    what does that mean?

    You should be able to assign an arbitrary number of artists to a song.

    good call, I never reall thought of it that way but that's absolutely true,.

    This is a university/college, right? If the rest of the class is being loud for no goddamn reason he should be able to tell everyone to fuck off because he's paying for his time there.

    I agree, I still hate it.

    You should be able to assign an arbitrary number of artists to a song.

    That would make the spreadsheet view a little complicated. What I do is put the conductor or the soloist as the artist, and put other stuff like the orchestra and the singers in the comments section.

    I want to be able to choose an artist on my iPod and play everything by that artist.

    Yes, while I do realize I could create a playlist for that purpose, I should not have to go to extra effort to work around a software design flaw, and having a datapoint that is clearly in a many-to-one relationship assigned to a simple field is a pretty basic design flaw.

    And yes I do understand that this is a limitation of idv3.

    Hey guys! I just got back from the DMV and I registered to vote in California! I'm excited to get a chance to vote on Prop 8, but I have to admit I'm disappointed to lose my vote in Florida, which is more of a battleground state.

    I hope you are also going to vote NO on Props 7 and 10.

    I haven't heard anything about those, what are they on?

    They are both on renewable energy. Prop 7 is a push to increase the renewable energy mandate -- which would be good, but the Reps, Dems and enviro groups are all against it, saying it's well-intentioned and poorly-worded enough to do more harm than good.

    Prop 10 is a way for California to give money to T. Boone Pickens, the Texas oil tycoon and rat bastard financier of the 2004 election 'swift boat' ads.

    So you want to be able to get everything in your library with Genesis and Phil Collins when you're in a Phil Collins mood? I can see how that's handy. I don't come across that problem too much, because most of the stuff I listen to is, well, big blocks of music that lasts at least 30 minutes, but more commonly over an hour, so I don't really need playlists, unless I'm actually listening to tracks from solo albums, in which case there's only one artist anyway.

    While we're talking about playlist generation, what I really want is something that keeps playing the top related video link on YouTube, so I can just go through a bunch of random opera clips without having to go back to click on a button every 5 or 10 minutes.

    Yeah.

    About 50% of my music is electronica/techno/dance/whatever the hell you want to call it. So I might have a Justice song remixed by MSTRKRFT, for instance. Despite the actual "artist" being Justice, it sounds more like a MSTRKRFT song, and would make sense to play if I were in a MSTRKRFT mood.

    And then I also listen to a fair bit of hip-hop & rap, where the collaborations get ridiculous.

    I can also see it being useful for crossovers, guest vocalists, classical performances that you might want to organize by orchestra, etc.

    it seems silly to attack Spore on basis of its "replayability"

    if it's the kind of thing you're into, it's infinitely replayable

    it's polarizing if anything, but its strengths and its flaws are pretty pronouncedly plain

    I should probably check out that Genius bar and see what it suggests for me. I suck at branching out. It only happens discretely. That is to say, one day I feel adventurous and pick up a random album by someone I don't know, and if I like them, I get obsessed and buy everything related and I don't listen to anything else until one day the adventurous mood strikes again. My musical progression isn't really a continuous function.

    Okay, so if you buy a game about creating things and dislike creating things, it has no replayability.

    If I buy Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2 but hate doing sidequests, farming abilities, or earning new classes, the game has no replayability and a shelf life of about 10 hours.

    It doesn't really make it a fair avenue of attack, though.
