Attended an entertaining night of Crazy P beats and Danielle doing her loop station antics. Turns out that me and my smartphone are pretty good at borrowing the light of pro flash units in the surrounding area.

The revolution will not be televised

This is part 1/6 of a BBC 4 production about Gil Scott-Heron from 2003, just before he was caught and charged with posession of a controlled substance.

I got to know Gil Scott-Heron because of Masta Ace. In 1991, Masta Ace sampled The Revolution Will Not Be Televised for his track Take a Look Around - a remake of the message carried in the original track. Gil Scott-Heron never quite understood how he was being credited with influencing hiphop, and he didn't care much for the label protorapper, which the media liked to imbue him with.

Next week, on the 27th of May, it's a year since he passed away. Enjoy the documentary.

Motor is a street art/graffiti painter from Copenhagen, now living in East London. This last weekend she was painting in Stockwell, and I went to take a few photos, and wish her a Happy New Year.

I hope to tag along to more painting sessions in 2012 with her and Solo One.

This guy is a genius, not only a great musician, but a musician who has completely reshaped the premises of collaborative music in the 21st century. A couple of years back he did the Thru You project, which I recommend you check out, if you haven't already seen it.

I laughed, I cried, I stood up and cheered. This guy makes Hunter Thompson look like Maria von Trapp.

High fuckin five.





Central Point photo opp

Had the pleasure of having breakfast atop Central Point a couple of weeks back, and the views were pretty excellent, even though the weather was a bit cloudy.

This is a shot looking east, with the Gurkin, The Shard, and Renzo Piano's newly build Central Saint Giles in the front.

I love this idea, would be fun to do in a lot of different countries and cities. My favorite is the guy that listens to Lollipop by Lil Wayne around the 2.05 mark, he reminds me so much of the opening scene in Office Space.

Using the O2 Wireless Box II as a bridge

Sun, 05 Jun 2011 09:39:01 -0700

When I moved to London and picked a company for my internet connection, I went with O2 as I already had my mobile contract with them, so figured it would come with a little discount if I went with their broadband package as well. It did, so that was all well and good.

The only problem was, that my connection is a modem solution, and not a cable solution, as there's no cable coverage in my area, I guess. The problem with this is, that I like to use my own router, because you can usually make them do more tricks than the one made available by the telco.

I have a Linksys WRT54GL router, which you can hack to bits, and that's why I got it. There are number of great open source firmwares out there for this router, including dd-wrt, tomato, and OpenWrt. I like a good and memorable name, so I went with tomato.

O2 supplies their ADSL broadband customers with a wireless router, the O2 Wireless Box II, connected directly to the wall, to get the ADSL connection. This means there is no modem in between, to which you can connect your router, and be a happier geek.

Except, there is.

The trick is to setup the O2 Wireless II box to function as a bridge, and to do that, you need to do some CLI-gymnastics in a telnet prompt, but if you are up for the task, it actually works!

I found Luke's instructions over on Nothing But Reboots to be of great help in this regard. I followed them point by point, and I now have my O2 Wireless Box II working as a bridge to my WRT54GL running tomato. The only difference is, that O2 seems to have changed the password for the SuperUser account to be the serial number of your O2 box, which doubtlessly makes it less insecure than before.

Happy days, and a more stable wireless experience.
