The new album by Actress, “Karma & Desire”, is a winter masterpiece that puts every other producer out there at the amateur level.
I remember the foggy days of my good old London, listening to masterpieces like “Raven” and thinking there was no better music to describe the city, the chaos of the south bank, the solitude of a night bus, the darkness of some boroughs.
Actress is up there, together with Burial, Aphex Twin and Autechre. The rest, sorry to say, are beginners with big talent.
A colleague recommended us workrave (https://workrave.org). Nice and simple tool to remind you to take breaks.
OK, together with Craig. Maybe.
Alright so I just found the perfect word for foreigners to practice spanish pronunciation: “veces”
It has a progression that's hard to get right due to our lack of v sound, the classic c sound, and a very liquid and thin s. All together in a row.

Messed up with DICOM files yesterday. Quite cool to see slices of my own knee, although it was a bit of a shock to see the size of the screw holding my ACL. Used both dicomscope and aeskulap to open the images and an hex editor to dig in the metadata. Sooo cool.
Don't forget to do this with your own scans!
So we Europeans just basically live in deprecated/illegal timezones with CET/CEST. Just got to know that CEST is not supported per se in go: one has to use CET, which includes a flag for the DST shift in case it's needed. Makes sense, but I ate the facepalm anyway xD
Record of my week. Now yes, happy weekend all, embrace the beer.
One and a half months pretty much locked in a house with the exception of grocery shopping and some walks at the park.
Beers with friends happen online, exercise happens in my room, and so does my job. I hope this ends up soon - I'm actually afraid about everyone's jobs and situation here for the years to come, but there's nothing I can do beyond following the rules. On the positive side, I'll be forever grateful to my company, which allowed me to come back home to my family for some months.
