UZI Professional Series Handcuffs

November 16th, 2018 Comments off

You can get a pair at this: online DVD and electronics store now! They used to sell CD:s and DVD:s.

And for the non-Swedish speakers I simply have to mention that this item is categorized as: “hem-tradgard” the word-for-word-translation is: “home-gardening” and that is as hilariously entertaining as it is amusing!

The other possible bits? It’s really not my cup of tea (I’m not a bouncer or any of the other…).

However, UZI is a very well-known brand, Glob-ally.

More Words

October 21st, 2018 Comments off

Somliga saker kan vi bestämma över, andra inte.

Vi bestämmer över våra åsikter och vår inställning, vårt begär och vår motvilja – med andra ord allt sådant som vi gör själva.

Men kroppen bestämmer vi inte över, inte våra ägodelear heller, vårt anseende och vår ställning – kort sagt sådant som vi inte gör själva.

Det vi bestämmer över är till sin natur fritt, okuvat, obundet, medan det vi inte bestämmer över är svagt, fängslat och hämmat.

Det är inte vårt.

It is ancient knowledge, but it is still important though.

Cold V

11 (eleven) centigrade, still cold. There are some scholars that say it is due to the Gulf stream slowing down. If true then it will get even colder here up north or “You know nothing John Snow.”.

Atlanta? Dark Horse In The Run For The Bass

April 17th, 2018 Comments off

Roughed bass it has always been like that since the mid 1990-somethings.You’ll all need to understand. Bass or not. There will be problems, we are educated? Spent time in the libaray. The young one does not anything other apart from lyrics. He wants to meet you? My little one? I have spent a lifetime serving bass and breaks. If that it my firstborn wish? If he can make the difference?

Going to Atlanta. No black man should ever go there. That it was my father told me. A true African. Dis see his birthplace and the grave of the ones walking before me.

So? I don’t care? I’m not interessted in my own history? When have I ever said that?

Ever? Post or not post?

cRAZY stuff. It is not the best song. That is not the point.

Depending On What You Want/Wish For

February 23rd, 2018 Comments off

I recently acquired it (the magazine too).

Why? I already knew that/I thought the collection was complete. It turned out to be incomplete, catastrophic. Missing tracks from Funkstörung, “Viceversa”. I searched the discs. They were not to be found.

Among the missing: the Jay-jay Johnson remix? Have I never heard it before? Then it must be ignorance. If it was indeed played to me. Doing it now.

Is that my very own hand? “And I just can’t remember, last laugh in time… I want some fun, now.”

Honestly? I don’t really know what to say. That is the song.

Internet? It is still possibly the best idea ever in all of human history. It may not surpass printing, but it is very close to single-character-set printing.

Correlation? No, not really. They subjects are not related. I had something else in mind to begin with.

Is it a real artifact? It is a depiction of an actual physical object? Is it an actual picture of the cover of a magazine?

Am I confident that it is in fact a picture of the cover of a magazine? I am quite assured, I know for a fact tat it is indeed a picture of a cover of a magazine. As I’m confident that the copy I own is not unique and that I did take a photo of it in my kitchen.

But, then again you tell me if it is a fact or not? Added irony? The next generation scratched the answer from the cover. It can be fixed, so say Wired and I agree:

– Fit for purpose
– Safe and secure
– Future-proof
– A creative utopia
– Free of trolls
– Equal for all

Think about it. Hard. Is that going to happen? Well, I don’t know, but I do know that I for one do not want/wish for a broken Internet.

It is not to late. This tool? Is the most powerful ever in the history of mankind. It has/will change the course of humanity. Let’s guide this change. Yes/no?

– FIT FOR PURPOSE
– SAFE AND SECURE
– FUTURE-PROOF
– A CREATIVE UTOPIA
– FREE OF TROLLS
– EQUAL FOR ALL

Plz? Come on.

Hjärtstartare/Cardiac Arrest

January 24th, 2018 Comments off

The actual defibrillator seems to be missing.

There’s a hand-written comment on the “FELANMÄLD” note that reads: “Tom sedan september” it would equate to: “Emtpy since September” (I am assuming the month of September last year, that would be anno Domini 2017).

If the comment is indeed true and if it is currently January 2018 that would make give or take five months without a: “hjärtstartare” at T-Centralen (Central Station) in Stockholm, Sweden, on the upper floor.

The ATM a foot away (to the left in the picture, but out of shot) seemed to be in full working order though… I will have to revist the site in question.
