I'm trying to arrange my song "Free like the Way" with #Ardour. Here's a snippet. What I always notice is that whenever I use headphones to sing my voice isn't as good as when I sing without headphones. Somehow the feedback is different and affects my voice in a bad way.

This is a weird conflict of interests when you say:
"Our mission is to ensure the Internet is a global public resource, open and accessible to all. An Internet that truly puts people first, where individuals can shape their own experience and are empowered, safe and independent."
and to do that almost all of your money is ad money from ad companies who's primary objective is to manipulate and track users

Since apps on the mobile OS can show ads directly the ad companies prefer this model. On the desktop everything hinges on the browser.

Do you know why #adblocking is not getting built directly into the browsers? It's because the popular browsers are driven mostly by ad money. #Firefox gets a large part of it's money from #Google (default search) which is an ad company. And of course #Chrome is built by Google itself. They have no incentive to kill their own business. But the sword is looming...
It's so deep. Unlike anything you can hear almost anywhere today, except of course some of the other tracks of my Native American playlist 😀
#depression Show more
I was depressed over the last few days. I soon realized that it is because of loneliness. My friends had other things to do and I'm not working currently (until 3rd of June) so I meet few people. Being confronted with the loneliness I was trying to find a solution. I have been following the guidance of my heart a lot in the last weeks and I realized now that I'm not alone at all even if it seems like that. I do have a helper inside. Being aware of that is medicine against loneliness.
Hey you! (Open for love.) Show more
You are beautiful and deserving of love.
The way you are.
I hope your day (or night 😉) is full of love and gentleness.

Another #improvisation from this morning...
For the past month or so, I've been updating my web design. It isn't quite finished, but it was close enough to publish. It's missing a few things I really want (like a functional tag system) but it's also a little less broken than my old Ikiwiki-based design, so it seemed time to do it.
The "stories, songs and other madness" is text that I have on my business cards, but had been missing from the site.
Finished with a new #song I call "Free like the Way". I miss out a bit on the feeling now recording it but that often happens when I'm finally done with a song 😎
Love is what I need
Love is what I heed
Love is what I feed upon
If only there wouldn't be -
So much distraction
To nourish that little spark
That illuminates the dark
Is now the aim for me
And here's my #youtube playlist with the best native American songs I have found (I'm still adding more...): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLfkMI0hPH-3U_CC9DiPMc2zBYdn8Y_uq4
Tried to copy the native American music now 8)
Somehow I stumbled on traditional native American round dances or powwows. I'm so touched. I can't explain. This music touches and heal the soul.
Here are a few examples:
I started working on a new song, lyrics so far:
Now that I'm free like the Way
I'm not seeking outside
The monsters will hide
From my view
Trapped in a door of suspension
There is nothing to mention
The matter is through
Just listen to the stream it's flowing
There's nothing obstructing its going
Feeling the cool of the shadow
The grass is greener on this side
