  • 🎵My new 🎸 cover (Dream Theater’s Erotomania), with a short introduction of what it means to me, is about to be premiered on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch

  • 🚨New music video coming up. After 20 years, I can finally play the guitar parts in Dream Theater’s Erotomania, not perfectly but good enough to leave it behind me. It’s probably the most technical piece I’ve mastered yet. The video premiers Monday at 11:30EST.

  • This British YouTuber released a new song, recorded in his home, in which he played all the instruments and sang all the vocals. If only he had a band of musicians around him, he could go places and become successful. Be sure to check it out.

  • Why did we call our dog Sparky and not… Barky?

  • A music track I won’t release, so take a listen

    I wrote and recorded this riff-based part a couple of months ago and thought of making it an instrumental track. But at the same time I’ve been writing a new song and eventually decided to use the riff from here for the new song. So I’m happy to post this recording, as it’s something that won’t get released after that. Now, time l to start producing this new song. I’m calling it “Spares”.

  • Is it some kind of an amazing SEO hack by Amazon? A lookup on a price (at least in Euros) presents an ad from Amazon. 🤯

  • We finished watching “The Queen Gambit”. Enjoyed it a lot. As a former chess player, in my elementary school years, there was a lot to remember, while watching it, about the world of chess, which was quite fun for me. Great acting and decor.

  • Today, in the App Store: “Our Top 10 Strategy Games”. All 10 are “pay to win” kind of games with game currency. That’s not what strategy games are supposed to be. They are supposed to be equal opportunity to all so that the best strategist wins. Shame.

  • TIL there’s Ontario, CA. No, it’s not the Ontario province in Canada. It’s a place in California. This can get confusing.
