Here on the last day of 2003 I wish all readers a Happy New Year!

"Toto, something tells me we ain´t in Kansas no more..."
-----
Didn´t have the time to wish the readers of this blog a merry etc, but here it is etc.
A usual Christmas presented an abundance of unhealthy, but tasty, food as well as pompous television performances by the most worn out has beens of the pop circuit - And a few pleasant surprises:
The Wizard of Oz - I´ve never seen this 1939 classic in full and not only did it catapult Judy Garland into her troublesome stardom but it also contains a wealth of hidden meaning:
At one point the scarecrow says "And some people do an awfull lot of talking without using their head at all..." it´s 1939 folks, do we know of a big mouth back in those days?...
Dorothy and her three palls set out to reach "The Emerald City" where the great wizard of Oz lives, but The Wicked Witch of the West (...) creates a huge field of poppies outside the city and the poppies send them to sleep so they can´t reach the city - we all know what comes out of certain poppies that sends people to sleep so they can´t reach their dreams, don´t we?
Second nice surprise was seeing Gladiator for the third time. I suppose much can be said - especially here in the worlds best wellfare state and the home of the famous film director Lars VW-Van-to-Nepal- Trier about the strenght and honour morale of the film and its level of historical correctnes, but the opening scene with Maximus´walking through a field of crops with his hand gently caressing the wheat strands is a favourite film moment.

Cheap housing - expensive learning.

Interesting weblog by an architect (?) about low-cost houses. At the bottom of the page you wil see he has also discovered the works of Danish art, design and social terrorism group R98
- sorry my mind wandered off there and I misspelled: N55

Don´t wait up, honey.

More and more Danish men visit prostitutes. The latest explanation is this : These men have been sexually abused in their childhood and that´s why they have the completely perverted and unnatural desire to go and have brief self-gratifying sexual intercouse without the use of bestselling books, massage oils, or soothing music by Lis Sorensen.
Of course these sick pervy bastards should be burned at the stakes - don´t they realise that men are not to have sexual desires? that´s what got women pregnant all the time and enslaved them for milleniums!
Cut it off I say. A man with sexual desires that can be satisfied without the aid of a 80.000 DKR wedding, a 15.000 DKR wedding dress and a 1.000.000 DKR apartment must simply be suffering from a severe mental disease.

Aviation 100 years
-----
This blog will of course take part in the general celebration of 100 years of powered flight. As always we cater to the nerdy who also have a touch of a childish and politically un-correct fascination for The Third Reich.
Ignored in some of the programmes shown on TV about the anniversary (remember: The Krauts didn´t go to Iraq...) the German-made Messerschmith Me 262 was the worlds first operational jet fighter and marked the true beginning of the jet age as this was an aerolane in daily use from the Autumn of 1944 - mainly against allied bomber formations - and not an experimental plane or testbed.
A group of American airplane enthusiasts have spent the last 4-5 years building a replica Me 262 from scratch, with the aim to make it airborne! And about a year ago they actually succeeded:

R.I.P Johnny "Bulder" Nielsen 1941-2003
-----
My uncle Johnny is to be buried today. In his younger years he was the Danish national champion of wrestling - both as a junior and senior wrestler - and I remember being very impressed as a child by two full boards of medals he´d won for wrestling hung at my aunts and his home. He also participated in the 1968 summer Olympics in Mexico.

Flags out, gents.

Funny thing about art academies - and I went to one, Royal and all: If you want to make art you should stay away from them, but if you want to become an artist you should not.

A: Hello
B: Yes...
A: I can´t make my computer print!
B: Er, try to go to bla, bla, bla, MENU, bla, bla, bla and then, ba, bla ,bla (B is now trying to imagine the interface of an OS he´s not using at the moment, while on his number three job- bloodvessels in his brain are cheerfully leaping into burn-out land by the millions)
A: I´ve tried that, it doesn´t work!
B: Well, er, uhm, then try to, bla, bla, bla, and turn on, bla, bla, bla
A: There is nothing happening!
B: Hmmm this really IS strange, I mean if you have connected the printer with it´s cables and you have..
A: I have to connect the printer to the computer first?
B: To print? - yes....
A: Oh.

MCMCVXIII...etc

Ever needed to convert from Arabic numbers to Roman numbers? - or the other way round? - Well why don´t you just leap right over to www.novaroma.org/via_romana/numbers.html and start converting those numbers!
Yes, Arabs invented the numeral system we are using today -and they also came up with the bright idea of the "zero" - a symbol for the value of nothing. Guess we wouldn´t have had computers without that discovery...

New York, New York.

Snatched off the pages of NSOP: The City of New York is planning to name a street after Joey Ramone
I´ll remember that the next time the left wing in Denmark lashes out on the US.

(yes I know it´s not the same people doing this who are running the oil companys or MacDonalds, but how many cultures on this planet have room for both?)
