• A list of Splendid Splendidness

    20 Apr 2007, 22:25 by Gnac

    This entry serves two main purposes: one is sort of useful and the other(s) is/are utterly stupid.

    First, the stupid reasons: to pimp this link in the artist pages of everyone I listen to, to shamelessly get people to click on it, and to annoy those who did.

    Second, to test a PHP script which automatically extracts data from Winamp generated HTML playlists - so I can honestly say that this DOES contain everything on my playlist at the time I made this entry.

  • 2006 Year-end Summary

    Yep, I'm another of these people who can't escape making a musical summary at the end of each year. However mine is rather different from the others as I create not one list but four of them! This is because I could never understand how to compare and rank albums that are totally different from each other in terms of instrumentation, expression, etc. So my list are sorted by genres, but don't take it too seriously, as we all know that the best music transcends genres and what you see here is just an intuitive selection. Making these was fun and I hope that reading can be the same...
