Welcome to Mastodon!

I got an Apple News notification that Toronto Raptors won the NBA championship. Congrats! I’m back to practicing guitar.

This is on YouTube since 2010 but I’ve just found this out with a help from my bandmate: Metallica-Enter Sandman (Smooth Jazz Version). He actually sent me Jazz version of Slayer’s Reign in Blood, with a solo you’ll recognize. Hilarious. Even though I didn’t know the original. 🎵 youtube.com/watch?v=OBmM79YadY

It’s never too late to learn how to play the solo to Stairway to Heaven. Not even at 11pm. ... gorban.org/2019/06/10/its-neve

I’ve just published my first post for @JustGoodMusic, about the band The Main Squeeze and their first album. justgoodmusic.philpin.com/2019

My test projects folder has subfolders going back to the summer of 2009, when I was working on Cashculator and ImageFramer 3. I tried building one of those. The error message is nostalgic: unable to find sdk ‘macosx10.5’. No kidding? But the code in the apps still runs.

With the new Mac Pro and Logic Pro soon to be released, I’m starting a new rock band called The Mac Pros. Or maybe the Cheesegraters.

Sparky is not impressed with the announcements from so far. No Memojis for dogs.

WWDC day. It’s like Christmas for Apple Developers. But you may end up hating some of the “presents”.

My coworking space just held a small “graduation” party for their first member, Tutorbright, who grew enough to go to their own space. It was great watching them grow and succeed over the last two years. launch1460.ca

🎵 This latest Dirty Loops music video starts on a pop side but then they blow the mind, especially with the keys and drum solos. So much energy in the video as well. Highly recommended. youtube.com/watch?v=r_GTgpdoCh

I love learning about human languages, especially etymology – where words come from. So I found this article about the word “lox”, and how it helped find origins of Proto-Indo-European language, illuminating. nautil.us/blog/the-english-wor

Today’s band rehearsal lasted for about 5 hours. One of the longer ones.
