My wife asked me tonight if my Steam ID is a Spinal Tap reference, and I’ve never been more proud of somebody in my life.
Fresh coffee before I plant myself here for the afternoon’s work.

I figure, a dad can have a little music. As a treat. ⤴️
Oh dear. I’ve accidentally spent the last two nights searching for a new stereo amplifier. 📻

I used soundiiz.com for the first time today, to import a playlist from Spotify to Qobuz. It worked beautifully and is a really impressive tool.
Still poking around last.fm and is it my imagination or is there no link to the actual user profile to be found anywhere? I’m sort of boggled. I can get to my profile because I happen to have it in browser history; but where is the link to it?
I’m currently exploring the time capsule that is last.fm – both the site/service as well as my listening history captured there. Using Roon & Qobuz means I’m sending tracks there again after a few years’ gap, and the lens it provides on my internet and social networks circa 2005 and on is really something. Really, the whole site shouldn’t exist anymore, it’s such a weird anachronism.
🎧 Well. I went out to the bookstore yesterday and came home with a NUC to put Roon on. I really would prefer something truly silent, and this one makes some fan noise. On the other hand, impulse buy. Time will tell whether this is actually a good idea.
🎧 Oh dear. Between trying out Roon and Qobuz I’m way down deep in the audio rabbit hole right now. I spent a chunk of yesterday reading about DACs, NUCs, and Roon configs, and today I ran across a guy comparing a set of $270,000 speakers to a set of $260,000 speakers. boggled
🎮 I started playing Control yesterday and it’s so good! Atmosphere, architecture, story, play – so far it’s hitting right on all my frequencies. I can’t wait to play more.
Just confirming, gang, that The Hold Steady’s “Constructive Summer” shouldn’t — nay cannot — be played at sub-100% volume?
Late Sunday evening, listening to this beautiful album that I haven’t heard in years. Roon surfaced it in my Discover view, and it’s perfect for tonight.
When the revolution comes, I’ll lead a special squad to wreck, just absolutely PC LOAD LETTER, these fucking gas pumps that play ads and “content” at me.
Binging Rush pretty hard, and by the way @jack has probably sold another listener on Roon today, too.
