Music Monday! This week I wanted to show some small drum thing. The "main" drum in a drumkit, the snare (https://normans.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/article_attachments/206804323/Acoustic-Drums-Parts-Diagram.jpg), can be played in two main ways: with regular hits (with the tip of the stick hitting the center of the drum), or cross-stick (with the tip of the stick resting on the drum, and the butt hitting the rim; see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2KFrrKaoYU#t=1m19s). The second is much softer, and changing between the two can be used to make contrast in the song.
Music Monday! Buckle up for Lateralus by Tool:
This is an epic song that has had many covers, including one with cellos + drums (by Break of Reality: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYR4AjMAX7g) and one with a very prominent horn section (by Brass Against: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Dr6ZlcR6Fo). There are many things to notice about this song, but I'll focus on three: the Fibonacci series as an inspiration, polyrhythms, and the concept of _motif_.
Tengo un amigo gringo que renunció a aprender español porque lo considera dificilísimo. Me decía que nunca iba a ser capaz de darse a entender con nadie. En un centro comercial, yo le aposté $50 a que podía enseñarle a pedir la cena en 15 segundos. Aceptó. Le escribí algo en un papel e hicimos fila en un restaurante mexicano. Al llegar al frente le preguntaron qué quería. Yo le dije "Just read the words" :
- "Does - Stack- eat - those- can- free- hall- less"
Los $50 más fáciles de mi vida.

Gaming industry, overtime Show more
Considering the news about Rockstar's insane working hours, I feel oddly privileged about not having worked a single extra hour in the 2.5 years I've been working at Frostbite.
In fact, I was explicitly banned from working overtime once. My manager came to me and said "if you burn out helping this game team, it'll take you months to recover and other games will suffer. We're in this for the long run. Don't burn out"
(Also, psst! The Stockholm office is hiring!)
