Downloaded the homebrew simulator on switch. As a homebrew we was keen to see how they did it. They did a good job , but 3 hours in I realized I was doing all the shit I do in real life but without the beer to drink at the end.
I’m not playing in gigging bands anymore. 2 young kids and I’m in my late 40s. Just couldn’t be bothered with the hassle vs the reward.
I still have past band mates doing it in other bands. They say it’s gotten worse with people at gigs , and it was fucking terrible before. So I can only imagine.
In metal , meshuggah for me.
Still on regular gym rotation. After not enjoying violet Sleep much , and am really enjoying it.

Listened to new porcupine tree allot ...
I have a 50 that I use as my house / small

It’s def an interesting platform. I haven’t used it...
Different conversation but i Don’t think metal is anywhere near as divese as it likes to hold itself. You are talking subtleties across most of these mini genres that only someone really Into It would pick up on.
There was even a comment on this thread about certain guitars not looking metal...
Got around to sitting through the new dr strange movie. May just be the worst movie in the entire franchise. The story , if you call it that , is just an excuse to do a bunch of multiverse shit. Some of those scenes were
Cool , but didn’t carry a whole movie.
Finally got around to finishing peacemaker. I liked it. It got better as it went allong , and they actually explored the characters. Which these days you don’t always feel that they do.
Also coming up on the end of a breaking bad re watch. Had only watched the whole thing once when it came...
