I’m nearly finished migrating servers to a better spec and different OS.
I mainly use my server for my personal domain’s email, wordress, owncloud, and phpbb. Installed and got everything working. Just need to finish up installign owncloud. This time around I ditched phpbb to try out mybb. I’ve read reviews that the permission related GUI is easier and more efficient compared to phpbb. Hopefully this decision was right!
I decided to dig through some old scifi movies I’ve missed in the past. Mars Attacks’ cover was definitely one of the strong ones in my memory so decided to give this a go. I didn’t even know the director was Tim Burton. I enjoy all Tim Burton’s films. I began to watch the movie with that Burton expectation.
A well-paced culty fun film! I believe it’s worth spending some time to watch this if you haven’t already.
Sidechain compressing to tuck sound for the kick is a common technique, and this is something I have practiced. Now I found something even better! LFOtool, this vst plugin allows you to do the tucking without actually adding a sidechain signal track separately.
Are you a 64 bit Windows user having trouble importing .mov/.mp4 files into Ableton Live? Well, I certainly did. But not to worry, here’s an easy solution. Just have to help out Ableton and Windows with the proper codec treatment. Link is above, download and install the 2 files as instructed!
Into Apple Pie? You should try out Granny Smith Apple Pie & Coffee. I didn’t visit the actual store but instead test ordered via Uber Eats. Tabelog’s rating looked promising, and the Apple Pie DID live up to its reputation.
I wanted to watch Sing once this was available for rental. Just as expected, a fun piece but average and nothing that leaves you thinking about the movie the next day. I felt the same way with Pets so I didn’t bother going to the theater for this one. I’d still recommend it as a movie to just kick back and watch.
Being a Minion fan, I had to go watch this. It ranks 3rd place out of the previous series, but nevertheless fun and enjoying. So, I wanted to know if everyone else was on the same page for ranking.
Here’s what I found on IMDB: (As of today)
Despicable Me 1 – 7.7
Despicable Me 2 – 7.4
Despicable Me 3 – 6.4
