Maths with Garfield

At the moment I am still reading the collection books of all Garfield newspaper strips. One of the last books was 1986 – 1988. On October 25th 1986 this little strip was released.

Well, it sort of challenged me! I wanted to know, how many hours of every day he was awake in this 8 years. So I started thinking. He was alive 8 years, that is 70,080 hours. He was awake 2 years, that’s 17,520 hours… I calculated and calculated and in the end I had a calculation that looked a little bit like this. In fact my sheet looks much more messy, I did this one in Excel.

So he was awake about 6 hours a day. Of course I didn‘t watched the leap years. But I was proud of myself. I had a mathematical problem and solved it in a smart way… well… Suddenly I noticed that I did nothing else than dividing 2 : 8. It has the same solution, 0.25. All this effort just for something I could have much easier. At least it kept me awake for 10 minutes… darn…

New Song at 8BC „Alter Ego“

Some months ago, Naomi Sample and his band started a remix-project. I wanted to remix one of their songs and even did a short melody line… but eventually forgot about that whole thing. Some time later, it must have been this summer, I found that melody line among my unfinished tracks and started working with it. I made a simple bassline, some real basic beats and some synths but everything felt incomplete and naked. So I asked a friend of mine (FoX) to add some guitar sound to it. I was worried because the song already was far away from every chipmusic standard I set up for myself so far. It turned out to be very electronically even though the kickdrum and the bassline were chip. But I thought, why not make some more song in a less „chippy“ way??? So here it is, „Alter Ego“. Have fun.


Credits for the first melody go to Naomi Sample and the Go-Go-Ghosts and their song „Krach“
