It's rare that a band/album catches me so off-guard. Really not sure what to think of this. I think I like it. violetcold.bandcamp.com/album/

My uncle just finished 1.6 kg, 700 pages long dictionary of Northern Sami, a language spoken by around 20,000 speakers.

Sami are an indigenous people who have inhabited large parts of Northern Europe spanning from Russia to Norway for millenniums.

He has dedicated his life to advocate for their rights and preserve their languages and culture. This book is a major contribution in an effort to ensure that this ancient language will be passed on to future generations.

I was really hoping to like The Ministry for the Future far more than I did. Still, another book off the list.

Not sure how I feel about this Coldplay/BTS combo. On the other end, Billy Strings made it on the new music friday list which is pretty rad.

Currently reading Becky Chambers' book Psalm for the Wild-Built and loving it.

Starting to acquire a taste for toasted dandelion tea. Hm, might be an interesting addition to a batch of mead...

Finally getting around to reading House of Leaves

This book was a lot more interesting than I expected. Could use an abridged version, but would recommend if you're into that sort of thing. goodreads.com/book/show/501244

Seems like the head of the UN has been listening to a lot of Enter Shikari. Looking forward to reading the actual report.

What's your favorite platform for taking online courses? I've only used EdX for HarvardX courses, and I didn't love it.

After scrolling through social media as a replacement for actual interaction.

Oh sweeet, my basement flooded. Drumset and guitars and amps and all. So it goes.
