I’m a Marvel fan. I read Strange as a kid, I’ve watched all the MCU movies, the Marvel shows on ABC (Agent Carter, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and all the Marvel shows on Netflix. Even before Iron Fist’s release date was announced, I knew I’d be watching it as soon as it came out.
It’s been out for a few months now; I think spoilers are fine now so it’s time for a quick review! If you haven’t watched it yet be warned: spoilers ahead!
6 years today. ❤️ We celebrated with a nice family brunch and obviously we had to watch our wedding videos once again! 😊
The Celtic Social Club releases a new album today, A New Kind OF Freedom! If you like Celtic music or just want to discover a mix of traditional Breton, Irish, Scottish, Cornish, and Welsh songs, often with a twist of Rock, Blues, or even Reggae, you’ll want to listen to their new album! It’s available on iTunes, Spotify, and Apple Music.
Here is a live concert to give you a little intro. Enjoy!
The Good Wife was one of my favourite TV shows. I liked the characters, the “case of the week”, the backstory, the little touches of humour here and there. When CBS announced that they were launching a spinoff, I was obviously very curious. As it turns out, they did a pretty good job with The Good Fight.
There is time-lapse… And there is time-lapse.
This 3-minute introduction of New York (Manhattan, really) is just impressive. The visuals, the sounds, the transitions, … Can you make a better promo video for any city?
Be sure to check their other time-lapse videos; the team is from Austria and their videos about Vienna and Austria are just stunning.
I’ve used image sharing software for the past 5 years: CloudApp, Cloudup, Droplr, I tried them all. Those apps are great to quickly share screenshots, annotated images, gifs, or even screencasts with users. Sometimes, an image is worth a thousand words. :)
When I switched to Linux for my February challenge, I set out to find a cross-platform alternative to all those services. Here is what I came up with.
I don’t know much about anime, but I’ve always really enjoyed Hayao Miyazaki’s films. Nausicaä, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky, My Neighbor Totoro, are all films I want to show my daughter when she grows up. I like Miyazaki’s takes on the interactions between humans and nature, and his style in general.
So of course, when I discovered this mixtape with samples from all those movies, I jumped on it!
I’m really looking forward to watching this movie! Stephen King’s Dark Tower is one of my favourite epic stories, and I really like both Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey.
I discovered Luna Lee today; she plays a traditional Korean instrument named “Gayageum”, and her covers are simply amazing! Here is her take on Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World (although I must confess I only knew Nirvana’s Unplugged version until today).
Enjoy, and make sure to visit her channel if you like the style!
Working for Automattic is pretty great. Not only is the work fun and challenging, I also get to travel quite a bit. In the past few years, I’ve discovered San Francisco, Pune, Kauai, Dublin, and many other interesting places.
This month I added two more cities to my list: Madrid, Spain, and Albuquerque, New Mexico. I didn’t take many pictures in Madrid, but I know my colleague Donncha will keep adding more pictures from our trip to his photo blog in the next few months. 😊
I did, however, take a few pictures in Albuquerque.
