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!

Here is Sparky before and after grooming today.
Stickers and frames were added in Socialite. There’s a new Pet Parent sticker pack available in Socialite now. itunes.apple.com/app/socialite

🎵 A monthly reminder that you can support your favourite musical artists more by buying their music instead of streaming. If your artist has presence on bandcamp.com (search for their name), today is a good today to support them because Bandcamp waves fees today.

🐶 Sparky went to the groomer today after being last groomed before the winter. This a photo I took in the morning, before taking him in. Can’t wait to see what he’ll look like after that.

I’m not sure what song Biden and the team are studying but I’m 90% sure the next chord is C. Unless it’s Blues. Any guesses?

Released a cover of David Gilmour's solo on Another Brick in the Wall today: youtu.be/OLnZZzAYQdY

🎵 My latest song, Oh Dear World, will be aired tonight and tomorrow on Will Keenan’s show on @capemayradio 📻. Tune in online at 9pm EST at capemayradio.org. 🎸 Exciting. First time on terrerstrial radio.

Would Yesterday become a famous song, if Paul McCartney released it in his new album and not 50 years ago?

🎵My new 🎸 cover (Dream Theater’s Erotomania), with a short introduction of what it means to me, is about to be premiered on YouTube at youtube.com/watch?v=2FkCpuaP1c.

🚨New music video coming up. After 20 years, I can finally play the guitar parts in Dream Theater’s Erotomania, not perfectly but good enough to leave it behind me. It’s probably the most technical piece I’ve mastered yet. The video premiers Monday at 11:30EST. youtube.com/watch?v=2FkCpuaP1c

This British YouTuber released a new song, recorded in his home, in which he played all the instruments and sang all the vocals. If only he had a band of musicians around him, he could go places and become successful. Be sure to check it out. youtube.com/watch?v=2oSmP3GtOB

🎵 The “Radio Edit” of my latest track, “Oh Dear World”, is now available everywhere.
Melancholic rock meets progressive metal in the end. Links are here:

I’ve released a “radio edit” of my latest song, “Oh Dear World”. More than a shorter intro, I’ve tuned the vocals and remixed it for more clarity. Available now on Bandcamp and will be streaming in about 10 days.

Why did we call our dog Sparky and not… Barky?

Is it some kind of an amazing SEO hack by Amazon? A lookup on a price (at least in Euros) presents an ad from Amazon. 🤯

We finished watching “The Queen Gambit”. Enjoyed it a lot. As a former chess player, in my elementary school years, there was a lot to remember, while watching it, about the world of chess, which was quite fun for me. Great acting and decor.

Is there a way to disable the prompt to update to macOS Big Sur in Catalina System Preferences? I have a Mac that I don’t plan on updating anytime soon? I tried the following without success:
$ sudo softwareupdate –ignore “macOS Big Sur”
