I have been known to doomscroll at all hours of the night. It's not healthy and I've been pretty successful switching to the iOS Books app for insomnia reading. (Recently enjoyed the encyclopedic rhythm of Revolution in the Head
about every Beatles track.)
Sometimes visuals are a better distraction than reading and for those times I like pedalscrolling
. Guitar pedals are just metal boxes. They modify the signal from an electric guitar to add distortion, reverb, compression, or dozens of other effects before the signal gets amplified. They house a circuit board and include switches and knobs to control the effect. Sure I'm in the market for guitar pedals so it is shopping, but I also appreciate them as objects. Some are hand crafted with baroque art between components. Some are mass produced and extremely utilitarian. Some play with both of those expectations. They're small user interfaces and this wide variety of design makes them fun to browse.
I recently collected a bunch of guitar pedal manufacturer websites so I could randomly scroll through some pedals whenever I need to:
I'm sure there are more, but this is a good start. Thought I'd share. Here's to less doomscrolling.
