It’s been a while since I posted anything about music in this blog, but today I felt like writing something about my favorite band of them all, Motörhead. More in particular, I’d want to write a bit about their last album entitled Bad Magic. It was released on August 28th in 2015, so it’s long overdue. This would be the band’s 22nd studio album, and I only came to realize later on that this would end up being Lemmy’s will more or less. The album is full of energy and fighting spirit, yet you also realize Lemmy is reminiscing about the life he led…
On Sunday January 28th 2024 Rock Café Leuven organises its first Record fair! So far we already have 6 sellers registered, which means we only have 4 spots left! The entire event is free of charge, also for sellers!
I’ll be bringing over 500 records which you can find here. In total, my collection recently surpassed the 2000 records mark, and of course there’s still so much more out there to discover!
I hope to meet you at Rock Cafe for a day of happy digging through plenty of boxes of vinyl!

It’s been a while since I posted news on this website, but times have been busy. After some setbacks in the past few years, about which I’ve written before or might still write more later, I’ve finally decided to pursue a new career path. While I’ve enjoyed my times at imec, I felt like it was time for a change of environment, some new challenge. I can proudly announce that I’ve updated my CV to reflect my start at Spectricity as senior characterization engineer. At Spectricity, the future camera of your smartphone is developed, and I will be involved in testing of these camera’s in our labs in Mechelen. These hyperspectral camera modules can see more colors than typical RGB camera’s that are common in today’s consumer electronics. Such camera’s enable a wealth of new applications in AR/VR, sensing, machine vision and many more! I look forward to the challenges ahead and will soon start my new job, after a few weeks of rest…

A spicy variation on a classic theme:Smoked salmon lasagne with white asparagusIn a mozarella and lime saucewith bacon and mushrooms… Introduction Some might say this is a bit of an exaggeration of weird fusion, but let me tell you, it’s not! When asparagus are in season, this is a classic I make nearly every year. A lasagne with smoked salmon and fresh asparagus, the white gold! You can go different in terms of vegetables, but I went for fresh Dille (must have with Salmon for me), red onions, mushrooms and I also decided to throw bacon in the mix. Just …
Next weekend I’ll join my parents in their Garage Sale in Lommel, where I’ll be offering a bunch of vinyl and CD’s, as you can see in the picture on the right. Obviously there will be a record player available to test vinyl and to maintain a fun atmosphere. The offer in terms of vinyl you can find at Record for Sale/Exchange. Next to that there will also be a wide selection of CD’s, both singles and albums at very reasonable prices (0,10 / 1 EUR). I will also have a selection of MetallicA bootlegs (live recordings and demo’s) up …
