Save it as a script, perhaps even as an alias:

Code:
mpc play `shuf -e $(mpc playlist -f "[(%position%) %artist% %title% %file%]" |egrep $1 | grep -Eo "\(.*\)"| sed 's:).*::g' | sed 's:(::g') -n 1`
Then type at some terminal:

mpcr[andom] <artist/keyword>

(or however you chose to name/alias it)

And mpc will play a random song from the pool resulting from the keyword filter.

Posted 08-11-2010 at 05:06 AM by sridhar11

Remobo is a free software which can be used to replace the paid versions of existing difficult to use VPN setups

within the buddy list as well. Remobo lets you control your computer and access files securely while away from

Atomic Magazine now on my hitlist

Still waiting for my SheevaPlug. The website mentions the 11th of August as the delivery day, so with a bit of luck I should get it by Friday...maybe. Not sure what I'll be using it for, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. If I can get ARMedslack running on it, without totally screwing everything up, I'll be happy.
