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!

Between the “Artists” apps (musician’s apps), Apple’s one is much worse than either Bandcamp, Spotify or Amazon. I need to kill it basically on every launch before it’ll actually succeed to fetch any data. Pathetic, really.

The video for my new song (acoustic singer-songwriter/folk) will premiere on YouTube soon at youtube.com/watch?v=maCfwJ62m_.

I’m trying out Fastmail, to replace legacy Google Apps that I use for some of my domains. If you use(d) Fastmail, do you use their web / mobile apps or just connect your regular Mail.app or other client of choice?

Tonight I was recording vocals for a song that I started about a year and a half ago. I couldn’t sing it well then but believed that the song was worth better singing. Took an online course. Not finished but got much better. Tonight’s result is pretty good. Kid-approved, too 🎵

This kind of notification about Apple on LinkedIn cracks me up every time. Apple was mentioned in the news? No kidding?

🎬 Over the last month or so, I was occasionally watching The Hobbit trilogy over the lunch break. Today I’ve started season 3. And no, I’ve never watched them before. Shame on me.

monogamy -> polygamy
polyglot -> monoglot

I’m still surprised and confused by how the black dot inside the red close button in the Mac changes position from left to right when looking at it through different (left or right) edges of my glasses. This has something to do with the astigmatism lens, IIRC.

Basically, Ring Doorbell 3 is unusable (or only intermittently) in Winnipeg, MB for several months. It’s -26°C now and I had to remove the battery because it wouldn’t connect to WiFi anyway. Welp.

Frankly, I expected better math from a company that sells products to manage your finances.
I can assure you, Cashculator knows its maths. cashculator.app

I wonder if Apple is everr going to make a big change to macOS and called it macOS Next Step.

The new album by Nick Johnston, Young Language (music.apple.com/ca/album/young) is interesting, good writing. Nick is one of the more interesting guitarists in the last years, in my opinion. Melodic, interesting harmonies.

It looks that an album of a rather amateur quality by a “Dave Gilmour” is wrongly attributed to David Gilmour of Pink Floyd on Apple Music. Great job, Apple Music. Great job, Dave, whoever you are. What a fail.

Ooh. My Musicians on Micro.blog site appeared on @til. What a nice surprise. All musicians are welcome. I hope it brings another uptake to it. til.micro.blog/2021/11/15/musi

I was hoping macOS Big Sur 11.6.1 update would bring proper Safari tabs back, like Apple did in Monterey 12.0.1 but, alas, it didn’t happen.
