I’ve been getting some artists that I like into my Last.FM profile. Looking at the details for Theo Parrish’s First Floor album it had some similiar artists such as Queen, Limp Bizkit, Wu Tang Clan and Sonic Youth. Riiight…

For those of you unfamiliar with Last.FM is a personal radio station that “builds up a personal profile of your music taste, consisting of tracks you added to your profile and tracks you listened to on” It also ties in nicely with Audioscrobbler which is developed by the same people. Audioscrobbler is “a computer system that builds up a detailed profile of your musical taste. After installing an Audioscrobbler Plugin, your computer sends the name of every song you play to the Audioscrobbler Server.”

Their both worth checking out and its fun to see what your friends have been listening to.

Audioscrobbler also offers RSS feeds of what you’ve been listening to so you can extract that data and use it like I have in the side bar of this blog in the “10 recently played songs” section.
