Left Behind III

May 1st, 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…

A solitary in confinement or is it solitary confinement?

– I am going to throw your one shoe inside the grates!
– Noooo!

Another pair but that actually seem have been “kicked-off”*. Were they too small, tired of the whole plaid lining thing or completely fed up with dressing up all together? Your guess is as good as mine.

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?

Left Behind

November 9th, 2019 Comments off

The solitary was most likely dropped a dash hurrying in some direction – but, what about the pairs?

It always makes me wonder. What happened the instant before someone decided “- I’m not wearing these shoes no more this day/night!”. Did a spare pair exist somewhere or did nature have its causal way?

They do not seem to have been “kicked-off”; on the contrary, they’re were (must have been) orderly removed and quite purposefully placed. What about the remaining journey?

Was it bear-feet or in socks: on bike, by car, being carried or dragged, on stretcher, the coroner, on electric scooter or maybe simply Au natural?

What happened after they were left behind? I always wonder…

Don’t Leave Me Behind…

March 21st, 2019 Comments off


Even the Missus approved… at the time*.

And for the record this is indeed the 808th post**.

* I think that I now can understand how some things simply can not be explained properly.

How experiences actually can’t be explained properly from one generation to another and it would seem to have to do with emotions rather than experience and age and the lack of experience.

That in turn could very well be why I will never fully comprehend 68′ (Soixante Huit) or the 13th of September 1966 at Le Café de L’Odéon in Paris or the black and white photo taken on Ponte Neuf for that matter.

** Some posts have been redacted of different and obvious reasons, so you will not find 808 of them, but I can assure you that the number is indeed the correct one.

Convurazio, Behind the Console… Mama Mia Chef! [October Man Recordings – OCTOBER MAN 19, 2007]

August 10th, 2007 Comments off

omr019_convurazio_behindThe debut release of Convurazio on October Man Recordings offers music set in lo-fi with well-known and cherished beats, and when paired with nursery rhyme like melodies like in the opening track Tricky it is a treat. In the second track Skate the setting in the same: lo-fi, but the beats are light and treading accompanied by the sounds of a sitar. The behind the Console… Mama Mia Chef EP is precisely that a part nostalgic, playful and lo-fi sounding EP, in many aspects the title itself reflects the musical content. It’s an OMR 3-inch release, individually numbered and with a hand-cut piece of actual(!) photographic paper for cover art.

Quench, Punctuated [n5MD – MD112, 2003]

February 9th, 2003 Comments off

quench_punctuated_md112A definite soundtrack opening on this the latest Quench release “Punctuated” – a full-length album released on the somewhat strange and unusual MD format. The format is the trademark of US label n5MD and what an excellent release it is! “Punctuated” starts of with a beatless the soundtrack-like “nightshelf” the beautiful and emotional soundscapes lead on to “Zane” a classic vein Quench track with beats, melancholic strings and basslines of cheer bliss fused with layers of sonic elements. “Nemm” and “Scid” follow along the same atmospheric, beat-filled and structured path. Fifth track “Vexx” is a dub monster with a brilliant and haunting build-up, rock solid beats and a bassline to die for. It contains all the classic elements of a dub track and yet it is unmistakably a Quench track and nothing else. It’s musical greatness witnessed first-hand. In “Diaz” and “Bud” the dub realm is left behind and they both move into a territory of much higher beat density and does so beautifully as always accompanied by Quench’s version of melodic perfection. The eight track is the superb “Coil” with an amazingly colorful sonic picture, imagine if you will a solid hand-clap/ride, merciless strings and layering, building up alongside a subbass moving forward ever so steadily. “Latch” and “Iad” follow with more first-class electronic wizardry and the second of the two tracks being a bit harsher in appearance and construction. The eleventh and last track “Clan” has been previously released on the recently reviewed and excellent On 002 compilation. Of course this release is limited and the format’s quirky, but never mind that, this is as good as it gets. It is electronic music of the highest possible quality and finest grade. It doesn’t come more recommended in short, it’s an absolutely essential release.

that the late and departed Mr. M. Fisher has left something behind. Texts.

