Button press with python & GPIO on raspberry pi

the code sample is taken from here.
i just use one button with the interrupt version, but i’m not quite satisfied with my dummy-button work around 😦

every button press mpd is started or stopped (see my_callback).

#!/usr/bin/env python2.7  
# script by Alex Eames http://RasPi.tv  
from datetime import datetime
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO  
import os
import mpd

# GPIO 23 & 24 set up as inputs. One pulled up, the other down.  
# 23 will go to GND when button pressed and 24 will go to 3V3 (3.3V)  
# this enables us to demonstrate both rising and falling edge detection  
GPIO.setup(23, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_UP)  
# dummy !!
GPIO.setup(24, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_DOWN)  
# now we’ll define the threaded callback function  
# this will run in another thread when our event is detected  
def my_callback(channel):
    print str(datetime.now())
    client = mpd.MPDClient(use_unicode=True)
    client.connect(„localhost“, 6600)
    #print client.status()
    if client.status()[’state‘] in (‚play‘, ‚pause‘):

# The GPIO.add_event_detect() line below set things up so that  
# when a rising edge is detected on port 23, regardless of whatever   
# else is happening in the program, the function „my_callback“ will be run  
# Stop the program with CTRL+C
GPIO.add_event_detect(23, GPIO.FALLING, callback=my_callback, bouncetime=300)
    print „Waiting for falling edge on port 24“  
    GPIO.wait_for_edge(24, GPIO.RISING)  
    print „Falling edge detected. Here endeth the second lesson.“  

except KeyboardInterrupt:  
    GPIO.cleanup()       # clean up GPIO on CTRL+C exit  

GPIO.cleanup()           # clean up GPIO on normal exit   

i used this mpd library for python (see doc for the library)
to install it, just do
  sudo pip install python-mpd2
to start the python scritp at system start add a line to /etc/rc.local
  sudo nano /etc/rc.local At the bottom, just above exit 0 we’ll add a call to our script (taken from here
  python ../myscript.py
playlists cleanup with python
add new playlists (or songs with .add) to mpc
the file bbc6.m3u contains just
