From the game asciijump, by
Grzegorz Moskal and others, 2003. via
It has three play modes, World Cup, Training, and network games. In World Cup, it has players like Erykah Badu, Charlie Parker, Thom York, and Bjrök, all musicians that I do not understand.
Yoshi Sodeoka’s ASCII Rock. Found this via his psychedelic gif animations (recommended). Just another ASCII-conversion perhaps, but made in 2003.
