  • "Clean Stats" Complaints.

    1 Nov 2011, 5:52

    I've been thinking lately that this old feature of last.fm's community is becoming really outdated. You've probably seen this a lot-- a mistaken artist or album name has been tacked with an image pleading with you to keep last.fm's stats "clean" by using the correct artist name in ID3 tags.

    Example: The album Funeral, as listed under "The Arcade Fire," instead of the correct name of simply "Arcade Fire."

    Now I can certainly understand the importance of preventing duplicate artists and everything. The problem is, it's not 2002 anymore. We are no longer scrobbling only from our own MP3 collection, where we are in control of the artist/album/track information. Many users are now scrobbling from subscription services like MOG, Spotify, Rdio, and the like. Clean-stats crusaders need to go knocking on their doors now.
  • Guess The Song

    Re-posted from somebody I don't know. But anyway, this seems fun, even though I predict nobody will guess 'em.



    Rules:

    Step 1: Put your MP3 player or whatever on random.
    Step 2: Post the first line from the first 15 songs that play, no matter how embarassing the song.
    Step 3: Post and let everyone you know guess what song and artist the lines come from.
    Step 4: Cross out the songs when someone guesses correctly.
    Step 5: Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING.


    1. Words fail, buildings tumble, the ground opens wide.
    2. With one or two, I get used to the room.
    3. There you go around your tiny world again, playing space man in your silver ship.
    4. Well, I tried to make it Sunday, but I got so damn depressed, that I set my sights on Monday, and I got myself undressed.
    5. Goin' out on a Friday night, drinkin' with your good friends.
    6. Can't buy me love, love, can't buy me love.
    7. While they were staring at the Citgo sign is when they lost our trail.
    8. Rockin' around the Christmas tree, at the Christmas party hop.
    9. Girl, you got to settle down, you've got me shakin' in my shoes.
    10. How long, how long will I slide?
    11. Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play?
    12. I remember the year I went to camp.
    13. Eyes are feeling heavy, but they never seem to close.
    14. Love me, love me, love me, oh baby, love me.
    15. Run run run, all you do is fucking run, but you'll never run away from yourself.
