Panzerballett - X-Mas Death Jazz (2017)
A classic of the genre and the album that led me to discovering the scene. Crazy and wild!

I've been listening to all morning. Started with ByoNoiseGenerator and have now moved onto my Galactic Mechanics discography. is a criminally ignored metal genre, some of it is so amazing, the contrast between the 2 styles. ;D

Just came across this article on Quillette, 'Book Burning at Midnight, May 10th, 1933'. Even a few years ago, I could never imagine such anti-intellectual, philistine, behaviour taking place in the West, especially in Universities. How wrong I was. We live in dangerous times, where knowledge is to be feared & people are afraid to say what they think. Could it be in my lifetime, we finally witness the death o f the west?

Have people seen this? CyberOS, based on Gnome 40 & Arch, still very much in the Alpha stage from what I can see. Its heavily configured reminding one of the DeepIn environment at first glance. It looks interesting and its definitely worth a spin in a virtual machine -> 😜

The Left Continues to Destroy Itself and Others With Evidence-Free Destruction of Reputations

Of course the only problem is that I was a member/followed about 200 Telegram groups and am now totally inundated with glorious, juicy data ; )

OMG At last! After almost a month I finally got Telegram or a variation thereof workig just fine and dandy. Compiling the Telegram Desktop failed, but I built the kotatogram-dev-git package in the AUR and it works like a charm :archlinux: 😍 😆 😜

One thing that's pretty cool is that I can compile Telegram-Desktop while using Whalebird and listening to Angelspit on Cmus. A very well-tuned system )

I'm having loads of rouble with Telegram. I'm using Garuda Linux with i3. All was well until a couple of weeks ago. I don't own a smart phone (paranoia) so I would enter my burner no. and they would text me my access code. Now I get to the stage where I enter my phone no. but then it just freezes. I cant think of anything. As we speak I'm compiling Telegram-Desktop from scratch with the plan being to create my own data files. I've no idea if this will work...

Happy to listen to any good ideas!

Wow, my partner is so wonderful! I've been sitting here all morning banging my head against the wall trying to ix my my i3 status bar and she popped out without saying a thing and came back with espresso and pastries. She said I looked borderline demented and needed a break. How sweet is that? 😁 😍

I've fallen in love with . from now on, every set-up I do will have . My new set-up wouldn't boot this morning, so I picked an earlier snapshot and everything worked like a charm. : D

After my last Arch fuckup, I've been distro-hopping and have settled on Ubuntu for the last few months. 20.04 was pretty buggy and I ended up changing to Groovy Gorilla 20.10 which is really rock solid and despite being an Arch user for 6 years, I have to admit, it's an excellent distro. Now, i'm going to try dual-booting with Garuda Linux -> , a nice looking Arch distro, no effort required, all you have to do is install. I'm going to try the Gnome version : )

Which reminds me, today is the 50th anniversary of Yukio Mishima's attempt at seizing power in Japan and eventual death by harakiri. Whatever you may think of the man and his politics, he was undoubtedly one of Japan's greatest writer's of the 20th C & I can't recommend him highly enough.

Holy Shit! Just discovered that Laibach released an album 'Also Sprach Zarathustra' in 2017! I'm listening to it now for the first time and it's so very Laibach (Laibach fans will get what I mean). I read Thus Spake Zarathustra almost 30yrs as I hitch-hiked around the country, smoking weed and looking for answers to so many things. To be honest I think I was too young to truly appreciate Nietzsche's writing at the time. I hope this album will make me take another go.

I completely forgot about my Mastodon a/c. It's been computer chaos of late. I had a problem with my Arch laptop overheating and not for love nor money could I fix it. I'm not an expert but I'm no means a noob as I've been using Arch happily for about 6yrs but this drove me fucking crazy. In the end I ended up distro hopping for a couple of weeks and settled with Ubuntu 20.04.1. It's really stable, everything just works, there's a reasonably good selection of software. It's all good. 😛

Listening to Neneh Cherry & The Thing (free-form jazz) covering Iggy & the Stooges 'Dirt' and Neneh Cherry makes Iggy Pop sound like a schoolboy. Her voice has so much resonance , almost a tactile-presence. This one has to be listened to! :D
