First day back from paternity leave blues [13 Feb 2012|10:38am]

It was good spending time with Izzy. Asha too, though at this stage she doesn't really hold up her end of the conversation like Asha does.

I am drifting. Life is good but I need some direction.

Lesser resolutions for the year:

  1. Build a snowman with Izzy

  2. Grow something from a seed with Izzy

  3. Sidewalk stencils (w/ Dav?)

Izzy was screaming about something the other day.

IZZY: whine whine scream scream
ME: Stop that! You catch more flies with honey than... by yelling at them. (?)

Need to practice my hoary wisdom cliches cos I'm pretty sure that's not how it goes

I got some Sonos wireless speakers. It's pretty exciting even though I can't play music loud that often. Getting frustrated with the limits of cloud catalogs though. A lot of early Aphex Twin stuff isn't on Spotify, or iTunes, or anywhere. (Other than YouTube that is)

YouTube has the most complete catalog. I wish they'd just become a music service. You can't autoplay playlists on mobile (meaning you have to hit play for each song in the playlist). I think they purposely made it this way so you can't use YouTube as a music service.

I got to put together my own Aphex Twin rarities collection. The song above will be on there. I think the technological limitations of the time were a big part of his sound. The kids today can make any kind of sound, but that means you don't get a particular sound like in AFX days.

Not sure how to find the time to start writing again. I dunno. It's true, it ends not with a bang but a whimper
