The moon fascinates us all. Didn’t we all dream as a child we could go to the moon. Like Wallace refers to in “A Grand Day Out with Wallace and Gromit” (1989), “Everybody knows the moon is made of cheese. When eating the moon, he can’t place the actual taste. He consults Gromit what he thinks. “Wensleydale?, Stilton?” I don’t know lad, it’s like no cheese I ever tasted…”. Did you know that Wensleydale was almost extinct and saved by the above quote and of course the famous quote from “A Close Shave”: “Not even Wensleydale”, like how could you ever reject the best cheese there is.
110 Volt Lovers, Live in 2003
110 Volt Lovers live during last concert in 2005, when I still had hair :-) No W-30's anymore, but two E-mu ESI-32's.I must confess that I also have been influenced or inspired by the moon. I somehow like to work in the dark (as I probably have quoted Felix da Housecat’s “In the Dark We live (Thee Lite)” many times). For instance, one of the songs I composed for our life performances with my band was called: “Mare Serenitatis” (Sea of Serenity). The track was almost dreamy ambient and was actually meant to load new sounds in out 2 Roland W30 samplers. When we were preparing for Bram’s birth in 2000, I bought a soft moon with a music box that played “Au Claire de la Lune”. Back to this G-Shock. Maharishi is a clothing brand founded by Hardy Blechman in 1994. Maharishi means Great Sage or Spiritual Leader in Hindi. The Main goal of Maharishi is to design fair traide, long lasting high quality clothes by using natural materials like hemp, organic cottons and recycled military clothing. Before Hardy Blechman started Maharishi he worked in the Army Surplus branch. He is a big collector of camouflage patterns, which in the British Army is better known by the abbreviation DPM, Disruptive Pattern Material. While camouflage patterns are often used on for military clothing and objects, Maharishi strives to use DPM for peaceful purposes and that’s why they also use terms like Pacifist Military Design and Pacifist Prepper.
The GD-X6900 in general can be best described as a beefed-up version of the DW-6900. The DW-6900 was in the past in Japan by some collectors were called the Triple Eyed Devil. It seems the devil has grown even bigger. It’s not only beefed-up, it has also improved from it’s “little” older brother. It comes with the 3420 module. At first glance the display looks quite the same. I love the way the seconds are animated in the three eyes. The big one for the 10 seconds, the smaller ones for the single seconds. Just like the old 1289 module.Setting time on a GD-X6900 has become a bit easier. Where you could only change the hours and minutes forward on the DW-6900, you can now also scroll back. For many people who live in a country with Summertime or Daylight Saving Time there is also good news. It’s now integrated in the settings for Timekeeping. I have had some problems with DST changes in the past. If you change the time forward from Wintertime to Summertime after 23:00, the day and date do not change, so your watch stays one day behind. The same thing can happen the other way around if you change after 00:00 back Wintertime. Maybe it sounds like a big thing, but you often change form Wintertime to Summertime and back just before you go to sleep. In the weekends that might be just somewhere between 23:00 and 01:00. No problems with that on the GD-X6900. Just switch DST on or off and if needed, the day and date changes automatically. It is off course pretty important that you input your Home Time Zone correctly (that’s for me +1 in winter and +2 in summer). You can switch between the 12 hour and 24 hour notation by pushing the bottom right button. In the settings of Timekeeping you can also specify the length of the illumination by pushing the upper right button when the seconds lashes. A small light symbol means the duration is 1.5 seconds, a big light symbol means 3 seconds. Also you find the Flash Alert here. When an Alarm sounds from one of the Alarms, the Hourly Signal, the Countdown Timer or the Auto-Start of the Stopwatch, the display lights up with the tones. This function was also present on the old DW-6900, only you could toggle it on or off without entering the setting screen.
