Well why the heck does it insist on re-loading that data EVERY time you go 
to the play screen. I know I have about 1800 mp3's but sorting that kind of 
data should take miliseconds, not minutes.

I'm gonna have to seriously look into fixing that code, because right now 
it's HORRIBLY inefficient. I can understand loading/sorting that info once 
when mythmusic loads up, but EVERY time you return to the play screen? Looks 
like it's time for me to learn C++ up from C.
