What’s been happening #

  • I’ve been meaning to try out a bunch of things that I have been procrastinating upon:

    Writing it here so that I can check these out soon!

  • Earlier in the week I’d tweeted about re-discovering Dave Matthews Band.

    I used to listen to a lot of Dave Matthews Band during my early days in Chennai, on the office bus when we had an hour-long commute. Put on DMB and just watch the world disappear away! My mind somehow was reminded of Grey Street and this just triggered a whole bunch of emotions, nostalgia, and how amazing I’d feel listening to them. This past week, I’ve been listening to a whole lot of their live concerts, and my favourite has to be this 32-minute masterpiece of a collaboration with Béla Fleck and the Flecktones - every instrument is featured in the live piece and is a supremely amazing piece of live performance. Give it a listen

  • Published a fight of taking on Scion of the Elves in Divinity: Original Sin II. Much like many of the fights in Divinity, this one’s pretty challenging and forces you to think. I started playing Divinity: Original Sin II in Classic mode difficulty. I found the difficulty spikes to be much too annoying and frustrating and I dropped it down to Explorer. In this difficulty, I think it’s a tad bit too easy, but I know moving it back will get me frustrated with the game. Anyway, give the video a view.

  • Instagram ads are pretty annoying and irrelevant but I have to admit, most of my concert discovery has been via Instagram ads. I found out about Candlelight concerts]( via Instagram ad. They’re doing a tribute to Queen in June and I bought tickets for that. Let’s see how it goes!

  • I switched to Firefox again. I’d been using Edge for the past 4 years or so and wanted to try out Firefox again. Sadly not much has changed, container tabs are still the best feature. Dragging a tab out into a new Window is still clunky and slow. Dragging a tab out to my second monitor doesn’t bring it to the second screen. Just a bunch of papercuts, but still annoying.

There are plenty of links above! I’m also experimenting with having a separate post on the things I read this week.
