Applescript to copy 'Album' to 'Grouping' in iTunes.

I wrote an Applescript that I will hopefully only need once. It copies the album tag for every track to that track's grouping tag. I needed this to "correct" the fallback shuffling method that iTunes uses when "Shuffle by" is set to "Grouping" in iTunes > Preferences > Playback. I like to shuffle by album except when I'm listening to classical, at which time I like to shuffle by grouping. If there isn't a grouping, iTunes shuffles by song rather than album, so this script is to make it behave like I want it to.

Cranking

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