A last text… supposedly named “Acid Communism”.

If that is indeed true, I honestly don’t know what to do.

Until I read it. That is.

[Picture was pending 2017-10-31 and added 2017-11-02. NB: This text is based on an actual job application.].

Since everyone seem obsessed with quotes and allegations these days?

Given that this is the first page of Riksteaterns press page.

I may on own accord have made an error of judgement here? Maybe it has nothing to do with my age at all? Maybe this is something altogether different? A different subject? The original post just below (dates are above):

I’m feeling mistreated. I suspect that it may have to do with my age? I’m worried that I may in fact be discriminated against in this very moment! And I’m Swedish!

I want to mention that “#” actually means something very different. Nice people. And why would the not nice ones tell you? Would you? What is behind your social networks? Is it… code? Who writes the code? Do you know how too? Probably not. Have you ever encountered a “natural” coder? I have. Seldom. In work? It is pure beauty to watch. Line-by-line. Art.

What? I am telling you that you do not have any idea of what your are talkining about.

“Hej *****,

tack för ditt meddelande.

Vi på Riksteatern arbetar med kompetensbaserad rekrytering. Vi baserar alltså vårt urval av kandidater på hur väl de matchar mot den kravprofil som vi ställt upp för tjänsten.

Dessa krav framgår av annonsen:
Du har mycket goda kunskaper inom IT, och har flera års erfarenhet av arbete med webb- och systemutvecklingsprojekt. Du har haft rollen som webbansvarig, systemägare, produktägare eller systemförvaltare.

Då vi inte kan utläsa att du har de kunskaper och erfarenheter som vi efterfrågar, har du inte blivit kallad på intervju.

Med vänliga hälsningar,

The last straw… I would have, if given the opportunity. I’ve been to the venues many times and I do truly believe in the arts. Misspellings and poor grammar. The “angst” of going to school and perform always and beyond. Always excel? There is at least a “?” missing in this rather short text. I love Riksteatern or the idea in any case. Fine. That’s OK and basically my personal problem. The message has been received. That picture though?

Du har mycket goda kunskaper inom IT, och har flera års erfarenhet av arbete med webb- och systemutvecklingsprojekt. Du har haft rollen som webbansvarig, systemägare, produktägare eller systemförvaltare? Det räcker nu? Kan inte ens stava ordentligt? OK. “Kulturarbete?” “Utbildning?”. OK.

Contact me at: anytime you want. It would be as a consultant though. Different tarrif.

The current situation? It is just ridiculous.

Picture added. First page. Press page. Riksteatern press.

Det fick jag lära mig i skolan. Avgränsa dina ämnen. “Det är nya tider nu. Det är digitalt.”.

I was thought in school. Scope, don’t let the subject matter become to extended. “New times, it is digital.”

Minister: Peter Eriksson – Housing and Digital? Minister of Digitalisation in 2017? Stop it right now! OK. Nxt post.

Japan Granted 28 People Asylum Last Year?

October 25th, 2017 Comments off

What do you mean by that? Well, nothing specific really more than the distribution seems skewed and that homogeneity may play a part in social stability.

Japan had a population of 127 000 000 and 28 (twentyeight) people were granted asylum in Japan in 2016.

Sweden had a population of 9 903 000 and granted 67258 (sixtyseventwohundredeight) people asylum the very same year.

As always one should proceed with caution when dealing with statistics.

No. of asylum seekers: 10901/111979
No. poeple granted asylum: 28/67258
App. population (in Millions): 127’/9,9′

The fact that Japan in contrast to Sweden is an island and lies in the opposit direction of the “inferno” does not in my view account for the complete picture. Mind you, I can to think of more than one country in my beloved Evropa that would have to answer some questions too… but they need indeed be asked the questions before it is reasonable to expect any answers.

Maybe it is time to look at the causes behind migration? It’s just a thought.
