‘They Live’ by John Carpenter & Nada comic by Ray Nelson

The film that time has caught up with. They Live (1988) is a fantastic sci-fi film that in extremely many ways foresaw the future and explains at least the rough concept of what is going on in our world. Although the quality of the film is sometimes below average and placing itself in the B-film category. It's ...

Dwight D. Eisenhower quotes and documentary

Recently I thought through some music video ideas. One was within the topic of the military-industrial complex. Former U.S. president Dwight Eisenhower's farewell speech to the nation is a classic and my idea about the music video stopped short there. Instead like many times and about many other people before, I dived into reading up ...

Automata film review “When the dialogue stops”

The film offers no groundbreaking take or vision about the future of artificial intelligence. Yet films like Automata and Transcendence, keep the topic alive in the mainstream so to speak. Offering updates to the already established sci-fi visions of Terminator and Matrix (not to make the list longer). We need these cinematic and free thinking ...

Höstdikt ‘Samtal om vädret’

By Tuesday, October 28, 2014 0 , Permalink 2

Svarta träd, prydda med enstaka löv, i gult, eller rött.   Det är dimmigt, molnen ligger lågt.   ”Hade jag haft en häst, skulle jag ridit på gatan idag!”   Det är lugnt överallt, bland stenbrickor ó stenbroar. Porlar och flyter gör den smala älven.   ”Hade jag sett dig på gatan ridande på häst, skulle jag bli överlycklig!”

Zager & Evans ‘In The Year 2525′ music video and lyrics

Here's a video I cut from the classic apocalyptic sci-fi film Metropolis for the very short sci-fi folk song In The Year 2525 by Zager & Evans. I really found them fitting together in a transhumanism/Aldoush Huxley kind of way. What awaits at the end of singularity? If we ever get there? Thea von Harbou ...

Dum Pater Familias lyrics in Latin, English and Español

Another beautiful choir chant by Ensemble Organum and for those interested in what is actually sung. Here's a translation from Latin to English and to Spanish/Español. I really enjoy this music but not always the actual lyrics of it - yet the chant is so devotional that it elevates beyond and above the lyrics. Listen ...

David Hume – impressioner, idéer och fri information

Hume anser att impressioner är vår direkta upplevelser medan idéer är ur fantasin skapade sekvenser av dessa. Om vi tar politiken som exempel så kokar den ihop impressioner som människor känner igen - varvid massorna väljer det hopkok (idé) som är mest bekant och resonerar med deras förståelse och kunskap inom något. Alltså är dom ...

Autumn roadtrip over Hardanger

I've been to Sognefjell, Rondane and Jotunheimen but never over Hardanger. Once on Norwegian slow television they showed the seven hour train journey from Oslo to Bergen. After seeing that and even though in winter I did the trip, as I lived in Oslo back then. Seeing the landscape I already then planned a road ...

Torpo stave church

Here's another stave church from this years last roadtrip in Norway. It's the Torpo stave church, located in Buskerud on a hillside overlooking the valley below. Beautiful surroundings as always and some extra for the autumn mood. This summer's road trips have made me compulsive about stopping by every stave church I manage. There are ...
