I love Amarok, and really want it to work with Podcasts, but I really
only listen to one podcast (some-assembly-required.net ) and Amarok
cannot seem to get the right Info from the file - iTunes does fine, so
I've kept using that...when I can break that link, no more OSX for me
- and it can't come too soon...

If footy was free, we could have a class war.
Let's smash Eddies' empire to the floor.
My friends and I keep talking about smashing the State,
but Olympic Sports Committee won't include assassinations.
I try so hard to be a trouble making creep,
but my phone conversations send the AFP to sleep.
If only I was a professional sports star,
Revolution would be televised wide and far.
If only Telstra Dome would fill with the lumpen proletariat,
we could have a riot, no one would forget it!
If footy was free, we could have a class war.
The Assassination Collective.
