Deep Funk

Deep thoughts - Friend, Male, from South of Amsterdam, near The Hague.

Developing an addiction to guitar solos. I have been seeing a "Ghost", such a "Dance Macabre" and beware of the "Miasma"... Apr 8, 2020 at 12:55 PM

      The girl I liked turned me down. She felt flattered though. Better luck next time. Time to go fishing...

        Do not let your soul be trained out bro. It is hypocritical to say that all the mess that follows is absolutely necessary. Later when you hit bottom the hypocrites say you are weak! Keep it real and do not lean into bs (negative outcomes).

        Girls can be thoughtless. I don't think they realize how difficult it is for someone to summon up the courage to ask them out.
        Don't let a rejection bring you down, keep cheerfully asking other girls. There are several lovely ones just waiting for your paths to cross and to meet you.

      Tried a different ricotta for the pasta sauce. Good ricotta makes a difference. Practising my pasta skills, about to become a pasta trainee.

        Went for more expensive Galbani ricotta this time. Pleasantly surprised.

      Reading Marcus Aurelius' "Meditations" makes you realise that stoics were the real optimists of their time. Death, oh well it happens...

      Read about the Fujifilm X-T100. Is it worth ditching your Pentax kit for? If that thing has proper weather and dust sealing, oh boy...

        The XT100 isn't sealed. However, lots of Fuji owners go out in the rain and dusty areas with non-sealed models. The X100 series comes to mind. I've gone out with my X100F, gotten it all rained on, no problems. Just wipe off with a dry cloth, and of course don't submerge it.

        Rossetta Stoned > Vicarious. Don't mean to go total fanboy here but I have always enjoyed the direction that band has been evolving... and yet Ænima has always been my favorite.

        I'm excited to hear it, but even 10,000 Days took long to come out. And they pretty much did Lateralus all over again with crappier pacing. Haven't heard the new tracks, but it would've been cool for them to do a complete left turn like Kid A, after all these years. But yeah, a good prog rock record is quite enough at this point.

        Pale Moon... Looks and feels like Firefox used to do when it was a good browser that didn't just want to be Chrome. It supports the old extensions infrastructure too. Can't say, though, how many developers might not think it worthwhile to support us ff fork users.

        I find that printing and reading on real paper is way more effective for finding errors than reading on-screen. Not sure why this is.

        Possibly because I was a professional editor for a decade, I ask my wife to proofread my most important emails. There's always one phrase that can be clearer—and I catch it reading over her shoulder.

        The job was a great fit. Ambitious but doable. If ever you need to present yourself for a job and you are 95% certain there will be a screen or projector, prepare those slides and go for it. One dude simply impressed with his tattoos. It was a bit random. Lesson learnt...

        I always try to opt for the direct and personal approach. You get many noes but it is possible to catch a big fish. You simply go out there, whether you are the best candidate or not does not matter.

        You show up and are motivated enough to face the music. That is risky but unique opportunities do present themselves.

        I know the feeling. Most of my life is filled with routines and sub-routines. This job hunt is a good opportunity to refine them so I try to enjoy the process. Seriously, at least have that amount of fun with your OCD.
