1 Mar 2015, 22:36 by garynotrashcougThe other night, quietly and with very little fanfare I passed 150,000 plays on Last.fm. Pretty much one year from the day that I passed my 100,000 milestone. It's amazing to me to think that I listened to 50,000 tracks in a year, but that's only half the story. That's not including stuff I heard on the radio, live performances, friends playing music when visiting their houses, watching something on youtube which I didn't scrobble, things I heard then deleted from my scrobble history because I hated them so much.... It's amazing how much music fills your life without really trying, much less when you're like me and have music going almost around the clock.
I love Last.fm and as I've said in the past, it's sort of like "my facebook". Other people let facebook occupy much of their time and it becomes a big part of their lives. Last.fm is like that for me and the very ephemeral nature of the internet makes me worry about what I'll do if it ever disappears. …
28 Jan 2015, 11:00 by MisterJuniorI originally wrote this for a guy on YouTube who expressed a desire to get into Miles Davis, but since I ended up writing so much I thought I would cross-post it here just in case someone happens across this page and is unfamiliar with but curious about Miles as well.
Here are 10 albums from Miles Davis that in my opinion make an excellent "primer" of his overall body of work. These are not necessarily the 10 Miles Davis albums I consider to be "the best" but rather the 10 that I feel best capture the various aspects and important phases of his long and very influential and innovative career. I've tried to take into account the albums' accessibility, quality and how representative they are of the particular phase from which they're drawn.

En 1975, Dimitri Shostakovich alcanzaba la obra 147 de su catálogo con una interesante sonata para viola y piano de tonalidades oscuras, lánguidas, profundas, en la madurez, casi agotamiento, de su carrera. Simultáneamente, la música académica latinoamericana se vestía con colores similares, quizá más estridentes si eso es posible en comparación con Shostakovich o con las decadentes formas postserialistas, con la suite Popol Vuh del argentino Alberto Ginastera, que habría de colocarlo en el foco internacional, y de paso, por la temática de la obra, a la herencia indígena americana. Europa profunda está pariendo post post post cosas (minimalismo, tintinábulum, qué sé yo), para los años siguientes, pero no hallamos gran cosa en el 75.
Buena parte de Latinoamérica se estaba debatiendo entre la tradición…
