11YO went off to his first summer camp this morning. I miss him already even though I’m not even home from work yet.

It’s a camp specifically for kids with autism, so it’s a big deal for most of the kids… and their parents. Letting go is harder when you’re so intensely On It all the time.

Keep thinking I should watch Hackers again, for the zillionth time. Its anniversary is rolling around again in a few weeks.

When you and your buddy have different tastes in fashion and music but you still get along and make each other laugh at the end of the day :)

This week felt so long and yet it’s all a blur. At least I feel less of a jet lagged disaster today, after taking yesterday off.

Then there’s the wacky proto-80s new wave, electronics, art pop, pomp rock, and… stuff that I like: Meatloaf, Billy Joel, Kraftwerk, Kate Bush, Queen, Blondie, John Prine, etc.

Think of all the punk and post-punk: Joy Division, Misfits, Stiff Little Fingers, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Devo, Buzzcocks, The Undertones, The Clash, Tubeway Army, The Damned, etc.

Almost impossible for me to pick one favourite song from the year I was born (1978) because most of my favourite music was from around then.

The kids are watching a new Invader Zim movie. I haven’t even seen Invader Zim. They’re going to be more mall goth than I ever was at this rate.

Watching a video about Old Town Road that explains it’s based on a Nine Inch Nails sample from 34 Ghosts IV. What?! Jesus, so it is! Once you know, you can’t unhear it.

Still so punch drunk with jet lag all day. I’ve been sleeping fine and my routine is only off by a few hours but I’m completely out of it.

If you've never had the chance to watch Moomin before, the original animated series is now available on YouTube! 👀 some countries are blocked, though. It feels so weird to hear this in English, who are they

Both my kids know the Fibonacci sequence because I set it as the password for an iPad at some point.

Speaking of the Fibonacci sequence, I just remembered that I used to play the Rockabye Baby version of Lateralus to the older kid when he was a baby. He didn’t seem to particularly like those albums but it amused me. youtu.be/V2dJZG18CKM
