Schlagwort-Archive: Commodore

Everything you need to know about: Commodore C64

Als Sammler denkt man zwar an ein paar Stellen des Unboxings von 1982… „Neiiiin, nicht die Box auf den Boden werfen und den C64 so hin und her schubsen“ – aber dieses Video ist trotz dem ruppigen Umgangston mit Hardware der 80er einfach toll. Fasst es doch alles zusammen was es rundum den C64 zu wissen gibt. 2 Stunden lang geballte Commodore C64-Unterhaltung und Wissensvermittlung. Und jetzt? Erstmal den C64 auspacken und mitgemacht. Lesson one: Flashing Cursor and what its good for :-)

Sidologie – C64 as Jarre!

Do you like the music of the Commodore 64, and/or Jean Michel Jarre? Well, this may be for you!

Evoking classic JARRE using C64 music remakes, Project Sidologie is a Kickstarter by C64 composer Marcel Donné. It aims to be a 6 CD box set at its completion, and also offers stems and samples for musicians. The mind blowing artwork is by artist Trevor Storey.

The campaign is already on stretch goals, and it has recently been announced that C64 legends Matt Gray and Allister Brimble will contribute to the 6th album if the funding level is reached. There are lots of interesting rewards on offer including a vinyl option, t-shirts, and art book!

Project Sidologie ends on the 14th May, and can be found at sidologie.com

Remembering Commodore (1954 – 1994): alive and dead

Two fascinating videos for all of you who do not know or remember how dualistic this company was: up one minute …

Happy 29th Birthday, Amiga!

Vor 29 Jahren stellte Commodore erstmals den Amiga auf einer Veranstaltung in New York vor. Wer sich den 23. Juli bisher noch nicht in einem Kalender markiert hat, sollte dies vielleicht nun tun, nächstes Jahr wird immerhin ein runder Geburtstag gefeiert!

A Must See for Amiga Fans: Dave Haynie talks about the last days of Commodore in April 1994

Just can´t imagine that this story happened 20 years ago!

Thats the right idea of the Amiga!

It’s Not Dead. It’s Not Sleeping. It’s The Amiga. The demise of Amiga should have come about when Commodore went bankrupt in 1994. It was, however, a survivor from the beginning. Even before it was a Commodore product.
