Samsung DVD HR753 region free 
Wednesday, August 22, 2007, 09:35 PM - Personal, English
Today I bought a harddisk/dvd recorder at the Mediamarkt. It can play a lot of DivX formats (not all), it can write on DVD-R and DVD-RW and has a 160 GB harddisk, which is good for 40 hours high quality recording (lower quality is rubbish).
The price was reasonable, but they asked 50 Euro if you want to have it region free. That's ridiculous. So I looked on the Internet and within five minutes I found the 'secret'.



1. Turn on player (without a DVD within)
2. Press Repeat (not Repeat A-B) 5 7 5 3 8 quickly
3. "2" appears on the TV
4. Press 9 for Region-Free
5. "9" appears on the TV
6. Open the tray and close it again

Somewhere else I found this in addition:
Region 1 use 2,9,3,3,4,9
Region 2 use 5,7,5,3,8,9
Region 3 use 5,6,7,3,2,9
Region 4 use 7,6,8,8,4,9
Region 5 use 5,3,8,1,4,9
Region 6 use 2,4,4,6,2,9

Skeleton Crew - Pandora's Music Box 1983 (US, noise/folk) 
Friday, August 17, 2007, 06:18 PM - Music, - US, English
Skeleton Crew was a project from ex-Henry Cow alternative guitarist Fred Frith and experimental Bay Area cellist and multi-instrumentalist Tom Cora.
Formed as a duo, the two (occasionally augmented by Zeena Parkins on keyboards and harp) toured extensively with a combination of experimental rock, noise, and folk music, even playing one concert of nothing but Eastern European folk tunes.
On stage, both musicians operated drums with their feet, while busying their hands with various stringed instruments, professional or homemade. Tape cut ups were also part of the performance.
Cora died in 1998. (all music)


2 3/4 songs, 8'32"

Jos van Rey (1945-heden, Remuunj) 
Wednesday, August 8, 2007, 09:05 AM - Personal, Nederlands
Zuiderlucht vroeg me een stukje voor hen te schrijven als Limburgse expat.
Nu heb ik dat altijd een merkwaardig fenomeen gevonden: iemands mening belangwekkend beschouwen vanwege het feit dat hij de provincie verlaten heeft.
In Roermond bestond zelfs een club van ex-buiten-limburg-gangers die zich er op voorstonden dat ze daar een poos hadden weten te overleven.
Maar de redactie was aardig, ze betalen (hoop ik tenminste) en ik kon eindelijk mijn twee verhaaltjes over Jos van Rey, van beroep VVD, kwijt.
Voor wie hem niet kent: bekijk de foto en trek je conclusies.
