The fascinating thing is I am literally starting from scratch: no kit, no musical skill at all. I just love music.
I've yet to finish a song, but early days yet. Some bits even sound vaguely musical.

I keep going to toot about my music hobby but then I realise I don't have a way of explaining even the perfectly normal parts in English. I've been trying to work out how you make a … driving bassline? Is that what I mean? But then I want it in 3/4 time, which is weird. But I think I understand now. It's all about the "and" in one-and-two-and-three-and?

I made dinner, and while it was cooking, crushed chilies from the dehydrator to store. I wasn't careful enough and something must have jumped in the pan… :(
Luckily it wasn't entirely inedible but I can't say I'll be making Chocolate Habanero paella again any time soon…
(For reference: chocolate habanero is about ten times stronger than a scotch bonnet.)

We talk about Salt, Sweet, Savoury, and Unami. But what is the single taste that lies at the intersection of barbecued meat, crispy bacon, coffee? Burnt but not burnt. So satisfying, to so many. There should be a word.

I mean the first section is : "Why Discs"? and for a completely different reason that you'd ask that today…

*note to self*

When commenting on the regulation of online pornography, do not refer to a “gaping hole”.

Unless you are Humphrey Lyttleton.

QT The_AVPA: Welcome progress towards implementing the #AudioVisualMediaServicesDirective but there remains a gaping hole in regulation as far as pornography is concerned which cannot wait til the Online Safety Bill, assuming it is amended, comes into force in 2025

Of course now I've mad a fool of myself because the track is called _Picture This_. That's what happens when a song takes you by surprise, I suppose. m.youtube.com/watch?v=QbdCpi4q
