Had dueling earworms this morning. In this ear, Kdyz Nemuzu Spat by Aneta Langerova

@music In the other ear 雌雄同體 (Gender Queer) by 五月天 (Mayday)

@music Physiogically speaking, they weren't actually in separate ears, but I was hearing bits of them both at the same time and separately. Charles Ives would be proud.

ChasMusic, to thai
@ChasMusic@ohai.social avatar

My earworms often get triggered by seeing or thinking an object, such as a street sign, or word. For example, whenever I eat a potato or think the word "soon", there's a good chance I will earworm the excellent อีกไม่ช้า (Soon), by Thai rock group Potato (featuring Slot Machine).

@music I would probably also earworm it if I ever saw a slot machine, but I never go to casinos, so it's unlikely that will happen.

Wow, when did macOS start having a reduced menubar hover state in the Finder?

Three good things:

  1. delicious lunch outdoors with my bestie and her partner (okay that's two good things)

  2. solved the New York Times Sunday crossword

  3. patiently halved cherries (to remove the pits) for my microwave mini cherry cake

@PeterGray @3goodthings oh, cool. not sure if I want to add another posession for something I get to use perhaps one or two months out of the year during cherry season (or less, I usually eat them directly and stone them in my mouth rather than baking with them) but it's good to know such a thing exists in case I get such an interest.

Another reason to add to your photos, basically, anywhere, is that, yes, there are sighted people that disable all images in their browsers because it's faster to browse.

ChasMusic,
@ChasMusic@ohai.social avatar

@potungthul @weirdwriter Hmm, actually, I think this is a place for a photo caption, as text on the web page, reading "wildfires are turning the afternoon sun red" while the alt text reads "red sun behind mountains". Alt text is meant to convey what a sighted person would see. Meaning belongs as text on the page.

There seems to be a distinctive sound to Thai rock music. I'm listening to my global music playlist in background & คนตัวเล็ก by Hobbit came on. Even though I'm not familiar with this song or the group, I knew the song was in Thai before the lyrics started just from the sound, :08 to :19. ¿Anyone who's into Thai rock notice this? ¿Is it the playing style? Or ¿do they use the same studio which puts out a distinctive sound?

@music By way of reference, I listen to a lot of Big Ass, AB Normal, Potato, Slot Machine, Tilly Birds, but I also listen to rock (and other music) from just about anywhere and there seems to be a distinctive sound to Thai rock.

ChasMusic, to linguistics
@ChasMusic@ohai.social avatar

YouTube music often shows song titles for songs using non-Latin writing systems transliterated into the Latin alphabet, which makes the titles easier to read but hard to verify that the song is in a language that I'm seeking. I wish they would show the title both ways.

If lyrics are available, then I can use the lyrics to verify. But often they're not.

This morning I'm discovering the music of Veronica Adane. Not sure where Veronica is from, but the cover lettering is Ethiopic, which implies singing in Amharic and being from Ethiopia or Eritrea. ¡Nice!

Was trying to find a song for my playlist in Gujarati but YouTube Music's search feature is, um, kinda random. Returned among other things the wonderful song Ya Sudahlah by Bondan Prakoso & Fade2Black

ChasMusic,

@music Anyway, think I may have found a suitable Gujarati song (with no definite assurance it's in Gujariti)

Khamma Khodal by Kinjal Dave

Was worried about: rain.
Shoulda been more concerned with: sunburn.

#classic #oops

Anyway, that's today's exercise sorted, and then some. I think XZibit would like #Pittsburgh; it heard u like hills, so it put hills on its hills, so you can hike while you hike^W ride the funiculars.

ChasMusic,
@ChasMusic@ohai.social avatar

@bitprophet I rode it whenever I went back to the 'burgh for a visit. I'd usually go up the Mon, walk to the Duquesne (with a detour to Shiloh Street), then down the Duquesne and catch a bus downtown at the foot.

Was trying to find some Greek popular music so searched on Ψ and found some fun Czech rock instead. Psi Pisen (Beautiful 1960s) by Wohnout

@ChasMusic@ohai.social avatar

Pequeña y Fragil is an originally Italian song with a humongous number of Spanish covers. I've put together a playlist of around 50 of them. Yes, I'm strange. But there's a surprising amount of variety in this eclectic and idiosyncratic playlist.

Cooking and caring about what I cook is one of my primary ways of distressing, and caring for myself. When I don’t do that, or when I have meals which are too ‘hurried’(in both prep, as well as eating of), I get very distressed very quickly.

So I am always trying to do the most laborious thing I can when I cook not just because I get to geek out on techniques, skills, also to get interesting flavors out of my food

ChasMusic,
@ChasMusic@ohai.social avatar

@skinnylatte I'd be nervous leaving something cooking all night while I slept, even though I have a fire alarm

Earlier today, I shared the first prototype of starting and stopping services in Cork.

I've made some adjustments to it, including polishing up the progress indicator, and I think it looks pretty alright.

What do you think?

this weekend:

  • Social night out with my work team, and then last minute aurora chasing due to the crazy levels of activity (we don’t normally see it like that here)
  • Loads of people out at the park and the coast, new to any astronomy, just because they wanted to see the aurora. Nice to see people learning how to spot and photograph a natural wonder! ✨
  • Catch-up with family from all around the country, for my uncle’s birthday. Good food, chat and sunshine ❤️

More soy toots: when you buy soy sauce look at the ingredient list and label.

If it has ‘hydrolyzed soy protein’, it’ll be roughly the same quality as ‘cheap Chinese restaurant takeout soy sauce packets’. Soy sauce made from chemical processes. It doesn’t taste good to me and is usually amped up with sugar.

If it just says ‘soy beans’, and the label says ‘naturally brewed’ or ‘naturally fermented’ or ‘first draw soy sauce’ it will be pretty good.

ChasMusic,
@ChasMusic@ohai.social avatar

@skinnylatte Tried looking for it last time I was at the SF Nijiya and couldn't find it. There was another Nijiya house brand some-kind-of-sauce but no soy low or regular.

@ChasMusic@ohai.social avatar

@skinnylatte Guess it was out of stock. I'd be looking for 80-90% less, so likely not enough. Thank you anyway.
