The new Depeche Mode album is out and it’s very, very good!

Keep telling myself
That people are good
Whisper it under my breath
So I don’t forget
Keep fooling myself
That they do all they can
Sometimes they simply slip up
But it’s not what they meant

Go probably has one of the best documentations I’ve read so far. The level of detail and enormous FAQ sections with verbose yet simple explanations make the Modules document worth reading (even just for fun).

I think Halt and Catch Fire in my new favorite OST.
I’m right after the second season, and… 🤯

Steve Jobs once said the truth about managers:

We’re going to be a big company, we thought. So let’s hire “professional managers.” We went out and hired a bunch of professional management, and it didn’t work at all. They knew how to manage, but they didn’t know how to do anything.

Spotify Wrapped popped up today and to my surprise, NIN is my top artist of 2022. Yeah, I love this band.

I have also been listening to Eric Hilton (Thievery Corporation) a lot this year. He’s got wonderful (but short) solo albums. I highly recommend his work if you want a little bit of the evening chill out.

But what shocked me about this summary is the absence of Mac Quayle. He was my No. 1 artist in the past years. I guess Mr. Robot’s vibes faded away… Mhm… until Volume 9, friend!

Today it’s 20th birthday of I’ve been using it daily since 2008, and I’ve already scrobbled 222,142 songs (according to the profile’s stats). Happy birthday!

I’m continuing to learn Go and must say I like it a lot. The language feels just right — very natural and logical. I wish I become more fluent in using it in a few more weeks.

Chronos — Mars (5-Years Anniversary) is an excelent album.

I discovered it weeks ago, but yesterday I re-listened it again… and again… and again.

Chronos — Mars (6-Years Anniversary)

Back in the day, I was a big fan of Jony Ive. But today I saw an interview with him on WSJ and… felt nothing.

To my surprise, a few years back when I would see something like this, I would go right away and read it from cover to cover, but this time I just took a look at the pictures and that was it.

I don’t care about this stuff anymore — especially when I’ve realized that Ive’s designs are not good in terms of usability or functionality.

They are just fancy, pricey and shiny objects. Nothing less nothing more. It’s funny how things changed for me.
