App that will never exist.
« on: October 31, 2016, 07:15:05 PM »
Something like those barcode scanner apps, but you point them at cd's. It checks the exif data, and if it's clear, the album downloads. No cowpoo import time on your music app of choice.

Kinda like steam without cd code cowpoo.

An app that downloads beer.

poo, that does exist man. You just need money, that's the downside.

I have an aunt who has a nasty disposition while drunk. She'd hire a cab and use the driver as a butler. Beer, a box of food, and two cakes, which she would consume between 2 and 6 am.

Cleaning cake crumbs out of dog piss is a task I hope I never have to perform again.

And yeah, if I could dupe items in real life, I totally would. Like mops.

poo, dupe metallica, call it metallitwo, and watch lars bless'ed explode in rage!

Oh, and my aunt would get angry because I wouldn't sweep before mopping up the piss.

Like, at the point an animal pisses or shits in the kitchen, you lose your vote as to "how should this be cleaned?"

Also, if all her pets weren't dead now, I totally would have called animal control, but she had a weird ability to pass home inspections (my dead uncle's brother constantly called the NJ version of child protective services because cousin was pushing three digits when she was four feet tall.

I'd like to believe that was true, but while I was sat on a hidden beach in St Lucia, I had to call the missus to bring some down to me as I was at least a mile from civilisation.

I suppose that was sort of using an app then, but she took bloody ages!!!

Ancient necromancy, but I discovered Amazon kind of does the reverse of this. If you buy an album directly from amazon, they unlock a digital copy while sending you the physical copy.

I thought that was pretty neat.

Can't redeem your older titles, but you can't have it all.

An app that gives the liner notes of vinyl albums.
Things that keep me up at night:
Are there horns on Cheryl Lynn's 1978 "Got to be real" or are those synthesizers?  Wikipedia is useless.  And nobody seems to think I'd want to see the reverse of the record sleeve on ebay.  I just want to see the credits.  That song gets lots of play, particularly by DJs at weddings.  I think that an ad by Marks & Spencer gave it a new life in the new millenium.  I know there's more pressing issues to be solved, and I can't do anything about the war in the middle East, but this would help me sleep.

You're not wrong. For my mom's trip, I imported a ton of songs onto her phone through itunes. The amount of 70's albums that come up with no album art were staggering. Let alone liner notes.

I've also noted Bing is starting to kick back "No results" a lot, which is something I had never seen with a search engine before. It's not even obscure stuff, I was trying to find filming locations for WB shows because I enjoyed a youtube video about the old WB "ranch".

Pretty sure the VP330 was the first synth with brass and that was 1979. Even then, you couldn't really MTR it to sound like it was being blown. I think David Paich did everything else.

Thanks, smokes.  I had checked Wiki first and saw no mention of horns, which led me to fuss about it here.
I finally located credits on allmusic.com  But it's for a reissue and probably includes multiple tracks and sessions.
They list Bobby Findley, Gary Grant and Bobby Shaw on trumpet, richard Hyde & richard Nash on Trombone; Pete Christlieb, Gene Cipriano, & Ernie Watts on Woodwind (presumably any instrument with a reeded mouthpiece?).  David Paich is credited with keyboards as as composer who did all the instrumental arrangements:  horn, rhythm & string.

Where did you find the detailed insert?  It seems much more complete than the fragmented mess I found on allmusic.com
