93% funded and 11 days to go


My Kickstarter has been going really well. I am now 93% funded and only needs 2,164 Danish crowns (330$ - 290€ - 250£) to reach the goal. So amid Corona virus fear, Steemit (the crypto-social-media I have been using) experiencing a hostile takeover, possible global recession and global warming, my Kicktstarter is at least one thing that can really cheer me up.

Now I only need the last sprint and I will be able to relax and get on with Phill. First thing will be a front page, and then I have to plan a bit ahead, but I am really looking forward to actually get on with the story.

From my Kickstarter video

I have had a lot of great feedback, also from people who wanted to support in other ways. A foundation encouraged me to apply for a grant, people have just sent me money, and best of all: people told me that they found the oval window that we had installed in the living room really beautiful - which goes to show that my film tricks have gone unnoticed. The fact that what is behind the window is a sort of hyperbole Copenhagen with a large spaceship slowly making a landing, hasn't seemed to destroy the illusion.

The film is made with open source software: Natron, Blender and Krita.

Genuine unyuppified Copenhagen and the freedom of speech

The Museum of Copenhagen finally reopens today after a long move (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Museum_of_Copenhagen)

In 2012-13 the museum set up the interactive touchscreen big screen VÆGGEN in different public places, so everyone could post their Copenhagen pictures and add descriptive keywords. httpWijk4os://youtu.be/X34_F
I did this several times, but once my photos weren't displayed.
One of them was the first, and I had added the keyword 'diversity'.

Most of the buildings shown have disappeared since 2010 or the turn of the millennium - nothing forgotten, nothing forgiven.

I haven't been posting much lately. Busy, batty and busted. On the other hand I have been doing some of the things that was lying on the todo shelf, things that was bogging me down as they were things that was expected of me. Especially my youngest daughter have not wasted any chance to remind me that I should renovate the bike in the cellar that was left there many years ago when my eldest daughter had a normal adult bike for her birthday. The little one has grown and is not really that little any more and the blue bike she has used until now was beginning to look like a clowns tiny circus bike.

Bikes are the way we move around in this family so there has always been room in the budget for repairs at the bicycle repairman, Not having a car saves you a lot of money in this country. But I have also always made any repairs I knew how to... just to be thrifty - considering my lacking talent for making money it has been the best way for me to stay free and independent of a real job.

My wife's Finnish Jopo bike with a new saddle, bicycle chain and induction rear light.

I have been putting this off for a long time, but the hole in the wooden box of the Christiania bike and my daughters relentless pestering me to fix her a new bike, finally made me give in.



A hole in the wooden box of the Christiania bike. I will return with a report on that home builder project when I get the time to actually do it.




After more than ten years sturdy service the plywood of the Christiania bike is rooting away. I have decided to cut, paint and lacquer the new plywood. It would probably be easier to simply invest the 300$ in new prefabricated modules, but... I guess I got carried away when planning this.

I tend to prefer to by in local shops, but this time I choose a webshop as I had to order so many different things. I have about 20 bikeshops within a kilometer of my home, so I guess they have businesses that can survive without me. The place I bought from was a super efficient little shop in the Danish countryside, and they sent me all my orders so they were available next morning even though I ordered at 4 pm.



A set of break cables from the webshop in Jylland.

Repairing a bike is actually rather easy. All the components are standardised, and you can choose what you like and it almost always fit. There will maybe be a couple of different solutions but never a vendor lock-in. It is really just like a large Meccano set.

My daughters new bike. I replaced the tubes on both wheels.



The most expensive part of the project was battery free bike lights. But as bicycle lights are mandatory by law and these works for years (mine has worked for more than 5 years without maintenance) I consider them a good investment.

The brake cable on the front V-brakes had rusted into one brown clog, so I replaced the cable entirely.



Last but not least... pink handles. I didn't choose the colour.

The Reformist - A Female Imam




Sherin Khankan has been part of the public discussion in Denmark for quite some time - The project she has initiated together with some other Danish Muslims, to create a Mosque with female Imams, is a bit of an undertaking. Somehow you just have to admire the scope of what they try to accomplish.
