Pink Floyd - Det bedste rock band i historien

Det er blot min konstatering. Pink Floyd er den britiske gruppe næst efter The Beatles, som har opnået størst kommerciel succes, med over 300 millioner albumeksemplarer solgt på verdensplan. Det er nok de færreste der ved det.

Jeg opdagede Pink Floyd da jeg var 16 år og købte "Wish You Were Here (1975)" LP'en på et marked i Spanien - nok mest fordi LP'en havde et fantastisk flot cover (allerede der var jeg fascineret af fotografiet som medie).


Denne LP'en åbnede et helt nyt musik univers og jeg vil ikke tøve med at påstå, at mange af melodierne på denne LP har været med til at definere mit liv, ved at have stor indflydelse på mit sind i en ung alder.

Numre som "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", "Welcome to the Machine" and "Wish You Were Here" står mejslet i min hukommelse og den dag i dag får jeg kuldegysning, når jeg hører dem.

Kort efter købte jeg deres 1973 udgivelse "The Dark Side of the Moon" og sidenhen fulgte de fleste af deres albums. Jeg er ikke så begejstret for deres mere syrede periode (1967-1970).

En anden gigantisk Pink Floyd milepæl var udgivelsen af albummet "The Wall (1979)" - vel nok et af de mest episke rock værker nogen siden.




Numre som "Another Brick in The Wall", "Hey You" og især nummeret "Comfortably Numb" med rock historiens bedste guitar solo, er rock musik, der vækker alle følelserne i mig - selv efter at have lyttet til dem tusinde gange.

Jeg kan anbefale alle, der endnu ikke kender Pink Floyd, at købe deres opsamlings CD - "The Best of Pink Floyd" (2 Disc).

x-teams

I've just ordered a new book from Amazon. The name "x-teams" immediately caught my eye as I read about it in the Danish business newspaper - Børsen. The reviewer assigned 5 marks out of six, so expectations are high.
X-Teams written by Deborah Ancona and Henrik Bresman raises an interesting question already on the front cover.
"Why do teams fail?"
The topic of the book is how to build teams that lead, innovate, and succeed. I'll write a short review as soon as I've read it.

SnapScan 9000 - be prepared for a laugh

Can you guess who the nice young man is in the image? It is me as a high school student - important years - where my passion for photography really took off. My god - 35 years has passed since those happy years.

I have just scanned b/w negatives and color slides from these years, and it has been hilarious to see the pictures again. Since many of the images are not something to boast about, the mission was only to get the old negatives and slides converted to digital format. Since I have many pictures from my analog years this conversion process must also go quickly.

Therefore I have just tested JOBO Snapscan 9000. It took med just 5 minutes to unpack it and set up. The scanning process is extremely simple. You install an SD card in the scanner, and then feed negatives or slides into the scanner by the help of various rails and frames - one at a time. The scan process only takes 4 seconds per negative / slide. The scanner has some simple correction options such as built-in color corre…
