iPhone Coverart Fail

Ok, this was really just a reason for me to play with my camera, iMovie, and YouTube uploading, but an annoying bug none the less.

The coverart that is displayed does not match the track that is playing. Switch to coverflow and the coverart is correct. Switch back and it is still wrong. Flip to the details and the mini coverart is correct. Odd. I think this has been there for quite a few spins of the firmware.

And note to self, small text overlays don't encode well at YouTube quality :) That fail is all on me.


5 of the Now

  • Bag Raiders - Fun Punch (Bag Raiders Remix)Bag Raiders - Bag Raiders Remixed - EP - Fun Punch
    I love how Audiosurf can make such a great video for this track. Banging and uplifting.

  • Deadmau5 - Hi Friend (Original Mix)Deadmau5 & MC Flipside - Hi Friend - EP - Hi Friend
    Deadmau5 continues to own it. Lots of energy.

  • Robyn - CobrastyleRobyn - Robyn - Cobrastyle
    I wish I could play the drums with a bear head on. Actually, I just wish I could play the drums. I'm guessing that's a nod to the Teddybears?

  • Muscles - Ice CreamMuscles - Guns Babes Lemonade - Ice Cream
    I'm repulsed by the words muscles and ice cream in the same sentence, but I dig the music.

  • Fischerspooner - A Kick in the TeethFischerspooner - Odyssey - A Kick In the Teeth
    I don't know what it is about Fischerspooner. I like their music and own a few handfuls of their tracks, but I seem to ignore their releases. I always end up hearing it somehow anyway and then think "wow that sounds great, who is that?".


Where's the Love?

I like to rate stuff. Movies from Netflix, songs in iTunes, photos in iPhoto - they all allow ratings of 1 to 5 stars. I make use of these ratings in all of these apps. I started to wonder if I have similar distributions of love-like-hate across different types of media. So, of course I made a really geeky bar graph!

  • First off, I don't have time in my life for hate. Music and photos that I hate get removed from my library. A movie has to be really bad for me to hate it. I only had 9 hated movies in Netflix out of over 500 ratings.

  • I have nearly 6000 things rated between the 3 groups. Apple must love me for their genius database.

  • Movies and music tend to collect in the Really Like. I think that makes sense.

  • I take bad photos. Most of my library is stuff I took and I rate most of it at 3 stars. Photos have the lowest love percentage.

  • I seem to love more movies as a percentage vs. music and photos.

  • Less than 10% of my library is music that will gurantee that I dance, sing along, and nod my head when it comes on. That's unfortunate and probably why I spend so much money on music. Always on the hunt for a 5 star :)
