Mirage will probably be most remembered as the group behind the message mag
'Chit Chat', and the group where Danny released his slideshow :)
1995 - Dutch swapper Sascha left for Mellow sometime between january and
april. The year's first issue of Chit-Chat was released on the first of
april, with a new coeditor - Magic from Applause, previous editor of
Applause's mag "Thing". Magic did not stay in the group long, but in the
short period of time he was a member, he brought with him a LOT of
controversy. He left the group just before the Somewhere in Holland party in
early july, on highly unfriendly terms, and joined TRSI. Mirage later
released an 'anti-magic' intro, and there was also an article is Essence's
"ROM #5" concerning the matter. No further issues of Chit-Chat were ever
Dutch graphician Danny joined Anarchy. He released a slideshow called
"Forgotten" (92) in Mirage before leaving.

editors: Tomcat, Retep. Released at The Party 92.
review: CC #8 opens with a STUNNING title picture by Hof, and continues
into a nice magpart. The font is not unlike the eurocharts font, and is
nicely readable in pastel colors. Jester is one of my favourite musicians,
but his tune for this mag is a little bland... This is really a
messagebox, but this time features some cool articles too... The pictures
at two sides of the panel is a real nice idea, and affords the mag some
identity of its own! Nicely done, with more to read this would be a GREAT
mag! Worth the download for the picture alone.
Some text in the mag suggests an intro by Crackerjack, but I have only
the mag executable... [glenn]

code: n/a, gfx: n/a, music: "Basic Instinct" by Jester/Sanity.
Chit-Chat #14 (1994, 30.12, AGA Diskmag).
information: The release date is a rough guess, based on comments in CC
#15 that it was prepared for The Party 5, but released a few days after
due to a few bugs.
Chit-Chat #15 (1995, 01.04, AGA Multifile Diskmag).
code: Protec, gfx: Titan/Bomb (title), Danny/Spaceballs (main), music:
"Junkie" by Virgill/Essence (The Player 6.0A format), editors: Magic,
review: CC has become a nicely designed diskmag, with a good selection of
articles. The mag's original messagebox functions are now more of an
afterthought than the real attraction. The size of the mag is a problem,
though, with the relatively low amount of articles and just one tune, this
mag should NOT take more than a single disk...instead it fills nearly two!
We suspect the gallery section has a lot of the blame for this. The mag
comes on two disks, but can be easily installed on a harddisk.
Unfortunately, this would prove to be the final issue. [glenn]

Models Inc (1995, 09.07, AGA 40k Intro).
code/gfx: Protec, music: Fabian.
5th in the Somewhere In Holland 95 intro competition.
review: Again a little limited, though perhaps less so than the other
intro. This one features digitized pictures of actresses from the TV
series Models Inc. This is essentially another one-routine intro, with
some bitmap manipulation being performed on the actresses' faces, as
well as a texturemapped cube with even more mugs. Quite unexciting,

SIH95 Intro (1995, 09.07, AGA 40k Intro)
code: Jack, gfx: Diesel8 (logo), Retep, music: Hollywood.
8th in the Somewhere in Holland 95 intro competition.
review: Quite limited this, with only a morpher/ripple routine on a face
as its only real effect. Other than that, there's just a nice logo and
some music. Too limited to have any real impact. [glenn]
