·a new vga group is out... societies vga division is releasing its own paks berlin is the name we're the art scene terrorists. looking for artists. -- maytag man

·Searching for Good ansi makers for a group called t.S.S ( tHE^Supreme^Sabotage ) apply form can be found here , fill up and send to Soultraper


·I have just learned that the entire sodium feasco (ie. him dying), was complete and utter bullshit. I am absolutely shocked to learn that this terrible news was all made up by some people in #ansi.

It's great he's alive, im relieved... But still, I can't help but wonder what possesses someone to make up something so seriously demmented as this. This is playing with peoples minds, and making people feel bad about a situation that never happened..

·On the 12th, #ansi had a 'TOP 10 ELITE PPL' contest. However, no one could come to a decision, as well really, the entire channel kept voting for themselves :)

·Natalee, creator's wife, came on irc this month a few times. Most of #ansi was popping foreskins on the site of her (her nick :>). On her leaving the channel, most of us we're begging for her to come back.. (exciting news of the month).

·Creator of former group Saga and Decadence has quit the leadership of Decadence to help out yet another new coming art group that has release 3 successful packs called Society.

·Also Creator has a new art FTP site "for the scene" You can find this LARGE art archive at with an anonymous login.

·Note from Radman: "Everyone must join the acidRC5 team!" Yeah, this RC5 team is competing against major universities and corporations, so if you can help crack the code, then by all means join the team. To pick up the client, go here:, and to find out the latest stats on how our boys are going,


rants and raves for november..

·Well, this news is about me, The Extremist. As I have been QC'd 3 times in a row from the ANSI department of Fire by Nail, I've decided to leave the group and concentrate my energies in Mistigris. Nail seems to have an obsession about making "perfect" packs, thus forgetting about exploration and originality...

Mistigris is the exact contrary, mainly aiming exploration, ie actual *art*, what the scene has lacked since Eerie's departure. With Quip's collaboration, I will take care of the ANSI division. I'm back at the "drawing board" again, too, so I'll produce more than a logo every two months.
