Propaganda 02 ch01
From C64 Diskmag Wiki
GENESIS is the ultimate #1. We have the very BEST CRACKERS (SNACKY,TYGER,GOBLIN) the BEST MUSICIANS (DEEK,HJE),the BEST CODERS (SES,FGTH) the very BEST ARTISTS (BIZZMO,SCRAP) and THE BEST SPREADERS (ANTICHRIST,STEAMHAMMER). So,FUCK YOU! Right,now THAT is bloody PROPAGANDA... ...And you are reading issue #O2 of it! Boy,oh boy! How low can we go? Dunno,but we'll let you know if we hit the ground. Ok,ok... Well,yes,I'm writing crap again I know... And so what?! Sue me! Get the witness! (Don't ask me... DEEK threatened me with a large carrot... He said I better write that witness-stuff or I'll have to drink another can of that pink-brown IRN-BRU! Yeuch!) OK... Today is Sunday,18.8.1991 and moi returned from France yesterday evening. After 4 weeks of bloody do-nothing-but- burning-in-the-sun I am REALLY happy to be back HOME! Right now I'm doing a 1OOO things at the same time... Editing the first pages of issue #O2 while watching TV,listening to a SIMPLE MINDS CD,etc. etc.pp. It looks like it's going to rain tonight (Hell,what did I expect? This is Germany!) ...and I love it! Well,I guess you don't give a shit... And you don't have to! Just pick another chapter and RRREAD some of our BRILLIANT articles,news,charts and mucho more! We have everything you never dared to dream of. (Sorry,no anal sex this time.) And you know what? IF THIS ISN'T THE FUNNIEST MAGAZINE FUNNIEST MAGAZINE YOU'VE EVER READ... ...then you read some pretty funny magazines! Anyway,we did not SIMPLY SPREAD issue#2. Each copy has a number and we released copies of PROPAGANDA #2 in a LIMITED EDITION of one-million-three-thousand- three-hundred... The copy you are reading right now is #O.OOO.O12... Collect'em all! Well,when I looked through my mail I saw about a million disk-magazines... Gosh! Why does everybody think he has to release a 'magazine'?!? Does anyone really read 1OOO mags every month?! Look at all these issues... "EMANUELLE #6","ARE WE THE BEST #4" (No,you are not. WE are!),FRONTPAGE #15, "SHOCK #3" (The best!),"BITMANIA/AUGUST" "MAGASCENE #3" (Read the comment after the charts! These guys are damn right!), "SANFORIZED #5" (It's almost impossible to read the text as it is displayed as coloured graphics. Well,you could read the text in the memory if you use a monitor. But,why bother? The text is crap anyway.),"WEIRD CRUD #5" (You liked BAD NEWS? Then you'll like this one,too! It's filled up with nonsense... Nothing but nonsense!),"WANTED #2", "EGYPT #4","IMMORTAL FLASH #10" (Nice!), "SCRIPT #3","ROCK'N'ROLE #14" (Cool!), "BRUTAL RECALL #5","WORLDNEWS #9", "DYNASTY #3","AMBITION #5","SOULNEWS #9" "PUBLIC SCANDAL #4","VANDALISM NEWS #3", "VINEWS #10","UNDERGROUND #3","MAMBA#20" "FRESH'N'STICKY #2","FLASHBACK #1" and "GAMERS GUIDE #12". I say,if you want to be informed about the scene read PROPAGANDA,ROCK'N'ROLE, SHOCK and GAMERS GUIDE. ** PROPAGANDA CREDITS .. \/ PROPAGANDA CREDITS \/ __________________ INTRO CODE.....................SES/GENESIS LOGO+SMALL MAMBA.........SES/GENESIS SMALL TV..............BIZZMO/GENESIS MUSIC.............MAGIC MAN/EX-CRAZY.. >< MENU CODE.....................SES/GENESIS 1X1 CHAR-SET...........SCRAP/GENESIS BOTH LOGOS.............SCRAP/GENESIS ICONS.................BIZZMO/GENESIS MUSIC....................HJE/GENESIS THANKS MUST GO TO HORIZON/NEI FOR NTSC-FIXING PROPAGANDA. ..

