The first week of work is over and I enjoyed it. Most of it was spent introducing myself to the various libraries and frameworks that I’ll be using, and to the different projects that the company works on. I also did some pair programming, which was a good way to get a gentle introduction to things. It’s still going to take a while to get comfortable with it all and get up to speed, but I think I’m going to enjoy working here.
Here are some more songs that I’ve been listening to (oddly enough, like with the previous post, it’s a paired set of songs again). First is an amazing, sometimes sung, sometimes spoken, version of Lou Reed’s Caroline Says II:
And this is a riff on Caroline Says II by Amanda Palmer — or maybe it’s a homage, or both? It’s called Blake Says, and it might play on a few other Lou Reed / Velvet Underground songs as well (All Tomorrow’s Parties perhaps?), but I’m not sure.
Both of these songs break my heart in little ways.
