At the risk of stating the obvious, isn't this one of the things that last.fm does itself.../

I like how you say "used to" even though the first two bands you mentioned rank high on your 3 Month charts, too.

I didn't even know that people who like numetal and Nickelback use last.FM and/or like QC.

He's been on the boards for about a week. Guys. Congratulations.

Although, I personally have nothing against Green Day's Dookie.

Also, @ Silent, you should try some Broken Social Scene.

Hey guys I am gonna be a party pooper so i hope you don't mind.

Anyway is it just me or has last.fm relaxed their compatibility ratings? Danny pointed out to me we went from low to very high in a matter of days and then I looked at everyone i was friends with and i had gone to at least medium but usually high when i had been low/maybe medium.

I noticed the same thing. They seem to have changed the way they check compatibility as they now tell you the bands you are most compatible with rather than just the overall score.

What is this about? I don't know but it seems strange as i know i am not musically compatible with some friends but it says i am.

Also, this is my last.fm

I put it on the other thread aswell but for anybody who didn't see it, now you do.

A lot of my musix isn't represented here though because I tend to use a CD player in my room, so I guess about a third or so of the music I listen to isn't being counted, and I tend to prefer different stuff when I am in my room (reading or doing homework).

And yet you've still managed to rack up 20,000+ plays in 7 months. Is there any part of your day where you are not listening to music?

EDIT: By a very rough calculation you listen to about 95 songs a day. Holy fuck, man.

#1. Stop listening to Death Cab for Cutie

Alternatives include Broken Social Scene, The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, Postal Service (Ben Gibbard but much better)

Ok, maybe stop listening was a bit over the top. Tone down and try alternatives aswell is more what i meant, there are lots of other bands out there.

Sorry.

Guys, I have a question. Lately when I have been reading the shouts or whatever they are called on band profiles, I have noticed people posting "his music is the hipster garbage i've ever heard" with varying degrees of proper spelling.

Is this like a Last.fm meme? Like that "doesn't afraid of anything" thing?

To the_pied_piper

ya i probably do listen to way to much death cab, its a fairly band i just got into, i was really into like commercial-punk like crazy into very recently so im working on finding more like indie alternative stiff because i just find it a lot more relaxing so thanks for the suggestions and i actually just grabbed a cd by the postal service yesterday night after my post. So actual anymore suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Well, if you're trying to make a transition between punk and alternative you might want to try to find a middle ground first. Something like:

Algernon Cadwallader
Lesser Panda
Tom Vek
Miracle Fortress
Dark Captain, Light Captain

Any of these are alternative but a bit more punk or rock

and try the Andrew Bird album earlier in the topic, its really good.
