or until his girlfriend(s)? show up 😔
I'm not leaving the cafe until Hottie leaves.
I think I got the bass drum tuned better and I adjusted the beater height.
Maybe I'll try recording tomorrow.
I've been living without owning a car for the past 10 years, and I'd never go back. Yes, it's easy even in the US, even in a big city (*especially* in a big city!)

@arturovm I don't know if you ever bought a headphone amp but you might want to pick up one of these if you have the money http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/Headphoneamp/NFB1138/NFB1138EN.htm
Sort of depressing, but a really interesting read: https://hyperallergic.com/313435/an-illustrated-guide-to-guy-debords-the-society-of-the-spectacle/
So our ship has embarked a troop of Albanian commandos. They spell it "Kommandoes". I can't seem to shake the feeling that they're actually from the Warhammer 40k universe.
(Either that or they're some kind of little-known paramilitary wing of the KDE foundation)
I want to visit this enchanted forest one day: https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/17/t-magazine/yakushima-japan-hayao-miyazaki-princess-mononoke.html
I guess I should apply for that "data conversion" job I always see posted? I'm desperate.
So I got inspired with the new Apple Watch complications and wrote a tiny app that shows the next *visible* pass of the ISS (or any other satellite) as a complication. The ring goes through dark blue (next 8h), light blue (next hour), and yellow (pass in progress) stages. It's pretty nifty! Bottom left complication in picture:
'Midday Pipe': A tradition (I suspect only British, though I don't really have the experience to be able to say otherwise) whereby, on a long sea passage, a seafarer will at midday broadcast the vessel's position, a summary of the previous day's passage, that of the following day, and a joke or an amusing fact. Job usually falls to a cadet.
On my ship I have been (by dint of being the least radio-shy cadet) 'in charge' of the midday pipe.
Any clever jokes or facts very much appreciated!

Quick visit to Fushimi Inari... I've already been there twice, but... :-)
I had this idea that I would just buy a bunch of instruments and then I would finally be able to record rock songs! How hard could it be? But people spend a lifetime on every aspect of this process so of course it doesn't sound that good when I pick it up and give it a whack.
I wonder why I don't record music more, but everything takes time. Took me like an hour to put that baffle in my bass drum. I had never taken the heads off before and never tuned it before. Everything has a learning curve. So, no wonder.
Now, where did I put that moon gel 🤔
