Smart Playlists Auto-Update on the iPod

Monday, May 1st, 2006

Smart Playlists is one of iTunes strongest, and probably most under-used features. You can make an automatic playlist with nearly any criteria you want - a particular word in the title, the number of times a track has played (or not played), how you've ranked a track (either good ...

The Best Dirty Little Song Ever

Sunday, January 29th, 2006

Louis XIV is at the top of my playlists right now. Their songs are loud and fast without being irritating. The best song ever, though, is Pledge of Allegiance. Ah little Stacy Q When she doesn't have a thing to do She comes to my house Well, let's keep that ...

Radio is Dead! Long Live Last.fm!

Monday, October 31st, 2005

I've always had a love-hate relationship with online radio stations. It's great to hear new music that you don't have in your own collection, but it totally sucks to have to wade thru crappy song after crappy song in-between gems. Too often it seems like someone had a ...

Saturday, February 14th, 2004

If you haven't heard about it yet a New York DJ recently took the words only version of Jay Z's "The Black Album" and mixed the words with the beats of the Beatles classic "White Album". The response has been amazing, the few printed records of it are going ...
