    I think the moment I don't have access to Creative Cloud from my job I'm learning alternative softwares. I've been using Adobe products for about 18 years, 10 of them professionally in marketing roles.

    I don't see Adobe messing up the "pro" version of Photoshop any time soon, though.

    Hi Tildes! You might remember me posting music updates every now and then. Well, the duo 'Noise Job' that I started with Alan who I met on r/bedroombands just released its second single! This time it's two songs and there's a video for Sunken.

    I'd love to hear what you think of it!

    How do you feel about nudity in art? Does nudity in films or TV shows seem necessary to you?

    I'm interested to hear people's thoughts on this topic after making that comment about censorship of nudity in a particular TV show.

    I for one am from a culture where it's not unusual to be naked in a sauna with people who you might not even know, so I personally am not bothered by it. When it's porn-y it might take me out of the experience, but when done tastefully it just seems inherently 'human' to me.

    What else could the change be rooted in? EDIT: In Europe we are pretty chill. You might see some dongs or pairs of breasts during commercials or in daytime programming.

    Highly recommended, I'll say that much. Second season has Ben Sinclair in a bigger production role, and it shows. High Maintenance is also highly recommended, btw. Both on HBO.

    Something else HBO Max added: Blurred genitalia in some shows (Like Dave, for example) that weren't there when it was still called HBO Nordic. Gotta love the puritanical wave coming from the US as services go universal.

    Btw, in that Dave episode they censored the main character's junk as he was climbing into a pool of water. In the same episode they showed him using a kitchen knife to cut a piece of his friend's arm, and then proceeding to cook it on a skillet and serve it in a restaurant. In another episode Dave bites the tip of a man's penis off and spits it out with blood and gore. This was not altered in the transition to HBO Max.

    I found the film needlessly long, filled with bad dialogue and just not that interesting. Some cool cinematography, Pattison and Kravitz are great. I found myself thinking about The Dark Knight as this film just kept on going and going while giving me very few reasons to stay invested.

    I've used both for ages. Only reason I kept a PC was to do some gaming, but nowadays I tend to play on my Xbox and mostly use my Mac for music production and work.

    Audio interface stuff is miles better on Mac and that's what currently matters most for me.

    My PC told me it would not qualify for W11 and promptly started BSODing every boot. I'm typing this on my new Macbook.

    I'd also assume the gear on this tier will get upgraded while your parts are gonna stay the same. If I had the internet to use cloud gaming, I'd really think hard about getting this sub. I'm stuck on decent LTE for now, but the Xcloud streaming barely works still.

    Thanks. Yeah, I've always been a music fan but now that I'm writing an album I've really grown to appreciate the effort put into making an album from scratch.

    Good question. I've written, performed and produced all of these tracks myself. In the very first track the bass is played by Vacant Sundays. :)

    Some of you might remember me posting about my first steps into actually releasing music. Well, now I had the chance to perform live for the first time ever!

    Filmed in a former studio of a radio station in Helsinki, the event was live streamed last month and I got to perform 6 songs of my own!