Don't just read the NEWS and the CHARTS,see you'll find news all through PROPAGANDA,in the FEEDBACK,in the AWARDS and everywhere else! Well,today is 1.9.1991 and PROPAGANDA #2 is still not finished. Writing all this stuff is so f***ing much work! I wish I was back in France... Or even better, back in Scotland (So I can go through 8 weeks of holidays again. Ha!). Tomorrow I'll start my 'civil service'. As you might know every male German has to do 12 months of military service. Well,you can refuse to do that and do 15 months of 'civil service' instead. My job will be to take care of mentally handicaped (so I'll meet INFINITY every day?!) 'children' (age 8-2O years). Not a bad job really. I get plenty of money, I still live at home (not in a military base,thank God!) and I have a lot of free time. By the way,I have to go to a 'civil service school' in Bocholt for about a month. If anyone lives there, tell me! We could meet,if you want. Ahhh,did I tell you about my touring during the last 1O weeks already? Man, it was great! I finished school quite a while ago and I used my sparetime to travel around a bit. And after I have finished my civil service I'll visit some friends in the States and Canada. (Well,if there's anything left of it... You know,GOTCHA is in the States right now and stupid as he is he might accidently sink Manhattan...) Anyway,here's a little report about what happened while you didn't hear from me. ANTICHRIST ON TOUR! ANTICHRIST ON TOUR! ___________________ Well,a couple of weeks ago we decided to have a little G*P meeting. So,one early Saturday morning SCRAP picked me up with his car and we drove to Luedinghausen (near Recklinghausen) to pick up HJE,our new musician. When we finally arrived we were hanging around at his place for a while. Believe it or not,HJE is addicted to tea! If he doesn't drink a certain amount of cups of tea he starts puking!! So,since SCRAP wouldn't let HJE puke all over his little G*P-car we urged him to drink enough while he played some of his latest tunes for us. He made some of the music for the latest demo from SES and VIOLATOR II from SCRAP. You'll also find his music in quite aa few new games... We called SES and told him we'd be in Hannover (He lives around there...) in about 2 hours. Since he does not really live in the city but somewhere hidden in the woods he was supposed to meet us at the exit of the 'Autobahn'. Finally we left Luedinghausen heading for Hannover. SCRAP is one hell of a driver (Joke!),so we reached the meeting place too early. After waiting for about 1O minutes SES arrived in his parents' Golf. After a mutual 'Hello' we drove to SES's home, following his Golf. It was way faster than SCRAP's old MAZDA 323,so we had some problems keeping up with him... (We should have taken my 14 years old Ford Escort instead! Hehehe...) Well, after hours of driving through woods, fields and little villages we finally arrived! And there it was... The big bad heavy heavy monster mashine on which SES had coded this main-program! The funny thing is,I was totally pissed off how stupid 3DK and JACK DANIELS had messed up CORRUTION. I had shown it to SCRAP and he hated it,too. Later when we were at HJE's place we showed him CORRUPTION and he hated it,too. Now we showed it to SES and he couldn't help laughing! Finally we decided to kick JACK DANIELS and 3DK out. SES showed us a preview of the "MAMBA Intro" and we all loved it! You know,when I told 3DK about the MAMBA Intro he loved it,too, but JACK DANIELS was afraid to use it as he feared MAMBA. (Haha!) Now that they both joined DOMINATORS (after the other groups didn't want them...) they spread a note claiming they were proud of being kicked out of GENESIS because I was a dictator! Geeee... A DICTAAATOR! Hahaha... Ever seen anyone being more desperate not to loose their faces?!? See,it is true I did not tell them they were kicked out although everybody else knew it already because we wanted to avoid that they would say they had LEFT us. Now,as they couldn't claim THAT any- more they say they are "proud" of being KICKED out! Haha... They also wrote I only kicked them out because they did not write what I told them to. (Ohh,you brave little boys!) Facts look a bit different though! WE (not I) agreed on kicking them out for many reasons... 1.They always told lies about TYGER and WILDSTYLE. 3DK was acting like a king and said to them he'd tell me to kick them out. When WILDSTYLE told me that I said: "He better not try to turn us up against each other,otherwise I will kick HIM." But 3DK didn't stop telling me lies about TYGER and I was really getting pissed off... WILDSTYLE even left because he really hated 3DK. 2.TDM coded a little demo-preview which was not meant to be spread. I told 3DK not to spread CORRUPTION until a whole spread-disk would be full. He agreed, although he had spread it ALREADY!!!! He said he would WAIT although he HAD MAILED ALL SPREADDISKS WITH CORRUPTION ALREADY!! And to fill that disk up he even spread TDM's "SYNERGY" preview! 