Morning jams at the office. They can make me show up and work, but they can't make me do it quietly.
A thousand thanks to the wonderful Suse B. for providing the lead vocals on "Rise".
And thanks to everyone who voted for "Rise". It is greatly appreciated :)

So my 11yo is playing Roblox with his friends
except he's just playing guitar and singing while his character sits there
and they're all fine with this.
He was working his way through "Country Roads" (John Denver) a minute ago
He has a fine singing voice and a good sense of pitch
but only on his own terms
Like this is the only setting in which he sings willingly
(for (mostly) strangers on the internet)
There's probably a lesson here somewhere.
"#GuitarML develops audio plugins that use neural networks and machine learning to emulate analog effects and amps. This video demos two GuitarML plugins that have been ported to #MODEP to run on the DIY pedal, #Pi-Stomp, with the MOD virtual pedalboard. "
I really can't say enough nice things about the #piStomp kit. It was way easier to put together than the radio kits I'd been working on, the documentation was great, and the creator reached out to help me troubleshoot issues I had (user error) and was super helpful.

I'm sure these settings are super meaningful to guitar nerds with deeper pockets than mine. Some things I've noticed just playing around:
- the preamp tube chosen (e.g. 12ax7 here) has a profound effect on everything that follows; change that first.
- 10" options seem punchier than the 12" or 15" cabinets
- Turning up the pregain gives it a gritty attack that I wish I had a use for because I like it.
ahem, the amp modeling shown
Linux people, I am hiring systems administrators! We work with scientific data, containers, big-ass tape libraries, supercomputers, and everything in between. We pay relocation, and you'd even get an actual honest-to-god pension.
Probably not a lot of people know this now, but Mastodon's web app started out with "Publish". In 2016 a famous YouTuber jokingly offered to support Mastodon's Patreon forever if I changed the button to say "Toot" instead. Needless to say, this was a really early, and not very informed decision. The first glimpse of attention and financial support. As a non-native speaker I had no idea there was another meaning.
My children decline to watch any of the films after Aliens (1986). As far as they are concerned, the story ends there and Ripley, Newt, and Hicks live happily ever after.
They are smart children.
oh that's right
it's because Michael Fassbender is absolutely brilliant in it
When I grow up (2024), I want to work in audio engineering/production. Or in disaster response. Or teach. Or be a dinosaur.
