Thanks! We had fun!

mold at Voxbotn

Our alt-rock 90s band ‘mold’ will be playing at Voxbotn, a festival in the heart of Tórshavn. Here’s an almost complete playlist. Mind you, our production budget was next to nil, so the sound quality is not too great.

THEA500 Mini coming in 2022!

I find it difficult to describe what the Commodore Amiga means to me and has meant to me in the past, so the announcement of THEA500 Mini makes me very happy, indeed. The retro community knew it was coming and owning the C64 Maxi by the same company, I’m fairly confident that they’ll do a fine job. Sure I own a real Amiga, use FS-UAE on my Mac and have an Amiga distro on my Raspberry Pi, but all this means that the Amiga is still alive and increasing in popularity. New magazines coming out (check out Amiga Addict) and also, try to google ‘Amiga NG’ to get a glimpse of all the new Amiga systems.

Sure, there is heaps of nostalgia involved here, but most current Amigans feel that Amiga had a soul. With unprecedented power and chips named Denise, Agnes and Paula, it truly was a wonderful machine. Long live Amiga!
