Yeah. The way they made it is so immersive. I might have to rewatch sometime soon, I think I’m going to be thinking about it for a long time

I just watched Children of Men (2006). I’ve been wanting to see it a long time. It was such an intense and moving film. Just brilliant. 9/10 🎥

@amerpie I think you’re right but on the other hand if the cool kids want to create these weird little exclusive bubbles why not let them 🤷‍♀️

It’s Saturday morning and I’ve already had a long weekend. I’m tired out. Worth it to spend some quality time with the oldest kid.

@Munish nice, sounds like a plan. I didn’t know you could get an EVF for the GR III

@Munish no I just keep it in a little pouch for protection but no lens cover or anything like that

@ner3y I really wanted to play some of the earlier titles in the series too, especially the one set in England. But I can’t justify owning two consoles at a time unfortunately :)

I love Micro.blog but sometimes it leans towards chaotic and unexpected.

Someone replied to my blog post by signing into their Bluesky account. But my reply to them was posted to my Bluesky account as a new post and not my hosted website, below their reply.

Very weird and funny. 🤷‍♀️

Unpacking is such a wholesome game. I’m 75% through and enjoying just taking my time, playing a new level every few weeks.

I love how the story is gently revealing itself.

I’ve been deep in my Lightroom catalog tonight. It’s hard work and tedious sorting through all these files. But I am making headway.

I don’t need AI to do any creating for me, but I would love it to help me sort through and categorise my art work.

@Munish looking forward to seeing your photos. I’ve been shooting with the GR II for a long time and I love it so much and I usually have it with me when I’m out and about. There’s plenty of great tutorials and recipes for the filters you can make and save out there on YouTube.

I had a really nice day with my oldest kid today. It’s been a long time since we had some quality time together, his life has been in upheaval recently with various things.

We watched a lot of Babylon 5 today.

Curation and consumption seem to be intimately connected when being social on the internet.

It’s too easy to get caught up being a rubber necker of some drama or another.

I find time and money invested in curation to be very good for my social health. And can save time later as an added benefit.

@jean I just bought the Canon Selphy CP1500 and it does these perfect 6x4 prints. Its an amazing little printer and I’m really happy (only 3 prints made so far tho) 😊

@amerpie Great post. Sadly I’m no longer in touch with many of my old friends that I met online. Some of them I met irl many times. It’s a totally valid way of meeting people. And for me the internet has been an important part of my social life

I’m really impressed with Omnivore app (thanks @amerpie). I’ve got it linked up to an ancient Obsidian vault I resurrected, updated the template, and it’s working great. It even synced a highlight on an OCRd PDF I uploaded to it. 🙂‍↕️

I had this profound moment this evening watching the Uber Eats driver trying to find my flat (it’s a bit difficult to find). I was feeling a bit grumpy watching him go the wrong way on the in-app map. But he did find his way and I watched him suddenly hesitate at the gate. And I saw why. So clearly on h... aeryn.me

This is the part that bothers me with switching to a new device. The nagging question: “Did everything really get copied over successfully?”

Aargh. Can I please just push that “Erase iPad” button, and stop manually looking for missing data?

Obsession.

I really liked Fortnite Season 2 (Ch.5). But I got sick of the grind towards the end, even though it was a shorter season. The quests were too easy to complete and not very interesting. I’d like to see more mini-story lines in the quests like the old days. Last night I was farming XP in creator maps becaus... aeryn.me

DuckDuckGo is down?

So weird that a search engine going down can interrupt my workflow.

Because it’s the default search engine on all my devices, I keep unexpectedly trying to use DDG to search for Google 🤪

I’ve been learning new digital art making techniques on the iPad. It’s a lot of fun.

Today I was interrupted by my washing machine needing its drain unblocking. It was very yucky.

I’ve been feeling crazy recently. Don’t know what’s going on tbh. Making art helps.
