Oh Jesus almighty master of the heavens and waterwalking king of all kings,

take a gander - my Amiga friends - at this creature of the night.
He who has the gall to write of "vultures and vampires",
while grinding his teeth in that predatory grin,
while grinding to dust the legacy of our dear platform.

Glance at the horror,
the frightful features of this individual,
more CupHead boss than person,
his vacuous gaze an omen in itself.

How can one possibly not see through this stomach-churning excuse for a human being.

How can one possibly not see the conman,
the snake oil peddler who's snake oil peddler enough to sell snake oil to snake oil peddlers?

How can one possibly not see the monstruous ego,
wrapped around a frail husk holding nothing but greed, hunger, vanity and certainly - oh certainly not, my friends - the faintest trace of a soul.

Look!
Look at the shape of things to come.
"Vultures and Vampires, you say?"

Vultures with beaks and claws soaked in blood, says I.

Vampires voraciously sinking their fangs into orphans.
And Werevolves with soiled maleodorant furs.
And Frankenstein monsters .1, .2, .54.
Zombies with twitching shoulders.

Think, beautiful friends of the Amiga,
naive souls,
Raymond Babbits of retrocomputing.

Think and once and for all rend the dark pact you made with this fiend.

Think.

When the NeXT Cube was shown to the world for the first time, we now know that it wasn't ready for release and that all it could really run is a Demo of itself.

I've always had that feeling about AmigaOS 4.x computers. They always fill the screen with a bunch of different windows, amounting to practically nothing of significance.

@MEGA_RJ_MICAL

I think maybe he's a demon, bought forth to reality by the combined insanity and negativity of the Amiga community over the last 25 years since it became irrelevant to the computing world.
Him being involved in the book "From Vultures To Vampires" is entirely too ironic to be anything other than ridiculing the community in front of their faces.

Not to mention he looks like the original "You Mad Bro" meme.



It's uncanny...

@fishy_fis

Friend fishy_fis,

with this,
you have opened the door to another lawsuit:

he'll run to claim his image has been appropriated,
and demand a share of all profit made from the "mad bro meme" merchandise.

Anyway, impressive,
uncanny - truly uncanny indeed!

@Amiga4000

I prefer to place my monitor on top of the desk stand not in front.

Looking straight ahead is better than looking down at a screen.

You can slide the keyboard under the stand when done and have a less cluttered desk.

He's not even looking at the monitor. He's definitely making a classic user error in that photo.

@All Amiga Friends,
is this truly his bathroom, though?

I fail to see any toilet.
Is it, maybe, the System 54 powered thing?

This picture begs the question
"where does he s**t?"

The answer might be similar to this one, about a close relative of his

@MEGA_RJ_MICAL

Hello, I知 Mr. Obvious.

I point out things you know.

I値l tell you that the water痴 dry,
I値l say that plants can't grow.


I might remark that day is dark,

I値l add that girls aren't flirty.

And I値l repeat that sugar痴 tart
,
and washing makes you dirty.


I値l let you know that snails are swift,

and one plus one is three.
And then declare that squares are round
,
and state the sky is green.


You see, I知 kind, so I don稚 mind
,
explaining simple things.

And when I do this just for you
,
I love the joy it brings.


So take a chair and let me share,
and when my lecture stops,
I hope you値l try to understand,
where Trevor痴 poopoo plops!

@Amiga4000

It looks like a study or computer room to me and by the colour of his hair at least 10 years ago. He's probably moved since then. Not much to discuss IMHO.

I'm looking forward to his book though; Vultures to Vampires Volume 2 from David Pleasance and Trevor. God bless the man, whatever brand of bathroom 'throne' he chooses!

@BigD @Karlos

I do not read Amiga Future, but from the date on the magazine it would be possible to trace back the date.

But here is in new the bathroom after renovation.

So what's up with all the Trevor hate? The A1222 has been a disaster, but this sort of opprobrium is usually reserved for Ben Hermans.

If the legal situation was resolved we wouldn't be having this conversation. But since we are...here goes:

First the news as reported:
https://www.amiga-news.de/en/news/AN-2018-08-00009-EN.html

Then Trevor's explanation of the action he took in response:
https://twitter.com/amigadocuments/status/1106379617865216000/photo/1
I'd say this confirms what is mentioned in the Amiganews report above.

Initially there was talk about it taking a few years to complete bankruptcy proceedings in Belgium, hence no desire to file a police report.
Other more ridiculous reasoning has been mentioned since.

Perhaps the truth can be told one day when the lawsuits have been resolved. To be fair we should hear all sides of the story, no?

btw-to this day Anthony Moorley still has no entry on resigning his directorship:
https://companycheck.co.uk/director/910769252/ANTHONY--MOORLEY/companies
and is still listed as A-Eon director here: https://www.azimuthmwd.com/about-us/people
