If You Can’t Ride? Just Don’t Or Learn How To.

May 24th, 2017 Comments off

So any and every skill demands specific training, and I do mean any and every skill.

Depending on what level that you are aspiring to reach. For example: I do not know anything about “Bingolotto” and I have never played the particular game.

Yet, I’m quite confident that there are many persons that are younger or older than I am, that do not have children or have children or siblings or have either both their parents alive or any of them still in existence that are actually playing this specifc game.

Data. set. collection. sort. output.

However, just because you may or may not be an adult does not automatically mean that you can ride a bike?

“Vad? Måste jag lära mig något också? Men kan jag inte bara köpa det? Jag VILL ha en fixed-geared cykel en sådan som jag har sett på film en sådan de har i NYC? Vad menar du? Det kan ta flera år att lära sig (gatorna är lite rakare och NY är lite plattare)? Vad då? Jag betalar ju?”

Not wearing a helmet does not mean that you are immortal and are entitled to break every traffic rule ever written. And, no you are not entitled to run over walking people (or any other people for that matter).

No, you are simply not allowed to do that! Scary and crazy shit I witnessed in the city.

What is going on in Stockholm right now? It is simply ridiculous! I almost got run over five times (5) in less than an hour visiting the inner city. Fixed-geared morons that just literally can not stop (please get another type of bike ot learn how to bike, you may want to consider one with the two extra wheels on the side) and then some…

It is so typical Stockholm. Fixed-geared? You better know what the hell you are doing or… I personally really don’t understand the point of that on the street. Oh, yes, I know that the messengers in NYC use them, BUT Stockholm is not NYC though and I do not see any messengers around. All I see are…

No breaks? Really? If you are looking for speed? Why not go to the velodrome (yes, there is an actual word for it and guess it is from France) with banking and short handle bars, then fixed-gear makes sense. Otherwise? On Folkungagatan? Seriously? Running the red light? No, I do not think so.

It is “men jag vill, jag ska bara göra ” classic moronic behaviour. You almost ran me over and that makes you a f**ing moron. No more, no less.

Have you ever never in your life considered that ”skill” could be a factor? That you may actually need some knowledge for example how to actually ride a bike? You know in real life? Riding a bike without killing other people or for that matter killing yourself?

Why are you riding a fixed-geared bike if you can not handle it? Honestly? I did let the traffic through, looking left and right and you still almost killed me? Always wanting to do “it”, never understanding “it”, destroying “it” and repeating “it”?

Why do you (yes anyone sitting on a fixed-geared bike without control) keep comparing Stockholm with London, New York, Tokyo or Paris? It is just ridiculous… “The Capital of Scandinavia”, Stockholm really?

I am an avid fan of bikes, that’s really not the question. Anything can become a weapon in the hands of a not so talented individual. Running a red-light and then get aggravated because you almost hit an pedestrian? Please, get a fu**ing grip and of your riding. You need a lot more control not only of your riding, but I suspect of yourself.

Honestly? You lot are embarrassing the whole country! If that is not a concern at least respect yourself.

CPH, what else?

Ride with pride.

Flowers?

I guess that I could have bought them for my own enjoyment.

Actually I did, they are quite pretty and if you like flowers?

I guess, I like them too!

Bass And The Ultimate Sound Boy Killer?

May 16th, 2017 Comments off

I have seen speakers literally burn, once.

I’ve seen amplifiers failing, power cuts, fuses burn, turntables, numerous headphones and needles failing.

But, only once in my life have I ever seen speakers pouring smoke and dying.

Surely the set up was wrong to begin with. (It is basically impossible to set up any system like that, but it can be done.)

However, I have never ever seen anything like that before or after… It is not supposed to happen theoretically.

I did see it happen. Smoke and silence. A plume of smoke from the speakers and they all went dead silent.

It was (surprisingly) a very long time ago.

Actually there is another episode of bass exercise. It did not result in catastrophic failure, but it was really close. I could see and feel the floor boards move… again long time ago and another DJ.

