Swearing, Hamilton (-) Show more
Holy shit the whole Hamilton thing bores me to fucking tears.
I couldn't even stand five minutes of a video of one of my favourite music YouTubers talking about it
Alternatively, you could leave a favorable review of one of my games or music albums. Either is acceptable.
I got a new keyboard for mastodon.
Just got a tattoo 😍 Going to clean it for the first time 😀
Back from Henry Rollins vacation slides. Amazing talk. Amazing speaker. Amazing human being.
Hard to believe that the lead singer of Black Flag grew up to have that much damn compassion for everyone.
If Rollins comes to your town, see him. Listen. He can make your life better by simultaneously breaking your heart and making you laugh.
I'm not sure if people have seen some problem I haven't seen, but this IndieGoGo project has only 4 backers 😟
They are lovely handmade dolls. Not cheap, but not that expensive either. And the project supports kids education in Vietnam 😕
I hope they get some more supporters in the 5 days they have left 💔
And for a more "real example", see this performance of On Green Dolphin Street, the only song I can think of that has both straight (non-swing) and swing parts. Notice how the start is latin (straight), then at 0:36 they start swinging. Throughout the song they will keep changing back and forth: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=afdjNq_TKVI
Music Monday! This week we'll have a look at swing. So, what is it? Apart from a dance and a sexual practice, it's to warp timing, making some notes longer, some shorter. It's common in jazz, esp. 30s and 40s. The video below shows a demo of a program which can convert any song to swing (in this case, Sweet Child of Mine, which sounds hilarious). See the visual representation in the video: purple & green become longer in swing, red & yellow shorter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lBP-KvujRY

Can't remember who shared it (I think it was here on Masto but cannot find it now), but this long article by danah boyd about journalism and media manipulation is really good!
FWIW I prefer to use example.com to check my internet connection, both because it's small and because it only runs HTTP (not HTTPS), so it's good for logging in to captive portals (e.g. on hotel wifi).
My new favourite genre is reaction videos to Jinjer's "Pisces", eg.
And the song is killer, of course (DAT voice, DOSE rhythm changes).
Programmer (esp. into functional languages), amateur drummer and songwriter.
