I celebrate May 31st, I. International Amiga Day with a free download of my electronic music project Analog Sheep’s Amiga tribute song “I Miss My Amiga 500”.
Free downloads are available on my SoundCloud and Bandcamp pages and open for the whole weekend until Monday June 2nd.
And here is its music video for YouTube users.
So, what is I. International Amiga Day?
Amiga Day is an idea put forward by a Facebook group called Amiga Day. Here is the manifesto of the International Amiga Day published in the group description.
Amiga Day (I. International Amiga Day)
We, Amiga users hereby declare the 31st of May as international day of the Amiga, the Home Computer that made us so much fun, that made us begin a career, that made us think differently about computers and games and made us a lot of friends with Amigas.
Amiga is Forever and We really want that to happen. Please share the idea with your Amigan friends to keep the Amiga flame forever!
How can you participate? It’s easy – On Amiga Day do any of the following Amigan activities:
– You must switch on at least 1 Amiga computer.
– You must run at least 1 Amiga game (emulator is accepted).
– You must āwhitenā a yellowed Amiga.
– You must give your non-working Amiga to a technician, who can make a working machine out of the non-working ones. Lather on the reborn working Amiga must be donated.
– In case you are a technician you must make at least one Amiga working from non-working Amigas.
– If you have an Amiga T-Shirt, you must wear it.
– If none of the above you can make a photo of yourself with an Amiga and share it with your friends on any social networks.
– Or whatever Amiga related activity you like…
So, let’s make the first International Amiga Day on Jay Miner’s 82nd birthday a real celebration of the best ever home-computer – The Amiga!
Please Invite your fellow Amigans and SHARE the Amiga feeling to everybody!
See you on 31st of May of 2014, on the first Amiga Day!
Now go and enjoy your Amiga Day full of Amiga activities!
