15 Mar 2009, 11:25 by jdub_dubLast night was Homegrown 09 in Wellington, and it was a really wicked day! Not as good as Homegrown 08 but still freaking cool.
Bang! Bang! Eche! - really awesome! so much fun, awesome dance pop stuff. with heaps of energy and the band members swap around on instruments a lot :)
Fur Patrol - Julia is so gorgeous and the music was mesmerising and exactly as I imagined it. difficult to dance to but amazing, I would LOVE to see them again.
Tim Phin - a DJ.
Sunshine Sound System - MC's rapping over existing songs.
The Checks - cool, remind me very much of The Strokes.
Dimmer - awesome. the crowd wasn't very big and was mostly adults, but still had a really good time. the songs were epic long jam pieces. I think Dimmer is enhanced a lot by drugs and/or alcohol -- pity I was sober lol.
KORA - holy crap, this went off like crazy! the entire tent was PACKED and I could barely see them. I prefered them in the rock stage in 08 but everybody here knew every song so well :) we bailed pretty early…
15 May 2007, 00:11 by SNAFUSOUNDTake your top 20 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 5 similar artists. The resulting number of unique artists is your eclectic score. If the score is small (extreme = 5) your musical preferences are very limited, and if it is large (larger than 80, extreme = 100), then you have an eclectic musical preference. You can compute your own score at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/eclectic.php

27 Jan 2007, 17:14 by AngelasticIn April 2005, I dropped my iPod. I'd done it before, but this time it was in the middle of doing something or other... so basically it was the straw that broke the camel's back. The hard drive was damaged, but I did manage to copy most of my tracks to my Mac (I did not have copies of them since until 2 months beforehand, my Mac's hard drive was 10GB while my iPod's was 20GB.) I then reformatted the iPod and it would work as long as I didn't fill it past a certain point, which would cause it to write on the bad blocks and need reformatting again. I installed iPodLinux on it and with the help of a little Cocoa app I wrote to split a dictionary into a whole lot of small text files grouped alphabetically in folders, I used it as a German-English dictionary, among other things. Then eventually it stopped even mounting on my Mac, so I sent it to my friend in Canada, for whom it still works to this day. I bought a fancy new iPod, of course.

16 Mar 2006, 21:54 by buzzydotinfoTaken shamelessly from the followng journal entry by AngelxDirtyFace:
1. What are you listening to right now?
808 State - Azura from the Don Solaris album. Lou Rhodes from Lamb does the vocals on this track
2. What song makes you sad?
Live - "I Alone" from Throwing Copper. Dunno why, it's just made me sad since I first heard it.
3. What is the most annoying song in the world?
I predict a riot - Kaiser Chiefs. The sooner they split the better; that man *cannot* sing for toffee.
4. Your all time favorite band?
The God Machine
5. Your newly discovered band is?
Asian Dub Foundation
6. Best female voice?
It's a dead heat between Julia Deans from Fur Patrol and Lou Rhodes from Lamb. Realistically, Lou probably wins.
7. Best male voice?
Brett Anderson from Suede, although Andrew Wood from Mother Love Bone comes a close second
8. Music type you find yourself listening to most?
15 Jan 2006, 12:10 by nooshieI know that the last team have been all nice and given us that nice sliding scale of recommendations, but it's a Sunday night and I'm bored (well, the cricket is on telly, but cricket is something best enjoyed while doing something else), so I've decided to go in the exact opposite direction.
I read about this a while ago in the forums (http://www.last.fm/forum/21717/_/67140), and basically it's a neat little trick to find out what artists you have in your profile that the people in your neighbourhood don't have in their profiles.
If I wanted to know what the majority of people listened to, I'd listen to the radio. But I'm on this site to discover things I wouldn't otherwise find (plus, I love lame statistics). I'm not going to name names, but if you think I've got these artists from your profiles, let me know!
First up, fair's fair, I'll tell you what mine are:
Soap Star Joe
Broken-up Aussie power pop bands. …
