Does this mean that I’m a musician…For clues that I have some way to go, look no further.
After having been on the Japanese market for quite a while, Ubisoft is about to launch Jam Sessions to the rest of the world.
Jam Sessions is a Guitar Simulator, and unlike Guitar Hero, it’s focusing on reality, as this (Hidari Mae: Logical Conclusion) great sounding sample demonstrates – it was made without real guitars!
The concept is that you strum the guitar using the touch screen, and use the navigation keys to create chords.
So I might pick up the “guitar” again, it’s been more than 25 years since I tried to learn how to play the guitar – I sort of managed to get the technical details right, and it’s still in “my fingers” – but it never really amounted to anything – you know music is about feelings and “letting go” – when I was 18 I was a serious uptight old fart, with no concept of feelings, I think I might fare better today, and I’ve actually been jamming with my oldest niece using her acoustic guitar, and it actually sounded much better after she coached me – I was amazed or maybe I’m just tone-deaf ;-).
I’m NEVER going to master a traditional game controller, but the new generation of gaming concepts that Nintendo is pioneering strikes a SERIOUS chord (pun intended ;-)) with me.
Too bad, Art Day Out today has been cancelled – or rather postponed, so I’m available – the weather is nice – anyone tempted?
Vist nok ikke! Men det er da en udfordring.
Last Letter to his Wife
I am dead because I lack desire,
I lack desire because I think I possess.
I think I possess because I do not try to give.
In trying to give, you see that you have nothing;
Seeing that you have nothing, you try to give of yourself;
Trying to give of yourself, you see that you are nothing:
Seeing that you are nothing, you desire to become;
In desiring to become, you begin to live.
I received this beautiful poem as a nabcast (special Podcasts that can be subscribed to if you have a Nabaztag) two weeks ago, and it has been a strong motivation, it reflects exactly how I feel right now, and I’m begining to live.
I highly recommend the nabcast Heartfelt (you find it in the Poetry category) by Marvel – even though it’s listed as being in French it’s actually in English, and PoemHunter.com is a wonderful site.
Spring, gør sjove ting med min krop
Kan ikke få nok, er en prop
HOP! IKKE STOP!
Og sørme om undertegnede ikke også dukker op i Podcasten, endda i “forside” historien, og det FØR Jesper Brøckner fra Telia – LOL.
Computerworld har da styr på deres prioriteter :-D.
Ja, der findes mindst en “fonero” i Taastrup.
Citat fra artiklen i dagens Computerworld
44-årige Kim Bach er en af 4.500 danskere, der indtil videre har meldt sig ind i Fon.
– Jeg kan godt lide Fon ud fra en idealistisk tankegang. Jeg mener, at internetadgang er noget, som bør være universelt tilgængeligt, og i et land som Danmark burde man have en mere åben politik omkring det, for det er vigtigt, at man har den adgang, siger Kim Bach.
