tons of good music and lovely evenings aligned
the stuff I believe in, it’s bluntly sweeping your mind
concerts supreme, no matter a ride to the stars
another great memory forever burnt into my heart
the stories we shared, lessons we learned, they’d suffice
why couldn’t it stay, because it was rather nice by itself

you said you don’t remember a thing
and while you blame all those drinks
I’d say love is never free
all kingdoms burst eventually


About the Unknown

Tell me a secret
Tell me anything
What’s your weapon?
What’s your middle name?
What do you believe in?
What’s your animal?
Are you a cat or a dog person?
What’s your outlook?
What’s your favourite saying?

Hey, maybe you’ll laugh
Maybe you laugh a lot
And maybe you started
But you somehow quit the part
Or you may be a hippie and a democrat
Yeah I remember that, I think
And you might like wine
But you’re not the type who likes to drink


About Distractions

Trying to create something that’s not there.
A spark I saw as a bomb is just a means to an end.
And I was just so happy to be out of my shell again,
don’t think that I really cared for who or what.
So for now I’ll just have to keep it shut.
If you’re not ready, you’re not ready.
Please, stop acting like you are.
How could I know that everything you say
are lies about devotion and desire?
And I know the spark inside your eyes was just
the match I used to set myself on fire.


Does Anyone Know A Band Called Diaco?

Someone dropped 4 files into my shared folder at Audiogalaxy more than 12 years ago, and to this day I never found out where these Diaco guys came from. The writing, performance, and quality is incredible, but the Internet never knew them. I’m not sharing them in the hopes somebody will come forward. Instead, I’ll share them because the recordings are simply too valuable to be forgotten! My personal favourite is Alone In The Dark, closely followed by Lindsay.


libpeak: Basic PCAP and ERF Support in C

Hello, this is a short service announcement. I have pushed PCAP and ERF file reader support, slowly turning peak into libpeak: a network-related base infrastructure for C projects in userland. May somebody find it useful, entertaining or better than pulling in libpcap just for the sake of skimming through trace files. That’s all for now. Really.

About Listening

It’s all too easy to blame the listener or ‘audience’ in a meeting or social setting when they disagree, or — in your eyes — have missed the point. Your ‘performance’ has not struck the right chord — you didn’t pick up the body language signals that suggested doubt, uncertainty or hostility on their part, and so your lack of awareness precluded you from even trying to rectify the situation.
