I laughed at this: link

Heinz or Felix

DN made a test. They decided that Felix ketchup was better than Heinz.

They talket about a chemical taste. What?

Let me say right now, I love Heinz ketchup, and I’m not going to switch to something less tastier because a stupid test says so. Again.

So what about those chemicals?

Ingredients are: Tomatopurée (52%), vinegar (translation from ”ättika” here), Sugar, Salt, spices and herb extract (cellery amongst other things), spices.

Here’s the thing. There’s LOTS of taste in Heinz. And a great one too. Don’t eat it as it is! It was never ment for that. But it goes real well together with sausages and pasta and that sort of thing.

I guess it’s just a matter of what you are used to. Because it’s almost like you don’t want the same word for both brands. They are too different. Replacing one with the other would be like replacing a cucumber with a carrot!

Last time I tried Felix, I felt that I would rather eat my sausage without it. Rich of tomato taste? Is that sundried tomatos? Because I don’t like those.

CORRECTION: It must have been something else than Felix I ate that time, because I tried some Felix this weekend, and it was really ok. I still prefer Heinz, but the difference seem to be only in proportion of the ingredients. There is more vinegar in Heinz, and I like that.

Song finally finnished

I’ve been fiddeling with this one for a long time now. There was always something not right about it. But yesterday I removed the remaining annoyance in it, and now I am pretty happy with it.

So here you go:

Here is some of my inspiration! =)

More music by me is available here!

EDIT 2013-03-06: Fixed the music links. I moved to my own domain ages ago, but didn’t fix all old blog posts. If you find more blog posts with old links, just comment! =)

Wich way to the galaxy?

It was particularly clear tonight and when me and the boyfriend got home from our friends we just stod looking at all the beautifulness of the stars. You could clearly see the milky way.

This woke a question that I have been wondering about for some time now; wich way is the center? Is it this way? Or is it visible from the other side of the earth? I think it should be that a certain star on the sky shows the way to the center, or a constellation perhaps.

I can’t recollect being told of this, and I think this is strange.

In school, we are always asked to be able to point to our homes on maps, and to know wich planet we are on in the solar system. If we had a photo of the galaxy we would probably be asked to know where we are in it.

But when have I been asked to point in the direction of any location? I don’t remember that event ever taking place. Except for when learning to use a compass.

And yet, would that not make more sence than learning to read a map? Or at least preceed it? I can’t get to a location if I start of in the wrong direction.

Anyways, does anyone know the way to the centre of our own galaxy? I think this knowledge should be out there somewhere, if only I knew wich way to look…

Panic

A few things I have had panic over today:

  • Money
  • Jobs
  • Identity
  • My age
  • Life plan
  • horses
  • relationships (yes, plural)
  • friendships (plural again. I wish I had more time, because they need it)
  • a tent
  • bills (we allready did money, but it just never stops!)
  • food
  • addictions
  • sex
  • a group of ladies that get together once a week…

Not in that order. It’s just been a crazy day, and it’s been one crisis after another.

I’m just going to put on some soft music and read now. Don’t wake me up untill the world makes sence again, ok?

Denmark decides to remove letter secresy

I got the news here.

You see, in many countries we have been enjoying this right to send whatever we want in a letter, and it’s a secret. This is an important right if you want to have a working democracy. This is because a very important part of democracy is free media. Free media that can get tips from anonymous sources. This is easy when you have letter secresy.

(now, to investigate how free our media actually is, I leave to someone else)

Imagine if you don’t. And you discover something juicy about your prime minister (or someone else that enjoys great power in your country). She/he wouldn’t like you to tell anyone, would she/he?

How will you get away with telling media if someone (FRA) can read all your emails, open your letters and listen to your telephone calls? You will have to meet in person. And that may be hard to do while remaining anonymous…

Anyways, most of you will think I should go polish my tin foil hat. But some of you know what I am talking about.

Today, Denmark has decided that a proposal made by a swedish minister (in a sneaky way, but that’s another story) is worth listening to. They removed this democratic right. I think snailmail is still unaffected, but for how long? How long before they discover that the main threats to our scociety (illegal filesharers and terrorists, according to the ones in power) has figured email an unsafe way of communication and are now talking about their attacks (or whatever they talk about) via snail mail?

