Finally we made it!
After voting at Japan's upper National Diet, revised version of security laws have now enacted.
I would like to tone it back... The colors are WAY too much.
"Auto-correct makes me say things I didn't Nintendo"
Here are some drop quotes:
"You might call this impulse vindictive protectiveness. It is creating a culture in which everyone must think twice before speaking up, lest they face charges of insensitivity, aggression, or worse."
"Emotional reasoning dominates many campus debates and discussions. A claim that someone’s words are “offensive” is not just an expression of one’s own subjective feeling of offendedness. It is, rather, a public charge that the speaker has done something objectively wrong. It is a demand that the speaker apologize or be punished by some authority for committing an offense."
"The thin argument “I’m offended” becomes an unbeatable trump card ... in which opposing parties use claims of offense as cudgels. In the process, the bar for what we consider unacceptable speech is lowered further and further."
So, when Google Play music came out, I was a fan. I liked how it worked and how it sorta managed my music files and how I could access my music from anywhere.
But lately I find the program to be absolutely impossible to use. Every time I open it I'm offered dozens of choices which are NOT my music files. Channels and artist of the day and other "suggested" crap that I have no interest in at all.
I try to get to MY music and it's several clicks deep and many of the tools I used to help manage it are gone or I just can't find them anymore. Basically, Google Play music has become a huge commercial for crap I have no interest in which gets in the way of what I actually want, which is access to MY music.
So, I started looking for a way around this. I started thinking, "all my other stuff can be found on my Google Drive, my music should be there, too. Right?" I should be able to browse my music files. Orginize them, rename them. Download or delete them like I would NORMALLY manage a music file.
No, no music is, for some reason, not available in my Google Drive. There seems to be no real way of managing it other than using the absolutely advertisement riddled Google Play app.
So I ask. Does anyone have any recommendations? I figure I'm going to download the whole thing and then delete it all from Play. I'll upload it elsewhere, maybe just upload it manually to Google Drive and use some other app to play it.
Does anyone have anything they do that is not "Here's a list of songs that are kinda like that one you chose... and oh, here's an ad too"?
Am I forced to roll-my-own?
