I CAN'T THIS FUCKIN KLAWIATURA

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.

I may transcribe English lyrics if you ask nicely.

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

serpent wrote me this beautiful song: Birdie's Delight

And finally: I am hosting the entire music collection of our Necta spacepop artist flag Spiral (Mats Antonsson) . Link available on request.

ICONS AND PLATFORMS
---------------------------------------

I made the smileys , , , , and (based on and ) and added frames to , and did those "colourful" platform icons that we seem to be keeping for now.

The platform colour choices follow actual rules, mostly based on sound-chip family, but sometimes on machine family (e.g. a Sam Coupé is pretty much an upgraded Spectrum). I hope any future redesigns will keep the colour scheme.

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

LITTLE-KNOWN NECTA FACTS
---------------------------------------

#1: Cyborg Jeff Friday is how we get our arts funding from the EU. We have to play 15% Belgian music.
#2: There used to be "djrandom hour" where nobody could request songs for a solid hour, and they were all randomly selected. People got so upset about it.
