    Something farcical just happened.
    A couple of weeks ago my wife was contacted by a media outlet (not sure if I should name them or not), and they wanted her to do a TV interview about the American border wall and how it could practically be build.
     
    Now, she's an engineer, but she pretty much only design bridges and skyscrapers. Not walls. She even explained that to them during the initial phone call, but they insisted that she come any way.
     
    Today was the day of the interview, and they were somehow surprised by the fact that she doesn't design walls and that she could only give theoretical comments. This surprise lead them to cancel the interview.

    Well, I just found out I have some games in my Steam inventory that I don't need. If anyone is interested in either The Witcher: Enhanced Edition or XCOM: Enemy Unknown just throw me a friend request. 
     
    Neither game is all that expensive, nor are they very recent, but both are really good games.

    Just saw one of my old friends is teaching at my daughters school. 
    Gave me the gnarliest case of cognitive dissonance. Like, dude, not ten years ago I saw you take mysterious pills you found on the street under the guise that they might make you high, and now you're teaching algebra to children.

    A thing that's almost criminally overlooked in history is the fact that most royal dynasties in Europe were plagued by haemophilia due to inbreeding. Banging your relatives lead to royalty bleeding to death until the late 19th century.
     
    And the honorable mention goes to a lot of dynasties also suffering from Mandibular Prognathism I.e their lower jaws protruded so much that they had problems eating and speaking.
     
    Going to a royal court in Europe in 1678 must have been like being a cast member in Deliverance.

    I tried starting a side hustle making EDM templates, hip-hop beats and just general electronic music.
    Not anything major, but just something to maybe make a bit of money off my leftovers.
     
    I had my first client a couple of weeks ago and I made some samples for him. Today he contacted me in regards to me removing my watermark from my tracks, since he had been unsuccessful doing so.
    I'll say that again. He came to me, asking for my help in stealing my own work, because he couldn't manage it on his own.
    I think my side hustle should just be educating people on how not to be caught stealing intellectual property.

    Intersting day at the office and the days has barely started.
    My morning started out with an E-mail from a rapper (which is certainly a first) that wanted to record vocals in my studio and wanted me to create some beats. 
    Apparently he had found some techno I made years ago, like what he heard and then found out I ran a home studio.
     
    The conversation went very well untill we had to discuss the price. He was only willing to pay me in promotion and exposure. 
    After I stated that my price is fair, and that whatever exposure he could provide me wouldn't be worth it, I haven't heard back.
