Question/suggestion by a non-scener forum newbie... flame away!

category: general [glöplog]
ParaPete: you would lose them.

dipswitch: you're probably right, even though many people (myself included) have never released anything, probably never will, and don't even think of ourselves as sceners... yet we like to witness the amazing productions you guys keep developing and feel the need to somehow be connected to this community.

I don't know, I'm probably talking out of inexperience here, but if one is not allowed to enjoy the demoscene without being a scener, would be like saying you can't marvel at Picasso's work since you're not a painter. And of course, Pouet is not the demoscene, but it's a significant part of its culture in my opinion.

By the way, I did catch up on scene history and structures some time ago. Thanks for your input.
What is that "scene" you talk about all the time?

hey dip, lighten up! a good ol' joke is great once in a while! (like the completely ridiculous 'bass' thing)

and any kind of new 'scener' is nice to have, guys that find the subculture interesting and submit their first tries and guys that obsessivly dig into the past to find out what happened and why (jesus, the latter quite scares me once i wrote that up)

pouet scene portal #1!!!

Perhaps we should just add a disclaimer on pouet.net somewhere...
I really wonder what view on the demoscene people have, who mainly got in contact with the demoscene to pouet.net...

I myself got into contact with the demoscene through random encounters with demos or diskmags copied from friend's floppys (Don't Copy That Floppy!).
The texts were considerably less freaky than the average pouet.net thread, that's for sure :)

pouet is where sceners unwind when we are not busy ircing.

(which demo was that again? :))

Do some maths: scene := demoscene_on_all_platforms \ demoscene_on_mac

Somewhere... where no one finds it, just like the scene.org faq (oh boy, I've searched very long for it some weeks ago).

And for some demo-citing:

demos make us happy.
make us happy.
Okkie: I think it was in this one: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=4967

Someone should make a retro intro like that, with a more up-to-date message, like KILL A GOATLOVER FOR YOUR MOTHER, or something.

I accept your bet! :)

Meant for Parapete. Unless anyone else wants to bet??

oh dear, Shane, are you now board member of Melon all of a sudden?
ParaPete: I hold against you. Search on google, I win. If you come to the Ultimate Meeting, a beer would be enough since the travel costs a bit for you. ;)

"feel free to ruin the thread by posting images of naked gay men."

I think, all is said, now for the pics:
On that note I'm off to meet Olivia Newton John for a night of telling strangers "Mathew Broderick is in the sewers and if you rescue him he'll give you a kiss". If they don't believe us and refuse to go down there, Olivia will make crying noises and we'll say "It's Mathew Broderick. He's crying because he's scared and lonely". If and when they eventually crawl into the sewers, Paul "Gazza" Gascoigne will jump out and piss on them.
Oh yeah, and I'm reviving Melon. I'm the captain so anyone wanting to join must be approved by me.
Madenmann: sheesh. that's nothing. he's just a little drunk.
Shane im waiting for you to revive razor

I'm taking a long shot here but I thought BASS referenced the popular sound system library from Un4seen. At least that's what I thought... lol

I agree with Dip! We need more seriosity, so that we can all bask in our adequatulence.
