    It's a little dorky but having a good 5x5 is incredibly based.

    thanks for reminding me last.fm exists

    does it still have any relevancy?

      last.fm is ass now, they changed it and made literally every aspect of the site worse and paywalled some shit. it's really only useful for tapmusic at this point

          tapmusic is the site people use to make 3x3 4x4s 5x5s etc
          to be honest I don't use it much anymore but collage threads have always been an enjoyable part of LULZ. it's a good way to look at a representation of what you've been listening to as well
          there used to be some other thing that would generate a collage of band logos that you could put on your last.fm page like in a sidebar

            oh, sweet.. no, yeah, those are great. collages are pretty and its a nice way to visualize your listening and not only does it have an aesthetic it does look fun to engage in musical communities online with it for sure. I like em. thank you, non.

    why don't you just rip your vinyl collection to the digital of your choice and listen to that?

    cringe and pointless yes but just have a streaming app play the album silently on your phone/computer while the record is spinning

      Is this not effectively the same? By "manual" I mean looking up the record on openscrobbler and hitting add.

      Once I dod what you're describing through spotify to get lyrics displaying in time with the music

      every leftist girl with pronouns in her bio would have a last.fm account 10 years ago. i actually went on a date with a girl i met on last-fm just because i commented on her profile and had the same taste as her. different times

        Let me guess, you think listening to audiobooks is the same as reading? Plebs like you are the cancer of this earth.

      imagine coming on LULZ and not engaging with the board culture because it's 'uncool' or some shit
      wonder why this board is dead and sucks
      keep anonymously showing us that you're too cool for it, though

        I tried it. I failed to get into it. That's why I asked these questions. I am learning the guitar if that makes you feel better.

      I know well-adjusted people with careers and social lives who have last.fm and post their 5x5s on twitter or wherever every friday. It's fun. You notice trends in your listening habits

      I used to do that, but my collection got so big I stopped using last fm. Ihad an attempt to use it again for the digital music I have, but I gave up after two days.

      I loved having statistics related to the music I used to listen to. It was like a journal, very useful for finding new new music since it encouraged me to always search for something different. I didn't care about the social aspects, but I had quite a lot of friends. Shitposting on the Opeth page was also fun.

    scrobble? it's when you track the music you listened to. in PC you download some program and let it run so last.fm knows how many times you listened to a band.

        so you have a cool profile showing off your music taste, and you see what other users are into. I discovered a shit ton of bands because of last.fm, it was great.

          it was a way to connect with people with the same taste as you, someone you knew listening to animal collective or radiohead was a big deal back then, i met tons of people that way and even went to concerts with them because of last.fm

              what do you mean? there was an algorithm in the 'neighbours' tab, but I'm talking about going to the page of your favorite artist or song and seeing an individual comment by a profile, in which you could visit, check their musical taste, and then comment on the user, or send a message. it was cool

          autistic people get hyperfixated on a topic, in this case music. its why they use last.fm to keep track of what they listen to

    I only have around 600 Beatles listens, but if i scrobbled my vinyl listens, that number would be past 10,000, easily

      if you scrobble, you might as well hook it up. only reason I could imagine deterring you would be self-consciousness of not seeming too try-hard or nerdy or petty... if you enjoy it, do it. maybe last.fm will be revolutionized into a better music-hub one day. I mean, how long would it really take to hook it up, an hour? idk. I would consider it, personally.
