I've done a very poor job adhering to my schedule today. I'm still in the spring break mentality and not really wanting to work. I worked hard Monday and Tuesday. I'm not sure what happened today. At any rate, I need to remember to make myself write some Lisp, Haskell, or Python for fun this weekend. I should also probably write some C# for school.
Three quick things I stumbled on today that made me happy:Joe Marshall continuing to talk about his history with lisp
, how he found it, etc.lib6502 by Ian Piumarta
. I keep hearing that the 6502 had a really nice ISA
and I'm considering whether an eventual fun project (like 5 or more years out) might be to write a basic lisp or scheme interpreter targeting the 6502. Maybe I could get away with working on it some in an Architecture or Programming Language Concepts course. Somehow it sounds tricky/crazy. Could I write one in 5 months? I'm still an idiot. Maybe I won't be in a year or so.
Last, there's some interesting guitar modeling software for PC...and articles about how to emulate other people's guitar setups, including John Mayer
. Now, that may sound ridiculous...but here's something else that makes me happy that not many people know. John Mayer can play the everloving shit out of his guitar
. There are a lot of little Stevie-isms in there. As in the late great Stevie Ray Vaughan
, whom I dearly love. Is there anyone besides Mayer that's keeping the SRV style alive today that I should know about?
I'm still more interested in sampling than being a guitarist myself but I like to noodle now and again. Speaking of which, go back and listen to the first Gorillaz album
. Great, right? :)
