    Lightbulb WipeoutZone audioscrobbler/Last FM group

    I cant find the original thread for this, but we have a WipeoutZone group on Audioscrobbler/Last FM and I thought it would be a cool idea to populate it in the same way as we did the Frappr one.

    Here's a link to the group - tell a friend:

    Here's a link to my profile - add me as a friend:

    All you need to do is download the audioscrobbler plugin for whichever media player you use and all the music you listen to will be added to your profile. What's so good about that? Well, it recommends neighbours (people who listen to similar stuff) so you can broaden your horizons, and eventually you can listen to your own radio station populated by your kind of music.

    I'm on too - the name is "TomatoJoe". I might need some help how this whole "radio thing" works, though. I'll try out the programms I downloaded this weekend and I'll post all my questions here if I have any by then, ok?

    No problems Tom - the radio thing for me is just an added bonus, I've only used it a couple of times to try it out and it does work. What is cool about the radio is that if I forget to bring in some discs I know that I still have access to most of the music I'm into as well as some stuff I might not have considered before.

    The fun bit for me is just building my profile and seeing how it grows, seeing what neighbours I have, and checking out others' profiles to see what they're listening to. It makes my choice of which CD's to bring in to work a bit more considered, as I like to keep expanding my profile.

    No idea - looking at their activity rate their group is about as quiet as ours... might be wise to combine forces.

    LOL!

    Funny you should say that - my girlfriend listened to a lot of Britney and it all got logged to my profile. As soon as they gave the ability to delete artists from your profile I was right in there.

    This kind of flies in the face of that time I stuck up for Britney over Sophie Ellis Bextor, I know, but for my own peace of mind she had to be erased!

    It can happen to anyone - check out this guy's "about me" box:

    [reveals dark secrets] i've recently been listening to a lot of western-style country music, i.e., Merle Haggard, Jerry Jeff Walker, Emmy Lou Harris, Big and Rich, Billy Joe Shaver, and uh, Death Cab For Cutie.

    I've been known to listen to a bit of Garth Brooks in my time, too.

    I'm more of a Johnny Cash man, (no I haven't seen walk the line yet)
    and a bit of Kenny Rogers from time to time...

    they're the gateway drugs of country

    yazoo. yahoo! yaz was a good combination, vince clarke and alison moyet. both of them pretty much tops at what they do. did anybody but me ever notice how much andy bell sounds like alison?

    edit: er.. not that any of you macho fellas would ever listen to Erasure. *cof*

    Re: Garth's 'Rodeo': i sorta like it, but right now i'm on an 'honest unaffected real emotion' kick, so the artificially styled vocals, though fun, just don't strike me the right way in my current phase.

    Standing outside the fire is a brilliant song - sometimes overlooked because Ain't going down 'til the sun comes up and Callin' Baton Rouge are on the same album and they're probably better airplay songs.

    I wonder if I'll get any Garth Brooks on my Last FM personal radio if I listen long enough? I have listened to an album or two, so I guess his tracks will be mixed in there somewhere.

    Nice one - we need four more members to get our weekly charts generated.

    Come on people - where are all you music buffs when we need you?
