    3. What do you think about this potential alternative to Odesli/Song.link?

      Once upon a time we used to use Odesli/Song.link links pretty frequently here on Tildes so people could play the music through whatever supported platform that music was on, but then they changed...

      Once upon a time we used to use Odesli/Song.link links pretty frequently here on Tildes so people could play the music through whatever supported platform that music was on, but then they changed their name and usage of it mostly faded out (at least on Tildes).

      So the other day I was looking through MusicBrainz releases and I noticed that you can add external links to them that link to various other places, and it dawned on me that you could essentially make a collaborative alternative to Odesli using MusicBrainz as the database. I've spent a little bit of time looking through the MetaBrainz APIs and everything this would require can be accessed through it primarily song data, external links and cover art.

      The general usage of it would be you simply use the MusicBrainz search, navigate to the release you want and then replace the musicbrainz.org with alternative.whatever.

      So here comes my question, what do you think about this idea and would you use it if it existed?

    4. An interesting story about Christopher Cross

      My family moved, from New England (USA), to North Carolina in 1979. I was a young boy at the time, athletic/outgoing and was eager to play with new friends.

      I met a boy that lived not too far from me in the apartment complex we resided in. We would ride bicycles, skateboard, swim, and build forts together.

      Christopher Cross' debut hit album was released that same year and was starting to get heavy rotation on the radio. I remember hearing his music all the time during this period of time. If you want a refresher of one of his biggest hits, then listen to Sailing.

      I can't recall, precisely, how the conversation came up with my new boyhood friend. However, when the boy told me that Christopher Cross was his father I just couldn't believe it. He urged me to come to his apartment to hear it from his mother.

      Long story short, his mother (Roseanne Harrison) confirmed that she had recently separated from Cross. I do recall that she said Cross wasn't sending enough financial support. Mrs. Harrison was working all the time trying to provide for her son while Cross had millions of dollars living in Bermuda.

      My new friend and Mrs. Harrison were deeply hurt and bitter, understandably.

    8. What are your favorite Christmas songs?

      "It's too early for Christmas", you may be saying, but you may also be a Scrooge and I won't abide by it. Christmas is just about 2 weeks away and I'm ready to listen to some Christmas music. So...

      "It's too early for Christmas", you may be saying, but you may also be a Scrooge and I won't abide by it. Christmas is just about 2 weeks away and I'm ready to listen to some Christmas music. So what are some of your favorites?

      Also any non-Christmas December holiday music can be shared as well! I'm just not aware of any of the others having much music (unless you're into that Adam Sandler song).

      edit: I put together a Spotify playlist of everything (so far as of Dec 13 @ 1pm EST) -- https://open.spotify.com/playlist/7FY6Ngmo60so3xzy3xCTY5?si=729f98cd8da34283

      edit 2: I've been adding songs as they trickle in. Last updated Dec 20
