New server, new .

I'm Hugh. I live in south-west with my partner and children. I work as a web developer, and contribute to .

I make occasionally. I've played bass in bands, but mostly I compose weird music solo on a computer. I contributed a track to the second A Whale's Lantern compilation by musicians of Mastodon, collaborating with Mascha.

I speak some , and less .

It's almost October, which is almost Christmas, which means that my a cappella trio needs new Christmas/winter songs! If you can recommend any three part arrangements/compositions (SAT/SAB/AAT/AAB), let me know! We are open to all genres, time periods, and difficulties.

The GRA reform petition just went over 75,000, and I'm wondering if it might get to 100,000 today? That would be *huge*

Yesterday, the muck spreader was out doing its thing on the field next to our house. Today, there's a digger shovelling it all up again.

The joys of farming, eh?

I've always found those american late night talk shows excruciatingly unfunny and smug, but it's almost worth it just to see this old video of Mr T absolutely crushing David Letterman youtu.be/Y0ir6AlHM5s

There's a new Gangstagrass album: No Time for Enemies is vintage Gangstagrass, blending country and hiphop to make something that is both recognizably connected to both but fundamentally different from either.

If a country/hiphop band sounds like a contradiction in terms, consider the history of both Black and country music, which are intimately related to the history of broadcasting and recording.

Some bitter, hateful old Trump supporter sent us this photo of one of our stickers, staying he had destroyed the sticker becauseโ€”in shortโ€”he is in favor of mass deportations and similar fascistic measures.

Itโ€™d be poetic justice if this photo he sent ends up seen by more people here on the internet than the original sticker would have been had he left it up where it was! Please share this post around to that purpose.

You can get copies of this sticker here for cheap:

just found out about this unknown 80s german new wave song

proposed titles are "like the wind" and "check it in, check it out" which both feature pretty heavily in the lyrics

most of the words are kinda hard to discern though, i feel like whoever made this song might not know english very well

Bored of my YouTube being mostly straight white beardy dudes. Specially on the game journalism, music making and production side of things. Any recommendations?

TIL Git is named not after the American variant of "get", but the British insult.
