• George Carlin - R.I.P

    23 Jun 2008, 5:46

    As many of you may or may not know, as of 6:00pm PT, George Carlin died in Santa Monica, California at the age of 71, due to heart failure. Most of you most notably know carlin with his "7 words you can never say on radio or TV"....many of you don't. Many of you have seen him live at some point in time (I wish i could've)...but, again, some of you haven't. Most of you have seen his 17 unbelievable HBO specials...and, well...you know the rest.

    As a show of respect, George Carlin will be featured on the Podcast this week. Most of his stuff, including his most recent HBO special just done last year (It's Bad For Ya) will be featured. I have yet to put the show together, but, have a few ideas.

    As many of you know - George celebrated his 50th year in show business in 2007.

    *EDIT* - I ALSO Believe that George would want his stuff SHARED! So, here are 3 torrent links so you can "Pay your Respects" lol

    -13 HBO Specials: http://www.mininova.org/tor/1110495

    -His New HBO Special "It's Bad For Ya": http://www.mininova.org/tor/1212887

    -19 Albums, 3 Audiobooks, 1 Special: http://www.mininova.org/tor/1320300

    These will COMPLETE your collection! :D Enjoy guys!
  • You might just see one artist at a time flooding my recent tracks....lol

    9 Jun 2008, 0:32

    Here's the explanation why. I use iTunes, and, i'm getting sick of shuffle mode. Why? Because, when ya have no songs rated (Because it seems like i have to remove all tracks and import them back in at times) - the "Smart shuffle" seems to suck. And, i'm getting tired of hanging out with friends in the living room, and a shitty song comes on, and, i have to go back and forth fuckin skipping songs lol.

    So, enough of that. I'm going through bands and artists of mine 1 by 1, rating all the songs. That way, the smart shuffle freakin' works properly!

    And, the bonus - i get my play counts up! :D lol.

    So, if ya see 1 artist just flooding the recent tracks - this is why :) I know some people hate it, cause it seems to "Boost" artist plays on artist pages - but, meh - i figure whenever ya listen to a band...it does it anyways :P

    So, get used to that :)
  • Me? Anti-Social? Could it be?

    7 Jun 2008, 9:42

    That's right - i'm being anti-social for awhile on last.fm. Sure, i'll be around here - but, will i talk...maybe only to shawn :)

    Why? Well, a number of reasons - reasons i'm not gonna go into "deeply", But, i'm busy with other things - trying to get my life in order (To a point, there's only so much 1 person can do) - trying to get a girlfriend (I have 2 prospects, and both look very promising :) - and facebook - my real main hangout.

    if ya wanna say "Hey" or whatever - i might say something back - but, don't hold your breath. It could take a few hours, a few days...maybe a week lol.

    Oh - and, if ya have a fuckin problem with how i look in my display pic - do us all a favor and shutup. is everybody that fuckin superficial nowadays?

    And, if ya have a problem with all of what i just said - get used to it!
  • This is AWESOME - Try this!

    In a week or 2, i'm gonna compare again. Cause, i got into french-pop now (No, not celine lol.) But, here we go!

    Take your top 50 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 20 similar artists (where the artist itself is the #1 most similar). The resulting number of unique artists is your super-eclectic score. You can compute your own score at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/supereclectic.php


    My super-eclectic score is currently

    496/1000



    The most similar artists for my profile are Papa Roach (10), Breaking Benjamin (9), Linkin Park (9), Three Days Grace (8), Staind (8), Disturbed (8), Trapt (7), Lewis Black (7), Dane Cook (7), Denis Leary (7)



    Take your top 20 artists. For each of these artists, collect the top 5 similar artists. The resulting number of unique artists is your eclectic score. If the score is small (extreme = 5) your musical preferences are very limited, and if it is large (larger than 80, extreme = 100), then you have an eclectic musical preference. You can compute your own score at http://anthony.liekens.net/pub/scripts/last.fm/eclectic.php


    My eclectic score is currently

    78/100

  • OMG - i found a NEW SINGER!

    18 May 2007, 3:30

    So i was checkin out the NBC Website lastnight. I was bored, so, i checked the "Music" section lookin for some new music i haven't been "Exposed" to. And, what i stumbled upon...omg. From the show "America's Got Talent", i found out that the winner released her first CD last year in November.

    Some of you know who i'm talkin' about. I don't watch the show, never have. But, she's 13 year old Bianca Ryan

    Her debut CD is AWESOME! She's got a fantastic voice for only being 13...she sounds more like 18 or 19. I couldn't believe it when i read she was born in '94.

    Kinda reminds me a little bit of JoJo. You guys have to check her out! She's fantastic!

    Now, don't tell me i don't reccomend music to any of ya :P lol
  • Getting the Library back

    6 Feb 2007, 11:08

    Well, i got my new computer today (Still waiting on my upgrade to Vista Home Premium)...anyways....i am in the middle of ripping, and all that other stuff, trying to get my music back to the point where it was before the new computer.

    The only difference? 2 250 Gig hard drives to work with :D But, only 1 of 'em is gonna be for music...i think....i dunno, we'll see :P

    Anyways, the charts will seem pretty bland around here until the middle of next week...when, hopefully, i'll have it all, if not more of what i love, back where it belongs....on my computer! lol.
  • 30,000?

    So, i'm takin bets on when ya guys think i'm gonna hit this next milestone :D lol.

    I'm past 28,000 now...so, 2,000 more, and i'm set. It took me a little over 3 days to hit that 20,000 mark in December....and, i was over 18,000. So, do ya guys think the same result? Or, longer? Maybe even shorter? lol. Come on, take a guess!

    28,102 count as of 3:37am MT on February 2nd (Well, technically lol)
