  1. Hi Jon,
    I just wanted you to know that I’ve been keeping an eye out for pepsi caps containing iTunes related stuff but I get the feeling that the Pepsi here in Canada doesn’t have that promotion running. I also tried sending you a iTunes gift certificate awhile ago but they iTunes store keeps refusing to process the order because of my Canadian address being an invalid ‘US’ address (iTunes keeps insisting that I live in the US). Anyways, I just wanted to show appreciation for the work you’ve done but thanks to the smart web developer I’m not able to.

  2. Nancy,

    Don’t worry about the gift certificate. I wouldn’t know what to buy, so I would really appreciate if you could recommend some non-mainstream Canadian music (any genre). Thanks!

  3. Hei Jon.

    cannadisk musikk: Deer Hunters er det noe som heter, mindre kjent, men P3 hadde en 1 times intervju og litt musikk av de for 1 mnd siden eller noe. overraskende bra musikk.

  4. Hi Jon,

    Great software and great work you have been doing! I can see in the changelog, that it has album support – but I cannot seem to buy a complete album (which is normally cheaper than buying the songs individually). Its this change planned??



  5. Hi Jon,

    Nancy’s post made me think of a problem I am facing too. I like iTunes, especially w/o DRMS, but here’s my problem. There’s music on iTunes-UK or Germany or France that isn’t on iTunes-US and that’ I’d like to download, but here’s the catch, since my credit card is from the US, I can’t buy/download anything, you need a credit card fro the UK to buy anything on iTunes-UK, same goes for all other countries. Is there anything you can do about that?



  6. Hi Jon

    Really nice piece of software! I’ve used it for some time, and besides the missing possibility to buy entire albums, it does everything i need it to.

    Today though, it crashed with the following message. Thought you might be interested in seeing it 😉

  7. Hey Jon,

    First off, I’m a big supporter of everything you do. Now about this bit of software. Is this project related to pymusique? I’ve done some basic google searchs for iTunes Linux and have come up with this and pymusique (I know you worked on both).
    Basically, what I’m looking for is a fully functional iTunes Store (mostly for the PODCASTs). Does SharpMusique have support for Podcasts?


  8. Hi Jon,

    Fanstastic piece of software you have here. Just wondering if at any point in the future it will be possible to buy an entire album using Sharp Musique?


  9. Excellent work as usual, Mr. Johansen. Haven’t used it, but it looks like it’s doing its job quite well.

    You were asking about Canadian music — non-mainstream stuff, Propagandhi are a pretty good punk group out of Winnipeg, but a lot of the stuff on major labels is quite good too. I’d recommend Wide Mouth Mason, a funk-rock trio from the Prairies, and Matthew Good, a personal favourite of mine and a pretty awesome fellow too, heavily involved with Amnesty International. Also be sure to check out Sloan for some good old fashioned rock-n-roll.
