I don't know what got into me today but what could be a lazy day ended up being me going crazy making ....stuff.
Perhaps it's just the idea of doing some positive, enjoyable things when the world out there seems kind of dark right now. Not sure, but in either case, sharing some of that day here, just for fun.
Making Stuff, Chapter 1: "And Then, There Were Tarts"
I don't bake that much (because I almost never eat wheat or sugar), but it is the season for apples, and I always wanted to make a tarte aux pommes! Granted, 'tis a wee bit rustic because someone (ok, ME), didn't centre it properly. I just started layering apples and it ended up where it did. The glaze was a bit of spicy chutney and rum - no other added sugar.
It's so good. However, Juhani likes things sweeter than I do. I know he'd prefer some ice cream with it, but I like the flavour of the fruit - bright and a bit lemony. Who's with me? Nom.
Making Stuff, Chapter 2: "And Then, I Uploaded to YouTube"
Got back into digital composing recently, and on a whim, I decided to combine one of my pieces, "Dreamstealer", with some ISS-NASA/ESA artwork and footage. I've never uploaded to YouTube before, so I'm a little terrified, but if you like footage like this, and enjoy dark/ambient synth stuff, maybe you'll like it? No obligation, I swear. (I'd send you some tart as a bribe, but I fear it won't survive the post.)
Anyway, here's hoping next week is good for you, and thank you for stopping by.
