Lemon Amiga is a hobby project founded and created by me, Kim Lemon, a 35 year old (my age is updated automatically thanks to PHP) man from Sweden. Work began on May 6 2004, and my goal was to create an interactive and high quality games archive combined with a friendly community.
Lemon Amiga is a sister site to the Commodore 64 site Lemon64
, which I launched in the summer of 1998. Commodore 64 and Amiga were both amusing elements in my childhood, and I made these sites with most enthusiasm.
I live with my girlfriend and a British Shorthair cat in a smaller town on the Swedish east coast.
My interests include watching documentaries, and the more extreme the subject is, the more interesting they get. I also like science, which is why I subscribe to a science magazine and enjoy watching Discovery Channel.
Another of my interests is cooking, especially together with my girlfriend. I'm a bit experimental in the kitchen and I'm not afraid of trying new things without following any recipe. I'm also vegetarian, both for health and animal right reasons.
I don't play Amiga nor C64 games much these days. I guess it's because I'm a bit damaged from grabbing 29370 screenshots for the 3357 games on Lemon Amiga. Whenever I play Amiga games on my own I feel like I'm working. However, I still enjoy playing multi-player games with friends. Bubble Bobble in two-player mode and tours in Worms and Slamtilt are great fun!
I have always been a very creative person. I used to paint and draw, but unfortunately I don't do this on paper any more as my creativity has, for some reason, completely moved into my computer. For that reason I sometimes wish that computers never existed.
When it comes to music I'm not stuck in any particular genre. I listen to anything from country and lo-fi indie to oi punk and ska. Some of the bands (links go to YouTube videos) I like are The Moldy Peaches
, 4 Promille
, Heavy Trash
, Johnny Cash
, Tim Armstrong
Some of you probably expect me to be a devoted listener of Amiga MODs or C64 SID-tunes, but that's not for me.
