The Shimano CB-E110 (minus the Over Lock Nut) disassembled. It needs cleaning, unfortunately one crucial component is damaged: 12 321 9022 Ball Retainer A (1/4″). But, all in all it looks to be in good mechanical condition and salvageable.

Please see: The Mechanic for theory and reference.

Dissemble. Never tried or done that before. It was ridiculously hard removing that rear wheel in the dark. Will have to strip, lubricate and rebuild it. I have never done that before. It is going on the bike. No gears and foot break (disgrace) to boot. All because the free-wheeling little black bear was stolen.

Shimano CB-E110, the wheel/gear is Japanese? I am taking it apart. Trust me.

[a] Current number of digital tracks (not counting some of the analogue like vinyl).
[b] Number of days continuous playing (in theory).
[c] Space on the HW in GB (not including the BUP:s).

“I want in, on the nickle and the dime sold in the park…” Ref.? Think about it. I did for a very long time… NY… and a film.

That is 92,7 days of continous playing. That is my collection. You would love that? 93 days consecutive and contentious. And I would not have to play a single song twice… think about it. 93 days in stretch without repeating.

– Are you aware that you have played the same part of the same song 20 times or more in a row?
– Yes, but I would have thought that it was more than 20 times? Is it just twenty times in a row? I’m guessing that you don’t want me to play it another time, again, right?

.

I remember when I first heard it. UK biznizz and I remember not believing what I heard. UK musical supremacy. Interconnected. The breaks and the relentless bass. It is superior, decades. You can’t beat them. Ever. And then the Americans that can “master” (truly sorry) better than anyone else in the World…

Decades now. It is the best music ever produced and that is a fact!

This be culture. 1996.

Repetition/Loop

September 12th, 2020 Comments off

I deplore repetition, I absolutely hate it. Yet, I love loops* and especially looped based music. I’ve done so for a very long time and I will continue to so for ever.

– We’re pushing the envelope and it’s a honest mistake? It can happen to anybody, right?
– Not to me**.

* Not the eternal programming ones tough. I once witnessed the utter disgust displayed by a programmer (most likely one of the best in World) when he accidentally created an infinite loop. A complete shut down of the entire development environment/servers was required when the sub routine went haywire.

** The best I’ve ever encountered/seen. Upset and sourpuss an entire day.

Is It Hip-hop Or R’n’B?

September 12th, 2020 Comments off

– Hey, listen to this!
– Is it Hip-hop or R’n’B?
– Not really, I mean I can’t say that it is (either). It’s music?
– But you do know?! I have said this countless of times to you (and a variety of responses all leading up to):
– I don’t understand why you keep persisting with all this nonsense? Your Blipp-blopp and Dumb’n’bass*?
– Please, come on, it’s music and you are aware that I know a few of the ones making this music? For one they’re my/our friends?
– Is is Hip-hop or R’n’B?

* Dumb’n’bass? It still hurts after all these years. Dismissing a whole genre just like that? Dismissing the most progressive musical endeavour ever? That dis is well hard even by today’s standards. Direct, completely unforgiving and so adorable. Missed beyond words. The love of my life.
