- 24-Mar-2023These were our jams
These were my jams by adactio showed up in my usually neglected RSS reader. I have very fond memories of This is My Jam! What a great site. I considered their exit from service super classy, and said so at the time. When I was first getting online at a place not at an “Internet…

- Finding earworms in last.fm data with PHP
Over the weekend I was prompted to think about the idea of an “earworm” — a song or piece of music that gets stuck in your mind. Some people find such “earworms” to be highly irritating. The idiom implies an actual worm in your actual ear which sounds positively *horrifying* to me. For me, an…
- Longmont Potion Castle
Part of blogging in WordPress that’s great is that I can save drafts. This is one with just a link to wikipedia and the title Longmont Potion Castle. What did I mean? Why did I save it? To research? Longmont Potion Castle: Longmont Potion Castle (born 1972) is the pseudonym of an anonymous surrealist prank…
- I started blogging in late February 2001. Each line here represents a year of blogging, a line based on the count of posts per day with a bit of added noise added for aesthetic effect. I am fascinated by visualizations of data, and it was fun to toy with the aggregate counts of thousands of blog posts over time and see an image develop. It’s not what I expected it to look like as I exported data from my WordPress instance, but it definitely catches my eye. Inspired by Peter Saville’s iconic album cover for Joy Division’s album Unknown Pleasures. That artwork was based on data from a pulsar.
- About Radio Garden. Thanks WNRN 91.9FM!
This is a sort of strange followup to my music roundup from November. I worked at Slacker Radio (now LiveXLive) for many years and enjoyed that service a lot. Now I use Spotify mostly. Before that I managed my iTunes music collection onto iPods over the years very carefully and deliberately, making playlists as needed….
- Music Friday Roundup
Yesterday I was talking to gRegor. gRegor is a chap I met at the end of 2019 when he was trying to get an in-person #indieweb “Homebrew Website Club” meetup going for San Diego. We had just a few before a global Pandemic. But meeting a kindred spirit is always wonderful. Two years have passed…
