My TV mute is ON or OFF, and I would like it to be better.
  [vote for,

It's Friday evening and I'm listening to Planet Rock. (Alice Cooper's show, since you ask.) There are are some songs that I don't want to listen to at all, some that I want to listen to at normal volume, and some that I want at high volume (because, this being Friday evening, I'm in the mood for playing along with them; for those who don't know, I play guitar).

Sure, I can use <MUTE> for case 1 and <UN-MUTE> for either case 2 or case 3, against some preset volume level, and adjust the volume manually for he other option, but I'd like an extra MUTE-ISH button, just to save me the trouble.

       Our stereo reciever and the last two televisions we've owned have 'MUTE, 1/2-MUTE, Full-volume' features. My Dad's TV does, too, come to think of it. Check your local Home Entertainment department.

       And maybe an "emo" button. It plays 'The Cure' when it is depressed.

       Nothing wrong with that. And fie upon you, calling The Cure emo. Fie!
Alterother, Apr 21 2012

       If The Cure didn't cause you to emote in anyway, then I contend that you, sir, are not a true fan!

       Emote, yes, in the most passionate senses. But I dislike the new genre that has come to be known as 'emo' and dislike as well any comparison or association.   

       As to your contention, 'Disintegration' is one of my desert- island albums.

       Ok, I take it back. Anyone that wants to listen to "In the same deep water as you" on a desert island, wins.
4whom, Apr 21 2012

       Heh. I didn't even think of that.   

       Whoops... WAY off-topic...
