Dopóki nie skorzystałem z Internetu, nie wiedziałem, że na świecie jest tylu idiotów.

The Centurion card has become a status symbol in the music industry, especially in hip-hop culture.[33] In 2002, Bloomberg News reported that rapper Sean “P. Diddy” Combs used the card to buy 400 cocktails at a bar in Los Angeles.[34] In the song “Doing It Way Big” (2003), Lil’ Kim sings: “I smack niggas 'cross the face with a Centurion card / Who don’t believe I’m (doing it way big)”. Lil’ Kim later posed with a Centurion card attached to a diamond-studded necklace for a Nylon magazine photoshoot.[35] In the song “Last Call” (2004), Kanye West refers to the card with the lyrics: “I went to the malls and I balled too hard / ‘Oh my God, is that a black card?’ / I turned around and replied, ‘Why yes / But I prefer the term African American Express’”. In “Welcome Back” (2004), Mase sings: “Amex black card / Shopper of the year”. In “Get It Poppin’” (2005), Fat Joe sings: “I got that black no limit American Express card”. In Einmal um die Welt (2012), German rapper Cro says his girlfriend can buy what she wants because he has “an American Express, and of course the black one.” Other singers including Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, Bow Wow, Nelly Furtado, Lil Wayne, and Nickelback, among others, also mention black cards in their song lyrics but not a specific American Express product.[citation needed]

Why do new Linux systems look so similar to Windows?

I recommend checking the “Streaming quality” option in Spotify settings.

Default is Low.

An audible difference on floor standing speakers.

You probably can’t hear the difference on a smartphone.

Good opportunity to promote ListenBrainz I guess

Meanwhile at reddit:

MusicBrainz keeps providing me wrong data or have some not too obscure artists with no country ascribed - it sucks.

@aerozol:

The artists that you like have missing data on MusicBrainz because all their fans (e.g. you) are lazy and expect other people to do the work for them.

Some editors here are doing this intentionally, of course.
