Adrian Tritschler's stuff
My website, an agglomerative mess, probably half-eaten by a grue
Friday morning, house to myself, finally opened the Hawkwind box set and put all six CDs in the player and hit play
Spotify just decided to play Roxy Music's [Virginia Plain] (<https://www.last.fm/music/Roxy+Music/_/Virginia+Plain>) for me. Last night RRR's Superfluity opened with the same track
Read an Ian Rankin Rebus novel, listening to a Rebus-inspired Spotify playlistSo much of the character of John Rebus revolves around his music, firmly places his age and style. Curiousity got me, a quick search and I found a playlist someone had created, whether of albums & songs mentioned, or just inspired by… of course now Spotify will think I’m an old boomer too from a day or two of the Stones, Black Sabbath, Nazareth, Velvet Underground and Joni Mitchell
I've been listening to Tinariwen all day and my ears hurtThese headphones drown out cow-orkers, but eventually they make my ears hurt, especially my left one
Blondie's Atomic comes on, memories fly outDriving around at night with Richard in his bright yellow Ford Escort, cold Canberra nights, music blasting
TIL tbray SoTD WPAwell there you go; courtesy of Tim Bray’s Song of the Day series I’ve found that Barrett’s Privateers, made famous in my ears by Weddings, Parties, Anything, is from Canadian Stan Rogers
Music – The Knacklistening to the entire album “Get the Knack” to relive a little childhood, for years I had – and probably still have – a cassette tape with a live concert and had never realised that it’s probably that album played through, I think I’d only ever heard “My Sharona” on the radio. Very cheesy, no wonder it appealed to my 14yr old self.
Mark E. SmithOh, I just discovered that Mark E. Smith died back in January, on [2018-01-24 Wed]. It must have been while we were away up at Bright
There’s not much more I can add to who I am.
I experiment. I play. I write and I take pictures. Some of the site is organised around topics, other parts are organized by date, then there’s always the cross-references between them.
Its all been here a fairly long time. Like the papers on my desk, or the books on the bedside table, the pile just grew… and it all grew without much plan or structure. I try not to break URLs, so historical oddities abound.
Long ago it started as a learning experiment with a few static HTML pages, then I added a bit of server-side includes and some very ugly PHP. A hand-built journal/blog on top of that PHP, then a few experiments in moving to various static publishing systems. I’ve never wanted a database-based blogging engine, so over the years I’ve tried PHP, nanoblogger, emacs-muse, silkpage and docbook before settling on Emacs Org mode for writing and jekyll for publishing. But the itch remained… I never really liked jekyll and the ruby underneath always seemed so much black magic. So now the latest incarnation is Org mode and hugo.
