1. Sep. 2012, 3:42 von heyadamoA few days late, but I gather breaths were not being held.
TOTAL SCROBBLES = 130,981 (up the typical 20,000 or so -- FYI my scrobbles take up 2,620 pages front to back. If my scrobbled exploits were committed to paper, that would be a good hunk of a tree. *reflects* Wow. That's sorta depressing.)
TOTAL ARTISTS = 3,966 (again, right around 600 new artists join the fold this year, as per what seems to be the average. Say what they will about the moribund state of the music biz, bands are still forming, folks are still singing... and I continue to find ways to listen to 'em. BTW that is 221 pages worth of artists -- which after I think about it could be a LOT more if I don't insist on retyping in certain albums to in the artist field instead of with , and on random tracks. I'm not 100% thorough or consistent with it, but shaving the artist stat to simply the person whom album I chose to listen to is more fair to their total number of scrobbles.)
FRIENDS = 49. Also a really underrated album by the Beach Boys.

Catherine Wheel - Black Metallic
The song that broke, and betrothed Catherine Wheel to the American public, "Black Metallic" could probably be counted in the ranks of ballad -- albeit one with a droning guitar and a subsonic wailing that cudgeled the listener over the head, at the same time as caressing them to ecstasy. Surviving from embryonic material that pre-dated the band, and first previewed in a BBC Session in early 1991, the song then reappeared as Catherine Wheel's major-label debut single, giving them their first U.K. chart success, reaching number 68. It also enjoyed massive attention Stateside, thanks to the band's year-long U.S. tour. And, for those not in the know on the live circuit, MTV picked up the slack as the disturbingly spectral "Black Metallic" video slotted into fairly heavy rotation. With a deeply textured guitar drone and wallop to lead the way, and backed by a forcefully lazy drum beat, Rob Dickinson's vocals, which he renders quite tender here…

Rules: Put your playlist on shuffle and write down the first 25 songs you get...
Now take the first line from the first song, the second line from the second song, third line from the third song, etc. and put them in order below to make your scrambled song. If the song doesn't have enough lines loop back to the beginning--like if you need the 22nd line but the song only has 15 lines, you start counting again with the first line as line 16 and end up using line 7.
1. Song in a foreign kanguage? Use Babelfish to translate to English, use the translation literarly. Impossible? Leave line blank.
