Cleaning lady: *wants some tunes during work*
Me: "Sure, I wanted to listen to some music as well.. not sure if our genres match though 🤔"
Cleaning lady (CL): "So what kind of music do you listen to?"
CL: "So um.. synthesizers?"
Me: "Well yes, but it kind of ties in with the dark side of technology.. the whole 1984 dystopian future etc. Privacy, lack of user freedom, etc."
CL: "So essentially cult music?"
TIL that the tech community is a cult for listening to synthwave. I bet she believes that tech peeps are lizards too.
*mentally slaps cleaning lady* - User!!13
- Currently coughing my lungs out, I'm not working tomorrow to keep my colleagues safe
- Cat is purring on my shoulder
- Listening to some dope ass synthwave
- Updating the JetBrains IDEs so that I can work on something to busy my mind
- It's 3:45 AM.6
A synthwave theme for VS Code, you can even customize it with css!
I am such a 1337 Hackerman. I always use dark theme, Terminal is always opened with black and green theme, and loud sunthwave music blasting from my computer. No wonder everyone around me thinks that I am a haxxor.
EDIT: I also forgot to add that I keep playing old school roguelike Terminal games like Dwarf Fortress and Cataclysm: Dark Days Ahead. I also am a big fan of the Commodore machines. Jesus Christ, I am quite a geek, huh?1
One of my main hobbies is composing music. I had been in a creative funk for almost half a year when, during my vacation, I randomly discovered this little music production program for Nintendo Switch called Korg Gadget.
So far I've created 6 finished tracks, and this latest one I took a step further by giving some extra time and care.
I'm really glad to have the creative juices flowing again, especially since work has not been great lately...
Give it a listen, if you like. The other tracks are available as well :-)
New track. Sort of Synthwave. Composed with Korg Gadget on Nintendo Switch, mixed on a pc.
Hey guys, as a few of you know, I am a huge SynthWave Junkie. I just love the 80s waves, dude.
Well, I discovered a German artist "Compilerbau." I listened to his most popular album "Tachyon" and was left in awe. It is just... perfect. Please, give it a listen!
Found another type of music yesterday.
Lo-fi. It feels like it's a mixture of EDM (a little bit), Hiphop, Synthwave, Jazz and Trap.
I like it.4
Since I can't make many posts, I'll try squeeze them all in one:
1. Phone recruitment interview went "well", I even spoke french at some point! 😃
I have to brush up my knowledge again for the technical test (I hate them). Somehow I got excited, which I shouldn't, but only time will tell...
2. My brain is stuck with opening a Twitter account, mainly for following people/companies news. I don't know if it's worth it, so I would your feedback on this.
3. I've finally come down to listening to synthwave while coding and I was wondering if there's any good free service (I'm still poor, so I don't want neither Deezer nor Spotify), preferably with a UWP app on Windows 10 (that is not Soundcloud).4
Have visual studio/android studio pre-opened and updated, grab coffee, comfy headset and put on some synthwave or metal.
An accompanying deadline looms overhead, but we try not to think about that.
