30 Aug 2011, 01:04 by pecusitaDearly beloved, we are gathered here today to commemorate the 4 year anniversary of one pecusita and last.fm. 4 years. Who knew it would last this long?!
Even though the written communication seems to have decreased, the psycho addiction to the numbers is still as strong as ever. Heck, I've even increased one full track to average 75 plays per day, up one from last year. We're going steady, my love.
Cold Hard Facts
1st year - 47,036 (includes tracks scrobbled at sign up)
2nd year - 76,168 (+29,062)
3rd year - 98,209 (+22,041)
4th year - 127,105 (+28,896)
Number of artists in Library
1st year - 649 artists
2nd year - 1,119 artists (+470)
3rd year - 1,844 artists (+725)
4th year - 2,816 (+972)
As you can see both stats have gained significantly, up 77.26% for scrobbles and 65.48% for artists! Just like I mentioned before, a steady stat profit increase. Yes, I still use blip.fm quite a bit. To this date I have 1,379 listeners; 7,507 blips; 6,767 props. …
23 Jul 2011, 21:21 by pecusitaWell, at least one good thing happened this week: I got a Spotify invite! Yes, those of you who live on the other side of the Atlantic are probably thinking "nah, old news" right about now. But let me tell you... a party is still a party even if you arrive almost three years late.
To commemorate this glorious occasion I decided to create a massive... gargantuan... ginormous playlist. I quickly settled on one simple theme: the ever improving presence of ladies in the current music scene.
Don't know about you, but it looks to me like ladies are taking the reigns around here! This fills me with gender pride I must share. So I got knee deep in my library, searching all over and came up with... way too many songs. It looked like a headache waiting to happen, then it dawned on me: slip it in two! Duh! Some ladies still had to be sacrificed, tho.
So here are 60 tracks from singer-songwriters, all-girl or mix-matched groups. …
30 Jan 2011, 23:58 by plvaronaBetween my work schedule, and the fact that Southern Louisiana doesn't get as many concerts as other places I've lived, I did not get to see as many concerts as in previous years. However, the quality of concerts I was able to see more than made up for the lack of quantity. Here are the individual concert sets that stood out the most this past year:
As usual, there were more quality concert sets than there were spots in my top 10. Here were some of the concerts that fell short of my top 10 for the year, but I felt were of sufficient quality to earn a mention:
Varisty Theatre, Baton Rouge, LA – 3/3/2010
The first concert I saw this year turned out to be an entertaining one as Graham Colton opened the evening with an energetic acoustic set.
House of Blues, Houston, TX – 11/26/2010
This acoustic set opening for The Rocket Summer served as my introduction to Ariel Abshire, during which her strong voice left an impression on me.
16 Jan 2011, 16:06 by plvaronaBefore we get too deep into this new year, it's time for me to look back at the music that impressed me the most this past year. In terms of new albums, I felt that 2010 was a down year. Fortunately, several strong releases in the latter half of the year kept the year from being a complete washout. Additionally, the quality of the albums at the top of my list are about on par with the top albums from the last few years. Here's a look at my top albums from this past year:
While these albums fell short of my top 10 albums of the year, I felt they were of sufficient quality to earn a mention here.
Sleeping At Last - Yearbook – October, November, and December EPs
While this technically doesn't qualify as an “album”, I still want to mention what so far has been a very strong collection of little EPs that Sleeping at Last has been releasing monthly. The bands usual strengths of instrumentation and lyrics are once again at a high level throughout the project. …
