I hope that all the last.fm users and readers are well, keeping warm/cool (please delete as appropriate ;) ) etc...
Am currently listening to the album "Nowhere" by Ride (am on Track 1, "Seagull"). Spent some of yesterday listening to "Juggernaut Rides" by Swervedriver. Haven't finished listening to it yet, but enjoyed what I did hear... ("Duel" is amaaaazing!! I see the NME loved it so much they gave it the Single of the Week accolade a week before it was released! I read the sleevenotes yesterday, too... ;) And "Planes Over The Skyline" is certainly registering with the Audioscrobbler in my head... It's so infectious! Planes Over The Skylineeeee... )
It is not actually my first last.fm anniversary until tomorrow! Tomorrow will be my first last.fm birthday! But, I have a feeling I'll be too tired to write tomorrow - I have been feeling very tired recently... (Really tired! I have to do something about it - lots of things about it! Eat properly - I hear that bananas are good for energy? But I do not care for bananas - not really at all! Errgh... ;) ) So, I will write this now... (Is it 2nd February in Australasia now? Apologies if it is not... So I'm celebrating my birthday on the 2nd Feb in Australasia, which is indeed the correct day for me to celebrate? Oh, sigh... )
I thiiink my first ever last.fm song was "Satin Doll" by Hooverphonic! (I wanted my first song to be a song that I really really liked... ) My first last.fm album? Well, I'm guessing it was a Depeche Mode album... (Or, maybe not! I've a feeling it might have been the Bloc Party album "Silent Alarm"! My Uncle gave me this album to which to listen. I really like the song "Two More Years".)
My Uncle (who is a big music fan... Though we don't really have the same tastes. My Uncle does not care for Depeche Mode, and I think they are sensational, one of the most wonderful special amazing magnificent things to ever happen to the world of music! See what I mean? *sigh* ;) ) gave me a few other CDs to listen to around that time as well: I'm afraid I did not listen to the Babyshambles CD or The Strokes CD (yet! I'm sorry... I still have them! Who knows, those two acts may be doing well in my last.fm charts before one knows it... ;) ). I did listen to the Arctic Monkeys CD. I see that the Arctics have a song which features my name! It is called "Cigarette Smoker Fiona". Okay, it's not "Goddess Fiona" (which would have been a lil' better, guyssss... ;) ) but I guess I have to hear it first! I will have to listen to it one day.
I'm so very very pleased I signed up to this site! I can't imagine Internet without last.fm now, actually... I have been in correspondence with great people, and my music collection has certainly been enhanced as a result of this site.
And I think of the music of which I wasn't aware in February 2006: I had not heard of Slowdive! (Well, I had heard the one song, "Some Velvet Morning"... ) And now I listen to them incessantly!
So, to all the people behind this fine website, the people behind Audioscrobbler, etc... Very many thanks indeed! Thank you, thank you... :)
Many thanks to anyone who has read this,
Best wishes to all,
PS. I want to be like my new Avatar, Shilpa Shetty! Someone who is classy and dignified and graceful... She is also so beautiful... I am very pleased she won "Celebrity Big Brother"! I have to work at being like her - I don't know about ever looking like her... *sniff* ;)
