NastyBass for the PocketPiano

I made a sketch for critter and guitari’s Pocketpiano Arduino-shield (it was the for the first Arduino I bought, and the reason I bought the first Arduino)
There is a video of me explaining it here:

But Critter and guitari ( http://www.critterandguitari.com/home/store/arduino-piano.php ) newer published the source-code I sent to him/them, whatever.

And since this one guy asked for it on the internets I though I’d share it with you all, so here it is: PocketPiano_NastyBass

Another get rich quick scheme.

So what I’ve heard that you get a quarter of a hundredth of a Swedish Krona every play you get from on Spotify. So I was thinking that I might try and get rich by doing very little.

I made some calculations on how much I could get if I played one song continuously, without further ado:

So I’m gonna go to cdbaby with a CD with 15 new songs, that all should be about one seconds long. So if I do this and only play the songs myself on repeat I’ll make 78 840 Sek in a year, that’s about 10 000 Usd or 8000 Eur.

To skew the results I’ll try and skew the results in my favor by naming the songs to very bland and easy to find if you search for other songs, mohahahahaha.

Here are the 15 songs with my new band “Get RITCH QUICK!” and the album “The sound of money”

01 The
02 Love
03 She
04 One
05 My
06 A
07 Money
08 Lets let’s
09 Its it’s
10 In
11 I
12 Dont don’t
13 Come
14 Baby
15 All

Android Audio

Android, why do I come back to this platform? It could be so awesome, but it’s full of fail. Lately I’ve been trying to get a X/Y  pad thing going on, Like a kaossilator thing.
While it works in principal, it does have some latency. about 100ms latency. That’s not musicians grade at all! I have however managed to apply dirty trix and evil hacks.

Expect at least 3 touchscreen-driven musical instruments on the Android from me and Staffan, and since the Android market is a bad place to be if you want to charge for your apps, we’ll try out Advertisement this time around.

I’m a better driver than most.

In Sweden, you are not allowed to be good at anything, it’s called Jantelagen and it comes sneaks up upon you even though you know it exists. One thing is that there are some “statistics” from a “survey” that everybody knows of (though I have not been able to find it) that say that “90% of the Swedish population think that they are better driver then most”. This “fact” is often followed by a chuckle and and the appendix “that cant be true, because 90% is more then 10%, and that’s not half”. This kills anyone dead that think they are a good driver.

The important thing here I think is that Swedes as a people totally forgets to analyze why the alledged 90% think they are good drivers. (trust me, we are not a land of champion f-1 drivers). Is it because they think that everybody else does lots of mistakes and drive badly (perhaps because of stupidity)? Or is it because you think you’re special (as the jante law tells you that you cannot be).

I know I make mistakes while driving, I know I forget rules from time to time, especially seldom used ones. I know I don’t remember all the roadsigns. What I also know is that I do know these things and when I made a mistake or found something that I’m unsure of, I look it up. I try to improve, that’s makes me a better driver then most other drivers I think. I avoid putting anyone in dangerous situations, or situations that I cant control. When it’s bad weather (like loads of snow and stuff) and I don’t need to use the car, guess what, I don’t!

What I’m saying is that I try to improve, and I use common sense, and I think that makes me a better driver.

Avatar

So I watched that Avatar movie last night and I spent way to much time thinking about how one of the people would taste like. I think they would taste best BBQ’ed. jumm jumm.

On a side-note I’m turning 33 today, Hooray for me!
