As if I needed another excuse to be anal about music

Last.fmOne of the great things about the iPod and iTunes is that, apart from the ability to listen to any song I want with just a few clicks, it feeds the habit of a statistics junkie like me. I am addicted to tracking the play counts of my songs, and have even gone so far as to scold Mrs. Suit for skipping a song on the iPod before it finished, because doing so meant it wouldn’t count as having been played. Yeah, it’s that bad.

So now I’ve discovered last.fm, and my world of borderline-obsessive music tracking is even bigger. You see, it’s no longer good enough for me to know how much I listen to certain songs or bands – now EVERYONE can know, and I’m loving it! Yes, the word scrobbling is now a major part of vocabulary, and I’m loving it. Now I’ve got charts and pretty pictures to show me just how much time I spend listening to music, and I’m loving it. Now I can see who else has voluntarily listened to Frank Stallone’s classic anthem of affirmation, “Far From Over,” and I’m loving it.

As soon as I can figure out how to integrate my list of recently listened songs with this blog, I think I can die happy. That may take awhile though, as I’m less savant and more idiot when it comes to that stuff. In the meantime, you can check out my last.fm profile and immerse yourselves in my beautiful musical world.

  • I like the design overall, although it could use a few tweaks (the columns on either side are cool, but it gets a little confusing as to which side will have what). But I’m glad you kept your faceless man header as that rocks.

  • A friend! Huzzah!

    Also, I wasn’t really looking for a new design, but I stumbled across this one and liked it. Unfortunately it’s not as user-friendly as the old one, but life is full of compromises I guess.

  • Welcome to the club. I’ve been meaning to write about it for quite some time (since they did their re-design and switched from AudioScrobbler to Last.fm like 2 years ago). Now they can stop telling me that I haven’t made any friends!

    And what’s up with the monster re-design?
