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

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
