    Let's be honest here, 2011 has had a really terrible start. From animals dying mysteriously all over the place to a politician getting shot over the weekend. What the hell 2011?! Why won't you let us recover mentally from beating ourselves up about all those unresolved resolutions we made in 2009 and completely forgot about until it was November 2010? It's like we are moving in slow motion through a montage of an end-of-humanity disaster movie. We still have 710 days to go for that, so let's relax for a moment here and talk about something incredibly mundane like my music stats.

    Ever since I joined last.fm, I've kept an end of the year journal highlighting my most played music. I thought about combining everything in one single entry, from albums, songs, EPs and concerts to 2009's lost albums, but it seemed too long. So, this is a look back at the full albums, to start things off.

    Looking back at 2010 I will say that it was a very pop oriented year for my ears. …

  • Most Played Mid-2010

    Oh, July. Seventh month of the year. It's been incredibly hot and it makes me cranky, so I'm not in an all rant mood. I even compiled this list about two weeks ago and had not posted it for lack of motivation... still nothing. So, in hopes that the 30 or so minutes it took me to calculate this and crosscheck with last.fm scrobbles do not go to waste, I'm adding mostly one liners.

    7x2=14 picks. It's been a varied year and nothing below that managed to average double digit plays. Forth!

    14. Toro y Moi - Causers of This
    83 plays - averaged 8 plays per track

    Chill what???? All I'm going to say is that I can play this entire album on my commute to work and there's still time left to repeat a song or two!

    Most played:
    Fax Shadow - 16 plays
    Blessa - 15 plays
    Talamak - 14 plays

    Song that needs to pick up the pace:
    Causers of This - 3 plays


    13. The National - High Violet
    133 plays - averaged 12 plays per track

    What's that pundits say? Mastering your trade?…
