Thanks Yablo.

I don't understand. It says it recognizes music videos and shit. And then I go to play them on my iPod and it is a bitch to me and just plays the songs. This is what I get for using iTunes.

will it allow you to upload video? I had this same problem last week with a new ipod/while using a mac. I just formatted the ipod to a pc and everything worked out peachy, even though I used a mac to upload video and music.

when you plug in your Ipod you get a screen that says restore ipod to factory defaults. click yes. Yes this sucks because all your hard work goes to shit. MAKE SURE ALL YOUR MUSIC IS ON YOUR COMP. Once it is restored to orginial settings plug into a pc and a screen will come up asking something to the effect. This is a mac formatted ipod do you want to format to pc?" Click yes. For some reason I think it is an error in itunes but im able to now upload music and videos from both a pc and mac.

Thanks Justin, I appreciate it. I don't understand why doing this is such a difficult process. Stupid Apple.

Just to let me get the facts straight:

You downloaded the videos from the iTunes store, right?

What version of iTunes you have (Help / About iTunes)?
Which iPod do you have?

Figured it out. My iPod had some weird options going on.

Andrew, it's real easy. I had the same problem first time.

If you pick the track by going through the 'Music' menu it'll only play the music. Go back up to the main menu and select 'videos' and play it from there. Should be fine then.

Andrew, I have no idea where else to put this, so I'm doing it here. I guess it technically counts as a problem I have.

So, I went to the Deerhoof/Hella/Busdriver show last night. I was hanging out there by myself waiting for Jennie to arrive - Tessa had skipped out. I was tired as shit because I've worked about 120 hours the past two weeks, and I was kind of bumming on the fact that Hella was going on at 10, and Deerhoof on at 11:10, but I was down to rally. I saw the end of Busdriver's set - he seemed very forgettable - and had a drink while I waited anxiously for Hella, a band I had never heard before but always had on my radar because you seemed to love the hell out of them. I figured that even if I didn't like them, they would be a decent warm-up for Deerhoof, who I like quite a bit and was very excited to see.

Well, two songs into Hella's set, I jammed. Dipped. Peaced the fuck out. WHO IS THIS FUCKING BAND? Good God, it was like the sequel to my experience with The Thermals! I swear, I thought I was watching a frat boy parody of The Mars Volta. Sure, Hella's drummer is sweet - no doubt about it. But the rest of it was just sludge. The singer was unbearable. The guitarists just sounded like mud. They ruined the night for me. They were so atrocious that I couldn't even stomach the idea of watching them for an hour to get to Deerhoof, who I've already seen twice in the past year. So, that was it for me.

So I guess my question is, why do you like fucking Hella!?!?

how d schoolio,

one thing... the drummer is amazing.. end of story

Hella started off as just instrumental jams, just 2 guys. Guitar & Drums.
Then they branched out to a full band 2 years ago. It was ok, pretty noisy.
They then scrapped that band & formed a whole NEW band with a new singer
just within the past couple months.

So this new incarnation may have sucked. I haven't seen this 3rd version of Hella before.
I'll have to wait until they come into my neck of the woods before i judge.

The new incarnation sucked. Gabe, you should have stuck around. Deerhoof killed it. I had a friend who came on a whim and she left a Deerhoof convert.

Yeah, I knew I would regret missing Deerhoof - and I do - but last night, I was having that pained feeling again, where I would do ANYTHING to escape the band that was causing it. I'm glad to hear it was good. I will see them again in the future, I'm sure.

Also, Bryan, I forgot that you were going. I would have found some way to get ahold of you; that may have made a difference. Nevertheless, I'm happy to have gotten the extra rest.

Bug, thank you for clarifying that - it explains a lot. That was much more of an answer than I was really looking for; I was mostly just looking to bitch in general about how bad they were. The addressing it to Andrew thing was just a framing device.

And you think I'm going to put on a pair of pants and turn off Battlestar Galactica for a version of a band you're unfamiliar with?

Damn you, bug.

I had no idea they had a singer and another guitar player and shit now. I loved the instrumental duo because of they were fucking crazy. That's all I was familiar with hahaha. That sucks.
