  • Bevidsthedsindsnævrende last.fm

    10 Apr 2006, 22:39 by under_byen

    Som snart 4 måneder gammel bruger af last.fm føler jeg at det er på tide at vurdere lidt hvilken virkning dette fænomen har på min musiklytning. Altså: hvordan indvirker registreringen af numre på de valg jeg foretager når jeg lytter til musik i winamp.

    Her må først komme lidt fakta på bordet:
    Jeg har så godt som hele min cd-samling lagt ind på min computer som mp3-filer, hvilket muliggør at jeg sjældent behøver at lytte til musik der ikke befinder sig på computeren. Jeg har også en vinyl-samling, men lige pt. har jeg ingen pickup, så den bliver ikke brugt.
    Ergo: Hovedparten af min musiklytning foregår via pc'en, og bliver altså således registreret via last.fm

    At installere audioscrobbler-plugin'en virkede umiddelbart som en ganske morsom og interessant idé, da det for det første er sjovt at få ført lidt statistik over hvad man lytter mest til, samt blære sig med at lytte til en masse sejt og super-alternativt musik som andre med garanti ikke kan holde ud at lytte lige så meget til som jeg kan!!
  • 7000 tracks...

    9 Apr 2006, 18:50 by jcallari

    Okay... 7000 tracks as of today...

    I did a little analysis, and here's what I came up with...

    7000 songs in 131 days.

    53.435 songs a day.

    At an average of 5 minutes per song, that equals approximately 4.45 hours of music per day.

    At an average of 4 minutes per song, that equals approximately 3.56 hours of music per day.

    I'd love to listen to more music per day, but it is a bit difficult. At work, I do most of my listening... but on days where I'm doing a lot
    of running around, I can't keep the iPod with me... so there are some days where I don't do much listening at all. That's where the stats get a bit skewed.

    Thanks to Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai, The Smiths, Scarling., Morrissey and She Wants Revenge... that's what I've been listening to
    mostly as of late...
  • Another survey thingy....

    8 Apr 2006, 00:18 by jamesdelve

    1. What are you listening to right now?

    Feud At Saint East's

    2. What song makes you sad?

    A few, Oasis's Stop Crying Your Heart Out. Rem's Everybody Hurts is an obvious one. David Bowie's Space Oddity for less obvious reasons and Louis Armstrongs What A Wonderful World

    3. What is the most annoying song in the world?

    Hmmm, tempted to say something obvious like Peter Kay or Timmy Mallet, but that stupid fucking Black Eyed Peas song, you know 'my lovely lady hump', is fucking ridiculous.

    4. Your all time favorite band?

    Can't possibly say. Radiohead? Weezer? Faith No More? Deftones? Mastodon? Isis? Nah it's not possible.

    5. Your newly discovered band is?

    Julia Thirteen - beautifully epic.

    6. Best female voice?

    Hmm I couldn't say, the woman from Architecture in Helsinki, or the one who sings with The Postal Service.

    7. Best male voice?

    Mike Patton, Thom Yorke and maybe Mr. E ?

    8. Music type you find yourself listening to most?

  • I'll have the gay marraige, medium rare...with a side order of mudwrestling.

    OK, so my pseudo-sister/close friend/roomate, known to some as Amy Christ, is getting married. I just thought I'd pass this little tidbit on to last.fm.

    Why? 2 reasons mostly...

    a) I'm a lazy bastard. It's true. I tend to rant, however, and have somtimes turned posts into novellas. But if there's a specific task to be done, I procrastinate. It's not that I try to. I just don't think about it. I space out, catch up on comics, browse eBay, find some new music and d/l it, wank around with various software, act an ass in GD, change distros, and basically do everything there is to do on the intarnets EXCEPT the task at hand. That being said, this paragraph is proof that when I sit down and type, the words do flow...even excessively at times.

    b) I've been meaning to start actually using my journal for quite some time, but everytime I get either frustrated or inspired by life enough to write about it, things seem to change so rapidly that anything I have mentally cached for journal fodder is rendered obsolete. …
  • Best albums of 2004

    3 Apr 2006, 18:13 by The_Declaration

    I'll talk a bit about what I think were the best records of 2004 (according to my own tastes, of course). Probably not a memorable year, but still a bunch of good tunes... Let's get started.

    10. Is There Love in Space?
    Satch is releasing an album about every two years, and after such a long career in the music industry, it's a proof he's still very active and passionnate about what he's doing (or badly in need of money). Is there love in space? is a very solid record from the virtuoso: there's a decent amount of solos, most of them being pretty well-crafted, but the best qualities of the record are Satriani furthering his quest of unknown sounds coming from a guitar. "Searching" is an incredible moment on the album, with Satch doing what he does best at the moment, and a few other songs have that experimental feature too ("Is there love in space?"). Is there love in space? is a good album, probably not one of the best Satch did, but it's really good and shows he hasn't lost his magic touch.

    Bought Yanqui U.X.O..

    Let's play hang-man to find the word to descride this album:

    - W_W.. (And no, it's not a weird smiley.)
  • Explosions!

    2 Apr 2006, 01:38 by PauPeach

    This is one of my favorite discoveries in years, this band is one of the best exponents of instrumental experimental indie rock..similar to bands like Godspeed You Black Emperor! and Mogwai.

    I got "Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Die, Those Who Tell the Truth Shall Live Forever" one masterpiece for me...they creates a special atmosphere, relaxing and tender. Just exciting! The great drums march and a shot on "have you passed through this night" and the following "A poor's man memory", the bass and rhythm in the beginning with the song "Greet death"...I could keep writing about this album..

    "The Earth is not a cold dead place" is my next buy (with pelican..hehe) another great album with a melancholic sound.....anyway :) Explosions in the Sky
  • With All My Powers (I Create a New Journal Entry)

    31 Mar 2006, 15:54 by CircleTriangle

    Hey Hey.
    What's going on?

    I'm just updating everyone on my status a bit.
    Two major additions to my playlist, the first being Black Heart Procession for their gloomy piano ballads. They trump Coldplay any day...

    The second major addition is Godspeed You! Black Emperor's Twenty-Three minute long epic, Sleep.
    The first five or so minutes are a bit dull, but after that it really picks up.

    I've been going through a long, long alphabetical list of new bands I want to listen to, but I've kind of burnt my self out. I'm stalled, and I'm only at Controller.Controller!

    Finally, here is a list of albums on my wish-list (for when I have money >_>)

    Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not
    At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command
    Built to Spill - Perfect from Now On
    Built to Spill - You in Reverse
    The Flaming Lips - Clouds Taste Metallic
    The Flaming Lips - At War with the Mystics
    of Montreal - Satanic Panic in the Attic
  • Explosions in the Sky

    30 Mar 2006, 06:07 by Televiper

    There is something magical in the way Explosions in the Sky weaves they're instrumental mix of guitar, bass, and drums together. When I first heard the thundering drones of Help Us Stay Alive I was hooked. But, I have to admit it took awhile before I truly began to realize the depth in their music, and the emotional power it carried. At the time I was listening to a lot of other post rock bands like Godspeed! You Black Emperor The Rachel's Tortoise and Do Make Say Think where I saw the expansion of music territory in the use of more sounds, more instruments, and more techniques. At that time I had a general disdain for rock based music (and I still do) and was fairly cynical that a band with 2 guitars, a bassist, and a drummer even had the tools to match what I was listening to at the time. Time has proven me wrong in some ways. Explosions in the Sky has proven to be an emotionally power and provacative band. They bring an unbelievable amount of colour and character out of the traditional rock arrangement. …
