Is there an Untappd for music? I should be getting some good badges for this.

Something’s up with my Mastodon instance, can’t upload images anymore. The woes of self-hosting.

At Haw Par Villa for the ASEAN Music Showcase Festival. It’s very hot. First up is indie rock band Cheats 🇵🇭

Our ageing robot vacuum cleaner, Blinky, doesn’t work as well as he used to. But I don’t have the heart to say goodbye 😢

Got this today - A500 mini, a replica of my childhood computer that plays games off USB. It's so cute 😍

More live entertainment this weekend, starting with Animal Farm @ Wild Rice Funan 🐷

Did a test run of switching to iOS (final stage of de-googling), found some issues:

1. Can't use a custom search engine in Safari, can't use extensions with Firefox(?)
2. No rclone app (cloud drive)
3. Bank app refused to activate, would need to call them 😞

Going to see Cosmic Armchair tonight, a synthpop band from Singapore!

off to see Sigur Ros. first gig since Opeth in 2019. too long!

that Sigur Ros album with 400 tracks is quite inconvenient when scrolling through Spotify
