20 May 2011, 15:58 by Wormwood37Hey folks,
So, to quote an excellent band, "the preacher-man says it's the end of time." In light of the imminent apocalypse, I decided to do a radio show of end-of-the-world tunes for you. And let it be known that if the world actually does end on Saturday, I loved playing songs for you on the radio all these years. If it doesn't end, I still loved doing that, but we should also go get a beer and make out.
The final (?) playlist for Things that Are Square:
Eef Barzelay - Apocalyptic Friend - Daytrotter Session
Blood On the Wall - Going to Heaven - Awesomer
Andrew Bird - Tables and Chairs - Andrew Bird and the Mysterious Production of Eggs
The Mountain Goats - Satanic Messiah - Satanic Messiah
Antony and the Johnsons - Rapture - Antony and the Johnsons
Lowell Blanchard & The Valley Trio - Jesus Hits Like an Atom Bomb - Like an Atom Bomb
Charlie Parr - Ain't No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down - When the Devil Goes Blind

There was so many animal tracks to to choose from that I needed some kind of theme to filter through them all. Eventually, I came up with this...
According to Chinese legend, the twelve animals quarreled one day as to who was to head the cycle of years. The gods were asked to decide and they held a contest: whoever was to reach the opposite bank of the river would be first, and the rest of the animals would receive their years according to their finish.
All the twelve animals gathered at the river bank and jumped in. Unknown to the ox, the rat had jumped upon his back. As the ox was about to jump ashore, the rat jumped off the ox's back, and won the race. The pig, who was very lazy, ended up last. That is why the rat is the first year of the animal cycle, the ox second, and the pig last.
1. Rat Race - The Specials
2. Tiny Oxen - The Bronzed Chorus
3. The Tiger - DJ Shadow
13 Apr 2010, 02:21 by earthcrossingRecently I hit '1300' artists in my library, so I thought I'd make a list of them all for posterity! Of course, I already removed one of those artists frmo my library during this process (it was my music, but under the wrong name...) and there are others I can probably get rid of immediately. But I want to take care in doing so.
Anyway, without further ado...this is the result of coming on up 5 years of scrobbling here at Last.fm, and away from it (on iPod). There have been times when I wasn't able to scrobble, so a lot of data wasn't recorded then. But other than those times, this is what we have...
* A Camp (7s)
* A Perfect Circle (210s)
* A Streetlight Song (1)
* Abbe May (88s)
* Abbe May and the Rockin' Pneumonia (5s)
* Abra Moore (7s)
* Ace of Base (2s)
* AC/DC (64s)
* Adam Cohen (2s)
* Adele (2s)
* Aerosmith (8s)
* Afghan Whigs (1)
* AFI (29s)
* Aimee Allen (22s)

For this month's theme I decided not to go for light or dark songs, mainly because I didn't want to sit and listen to loads of dark flavoured music as it's too damn depressing at this time of year.

This Is Black
1. Black Gold Of The Sun - Rotary Connection
2. Paint It Black - Johnny Harris

4. Blackbirds - Erin McKeown
5. Black Feather Wishes Rise - Brightblack Morning Light
