Henrik Carlsson's Blog

This photo seems like a good seasonal one, since the season is quite ambiguous here right now. The calendar says it’s fall but the sub-zero temperature and the frost and snow doesn’t seem to agree.

This is my liquid for the photo challenge. A plain and simple Coke as I’m sitting down behind the trusted old Yamaha 01V96 to mix a discussion panel on filmmaking. Good stuff!

Up close with a Focusrite ISA preamp.

I had originally planned to make a similar photo with a mixing console that I introduced to my students today but time ran out and I needed to get home before the kids bedtime so this was the closest thing I could find in my office.

Today I’ve taken one of our cars, a Saab 9-3, to the repair shop for some service of the block heater. Important stuff when the Swedish winter is approaching.

This photo is my contribution to today’s theme for the photo challenge is ”On the move”

Two parts gin, one and a half part Cointreau and one part freshly squeezed lemon juice. Shake until freezing cold and you’ve made yourself a White Lady, a truly tasty cocktail.

Speaking of Twin Peaks: The Return, that is a show that I just can’t get out of my head. I think about it almost everyday, trying to make sense of it.

I don’t think it’s the best tv show ever but certainly one of the most memorable.

I pass this wire pole almost everyday when I’m walking with Ebbe for his nap and I’m fascinated by how it looks. There something about it that reminds me of Twin Peaks: The Return.

Turns out the problem with webmentions was due to my new VPS not having the mb_string extension for php installed and that caused the semantic linkbacks plugin to fail which in turn caused the webmentions plugin to do as well.

I just watched a Kurzgesagt video on how far we’ll ever be able to reach into the universe. I didn’t know and had never thought about the things in the video. Not only are we limited in how far we’ll ever be able to reach in the universe as a species, as time moves on the rest of the universe won’t even be observable from our corner of it.

Even thought I, and anyone who’s likely to read this, will be long gone before this will matter it still made me feel melancholic. I guess sometimes I just don’t want to be reminded about the fact that everything will eventually end. Not just me and everyone I’ll ever known, will know or interact with, but every living thing – the universe itself – will eventually and.

I’ve been putting off moving my main site from a shared host to a VPS for what feels like an eternity. I know I got to do it because it’ll make the site a lot faster and thereby making blogging more enjoyable.

Maybe tonight’s the night when I start the process?

This thing that Google does where links in search results are actually to their own URLs and not the permalinks is just pure crap!

I just saw a year old article about Pinterest buying Instapaper. I had completely missed that.

A few years ago I was an avid Instapaper user and I cared a lot about it and its future but as I had less and less time to read the stuff I put in my queue my interest decreased.

I had planned to do a microcast per weekday now, but today there won’t be an episode. I’m just not in the mood for it, my brain is preoccupied with too many other things and I’m way too tired as well. Hopefully I’ll get back on schedule tomorrow.

Implemented a few small changes on the theme of my blog, the biggest one being inline comments on the feed pages. Still some bugs to fix.

@johnjohnston You use SemPress for your blog, right? Have you encountered the problem that the theme adds titles to title-less posts and that those titles then F-s up the Micro.blog syndication?

I made an almost complete purge of my RSS subscriptions in FeedWrangler and moved most of the feeds to a river of news instead. Hope that it’ll make following blogs feel like less of a commitment and more like something fun.

This is so awesome! This guy tried to figure out How much an actual Imperial Star Destroyer would cost. While the Star Destroyer is a bit pricey a TIE fighter costs basically the same as a Model S. Given that choice I know what I would choose.

Okay, that was a great episode! Will go for the season finale tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. I love this show!

Time for the ninth episode of Westworld. I simultaneously want to finish it today to know how it ends and don’t want it to ever end!

Linn and I gave up on Twin Peaks a few minutes into episode three. It was just way too weird and incoherent for us. Instead we’ve started watching Westworld. We’re six episodes into it and I love it! Great show!
