As pretty as GUI music applications like Lollypop are there is something to be said for the minimalism of MPD + NCMPCPP

@LibertyPaulM i use MPD+Sonata.. not perfect.. It has fairly decent key bindings for everything that really matters.

Shift-pause does this `mpc current --wait; mpc pause` to pause after the song.

Also just realized i can pause it run video, auto unpause it..

mpc pause
if [ $VID == "sel" ]; then
VID=$(xsel -p)
echo $VID >> /tmp/pause-during
mpv --fullscreen --force-window $VID

mpc play

Still logging not sure if i'll run into issue.