What will happen then? Will it be easy to discard our democratic rights because it’s allready been done?

Or is it, in the eyes of our governments, not possible to compare email to ordinary mail? Because they are electronic. Is that an excuse? Then, I would like for them to not compare illegal filesharing to ANYTHING material (like theft). But they do…

Ni som röstade för sänkt fastighetsskatt

Läs här.

Tro inte att jag är full av skadeglädje och ”vad var det jag sa”-känslor nu. Även om det var min första reaktion.

Nej, jag tycker faktiskt att min mor borde fått en lättnad. Hon har faktiskt varit med och byggt huset hon bor i. Det var inte gratis. Sedan har hon löst ut min far ur det. Nu när grannen huggit ner träden runt sjön (av typen al, som annars hade hindrat övergödningen av sjön) har sjöutsikten blivit bättre, så jag vet inte om hon måste betala för den. För det höjer ju taxeringsvärdet.

Man kan å ena sidan vara avundsjuk för att hon bor så fint. Å andra sidan kan man komma ihåg att hon skaffat sig allt själv, för egna pengar och eget arbete. Hon är trött på att arbeta så mycket och hon trodde på de vackra löftena.

Det skulle ha varit rättvisare om jag hade haft fel. Om löftena var sanna och det man röstade för faktiskt hände.

Som det är nu tappar man ju lixom tilltron till det demokratiska systemet. Varför ska vi rösta om de vi röstar på inte talar om vilka de är? Hur ska vi kunna säga att vi har folkstyre om folket inte har någon makt?

Vore det inte billigare att bara lotta fram vinnarna i valet?

Tråkigt nog vet jag inte om det finns något bättre alternativ…

Silly little cute game


Well it’s free… sort of. Downloadable over here. I don’t know what is so awesome about it yet. Perhaps I will descover it, perhaps not. =)

Varför man hellre fildelar än köper låsta filer

Chi An Gramfors har skrivit en krönika. Först svamlar hon om stöld och blandar ihop begrepp som vi pirater är så trötta att höra nu för tiden. Det beror på att varje antipirat som ger sig in i debatten använder samma argument. Varje gång. Som att vi skulle bli omvända av att läsa just den personens ord. Ge er. Eller hitta nya argument!

Sedan tänker jag låta er läsa det bästa i krönikan. Det är faktiskt så bra så att en pirat skulle kunnat skriva det:

Itunes är den största spelaren på marknaden. Jag älskar Itunes. Men det har sina brister. För det första är utbudet i den svenska versionen erbarmligt dåligt. Knappt någon udda eller smal musik finns att tillgå. Men det värsta är andå att när jag hör en hit på radion så finns den i princip aldrig att ladda ned förrän efter flera veckor. Om ens då. På amerikanska sajten finns den dock. Varför är det så?

Dessutom är det sjukt dyrt med nio spänn för en mp3-låt. Jag får ingen cd-skiva, inget omslag, ingenting utom en låst fil. Jag kan använda filen på max fem datorer. Denna begränsning är vansinning. Fem datorer är inte mycket när hårdvaran uppgraderas minst varje kvartal. Musiken blir låst till gamla datorer som står och dammar i garderoben. Tydligen kan jag avregistrera en dator som jag auktoriserat min musik till, men hur krångligt verkar inte det? Orkar inte ens sätta mig in i hur det funkar.

När Itunes kom trodde jag i min enfald att jag kunde köpa en mp3-låt (eller AAC då) för nio kronor och sen var den min att använda för enskilt bruk hur jag ville. Betalt och klart. Men icke. Det är ju mer som nån slags hyra. Nu lanserar Itunes DRM-fria filer. Hurra! Men då ska jag punga ut med ännu mer för att få använda musiken fritt. Tolv kronor vill de ha för detta. Ursäkta? Varför ska jag betala mer för nåt som borde vara mitt från början?. Dåligt Apple. Jag blir förbannad.
Med billigare och större utbud kan laglig nedladdning konkurrera på allvar med den olagliga fildelningen. Ändå är det så trögt och så begränsat. Så osmart.

