I managed to snag a copy of Jock Jams, only to find that all of the tracks are clean versions, and have corny crowd cheers overlayed on them.

I might have to compile my own version from all the separate tracks from their original sources. So much work, but it’s a fantastic mix.

My wife told me she’s going to make challah French toast, and I immediately thought of this youtu.be/8x90kFpVUDM

Here’s your periodic reminder that “In Rainbows Disk 2” is fantastic, and most of the tracks should’ve just been included in the main album. album.link/i/1160370310

Spatial Audio is a neat trick (and may be actually useful in an AR context), but under normal listening circumstances, it’s just ruining the audio that someone worked really hard to craft.

I just discovered this record today, and have been spinning it on repeat. Indie rock with some light country elements. album.link/i/1559013378

This is the bit I feel happiest about. Something like this should be in the standard library. It should not be this much work to get the capture groups from a regex match.

I got to write some gnarly code today — a bunch of string parsing and formatting. It was a slog, but I managed to get it working. Feels good!

Also: Foundation’s regex APIs (`NSRegularExpression`, `NSTextCheckingResult`, etc.) are way more complicated than they need to be.

I can work around Swinsian’s imperfections just fine, but it makes me wish yet again that I had time to build my own library manager. 😕

So Swinsian (swinsian.com) is definitely the app I’ve found for managing a local music library on macOS. It’s not perfect, but it gets the job done. It also hasn’t been updated since 2018 from what I can tell, which makes me nervous.

Turns out foobar2000 does have a Mac version, and it’s not too terribly out of date. foobar2000.org/mac

It’s a shame foobar2000 is Windows only, as I think that’s exactly what I need.
