  • Опросник номер два.

    25 May 2010, 12:26 by nrgch

    Нашел еще один опросник, тут вопросы показались поразнообразнее и поинтереснее.
    Да и время подошло - прошлый я заполнял около года назад.
    Что ж - вперед!

    1. What's your favorite song by 14?
    Zombie Girl.
    Их две, на самом деле: Creature Of Night и Sex (I'm a)

    2. How did you get into 20?
    Началось все со Spectra Paris. Вообще - у меня и в прошлом опроснике был этот вопрос, но тогда он касался Kirlian Camera. В принципе, для меня эти три группы тесно связаны, поэтому и оба ответа одинаковы.

    3. Who is your favorite member in 8?
    Beats Antique.
    Хех, а Zoe Jakes считается? :P

    4. What's your favorite lyric by 29?
    Within Temptation.
    Сложно сказать. What Have You Done, наверное, все-таки.

    5. Have you ever seen 22 live?

    6. What's your favorite album from 10?
    Красная Плесень.
    В прошлый раз был вопрос про любиму песню, а теперь про альбом. Хм...
    Куликовская Битва.

    7. Do you own any merchandise from 3?
    Нет. Да и ни к чему. Не подросток уже, делать из вещей культа.
  • Recommended Songs -- new tool discovery!

    17 Apr 2009, 04:54 by AdriaNnLA

    Ok, so a significant part of the draw to has always been the recommendations.

    You listen to a bunch of tracks that you like and through the magic of databases, algorithms, and other listeners with similar tastes; you're presented with artist recommendations courtesy of the machine.

    Their used to be a sweet feature subset of the recommendation engine that allowed groups and other users to send you recommendations to which you could also mix in to your musical discovery journey.

    Unfortunately with the most recent 'overhaul' of the site, group recommendations went away completely and personal recommendations went to pot. Instead of being displayed on a singular page and allowed to populate a radio stream of unbroken recommendations, they now appear in your inbox where you have to sample them one-at-a-time.

    Not nearly as fun nor conducive to the discovery listening process. :-(

    I'd previously found a tool (I'll stick a link in here later) that would scrape some of your…

    An artist you recently found out, a long time favorite, a new album we just have to hear, an interesting voice.. whatever. share them all.

    I will start with a few.

    Etro Anime - the beat and the melody and the voice.. purely awesome.

    Cheryl Wheeler - a new artist for me. a bit of country in there too. you shouldn't miss her.

    Helene Bøksle - norwegian singer. you know, I can't understand a word. but it still feels I understand it perfectly..

    Rosie Thomas - just listen to You and Me it's heartbreaking. I am happy to have come across her music.

    this is just the current mood speaking. I like other things at other times. :) you are welcome to share your favs too. ^^

    (to make it appear as it did for me, put the artists name into [ artist ] Artist [ /artist] and [ tag ] tag [ /tag] without spaces. just a suggestion. :))
  • 50 Questions

    20 Dec 2008, 12:13 by chiaroscuro2

    Found this journal on someone else's profile and thought it would be fun !

    1. How did you get into 29?
    Elsiane - i found them through Musetta's similar artists on and fell in love instantly :)

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
    Sia - The Girl You Lost to Cocaine (Sander van Doorn Remix) - it's funny this is more tech-house than downtempo, but I got into her original work soon after.

    3. What's your favorite lyric by 33?
    Blue States - Season Song:
    "The unfolding of the year
    and now our season is here
    all the balances are clear
    now that our time is here
    in a perfect present tense
    through a wide world's tilted glance
    when the words have all been spent
    will we still have learned it?"

    4. How did you get into 49?
    Amethystium: found out about them by accident whilst looking for dark ambient / chillout artists...

    5. How many albums by 13 do you own?
    t r y ^ d: I have 2 albums.

    6. What is your favorite song by 50?
  • Etro Anime

  • Sketch's thing that I stole

    24 Mar 2008, 21:20 by _Wanderer_

    1. How did you get into 29?
    Frou Frou - I found a random fan-made AMV of Rahxephon to Must Be Dreaming. The video was amazingly edited and the visuals went with the song so well, particularly the climax around the 3 minute mark. After watching said video I investigated both source materials, Frou Frou ended up being a good find. Rahxephon on the other hand was a complete let down.

    2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
    光田康典 - Yasunori Mitsuda, I popped in Xenogears in elementary school and from that moment on I was hooked on his music. Not only is that one of the most epic (for once that word fits the scale of the story) games, but the soundtrack blew my mind at the time. Best part is that it withstands the test of time and still sounds fantastic.

    3. What’s your favorite lyric by 33?
    UNKLE - I guess part of the lyrics of Nursery Rhyme/Breather I like. There are a lot of songs that I enjoy by them but I guess this works since it was the first song by them I really got into.

  • review: 1206

    5 Jan 2007, 08:54 by Yai

    Making weekly chart reviews is pretty tedious so I've decided to start making bi-weekly reviews. I did get lazy and miss two week so this journal will be a monthly covering December. This should make a good long post to close out 2007. So here are the top 25 from December.

    [1] Garbage - 192 plays
    Garbage still reigns as queen of my charts ever since I discovered two albums worth of songs I'd never heard before. Theres nothing I don't like about Garbage. Shirley's voice is perfect. The lyrics are amazing an personal. The music is so right in a way I'd never imagine would work. Surprising because I don't like a large majority of rock.

    [2] Metric - 107 plays
    I've been on a big Metric kick lately and have really gotten into the song Siamese Cities of there Static Anonymity EP. It's weird to say this but Metric is the prefect music to listen to in my less Emo moments. This is another one of those bands that make it seem like I'd like rock.

    [3] A Girl Called Eddy - 92 plays
