Jan 10 2009, 2h15I think 07 was a better year for music than 08. This year nothing jumps out as great except maybe...
The Raconteurs - Consolers of the Lonely - Jack White and Brendan Benson beat out their 1st album with this. Maybe my favorite album start to finish of this list.
Tom Gabel - Heart Burns - Against Me! guy goes solo.
The Pogues - just look them straight in the eye and say...pogue mahone!!! (this was a box set - see previous journal)
The Scars - The Scars - Great Boston Punk.
Everybody Out! - Everybody Out! - Ditto
Jason Bennett And The Resistance - Hope Dies Last E.P. - Ditto again
Flogging Molly - Float - It's Flogging Molly...what else do I need to say?
Jul 12 2008, 4h25The Pogues box set came today & I don't think I'm listening to anything else for a month. 5 CD's, over 100 songs, most never before released or demo's or live versions!
Jun 3 2008, 4h34Bo Diddley died today. And while I was not the biggest fan I wish I'd have gone to see him live. Music would not be what it is today without him. Everyone (The Stones, The Smiths, Buddy Holly, The Clash, The Who, Elvis, The Stooges, Bowie, and many more) was influenced by his "Bo Diddley Beat" You'd know it when you hear it.
Recently I went to see Dylan but missed Chuck Berry when he came. I hope he doesn't die before I can see him. Strummer & Cash both did & I regret not going to see them when I had the chance.
Anyway go listen to some Bo Diddley.

Ago 25 2007, 0h08Why does it only scrobble my iPod when it feels like it? 99% of the time when I connect it, it does not scrobble. Then, out of the blue, like last week, it scrobbles! But it only gets whatever I heard since I last connected it, not since it was last scrobbled. Most of my listening is done at work on my iPod, so most of the music i listen to doesn't get listed. Can anyone tell me why it does this?
EDIT: If anyone else has this problem go to the iSproggler group to get a 3rd party software download...it works for me.
Dez 7 2006, 3h40The taste-o-meter sucks ass! Its totally random. A person who I have a "super" compatibility with has almost no bands i listen to in their top artists. Meanwhile someone who I am "very low" with has a bunch I do listen too. Then my neighbors-who I am supposed to have a lot in common with-I have "low" or "very low" compatibility. Whats up with that??