För att sätta lite grädde på moset har aftonslaskan (isecores ord) satt en webbfråga bredvid som lyder ”Borde det vara lagligt att fildela?”. Undrar vad de som svarar nej på den frågan hade tänkt sig använda nätet till?

First snow

Blech. I wasn’t ready!

It was hard to catch with a camera, but here is a try:


New Spore video

I got news of a new spore video. It’s a short interview with Will Wright, and it really does sound like the game is going to come out this spring. Wee! =) And also it contains some new gameplay. At least it’s new to me. I’m most fascinated by what appears to be a humungos creature… Enjoy!

Who was behind it again?

Who was behind 911 again? I seem to remember it being a scertain Usama… Well, it’s not mentioned here, so maybe I’m wrong…

One BIG Granny square

I’m not finnished yet. But this is so much more fun than it looks! And it’s highly addictive…

I got the description to get me started here. And after that, it just keeps going on… =)

Zeitgeist

I just saw Zeitgeist, and I don’t want to hear another argument about religion or 911 or terrorism or war from anyone that hasn’t seen this movie!

There is some facts that can not be overlooked in this film. For example; We heard from US government that they could not have imagined anyone using a commersial jet as a weapon before 911. Yet, they say that they could not intercept these planes, as there was lots of confusion because of the drill of THE EXACT SAME THING happening at THE SAME TIME!

Personally, I think there’s just too many questionmarks around the whole thing, and has been from the start.

And if you are not going to watch it for anything else, watch it because there is some very enlightening facts about religions in the beginning of it. That part should be shown at schools. I can hardly believe that I have actually been through so many years of having ”religion” as one of my classes, and still didn’t know these simple facts!

Just go see it!

EDIT: Oh, oh! I just told you to see it! Remember that. I did NOT tell you to believe everything in it. I want you to think for yourself, even if that is pretty much what the movie tells you too… =) Some things in it, however, are undeniable. Other things you are welcome to debunk for me. Mind allready tried and failed. Are you better than him? ;)

Not stable

I’m in that specific time of the month now. It makes me vulnerable. Someone I don’t even know wrote som harsh words on pixbox, and I can’t handle it.

So if you don’t see much of me today, it’s because I can’t handle anything today. I will be knitting or something.

Wonderful tour on the horses in the forrest yesterday. I wich I had a camera with me. And the new girl in our group seems very nice!

Gah… going to make me some tea now. Byeee!

=)

Images of autumn

I took these just now…

Muddus and Zelda pic

I found my camera! It was in the pants I wore when we were walking in Muddus. Stupid of me not to remember that.

But here is some pictures!







And finally, this last one of Zelda was taken today:

To be or not to be and Talar

There haven’t been updates here. At least not as many as I could have written. I think the reason is that I kind of forgot why I wanted this blog in the first place.

I’m trying to figure it out. Do I want it to report my politic views to the world? Or to tell you all what I’ve been doing? Or… what?

What do you want to read about?

I myself find it kind of irritating to read about someones entire days and no opinions at all. It doesn’t feel like you are getting to know the person that way…

Anyways, to tell you what HAS happened, our horsebackriding classes started again. I got to ride a new horse named Talar. He is so afraid of everything! He’s afraid we’re going to steal his food. He’s afraid of strange objects. And he seemed afraid that I was going to somehow hurt him with the thing you take out the poo with.

Kindness works. And I hope everyone can see that! Because not everyone could see that with La Stocka, and it made her so afraid! And a lot of people thought she was angry or stubborn or evil or… I don’t know. But they never tried to just be kind to her…

I’m kind of afraid that the same thing will happen with Talar. Because all I can see is a little boy (granted he is a very big horse) that is curious and still believes there are good people in the world, but also knows there are harshness. But he’s a big horse, and some people get very afraid when a horse that big puts his ears back.

I think He’s so cute. I hope everyone else can see that in him too!
