Greetings and ekolonuusta. I am mirrorbird and I talk too much because I am lonely inside.

I LOVE: Italo disco, spacesynth, 8-bit Speccy and Atari tunas, and the mighty flag CYBORG JEFF.
I LIKE: a lot of modules and SIDs, and bad novelty songs with funny lyrics.
I DISLIKE: weepy emo guitar shit, and cover versions that get the notes wrong (who makes these and why?).

Outside of Necta, you might catch me listening to EBM, industrial, trad Goth, IDM/glitch, synthpop, retro pop, symphonic metal, and my neighbour's annoying chihuahua.

I am the same age as Pac-Man. The first scene demo I ever saw was probably "The Lyra II" by ESI (1991). I have done 8-bit pixel art in a handful of demos, and wrote a few bad XMs that never went anywhere near a demo. Parties attended: Forever, IVP, Raww.orgy, Sundown.

Most "birdie" stuff relates to a demoparty of that name, but Birdie's Delight is about me

I made the smileys , , , and (based on and ) and improved , and did those "colourful" platform icons that we seem to be keeping for now. The platform colour choices follow actual rules which I will bore you with another time. RULES CAN NOW BE SEEN BELOW.

Back up your faves with this fine regex:
<span class=\"songname\">.*?<a[^>]*song/(\\d+)/\">(.*?)</a>.*?</span>.*?<span class=\"artistname\">.*?<img[^>]*>.*?<a[^>]*>(.*?)</a>

I may transcribe English lyrics if you ask nicely.

And finally: I currently have the privilege of hosting the entire musical works of our Necta spacepop artist flag Spiral (Mats Antonsson) . Contact me (or him) if you can't find 'em.

THE PLATFORM COLOURS
---------------------------------------

These are mostly based on sound-chip family, but sometimes on machine family (e.g. a Sam Coupé is pretty much an upgraded Spectrum). I don't care if somebody improves my scribbly chip graphics, but I hope they keep the colour scheme. Before I was here, everything was an identical-looking black chip graphic: ask any user-interface expert (the ones who say UI, not UX) about the value of the first glance at colour.

A = "Amiga" = amber (orange) => all native Amiga stuff (DMB, AHX, MOD, etc.)
P = "PC" = purple => all PC-related stuff (Buzz, PC-IT, etc.), and "typically PC" stuff like MIDI
S = "SID" = scarlet (red) => the C64 SID, probably worthy of its own category
Y = "YM" = yellow => YM, AY and friends: Spectrum, Atari, CPC, OPLL, and "unrelated family" like Sam Coupé
N = "Nintendo" = navy (blue) => NES, DS, Game Boy, GBA
E = "eight-bit" = emerald (green) => obscure 8-bits like VIC-20, BBC Micro, Atari VCS
black = anything else => wild, live, explicit sizecode (16K, 32K, etc.), other obscure platforms

---------------------------------------
A WORD I MADE UP
---------------------------------------

I have decided that if you do a cover of a great song, because you know that even a bad cover will be moderately good, simply because the original is great, you are "Stormlording". I'm not ashamed of trying to push my word. We really do need a word for this.

#1: Cyborg Jeff Friday is how we get our arts funding from the EU. We have to play 15% Belgian music.

NECTAS THAT I HAVE MET IN REALITY
---------------------------------------

epso (April 2022, in London)

ummm... that's all so far. But I think serpent and Stinsen are up for something. Basically every Necta wants to meet me, except the mod and admin team, who are aware that I'm a shit.
