The party is over for about a week now and as you might have recognized, I already have put up most of my participations. But I wanted to share a little more with you, especially the feeling that, after a long time not being at any party, I had a great time there and felt welcome by everyone I met. Especially I want to give a shoutout to streettuff, my dear TRSi buddy, whom I met again after three years. It was a pleasure to spend some time with you there! Of course I had some entries prepared and here are the complete results now:

Well, Nordlicht demoparty 2017 is coming around again and that is traditionally (I hesitate to write that, because I haven’t been there in the past years) the party I like to support the most, because I like the people who organize it and I am grateful that they do. I will support it most likely this year again, but in what ways is still a little undecided. I have something resting on my HD that is the remains of a demo that did not get made (obviously) that I could release. Its a little rusty, but still its a piece that I do like a lot. Another thing that really gets me going right now is something I am working on with my dear friend Virgill, who invited me into his project and to be honest, that was exactly what I needed to counter my demotivation and frustration that I had (and still have a little) about the demoscene in general for the last 1,5 years. You might have recognized that by seeing no new releases from me over that time. But I kind of hope that this is some kind of initial spark, that gets me going again in my own pace and for my own good only. Lets see if I can avoid having another 4 months slip by unnoticed and get some releases going in 2017.
Just to let you know, I am pausing all my demoscene activity for a while. The reason for that is that I do not feel motivated anymore after how the year started. I was full of motivation back then, that emerged at the end of last year. I even planned to release a track every month and some gfx aswell, but those thoughts went away pretty fast. Of couse there is a reason for that, but I’d rather not write about all that here, because I guess there are not that many people who ask for it outside my friends, who know already.
What is rather unfortunate is, that Nordlicht demoparty is up in 1,5 months and I planned to go there, since I couldn’t be there last year. I registered the day it was possible and planned to bring a bunch of releases, but now I do not even care about going. If that doesn’t change, I will miss the opportunity again, to meet some awesome demosceners for the first time, like Elko or Slator and of course miss out on meeting all the other important-to-me ones too. You know who you are!
I guess we’ll see, how everything works out, but at the moment, I am hitting the Pause-Button on demoscene activity.
