Ideas for Improved MP3 Playlist

Yeah, I had the MP3 playlist in my sidebar finished for all of, oh, a half-hour or so when I got to thinking, “I could think of a better way to use DoSomething to catalog my MP3 listening.”

Yeah, you take data from The Great CD Preservation Project, put the song’s title, artist, and album in a database, and have DoSomething run a submit URL run … and it pushes the title, artist, and album through a POST to indicate what’s been played. Run a couple regexp‘s to parse the data in the POST, run a MySQL query, look for the song, post_count++.

This is me, thinking out loud again. If you read this and think, “Damn, Geof needs a hobby,” you’re missing the point that foofy stuff like this is my hobby.
