    I will talk about this program since it is my first entry. I learned of this site thru Bungle Fever forum, to be exact through eviltoastman. I have used it pretty constantly since I am unemployed and enjoy it's features. I like being able to see what people are into day to day. I like being able to track what I have heard and see what my listening habits have leaned towards.

    I find it easier to open up to strangers when I have a common musical interest. I enjoy the broad scope of genres and artists I may have never heard. I like the demographic and ease of use. I like hearing John Frusciante Henry RollinsButthole SurfersWeenand Bucketheadall in the same place. I will probably find artists that become my current faves instead of these but I might just expand my tastes here.

    "Imagination is more important than knowlege"
    as Al Einstein said seems to become more and more relevant to me.

    So over the last couple of days I put a lot of new stuff in my music library. A lot of new stuff. So, since you all care, I figure I'll go over this new stuff now.

    Actually, first of all, I've made a little group called Ottmar Liebert's Fanmencos so if you're into Ottmar, join! And if you're not, then get into Ottmar. All the cool kids are.

    First new addition is...Genesis's The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (disc 1). Was recommended to me on the Round Mountain blog (http://roundmtn.blogspot.com/). Disc 2 was good as well, but Disc 1 I really enjoyed--and plus, last.fm doesn't have a thing for Disc 2. Oy. Listened to Disc 1 on the train to the city yesterday, rather enjoyed it. But how the hell that music came from Phil Collins boggles my mind.

    (EDIT: I am officially obsessed with this album and if you don't already have it, you should go out and get it or illegally download it now. Yeah.)

    Next is Weezer's aptly-titled album...Weezer. …

    John Frusciante

    You might know him as the guitarist from the "Red Hot Chili Peppers", but his music is quite different to the RHCP. In 2004 he released 8 (!!) albums, I've just heard two of them:
    - To Record Only Water For Ten Days
    - Shadows Collide With People

    Strange but beatiful music to lie in your bed and dream (hopefully not sleep)

    Visit his webpage, there are Instrumental Versions of "Omission" e.g.

    Shadows Collide With People
    To Record Only Water For Ten Days

    Last.fm tells John Frusciante had been Red Hot Chili Peppers band member. That explains a lot - I've been wondering how did I miss such a talented artist.

    John plays in 60's-70's style as for me, but his music is modern at the same time. I like him.

    How is his name pronounced, I wonder?
