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.

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!
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.
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.
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.
However, as Linn fell asleep on the couch and as I tried to remember as much as I could about the first season I decided to instead go all the way back to the first episode. So I’ve just finished rewatching the very first episode of Westworld and oh my it’s a good show. So cleverly plotted!
Still some settings to tweak, but it looks promising.
🎞 Watched: Guardians of the Galaxy
My watching of this one was stretched over way to long time. It was only two sittings but almost two months apart. Why? Well, life got in the way in the most mundane ways.
Anyway, I liked this one. I don’t necessarily think it’s as great as some people seem to think it is but I like it. No, it’s not ”The Star Wars of this generation”.
Another Friday, another remote production.
I was way too optimistic about my schedule this week, so to compensate I had to go back to work tonight after the kids went to bed and record a video about one of our mixing consoles.
Today was in many ways the most average of average days at work. I did some administrative tasks, my weekly review, some scheduling for an upcoming course, some planning for stuff coming up later in the spring and held a short lecture.
After that I headed home and had an average afternoon with the kids and Linn.
Since nothing really stood out I also didn’t take any pictures today so I’m kind of bending my own rules today and I am posting a screen shot instead of a photo. Here’s my current home screen, something that I’m fiddling with quite a lot at the moment.
This weekend Linn’s parents and her grandma visited us. We had a good time and today they went home again. Also, Iris was at a birthday party for a friend and then all of us played out in the snow so there wasn’t really any time to take many pictures, so this photo of my Irish coffee will have to do. (Yes, that is indeed blue cream.)
Linn and I also finished the first (and so far only) season of You on Netflix.
