🍿 Watched American Valhalla, 2017 - ★★½

When Iggy Pop was in Medellin a few years ago and I couldn't go I thought my one chance to see the legend had passed me by. I was wrong, I got to see Iggy last weekend. During the concert he said “I am old and probably gonna go soon” and that might be true, but man, at 75 he stills rocks.

Being on an Iggy high, I watched this. It documents the making of Post Pop Depression, a great collaboration album from the man and Joshua Homme, who is also directing here. Good watch for fans.

Never posted much on Twitter but this is a huge argument to finally getting rid of it. It’s been a while since I even logged in. I do follow my Timeline via RSS and Brid.gy does its thing crossposting… but with these numbers it’s like shouting into a void.

Loving the improvements, Jan-Lukas. I have already imported my Notes and Articles into my instance, knowing that eventually GoBlog will be my home.

Before reaching out to you I wrote an article on how there’s no easy to install IndieWeb-ready blogging system, but there is, so I had to scrap it. Thank you for discouraging my blogging 🙃

I’ve tried to get into podcasts but I’ve found myself saying “this could’ve been a blog post” so many times before. A 2 minute voice note on WhatsApp is annoying, what can one expect from a 3-hour long episode?! If the medium doesn’t add value to the content, what’s the point?

“I’m trying out Trilium Notes for the last few days and gotta say it’s the closest thing to Notion I’ve seen, but it’s also Free software, which is amazing. The learning curve is somewhat off-putting and that keeps it from being a real and exciting alternative, but if I manage to get used I’ll probably stay.”

Officially a proud Trilium Notes user.

I got invited for drinks at a friend’s on Friday and the whole night she played nothing but Radio Paradise. I’ve played nothing but their stream ever since. I was most pleased to find out they use only open-source software and have built an amazing community on their own website.

2022 · psych rock · ★★★

Kikagaku Moyo bid farewell to the world on a high note with their final album. Monaka and Gomugomu are pure dance-floor bliss.

Thank you, Japanase psych rock gurus for 10 years of great music and specially for Forest of Lost Children, which since its release and to this day I consider one of the best albums of the past decade.

I noticed recently that Together isn’t updating some of my feeds. I’m giving FreshRSS a try with NetNewsWire (iOS) and Fluent (Linux), but I wonder if the problem is Aperture’s fault or something from Together? Any ideas what’s happening @aaronpk @grantcodes?
