This was from my final exam last year. Yes, really. Oh, how I miss first year at university...

My summer time playlist is named after this song.

Another favorite from the playlist. Not necessarily a summer time tune, but it got that vibe.

Oh, and this one is a bit newer. Allt grönt = All green.

Long term consumer-grade data storage could really improve a lot. I recently tried to play back a few CDs with backups from many years back, most of them didn't work. What's the best way to store data long term if you don't want to give it up to Google, Dropbox etc?

I'm still not sure how I feel about True Detective. On the one hand, it's beautifully filmed and the dialogue and relationship between Rust and Marty has a lot of depth. But the rest of the characters in the show feels so... shallow. Especially the female characters feels either like caricatures with no depth or just "beautiful corpses". Disappointing and the contrast is huge compared to the main characters.

Other than True Detective I've been watching the first season of The Fall, which I enjoyed.

I haven't really watched a lot of television shows for the last few years but at the moment I'm following Hannibal, Silicon Valley, Fargo, Game of Thrones and Orphan Black.

Movies I've recently watched and enjoyed: Grizzly Man, I am Curious (Yellow) and In Bruges.

When I was in India I was gonna go for one of those 10-day meditate-in-silence courses, but the night before I got offered to do voice-dubbing for a Tamil movie filmed in Paris, which I went for instead.

I'm not sure where I was going with this anecdote, other than to say my priorities are odd and I still haven't meditated in silence for 10 days.

The guy behind it seems to think so too:

    “Most of people’s meals are forgotten,” he told me. He imagines that, in the future, “we’ll see a separation between our meals for utility and function, and our meals for experience and socialization.” Soylent isn’t coming for our Sunday potlucks. It’s coming for our frozen quesadillas.

Personally I enjoy both cooking and eating good nutritious food, but I can see it has application for some people and situations. What makes is different from McDonalds etc? It doesn't even pretend to be "food" as we know it.

I must have missed this story completely, but it was an interesting read. Reminded me of the episode of House of Cards with the rumors about the nomination for Secretary of State.
