That which

The water's translucence amuses me.

Oof. The new Blogger interface makes it hard to see where the cursor is. And you can't tell if the images you post are "original size" or just some arbitrary Blogger size. Bleh. 

Tegeler makes some very interesting compressors and EQ's. 

Sound Skulptor makes an interesting 500-series kit for an SSL-style compressor. 

I actually own Camtasia, but it is a bit annoying. There are other options. Free Cam. And even the free, built-in screen recorder in Windows 10. Depends on what you're up to. 

All I've done during the pandemic is gain weight. I haven't gotten better at guitar. I haven't gotten into shape or written a screenplay. 

Dungeons of Chaos. I understand you can be killed by rabbits. Video game. 

It works like this:

  1. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water. Bring to boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Allow to cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  2. Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.

I don't really have a way to measure of "cup" of anything. I should get one of those Pyrex things. I know, I'm such a single man. It's interesting to me that you make the syrup separately. And that you use more sugar than water to make that syrup.

For me, it's easier to just put everything into one blog. So I've stopped posting to the Tyrannosaurus Mouse blog, and to the Pandora Machine blog, and to the Puppies and Toast blog, and I'm putting all my nonsense here where I started -- the Pleasure for the Empire blog.

Why? Well. Yes. Why. I have no idea.

Winston, with Meydl in background.
Part of it is that I don't know whether some things belong under "music" or "film." Like, for instance, video games. Or my PhD that I'm working on, which is music in film.

Anyway, all my incoherence will be here now.
