Obama's been a horrible disappointment in so many ways (Guantamo, Snowden, not removing the Patriot Act), but man can the guy deliver a speech. Most charismatic US president since Kennedy.

Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, essentially encouraging an adversarial foreign power’s cyberspying on a secretary of state’s correspondence.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, staring directly into the cameras. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Hopefully not in that sense. That would be some terrible competition.

A Finnish techno guy called Samuli Kemppi, who I'm acquintances with, travels most weekend to gigs, on top of having a family and working weeks at a desk job. Plus he produces quite a lot music over the year. And has a weekly radio show. How he manages it I don't understand.

I know I'll never acchieve fame, but with a wife with time consuming hobbies of her own (which I'm not jealous about), and no kids coming I think I can keep doing this DJ thing for quite some time yet.

Having had a summer where I'm playing every weekend, a lot of them Friday and Saturday (humble brag), with a full week of work in between I do think I need to trim it down to max three gigs a month when I get back to work at the end of August (YAY FOR SCANDINAVIAN 4 WEEK HOLIDAYS!).

This actually looks pretty tempting. It's clear that the user feedback from the DB-series mixers has been "it's too complicated" judging by how many times the guy says it's really easy to use.

My ego is too big as it is while being just a random joe. I'd hate to think what sort of a monster I'd be with a bit of fame.

A friend of mine commented on Trump's acceptance speech quite well IMO: "Crime is down, but people FEEL unsafe. It's pretty fucking scary when someone's answer to FACTS is that a FEELING is more important and more of a fact than facts themselves.

..is your friend John Oliver by any chance? That's almost a verbatim quote from him.

Shit. He probably stole it from him. big_smile

Finished Stranger Things today. We watched the last 6 episodes in a row. Absolutely brilliant.

The best part was him touching his daughter in a way that wasn't exactly fatherly.

Just checked, my friend lives 2 kms away from Watergate, and it's a straight line from there. If I get lost going home I'll know it was a good night.

Continued with this, and it actually gets pretty damn good after the first 30 minutes. He should've just skipped those from the broadcast.

First three seasons are good, though they too get steadily worse. The rest are absolute garbage.

I wonder how many homeless people will be killed by the death squads before this is over.

If you were a kid in the 80's Netflix's Stranger Things is for you. It's like a lovechild of Stephen King and Steven Spielberg of the early 80's. Never seen the period of time done that well after the fact. The attention to detail is amazing.

Listened to the first 30 minutes, stopped there. Must be one of those "had to be there" gigs.

Skipping Berghain. Couldn't take the humiliation of being turned away.

Thanks Dave. Be seeing you in a week.

Ruede Hagelstein doing the warm up, Animal Trainer headlining the other room. That's probably not Rocco.

I'm a man of simple tastes, strawberry for me, or if I'm feeling like a loose cannon, pistachio.
