This is a cool callback in Ancient Bards’ latest album:
“The Alliance of the Kings” (2010), “Prelude”: “The story I’m about to tell you happened long ago, in a land far from here, but it’s not yet time for you to know about its genesis.”
“Origine” (2019), “Origine”: “Now it is time for you to know about its genesis.”

Oh, neat. I'd been contemplating whether my next camera should be the 5Ds or the 5Ds R (or, more likely, the successor of whichever one). Apparently this company uses the 5Ds R: https://www.7x7.com/this-hi-res-panorama-is-the-most-insane-pic-of-san-francisco-ever-trus-1787300627.html
So here's one that has already happened, of “They're Taking the Hobbits to Isengard”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQKE4I9H_J0
It's kinda meh actually; hopefully another orchestra will try to top it. (Acknowledging that good orchestral arrangements of electronic music are almost certainly Really Hard.)
There is also an “orchestral” version of the Nyan Cat music, which is not actually live (it's synthesized) but is still really good: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiKPgmN5jTg
Having just woken up from a nap, I was surprised to find what looked like a PlayStation 1 game on the TV's carousel.
Turns out that it's a new album (and one of iTunes's “Top Albums”), styled after the old PS1 game covers: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/0/04/Juice_Wrld_-_Death_Race_for_Love.png
I hope they made the actual CD do something cool when you put it into a PS1.
Apparently the “100CANON” folder name my camera uses means that the 10,000th photo (each one being named IMG_[four digits].cr2) gets stored in a new folder named “101CANON”.
I wonder what happens when you take your 10,000,000th photo. Do you get a “1000CANON” folder?
(Formatting the card does not reset the counter, so this wouldn't require a larger card than exists)
Hm. So 9g of coffee makes a strong and tasty cup, but it's a little too strong—I'm wired all day and my sleep schedule has been deteriorating.
Maybe I'll cut back to 7 or 8 grams, which is closer to the strength of the disposable pods. It'll be less tasty but it'll be nice to get proper sleep on a regular basis again.
Finally got over to TI and took photos of the City—but, I think, too late to get the light I wanted. Bay Bridge was pretty much a silhouette at 11 AM.
I need to show up at least a couple hours earlier—on a day as sunny as today—and see if I can't get the same scene better-lit.
I also wonder if I'd be better off waiting until summer.
TIL that Brian Blessed, Brian May (of Queen), and Weebl (of Weebl’s Stuff) collaborated on a protest song: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Save_the_Badger_Badger_Badger
Nice, here's a coffee scoop that fits into the My K-Cup filter basket, so you can load it up with coffee, put the filter basket over it, and flip it over with (theoretically) no mess. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3199614/
