It’s amazing how many 3’s used to be hit in cricket. Before the bats turned into chunks of wood you could use as railway sleep. Now complete mishits go for 4. https://mastodon.social/@ianRobinson/112288506533770884

My favourite music setup ever. HomePod Stereo pair. AppleTV. LG 49 inch 4K monitor. Philips Hue Backlight. It sounds amazing. I think the wooden TV stand spaces enhance the bass from the HomePods.

Looks I’ve fixed the Recents playlists not updating in Apple Music on iPhone by following the suggested fix in this Apple Forum thread.

https://discussions.apple.com/thread/255479583

If you have the issue on any of your devices try this add a track to the stuck playlists and then remove it. Until your most recent playlist appears in the Recents list. Occasionally try adding a track to your most recent playlist to see if it appears in Recents next time you are adding a track. It did for me after about 8 adds.

Of course, it’s likely that The Last Dinner Party are influenced by Chappell Roan. Both musically and visually. https://mastodon.social/@ianRobinson/112288153372746895

The new Chappell Roan single is good. If I’d heard it without knowing who it was from, and I was told it was The Last Dinner Party I’d have believed it.

Good Luck, Babe! - Chappell Roan.

I loved it in the cinema. I rated it 9/10. It’s got a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

I bought it from Apple Store. https://tv.apple.com/gb/movie/perfect-days/umc.cmc.4144icbf4p6lsxokikch0zfzq

Are video games coming for the novel? - FT (Requires login - my non subscription login works okay). Also in today’s FT Edit selection if you use that app.

I was surprised by the total revenue figures for books in this. I knew gaming was huge compared to Films. But books being second and films third was a surprise.

Bloody ex-batters in administration. Can we make the bats thinner and lighter as well?

This is worth reading. A quote:

“I'm also not sure that generating a picture of a person with twelve fingers on each hand or text that reads as though written by an endlessly smiling children's television star who's being held hostage is altogether that much more useful than a bitcoin.”

Listening to REWORK (Disagree and Commit): https://www.buzzsprout.com/2260539/14903454-disagree-and-commit.mp3

"Consensus is cozy, but broad agreement is not our aim. The right decision is. Which is why we take the time to think, debate, persuade, listen and reconsider and then, someone, decides. If you disagree, that’s fine, but once the decision is made, it’s time to commit and support it completely."

“The rainfall was caused by an area of low pressure centred to the south of the Arabian Peninsula, which pulled warm, moisture-laden air in to the region from the Indian Ocean south of Oman, he adds.

Many factors contribute to flooding, but a warming atmosphere caused by climate change makes extreme rainfall more likely.

The world has already warmed by about 1.1C since the industrial era began…”

Cloud seeding in Dubai worked beyond all expectations

@RalphBassfeld Meterologists say it's not that.

“There are reports that recent "cloud-seeding" in the skies above the UAE might have caused the record-breaking event - but BBC Weather meteorologist Matt Taylor says the storm had already been predicted by forecast models. Cloud-seeding, the practice of altering clouds to make rain, has been going on in the United Arab Emirates for more than 10 years.”
