SportsfIlter last.fm Group: I set up a SportsFilter group on last.fm and invited those people who I saw (on the Wiki) had last.fm accounts.

Thanks terrapin. I'm in. (pending the lenghty application/interview process). I hope I woo the management.

Ooh, a private group. That appeals to the elitist in me.

posted by yerfatma at 02:02 PM on February 01

If I'm rejected can I appeal? I don't really listen to avril lavigne. My gf borrowed my macbook, really.

I have applied for entry into your select group. I am not geekyguy on last.FM so I emailed you terrapin.

How do we add our shit to the wiki? Seriously - I'm that dumb.

posted by WeedyMcSmokey at 03:14 PM on February 01

I am not a Last user but did take this as a prompt to add myself to the wiki and member list.

How do we add our shit to the wiki? First thing you'll need to do is create an account. You can see the create an account link in the top right corner. After you have your account, go to the members page. It's linked on the left of the wiki. Once at the members page look at the tabs at the top and click 'edit'. Then you'll see a page where you can add your info. It can look confusing but it's not really. You can copy someone else's info and just substitute your own if that's easier. If you mess it up it's no problem. Very fixable. Also, Terrapin is our wiki guru so I'm sure he'd help you if you emailed him (or you could email me, but he'd be more knowledgeable... as are probably several people in this thread).

So, how does this last.fm stuff work anyway? I download their player and listed to the music that I have stored on my hard drive and the site builds my profile based on that? I created an account a few years ago and never did anything with it. In fact, I had forgotten all about until yerfatma accidentally sent me an email to be his last.fm buddy. I saw the email and went all "Huh?" with it and lo and behold, there I was on last.fm. The really funny part is that my user name is imam_hosayn. I guess I was on my Iranian history jag at that time.

Theoretically, if you downloaded the player it put the Last.fm . . . (big sigh) . . . "Scrobbler" on your machine, which has plugins for most media players (e.g., iTunes, Winamp, Foobar 2000). If that's up and running (little red circle in your task bar on Windows), it sends whatever you're playing back to Last.fm.

I am not a Last user but did take this as a prompt to add myself to the wiki and member list. Kinda weird that you and apoch share the exact same name, huh?

It's all good that you are contributing to the revenue of the Federated States of Micronesia. They need it now the compact payments are expiring.

Ha. "FM" always makes me think of one of those knowing "Guess you're old enough now" Dad moments: "But how does it work?" "FM." "FM?" "Fucking Magic."

posted by yerfatma at 06:08 PM on February 01

I took the liberty of moving the Facebook link to the billsaysthis line because I've never had a facebook account, or been named Bill.

posted by apoch at 07:10 PM on February 01

Yea, verily, I have no idea why any of you would care to see how much I listen to Religious Vomit or Tom Waits's bar-ballads, but okay. I guess I'm game. And sure, I guess I'll SpoFiWiki myself. Later.

Just checked in at last.fm and BANNED ALL YOUR SOrry... ummm.... I mean you all been added to my elitist group. :) We still need 3 more members to join in order for the site to compile juicy stats on our collective listening habits.

posted by scully at 07:39 PM on February 01

I think last.fm's itunes plugin just royally fucked up my library.

posted by jerseygirl at 09:50 PM on February 01

Thanks, whoever added me to the members list on the Wiki. I've been meaning to do that.

posted by goddam at 10:13 PM on February 01

Cool. Anyone who's a member can approve pending members (I just approved miss goddam).

posted by justgary at 10:24 PM on February 01

We're up to nine. Tselson is in.

posted by BoKnows at 10:53 PM on February 01

Anyone know who imam hosayn is? SpoFi Memeber?

posted by BoKnows at 11:30 PM on February 01

(I just approved miss goddam) thanks

Whoa, that was fast. Been gettin' my Leonard Cohen fix...thanks. Never heard of the site, trox' Nightswimming did me in. (via, Exhuming McCarthy...etc.)

