I’ve gone down the rabbit hole of Hi-Res Audio, using a Fiio M9 and a Qobuz Studio subscription.

It’s been a journey that has brought back the sheer joy in listening to music again. I thought I had a lost my “producer’s ear” over the years, but it sounds like it’s still there!

I need to think of a name for a new drink…Disaronno mixed with the new Orange Vanilla Coke.

The name “iPhone XS” just sounds like a Las Vegas nightclub to me.

Ólafur Arnalds on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series

This is an absolutely beautiful performance. Also, the technology behind his instrument(s) is awesome!

Happiness is sitting in a warm conference room, trying to configure a piece of hardware, only to find that crew that did the cabling didn’t hook up any of the ports in the room.

Then, spending the next hour trying to get everything cabled and configured.

3 hours later…

Django Django on Morning Becomes Eclectic

An excellent interview and some great tunes from their new album, Marble Skies. Take a listen if you have a few minutes.

Today I learned of the art of Japanese Iced Coffee.

It’s the pour-over method, but you only use half the amount of water you’d normally use, replace it with ice, and pour the hot water over the grounds onto the ice.

It makes for an amazing fresh cup of iced coffee!

Spending the day selecting old B&W movies from the Internet Archive, such as Phantom of the Opera and Night of the Living Dead, isn’t a horrible way to spend a rainy Wednesday…

There is an electric car in space. Launched by a rocket with reused parts that landed back on earth by a billionaire who wants to colonize Mars.

We’re in peak 21st Century now, boys.

…and now, my favourite Christmas song.
