Jamaica 11 ch01 Editorial
From C64 Diskmag Wiki
editorial iopop ---------------------------------------- once again, once again we show that we still are alive. in these days of war and burning flesh. always pointing towards a new goal to settle. never perfect and never the best but always there to give you a bi- monthly pleasure for your eyes and your psychedelic mind. this time more delayed than ever but what can you except after a summer like this - too much sun, alcohol and too little girls. you can never get enough of them. :-) so now when school have started and the autumn is hiding the last signs of this great summer, we thought it was time for a fresh new edition of jamaica again. as you might have noticed, IOPOP is on the keys. and this time more weird than ever before. i really looked forward to this moment writing the editorial. what can we give you this time? well, as always the usual chapters like addies news, charts, backside and the interview of course. especially you should check out the interview! who is the victim this time? i won't tell you now! the special chapters this time concern different subjects like : who was JOE ENGRESSIA? what was OPERATION SUNDEVIL? why are they talking screenblankers on USS ENTERPRISE? and also a bit about how a typical hacker lives her/his life in 2020. we've also started a new project called ASSIMILATE where we'll write about synth. we'll try our best to cover up anything from industry/crossover to synthpop/techno. if you are interested then you are always welcome to reflect or contribute to our articles. i must say that i've written nearly all chapters except for 2 ones; the interview was made by BUNGALOW and another chapter was made by TCHAD. well, better take the full credit list code ..............................iopop logo .......................FRENCH FLAIR font ...........................BUNGALOW music 1 .....................ROB HUBBARD music 2 ...................THE ALIEN/bcd music 3 .........................ECHO/cp hey, THE ALIEN, i chose 'i'm ready' as i thought that was the best one. if you want to help us improve jamaica then don't hesitate. just make a logo tune or maybe write a small text! soon, when we will make a new outfit, i'll try to use as much graphics as possible. althogh, there are som restr- ictions concerning music: only single-speeded tunes are allowed and the location must not exceed $1000- $2000! well, at this very moment i do not exactly know what to write or say. i've been unactive nearly whole summer. the hours behind the computer can easily be counted on both hands. but one thing is for sure, i realized thtt the c64 is not everything. (guess i sounds like a saviour, but let it be that way.) and i really don't understand what i've done the past 2 years when i instead of going to see friends, used the computer. yes, i made friends with many people via the computer too nut the friends here are not comparable to the ones living nearby. my splitted mind and claustrophobial thoughts ended up in the article called state of schizofrenia. i think that all sceners must stop one day and start to think what we really are doing. is it worth all the time we put infront of our computer? what are we really getting out of it? i think my carreer in the scene is just a milestone in my life. but for sure i believe it's going to help me later in my life as the time here have given me new view on life and people overall. can you imagine a world like the scene. it actually exists. somewhere over the earth, a sphere which no one can see but it really is there. and it is called the scene. but sadly, my dreams of a whole world constructed like this very scene is a utopia. i'm very curious about the future. what will happen? we who are in the scene are actually a new generation of living for youth. though there is some real oldies in this scene too (hi gunnar!). but any way our time in the scene must mean something for our children and their children and even their children too. imagine when they are showing old demos from the c64 in the 22th century. what a feeling that would be. another thing that we could be proud about is the new artform we have created. demos! well, i wasn't there when they made the first demo but all of you, like me, has surely made some part of a demo sometimes and know the feeling of a finished work. and by the fact that demos are free to spread means that all people can get hold of them. but that might be the new age of the art where it's free to copy, and take it home. another thing that will make professors happy is all the history we've written, and now i mean all the mags, in some cases even demos. like the stoneage- people created big paintings in caves and on big rocks we are making mags. just to save something for our coming generations. just to show how bad everything was when we were young? :-) we cannot determine whether we'll make a bad or a good impression on the following generations, can we? i don't have any facts from the future, i just have visions! well, the past lines are maybe too deep for you. but i don't care as it's what i feel right now. better take a look on all the other chapters in this issue as you won't find much more text here. JAMAICA - a good excuse for not having sex tonight!
