Im sick. Sorry this whole weekly blog things is become lame and predictable with very little content. My life is going to get super crazy later this year, so stick around
I had to go to bed at lunchtime yesterday and didn’t get up again until this morning. I feel a bit better today but still groggy and under the weather. At least I’m not having hot/cold shivers any more.
Eve and I went for dinner earlier in the week and we had a really nice time. the sun was gorgeous and it was still light and about 20 degrees when we walked back along the thames about 9pm. Wonderful.
In my fevered state yesterday i had a good chat with Mat Dryhurst on twitter. Click though to see it.
No Podcast this week due to being ill. I might try and do one early next week to bridge the gap as i’ll be in the Netherlands at bordersessions next Friday. It makes me feel tired already thinking about it.
Dipping the Stacks
I wanted to have my talk for bordersessions done already. Im plugging away at it today but because i still feel under the weather I literally manage to review or make one slide then i have to walk round the flat for a bit and force myself to get back to it.
This is the first time i’ve left something so last min. usually my talks are done the week before. Hopefully i’ll finish it because it will be majorly embarrassing if i didn’t. A disappointment to myself and all the people that paid money to see me. Im sure i’ll get it done tho.
MOAR WARHAMMER 40k. its absolutely fantastic. I’m going to recommend the series to anyone that askes about scifi series. There’s like 50 books and its like watching the mythology of your childhood unfold in front of your eyes.
OMG Diplo Charlie XCX and Herve Pagez have a spice girls mashup single out. It’s wild. The mining of the past to create present popular culture continues apace.
The main thing i’d like to point your attention towards this week is the new track from Poppy and Fever 333. Watch the whole video and listen to the whole track. Instead of mining the past like the Diplo track above. The insane fusion of genres this track goes with should be the template for the future. Or listen to the intro, the first 20 secs or so and then skip forward to 2.44. The final riff drives, like wading though thick mud.
I was away back in Jan when the track Voicemail came out. Its a fucking cracker. The distorted kick drum sound is perfect. *chefs kiss* This track is like the inside of my brain at a blockchain conference.
