New year fireworks outside Australia are awesome!

I was in a small town outside of Zurich a few years ago for NYE. Her house is slightly higher than her town and you could face any direction from there and the horizon was a sea of fireworks. At my cousins unit in the middle of Vienna he took a video 360 degrees and it’s the same. It’s just everyones personal fireworks everywhere. Brazil is the same as this video shows from a plane.

And Amsterdam

The first 3 minutes.

We were out at a party last night and whilst walking up the stairwell to the top floor we ran into one of the guitarists. He said hi to us and the usual name exchange went on. And then that first question most people ask was different.

Glen asked “What’s your passion?”

Such a better question than “….. and what do you do?”

Glens passion was making music and he was presently writing a screenplay.

For many it’s a much more difficult thing to answer. My passion at the moment is designing and building planes.

Either way. It’s a great question to ask next time you meet someone new. “What’s your passion?”

Question for Linux music nerds like myself?

This post will prompt me to get Akismet or something antispam happening here so people cna reply on these posts.

The question:

What’s the best option you’ve found for streaming music via Webdav:// or sftp:// which works cross platform including touch screen devices?

Possibilities:

Cloudbeats

Rhythmbox using an sftp mount (Fairly automatic from Caja in Mint 19.1,)

VLC half looks like it wants to, but more has an option for a UDP stream. I’ve not tested this yet. Thing is that it doesn’t have a column browser like Rhythmbox or Itunes.

 

Timelapse

Time lapse really gives the world a different point of view. It makes everything somehow look smaller.

Which lead into this guys project of taking footage of Antarctica and projecting it onto a building (The Auckland War Museum). It’s interesting what people become obsessed with.
