Sometimes I like to see how small or obtuse of a string I can put into the search box on iTunes to return a specific result. Yeah, I could just type in the album name, but I feel like I can avoid typing a character here and there and still get the same results. Ironically, the cumulative number of characters I’ve managed to avoid typing while doing this probably add up to less than the number of keystrokes I’m putting into this post explaining the whole ridiculous process.
For example, kr ope is specific enough to return Kraftwerk - Trans-Europe Express, and thei co will give me all my Thievery Corporation albums. wu 8 returns Wu-Tang’s 8 Diagrams, while wu 3 returns 36 chambers.
Granted, those are just typing in the first few letters of each word until I get down to something specific, but yah yo, somewhat hilariously, is enough to find Matiyahu - Youth, and hiv is two extraneous songs away from sorting to just The Hives.
These are the things I waste my time figuring out. It’s really pretty stupid.
