There are alternatives to facts - Zu Fakten gibt es Alternativen #punchline #satire #pointe

"Alternative facts" is up to date since Trump. When people spend about 20 years of their lives sleeping, dreams are also an alternative reality. The thesis of parallel universes seems to be right.
"Alternative Fakten" ist seit Trump modern. Nachdem der Mensch rund 20 Jahre seines Lebens mit Schlafen verbringt, sind Träume auch alternative Realität. Die These von Parallell-Universen scheint zu stimmen.

#Musicproduction: Lostin70s releases Chord Grid Editor #freedownload

The goal of Lostin70s is to develop audio plugins with vintage spirit for musicians. Plugins can be used in post-production but they are conceived for live playing to replace hardware amplifier and effects at home or in home studio. The reduction of end to end delay is the key to the pleasure of playing !
The first plugin to come is a full tube amplifier, the ToneDeluxe, more plugins are coming soon, keep online ...
All plugins have been tested under "reaper" and under "garage band" on 64bit PC

#Photography: The Benefits of Shooting in Auto Mode

In street photography I always use auto mode. Depth of field, unsharpness, bookeh,… can be done later in post production.

I can still hear the words I was told when I bought my first DSLR ringing in my ears just as clearly as if I heard them this morning. “You have to learn to shoot in manual mode.” When I started to get serious about photography I had no idea what aperture, shutter, or ISO meant, and thought P meant Professional. I didn’t know what I was doing at all and because everyone seemed to say so, I dove right into YouTube tutorials and online articles about how to get away from the dreaded Auto Mode setting on my camera. After all, no serious photographer would be caught dead using Automatic…right?

Once upon a time, but not in Corea - Es war einmal nicht in Korea #punchline #satire #pointe

Korean fairy tales do not start with "Once upon a time ..." but with "When tigers were smoking pipe ...". Interesting because tobacco was only known in America. But maybe the tiger smoked other herb.
Koreanische Märchen beginnen nicht mit "Es war einmal…" sondern mit "Als die Tiger noch Pfeife rauchten…". Interessant deswegen, weil Tabak nur in Amerika bekannt war. Aber vielleicht rauchten die Tiger anderes Kraut.
