Preparing the headsets for our VR exhibition.
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.
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.
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.
And now the second screen is done as well.
The second summer project, privacy screens for the deck, is halfway done. Working on a second one for the other side of the deck as well.
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.
I highly recommend Borg or Borg vs McEnroe as it apparently is known internationally, about tennis player Björn Borg.
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.)
Well played, Westworld. Well played.
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.

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.
Tomorrow it’s on to season two!
Loved this one, as I’ve done with every other of Gillian Flynn’s books. She’s probably my current favorite writer.
Walls for the garbage cans, the first of many projects this summer is completed.
The unexpected thing is that getting a house has actually made enjoy these kind of projects. I’d never thought that would happen.
🎞 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.
Incredibly useful! ffmpeg and a bit of command line experience is super useful when dealing with video.
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.
🎞 Watched: Thor: Ragnarok
I totally forgot to write about it when I watched Ragnarok some time ago. Anyway, I loved it. My favourite movie in the MCU so far.
This sounds like such a great feature, and one I’ve been wanting since micro.blog first launched.
Keep up the good work Manton!
I’m setting up a simplified microphone shoot-out to teach my students about the Web Audio Evaluation Tool tomorrow.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Really weird spring weather in Sweden.
