Alison Cotton – Behind The Spiderweb Gate (2019) I get a lot of these reco’s from The Wire, and by the time they make it to my ears I’ve kind of forgotten what the reviewer had to say about them, or sometimes the context in which they’re recorded. True also for this one, although I […]

I’ve been learning React and it’s hard. I’ve been making web sites since ’98 or so, but I tend to stay a couple years behind on learning certain technologies. (This filters out some fads, and frees up some of my time to work on music, hang out with people, have a life.) So, by the […]
