I had totally forgotten that not only is Pokémon Go really fun, it’s also incredibly addictive.

🎞 Watched: True Detective – The Long Bright Dark

Linn and I have been wanting to find a new show that we can both get into and this one seems very promising.

Great acting by McConaughey and Harrelson and nice chemistry between them. Also very nice work by the make-up department.

📖 Read ”Kvinnan på tåget” by Paula Hawkins

Judging by the reviews on GoodReads, this is a really divisive book. Either people love it or they hate it. To me it was quite middle of the road. I watched the movie a few years ago and liked it and the book was okay.

I mainly have two problems with it.

  1. The characters are unlikeable. All of them. The closest I cqme to caring about either of them is that I pity Rachel.

  2. It’s too long. If it was shortened by about 20% all the necessary points in it could still be hit, but it would be a quicker read.

And lastly, I don’t get why this gets compared to Gone Girl.

🎞 Watched: Lyckligare kan ingen vara (2018)

I watched this one yesterday with Linn. Seems like it was quite some time ago that we actually managed to get the kids to bed on time and watch something together. So the experience of watching the movie was great. The movie as a movie, was not.

Want to watch a Swedish movie about a well-known Swedish person to celebrate National Day? 🇸🇪

I highly recommend Borg or Borg vs McEnroe as it apparently is known internationally, about tennis player Björn Borg.

Why so happy about Sweden 🇸🇪, all of a sudden?

Mostly I think it’s superficial things that make me appreciate it right now, and thereby also think about the truly great things as well.

Superficial things like that summer is here. That it’s 30 deg C. That I led my final seminar for the school year yesterday. That my kids are happy and playing in the kiddy pool. That it is my beautiful house, and my beautiful wife. (Well technically my fiancé.)

Just as I decided to skip the opening credits on Westworld tonight, they pulled the rug from under my feet and featured a pre credits scene.

Well played, Westworld. Well played.

Also, knowing that the computer is doing a bunch of work that I would otherwise be forced to do manually is so satisfying.

I feel like such a 1337 h4x0r when the stars align and all my workflows, Compressor droplets and various other things works in such a way that I’m able to do a task in mere seconds that I know my colleagues would spend multiple minuts doing.

🔖 Bookmarked Thread by @Cruftbox: ”Finally, I can tweet knowledgeably on a topic, the new Mac Pro & display. I help oversee 175+ Macs used for professional video editing, […]”

Great summary of who the new Mac Pro is for and why.

I tend to get so frustrated when these kinds of topics comes up on atp and similar podcasts. There’s a whole world of pro audio and video with people who desperately wants a Mac that they can stick PCI cards an similar things in, and companies willing to make and sell those cards. That world has been trying to get by using worthless and expensive piece-of shit Thunderbolt-PCIe enclosures, or changing there stuff to use Thunderbolt instead of PCI for the past couple of years.

Take a look at BlackMagic Design, or Aja, or Avid for instance.

Not only is it still in use, it remains the best way to handle licenses in the kind of production environment where these computers power will be put to use.

Finished my rewatch of the first season of Westworld tonight and loved it just as much as the first time. With hindsight, so many of the twists and turns are so clearly layed our before the view.

Tomorrow it’s on to season two!

🔖 Read ”En sån som du”, av Gillian Flynn

Loved this one, as I’ve done with every other of Gillian Flynn’s books. She’s probably my current favorite writer.

Mulholland Drive movie poster

🎞 Earlier this week I watched Mulholland Drive and now I can’t stop thinking about it. What was it that I saw? What did it mean? And why was I so moved by it?

I’m planning to watch it again soon. Also, I read this great analysis of the movie by Film Crit Hulk Smash.

Analog(ue) #157: I Just Want People to Like My Stuff

I tried Vignette briefly yesterday and this was the problem for me. It’s not the fault of the app. Seems like a nice app but not for me, given what my contact list looks like.

With that said, the way the in app purchase is setup is great. It found very few photos for me, I figured it wasn’t for me and because it doesn’t charge me money until I want to save the contacts, I hadn’t lost a dime.

I almost got the HTC Vive working as a video slave for the FB360 VR/Ambisonics tools, but there’s something very weird about the motion tracking of the audio.

325: Relive Your Calculator-Watch Dreams — Accidental Tech Podcast — Overcast

Please Apple, please don’t “update” Mail like you updated QuickTime, iPhoto or Final Cut. Mail works perfectly fine and doesn’t need to have half its functions removed in the name of progress.

325: Relive Your Calculator-Watch Dreams

I am one of the people who might actually search for a simpler reminders app if apple updates theirs.

Reminders really only has one function to me and that it to be a simple grocery list. It’s super simple but also incredibly important. Important enough to earn it a permanent spot on my home screen.

Tonight seemed like a good time to try out Overcasts new clip sharing functionality and this clip from Upgrade #244 seemed like a good one to share, since I have similar feelings to Jason.

A very well-deserved drink

After four days straight teaching in the tv studio at work, and one full day of teaching post production for tv news prior to that, and on top of that the VR-project, I certainly deserve this old fashioned.

I’m working on a spatial audio mix for a VR/360 video. A fun project but I’m constantly reminded of how immature the tools are and how much of my time is spent fiddling with the setup rather than mixing.

But then again, fiddling with the tools is hard to do and I’m good at it so it is at least part of the reason why I get paid for doing this.
