A Tornado has Struck

July 23, 2010

Well, no. But there is going to be some more delay before I have a new playlist on grooveshark. The keystone song for my new playlist (Girls and Fast Cars by Fresh Espresso) is sadly missing from its extensive library, so we must await for my upload to be registered (there’s a latency period of up to 24 hours). EDIT – Volcano by Anti-Pop Consortium and We’re Always on the Wrong Side of Sunrise by Head Like a Kite were also sadly absent.

BUT! I do have too pieces of good news –

Firstly, in my absence, I have acquired a glut (I love that word) of new music – nearly 900 new songs, in fact.

Secondly, and this is the true excitement, I’m in the process of creating a system of smart playlists in iTunes that cycles through my music based on how well I know it, creating a fluid 15 song playlist. This playlist features 1 song I know by heart, 2 I know well, 3 I merely “Know”, 4 I sorta know, and 5 I don’t know. Songs are switched between categories based on plays, though I still have to categorize all songs at the onset (I’ve done 61 of 940 or so albums so far), and no song played in the last day will be featured. This, friends and readers, will be REVOLUTIONARY. Well, no, not really, but for me it will be. I’ll make a flow chart (not quite, actually, but similar) in Illustrator and post it sometime next week.

Here’s today’s playlist-

  1. Say Hey There by Atmosphere
  2. Unstoppable by Drake
  3. Still Got Love by Blue Scholars
  4. Stressin’ by Ace Hood (Feat. Plies)
  5. Girls and Fast Cars by Fresh Espresso
  6. Follow Us by Big Boi (Feat. Vonnegut)
  7. Champion by Kanye West
  8. Volcano by Anti-Pop Consortium
  9. We’re Always on the Wrong Side of Sunrise by Head Like a Kite
  10. Spraypaint and Ink Pens by Fort Minor (Feat. Ghostface and Lupe Fiasco)

Still a Kid

June 24, 2010

Sorry for the lack of posting yesterday – I had a little trouble with the public transit system that put a little bit of a damper on my day, so I didn’t get home ’til late and I didn’t have much energy.

After a few listens through Travie McCoy’s new solo album (you may also know him from Gym Class Heroes), I’ve managed to get a good enough hold on the songs to include one in today’s playlist, which is softcore hip-hop/hip-pop. The 1st track is from his new album Lazarus, released on June 8th.

I’ve discovered a new site – Tetrisfriends.com. I was referred by one of Kotaku’s recent posts, and it’s just what I’ve been looking for (I’ve been searching for a decent set of online tetris games). There’s some metagaming, multiplayer, various challenges, chat, friends – the works. Sign up for an account here (I get some extra tokens if you use my referral link…you know how it is).

Here’s today’s playlist

  1. Akidagain by Travie McCoy
  2. Top of the World by Ace Hood
  3. Shoot Down the Star by Gym Class Heroes
  4. Fireworks by Drake feat. Alicia Keys
  5. Feel Like Home by Fort Minor
  6. Mayday!!! by Flobots
  7. Fire for the People by Blue Scholars
  8. Road to the Riches by Atmosphere feat. Cuts by DJ Plain Ol’ Bill
  9. Marching Orders by Heiruspecs
  10. The Preacher by Brother Ali

Hello, Oblivion

June 13, 2010

And I mean oblivion as in blissful oblivion. And by that I mean SUMMER. HELL YES. Only two finals to go…

I managed to download about 40 albums yesterday, mostly classic rock and 80s metal, which I found my iTunes sadly deficient in. I also got a really interesting album of classical (which I’m usually not a fan of) by Olafur Arnalds. A few songs have some rock elements, and it’s all just very surreal. Check it out!

I’ve got a softer Hip-Hop playlist for today, which starts off slow soft and ends upbeat soft. Enjoy!

Here’s today’s playlist

  1. Between the Lines by Atmosphere
  2. Stand Up by The Flobots
  3. Cigarettes by Fort Minor
  4. Hello/Goodbye (Uncool) by Lupe Fiasco (feat. UNKLE)
  5. 25 to Life by Eminem
  6. One (Remix) by Immortal Technique (Feat. Akir)
  7. Welcome by J. Cole
  8. Strong Will Continue by Nas and Damian Marley
  9. Izzo (H.O.V.A) by Jay-Z
  10. Hey Ya! by Outkast

Recovery

June 8, 2010

I’m sure most of you have heard the big news by now – if you haven’t, let me fill you in. Eminem’s new album, Recovery, leaked last night. I have a friend claiming this is his best album. I disagree – I would say it’s Eminem Show. Any opinions?

On another, non-music related note, I’m reading an interesting article on Kotaku, about video-gaming principles. It’s actually really interesting stuff – it makes me want to get started on a game. Again. And maybe even finish this time.

And, finally, today’s Playlist. Note the track from Eminem’s new album.

  1. Top of the World by Ace Hood
  2. Lights Please by J. Cole
  3. So Fresh, So Clean by Outkast
  4. Young, Gifted, and Black by Big Daddy Kane
  5. The Things That Hate Us by Atmosphere
  6. Something for Nothing by Heiruspecs
  7. North by Northwest by Blue Scholars
  8. Bring Back Pluto by Aesop Rock
  9. Till Death Comes by Cypress Hill
  10. Cold Wind Blows by Eminem

We’re up and Running!

June 4, 2010

So, now that I’ve recovered and all, I’ve got a playlist for you guys! This is a Hip Hop playlist, so if that’s not your thing, come back tomorrow for a Saturday playlist!  I’ve decided to use MixPod for my playlists…I considered Box.net, but it won’t play .m4as, which most of my music is, and youtube, but WordPress won’t embed custom players. I’ll still have a track list for you to peruse, as well as occasional album or video game reviews, and the rare wallpaper. I should have last week’s playlist up in a little. Oh and also, feel free to suggest songs, themes, albums, games – basically whatever your heart desires.

Here’s today’s playlist –

1.Your Glasshouse by Atmosphere

2.The Preacher by Brother Ali

3.Shoot Down the Stars by Gym Class Heroes

4.Someday by Flipsyde

5.Dispear by Nas and Damian Marley

6.None Shall Pass by Aesop Rock

7.Like Toy Soldiers by Eminem

8.Kunta Kinte by Akir

9.Not Afraid by Eminem

10.Industrial Revolution by Immortal Technique
