A Gift

March 21st, 2020 Comments off

I’m not 100% sure, but I do (strongly) believe that it is the largest most comprehensive private collection of Moog synthesizers in Europe, and it may very well be the largest private modular synth collection in the entire World. A private collection of analogue modular synthesizers. Go figure.

A peculiar and kind man. Picture? He was nuff’ trilled at the time. It is a Moog key-chain… I saw it and I had two of them. It was not not a complicated decision. Not then and not now. It was easy. The happiness! Somewhat unusual artefact and given to the right person. It was a gift.

I’ve been told not to tell and I will not..

“- It’s a mini Mini Moog?!”
“- But, it is so tiny, it’s a wee’ one? 55 by 25 mm? Can I play it?”
“- I don’t think so. It is a key chain.”
“- I thought of you and your collection, you collect them right?”
“- So, it is a gift. It’s for you, I want you to have this. It’s yours.”

Melankoli Definierad?

Ingen kommentar eller?

En liten flicka som tittar ut över havet och betraktar oändligheten, på riktigt och sedan en liten pojke som inte ser någonting överhuvudtaget mer än det som en liten pojke ser.

Djupt, djupt koncentrerad med systembygget – pattern recognition; och det är maskinerna, skivorna, musiken, filmerna, konsten, kläderna och/eller sanden? Men titta på bilden… länge sedan.

En kall dag, en grå dag men det är S0S0 Perspective. I Norr… för nu är det sommar! Det är en brutal hardcore sommar för di stora som di små.

De fyller 17 år i år… 2020. So young and small/little/fragile.

“- Men vad håller du på med?”

DELL LATITUDE E6420? Uppdaterade BIOS från 01A till 25A (många reitireringar i BIOS blev det dår då)?

Den eviga frågan…

“- Men vad håller du på med, egentligen?”

Is it justified? What do you think?

“- Men vad fort du kan skriva!”
“- Jag har övat, länge.”

Men titta på bilden… vart är horisonten någonstans?

Le Petit

That would be my son… my pride and joy! Bless him. And if my father would have been alive. The pride.

The first three: I, II and III.

That’s the little one; fo’ su’. dem’ damn beats and stuff… You would say that? Mm, true, but I would say that regardless.

Left Behind II

March 15th, 2020 Comments off

What ever happened the instant before someone decided “- I’m not wearing these shoes no more this day/night!”. What happened after they were left behind? I always wonder…

The laces must have been replaced recently because they were spotless, all white and clearly brand new. And yet, someone decided to step out of them; halfway of reaching the summit of Katarinaberget. Midway up the stairs…

– Where are your shoes?

NEXUS 6

– What is that?
– That is our sun, Helios viewed from afar.
– What about all the other dots in the image?
– They are either other stars or galaxies.
– What is a galaxy?
– A galaxy is a very large collection of stars (100 – 400 billion)… our galaxy is called The Milky Way or Vintergatan (Winter Street/Road, which is a much prettier name in my mind) and it is roughly 200 000 light years across.
– Both our star and galaxy are “normal”, there are many like them. They’re average Joes’ in the universe if ypu will.

Serious Speed

February 28th, 2020 Comments off

Voyager 1 (the satellite) is travelling/leaving our solar system at about 60800 km per hour, that is 16 888 meters per second or almost 17 km per second and that is… incredibly, unbelievably fast and yet it is still just 0,0056 % a fraction of the speed of light, that clocks in at: 299 792 458 meters per second (in vacuum).

Light speed is a constant in physics, Voyager 1 still got some serious speed. It is the fastest man-made object in recorded history by a large margin as well as the first ever to get beyond the heliosphere and reach interstellar space.

Calls back once a day on DSN (Deep Space Network).
Years in service? Currently:

42 years, 5 months and 27 days

And counting, a continuously working, extremely complex machine in space (remember it was launched in 1977) and close to 42 and a half years in space?!!! How many phones have you owned thus far? That is some serious, serious, seriously brilliant engineering…

Origin? JPL (Jet Propulsion Laboratory). One-Way Light Time is 20:35:35 (hh:mm:ss), as a comparison the earth’s One-Way Light Time to the sun is 00:08:13 (hh:mm:ss)…

Voyager I is: 22 233 901 100 km from the sun and moving away fast. Mission Status

Simply unbelievably beautiful piece of machinery.

“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.
