REPORT FROM THE TCB AND 2 LIFE CREW HALLOWEEN PARTY
by Lars Johansson
The party was held in 1/11 - 3/11 1991. The place was Fredrika
Bremer gymnasiet (a school) in Haninge (just outside Stockholm
(the capitol of Sweden, you idiot!).
Tommy Jonaeson was the person who did the most of the work.
About 250-280 persons were attending. 700 litres of Coke were
sold. Some people drank Beer instead (?CareBeers, Respectabeers,
The following groups were there: The CareBears and 2 Life Crew
(what did you think?), TEX, ULM, Level 16, Delta Force, Electra,
Aggression, The Respectables, Cyber Fox, Sync, Omega, Vector,
Unit 17, TKT, Onyx, Lynx, Flexichron (The Invizibles(TIV), Bomb
Squad (or should I say Trimate), Offbase and The Futures), New
Core, Scum Of The Earth, Syndicate, Synergy, TLN, BI, Inner
Circuit Explorers, Grim Reaper Crew, No Crew and many other
There were very few lamers, most of the people belonged to a
crew. You could sit in the dining hall or in a classroom. If you
got hungry you were able to go to Mc Donalds or Neptun to buy
some food. You could clean yourself at the public bath. Hi-Tech
center were selling computer equipment. The Bitmap Brothers would
have been at the party but they didn't come (just because SOTE
forgot to phone them a last time (they had to sit in England and
wait for... nothing!)).
Demos, movies and contributions to the competitions were shown
with an RGB-projector. Everybody applauded when bombs appeared
All contributions had to run on a normal Atari 520ST but the
contributions were shown on an STE!! The funniest thing everybody
knew was when somebody said something strange like: Now a demo by
xxx och yyy (only swedes will understand this). It was also fun
when they tried to run the "Cuddly Demos" and the "SO Watt"
screen by Sync on an STE!
All visitors got a voting-card. The first
competition was the blipp blopp (music) contest. The winner
turned out to be Scavenger. Then there was a graphics competition
(best piccy) and the winner was Aggression. The winner of the
music (module) competition was Betrayer of Paranoia of Grim
Reaper Crew with "his" tune Battery (Metallica). People were
headbanging when they played that tune!! Omega won the demo
competition with their "fullscreen" plasma and big Norge (Norway)
scroller. Syndicate, Onyx, Lynx, No Crew, SOTE, Trimate, TCB, The
Invizibles and some other people had also made a demoscreen for
The Invizibles screen looked like this: there was megabenders
all over the screen, a vertical scroller (lower, right and left
border was removed), graphics and a tune by Mad Max of TEX. No
party-demo was made (too bad!). TCB had made a mega-bender too,
but a bit different... Syndicate, Onyx, Lynx and some other crews
had also made very nice screens. Some people had made very ugly
screens (they wanted to make the worst screen ever). There was
some ugly animations, ugly scrollers, ugly graphics, bad music
and other shit. One of the worst screens was called Dicksuck and
did not even work.
Electra, Tommy, AN Cool and some other freaks said some really
funny comments! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!
If you're a Swede than you have probably read my report from the
party in SHN. I must say that the spelling erroz was not mine - I
mean... Fokkin' Attle again!! Aaaarggghhh!!!
The author of this article was never heard of again...(ahem)...
The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
