20:42 - !J.O.O.E.! Well I can't recommend the newer incarnations. God awful, ugly, slow, memory hogging shite. I've got some botched ancient version that doesn't auto-update any more. Afraid to touch it in case it does...
20:41 - Alex Fenger Oooh that's really cool as well.... hmm you're actually kinda selling me on spotify haha. I am, admittedly, tired of iTunes
20:40 - !J.O.O.E.! I really doesn't take all that long I've found. I assume because it's indexed and runs in the background whenever you open the program. It hides duplicates too which is handy, as I have shit loads of duplicated songs etc on my PC.
20:38 - Alex Fenger That's pretty cool, I didn't know spotify did that. But again, I have way too much clutter on my computer for a HDD scan to be effective. I guess if it was targeted that would be easier
20:37 - !J.O.O.E.! I've never owned anything that wasn't drag & drop. One of the reasons I like Spotify is it keeps track of my harddrive music even if I move it. As long as it's set to scan in the right locations. I don't use the mobile version tho
20:36 - Alex Fenger ....would take hours on a standard HDD
20:34 - Alex Fenger To my knowledge that's how every third-party mp3 player works. I'm not sure if there are any applications for playing music that constantly check the location of your files. Especially when I have 2TB of shit and scanning that
Devin Townsend just doesn't stop. With the Casualties Of Coolrelease on the horizon, Devin is already preparing the next one and that will be Ziltoid 2. The recording for the new album has begun and the Casualties Of Cool pledge (currently at 490% !) is also funding the Ziltoid project. Drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen has confirmed that the drum tracks are done for Ziltoid 2. The theme of the double album is Ziltoid versus the Devin Townsend Project, with both getting their own album.
Ryan shared this message: "Ziltoid 2 drum tracks are officially done! That was the most insane day I've ever done in the studio and easily the most memorable and rewarding. Time to rest as I've got another album to record tomorrow before I fly home Monday.... DTP album is next!"

Back in April, Devin shared these tentative song titles:
From Sleep Awake
March Of The Poozers
Ziltoid Goes Home
Offer Your Light
With all due respect, I never care about Devin's music. Yeah, til he was in SYL, I liked his music and passion. Dropped his solo career, I felt little unattached and not intrested. Although, he has superb mastery of writing dark lyrics and his chain of black humor in cartoon characters is amazing but I don't know I never felt connected with him.
It's like I always ignore his news/interviews and albums lately. No, I don't hate him and his music doesn't suck but it's just like that feeling where you ought to ignore it. It's weird.
