Weeknotes #14

Looking back at the weeks since my last Weeknotes it is safe to say that at the least on this blog plenty of things have happened, even if that that might not be obvious on first sight.

So, maybe I’ll start with the blog

Blog

While I have found again interest in building the blog as my main social platform, I still struggle to publish anything meaningful. Then again, who cares.

What I care though is the design of this blog, and as such I have on average changed the theme of the blog a couple of times (over the span of two weeks or such) a day, but in the end went back to the default theme. If I would have already re-imported all posts from the past, I would be able to count how much I wrote that since I started blogging.

Obviously, I’m back to where-ever I left off. 🤦‍♂️ Not sure what to think about that.

Media/Reading

So, we’ve got HBO-Max and Prime during the last few weeks I watched the whole run of the Big Bang Theory. I watched it before of course, but then got stuck for whatever reason at the 8th (or so) season and as previously, it is huge fun though, great show.

As a new long-term project we (my son and I) started to watch Doctor Who again as well, but that will surely take some time get done.

At the same time I’m reading “The Eye of The World”. I will really have to finish that soon as the last book in the Expanse-Series will be out next week. But one thing at a time.

Work

For an upcoming project I started to work on the baritone saxophone which is huge fun, but other than than that things are running smoothly along. A few more concerts are coming up in the next weeks as well. Hopefully, with the corona-restrictions are getting tighter again, they will even take place.

Random

It seems that Obsidian is taking over all things that I do with text-/writing (writing this though in Gutenberg, somehow seems one-click-less) and it is working rather well for me. I’m not much (if at all) into all the Graph-/Backlink things but rather just use to organize my notes for work and planning stuff. Things I up to recently used my Bullet Journal for. Crazy, but it seem to fit rather nicely into my workflow plus it is available on all platforms that I’m using on a daily basis, which is a first I guess.

So, I guess that it is for now, and more in a couple of weeks.

The Return of the Baritone

I haven’t played the baritone sax for at the least 15 years and had some fun today working on it in preparation for an upcoming project. In fact I had so much fun, I could imagine spending more time with the instrument.

Here are three choruses on a rather well-known standard.

An Astronaut

The other day we went to see the Lumo Light Festival and watched this beautiful installation. It was a fun light show.

Signed up for Prime (again) to be able to watch “The Wheel of Time” and was happy to realize that also all seasons of Doctor Who are available. Been missing that.

Don’t expect updates anytime soon

well, at least on reading-updates or possibly on things I watched.

Thing is that we got HBO-Max and I started to re-watch “The Big Bang Theory” which is again huge fun. While it was on TV I think I only got up to 7th season or so, so there is a lot to catch up with.

Also I started reading the audiobook of Robert Jordan’s The Eye of the World. Looking at the numbers, 14 books, each about 30 hours in length and an average reading time of one hour a day, I expect to be finished with the series in somewhere around Christmas next year.

So, the book-log is likely to be a whole lot shorter next year.

If any of the above means anything to you, you know where to go to. See you there!

Finished reading the audio-book of Clive Barker’s “Mister B Gone” during the night. Who thought the life-story of a demon could be both grizzly and fun. The book was read, performed in fact, by “Pinhead” actor Doug Bradlely (Hellraiser), who I was delighted to learn, also has a series of classic horror stories he’s performing. Great! 📚

And no, I didn’t burn the book.

It took me less than a day to be reminded as to why I stopped using digital for my task management in the first place. That was quick.

Update yet one more day later: still fiddling with getting that to work better. I can’t be helped.
