26 Sep 2009, 18:40 by cheesesPay attention - this gets a little confusing.
If you scrobble 'Dmitri Shostakovich' it will autocorrect to 'Дмитрий+Шостакович', the Russian spelling of his name. OK, that makes some sense.
But if you scrobble 'Dmitry Shostakovich' (with a 'y') it autocorrects to 'Dmitri Shostakovich' (with an 'i'). It doesn't get autocorrected again to the Russian spelling, it just scrobbles to 'Dmitri Shostakovich'.
As a final, crushing blow to my testicles, I have last.fm set up to display the non-crazy-foreign spelling of crazy foreign names. So, 'Dmitri Shostakovich' - with exactly that spelling - shows up twice in my charts with two different play counts.
It's hard to imagine anything dumber than this. My head is in danger of exploding from the stupidity which it has endured from this UTTER OUTRAGE and PERVERSION OF WHAT IS GOOD AND RIGHT.
If you have any heart at all, please go here and/or here and go to the bottom of the right-hand column and click the little 'suggest a correction' link.

11 Jul 2008, 18:27 by 399796kmsI've seen these around and figured I'd join the crowd and do my own.
1. How did you get into 29?
Christopher Franke. I'm a huge Babylon 5 fan and his scores are really something. Plus he was in Tangerine Dream for a while, a big plus.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
3. How many albums by 13 do you own?
Devil Doll-4 albums (Everything except Dies Irae...and the real debut of course)
4. What is your favorite song by 15?
Manilla Road-Mark of the Beast or The Fall of Iliam
5. What is your favorite song by 5?
Frank Zappa-The Muffin Man. Obvious choice, but to be honest I'm still discovering his work.
6. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy?
The Chasm-From the Curse, A Scourge. I love that pedal-tone riff and the groovy rhythm section, an awesome intro to a flawless album.
7. What is your favorite song by 10?
Ennio Morricone-The Ecstasy of Gold
8. What is a good memory you have involving 30?

27 Sep 2007, 08:25 by iwan_manjakFor every book I read I use to create a list for listening while I read.
Now I'm starting to read James Joyce Ulysses and I can't think what music is the best for this book. I have for sure underground, from Goran Bregovic. I've added some celtic rock as Oysterband and The Pogues; and I've added also a couple of JethroTull albums. I'll also rip Дмитрий Шостакович's Jazz Suite.
But, except for Underground, I don't really feel that any of this music really fots with Joyce's book. Has anyone any suggestion for me?

1) dissecting Don McLean's "American Pie"
There is an insane amount of information and interpretation about this song that someone ought to write a thesis about it. Or maybe it has already been done.
2) re-discovering why George Harrison is my favorite Beatle
He was over shadowed by Lennon/McCartney. They did not like to put his songs on their albums. But after the group broke up, George came up with the first #1 single and #1 album by an ex-Beatle. Then he went on to organize the father of all benefit concerts.
I remember feeling so sad the day I learned of his death.
3) Waltz 2 from Suite for Variety Stage Orchestra by Dimitri Shostakovich
It gives me goosebumps... the way the audience sang while the orchestra played, the way they cheered and clapped and blew wolf whistles at the end. Shoskatovich is a Russian rock star.
4) Chinese postrock
Neocha, a netlabel, came up with an 8-track compilation. Check it out here.

11 Nov 2006, 21:40 by sunburntkamellisten to classical radio all day makes me very annoyed, and makes me miss having choice in the music i listen to a lot. so this rant is largely to keep me from ranting about this at work.
Assuming that we don't listen to classical music purely because my boss likes it and it's his name on the door, there are some basic, and very wrong, assumptions that must go into choosing to subject your employees to classical radio:
Classical radio is calming, and less annoying than other forms of music. While some classical music is calming, Die Walkure - Ride of the Valkyries, for example, is certainly not. I think Wagner would be offended at the thought. Peer Gynt-Suite is another example. 'Hall of the mountain king' is just annoying. it's poorly written repetitive tripe, but because it's orchestral, it's somehow okay to listen to at work. despite the fact the songs based on it, like Blitzkrieg or that stupid David Bowie cover (the name of which is escaping me), wouldn't be allowed.
