Excited for my parents to bring up my Cajon - and then I might get an SM57 mic for recording instruments that way.

I have a feeling the AT2020 I bought 80% for vocals is not gonna do great at capturing a drum or an amp.....

Awwww yissss, more electronic boxes for my desk.

This time, audio things.
Gonna set up the mic later. Perhaps I'll have a go at tracking something later this week.

Sad that DHL said my package ( shipped on Friday last week ) was expected on Monday.
But the package is only just on it's way out of Germany.

I will mein USB Audio Interface!! Schnell, DHL, schnell.

(This is kinda a joke, its impractical to expect a package to make it's way from Cöln to Nottingham in like...2 working days.)

There is SO much to learn. How will I ever have time to learn all the things I want too?

I made a blues bass line loop in A major and it sounds so dumb.

But it's been fun recording it over and over to get it right, understanding the key and such.

Having a loop pedal is even more fun now I have a bass guitar.

1: Loop bass
2: Unplug bass, plug in guitar.
3: loop chords
4: improvise over loop

Kinda inspired by @rixx streaming Pretalx dev sometimes.

If someone without a massive online following, or existing streaming audience can get something out of streaming FOSS development - perhaps I can too.

I'm considering live-streaming next Friday's compiler development session - even if no one watches it.

Probably low-effort streaming to Twitch or something.

I finally have a USB Audio Interface arriving on Monday. So, audio will sound good!

Made lots of progress on the parsing section of my C99 compiler today.

In theory, it parses a 'unary expression' to some extent.

I'm fairly happy with all the support-code and the structure.

From here on it'll be implementing each expression in the C99 grammar until all productions are supported.

Getting a deskphone was one of the best things I did for making it easy to call people.

Calls to the GP, Gender clinic, work stuff, vets, kitchen fitters - you name it, any phone call is made easier somehow because I can use a proper, office desk phone.

Especially things where you end up on hold for ages like the doctors.

I have recently been exploring the "pile of files" approach to journaling/note taking and its been working out well.

Its just Markdown.
Has "Tags:...." at the top.

Thats it.

Its very low effort, and fairly easy to search for stuff.
Importantly, I don't have to care about organising it in any way.

She doesn't have organ on all her tracks - it honestly sounds like the Hammond is only on tracks that wouldn't sound bluesy without it.

I've been listening to a lot of Joanna Shaw Taylor over the past couple days.

She's really good, I like her music a lot!

Many of the songs sound like this conversation happened in the recording booth:

"Folks, this isn't blues, this sounds like a rock song."

"Damit, we're a blues band! Quick, let's add an organ, where's the keyboard player and that spinning speaker... "

Obviously, I hate that she is 23 and an MP while I am 25 and a nothing, but hey ho, she is great.

I went to a Trans Rights x Black Rights protest march in Nottingham today.

My MP spoke in solidarity when we got to town.

I have NEVER been more represented by my MP than with this MP.
I am so glad to have my MP come to a protest and talk about her pushing against scrapping GRA reform.

Nadia Whittome (Nottingham East, aged 23) is amazing.

Taking the plunge today and starting to actually write parsing code for C.

It is currently 😱.

Mostly because connecting the theory of top-down parsing with actually writing code that does it is hard.
Even when the C standard comes with a grammar!
