Wanted a uses page, made a config section

All jealous of john sj anderson’s uses page. Started making my own. Decided it would be easier just to share my config. Might as well, since Hugo directly supports org content via go-org.

I’ll add /uses later. Anyways, time for music.

Bookmarking the KEXP livestream links

Bookmarking the KEXP livestream links

KEXP used to show their live streaming links on the site. Not the browser stream, podcast library, video archive, or Windows, iOS, or Android apps. An actual URI I can load in Audacious or whatever music player I’m using that week.

I love all the other stuff. Heck, as an amplifier I’m happy to see to see all the work my money goes towards. Just – sometimes all I want is the music.

Dug around and found a Reddit post with current links.

128K MP3 Stream
https://kexp-mp3-128.streamguys1.com/kexp128.mp3
AAC+ Stream
http://live-aacplus-64.kexp.org/kexp64.aac

Now I can listen to the livestream again without having a browser tab open.

Do not shop on first coffee

Do not shop on first coffee

Got sidetracked while picking up breakfast stuff from Uwajimaya. Should probably have finished my first cup of coffee before I left. Could have been worse. There was an entire boy band worth of that Babinski Cold Brew. I only took one.

Meanwhile, someone put a flyer on the apartment bulletin board for the Earshot Jazz Festival. Checked to see if any of the names were familiar. Most were new to me, but I recognized — and enjoy — Knife Knights.

A jazz context makes more sense for Knife Knights than rap/hip-hop, which is where I usually see them filed. Heck, genres are meaningless anyways. My favorite music stores just arrange albums alphabetically.

Anyways, time to drink some coffee!
