Last week I discovered Royal Blood and was blown away! Just check out this festival gig:
They’re only a duo – a drummer and a bassist (!) – but produce an impressive (and innovative) sound. Have not seens anything quite like it. It’s like The White Stripes meet Muse and it’s brilliant!
I just learned about the CSS
scroll-behavior property and immediately applied it to a site. Super simple JS-independent smooth scrolling. :-)
Last year, I acquired a few new cameras. One of them was a Yashica FR1 (or FRI, as it’s often written as) with a selection of lenses. It was a random opportunity. And I took it. Here are some first images taken with the 24mm lens I bought with it.
Ok, enough with the meta-posts. Here’s some actual content for a change. It’s on the other site, though: Photos from March of this year are up in the photo journal.
While this site is new and super-simple, I thought I add an automatic “dark mode” real quick.
Added syntax highlighting now, too. Since Jekyll generates the necessary markup out of the box, it was simply a matter of choosing an additional stylesheet, including it, and making a few more adjustments.
I have now added the ability to display responsive images. And I write a little bit about how I do it using the tools I run the build this site.
A quick overview of how this site is hosted at the moment.
I was actually thinking that I might have seen enough Opeth gigs by now. But no! Last night in Cologne was the best one I’ve been to (yet)! Great setlist, great light show, and – as always – great musicianship. Very happy we went.
It’s the time of year where I generally push my films to ISO 1600. And that means I now need to slightly readjust my brain again for guessing exposure.
And in April it’s all back to ISO 400 again.
There’s a new entry up in “The Photo Journal”: February 2019.
I made a little bookmarklet to hide Instagram’s login prompt and re-enable scrolling, so I can keep browsing Instagram pages. I call it “Fuck you, Instagram!” or “FUI” for short.
In the last two weeks, I had some bad film development results. This is a little article about what I think went wrong.
Went to see Machine Head yesterday. It was the “Burn my Eyes” 25th anniversary tour and so they played that album in its entirety, in the almost original lineup: Logan Mader on guitar, Chris Kontos on drums, and of course Robb Flynn. Would have loved to see Adam Duce, too, but I guess one can’t have everything. Anyhow: I had a great time, even joining a few circle pits.
Here’s the full show on Youtube.
I have a new site! It’s truly indie now. No more reliance on Tumblr. And I’m pretty happy about that! So, danielpietzsch.com is going to be my virtual home for the foreseeable future.
