Legendary Roland TB-303 Computer Controlled Bass Line

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

Words should be unnecessary! This is without doubt a legendary piece of retro equipment, which deserves an absolute front row in my personal electronic collection! Never the less - I plan on selling my TB303 on eBay in near future!

The 303 synthesizer was introduced in the early 1980’s and production was stopped after just 18 months - allowing only 10.000 units to leave the Roland factories in Japan!

Don’t know how a TB-303 sounds? Check out “Phuture’s Acid Trax” from 1987 - one of the first (if not the first) acid house tracks to use the charecteristic 303 bass line.

Update: My 303 has now been sold! Before it was shipped to a collector in the UK, I created a “memorial” desktop image of the 303 together with a pair of late 1970’s Hosiden headphones - download the 1280×1024 pixel desktop image here

Original 1950’s vintage movie posters

Saturday, July 19th, 2008

I proudly present my collection of original Danish movie posters!

The collection consists of more than 100 different - all original, full size - colorful Danish movie posters from the period of 1950 to 1954.

All posters are the official Danish text versions of French, Spanish, Danish - but most of all popular American cinema titles like Tarzan, Raw Deal, Hong Kong, Come back, little Sheba - and many more!

A large amount of the posters have been drawn by the famous Danish Poster designer Aage Lundvald.
