AudioScrobbler anyone?
« on: July 03, 2005, 12:55:43 pm »
I have statered using this fun site If anyone else is using it please let me know so I can add you to my list of buddies.  

I just signed up so my stats are a bit bizarre as I get ready for my shadow gallery show.
 
http://www.audioscrobbler.com/user/mon40  Feel free to bookmark it.
 
It has sent me contacts to the fifty people that have musical tastes similar to me.  Which you can contact.

You can tie an RSS feed automatically with it.
 
http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/rdf/history/mon40  Feel Free to Subscribe to this RDF Feed.
 
Then I was thinking of creating a group DLBN  which treats a community in the same way as individual.
 
http://www.audioscrobbler.com/group/TheDividingline_com
 
Here is a mature group
 
http://www.audioscrobbler.com/group/Neo-Prog
 
Check out the most populate Marillion Song
 
http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/Marillion
 
Scroll down and see their biggest fans.
 
Here's how it works....

It works the same as the mirc Now Playing Plugin but this plugin just send the song artist and title to their database instead of mirc.

You dont even have to be online it will cache and send next time you get on the internet.

What do you think?

I haven't had time to check this out yet, but just looking at that list makes my eyebrows rise.  What the hell is Britney Spears doing on that list?  It's the only name that sticks out like a sore thumb.  Someone has to be messing with it.

We can show up in any group we want too..

http://www.audioscrobbler.com/grouplist/Genesis

I have done my part to knock Spears down to 14th most like genesis by the way.  I think I need to get some Premiata Forneria Marconi to help knock it down furthur.  Sounds interesting anyway if anyone has some please email me when you are going to play it.  I always intrested in Italian Prog seeing as I am Italian and that genesis was thinking about calling it quits thats when selling england by the pound went to number 1 in italy and they continued on.

I'm a scrobbler user for the last several months as well. I probably started right around the same time as Cal. It's kind of a neat service, but still kind of buggy. It will be pretty awesome when they get all the kinks worked out. I have even donated a small amount of money to their cause, because I liked it so much.

I have the MP3Pro plugin for Winamp and that interferes with Audio scrobbler, so none of my MP3s (pro or not) will show up. :-(  

Hope this will be fixed because the alternative is re-ripping half my library. Sorry I am not adding to the stats.

Hmmm, well that's very odd, Frans. Write to the scrobbler people. They may know about it already and have a solution.

Or not, but it doesn't hurt to ask them.

You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.
