Jeez - hinge

If you're ever in Sydney on a Wednesday night - give me a call.

We have a desperate need for someone with your knowledge in our pub trivia team!

Every week our music knowledge (or total lack thereof) lets us down!

Well dags, in the Frank Zappa song 'Broken hearts are for a55holes' there is dagmar does get a mention:


Maybe you think youre a lonely guy
Maybe you think youre too tough to cry
So you went to the grape,
Just to give it a try
And dagmar
(Without a doubt, the ugliest sonofabitch I ever saw in my life)
Was his name...
(One two three four!)
The whiskers sticking out from underneath of his pancake make-up
(And yet he was a beautiful lady)
Nearly drove you insane
(Lets talk about leather: leatherrrrrr)
And so you kissed a little sailor
(Tex abel, starring in the latest shepperton production)
Who had just blew in from spain
(Sir richard pump-a-loaf)
You sniffed the reeking buns of angel
(The story of a demented bread-boffer)
And acted like it was cocaine


But no song titles with Dagmar or Dacha. In fact no dagmars or dachas even credited with playing on any of the tracks. And I've actually known a couple, if only I'd realised how rare they are.

.... I refer to your incredible, no-stone-left-unturned approach to cataloguing your music, hinge! Wow.

I guess that's a really nice way of saying 'Get a life you anal retentive librarian'!

Shocked Not at all!

I'm just sort of ... awed by anyone so organized. How do you do it?

If you saw my music collection & saw what it's like here when I am trying to find a particular CD (or book, for that matter), you'd understand my words, hinge! I have been known to buy some CDs a second (even once, a third!) time when I've become convinced they've been lost, borrowed & not returned ... or did I just imagine I had a copy? Confused Same with books. Or finding a particular music track, or a particular quote from a book ....

So, when I read this thread, it made me wonder what life might be like if I wasn't always looking for a needle in a haystack. There is another way!

By sucking any sense of organisation out of every other bit of my life!

The physical arrangement is important too - alphabetical of course. Then genre's alphabetically, and decades withing genres alphabetically for compilations. Thats for vinyl and CD. The tapes are all numbered and the database tells you what number.

Have you seen 'High Fidelity'? My mother saw it and called me and said 'I've just seen a movie about you'. Sigh.

s'funny. It's not the collection I love, it really is just the music it stores. I like listening to music, not owning it. I just happened to be born at the wrong time and had to buy it to listen to it.

Dagmar

Dagmar is one crazy chick
If you don't know her, you'll be sick
She lives just one street away
I'm going straight round there to play

Dagmar all the boys adore
You get some, you'll want some more
She's an angel, she's my queen
The amazingest sight I've ever seen

Hinge can you organise your music according to Dewey?

Interestingly I just noticed how filthy my keyboard is.

My wife says there is a song for everything. Its a game we play.
Someone mentions a subject or emotion or... anything and we find a song to fit.

Sorry Robert, I lost you in a simultaneous post.

The db is just in MS Access (I first wrote it in about 1993 (Access 2.0?) many upgrades and extensions since then. I designed using ER diagrams so it relational and normalised (to a certain point - tended to use memo fields for the credits on albums and tracks).

Nah, Dewey doesn't really work cataloguing songs - and up until this current job I'd never worked in Dewey library - just LCC (Library of Congress Classification) - and I've never been a cataloguer (in library terms) just a bit of indexing - christ I'm boring myself now. I'm playing with adding genre/sub genre/mood to the metadata of my digital library - but I can't find a subject control tool for either. I've been relying on Allmusic's schema but it's a little flaky I've found - and doesn't go down to song level.

Oooh. Fun game. We play bad puns substituting lyrics and malforming artist names on a topic - like say 'Food' with Elvis Parsley singing 'you do what you want but lay of my blue vein cheese'

Oi! I'm supposed to be the anally-retentive librarian around here.

I'm not very good at it (as I no longer frequent libraries - but I'll be better (or gooder) when I grow up! (instead of out!) Twisted Evil
