The second part of my Christmas gift for myself arrived today; an Electro Harmonix Little Big Muff. Glorious sound!
My other synth is a DSi MoPho, which is monophonic and its modulation matrix is annoying to program but gloriously flexibel.
So far I don’t have any Volcas but several of those where on the table for me when I decided on which synth to buy. The Volca Modular har more of a Buchla approach to things, rather than a Moog style approach to things, right?
And that’s probably why I feel especially negative toward the idiots on ”the left”, rather than on ”the right”. The stupidities of ”the right” is fairly simple to ignore. Just don’t read their fringe publications. Ignoring stupidities from ”the left” on the other hand would require me to ignore so much mainstream press.
A late Christmas present (from me to me) arrived today. It’s a Korg Minilogue XD. I’ve just started playing with it and it sound great.
Now I’m unwinding from the day by playing some Mario Maker. Though right now I’m probably winding myself back up over this hellish course. (Not the one in the photo.)
Today the film and television students made a tv production of a floor ball game. It was an outside broadcast production, so they had to set up all their gear in the arena. I was there as a handler, for the first time on one of their outside broadcasts. It was quite a lot of fun.
Great find at the supermarket today. Perfect start to the year of buying things on plastic discs.
Today I’ve been at home with the kids. It’s been a “study day” at their preschool, which means that the staff have meetings and courses so the kids need to be at home.
Stayed up way too late tonight watching tv. After an episode of Netflix’s Messiah I started watching the Fyre Festival documentary and it was really fascinating. So many tasteless, clueless idiots.
A week or so ago I ordered some electronics stuff that arrived today. Yay! I’ll get back to making the Raspberry Pi music player soon.
As for today it’s been a day of nothing but administrative tasks. The nice part was that I got to work from home which I always try to do at least once a week and it’s a nice change of pace.
It’s gotta be possible to find a movie okay but not great.
Was it that the commentary helped in expressing his intentions with the movie, or where they just fun/interesting comments?
Today was another day of mostly administrative work. I did have one two-hour lecture on Mastering Music for Streaming Platforms but other than that I was mainly at my desk.
I did manage to complete scheduling and room booking for the next course that I am in charge of, even though it doesn’t happen until April. That made me happy and I now feel that I have many administrative things under control.
Today we stayed indoors for the whole day, except for a quick walk that I took in the late afternoon. We’ve done som laundry and general tidying up of stuff and packed for tomorrow, the first proper work and school day of the year for all of us.
At Mall of Scandinavia.
Today we spent some time there after a hotel breakfast and then we headed back home to Sundborn. Overall the trip to Stockholm was nice. Everybody had a good time and it feels good to be back home now.
Today the whole family is in Stockholm. Linn and Iris went to Disney on Ice while Ebbe and me walked around the Globe area before heading for our hotel.
Right now we’re strolling around in Mall of Scandinavia.

This is my office at work. I share it with a colleague but most of the time he’s not there so I get to have it for myself.
Today I spent quite a bit of the work day here. Many small things that needed to be done. Also we tried out some surround sound things for the tv studio which was fun and successful.
First work day of the year. Today was the first proper studio session of the education for a few of the first year students. We/they recorded a kind of Nine Inch Nails sounding thing that I wrote some years ago.
New Year’s Day is Pizza Day in Sweden. It is the day where pizza sales are the highest of the year. This year we made our own.
Happy New Years!
I thought the movie was really good. Maybe not quite as good as the first Frozen but highly entertaining.
Viktigt perspektiv. Vi ser så mycket negativt men på det stora hela går väldigt mycket i rätt riktning.