6 days AFTER they both had sent it to all their contacts they finally sent it to the OTHER GENESIS MEMBERS!!!! G*P were the LAST to know about it. 3.They took a lot of people into GENESIS and let them pay money. They said they collect this money for originals... Well,we usually don't pay any money for anything,but for once TYGER needed some to get NORTH&SOUTH quick,but 3DK refused to give him the money. 4.They CHEATED the charts to make people think they don't cheat!! This sounds weird,I know... But,when DERBYSHIRE RAM returned his answers of the interview (which was actually done for BAD NEWS and a comment in front of the text said so,but JACK DANIELS removed my introducing text because he didn't want anybody to know that it was not made for CORRUPTION but BAD NEWS.) he also sent one of his monthly rankings. I put it into the interview because in the BAD NEWS "prominent profile" there are always rankings aswell... But JACK DANIELS removed DERBYSHIRE's RANKINGS again because G*P was on #1 and he said people don't give a fuck for DERBYSHIRE RAM's rankings... (Well,I do! He tries to be fair!) In fact JACK DANIELS removed the ranks for only one reason: People could think it's cheated when G*P is #1 in a G*P magazine! A lot of people sent me their votings,asking me to pass them over to CORRUPTION. I did, but 3DK claimed he never received that package! Strange,isn't it? On these voting-papers G*P had by far the most points. 5.They made many spelling mistakes. That's why I sent them all the news I knew as a finished text-file already. They didn't use that finished text but re-wrote all the news,of course with plenty of spelling mistakes in it... 6.CENSOR released WONDERLAND 8 and it was really the best demo of the month. JACK DANIELS refused to review it as he wanted BONZAI's LETHAL DISPLAY to be the best demo of the month in that issue. We told him it wasn't fair to ignore CENSOR's demo just because he favoured BONZAI. He did it anyway. 7.3DK and JACK DANIELS are typical Germans... (Wer sich auf die verlaesst ist verlassen.) They always claim to be sooo objective. Well,was their note objective? No,it wasn't and you really don't need an extra pair of glasses to figure THAT out. JACK D. and 3DK were both always talking bad about MAMBA on the phone but JACK D. was afraid to use the Anti-MAMBA-intro. He is not objective,but a coward. See,he DOES rag on WILDCAT. Of course WILDCAT is a ripper (at least that's what the FAW makes us all believe,but can we non-Italians really check it?) Well, CORRUPTION ragged on WILDCAT,because everybody does,so they had nothing to fear. CORRUPTION writes bad about any- one they think they can write bad about without risking to get into trouble. Is THAT objective? No way! See,we didn't tell them to make any G*P propaganda (at least not more than 'PROPAGANDA',and if you seriously think 'PROPAGANDA' is G*P propaganda than you didn't understand a shit...) We wanted them to be fair and to rag on people who did bad things and write good about people who did good things. What they did was to write good about people they thought are important and they wrote bad about people they thought they couldn't harm them. 8.They always messed the char-sets up by using the 1x2 char-set with small 1x1 exclamation marks and some other small extra chars. It looked totally stupid. So,we ALL decided to kick them out... Besides,if I was a dictator,why would people like SCRAP,DEEK,BIZZMO,SNACKY,SES TYGER,GOBLIN,HJE,ZORLAC and all the others stay in?!? We in GENESIS*PROJECT stick together,not to be famous,but just because we are friends... Sadly JACK D. and 3DK are 2 silly little fools who never really belonged to G*P. (3DK is 13 years old...). Anyway,back to our little G*P meeting... We stayed at SES's place until about 1O O'Clock in the evening before we left him. We brought HJE back home and stayed at his place to listen to some more of his great tunes. Finally we left him at 1 O'Clock and arrived in Aachen at 3 O'Clock in the night. And I sure was tired... Next month I'll tell you a bit about my Scotland tour. Some pretty weird things happened. Ok,today is 6.9.91 and I really have to get this mag out now,as a lot of people kept on asking for it. Well,here it is! We hope you like it! We installed 2 new musics... Look at the border-icons in the text-display of PROPAGANDA. You'll see a music-icon (the one next to the menu-Icon 'M'!). If you press fire you can turn the music on and off. If you push the joystick up you get to hear the first tune,if you push the joystick down you'll get the second music. Both were done by HJE again.
