soo... what music have you been listening to this year ?


I wouldn't bother trying to summarize it, because I don't collect such data as I have no interest in datamining my own listening habits. Why? Because I'm not trying to find emerging trends and identify patterns, and thus make recommendations for other things I might spend money on[*].

[*] For those selling content, that would be selling me CDs or (god forbid) MP3 or FLAC files. For streamers (selling subscriptions to content), that would be to try to keep me on as long as possible as a paying, captive audience. To which I say, I'll make my own spending decisions without anyone's help, thank you very much.

In other words - that's nobody's business, especially those who have a vested interest in making money based on what they know think I like.

Yes, I kinda have issues with those trying to sell me stuff, especially when it's not solicited. I'm sick to death of ads. I don't like to be analyzed, processed, catalogued, put in a box and being part of anyone's demographics.

Nothing against your question -- I'm just making a point that probably goes faaaar beyond your intent. I'm really not that much of a jackass (despite all appearances). Smile | :)
