It's Been A Long Time

Too long, my friends, too long. So long that I feel a bit like I'm placing blog graffiti (blograffiti?) on Tom's work. But I found too cool a music service to stay silent about: last.fm.

Here's how it works: you download a couple of things, blah blah blah, and then it monitors your iTunes choices. After a sample of a few hundred songs, it finds other people with the same music taste as you, lets you make album cover collages, look at how each album you own is rated track-for-track by others, and other fun stuff.

I came upon last.fm via Slashdot, which reported on some analysis of all the online music programs. Last.fm is "by far" the best, they say. Plus, it has plug-ins for different players and alternative OSes like Linux.

Anyway, I will end this post by trying some embedded something or another, which will display my music faves for the week (I just played my iTunes top-rated songs all in-a-row this week, so this isn't indicative of my current listening habits). Here's hoping it works:
