Force Text for Current Mood/Music

Title
Force Text for Current Mood/Music

Short, concise description of the idea
The ability to force friends to see your custom text for current mood/music titles.

Full description of the idea
Similiarly to mood icon sets, which already allow this feature, LiveJournalers should have the ability to force their own choice of words for "mood" and "music" onto the friends page of others. Let's say I don't like music, I'm more into film. So I change the word "music" to "movie" in my journal, and write my current choice in the field whenever I update. When that entry is viewed on someone's friends page, I don't want it to say "Current Music: Fritz Lang's M." I'd much rather it says what I chose it to say.

An ordered list of benefits

  • It makes no sense to allow customization to music/mood titles if your friends won't see it.
  • More variety to your own friends page.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Of course some people will always want complete control over their friends page, so give them the option to ignore music/mood title alterations. Simple.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • It would be a seemless implementation.
  • Add a checkbox to http://www.livejournal.com/modify.bml
