A VL-1 thing?

So here’s my old Casio VL-Tone, the VL-1. I loved these little devices. In many ways they are where my journey into electronic music began.

So I’m doing something to do with Casio VL-Tones soon. It’s not a big thing, but it’ll be a fun thing.

A place I really need to go to …

This was an excellent recommendation, and one I think I might need to get to a few times. I’ve never been to the Musical Museum at Kew Bridge, and up until a few days ago, I’d never even heard of it! It sounds (pun intended) like somewhere I should be very well acquainted with, so my plan is to sort that out very soon.

When I have, expect pictures, over enthusiasm etc!

Remembering Shackleton and the Endurance

I really enjoyed the dramatisation with Kenneth Brannagh some years ago. I think I’ve watched it a couple of times now and the story is one that I find quite inspiring. So it was nice to see these commemorative stamps. At some point I’d like to find out a bit more about him and his other expeditions. One day I’ll do that.

Science Museum: Ada Lovelace

I was quite surprised that it was actually quite a small exhibition for a character as important as Ada Lovelace. Even so, it was a nice little exhibition with some interesting facts. I’m sure they could’ve found more, I’m sure they could’ve got hold of more stuff about her, but anyway, I’m glad that they at least had an exhibition about her. That’s something.

Guy Fawkes night

I think it’s important to remember that this isn’t just fireworks night, as so many people seem to have fallen into calling it, but it is in fact the day when we celebrate Guy Fawkes and what he stood for. It is Guy Fawkes night

I think it’s important to point out, and important to remember.
