gerade hinstellen und loslaufen



Ich bin am Mittwoch nach Berlin umgezogen. London war mir dann auf Dauer einfach zu heftig und ich habe dort viel zu viel Zeit damit verschwendet, depressiv zu sein und mich selbst nicht leiden zu können. Da hab ich keine Lust mehr drauf. Mal sehen, wie es hier wird.

Ich bin auf alle Fälle hinreichend aufgeregt und darüber hinaus auch auf der Suche nach einer Bleibe.

Es gibt viel zu tun. Auf geht's

I've done some research on DIY ribbon controllers recently, and after what seems like endless pondering, I'm coming up with results! Building these things is ridiculously easy. And cheap. And fun.

I'm trying to teach myself some techniques and test different materials as I'm thinking this would be a perfect thing to show people how to build in workshops.

Moving and all is taking up a lot of time and brain, so I'm not too sure if I'm gonna be able to do it in London before I leave. It's a bit of a shame, but I already have so many things to do I won't stress myself too much about it.

I'm outta here



Dear London friends,

I've mentioned it earlier, so I guess some of you are aware that I am leaving London for good quite soon. Right now, I'm planning my leaving party.

Which is going to happen on 4/4/14 at my home.

Obviously, this is a big thing for me. I would like to celebrate the time I spent here with the people I spent it with. So if you ever thought about me as someone you enjoyed having met, please consider coming. Oh, and please bring your nice friends and drinks, too.

If the weather works in our favour, we're gonna meet in the afternoon to do a nice bbq in Burgess Park, where we'll stay until we feel like going over to my place which is just around the corner. There, we shall drink alcoholic beverages and such, talk to each other, and have one nice time together. I'm not super fussed about the music. Please bring your songs, so we can either dance or sit around listening to them.

There's probably gonna be some kind of live multimedia extravaganza. Not quite sure how exactly.

Just two things:

1: It is gonna be in South London. Crossing a river doesn't hurt nearly as much as you'd imagine it would. I do it on a daily basis. Also, not being able to do so doesn't count as a valid excuse for not showing up. There's enough space to stay the night. 2: Don't click the 'join' button unless you are at least 95% sure you're gonna show up. For some weird reason, I tend to expect people who say they'll come to actually do so. Please don't disappoint me needlessly.

And another thing:

I'm quite broke and the whole moving thing is gonna eat up a significant amount of money. I was first thinking of organising some kind of a more 'event-ish' fundraiser benefit whatever with an entry fee and sold drinks, but then I decided that the stress of organising such a thing in combination with the moving preparations would probably give me at least a minor nervous breakdown, so no. I would very much appreciate if you'd consider buying some of the cool stuff that I'm thinking of selling:

Like a roll of my 'der Warst' sticky tape.

Or some really cool handmade Glow in the Dark der Warst T-shirts. (mostly small sizes left, though...)

I might make some kind of super special edition CD until then, as well.

I'll have a Look around what else I can find...

I'd also be open for donations, if you don't want any of my stuff...

So yeah, Love, Simon

Servas Salzburg...



What I learned today:

ALWAYS check your ticket thoroughly before you go to the airport. ESPECIALLY when you are absolutely sure you know which day you are travelling on. Chances are you're gonna waste 2,40 € for the bus and a lot of nerves because you think you missed your plane.

See you tomorrow, London.

recovering...



Data recovery is a weird thing. I'm right now having a nice program called 'photorec' scan my the 40 Gig hard drive that I had in my interim computer in 2010. It is unbelievable how the internet apparently floods your computer with random pictures and stuff. I'm so gonna make something out of all those random files. Fingers crossed, though, that I'm actually gonna find the pictures I'm looking for.

Yep, this time, I actually managed to both bring my Flip camera and ask someone to film for me. I should do this more often.
