this kind of talk about music has been going on since freakin socrates. every generation
thinks their music is “better” than the previous.
scientific studies tracking complexity” and “loudness” really tell us nothing about how and why
music is appreciated.
find me a scientific study that says “complex” and “quiet” music is intrinsically “better” than
“simple” and “loud” music.

what is true is more music is available to be heard than previously. judging the “quality”
of music based on what is “popular” is kind of silly. there’s shit tons of music out there; go find something you like.

There is a simple explanation for that based on psychology and physiology. We all seem to experience things on a much more deeper and emotional level as we were growing up as teens and young adults. These early years are usually thought of as the best part of our life cyle. So all the things associated with that time frame become “the best”. As we get older we remember those times as great (even if they actually weren’t great). We forget most of the bad times from our youth.

This is why people listen to their older music, try to buy back their older cars, etc… It makes them feel young again and feel good.

I can’t remember if somebody already gave the above explanation. Sorry if I’m repeating it.

Please add me for one light.

Questions:
*) Will the UI be open source and the firmware easily modifyable and flashable?
*) Any ideas on how much lumen this will put out for an extended period of time (compared to e.g. a D4)?

Of course. People have been using it a lot lately, this is just the first production light to come with it.

I hope to get it flashed on a light soon and make some videos on how to operate it and change it’s menu settings.

I would imagine the same as the D4. It’s mostly about how much heat the body of the light can shed. They are about the same size and have similar lumen output for the amp draw.

ToyKeeper probably knows the exact lumens. Keep in mind it varies depending on the ambient air temperature, how much air is blowing past it and whether your holding it or not. My rough guess would be about 700 lumen.

Over time, pop music has become more optimized toward being safe and generic. Because it’s pop music, and that’s kind of the point of the genre. It’s getting better at its job.

The larger music scene, though, has gotten a lot bigger and more complex. Some corners of it are dramatically simpler than older music, like the ambient drone scene. Some parts have gotten dramatically more complex than older music, like the mathcore scene. And in general, today’s music is harder to generalize about than in the past, because it’s so much more diverse.


Edit: On a related note, this is a shameless plug, but…

Here’s an example of today’s music. Like, literally today, since I finished and uploaded it less than 24 hours ago. I have been told it may be a bit too complicated, too many moving parts interacting. It’s kind of a bad habit. I’m not very good at “less is more”.

Anyway, I hope people like it. Smile

Your clip is actually a very good example of’80s synthpop. It’s upbeat and cheery. Gary Neumann would be proud. Good work!

Sorry, but there is probably not a Nichia version of the FW3A.
The poll for the led ended with HIs and Samsung LEDs. Please read through the first page of this thread.

But final LEDs are still not confirmed by Lumintop. It depends on what they can procure.

The one with the tapered ramp, prototype #2.
Surface isn’t choosen IMHO. I think there was tendency to grey anodising. But I am not shure.

I am waiting for the LED decision. If there are two to choose from I am afraid I must double my order.

Quite good, generally not even my preferred genre but I watched the whole thing, which says a lot for me and a music video lol.

More than 1400 interest here ,is this the biggest BLF project ?

I believe the GT went up to almost 1800 if I not mistaken…

Indeed, it was 1862.

The Q8 was a bit high IIRC and the X6 was even higher then that.

Still this is one of the biggest lights on BLF for sure.

Those numbers should be divided by the number of forum members at the time (when exactly?) of each project to better reflect the relative “popularity” of each.

In recent times, projects like the Q8 and the GT have attracted quite a lot of new members so now each new project has more exposure and thus faster growing interest lists.
