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!

Still stoked that my new song is now on Spotify and other music services. It’s positive and with catchy 🎸 lines. Listen and follow, if you like it for more songs I’m working on. open.spotify.com/track/3FLhwtV

See me play the 🎸solo of Seven Years and Seven Months. The song will be out on music platforms on June 30. The full song is available in other locations for now. I did later notice that i played the first phrase not as in the original 🤦🏻‍♂️. Well, I was playing live. 🎵 ... gorban.org/2020/06/26/see-me-p

With all the technology, delivery notifications are still a mystery.

After installing, the beta of macOS 11.0 (Big Sur) decided to show me notifications. It showed notification (from different apps) that went as far back as 2017. This is both impressive and disturbing at the same time. I didn’t know notifications persisted. And for so long.

Apple Service Status page is… unavailable. Where’s the status page for the status page

The song will also be available on other platforms (like Spotify/Apple Music) on June 30th and I hope to release a lyrics video before that. In the meantime, this Bandcamp link is the only place it’s available and you can listen to it there. 🎵🎸 jacobgorban.bandcamp.com/track

NEW MUSIC 🚨
My song “Seven Years and Seven Months” is out on Bandcamp now. The song is a light and bright pop-rock, with some jazzy harmony, dedicated to my daughter.
It’s also a good day to support musicians on the platform today, as they waive their fees this Friday. jacobgorban.bandcamp.com

🐕 Sparky got groomed yesterday. I could barely recognize him as I was picking him up. Luckily, he did recognize me, so I knew it was him ;)

A new original song is coming soon. It’s quite different from my regular writing, and it’s dedicated to my daughter.

It’s 🏳️‍🌈 month. If you use an iPhone and want to add some pride-related spice to your photos, our app Socialite, has free pride frames and stickers, among other free content. No cost at all. itunes.apple.com/app/socialite

My parody cover of John Lennon’s Imagine, called “Imagine, there’s no Facebook” has just reached 1000 views on YouTube, the second of my videos to do so.
Axel F cover is looking forward to be the third. youtu.be/WhoVyW3nMuI

I’m making real progress with studying Dream Theater’s Erotomania on 🎸. It’s crazy hard in some parts. I first started it maybe 20 years ago but I’m back at it now that my technique got better. How could Petrucci write these parts is beyond me. youtu.be/j0G5r-89GXc

It’s cool to see all the updates from Apple to the smaller devices. Now, what about the iMac and iMac Pro? These are the workhorses.

Ozzy Osborn’s today’s release sounds like a retrospective Swan Song. Also, an objectively good and moving song and video: youtube.com/watch?v=dBF78tA443
