At the beginning of this year, I decided to lose some weight. And when the lockdowns started happening, that really propelled me forward in this respect. Well, I must say at least my fitness project is something that’s been very positive for me this year. I’ve reached my weight loss goal and I’m, so far, managing to hold weight and gain muscles at the same time. And now there’s a second lockdown on the way. So it can only get even better.

Springsteen’s new album Letter To You is out. I’d missed it because I’ve been pretty busy. I’m not completely sure what to think of it yet. Well aside from what a shame it is that we have an E Street album and there’s no way for the boys to go on tour with it.

What I can say is that the Song for Orphans is an instant classic. Probably because it was originally written for Born to Run.

Now don’t you grow on empty legends or lonely cradle songs
Billy the Kid was just a bowery boy who made a living twirling his guns
The night she’s long and lanky and she speaks in a mother tongue
She lullabies the refugees with an amplifier’s hum

So break me now big Mama as Old Faithful breaks the day
Believe me my good Linda, the aurora will shine the way
The Confederacy’s in my name now, the hounds are held at bay
The axis needs a stronger arm, do you feel your muscles play

I had originally planned to record – and stream – an episode of The Private Citizen today at 17:00 CET. Sadly, I won’t be able to do this as I’m too busy today with other work. I will try again tomorrow at the same time. I’m sorry if you had planned to watch the stream today. I just couldn’t get the show prepared in time. I hope you’ll be able to watch it tomorrow.

I’m trying something new here. Let’s start off by explaining why I will try and do social and political commentary in video form from now on. And why I think social media doesn’t work right now, what the press has to do with that and how it all came to a head this year with the pandemic.

It’s been ages since I had a fixed IRC channel to hang out in and I was kind of missing it. Just hanging out in botnet C&C channels gets boring after a while. Therefore, on a whim, I’ve created #fabindustries on Freenode. Feel free to drop by if you want to chat about the stuff I’m doing day-to-day.