I am in but not as HATER. Look out for Elroy333.

posted by HATER 187 at 01:16 AM on February 02

I'm in, not as apoch but apoch'o'lolypop'o'lypse. Okay, not really. I'm apoch on there as well. Although if I ever do fantasy sports again I have my team name.

posted by apoch at 06:00 AM on February 02

Anyone know who imam hosayn is? SpoFi Memeber? What, you have me on ignore or something?

posted by NoMich at 07:43 AM on February 02

Cool. Gary figured out that I set it up for all members to be able to approve new members. I approved the last 3 requests, so we are up to 12 now. Enough for the group listen habits to be charted, but we can always use more!

posted by scully at 08:06 AM on February 02

Damn I just spend about 30 minutes editing my page and I got HTTP Error 403... Apparently "my request" was blocked because of malicous automated requests from my computers IP address.

Ill join but my lastfm nic is JustJamey (sorry gary but its been a nic since about 1977 and I still have friends that call me that).

posted by Folkways at 09:54 AM on February 02

Damn thing makes me so self-conscious about what I listen to. I mean, I like Hefner, but Last.fm makes me look like their version of the groupie from Flight of the Conchords. You're all set Folkways.

posted by yerfatma at 10:32 AM on February 02

Enough for the group listen habits to be charted We'll see after the first chart if that's a good or bad thing. I'm hoping the few times I've listened to toby keith helps. Just doing my part.

posted by justgary at 11:10 AM on February 02

What, you have me on ignore or something? Sorry, Nomich. It was late. Plus, I'm an idiot.

posted by BoKnows at 11:32 AM on February 02

I'm pending. Cunningly, I'm called "MrBismarck."

Got ya Mr. Bismarck.

I don't see my name on the spofiwiki page member list - I set up an account but how do I get on the list?

posted by skydivemom at 06:43 PM on February 02

skydivemom: you copy a line, paste it and change it to reflect your info.

posted by scully at 07:13 PM on February 02

I'm pending. Under same name. I'm not afraid to show the world how much shit I listen to.

posted by qbert72 at 10:04 PM on February 02

I'm pending. You're in. Looking forward to much shit.

posted by justgary at 10:34 PM on February 02

Oh, yeah, thanks terrapin.

posted by tselson at 10:41 PM on February 02

I've added my name to the wiki list. Also, I fixed the order so that it was alphabetized. I do not, however, have any intention of sharing my musical taste with the rest of the world. I'm ostracized enough for being a supernerd, I don't need to ostracized from the supernerd crowd because of my music.

Speaking of the CD swap . . .

Speaking of the CD swap . . . Was wondeing myself....

posted by Folkways at 06:04 PM on February 03

Speaking of the CD swap . . . I haven't heard from Sammy since December. He's usually the one that puts the groups together. I'll try to resurrect it this week. Maybe we can get some more participants now that the holidays are over.

posted by goddam at 07:09 PM on February 03

I added myself to the wiki and applied to the last.fm group too!

posted by afx237vi at 08:28 AM on February 04

You (and The Fiery Furnaces) are in.

posted by justgary at 08:36 AM on February 04

I applied. Someone approve me please.

posted by jerseygirl at 05:41 PM on February 04

You (and the Foxboro Hot Tubs) are in.

Ooh, we have a chart now! Go Sonic Youth! I had them in the Exacta in the 9th.

Hooray thanks

Me too! Me too!

Gotcha nemo, you're in.

posted by BoKnows at 01:56 PM on February 05

I'm pending. Judging by what I've seen from the charts my taste in music is quite different.

posted by Ying Yang Mafia at 06:14 PM on February 05

You're in, YYM. The charts will change pretty dramatically next week. There has been alot of new members and listening going on.

posted by BoKnows at 06:25 PM on February 05

I just clicked on the "join this group" button. I assume this means I'm pending. Anybody got my back?

posted by hawkguy at 06:59 PM on February 05

You're in Hawkguy.

posted by BoKnows at 07:12 PM on February 05

Thanks. I'm sure you all will find my music pedantic, but what can I say? The "Monster Ballads" alone are worth it!

posted by hawkguy at 07:20 PM on February 05

I signed up this evening. Unfortunately, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Philharmonic, and the Esterhazy Quartet are not in the available downloads, so I'll leave my musical profile out of this. Thanks, terrrapin.
