We have a tree in our yard that, by some estimates could be 300 years old. Who knows if that is right. In the last big storm it dropped a limb as a warning shot to let us know who’s boss. I count 50-60 rings in the older growth area of this limb, no idea how many are in that white outer ring. This limb is older than me, maybe much older. Respect your elders.
One of the musicians in this band, Two Truths, grew up in my town. They just dropped this single https://twotruthsmusic.bandcamp.com/track/brushstrokes
The video is pretty good: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=pgNNjdJlgww&feature=youtu.be
I do the best I can to use privacy respecting services but, in the end, it’s important to remember that they are not your friend and act accordingly.
I’m mending fences with my neighbor. Literally.
Logs I use to line my back path came loose in the torrential rains from the last storm and took out part of his fence.
This poor guy bought a house in a valley just downhill from us and these summer storms dump two feet of water into his first floor. It’s a confluence of surface water from his uphill neighbors (me) and a poorly designed town storm sewer. I try to use berms to slow the water down on my property, but you can fight water.
@sconlan it’s a big gap in my musical education but, to be fair, my taste in music started with Def Leppard, Twisted Sister and Ratt. High school was NIN and Ministry. Now it’s Lamb of God but also Sasquatch and Red Fang. I think that stoner/doom metal has brought me back full circle to Steppenwolf, Iron Butterfly and Deep Purple. What’s old is new.
Apple pausing roll out of on-phone CSAM detection. Translation, “We deployed that with a bit too much fanfare. Next time quieter and buried in a mundane looking update.”
I bought my wife lawn tickets to Alanis Morisette for her birthday. Since we still like each other after all these years, she decided she wanted me to go with her. I’m wearing my Sasquatch work shirt in subtle protest. Garbage and Cat Power are opening, which could be good.
I’ve previously bought her tickets for Pink and Andy Grammer. I’ve slept in line for Dixie Chicks. She’s never once offered to go with me to Lamb of God or Meshuggah or Cannibal Corpse.
The other day I opened an invite to a virtual meeting and it was on Google Meet. It took me a minute to remember Google even had a Zoom alternative. There was time when every new Google project was expected to kill its competitors. “Don’t bother making it if Google could do it in a long weekend”. Now, I feel like all they’re good at is serving ads and licensing Android.
Just a reminder that, bats are just goth kids flipped upside down : https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=G9A8PFlqM4U
I like Twelve Foot Ninja but you can’t honestly think you can just hand over song writing to GPT-3 and nobody will notice…
