.: Bear Hugs Forever :.
At Solskogen 2018
âÊâ¢Í¡ á´¥â¢Í¡ Êâ
This song is a tribute to BÃ¥rd Harald Fosse (BHF)
who very sadly passed away April 23rd 2018.
âÊâ¢Í¡ á´¥â¢Í¡ Êâ
After being away from the demoscene for 13 years,
at my return at Solskogen 2012, BÃ¥rd invited me into
Brandon Walsh aka Daniel Wressle's tent and spent a
good 4 hours telling stories from ye olden days, the
C64 scene and instantly making me feel like home in an
environment I've been away from for so long.
BÃ¥rd was always among the first to give me a big
bear hug when we met at demo parties and made me
as well as everyone else feel welcome.
We became friends and had interactions outside of the
demoscene after a while and I appreciate and treasure
every second I've spent talking or chatting with BHF.
I consider myself lucky having met an known him and
as the lyrics in the song say, I hope he is in a better
place and that we can meet again somehow.
Bear Hugs Forever to BÃ¥rd Harald Fosse. RIP BHF.
.: Lyrics :.
I hope youâre happy where youâre now
And that we meet again somehow
Iâll bring an old C-64
That you can help me to restore
Weâll watch a demo, code some basic
And play R-Type until weâre spacesick
I say this the only way I can
Bear hugs forever to you, man

Credits to litn aka Anneli aka my wife for providing
me with some very last-minute vocals for this song.
They are not perfect, but better than nothing
considering the message and meaning behind the song.
I also want to extend my deep gratitude to MONOMAGNUS
aka Miu for his patience and guidance during the
production of this song. I hope that with his help
this is the best sounding song I've delivered in
a demoscene competition so far.
Lastly I'd like to thank Modulo One for his support
and help and to my daughter for her tremendous
patience during the last months where I've been knee
deep in renovation work at home and thus a
dysfunctional kitchen as well as all of my spare time
being poured into this song. I love you and your
mother very much!
