Pre-cursor facts:
I was bored.
I listen to a lot of music
I like to keep track to what music i listen to (most)
I'm kind of smart...

I wanted to determine my favorite artists in a more certain way than the just overall/time charts. So I went ahead and calculated the statistical average rank of about 125 artists and then put those average ranks in order to determine the "real" rank of each artist. This takes into account each artist chart - overall, past year, past 6 months, and past 3 months to take into account trends while also giving favor to artists i've listened to a lot over time rather maybe an artist i fell in love with for a month 4 months ago. Below are my top 100 ranked artists with a couple of honorable mentions that I predict will reach the top 100 soon - such as just recently or soon to be receiving a new album by that artist, along with expectations of some artists on the list to rise or fall based on new albums and listening trends. In the near future, when I get bored, I will do the same, but use actual figures (# of listens) to calculate statistical ranks rather than just where on a chart each artist had placed. It will be a bit more complicated for me to do, but more accurate.

So without further adieu, my top 100 artists as calculated based on my charts through the end of June, 2008:
