On the topic of purchases I recently discovered the Sanquhar pattern and next time you see me I will probably be wearing full hat, jumper, scarf and gloves combo https://www.sanquharknits.com/
My most optimistic purchase of recent times - five juggling balls, after watching this video https://vimeo.com/62145217
Falsehoods programmers believe about programming.
Saw the news that Tesla is now accepting Bitcoin payments for cars, so I looked up some figures and did some math.
According to Tesla's own figures, a Model 3 saves 30 tons of CO2 emissions over its lifetime compared to a traditional car. A Model 3 costs 0.69-1.21 BTC. Mining one BTC results in 257 tons of CO2 emissions.
For the next time someone tells you Elon Musk is saving the planet.
And in my attempt this year to pad every rant of mine with substance:
If you need to, implement your "magic music box" quickly and get it out of your system.
Reducing musical structure to modulo-12 arithmetic will only get you so far.
It's not what you say, it's *how* you say it that matters. https://pbat.ch/wiki/howyousay/
Patterns and sequences that look good aren't always going to sound good, and usually don't.
When in doubt, treat music as a subset of speech.
Musical performance is a continuous gesture. It's only our clunky protocols that lump it into discrete events (the same can be said about digital audio).
Visualizations of music are helpful the way flat maps of earth are helpful. They give you information conveniently, but they distort reality.
Acknowledge the keyboard bias inherent in our music software (for keyboardists, by keyboardists), and aggressively walk towards it or against it.
Four well managed voices in a big space has served humans well for hundreds of years. It doesn't need to be anything more than that.
