  1. A 16 amp fuse with casing from the demolition site. That building is now long gone.
  2. The front of a tile from the new (hideous) building on the demolition site
  3. The back side of a tile from the new (hideous) building on the demolition site.
  4. Both my aunt and my uncle used to work there.
  5. KÖP ORIGINALET! VAGNER PREMIUM 940 is NOSTALGISK UTANPÅ – HIGHTECH INUTI*. Veenred oak casing at that price? There is even a telephone number, but what about fax or memo? They’re missing. Listen to the future…

That would be post number 1040 and the year is still 2020. Why? I don’t know! Go ask your Mama, go ask your Papa…

*Mm or is the other way around I wonder? I don’t know…! 96′ gonna be that year…

“Are you alien? Out of this World!”

One or the best hip-hop album ever made: OutKast ‎– ATLiens – LaFace Records ‎– 73008-26029-2

“96′ is going to be the year… Teardrops that turns to rain. My memories of yesterday…”

Excellent album! And they went Global.

What Did You Expect, Dressed Like That?

February 19th, 2020 Comments off

In Brixton, London a long, long time ago… trying to get a cab, dressed in an all white Swedish army winter combat suit?

It was a good call not to wear the face mask* as I did earlier the same evening. Because, then I would probably never have returned from Brixton. Altern 8 4-ever!

– Where?
– North-East to Manor House, please.
– OK. (I am going to help you, i.e. you are not from here and you are in need of urgent help. I can and will supply that help. for a fee).
– I could not hail a cab.
– What did you expect, dressed like that?

I reached my destination. That would be Brixton -> Manor House and you would have to change lines at Finsbury Park, if you where riding the tube, that is…

– Is it walking distance?
– No. It is not, this is London… you know?

* In hindsight, I did realise that I may have overstretched a bit, a tad, when coming to my attire.

And after calming down** I came to the conclusion that the question: “- If you were a cab driver at 05:00 AM in Brixton would you have taken that fare, honestly?” actually had a concrete and quite direct answer.

Please see picture above.

** The rage. Vaa faaan….?! or the unofficial SoSo Perspective ordlista/dictionary:

  • Vad i helvete (är det som pågår)?
  • Helvete!
  • Vad i helvete!
  • Vad i helvete tror du att du håller på med?
  • Men va fan?
  • Fö faan!
  • Va fan? Kom igen!
  • Come on… give me a f**king break?***
  • Come on!
  • Va!
  • Nää!
  • Vad (vill du mig nu)?
  • Vad (är det frågam om) ref. Men Flytta På Dig Dåro!?
  • Men**** vad (är det som pågår)?
  • Vad (är problemet)?
  • Vad är ditt problem?
  • Men varför?
  • Vadåååå?
  • Ta det lugnt.
  • Men lugna ned dig lite va.
  • Det är lugnt (inga problem) alt. Det är lungan.
  • Du skämtar (med mig)?
  • Du skämtar!
  • Dålig stil.
  • Det funkar inte alt. Det är inte funkis!
  • Sluta!
  • Jag blir så jävla trött!
  • Är du [ please fill in the blank space ]:
    • på riktigt?
    • helt dum i huvet? På riktigt?
    • seriös?
    • efterbliven? ex- “Är du helt jävla efterbliven? Vem som helst fattar att det inte funkar!”
    • en jävla bonde?
    • galen?
    • en fucking jävla moron?
  • Du är galen, på riktigt.
  • Det är inte sant!
  • Vilken skön stil!
  • Snubben är ju helt sjuk (i huvet).
  • Helt och hållet retarderad.
  • Fattar du hur jobbig du är just nu?
  • Du är ju farligt:
    • vacker!
    • knasig!
    • söt!
    • duktig!
  • Det där är seriöst farligt.
  • Seriöst?
  • Jag flippar ut!
  • Va fan menar ru?
  • Men va fan menar du nu?
  • Va fan menar du med det?
  • Men vadå?
  • Men vadå rå?
  • Men vad är det nu?
  • Det där är seriöst proper/bra.
  • Fan, vilka skills!
  • Snap!
  • Åh nej, det är snuten…
  • Åh nej.
  • Lastgammal.
  • Nu blir jag orolig, nu blir jag orolig.
  • Nu har du gått för långt (med din stil).
  • Du är… hopplös!
  • Jag tycker att du är jättefin!

“- Det är mycket bra ***** men du måste tona ned dina stockholms E:n…” said Ogenstedt my head mistress in French.

*** My mother absolutely deplores and hates any use of foul language and/or swearing. “- Let me tell you about my mother.” However, it is archaic SoSo speak and thus a part of the SoSo Perspective.

**** You can basically always start any sentence with “Men” or “Meeeen” = “What”. Men, va fan är problemet nu? or Men, fan det här är ju rätt soft eller hur?! And you can basically always end any sentence with “Eller” = “Or”. As in: Men ska vi rulla nu eller?. Are we leaving now or? Är du frisk eller?

– And you are supposed to be a scholar? An educated man of some sort?
– Yes, that is correct. Jag talar korrekt och flytande svenska också…

Intonation is key.

Jag Gick Hem För Länge Sen…

January 28th, 2020 Comments off

…men har du hört den här min vän? Nej! Det har jag inte (gjort), men det låter… fett nice!

– Jag går hem nu!!!
– Hejdå (säger generalen), vi ses hemma om en stund…

Drum and bass! What can I say?

Ingen stannar förutom; pojkarne.
Ingen stannar men basen stannar aldrig… och det är culture!

31? That would be Doc’s own label. It is not Infrared, Hardleaders, Saigon, Renegade Harware, Droppin’ Science, Secret Operations, Stamina, Electronic Dessert, Cutting Pleasue, Good Looking, Certifivate 18 or Metalheadz. It is 31 and it is in fact Doc’s very own…

Even Tapes

January 4th, 2020 Comments off

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.

It’s A New Day!
