"Decent Little Proggy for a Soup Chef"

September 21, 2006  |  By Dave Larose

 |  Version: The Music N*** 1.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Geez, get over it, I suspect the Author is merely a Seinfeld fan..?

Useful little alternative to iTunes, good timing for me with how horrid iTunes 7 is turning out to be, first awful release from Apple in Zootons (yes, Zootons!).

See Ya

"What's In a Name?"

June 16, 2006  |  By Mr Tea

 |  Version: The Music N*** 1.7

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.

This is a nifty piece of software, a fact that is becoming obscured by all the knee-jerk reactions to its humorously descriptive name. Perhaps Americans have a different relationship with the word Nazi to British folk. Over here, we don't automatically assume that using the word indicates approval of Adolf Hitler and his National Socialist party's policies against Jewish and other non-aryan peoples. (Similarly, we don't automatically associate the word 'Jew' with the murder, oppression and forced relocation of Palestinians.)

It is, after all, more than sixty years since Hitler and his armies were defeated. The word has subsequently become dissociated from its original form as an abbreviation of 'National Socialist' and now simply means someone with prejudiced and inflexible opinions that they want to impose on everybody else - hardly an endorsement of the original users. Why give the word power and status by getting all screwed up about it? There are far more serious, contemporary and relevant issues to get your knickers in a twist about.

Around 1500 years before Adolf started doing his thing, another bunch of war-mongering Germanic Aryans called 'Vandals' were making themselves unpopular in mainland Europe and North Africa. They too were defeated, and no-one seems unduly disturbed by the fact that the word 'vandal' now means someone mindlessly destructive. Surely we don't need to wait another 15 centuries before we are free to use 'nazi' as a derogatory term without bringing a bunch of hysterical, hand-wringing fools out of the woodwork.

"Cool"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Works. Does what it says. I'd like to have the UI dressed up a bit (brushed metal option to make it look more like iTunes?) and include a "Browse" feature like iTunes. It would also be cool if there was a way to make this run as screensaver or go full screen or float it and black out the desktop completely. Good product, through. Not sure how I feel about it stopping the Finder while in kiosk mode, but that's a minor concern.

"Grrrreeaaaaat!"

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
This is a great app and a set of features I've been needing for a long time now. I hope the developer keeps up the great work and keeps adding new features. As for the name, I'm really surprised it's such a big deal. It's alright for Jerry Seinfeld to use the term "Soup Nazi" and turn it into a cultural phenomenon and part of the current vocabulary, but the term cannot be applied in another scenario? If anyone watches TV in North America you will hear the term "Soup Nazi" being used by TBS for it's Seinfeld commercials, I have a feeling the developer named this great app in that same comedic spirit.

"Awesome"

June 01, 2006  |  By roorooroo

 |  Version: The Music N*** 1.2

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
How elegant. How simple. Does what it says it does, well. At whatever price you choose. Who can argue with this? The name? Whatever...

Like I always say about names, The Beatles is a stupid name for a band. And as you all know, it hurt them.

The holocaust must never be forgotten. Naming this program MusicNazi does nothing to lessen the horror and atrocity of Nazi Germany. Any use of the word nazi only provides another opportunity to keep the memory alive, if you choose to use it that way.

Seinfeld's soup nazi was one of the funniest episodes of tv I had ever seen. It did not diminish the memory of the deaths of innocents. This software's name is clearly a tribute to Seinfeld. Could the earlier reviewer not have known that?

Soup nazi, music natzi, femi-natzi or software-naming nazi are all just words.

People! Can't we all just get along? Can't we just rate the software?

Perhaps the icon is offensive. Perhaps you could send a gentle note to the developer telling him you are offended, instead of condemning him and his software here with ad hominem attacks? He might be surprised and sorry. Or, do you choose to believe that a guy who wrote a nice program and gave it to you for free is just an evil racist bastard?

Don't ever give up, just lighten up!
