@danipozo it's just awesome, yes. But also, they already played that song together back in 1981! youtube.com/watch?v=W3BzAKHCEv (First song in that album).

Curiously, the older version is a lot faster, but the more recent version has a lot more feeling to it 🙂

@xiroux and the bassist. And the percussionists. Everyone in there is amazing

Me age 24, a moron: "I don't like that flamenco crap. I like things like metal, with nice guitars, and complex rhythmic and harmonic structures and..."

Me age 34: "Yeah, metal is fine, but I like things with nice guitars, and complex rhythmic and harmonic structures... like flamenco"

I've had this video on loop at work for 2 weeks now: youtube.com/watch?v=mYYDdn1rRK

@maloki @InvaderXan @Juju I confirm Swedish is exactly like this 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

Daughter has reached the age of asking "why?" to everything.

"hold on to that cup with both hands"
"why?"
"i don't want you to drop it"

"why?"
"because glass is brittle"
"why?"
"because supercooling molten silicon dioxide makes an amorphous solid which is weaker than the crystalline form"
"why?"
"the crystalline form has a tetrahedral lattice of ionic bonds"
"why?"
"because one silicon atom can bind with four oxygen"
"why?"

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

I also wish someone did a proper remix. It feels very appropriate sometimes
