gmusicbrowser: An Acrobat Among Music Players

I have got to talk about gmusicbrowser, my current music player.



This is an extensively customizable player. It comes with several layout configuration by default and then there's user created layouts available from third parties.



The 1st screenshot shows the shimmer desktop layout with the song tree pane. The 2nd screenshot has the shimmer desktop with browser configuration. If you're the kind of music player aficionado who likes to change the user interface every time you start a music player then you're in heaven.

And I was just trying to find a player with a decent equalizer!

gmusicbrowser has that and MORE.

I could filter my library based on metadata. Metadata includes artist, album, genre(s), year, label and more. I could customize the filter and save it.

I could control how random play goes in gmusicbrowser. I could play music based on its metadata of course. But when it comes to random play, gmusicbrowser allows me to combine several metadata filters or weights to help it choose what to play next.

I could lock play to artist (to play one particular artist) or to album (to play just the album).

Management of metadata is very easy with gmusicbrowser. It is capable of mass tagging and saving it to file. It is a matter of selecting which tracks or albums to edit. I never have to use Easytag again.

America Must Evolve Fast Or Die

This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date.
America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.

GnuCash In Arch Linux

I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.

But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.

Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster

The Last Jedi is coming this December 2017. I can't wait. My guess is we can watch it later in the Christmas season or even later than the New Year 2018. The Filipino Film Festival season usually starts the 15th December up to January 7th. Only Filipino films are shown in theaters. Unless there's a special run, we would see it much later.
