Five Small Pages From My Wiki

Actually, my favourite part of having a wiki is all the small pages that barely have anything on them, but slowly grow over time. So here’re some of those:

Five Pages From My Wiki

Tuesday, May 24th, 2022

I’m a little secretive about my wiki, but it’s probably the thing I work on the most. I guess it’s mostly videogame, Linux, and J-pop stuff, so doesn’t seem worth sharing most of the time. Trying to find five pages that had enough stuff and weren’t about these things was tough, but I’ve spared you Linux ones at least.

I’d like to incorporate it more across my other web projects, using it to tie them together, so I’m going to be using a different colour on wiki links to make them clearer, and I’ll be using the nice green colour (#008800) DokuWiki uses.

J-POP LANDSCAPES

I’ve started a new blog to collect together photos from J-pop videos.

African Disco, Funk, Etc. – XMas 2020

Saturday, August 28th, 2021
Front and back cover images. Front is just the compilation title, back is the track list and a spikey rendition of Africa

Been meaning to share this for ages, but anyway, here’s a little compilation I made for Christmas pressies.

I wanted it to be more diverse, but turns out most of the stuff I like comes from Ghana and Nigeria.

SVGs for printing the cover are included. Tags might be fucked should be fixed. I’ve been moving from Foobar2000 to Quod Libet, so the music library’s a bit of a mess at the moment.

Track list:

  1. Only You, Steve Monite
  2. Enjoy Your Life, Oby Onyioha
  3. You’re My Solution, Eric Kol
  4. Living Everyday, Tee Mac
  5. Sweeper Soul, Super Mambo 69
  6. Talking About Music, Nana Love
  7. Groove I Like, Veno
  8. We Can Move, Free Youth
  9. Disco Dancer, Kiki Gyan
