Staring at the Sun

Of course I’m not staring at the sun, that’s dangerous and could damage your eye sight. Now I’ve said it, but there is no need for the stupid amongst you to go outside and see if it’s actually true. My own eyes are bad enough as it is, mainly because I was born with sub par eye sight, but I guess years if staring at computer screens has also taken its toll.

Then why am I’m referring to the sun? The reason why I’m rambling on about the sun is that yesterday we saw the first real hot summer day here in Oslo - at least the first one I’ve noticed. Despite being a nerd, I like the sun - since it’s one of the main reason we’re able to stay alive and stuff - so I took the opportunity to take a walk downtown to buy something we all need from time to time: New socks. Exciting!

But I also spent a little money on a little something I’ve been meaning to get for a long, long time. Over the three last years, I’ve been slowly buying speakers for my 5.1 surround system. First two great Dali Blue 5005 front speakers, then two budget Proson rear speakers, a Dali Concept Center and now my surround system is finally complete with a marvelous Dali Concept Sub. It’s really a great piece of Danish engineering - you can’t really tell it’s there until you turn it off and a lot of the dynamics in the sound suddenly disappears. It’s present in the audio without dominating it, but it’s still able to deliver that extra “omph” when necessary.

No, I have no idea what I’m talking about, but I like to pretend I do.
