I do Album-Artist/ Album/XX. Artist - TrackTitle. Anything else is frankly superfluous and goes in the ID3 data. The pitfalls of this system are that collaborative albums get their own superfolder instead of going under one of the collaborating artists' folders. This could be fixed with symbolic links but that would cause other issues such as screwing up the folder size. Also I've been tagging Chinese tracks with the English translation in brackets. I realize this may be offensive to you China so I am willing to change the tags to only Chinese characters if you make it easier to learn your language. Thank you.

china already put a lot of apparently underappreciated effort into making it easier to learn its language starting in the 1950s

Daydream: PRC soldiers burst into my room looking for survivors. I stop rowing, turn, and offer them some of my hoarded sour patch kids and Zkittlez strain of marijuana. The situation is tense at first but they begin to sing along as I plink out Beach Boys songs about avoiding foot injuries, and they bivouac for the afternoon. 刘伟 shows me their grenades and we lob one into the back yard for a big laugh. "That yard is yours now. Craters and all :)" they type out on the translator. 王勇 sees my Factorio game open. "Damn, that is an efficient automated ore mining operation you've got there" they type. "You're good at this. Have you considered designing real factories? This is very similar to the software we use to quickly design our factories in China." I laugh and say I didn't realize this could be a real job. "It's no joke, my friend," they reply. Fifteen minutes later and we are walking through the online application to the 厦门市 University of Factory Design. Wow, I think to myself. My journey is just beginning...

Oh the poor they will be rich and the rich they will be poor
That's according to Saul when he wrote down the law
And I'd much rather be rich after than before
For I'm only a poor little beggar girl
Yes I'm only a poor little beggar girl
And I'd much rather be rich after than before
For I'm only a poor little beggar girl

If the words of my song do your conscience alarm
Just remember generosity is like a lucky charm
If you give me your money, it'll do you no harm
For I'm only a poor little beggar girl
Yes I'm only a poor little beggar girl
If you give me your money, it'll do you no harm
For I'm only a poor little beggar girl

if I had a filesystem that used tagging I'd be inclined to organize more, tags are the only efficient way because so many things can fall under multiple tranches. however primarily I need a new computer and have for over a year so I need to sort that out first.

Attn China -- I just want you to know that I'm really excited for the upcoming anniversary celebrations of the 100th year of the Communist Party of China. I also really like the cool videos and songs you've been putting online. I've been watching those and, honestly, I just can't get enough of them.

Been thinking about a Deus Ex-style Meng Wanzhou rescue/escort mission where Justin Trudeau is the final boss but you can defeat him with a high charisma dialogue option that locks him into an endless land acknowledgement.

The whole Xinjiang propaganda push is entirely because China figured out a foolproof model for defeating US-backed Islamist terrorism so all the little gremlins in Langley are pissed that they have to innovate new ways to destroy countries

didn't someone on here get one of those packages of seeds from china that were all the rage last summer?

i just heard some reporter from the atlantic talking about how - despite the official media/US government position that it was all chinese scammers, or any of the more racist/malicious theories that were floated and spread around at the time - they were unable to find anyone who received seeds that they actually hadn't ordered from amazon or elsewhere online. pumped up media stories convinced 100's or 1000's of amerikkkans they were victims of a chinese plot when it was just months of delay (due to covid) and packages labeled in chinese and/or marking the packages as other goods (to avoid regulations around international shipping of plants)
