An ah ha! moment

So, I apparently didn’t get enough sleep last night and my brain isn’t working on all cylinders. Anyway, it hasn’t stopped me from some side brain storming. Since I finally got my Mixed Tape plugin to show up on the plugin directory, I guess I was thinking about the type of people who might use it. I shared it with one of the guys over at Music Brainz, who plans to do a little write-up about the plugin. I guess that was in the back of my head, because it came to me that people who review music could use the plugin. Of course, that might have nothing to do with a music database, but it might. I bet there are plenty of people who write-up reviews about the latest album from their favorite artist, before they submit it to Music Brainz.

Since the plugin basically just takes the tracks and makes a playlist a reviewer could discuss each of the tracks on the album and link to the track as the review goes along. So, when they are done, someone could listen to the track and see if they have the same impression as the reviewer.

So, this means I probably need to make some small enhancements. I can probably add an option to the playlist to show either the mixed tape or a cd or maybe just an album. Or maybe I could show do a thumbnail of the album art, if the reviewer had that. Then I guess there would be an option as to whether or not the page contained a mixed tape or single album.

Welp, guess I better add that to the “to do” list.
