Is That?

…a portrait of you?
– No. That is a portrait of Malcolm X.
– I’m humbled and I choose to take it as a compliment. However, I could as simply choose otherwise… but since it is brother Malcolm…
– Maybe, I should have known that?
– Yes, maybe you should’ve actually known who the man in the picture is.

D+R

I don’t know what to say.

I’ve never actually met the man and discussed the music. Breaks eternal.

Just, when I think that I’m done… listening for decades (I know it is never going to happen).

When, I think that you will not listen or hear something like this again after +25 years… it still happens, again and over again. D+R again!

That is more/longer than 25 years. Same thing. 1994 or 95? Just stop. Please just let go.

D+R.

Abbott and Costello must be from: Arrival (2016) and then there’s a Solaris sample. Considering the remake it was once said:

– Why would you ever make a remake of the adaptation of Stanislaw’s ´Solaris´?
– Why would anyone ever attempt such a thing?
– I kind of like the remake; I’ve read the book and it’s a decent picture/adaptation?
– No! It is not!
– Why on earth would you even contemplate doing something like that?

– What are she doing?

As with the many other books it was given in hand. I was just a wee boy, and an innocent teenager. Now? I’m not sure that they were all actually read to begin with… however they’re a part of my education. Stanislaw Lem’s Solaris… is a read.

And so are: Animal Farm, A Brave New World, Kallocain, Lord of the Flies, 1984, Röde Orm, Röda Rummet, On The Shortness Of Life, Det Susar i säven, Julius Caesar, I, Robot, The Art of Living, Traité sur la tolérance and Neuromancer… Zero and the Space Rastas!

We continue to listen and read… the cover and artwork? Is it the man himself? I don’t know? It is excellence. Anime/Manga/Tokyo for you and me. You can but ask… and I’ve done precisely that.

If That Don’t Make You Happy? I Don’t Know…

Revisiting: Photek

Solaris. At that time, 2000? It was not for me to understand…

Now? 20 odd years later? I remembers that I was deeply disappointed in the album at the time and that I have not listened to it in two decades.

2021? Listening? I know why I felt that way then and now I know why I was in the wrong.

It is spelled experience. Photek? Miles Ahead of everyone. He is and will forever be brutally futuristic.

Water… and a lot of it. It made a loud sound. The water. I heard it from above, before the overpass. An unfamiliar sound to me. And then I saw what was the cause of the unfamiliar sound.

It was water rushing through the slues… from Mälaren to Östersjön. A loud roaring sound of many masses of water flowing through the slues at a very high rate (many cubic meters per second).

There’s is a meter or more in height difference between the two. you can’t stop a mass of water or defy gravity, ever… no matter how much you want to.

You can try to stop the ocean, lake or the sea. If they decide to rise they will surely rise…

The/that sound!?

Translation of the text in chat window (lower right): I think I’m attending the wrong meeting. It started precisely at 10:00… so many questions…

Where Are We?

The United Arab Emirates’ Hope mission has returned its first picture of Mars.

The spacecraft Hope (Arabic: الأمل‎, Al-Amal).

On the day the UAE Hope probe took its first image, the Chinese Tianwen-1 orbiter arrived at Mars.

A black-and-white picture of Mars taken by Tianwen-1, the first snapshot from the Chinese craft.

China’s Tianwen-1 Mars probe is seen by a tiny camera ejected from the spacecraft in a photo captured 15 million miles (24 million kilometers) from Earth.

An image of the small ejected camera tumbling away from Tianwen-1.

Tianwen-1 (TW-1; simplified Chinese: 天问; traditional Chinese: 天問; lit. ‘heavenly questions’) is an interplanetary mission by the China National Space Administration (CNSA) to send a robotic spacecraft to Mars, consisting of an orbiter, deployable camera, lander and rover.

It’s It Is Not Obvious If You Don’t Happen To Know

The basic set-up of a record player was featured just now on discogs.com and it suddenly vanished and was much harder to find…

Here it is:

The Beginner’s Guide to a Basic Turntable Set-Up. I really like this “educational” approach (to be honest I haven’t read the whole thing yet…). But the basics are:

– Now, I got a record player! What do I do next?!!

My personal set-up looks like this and has for quite some years’ now.

I can state the exact details upon personal request at the contact address.
