Disturbingly Good

November 11th, 2019 Comments off

This is work in progress… I’m dazed and confused by Shitkid.

It just seems wrong. Why in the name of the Lord would you ever make a cover of My Favorite Thing? The short and simple answer? You would not ever do that.

On top of it all I’ve been and I still am a haunted man, haunted by the music of the 68:s (it’s not a typo, not 60’s music, but the music of the 68:s); “Nous sommes les soixante-huits?!” – that would be my parents self-proclaimed credo!

A statement, something which there will never be any; contesting/argument or reasoning applied to, ever. An absolute truth if you will.

For the record and the very last time; if you listen to the Stones or Hendrix you do not under any circumstance listen to the Beatles. Ever. Why? Because that is the definition of a contradiction… and it goes on and on.

Pink Floyd will automatically cancel other time specific groups/songs etc. In as many words: I’m going to be haunted for an eternity by one specific year and month. Mai soixante-huit (May 68) and I wasn’t even born at that time.

I need to get the references right. “- Please be gentle with me. I’m not as tuff as I seem.”. Give me a minute will you.

Cut to the chase anytime soon? Right…, the “This is it” EP is excellent! Minimal and with a raw, ruthless and a honesty that is unusual these days. It’s simply not possible to resist the vocals and the un-shameful sampling of earlier works.

If you happen to know anything or have listened to any contemporary music made the last decades or so. I mean Minneapolis, AFX or is it æ in the same song? That’s a wild thing right there. And I love it!

…a very brightly shining star is born. Let’s name her: Shitkid (the name in itself deserves a text. But, I’m just going to let it be, that’ll be one for the road). Excellent.

Fail By Design?

I’m just saying… charging cables packed and sold five at the time? Is there possibly something flawed with the original design/concept?

Co-incentally this is the 900 post (not counting the ones censored in the past and in the possible future).

I was once asked at the 300 mark or so:

– Why, do you write these texts and who’s ever going to read what you’re writing?

It was as funny then as it is funny now. I don’t know that anyone ever will/would. That’s not reason why. Obviously, I hope that someone of the 7700 000 000 000 people alive today is reading (I happen to know that I have some readers albeit not that many) some of the texts. Why would you ask something like that? If I may ask in turn?

I suppose it’s a question of perspective, and that it must have to do with your relation to the rest of the World. Never ever be in the wrong. And there’s a guaranteed method of achieving that “objective” and that is to do/produce/interact as little as possible. Then you will be more or less certain of always being in the right.

I obviously don’t share that perspective.

This Is What I Do

GET me/workout/ :id

The latest logged workout should be displayed. The status of the workout, its exercises and their respective sets must be retrievable from the database. Consider the following scenario: A workout consisting of five exercises with four sets each. Two exercises were logged as completed including all their sets. One exercise was skipped altogether including all its sets, one exercise was neither logged nor skipped and the last exercise was partly completed i.e. three sets where completed, one was skipped and the exercise logged.

iOS + JSON + databases

Among all the other stuff.

The pure Saturday pressure… the very best music in the World and it is still there after all these years?

Listen to: rinse.fm at all times!

I have a hard time believing it, 24 hrs a day? Playing like that? Beyond two decades? I’m just humbled, going through the headphones (destroyed) and filled with the utmost gratitude, musically.

I will continue to listen, for an eternity, I’m just… confused (claiming is one thing, actually doing it (playing) is another thing all together). I did do that a long time ago. The selection part was easy, the mixing part was really hard.

The music, the mixing and the pressure is as good as it gets. UK? It is just impossible and it has always been like that… literally, decades later. The quality and selection? I just want to go home. My musical home is not where I currently reside or have ever resided.

The out-of-focus photo? Taken close by, I do believe that it is a small sized outboard motor and that it has been submerged (in the sea) for quite some time. I’m guessing longer than two decades.

The Address Is [Almost] Impossible

September 28th, 2019 Comments off

Drottninggatan 73C? It is an impossible address.

However, Bar OAS is nothing but a gem, I would never have thought that I would ever again wonder the streets of Drottninggatan* ever again.

The bar has it all, well almost… – they’re lacking a bit in sound, but that has to do with neighbors and the destruction of the inner city, real estate, lawyers, homeowners and the mandatory quietness after 18:00…

“I live in the very heart of the city, and it might be your birthplace and your history, but this is where you cannot afford to live.” Argument… It has nothing to do with the bar itself.

It is super friendly, professional, very reasonably priced and has a lot of character, fused with an undeniable understated genuine charm.

Contact
info@baroasdrottninggatan.com

Address
Drottninggatan 73 c
111 36
Stockholm

Opening Hours
Mon-Fri: 16:00–22:00
Sat: 14:00-22:00
Sun: Closed

Go here/there: Bar Oas.

It is the main shopping street in Stockholm, people from all round the Globe (witnessed), including same-sex couples, man-boys, hillbillies, holidaying Europeans, South- and North Americans, Asians, the Africans and SD-(Sverigedemokristiska väljare)-voters wandering about obliviously. A reportedly 140 000 persons pass this particular address a day. And this is not the most visited stretch by far. I don’t even want to know the other head count.
