so after another pair of lost earphones i figured i might as well get some decent headphones i can use during my commute to work/where ever. After going through amazon for a few hours, i came to a conclusion that there arent really any headphone’s i’d be willing to wear in public.. until i found these… very modest and nice looking cans. The sound quality is nothing special, pretty much the same as my low-end sennheisers at work. the build quality however is very nice and it has held up quite well for the past month or 2. the only downside is that they are really stiff… wearing them for several hours makes your ears/head hurt… for a quick commute on a bike/skates or doing some sports it is excellent… wont fall off your head no matter what you do… but not good for sitting behind the computer for half the day.
So i got upgraded from a stationary to a macbook at work… heres some thoughts on working with a retina mac running windows8, using a wacom
Staying true to statistics of the last 5 years, another 6 months has past and its time to move again :P hopefully this place will stick for a while :)
I was living in a tiny basement in frederiksberg since sept… since finding nice accommodation in copenhagen on short notice is pretty much impossible. When the winter came however, the situation with mold and humidity got out of hand so i started looking for a new place… and what a place did i find! i guess i was pretty lucky again… got a sweet 25sqm room in a 170sqm apartment shared between 3 people… so the place is huge… and its only 2km from my work and ~3km from the center… couldnt be more happy :) so heres a few photos…
Unfortunately i had my camera in the repairs so i had to use my ancient nikon D40 that i had left for my parents when i upgraded a few years ago… so i didnt really bother doing it that properly… so some images are a bit funky ;)
So last saturday we took a little trip to malmö… first time in sweden for me despite the fact that its only 30km away and the train costs like dkk70!
It was a great idea! Debaser is an awesome venue, i would love to find one like it in copenhagen! and as expected, the band was great, at least the best estonian performance i have ever seen…
So who ever hasnt heard yet, in june i moved to copenhagen to start working at square enix’s game studio hapti.co, specifically on the gameglobe project which has now been released into open beta!
So that means that you can just head down to the website – gameglobe.com, pick a level and just play! (or if you want a pretty avatar and to play around with the level editor, you can even register ;) it runs in your browser, just needs a quick 5 second browser plugin install and you’re ready to go!
The game itself is a free to play 3D title with a very intuitive level editor – so pretty much all of the levels are created by other users… anything form platformers, to action to puzzles…. the possibilities are endless ;)
heres a few nice ones ive played…
well well, seems like the summer has come and gone… morning bikerides have become rather freezing… especially now when living in frederikserg (missing my last place lot but what can you do…) anyways, not much has been going on, still work, meeting lots of fun people, hell, even saw a ballet (totally shattered my stereotypes :) and heres some random shots from the last weeks…
The past 3 months in cph have been magical… so many things ive done nd seen, met loads of people from all over the world and in general, it has been an awesome summer… of course life is like a rollercoaster so there are ups and downs… last weekend after hell of a party i woke up just to find my “rel” landlord behind the door telling me that the place has to be empty today… apparently the guy i was subletting from, sublet it from him with without telling him about me and many others who had been through there…. at some point he said we might need to move on 1th of october since the sublet contract would expire but he’ll see if it can be extended, and due to some reasons, he failed to keep in touch with us after that (still not 100% sure why until i get back the deposit) but long story short, i was all of a sudden packing my things… luckily i found a place next day after an hour of search… in frederiksberg… a km from the old place in (apparently finding a place in cph is hard as hell but ive been kinda lucky so far). so the old and awesome party apartment is gone :( will miss that place… made some good memories in that place… and among other things renars moved to arhus to study so its a bit more quiet in here now… so ups and downs… but looking forward to seeing what the next few months will bring… til then, heres another dump of photos fom the past few weeks (and some much older stuff)
- Great stage design with stage reaching all the way to the centre of the stadium and the sides,
- Everyone got bracelets that blinked in the rhythm of the music (only for mylo xyloto songs… most of the show was still the old stuff)
- cannons shooting mylo xyloto paper characters/logo in the air (the whole stadium was full of it)
- lasers, lights, air pumped and blinking cloth sculptures, huge beach balls in the crowd, etc.
- band full of energy, just jumping, running and sweating like hell
So 2 weeks ago found this really good friend… zoe from Brazil (completely Finnish in my mind though :P)
And together we’ve been conquering Copenhagen one day at the time… in the end of it, it was 14 nights out on town in a row… including 5 days of beach during my vacation and 5 days where i slept max of 5h due to going to work the next morning… but it has been a blast! Met so many cool people, made many friends, discovered the city and in general, it has been most fun ive had since hojskole ^^.
