Some huge things found recently

My new idol is Terunofuji. And now Yokozuna wannabe. How should I start? Is there any other Yokozuna by here to guide me? I've started to eat mango sticky rice if that helps to increase my weight x2.

Testing new papers


Paper is key. From more important to less: Paper - ink - pen.

Still happy with my dear vergé paper but I'm open to options. Somehow the paper has shown feathering a couple of times. First time it happened was traveling in Vietnam with hot temperatures and humidity. I tried to reproduce those conditions at home but paper worked so well even under the most extreme tests.

So I'm quite sure what caused that feathering: Lignen, the "glue" which joins the fibers together, inside paper is gone or damaged. But I have no idea why that happens only sometimes.

I'm looking for a cream paper with texture, about 100m/m2.

Anyways it's fun trying new things. And more papers to come soon. I will post my conclusions.

Useful tools which can be kept inside the notebook


Many people ask me about how I do such straight text lines and what template I use. I don’t think it’s something special, but maybe it’s useful for somebody so here it is.

Very simple: All I need can be hold in the rear part of my notebook. From top: paper template for small writing, drier paper, notebook, ruler, plastic template for regular writing, foam and a card (credit card style).

If paper is not too thick you can just pace a paper template behind the page. In my case it doesn’t work so I made a plastic template from a folder separator. This is very lived already and definitely I need to do a new one 🤔 The pitch is important. For my writing I use 3.2mm separation between lines. Changing the pitch a little bit changes a lot the number of lines in a page. I tried from 4 to 3.4 before but 3.2 is the optimum looking for my kind of writing and pen.

3 blocks of foam helps to hold the hand and writer near the edges. It has 3 highs and it’s super light for travelling.

A small credit card is very useful as a ruler, much better than a big ruler.

A video about this can be found here.

The incredible case of detective Zero Bananas

 

During his career as detective he solved zero cases. Cero, null, 0, zero bananas. Ratio 0.0. The worst detective ever. It’s not laziness or whatever. He always puts all his energy on it but not results. However his agenda is always full.

There are many cases which require Zero Bananas detectivesque job: Couples who suspect are being cheated but don’t really want to know it or cases which require the thief is not found (specially if the thief is in charge of the investigation). So… everybody is happy!

In his spare time he takes care of the garden. Relaxing life.


Kinds of Income

The way to generate money could be complex and confusing for some humans. The reality is simple if you consider some key points before choosing your kind of income: Is it scalable? Get up early mandatory? (Avoid!) Is it passive income? And the most important: Is it compatible with a poetic life? 

The ultimate goal is the cat. No income needed. It gets energy from the Sun. Well...

Cyberpunk 2077 new photos


One year after the launching of the game I've explored Night City again. It made my mind exploding every time. What a masterpiece of design. Every here and there is full of exquisite atmosphere. How can this place be even possible to be created?

And I used it not only as a video game but as a tool: A place to explore and take photos. I strongly feel we are in the first steps of virtualization and soon these now called "video games" will be the door to traveling to existing places and also to unknown and fantasy places with extra experiences.

I created a Flickr album to share those photos in a better way. Click here to access. Welcome.



And here I post some of them:
