Well, it was an instant joke: The Swedes want to name their
parties using the word "fuck" in every language! Alas, the party
itself got cancelled (for reasons unknown to me), so what we are
left with is the invitro itself.
Upon starting the intro we get blasted by a Crazy Q tune. What
can I say? He has never let me down in the audio department :)
The party's logo starts swinging up and down and after a short
while a pattern involving filled circles is dropped in the
background, doing a weird animation.
Shortly after that, the colours fade to white. Some vertical
bars get distorted as to give depth, making a cool looking
effect. But one colour only? That is rectified quickly. First we
get 2 different colours, and then we get 15 col bars on screen!
...and then it's over (almost). The screen goes black and the
bottom half is used to display the invite text, while the upper
half is filled with an aesthetically pleasing effect: Some
graphics are interlaced with an effect that reminds the
beginning of their Outline 06 invitro. Of course this is done in
DHS style, that is half the pixels are displayed each frame, so
you get some flickering, but it's not that bad, and the effect &
graphics make up for it.
So there you have it: a small intro done quickly by the looks of
it, but still nice. If I hadn't booked tickets for Paracon 8,
I'd certainly would consider going there instead. Although, if
the party had been cancelled it would have been a big disappointment
for me. All things considered, I'm sorry that it