Current affairs? DJ Youngsta pushing UK? And Plastician is… disturbing, all are things from London on rinse.fm. It is unfair, it has always been unfair. The ultra cool stuff the ultra ruff stuff! The London sounds. The direction is always forward, Swamp 81? Biznizz. It is a fast forward moving World.

Music beyond, as always.

Unit Two Is Online!

May 13th, 2017 Comments off

Two laptops…

I switched the keyboards (US layout is imposible for me that is) and I switched the HD and they’re up and running after 30 mins?

Sure they are more or less identical… W510 and T510, still I mean, nevertheless I am really surpriced.

I did not think (jinx) that just swapping keybords and discs would ever work… not really (I have rebooted both several times and they are working).

I am as astounded as I’m happy.

Hardware? You need to be nice to the machines too…

Unit One Is Broken?

May 12th, 2017 Comments off

You said what now? MERAK, that would be unit one in the command center is broken?

Unit one has suffered a hardware failure and is no longer fit for active duty. This is a sad day indeed.

And it will require a lot of work (as always). Among other things swapping keyboards, discs and… making it run.

However I am sure that ALKAID is up to the task and will take responsability.

Merde! Many (too many) hours are going to have to be spent to fix it.

It Is Not A Catch Phrase

Anno domini is 2017 right? The trailing beats? That is typically US. Nevermind. My God. Europe vs. US. Hey, let’s all get along.

Liberté – Égalité – Fraternité

May 9th, 2017 Comments off

So… we do no longer honour the difference between family, lovers and friends?

OK. Fine, I for one find that regrettable, but basically I just need to know.

I was under the impression or rather I was hoping that we were all about to become grown-ups? That’s it obviously not the case. I’m really sorry I missed that bit.

It is somewhat dependant on how the definition was formulated, that is. I do think that I have been pretty clear regarding that?

Well, well… what do I know? God’s speed!

The odd question still remains: Is my family, my loved one and my friends really the same thing and are the at all comparable in any sense? I would have to say no. That conclusion became easier, not so long ago.

The alternative would be? There is no difference what so ever? Is that the correct interpretation (and please do correct me if I am mistaken)? If that is indeed what is claimed? I think… No, that is not my position at all.

I could go so far as saying that it is an ridiculous claim and I for one will not change my position and for no one (living) person. I could never and I will never subscribe to the above.

How could it ever be the same thing? The family, lovers and friends? Equally important but dramatically different.

To begin with, a completely different time frame and the fact that they’re immensely complex social structures in themselves and belonging to completely different contexts.

Concrete examples? Grown-ups with or with-out siblings? History, current culture, upbringing (parental relations) and genus* (and that is not exclusive to the Western World or this millennium, mind you). Friends lost and found (finding the lost or finding them at all?). The lovers? I have no further comment on that particular subject.

Or do we all wake up on some random day and are radically transformed (sometimes I wish it could be like that, but I do not believe in “transformation” and I cannot see how I could ever do that)?

It is a rhetorical question: the simple answer is; no we do not. Is it gradual? “I would like to do this, but I have to this and I then I become this?” Or is it some mystical power from the deep realms of the “old” Universe that simply compels people to act in a specific way?

Mm, no, I honestly don’t think so. And I am pretty sure what I do believe and therefore my preferred explanation is altogether different.

Yes, that’s right! That is Jeanne d’Arc in a drawing from 1429…

* I thought it was complicated enough when it was binary… the hbtq + i (inter sexual?)? And then hbtq+i+geo or hbtq+i+geosoc or hbtq+i+geo+geosoc+wealth or hbtq+i+geo+geosoc+wealth-eyesight or hbtqigeosocwealth+weight… it is just that kind of thinking that ended extremely, and I do mean extremely badly the last time around.

Hey! I have an idea… Why can we not try, I mean just let us try and use this new and revolutionary concept: “All humans are equal”? And that everyone born has the same rights and responsibilities, simply by being human beings?

