Swedish flag: Pirate edition

May 19th, 2007

My friend Veqtor came up with a simple yet brilliant idea yesterday. Since Sweden is probably the home of the world’s most enthusiastic pirate activists, and also The Pirate Bay, why not make a Swedish flag with a pirate logo on it?
Well, said and done. The first one features the logo of Piratbyrån, the Swedish pirate information movement. The second is for my friends in Piratbion, the Swedish Pirate Cinema movement, that aims to show provide a free outdoors cinema epxerience. (Free popcorn always included!)

Yesterday’s dj set at piratbion and a Super Mario wallpaper

May 14th, 2007

Yesterday I dj’d at a support party for Piratbion (The Swedish pirate cinema project) I mostly played happy danceable chip music but also some techno and drum’n'bass. All in all it was fun and the crowd enjoyed the music. I think I managed to get the music going pretty well even though I only used winamp rather than some big cheesy piece of software like Traktor. The simple reason is that my computer is too slow. (Traktor runs, but skips and stalls form time to time)
Now I just regret that I forgot to blog about it before it happened. But pictures from the event will be available as soon as someone has time to upload them. I’ll give it a post when that happens.

Electronic Yuuka
During the show I also received a little note with a myspace address on it for a project called Electronic Yuuka. I don’t know what to think about it. It’s the same kinda “I don’t care”-electro music as NSR+BBF and MaléolPastek. It can certainly be nice sometimes, but it’s not my kind of everyday music.

I really fell in love with the drawing though. What is it? My best guess is “A dark red lemon with a face on it”, but if you have a better guess, tell me!

Before I went up there, I was bored, and I thought my wallpaper of L was a bit outdated. (Especially since he died a few episodes ago) So I decided to make a new one, honoring the 8-bit theme of the night. It’s a Super Mario wallpaper for your desktop background. I’m actually pretty satisfied with it.
The only thing I’m not satisfied with is the fact that it’s only 1024*768. That’s ok for my laptop screen, but might not look good in other resolutions. So if you just neeeed it in another resolution, leave a comment and I’ll make a pixel faithful version for your resolution.
I may also do other versions, for example one for each kind of power-up, if there’s an interest in it. Again, leave me a comment and I’ll see what I can do.

I’d also like to have some guesses as for which game the graphics are from. No, it’s not as obvious as it looks.

And last but not least, a little plug for my cousin Gabriel’s myspace. He’s a psytrance producer, and he finally got confident enough to put out his stuff. It’s not really my cup o’tea, if you know what I mean, but it’s really well produced and worth the listen!
