Beard-Happy!

May 9, 2009

Have I mentioned that my new upstairs neighbor is Erin Dollar of I Made You a Beard!? I can hear her sewing beautiful chin-shag for people through my ceiling, a sound that has become quite reassuring, proof that YES! We can make a living from our art! Check out her etsy shop too.

Last.fm Listener Visualizations

May 5, 2009

Last.fm is pretty cool, the fact that it keeps track of your listening habits is pretty fun. The limited charts/visualizations of habits, however, leave something to be desired. Luckily there are a number of other Last.fm visualizers that I think you should probably check out. 🙂


LastGraph produces PDF posters of your listening trends within any time frame you choose.


While not available as an interactive, but you should definitely see the inspiration for LastGraph, this awesome project from Lee Byron.


Not as awesome as the histograms above, it relies on common tags as opposed to artist, but still fun. Get yours!



And I’ve just discovered that Rocket Surgeon, a blog dedicated to music 2.0 and digital entertainment, has put together a more comprehensive list of last.fm visualizations than the one I just started. So go check it out!
