Hi there.

I found another interesting site: Click here. It's some sort of online game for which you can create your own levels and someone did a halfquake thing for it. Though I don't know the controls for it, all I could do is turn around with the arrow keys and fire with F. But I guess that's why it's called Halfquake hehe...

I also found out that someone on www.sms.at created a mobile phone logo called "Halfquake" which looks like an evil smiley. This is only working for austrians, but it's cool anyway cause I don't know who did this.

Also I forgot to mention the comic page "Kingpen" by moxdiamond (sorry dude, but better late than never): Click here (www.kingpen.tk) and another french forum entry containing a link to halfquake: SiteDuZero

It's amazing how halfquake spreads...

Next thing is that it is quite hot here and I'm totally lazy. I can't do anything but sweat, sweat and curse the sun out there. It would be cool if someone could make a giant disc above this city avoiding sunbeams and heat. It would cost almost nothing cause on this disc would be enough space for lots of sponsors heh. Of course this already happened in one episode of the Simpsons in which Burns made such a disc and stole Springfield its sun. But hey, I'd be glad if someone were that rich and could do something like that. I hate sun and heat and I fucking want to finish personal halfquake without sweating to death.

As for the tshirt contest I already got 10 people who sent me something. More would be appreciated of course. (:

I wonder why www.gamerschronicle.com is down .. anyway, I'll go back to somewhere, waiting for autumn and winter.

Stay dried.

Thanks to you guys.

So, and what about me? Or the farm? I don't know. I produced a song called "broken hive". Download here. If you want the text just mail me or send me a phq message.

I'm trying to set up a totally new system for phq. Related to rpg's with your own victim, creatures and other interesting stuff. But it'll take some time to complete. So I'd just say you stay patient. Or dead. Something like that.

Another day in school, a rainy, but warm weather outside, trying to get my mood down to a world called "Depression",.. passing people, who aren't relevant to the world - things would be the same if one of them weren't given an existence -, another english discussion.

Naive girl: "Philipp, what do you think about reality soaps and Starmania?"
(Starmania is a TV Show in which people from the whole country get voted for best singer who cover songs - a TV Show for getting producers of the show richer and richer so to speak)

Me, surprised that she dares asking me: "Heh, Starmania... Look, I think it's unfair if people become famous for covering songs. People who are not able to compose their own songs, who get said: "Dude/Bitch (or whatever she/he is called), you gotta sing this song, using this melody, you become famous and I get the money, awright? Ah, and wear something thin - know what I mean!"

Another girl: "So you don't think Starmania is cool?"

Me, grinning: "No, because it has nothing to do with music or even art. See, I'm a musician and -"

Another girl: "YOU?! You're a musician?!"

Me, getting really angry: "Yes, and - "

Another girl: "So you sing and play instruments?"

Me: "Yes, you see I -"

Another girl: "Can we hear something?"

Teacher, really intelligent annd enngllish goodly tallck: "Philipp, can we listen to one of your songs?"

Me: "Sure, I got one right here in my Mini Disc player, wait a moment."

I got my Mini Disc player and they all listened to "Rainbow Zombies" and "Senseless fools" (insider, check out the lyrics on my page). They liked it and the teacher even wanted a CD.

The lesson ended and I went outside, feeling abused, raped by ears who didn't hear what my music really was. They just heard the melody, not the message or the spirit. They didn't listen to me, they listened to sounds they converted into a cheap language they better understand. And after a few minutes they had forgotten it anyway. A senseless action, a waste of time for senseless beings.
