Due to circumstances somewhat beyond my control, I had to upgrade my #iPhone from a 7 Plus to a XR (Coral, looks dope). The enchanced photo processing combined with the wide gamut display means photos like this really pop! I do miss the 2X zoom lens from my iPhone 7 Plus, but otherwise, the iPhone XR is a really solid product and I’m enjoying it tremendously.

On a family outing in #portland last weekend, we saw this classic Buick parked along the street—gleaming in the sunlight and in absolutely imacculate condition inside and out. Now I’ve never had a particular interest in owning and maintaining classic cars, but if I did…I’d want this one. 😎

This is my first test of the studio’s new vlogging desk setup. I’ve had lots of ideas about doing product reviews, short topical monologues, narratives interspersed with travel videos, etc. I can’t wait to finish getting this all ready! #vlog

One of my favorite #synthmusic artists is Jerome Froese, formerly of Tangerine Dream fame. He joined the group at the end of the 80s during a period of tremendous stylistic and technological change. His father Edgar originally founded TD in the late 60s, so you can imagine twenty years later there was much that was different about the “vibe” of the band (much to the chagrin of many long-time fans).

Nevertheless, I would argue and few would deny that one of the big highlights of 90s-era TD was the Dream Mixes series, principally composed and spearheaded by Jerome. Of this series, DM II is probably my favorite. It’s a heady blend of techno, drum&bass, chill, world fusion, and other styles that got big in the 90s, yet with an overall depth and sensibility that evokes the greatness of classic Berlin School electronica.

Jerome has released a newly remastered 2019 edition of Dream Mixes II, and I highly recommend it. I’m listening to it right now, and it sounds fabulous.

I was messing around with ZenBrush on my new iPad Pro and this emerged. I apologize in advance to any Chinese calligraphy experts out there…I have no idea what I’m doing! This is supposed to say “Serenity.” Hopefully I didn’t botch it completely. Anyway, ZenBrush is an amazing app. (This is straight out of the device—it’s not actually a canvas hanging up in an art gallery! 😲) #iPadPro #creativity

Welp, this is a thing now. First draft of my design for a new blog and course learning all about Stimulus, a lightweight Javascript framework from the Basecamp folks. I’ve really enjoyed working with it for over a year now…it’s made coding web frontends so much nicer!

Hoping to get the #website launched ASAP…possibly in February if I can keep up the momentum.
