MetaData - What the Fuck

#1 Posted by ch3burashka (5180 posts) -

I bought the FEZ OST deal - 3 soundtracks for 12 bucks is pretty effing great.

What's not so great is absolutely zero metadata, which means it shows up all cluttered in one 'Unknown Album' folder, along with other 'unknown' tracks.

Maybe I sound like a whiny bitch, but I thought metadata was standard for any music since the CD was introduced - why is it I can get my Backstreet Boys all organized, but the newest shiniest FEZ soundtrack is a jumbled mess? Hell, how do you create music without organizing it yourself?

Anyhoo, anyone have any answers for me? Is Loudr.FM notorious for this bull, or am I destined for a half hour of fucking with property settings.

Phil Fish hates metadata.

@hailinel: The artist is disasterpeace (et al), genius - Phil Fish is the only one not to blame on this one.

You obviously couldn't tell I was joking. Shall I use an emoticon next time? :P

This was a ridiculous overreaction to a painfully obvious joke.

@hailinel: Excuse the fuck out of me - it's hard to tell what Phil Fish hate is real and what is sarcasm. Guess that's his own fault, if you can call it that - he wallows in that hate like a pig in mud.

As for emoticons, we (as in the internet) really need some punctuation and/or fonts that clear up such confusions. It may take out the spice out of life (that's a phrase, right?), but at least it'll dead-end these unfortunate to-and-fros.

PS I've been using "/s" for sarcasm. Don't know if people know what the hell I'm doing.

When I bought it off the Disasterpeace website everything was labelled properly.

@dfl017: I bought it off Loudr.FM - I figured it was their fault.

Also, not the first time this happened, although last time I think it was Game Music Bundle. It hella sucks.
