He is not just a programmer, he is a Scener.

If you want to see real computer art, you have to look what the Sceners can do with Demos.

Tends to mix completely different cloths and call it 'creative' will do anything to show that they are different or 'unique' from everyone else.
art to them is all about black and white photographs used by old school cameras. they have the emotion of Emo, but the rebellion of punk rockers. Will have hair put up in fohawks or chop it all on different levels as if to say "watch out, I'm hardcore!"
Scener is someone who will fluxuate between happy and upset atleast 3-4 times in a routine day.
