All things me.

I’m probably spending at most a forth of the time watching movies that I do watching Red Letter Media’s reviews of movies. Sometimes movies I haven’t even seen.

@bix Yes, by HBO I off course meant HBO Nordic. Sorry about any confusion.

Good morning. [turns on mic] Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. [pauses] Mankind. That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice: We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

– President Whitmore, Independence Day (1996)

Damn the torpedoes. Allow me to present, a work in progress – and absolutely not finished, a new look of my blog.

Thanks Aaron. So far I’m happy with it, though I think I realised what I compromised on by buying such a comparatively cheap polyphonic synth (as compared to say a Prophet 12 or something). I would like a whole bunch more modulation, both sources and destinations.

My other synth is a DSi MoPho, which is monophonic and its modulation matrix is annoying to program but gloriously flexibel.

So far I don’t have any Volcas but several of those where on the table for me when I decided on which synth to buy. The Volca Modular har more of a Buchla approach to things, rather than a Moog style approach to things, right?

@odd That sounds like a reasonable approach to things.

@petebrown and @macgenie I see, thanks! I’ve never used any kind of pressure cooker so this was new to me. Reading the list of the things the InstantPot can do makes me want one.

@macgenie Same here, but also with the sense of annoyance over all these people – not just Billy – who want to be ”the next Steve Jobs” or who want to make their company ”the Über of [insert whatever]”. So annoyance over start-up culture in general, I guess.

@furstenberg You are kind of selling me on the director’s comments. So far I don’t think I’ve ever watched a movie with the director’s commentary track, but maybe this will be the first. Thanks!
