100,000th scrobble extravaganza


Set 19 2010, 17h30

I DID IT! I've finally reached the 100,000th scrobble mark!!! To celebrate such an illustrous moment, I have compiled a list of landmark scrobbles with the help of the Greasemonkey Last.fm landmark script (Firefox), you can also use Kastuvas' online script.

Thanks to the script, I can say that I added 17,212 songs from my local library at sign up. To think that I lost the chance to scrobble three years of music makes my head want to spin. No need to dwell on stupid "Reset Library" decisions! Let's celebrate instead what we do have until there's a "do over" button for life.

Based on the script's calculation, my first official real time scrobble was The World Keeps Going Round by of Montreal on Sun Aug 26 2007. I kinda remember that day. It was a sunny afternoon, just like most summer days, I had a couple of weeks off from University and had absolutely nothing to do with my time. Ah, memories. I type this on a sunny September afternoon with nothing to do but a load of towels to laundry and an overloaded closet to arrange. Oh, life changes so much in three years! At this pace, my 200,000th scrobble celebration will be probably posted from my telepathic computer while sitting on my floating house terrace!

Without further ado, let's countdown the landmarks. First on increments of 5,000 then a quick countdown to 100,000 with a 1,000 scrobble increments.

    Quick add-ups: According to the Million Track Counter, I will reach 200,000 on 13th of October 2013. I will be 30 years old(!!!) Then reach 500,000 tracks on 24th of December 2022, and the sweet 1 millionth scrobble on 22nd of April 2038. Let's hope there's still a last.fm then.

    Yes, congrats! I've been pondering whether to d/l the new Walkmen or the new Blonde Redhead on emusic. I only have 18 credits so I can only get all of 1. Hmmmmm....but I am definitely *ahem* appropriating your idea when my 100,000th scrobble comes down the road.

    Thanks! Been a long time coming, ever since I hit 99,000 I've been watching it like a hawk! WeeHe. @Adam, I am biased towards The Walkmen, obviously. :)
