People and Playlists

Ha. So I’m a mood which I have designated “infatuated”, and wanted some music to match.

I tried Last.fm, with tag “Love songs” which sucked. Also, some soppy artists’ stations, which transpired also not to be my thing. Then I decided I had enough music to put a good playlist together from my collection, ranging from Depeche Mode to Britney Spears, to Avantasia, Yellowcard, Greenday, and Franz Ferdinand. So pretty much all of my favourite artists.

It is much better than the procedurally generated offerings.

I spent the middle part of yesterday with my good friend Edward. My teaching him guitar is merely an excuse for our meetings, which are far more widespread in topical coverage. Oh, also he bought Minecraft by the time I left. That’s 4 sales I am directly responsible for now; if only spreading the good news of Christ was as easy as spreading sales of a game where you can beat a sheep to death with bacon and set fire to skeletons from the windows of your hand-built fortress.

Speaking of which, I spent an hour talking with some Jehovah’s witnesses in my porch yesterday. It was good, and there was mutual understanding all around.

Right now, I am developing a guide to the latest paid version of Minecraft, which we call “infdev”, partly inspired by the fact that most new buyers (like Eds) would find it hard to set out. It’ll be out in a few days I suppose.

Dan and Melissa’s wedding tommorrow, which will bring a satisfying closure to all of the stress (other people’s) that I have been made aware of during preparations. I am super-happy for them, too, because they’re a very sweet couple, and awesome people in isolation, for example, I was under the impression for a long time that Dan was the last word in cool. Perhaps he still is.

END.
