so, i thought it would be pretty nifty if we started to treat ID3 tags as malleable objects. rather than ID things with a scrutinizing and precise eye, one would play around with it’s description. i think it would be nice to begin to develop a dialogue with tracks by adding our own artwork…our own “lyrics”. add links to websites and descriptions that have a relation to the audio track. an ID3 wikipedia of sorts. i’m adding my contribution here, for a reference*:

*rather than just listen to this track, download it and play it while checking out it’s tags.
