    Shiiiii, I used to have hot chicks as my neighbors. Now it's nothing but dudes. Last.fm is whittling away my opportunities to be creepy and flirt with the hotties across the virtual fence.

    I guess I need to resume my listening of navel gazing indie rock.

    ...there's a new version of this self congratulating game.

    Behold!

    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

    786/1000


    The most similar artists for my profile are Beck (9), Modest Mouse (8), The Flaming Lips (6), Pavement (5), Violent Femmes (5), Thievery Corporation (5), Soul Coughing (5), Talking Heads (5), The Decemberists (4), Air (4)

    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

    97/100
