consume vs create

It’s easy to consume, it’s hard to create. I think about this every day; like it’s an eternal battle going on in my head. So I’m just going to conduct an experiment. I’m going to try and post consistently for 30 days. Let’s see how it goes. If I get really stuck on a day,…

KZ ZST Review

I bought these earphones (or rather IEMs) in July of last year, and since then I’ve bought another pair of headphones that costs over 7 times. But I still think this is a good pair of IEMs. They cost me ₹1800 in India, and they’re priced at around $20 in most other countries. For the…

Dolby Access for Windows

I tried out the Dolby Access app from the Windows store with my headphones (Hifiman HE-400i) today on a colleague’s recommendation. It doesn’t seem to make a lot of difference to the sound for my headphones. When it comes to music there is no difference at all, but for gaming, I do feel there is…

Inspector Morse – Colin Dexter

[I’m going to start reading an Inspector Morse mystery tomorrow. I’m getting bored with the monotony that comes with being stuck inside.] * I first read an Inspector Morse mystery not too long ago – maybe a couple of years ago – although my dad had got me two Morse books from his trip to…

Stephen King On Writing

[Yesterday, I mentioned that I’m reading On Writing by Stephen King. I want to talk a bit more about it.] * On Writing by Stephen King is Stephen King’s autobiography mixed with tips on writing and being a writer. I’m almost halfway through the book and it’s amazing how much this man has gone through.…