Yes, I’m aware that is a ridiculously radical idea and that “overdoing it” probably will not suffice and frankly it is just completely outrageous! I know… let’s go crazy, what about: “h”? It’s completely bonkers right? Why not try: “h”, you know like in human?

What?

Well, that would be the right thing to do of course! It is simple enough, all you need to do right now is to do the right thing.

Sure it is a simple task, I am sure you will be ready and able to do what is right, right?

It is not complicated or is it slightly more complicated? What say you. Honestly? Come on! wr (at) resurface . se

The Power Of UK Bass

May 6th, 2017 Comments off

I have been telling you lot… that the source is the one and the same.

I have been telling you that it is probably an UK/EU business? Ant-zen business?

So, then an odd 25 years later, it is still the same thing aka UK?

Pushing musical stuff that is beyond, ruff and unforgiving. Culture.

Youngsta B2B Truth? That compression? That it is the end of the road for me…

I had to give up at some time? Subsidise to the bass stuff?

You don’t have to like or understand it, but you I do think you need to accept it. I for one do love it and I have spent a life time doing so..

But, you never really understood that… “You know what they call us?”

Well, at least for some of us, Europe is a very serious thing.

And I am surely too young to have been taken part in any of the wars. But, I am not young enough to understand that it can happen again at any time. And if you paid any attention at all in school?

There has been many wars in Europe the past 2000 years? There is even one called the “100 year war” and that was fought between “Christians” in Europe, what we would call France these days…

The first and second World Wars? 20 years seperated them? Perspective? If you were born in 1911, you would have been a small child and an then a young adult and still living through two World Wars? Like my grandmother.

History.

Out Of Control, This Thing Is…

May 2nd, 2017 Comments off

Tjatandet*?

I personally never viewed it or will ever view it like that…

To me? It is a story that has to be told and retold. Why? Because that is the story to be told.

It is the same story that has been told for millennia? The story told by the “Griot”?

I am not one of them, but I am not the one? I know my history and it is not the one of stone and potato picking variability.

The bass being pushed from the UK now? It is similar to that story, just harder, better and more relentless than ever.

“Le tam-tam” or as it was retold by my father? He would have said: “***** **** ** ***** ****** ** ***-***.” and that is a story that is thousands of years old.

And that story progresses throughout, like a wave (physics say that a wave actually never “moves” and that would seem to be true if you have faith in modern (1900’s) physics.) If you think about it? If you do away with modern physics (my point being that “modern” started in the 1900’s…). Why the h**l is it so hard to appreciate the advances made in one hundred (100) years?

There are “people” not “believing” in vaccination? What the h**l is all that about? I mean, I thought that it was clear to everybody how many human beings that have died in viral deceases? The Black Plague? I will never understand that.

Please, I urge everybody. READ SOME HISTORY! Without proper vaccination and without efficient antibiotic? Do you understand how extremely dangerous that is?

Musically? I for one have never heard anything like it. It is crushing everything else. And I for one love it! As relentless as it is brilliant. It is pure bass music. I am so grateful. “You know what they call us?”.

Actually I don’t know (but I can guess). Bass? It is the definition of my life and till day it still is. When, I am truly happy.

It just never stops… it is a two hour show? It is 2017 and attack all the way? There is no paus? No breather? It is excellent, but the tempo is very aggressive? Then again tempo is not all. I still love the presentation. The mighty, mighty, rinse.fm from London city.

Well, I tried, but I can not object to anything… I just can not do it. Electronic Bass music? Has it ever sounded this good? No. I honestly don’t think so.

Technology on both sides? I am talking about the US. It is obvious (to me) that the one could not exist without the other. The bass, “drag” and the definition being pushed? Really? Impossible! Is the soul there? I know it is. “Black Star Liner” I say to you.

* Oh, yes, that is Swedish… Well, it literally means “nagging” and in French it would be “rabâcher”.

You know, too speak of something endlessly and never stop?
