Can anyone tell me what the deal is with LastFM.com ?

9:55am choggie:Plants live a thousand lifetimes in a matter of months....their job is to replicate DNA and survive. It's their JERB! 9:58am annie:all the plants i have are destined to become short and squat, all bonsai. i just bought some sapling plants: Japanese black pine, two different oaks, a cluster of 3 crape myrtle, a trio of redbud; and i already have a nice jade, a chinese privet in a small glass dish, a sad upright fushia(sp), .... and i gave away all the plants that MUST have sun. the window these are in faces northwest.. a grow-light is in order 9:59am queems:@annie my mom just got a couple small clip-on grow lights and so far she loves them 10:03am monk:good morning Dad if you're reading this 10:04am annie:hhmm. i'll have to see what's out there, i bet a nice selection. those of you who know me on FB will see the pics.. 10:08am melinda:That sounds like a cool project Annie, looking forward to the pics. My common areas don't get the sun I would need for some of the plants I want, so I'm growing more pothos (or as I learned from one site "Devil's Ivy"). 10:09am WilliamfromDumont:What? No love for Revelation Revolution '69?! 10:15am annie:i'm actually going to post a shot of my view with a morning-light aspect..then you'll see what i am working with for light 10:21am Greg from ZONE 5:Back to business, Bob! 10:22am Linda Lee:so - deep soul meditation on life & death becomes pop meditation on soured romance! wow. :-D 10:22am Linda Lee:rocket to fame right there :-D 10:23am exile-on-hicks-st:@Lix Life Last.fm has changed a bit - they used to stream music, but now stream via Spotify. It seems that it’s a layer for people who are into ‘data’ about their mainstream music-listening habits. I don’t get the sense that the typical ‘FMU’er is the target demographic. 10:26am exile-on-hicks-st:E.g- they have a “music discovery” tool that lets you dial two circles of a venn diagram the dials cycle thru common genres and periods of time. If you put something like ‘1940’s’ and ‘electronic’ together there are zero results and you’re told you are ahead of your time. 10:28am Henry in Hopatcong:Great tunes! 10:30am WilliamfromDumont:Revolution. Soundtrack great. Movie not so much. 10:32am Lixiviated Life:@ exile-on-hicks-st:
Thanks for the help.
It doesn't seem like it's something I'd want to sign up for.
You just saved me a lot of frustration.
10:32am Linda Lee:you've done it Bob! i was outside the door bringing in firewood & started looking around for the peepers. confused :-D 10:34am Lixiviated Life:got to sign off.
get into the sunshine before its gone.
10:47am WilliamfromDumont:Sad to hear about Buell. There was a fantastic recording with Taylor and Archie Shepp from the early sixties. Can't remember the name. 10:49am thriftstoreleather:This Cecil Taylor is great! 10:58am Linda Lee:rarely consider & feel thankful for my hearing ~ but Cecil Taylor helps me remember! 11:01am Linda Lee:2 disc a labelled that way are for record stacking on the turntable spindle. stack two, let 2 drop, flip the stack & it plays in order
