Lagrange, Walker, Mecha & 500 Songs


Lagrange is a desktop GUI client for browsing Geminispace. It offers modern conveniences familiar from web browsers, such as smooth scrolling, inline image viewing, multiple tabs, visual themes, Unicode fonts, bookmarks, history, and page outlines.

A joy to use. Thanks to its subscription features, I’ve been treating Lagrange as a Gopher & Gemini companion to NetNewsWire (and thinking of it as the spiritual successor to TurboGopher!).

Gopher and Gemini Walker

…a terminal utility to navigate a folder structure containing a Gopher hole or a Gemini capsule.

Once I’d decided to set up a gemlog, I tried oodles of Gemini-related software–tools that let you convert Markdown to Gemtext and vice versa, gemlog generators, &c.–but this (plus a vim syntax plugin) is the only thing that stuck. It lets you make sure you haven’t made any terrible mistakes before publishing your capsule, without the bother of setting up a server locally.


The latest sub-sub-sub-genre in electronic music for nightclubs. An offshoot of the mountaineering-inspires, tomtom-heavy Gorge from Japan. Wild percussion, heavily processed samples, shades of juke, ballroom and Jersey club. Fun!

A History of Rock Music in 500 Songs

Andrew Hickey’s deep dive into the history of rock ‘n’ roll (and blues, jazz, doowop, soul, R&B, pop, &c.) is an astonishing piece of work–each podcast episode is accompanied by a full transcript, exhaustive biblopgraphy and a playlist of every song mentioned.
