So, #scificlub on Friday? I forgot again.
So far I'm having a blast at the new job. Suddenly everything is comfortable and the stress is gone. I'm pretty happy about that.
I've also been having fun messing around with some mini volca synthesizers that I got recently as a gift. I'll post some videos once I figure out how.
I agree and I actually grazed right over that point when I read the story without really digesting the implication. I also find it a bit questionable if that's really true of bonsai. In a general sense, I do like the bonsai metaphor though. I find it interesting that this seems to be the focal point of the story but has nuts to do with sci-fi, in a Hugo winner.
I realize everyone's probably still tied up with holiday stuff. We'll take it easy until everyone's back in the swing of stuff.
I love that this lists all the reasons I hate those things. It's one of those devices that annoys you by the virtue of it being clearly poorly designed, rather than by the actual inconvenience of it. Why does the screen change so many times when nothing changes? Why is the error sound the same as the success sound? I mean, holy crap.
This weekend I reconnected with a drummer from an old band and we jammed out some ideas for an atmospheric bass-heavy music. I'm actually pretty excited about seeing what we can do with it. I need to learn how to use my little synth unit now and come up with some stuff to go with it.
Also calculated the driving route I take to go to practice with my existing band when picking up people to carpool. 100 miles. Twice a week.
