Ok, let's try it. I first share is on Mastodon as an experiment.

Here's a parody cover song I recorded yesterday based on John Lennon's "Imagine" with modified lyrics about technology and social media.

Welcome to Mastodon!

My take on intro to "Since I've been loving you" by Led Zeppelin. A minute of pure joy.

Happy to get reviews like that for Trickster. Precisely what makes it so useful.

On the bright side: kids are back to school today.

UPS, last night: your package will be delivered tomorrow.

This morning: we incorrectly sorted your package. Delivery date unknown. 😤

Last night: two app updates sent to App Store review. Both reviewed with the hour. One rejected. Resubmitted rejected app.

This morning: resubmitted app is still waiting for review. 🤷‍♂️

The hardest part of getting back after a long vacation is sifting for days through all the photos, deciding if you like the JPEGs from the SLR or would prefer to edit their RAW files instead, then editing those, then tagging, then… more and more and then seeing them all just once because there’s no time to look at photos.

This evening I relaxed on / by the river a bit with some friends. Nice weather. Beautiful nature.

A new music video is up!
This time a cover ELP classic, "From the beginning", with an extended guitar solo.

Today's evening was spent on:
1. Exporting sound tracks from old recordings of my band.
2. Recording a solo for my cover of ELP's "In the beginning". It took many takes and it's still only 90% perfect, but that'll do. Next is to mix it and finish the video. So much work. So much fun.

Exporting music from my band before 2001. Lucky I kept some of the software and it still can run. Yes, that’s Windows 7 on A MacBook Pro from 2010. I plan to see if I can remix and remaster some of it.

Randy Bachman (of Guess Who and BTO fame) in an interview (youtu.be/33Q5VOFMH48?t=14m19s): “If you know how many guitars you have in your collection, you don't have enough”.

I know how many guitars I have.

Back home from an amazing performance by Marbin, a jazz-rock fusion band. So much talent on stage. Lots of fun, too. Don’t miss them when they’re in your city. I’m a life-long fan now. Get a taste at instagram.com/p/Bm-BsEpFf50/ and then go find them on YouTube for some good time.

Also, there were about 30 people watching, in a small venue. So it was an awesome experience: close view, good sound, some chat before and I after. And I bought the T-shirt.

They say: “The best camera is the one you have with you”.

So are guitars: the best is the one you can easily pick up and play.

OH: 16-yo: Instagram is like your resume (for other peers).

ICYMI: I recorded a parody song based on John Lennon's "Imagine" with modified lyrics about technology and social media. I call it "Imagine… there's no Facebook".
Would love to know what you think.

I finished reading Seth Godin's "The Dip" 📚 yesterday. Not that it's a new book but I've never read it. Now I'm thinking if my indie projects are in the "dip" or in the “cul-de-sac" curve. 🤔

Why are there so many new people joining today? I see them on .
