Even Tapes

And now it is over. I was forced to sell my double-deck?

Then I found this sweet Sony CFD-S50 CD/Tape-deck in the trash? Perfect for the beach and I got a cassette by: Lootpack, that I’ve wanted to play for a long time. And how I can.

The challenge is on. One-to-one. Playing? I’ll hold my ground. That’s a promise.


This is low-level programming, energy efficiency, geometry and Darwin.

People (humans) always seem take the shortest route. The gain in this particular location? It must be less than 2 metric meters (I probably could, if I remembered it correctly – use Pythagoras to calculate the distance more precisely)?

– What on Earth are you talking about?

Please pay attention to the non-existing grass, the cone in the back of the picture and where the pavement is actually located, never mind the many objects (cigarette stubs) in the front left corner of the picture.

It is humanity. Funny. And it is in fact the shorter route according to Pythagoras…

Mitt Jordfel Är Roligare Or Zero Is Ground

… än alla jag tidigare har känt. Det är bedrövligt.

In short? Electrical issues, I have a grounding problem, it is intermittent but as long as it does not interfere with my listening I really don’t care. it is just there… in the background.

“Fel” means “error” and “jordfel” means ground error, electrically. So what? Well “jord” also translates to “Earth”. This is not a good thing in any sense – electrically it affects all my machines and in particular my amplifier. In the other sense? “Earth-error” affects everything…

So? The rest… the rest of my failures? You mean in my life that is not related to electrical ground failures?

Zero is ground.

My Name Is

Unless you are in some kind of specialized military branch or sea farer from the past (which I am not) you probably need a Translator of some sort to decode it? I know I do…

37 °C + Hands

The title is a reference to temperature*.

The previous post was about temperatures and the periodic table that was constructed by several people but is largely attributed to the Russian chemist: Дмитрий Иванович Менделеев, Dmitri Ivanovich Mendeleev (1834 – 1907).

How can this be remotely related?

Well, you will need to read the previous post: 1052 °C; think about melting points, possibly Barcelona but you must not look into the looking glass.

The venue is the same: Color + Sachet; a different day and This Is A Ride that is at times parked right outside was not present.

The final reference is one of my favourite d’n’b albums of all time 37 °C And Falling and the label to booth.

But hey, that’s just a bonus!

* Average body temperature.

1052 °C

1052 Centigrade? Using mirrors, computers and solar energy only? That’s impressive and that’s enough to melt most things we use and know of in the table (periodic):

Aluminium (Al)13 melts at 660,33 °C and Copper (Cu)29 at 1085,00 °C.

Lead (Pb)82 melts at: 327.5°C and in between them you’ve got; Tin (Sn)50, Magnesium (Mg)12 and Zink (Zn)30.

The only thing that is really missing is: Iron (Fe)26, unfortunately, it melts at 1538 °C and we use iron to make Steel*. The temperature reached is not that far away…

Aluminium goes a far, far way it just not as strong. yet it is in fact one of the most common solid elements on earth (the seas are made up of Hydrogen** (H)1 and Oxygen (O)8, that would be H2O, Combined they make up for quite a bit, if not most of Tellus more than 75%.

* Steel is an alloy, it is a combination of different elements from the periodic table. Steel is not an element.

** It is regarded as the simplest and most common known element in our universe.
