  • 1300 artists in my library

    13 Apr 2010, 02:21 by earthcrossing

    Recently 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)
  • The Black & Orange Ball 10/21/06

    Glorious Noise has recently turned 5 years old proving that it is entirely possible to survive the dog eat dog of internet journalism. If they suddenly decided to go public, I'd buy stock in GloNo. However, it seems that they will remain independent and doing their thing for quite some time, and that's commendable. They will not allow themselves to be bought out by Google.

    The party, held on Saturday at Martyr's was an absolute blast. Everyone came out, dressed to the nines in Black and Orange. The space started out empty (although, to be fair, we got there before doors), but soon was buzzing with excitement.

    The MC was some guy the promoters had hired, dressed as the "Ghost of Steve Irwin" who did a ridiculous fake Australian accent. He was pretty obnoxious, and the belly dancer (also hired by the promoter, I imagine) seemed out of place), but, other than that, the evening went swimmingly.

    Quasar Wut Wut was the first band to play. They were also the first band to release an album on the GloNo label. …
  • Summer Songs - 2006

    30 Aug 2006, 21:07 by Tweedyzgirl

    Every summer has its anthem. There’s something about the freedom of the season…the break from school, and the break from winter clothing that seems to require a score. My summers have full fledged soundtracks. Last year’s albums were The Milk-Eyed Mender by Joanna Newsom, Blue Notes by Paul Burch & The WPA Ballclub and Arabella by Laurie & John. I wrote about this at www.Ghostwiring.blogspot.com (my former blog.) This summer was one full of discoveries of albums from the past. Some farther back in the timeline of ‘popular’ music than others. All of the albums are (arguably) from the ‘glory days’ of the bands.

    The Blacks – Dolly Horrorshow

    Ah, the debut album of a band…so young…so innocent (in terms of knowledge of the music world.) There’s nothing like the fresh sounds of an eager new band. Dolly Horrorshow is definitely one of those albums. But it’s a little dark at times…a little harsh… I wouldn’t go so far as to say it is bitter, that’s a word I’d save for their breakup album Just Like Home. …
