog]
You might be scared from the title and think this is another flame thread towards another person. It isn't I believe. Just a bit of curiosity about the one who made me laugh (or ashamed? ;) today, while reading the latest news in his site. Es ist egal für mich, even the deadliest jokes about me in there, afteralls I always loved to get lost in his insanely crazy texts when I felt I was ready to do so.

A mysterious guy who has the weirdest designed demoscene site I have ever seen, however I have never observed him in Pouet or some demoscene activities. It's strange, if you just surf regurarly in Pouet and be an active obsessed scener downloading everything, you might still haven't heared of THS if you haven't ever visited his site. Like he (or she?) is a person who has nothing to do with the demoscene, but bashes demos in his personal site alone. Or is he a scener I already know, under another handle? Where is he from btw? Did anyone of you know him or met him in some demoparties?

I don't know, it just happened that I open this thread out of curiosity, or when I read the latest THS news. I just felt so. But it's not offensive, just curiosive. My only enemy is predictable! (He seems to be lost these days) I want to have some beers with all the others :)

Nah gut..

He's a musician, member of Soundwaves. Did some nice C-64 remixes.

What has Zaq got to do with THS? Because, if you mean Zaq/DD, he uses his handle with a Q, not a K at the end.

optimus you suck.
ths is a much better demo site than pouet, which is only a blog for lamers anyway.

Tomcat: apparently not :) check the DD site if you doubt me.

Well, he always told me he's Zaq, not Zak, and that's how he's saved in my cellphone too. Whatever.

I personally view pouët.net as a sort of frontend for scene.org. They compliment each other perfectly. One is the store front, they other the warehouse.

Long live pouët.net! Long live scene.org!
Hip hip hurray! Hip hip hurray!

And yes, Optimus is the pouët.net mascot...! Isn't he so soft and cuddly??
Optimus, if you spent the same time as this guy reviewing demos, giving insightful comments, etc, you wouldn't be the star of joke prods.

I found his oneliner comments pretty insightful (and well written, as usual)

Haha, best quote ever, refering to one of Optimus' oneliner braindumps:

Sex fantasies from a scener. Not for the faint of heart. I found the "kindly, kind woman" passage especially twisted, suggesting a mad pit full of inner demons and sinister conflicts, just begging to burst his brain any second. I'm personally glad he found Pouet.net, so he can share his vivid visions with the whole damn world! Though he probably still needs therapy once they find the rotten body of his mother in the basement.
