Light your slow match, knap your flint, of course be sure to keep your powder dry, and for supplemental pics and info be sure to visit Gordon’s blog.
This week on Nothing Important Happened Today, Petter and Breki sit down to talk about their life philosophies. What kinds of things shape their thoughts and actions in their day to day lives, and how have their respective life philosophies shaped them into the men they are today?

FM has a superior quality to AM radio, but despite being invented in the 1930s, it didn’t become popular for 35 years – long after the inventor was dead. Today we learn why.
His name was Edwin Howard Armstrong, an American electrical engineer and inventor. He was the holder of 42 patents and the winner of numerous awards including the first Medal of Honor awarded by the Institute of Radio Engineers, the French Legion of Honor, the Franklin Medal and the Edison Medal.
What he is known best for was the invention of frequency modulation radio, better known as FM. Some say that his inventions that make modern radio, TV and most all other communications, possible. Unfortunately he began a battle with the RCA Corporation that would cost him everything! It is the story of a naïve, idealistic inventor who refused to compromise and, in the end, became a victim to his own stubbornness.

Spring is finally here, which means Breki gets his annual visit from Scott Johnson and Brian Ibbot to talk about the big movie of the season.
