The current film camera is a lovely little Ricoh GR1s loaded with Kodak Tri-X
After a few weeks of reading real books, going back to my Kindle seems a little strange. It’s wonderful, distraction free technology and so much more capable, but there’s something wonderful about sitting quietly with a book.
The weekend was very busy but great fun. I’m on my daughters’ school’s Parent Council and we put on a community cinema and silent disco for 600+ to celebrate the school’s 125th anniversary.
It’s been a while. Tonight’s craft beer is a porter from the beautiful Orkney islands. Barrel-aged and 10% ABV, it’s a very stealthy beer that pours with no head and looks like a glass of cola. Lovely, thick and black!
I’m listening to my Beatles albums on shuffle. It’s impressive just how consistently good each song is and the variety of styles, emotions and stories.
Im thoroughly enjoying Margaret Atwood’s retelling of Shakespeare’s ‘Tempest’. It’s ingenious and so readable.
Lunch today included three of these enormous scallops. They needed to be shelled first and were delicious!
Well that’s this year’s order from the Hobonichi store all sorted. Buying next year’s planners on September 1st has started to mark the journey to the end of the year in the way that making Christmas pudding also does.
I am now starting to get seriously pissed-off with this notification!
This has been quite a retro week.
I’m back to using Omnifocus now that the cruel Context overlord has been overthrown and loving it.
My simple notes are back in Simplenote.
I like the idea that a ritual is a break in our daily lives.
These sort of choices annoy me. I never know which one to choose and on what criteria. I don’t blame individual sites who may be using a CMS that generates multiple feeds.
I don’t like the approach of pushing the choice to users on what’s ‘best’.
Do Omnifocus 3.0 perspectives allow tag searches for a tag that is NOT present?
I remember when Adobe software used to be more elegant. This mess of fonts and alignments in Adobe Acrobat Read just annoys me enormously.
As an EU-user, I’m trying to recover some faith with @instapaper. As far as text layout on an iPhone X goes, it’s not going fantastically well thus far!
I’m back from holiday and struggling to sort through far too many photographs. Digital cameras are great but I wish I sbould apply the same discipline as when I shoot with film.
Just a quick photo of my wife’s ‘EDC’ pepper mill. That’s all…
Someone appears to have dumped a large chess piece on the north east coast of Scotland.
This may be my favourite little free library ever.
Is there an easy way to find old CDs I ripped in iTunes? I can see the ‘encoded with’ data is different but can’t search for it.
Ideally I’d like to create a smart search.
New blog post: Three for July. This month it’s Kamasi Washington, Moonlight and a book on Mindfulness (as recommended by @patrickrhone)
Tonight I’ve been dragged to a Bananarama gig. Altered Images were a really good support act.
