Signs II

April 7th, 2020 Comments off


Direction – the glove fell from the coat hanger and landed on the hall floor exactly in that position (I promise.).


Discarded solitaires – salvaged one-by-one, each everyone of them.


On the move – on the other side of the ocean. The slippers’ feet are located to the east on the opposite side of the earth.


Thorn lids – Eight laptops in total all destroyed on purpose by the looks of it. The lids thorn from their casing including matching power adapters with cut cords…


Cut cables – Eight power adapters all destroyed on purpose by the looks of it. The cables cut including matching laptops with thorn lids…


Dangerous cousins – empty gas canisters in the recycling room? They’re not supposed to be there and in an event of a fire (there’s been two in recent years) they equate to not one but two possible bombs.


Non-breathable – it’s yellow and it’s hazardous.


Fade Resist – referencing the sky in late summer, it will come!


Fade Resist – inverted.

  7. Numbers.
  8. The machine.

* Actually it was made in Sweden in the mid 60’s.

  1. It’s the title of a song.
  2. Same day (more or less).
  3. It rained hard and the wind was blowing earlier the same day or Angles+Or+Angels?
  4. Found treasures. Always set to I (On).
  5. One of them is salvaged from the trash bin. No, not the horse. It’s from Falun or Mora. Early.
  6. One of them is salvaged from the trash bin. No, not the horse. It’s from Falun or Mora. Musch later.
  7. Machine one (1) salvaged from the trash bin.
  8. Machine two (2) salvaged from the same trash bin. No, it’s a similar but entirely different machine. They just happen to look alike (that actually not the whole truth, but in any event they’re by no means the same…).

I’m so bored…

That is the formula.

It is non-failable, trustworthy, from the other seas’ and it is ancient mu-mu, the jaguar and well beyond that.

It was knowledge passed down from the elders of HW-sound handling and my master of HW-sound mangement.

“- What now?”
“- We need: two 1200*s and a 500 mixer in a case, two double 18” and amps (incl. cables!). No, we don’t need an equalizer and we need some lights and cellophane to.
“- These?”
“- No, (every time come none pay and play day…). Are you out of your mind? We’re playing tonight and we need to setup in two hours! Come on! I mean, that case and those 1200’s are Frankenstein on a good day.”
“- They’re bojsänken, on a good day…”
“- Ok… How about these…?”

  1. Analogue stuff and absolute build quality.
  2. Analogue history (it used to be or has always been the preferred; brand.). They’re size 10.
  3. Size 5 and they’re not mine.
  4. Lights at the place where I dwell.
  5. The Little Black Bear – no, not the human!
  6. Looking to my left now… is it a large index finger or a small leg? Is it succulent?
  7. A none unfamiliar symbol.

La cité.

Old School

March 26th, 2020 Comments off



ANDRA TRYCKNINGEN


TRYCKT HOS P.PALMQUISTS AKTIEBOLAG, STOCKHOLM 1920
203311


It is my grandmother’s old school book; EUKLIDES’ FYRA FÖRSTA BÖCKER. I don’t know how she felt about geometry, but I suspect that is was not her favourite subject. Then again I could be completely wrong. We never had time to discuss it and I know for a fact that my little sister disapproves the concept/subject matter all together.

Book one to four stretches 128 pages, there’s a fifth and a sixth book to boot…

Old school? As far as I know (reading the signature) it would have been her first year in high school. Round about 1927 or possibly earlier; “Ring I”.

Then she had to learn Latin too (I have her dictionary and it was printed in 1924). ALEA IACTA EST as she would sometimes say; that’s proper old school education for you!
