When You Are To Tired To Sleep

April 20th, 2019 Comments off

Apparently it can happen? Probably when you are elderly, like I undeniable is.

Listening to… music, falling asleep and being awaken by music and then contemplating decades of listening.

Why? Honestly, I really don’t know.

L’Iliade

March 21st, 2019 Comments off

I have read it and it was a gift from my grandmother on my (not 100% sure) 15th birthday (when I indeed had ambitions).

I did not give it much thought at the time (I was fifteen or so, I did appreciate the gift) but now when I’m not fifteen any more and my grandmother has passed, I do think about the gift.

It makes me wonder… obviously it is classical literature, but it also something altogether different. I mean for starters it is not an easy read. And the fact that there are so very few that have actually read the piece in question. Like “On The Road” by Jack Kerouac.

– Why? Well, because you don’t have to read them.

And I’m not alone, yet my grandmother gave the books to me.

– You are the oldest?

– Yes, but I don’t think that is the reason why I was awarded the literal gifts.

I have read every single of the gifts and I guess that you simply don’t know anything about anything and that there is nothing called “chance”.

The Covent

This is what you don’t know. The eternal bass.

– What do you mean?

– The thing that you never understand. Like Serena never will or can understand June. Ever.

– The bass? It is eternal and will be so for an eternity and the ones playing it (correctly) will be and for an eternity my heroes.

– DJ Storm? She… that is… beyond words and if you can’t phantom the greatness?

– Then I pity you Fool!

Who’s Afraid Of…?

January 29th, 2019 Comments off

As I recall it – Eraserhead was/is really frightening, and especially so the soundtrack that goes wit it.

Henry Spencer tries to survive his industrial environment, his angry girlfriend, and the unbearable screams of his newly born mutant child.

Let’s not forget:

– The Elephant Man (1980)
– Dune (1984)
– Blue Velvet (1986)
– Wild at Heart (1990)
– Lost Highway (1997)
– Mulholland Dr. (1999)
– Inland Empire (2006)

Incidentally, I don’t like Wild at heart at all (in all honesty I hate it as much as I love Mulholland Dr.).

Maybe not as well-known a fact, I’m completely and utterly intimidated by and/or afraid of Laura Dern.

De-construction I

January 28th, 2019 Comments off

If you are an existentialist and you truly believe that you as an individual is responsible for your own actions, that the consequences of your actions have a profound impact on everything, that they influence the World and more significantly the people (humans) surrounding you, as I truly do.

Then, logically, sooner or later you have to suffer the consequences of your own actions.

However, I’ve been blessed, because I had a father that championed that precise idea beyond the extreme.

My father told me:

“All that I want [in life] is for You to exceed me!”

I am indeed my father’s (Darth Vader = Dark Father) son and I will/do/demand/want the very exact same thing.

Bvd Of Broken Dreams

January 19th, 2019 Comments off

Due to a large number of reasons (including tremendous loss, unbelievable actually) I happen to know this for a fact.

But don’t despair! There will always be culture and as long as there is culture and art, there will be… life!

Picturing the back rubber cover of my used to be trustworthy: 1TB – Time Capsule – A1254 – Generation 1.

It was fastened to the back with an industrial strength type of glue that made it impossible to remove without destroying it, the cover that is. Did I try to heat the surface in order to facilitate the removal? Yes, I did try that.

The casing is in its turn secured with 8 till 10 screws. It was dissembled/reassembled and is in perfect working order (without the rubber cover though…). It would appear at least to me that it contained standard components, besides the fact that the actual disk was unusually configured.

Reason? Until just recently it was residing on my private network as a as it where a “shared disk”. Then completely out of the blue – it was no longer a shared disk, it was no longer a part of the family. In fact due to SMBv1 it was not longer accesible at all. It was a sad day for my private network. A very sad day indeed.

On the upside. I did finally setup my two + one wifi + 8-port switch network configuration properly.

Oh, yes I have reason to beleive that it is actually working now, no ad-hoc or mysterious bridging. Simply two ol’ DHCP enabled routers sharing and caring on the network (in theory).

Conflicting Emotions

January 12th, 2019 Comments off

East or West? Crips or Blood?

The love of my life did not like that I dressed in blue. It is true that it is a very long time ago, it was very serious nevertheless, I still like the color blue, and I like red as much as that I like blue…

East or West? Crips or Bloods? However, the Wu, RZA, ODB and DJ Premier would be the decider? In reality it is or never never was a contest. It was settled a long time ago.

“Bobby Digital” is from 1998 and “Dre 2001” is from 1999. Wu-tang for ever? Unfortunately I am unable to confirm it and that is for an eternity.
