My New Year's resolution for 2019 is to be more , play more , make more , capture more and and of course share it on and .

First I wanted to make a personal website that could link to my creative endeavours though:

It's the first website I've made so I kept it simple, but I'm pretty proud of it, haha!

The next step is to announce on that I won't be uploading videos there anymore!

I say why on my website 😎

Happy New Year Fediverse!

It's still a few hours left until midnight here, but I went ahead and fulfilled my new years resolution of 2018: To get off all privacy violating services.

This year I've deleted , , +, , and switched from to , switched from to , switched from to , started using @matrix for messaging, installed on my phone etc.

Here I come 2019! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ†

I like the new colourful icon down in the left corner, @tom79!

Oh, wait @pixelfed :pixelfed:


It's nice to have a place like Mastodon where one can find refuge in these times πŸ€—

I've been trying out the past couple of days: 'An open network for secure, decentralized communication'.

It's kinda like the Mastodon of messengers, or more accurately the fediverse of messengers, although calling it a is a bit of an understatement.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I think it's great! A much needed solution to an increasing problem, not sure why I held of from checking it out for so long! πŸ˜…

They're also on : @matrix πŸ‘

I was quite disappointed when I learned that only officially supported .

Resolve, together with , was the main reasons I could finally let go of .

After not being satisfied with the other video editors available for I started looking into Resolve again and thanks to the Linux community I now have it running on !_OS ✌️

Hopefully will extend their official support to more distributions with time, it's so good!

Can we take a moment to appreciate Mary Austin. A woman who was the love and inspiration of one of Great Britain's biggest celebrities, Freddie Mercury, and never tried to use that for her own personal gain.

Today I learned a new term and now everything makes sense. Show more

I've been trying out various video editors for Linux this week. I didn't want to go through the trouble of getting DaVinci Resolve to work on Pop!_OS as it's only officially supported on CentOS.

One thing became abundantly clear however, Blackmagic Design's offering is leaps and bounds ahead of the alternatives!

It's actually quite amazing how much Blackmagic has improved Resolve the past couple of years.

I guess I'll have to go through the trouble after all 😬

I've been trying to figure out how to do this watermark thing today.

@eishiya recommended to have a URL in it, but it was difficult to have it be visible in the photo without sticking out like a distracting sore thumb.

I think I'll go with something like this unless anyone has a better idea πŸ™‚

What do you think about watermarks? Show more

TFW Fresh Guitar Strings 😌

Why, oh, why don't I do this more often?!

I'll ask myself the same thing the next time I put on fresh strings... in 2020 πŸ˜…

How to use 'Night Light' properly:

1. As soon as you notice the display shifting to an awful yellow tint, turn off Night Light by pressing 'Disable Until Tomorrow'.

2. Continue as you were.

3. At 00:00 the display will suddenly turn yellow which will remind you that you should've been in bed already, go to bed quickly.

Repeat every day.

Education is important, but music is importanter.

I need more musicians in my feed!

If you are one, or have someone to recommend, feel free to let me know. I'll check it out and follow if it's up my alley 🎢

A rough test of the drum sampler I put together last weekend πŸ₯
