OK, in these times, sometime it seems like a good music playlist is just so vital, so here are some that we’ve been listening to: Hotel Costes Curated Lists. If you sometime need to feel like you in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, there is nothing like the playlist that this cool boutique hotel has. […]
Two years ago a dear friend gave me the gift of really listening to lyrics. In my current mood I’ve been listening to lots of Fort Minor, Lifehouse, Linkin Park and Beyonce. I love the fact that Fort Minor is really Mike of Linkin Park fame doing rap. So here are things to listen to: […]

!>http://images.nutsie.com/mcs-file/r03/3280187/21! Hey I’m not on the board anymore, but Bob has done an incredible job with “Nutsie”:http://nutsie.com. It works on the Mac, upload your iTunes playlist (not the songs), it then plays them for you in a random shuffle and recommends new songs for you based on it.
OK, I use Tritag for making my mp3s have nice tags, but it doesn’t have either lyric finding or artwork finding. “Mactags.blogspot.com”:http://mactags.blogspot.com if you can believe it actually has a review of all Mac based MP3 taggers (talk about narrowcasting). Here are some good recommendations: “MP3-Info”:http://mactags.blogspot.com/2007/02/important-mp3-renamer-i-forgot-to.html. This lets you right click and look at tags, […]
“Flac”:http://flac.sourceforge.net is an format that is lossless, so you get the original quality of the recording. I almost never see it, but if you do, use “xACT”:http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/21952 to convert it to AIFF, the Apple lossless format or to MP3 with Lame, the best encoder.
OMG, I just love “Sweetest Girl”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carnival_Vol._II:_Memoirs_of_an_Immigrant by Wyclef Jean. it is terrific Hip Hop for those of you who like that kind of stuff. Check out the “video”:http://youtube.com/watch?v=7PxBGHjABnU I’m also listening to “Avril Lavigne’s”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avril_Lavigne “Keep Holding On”:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keep_Holding_On
“MP3Tag”:http://www.mp3tag.de/ is a nice freeware program that lets you take MP3 tags and change the filename. I like to do this so that all my music is really nicely laid out. Powered by ScribeFire.
I’ve always loved this song by Elton John and thought it was just about two brothers leaving, but saw being a “Cold Case”:http://www.tv.com/cold-case/show/16989/summary.html mainly because of its great “Soundtrack”:http://www.tv.com/cold-case/the-war-at-home/episode/835342/summary.html?tag=ep_list;title;1 I found out that the song has a missing set of lyrics. Apparently, it was really about a fictional Vietnam vet who has lost his sight […]
