Further testing

Further testing

Apologies if this crops up more than once in your RSS feed, FB timeline, Twitter, whatevs. Testing, innit. We are in beta. Maybe late alpha. A P.OC.(alypse).

Think I might have cracked this posting from mobile thing though... an Apple Shortcut to choose a photo,  pipe it to Lightroom with B&W preset engaged for cropping, then back to the Shortcuts app to cache it to the photo roll and pass it to the content wotsit along with some weather/location stuff. 

This has come about because I had had a notion regarding writing something every day in May just to get myself back into the habit, but as usual it’s taken me two lunch breaks just to get the nerdy bits working. It worked for getting FSOD back up and running so it can work for the other sites too.

As you were. Although, fair warning, next thing on the TODO list is the video pipeline. Mwah ha ha, etc.

Studio clearout
I’ve been hoarding gear for twenty years and have completely run out of space. For the next few months I’m going to be chucking some odds and sods on eBay. The occasional guitar, some synths, a shed load of FX pedals and a couple of slices of Looptron history...

End of days for Daredevil
Marvel and Netflix have rammed the billy club of cancellation through Daredevil’s skull. This is no bad thing.

Acton Stations
Made a little timelapse film using my iPhone and the top deck of a surprisingly empty 207 bus from Shepherd's Bush to Acton. I'm teaching myself Final Cut Pro using my typical "learn by doing” method. As such, I have discovered my default approach to editing video is the same as playing the guitar. USE ALL THE PLUGINS.

Anti-social networking
Sell your eyeballs direct!

Radioactive Love (Rig Mk2 Demo)
New(ish) song, first successful(ish) run through on a rainy Tuesday lunchtime. Ableton is doing patch switching in Guitar Rig AND the loop triggers as part of the scene changes so only one pedal is required to drive this. It's the future people. 

Planned Obsolescence
FFS. Google have now started putting banners in Inbox (my mail app of choice) to remind everyone that they're killing Inbox next March, something I'd be studiously ignoring since they announced it back in September. I actually wish they hadn’t told me at all because my OCD will be spending the next 6 months evaluating Inbox replacements and rebuilding my "workflow" in them (which mainly consists of repeatedly snoozing mails until I HAVE to deal with them) before I inevitably give up and just revert to using Gmail like they want me to. 

Twenty years ago today.
It had been fifteen years seen the hero beat up his father so badly the old man died from his wounds. Fifteen years since we watched a group of terrorists enlist the help of the Care Bears to slaughter thousands of unwitting civil servants and proceed to overthrow the closest thing to a strong and stable government the galaxy had seen in millenia.
