Discogs

Discogs is a website and crowdsourced database of information about audio recordings, including commercial releases, promotional releases, bootleg or off-label releases. The Discogs servers hosted under the domain name discogs.com, are owned by Zink Media and are located in Portland, Oregon, US. While the site was created with a goal of becoming the largest online database of electronic music, there are now releases in all genres and on all formats on the site. In fact, after the database was opened to contributions from the public, rock music began to take over as the most prevalent genre. Discogs contains over 11.6 million releases, by over 6 million artists, across over 1.3 million labels, contributed from over 456,000 contributor user accounts — with these figures growing as users continually add unlisted releases to the site over time. The discogs.com domain name was registered on 30 August 2000, Discogs itself was launched in November 2000 by programmer, DJ, music fan Kevin Lewandowski intended to be a large database of electronic music.

Lewandowski's original goal was to build the most comprehensive database of electronic music, organized around the artists and releases available in electronic genres. In 2003, the Discogs system was rewritten, in January 2004 it began to support other genres, starting with hip hop. Since it has expanded to include rock and jazz in January 2005 and funk/soul and reggae in October of the same year. In January 2006, blues and non-music were added. Classical music started being supported in June 2007, in September 2007 the "final genres were turned on" – adding support for the Stage & Screen, Brass & Military, Children's, Folk, World, & Country music genres, allowing capture of every single type of audio recording, released. On 30 June 2004, Discogs released a report claiming that it had 15,788 contributors and 260,789 releases. On 20 July 2007, a new system for sellers was introduced on the site called Market Price History, it made information available to users who paid for a subscription – though 60 days of information was free – access to the past price items were sold for up to 12 months ago by previous sellers who had sold the same release.

At the same time, the US$12 per year charge for advanced subscriptions was abolished, as it was felt that the extra features should be made available to all subscribers now that a different revenue stream had been found from sellers and purchasers. That year, all paid access features were discarded and full use of the site became free of charge, allowing all users to view the full 12 month Market Price History of each item. Discogs publishes information indicating the number of releases and artists presently in its database, along with its contributors: * Note: the Master Release function was made available from 30 April 2009. Discogs has so far created a further six online databases, for collating information on related topics. In mid-2014, a side project website called VinylHub was started for users to add world-wide information about record stores including location, contact details, what type of items they stocked, et al. In late 2014, the company released. Users can add their physical film collections to the database, buy and sell film releases in the global marketplace.

Gearogs was launched at the same time as Filmogs. The site lets users add and track music equipment, including items such as synths, drum machines, samplers, audio software, any other electronic music making equipment. At the start of 2015, the company began Bibliogs as another beta project. Users can submit information about their books, physical or electronic, different versions and editions, connect different credits to these books. 21,000 books were submitted by the end of 2016. The project was in beta phase until 15 August 2017 when it reached more than 31,000 book titles, rebranded without explanation to Bookogs.com, because of legal issues with the old name Bibliogs, removed'Beta state' notice from the main page. The next day the Marketplace Beta feature was presented. On 8 June 2019 the project has reached a total amount of 100,000 books. Comicogs launched around the same time as Bookogs, as a means for comic collectors and enthusiasts to catalog their collections and create an archive of comic releases.

Similar to Bookogs, users can contribute comics, graphic novels, strips to the database, along with information on credits, writers, etc. 18,000 comics were submitted by the start of 2018. The Comicogs marketplace was launched on 23 August 2017, allowing users to buy and sell comics from across the world. In September 2017, the company launched Posterogs. Posterogs was the only Discogs site to launch a marketplace simultaneously; the scope of Posterogs was left broad at the time of launch, with the company opting to let the community define what type of posters, flyers, or similar, should be included in the database. As users have contributed items to the database, while non-music related items are acceptable for inclusion, much of the primary focus seems to be music posters, such as gig/tour posters, album promo posters, promotional flyers -, in keeping with Discogs' music theme, though there are many film posters in the database; as with all other databases, users can save items to their'Collection' and'Wantlist', in addition to buying and selling in the marketplace.

I Dated a Robot

"I Dated a Robot" is the fifteenth episode in the third season of the American animated television series Futurama. It aired on the Fox network in the United States on May 13, 2001. After the crew sees an episode of The Scary Door, Fry decides to do all the things he always wanted to do, the Planet Express crew obliges. After demolishing a planet, visiting the edge of the universe, riding a dinosaur, one of his few remaining fantasies is to date a celebrity. Fry and Leela venture into the Internet to visit nappster.com and download a celebrity's personality. Fry downloads the personality of Lucy Liu into a blank robot, which begins projecting an image of her. Fry and the Liu-bot begin dating; the other Planet Express employees, concerned about his relationship, show him the standard middle-school film that predicts the destruction of civilization if humans date robots. Fry ignores the movie, keeps making out with his Liu-bot. Bender, offended by the concept of competing with humans for the attention of female robots, sets off with Leela and Zoidberg to shut down Nappster.

In the Nappster building, a broken sign reveals that the company is "Kidnappster". Breaking into the back room, Bender discovers that Nappster has been kidnapping the heads of celebrities and making illegal copies of them. Leela grabs the real Lucy Liu's head, the four take off; the Nappster CFO loads a backup disk of Liu, creates a horde of Liu-bots ordered to kill. Leela and the others, running from the robot horde, duck into a movie theater, where Fry is seeing a movie with his Liu-bot. Everyone ducks into the projection room. Zoidberg discovers a five-ton bag of popping corn, sends it pouring onto the robots on the theater floor; the robots eat their way out from under the corn and start shooting popcorn kernels from their mouths at the room. Fry's Liu-bot points the projector at the other robots, the heat causes the popcorn to pop, bursting the robots. At the request of the real Lucy Liu, Fry blanks his now-damaged robot. A hypocritical Bender begins dating Liu's head much to Fry's anger; the "I Dated a Robot!" movie is a parody of school propaganda films such as Reefer Madness and Cover and other after-school specials.

Bender references the 70s show "All in the Family" following the propaganda film, he both adopts the character Archie's manner of speaking and makes a play on his "Meat head" line, quite similar to Bender's own "Meatbag". The internet website Kidnapster is a direct parody of the pirating service Napster. In its initial airing, the episode received a Nielsen rating of 3.8/8, placing it 76th among primetime shows for the week of May 7–13, 2001. Zack Handlen of The A. V. Club gave the episode a B+.
