Back in May, I went to Primavera Sound and bought this limited-edition screen-printed Queens of the Stone Age poster, for no other reason than that it was pretty; I loved the colours, the typography and the simplicity of the image. At that time, Kat and I didn’t have any plans to move in together but yesterday, five months after buying that poster, we put it up on one of the walls of our living room. It felt nice.
We started buying our first stuff together soon after I moved in (so far, a juice maker and a sound system – up next, a new couch and a TV) and she’s really making sure our place feels like home, for both of us. This comes with small compromises on each side, of course, but there’s nothing to worry about… we’re pretty good at figuring shit out.

Yesterday, we got an e-mail from the design studio that was supposed to help us developing that game app saying that due to a tremendous amount of work on their side, they were not going to be able to put the focus that is needed for the project to succeed. Fair enough. At the end of the day, money-making work needs to take a priority and although it’s a real shame to know they want out, their position is understandable. Now we need to start looking again for someone who might be up for helping us out with the development of the game, which is a pain in the arse, but hopefully something will come up soon.
In other news, I have registered the domain for another of the projects I have on my to-do list and tomorrow will be doing a really short presentation at Podio, where I will be pitching the idea to whoever shows up and see what happens. I only have 3-5 minutes and my powerpoint deck has 17 slides, which means I will have to be quick and precise, something I’m not particularly good at. You see, I tend to over-elaborate my points and get easily sidetracked, even when I rehearse, but maybe knowing there will be free cold beers waiting for me when I finish will be a good incentive to get to the point and wrap it up in due time. We’ll see about that…
