Loney Dear

Recently, I ran across "Loney, Noir" by Loney Dear on an old hard drive, it was one of my favorite albums ten years ago. I went to listen to it on Spotify, and what do you know, he has a new album. It's going to be another favorite.

Need a show to binge watch over the holiday break? Might I suggest Godless, loving it so far.

It’s not that you need to hustle to survive, it’s that you seek the hustle to thrive, and still at the expense of yourself and others.

Always love what David Heinemeier Hansson has to say.

I stumbled onto Jeffrey Martin tonight and just had to stop everything I was doing and listen to a few albums straight through. Great way to end the week.

Chris Stapleton

Getting this cloudy Fall Friday started off with a little Chris Stapleton. I love a good cover, and Chris does a great job with "Last Thing I Needed, First Thing This Morning", a song made famous by Willie Nelson.

I like this one:

Enthusiasm is my superpower. One might say that confidence yields the same results. I disagree. Confidence is about yourself, enthusiasm is about something else. Confidence is impressive, but enthusiasm is infectious. Confidence is serious, enthusiasm is fun.

Oris ChronOris Date

I'm in love with the Oris ChronOris Date. It's strikes the perfect balance between subtlety and uniqueness. I also find it refreshing that it has a 39mm case, and is 43mm lug to lug. Here's a video overview from Worn and Wound.

I'll probably never own an Oris due to the price, so I was excited to see Seiko release the SRPB13, which has a similar aesthetic. Unfortunately, Seiko made it 44mm wide, which is too big for my taste.

Seiko mod

This mod of a Seiko SNK turned out amazing! It uses the dial of a SKX, and hands from Dagaz. It's perfect if you want a diver look without the bulk.

Mapbox has an interesting idea that helps people decide where to go based on direction/time, not literal geography. The map directions are only displayed once a destination is selected.

I love The Engine, a site recently launched by MIT. The attention to detail is perfect; it's easy to explore, yet not boring. It also looks fantastic on all devices. Illustration and animation by Vasjen Katro.

Zenith Defy Lab

Zenith has introduced the new Defy Lab watch, which they say is the most accurate mechanical watch ever made. It runs at a frequency five-times greater than a standard mechanical watch and has a 60-hour power reserve. I'm also loving the material it's made from, which is called aeronith. It's an ultra-light aluminum composite that looks a bit like concrete. The price? Just $31,000 if you want one of the first 10. See a video overview from aBlogtoWatch.

If you're just learning Hugo like me, you may want to start with Go's template documentation. The conditional sytax tripped me up for a minute. If you're accustomed to writing conditionals like this:

if ($x == $y)
if ($x && $y)
if ($x == $y || $x == $z)

This is how it would look in a Go template:

{{ if eq $x $y }}
{{ if and $x $y }}
{{ if or (eq $x $y) (eq $x $z) }}

In a Go template, eq is a function that you pass arguments to, not a comparison operator like you would use in JavaScript.

Welp, this site has just been switched over to Hugo! There's still some template cleanup I want to do, but overall it was fairly simple to migrate from Jekyll.

I gave Hugo a test run today, and I'm loving it so far. It seems very powerful, and so easy to setup. I may be switching from Jekyll soon.
