I don't use Spotify, but cmus-remote, to track plays. The album I played the most this year are:

1. Tamaryn - Dreaming The Dark
2. Mesarthim - (A bunch of dashes)
3. Cemeteries - Barrow

followup thought: I would just love if operating systems got their ass out of the way of realtime audio. we have so much power available to do things at incredibly low latency but operating systems are still a giant slow middleman. ew. /rant

computer hardware has the problem of induced demand just like multi-lane highways. You add a lane, the traffic increases to fill that same lane. Congestion is just as bad as before. You add a few GiBs of RAM or another CPU core and the hardware demands of software increase to fill up that free real estate. Hardware usage is just as bad as before.

I have a notebook filled with game concepts, prototypes, adventures and other bits and bobs.

I’m going to collate a load of them together with a few other bits I already put out into the world as a miscellany of my thoughts.

In it so far:

Prototype tabletop cricket commentary game.

The trail to spork point.

Bad football variants.

An experimental musical notation story game.

Dice based weed growth simulator.

A collection of very small “games”

Rode the bike through a blizzard yesterday to get this little, new, old toy. Also made a small pen for the touch screen.

Today's plan is, and I quote, "the punk rock flea market" (the day after we spent the evening in a ska punk mosh pit for both of our's first live shows since 2019 - fitting)

New Jersey isn't so bad after all, other than being super car centric.
