The MetaFilter Music Challenge is back, (*cue triumphant fanfare, followed by sound of jubilant, cheering throng*) and suggestions for the monthly Challenge themes are open to all MeFiers. This means YOU! You are hereby encouraged, month by month, to offer suggestions, and if yours is chosen, not only will your name go up in lights at the Music page, but you'll also be the spark that ignites the creative genius of some MeFi Musician. A chance at a little slice of immortality! [more inside]
Would it be possible to have the pop-out player in Metafilter Music play randomly? [more inside]
ANNOUNCING: The reinstatement of the MetaFilter Music Challenge! (*cue applause*) REQUESTING: Your ideas on Challenge categories and structure. [more inside]
Is there interest in the return of the MeFi Music Challenge? [more inside]
MetaFilter Music request: would it be difficult to implement a top 5 or 10 all time of MeFites with the most uploaded tracks, as well as most playlisted or played selections? [more inside]
Being vain, of course, I noticed this morning that someone favorited my song. The details show two favorites, though, one of which is from 2006. Which I am fairly certain is not the case, unless somebody's got a sweet time machine. [more inside]
Admit it, MetaFilter really needs a Glee Club. San Francisco singers and would-be singers, lend your voices to make this dream a reality! [more inside]
I've recently made a video for a song which I'd previously posted on mefimusic. The video includes a remastered version of the original song plus a reprise. Would it be kosher to post this to mefimusic, using the reprise as the uploaded mp3? [more inside]
MuFi: Can we get a list of songs sorted by play count? Reference
Can't get the mefi music player to work, even though I just reinstalled flash (it's flash-based, right?). It works on my laptop though, not sure why. [more inside]
is there a way to search for every MeFiter who has posted to Music, but from a particular city? Seems like if the search terms are not in the post or tagged by the poster, the MeFi search engine doesn't include the user info... [more inside]
MeFi Music Challenge - wha' happened? [more inside]
Cambridge Meetup reminder filter: The inimitable frenetic, known to most rubes as Brad Sucks, will be performing at Middle East in Cambridge, MA next Tuesday (2/12). [more inside]
Could there be a place within Mefi Music for people to post tabs? [more inside]
I can only listen to the first few seconds of any song on MeFi music. I hit play, the first 2-3% of the song loads, and then the music cuts out. This seems to be a problem on my end, and I'm hoping someone has suggestions. [more inside]
Some new stuff at Music: play counts, flash player update, and pop-outs! [more inside]
For MusicFi: I never have any idea if anyone listens to the songs I've put up, because no one ever comments or gives feedback. Granted, this might be because my songs
suck could be better, but it doesn't seem like there's a lot of feedback even for the obviously skilled artists. [more inside]
I am looking for a fellow MeFite who is both a Daft Punk fan and proficient with (preferably) Fruity Loops and/or Reason. I'm working on a top secret project that I'd like to collaborate with someone on. Who will bite?
How about adding a play count to songs in the black? [more inside]
MuFeature request: simplifying mp3 playlist/XML downloading. Tips? [more inside]
The MeFi Music iTunes feed seems to be broken. [more inside]
Lots of people seemed interested in my Christmas music question. With your help, I've finished the job. Thanks so much everyone!
Has anybody considered developing a MeFi Music Gadget (basically, an iGoogle gadget featuring an mp3 jukebox that plays the most recent or most favorited MeFi music posts on a subscriber's iGoogle homepage)? [more inside]
In response to this thread: A little GreaseMonkey script to pop-out all the flash players (that use playlists) into new tabs/windows. Enjoy!
Karlos the Jackal made an excellent suggestion near the end of an earlier thread, but I don't know whether any of the admins ever saw it. Is a permanent list of available MeFi musical collaborators a possibility?
MusicFilter: a possible solution for the flash player problems at MetaFilter Music. [more inside]
How afraid should we be of publicizing that Metafilter Music has some great covers? [more inside]
MusicFilter: interviewing the MefiMusicians. [more inside]
Podcast feeds from music playlists seem not to be working.. at least it isn't on this one. [more inside]
MetaFilter Music: The Podcast [more inside]
This is too weak for the blue (and many will say for the grey as well), and I'm too close to him for it not to be a "self-link," but I thought that some MeMu users may be interested in Sufjan Stevens' Xmas Song Swap. [more inside]
Reminder: the deadline for the Metafilter Music Collaboration is this Friday. So if you want to contribute, now is the time. [more inside]
It's November 4th. Next MeFi Music Challenge(s) please! [more inside]
Let's have a massive Metafilter Music collaboration. [more inside]
First MeFi Music Challenge? 27 eager participants got their feet wet. Second Challenge? 12 serpentine submissions. Third? 9 MeFiers took it to the bridge. Fourth and most recent? 7 made the suprhuman effort. This is not a promising trend... [more inside]
Last.fm pony please: I'd like to embed the "Recently Listened" (or similar) chart into my profile, much like the flickr photo scroll. (Alternately, if someone knows how to do that now, I'd appreciate it). [more inside]
Allow me to nerd out briefly on behalf of one of our own. Say, Mr. William "I invented cyberspace" Gibson, what were you listening to while writing your new bestseller Spook Country? Why, I was listening to Brad Sucks, nanojath! (see Sept. 1 entry) [more inside]
Can't seem to find this month's music challenge topic. Is there one?
Hey, I see there's suddenly a new font in use for song titles (and linking directly to threads!) at MeFi Music. Looks good to me: the page is more unified. Might I be so bold as to make a further suggestion? Make the song titles a little smaller. I don't think they need to be so big, really, and it'd make more space, so more MeFier's songs could bask a little longer in those bright MeFiMu front page stage lights. Whaddaya think?
Uploading songs to mufi is maybe broken? Or maybe it is just me?
Those of you putzing around on MeMu know I am heavily into folksongs and folk singing. This Thursday at 7:30 pm I am hosting a song session at Rasputin's in Ottawa (696 Bronson, for those of you who live here). The focus will be strongly towards accapella song, whether in groups or solo, and there will (hopefully) be singing from as many different musical traditions as we can manage. Since I'm new here, I'd love the opportunity to meet some local Mefites; I thought this would be a fantastic excuse for a meetup. No singing is required, I'll only ask that you don't talk when someone is singing, out of respect for the singer. So, are there any Mefites in Ottawa interested in coming down to Rasputin's on Thursday? I'd love to meet you!
So, the call went out, and the call was answered: we got us some fine and snakey new songs around MeFi Town. 'Bout half as many as poured in for the previous water theme, but I reckon that's to be expected, sophomore slump and all. Just wondering, now that we're two days past the serpentine deadline, what's the next MeFi Music Challenge, admins?
I want to use a song from Music.Mefi, but the creator (Vicarious) doesn't have an e-mail!!! Is there any way to contact said creator, or maybe the musicians could add a creative commons tag so others could use their work, and attribute appropriately? I wanted to use the song in a video that I'm making.
I seem to remember an AskMe post regarding the bell-like, bubble-ish synth noises that Radiohead (and others) coax from their machinery, and how to replicate them, but i cant find the post using my limited google/AskMe-fu. Anyone remember this and can point me in the general direction?
I once found (and bookmarked) this page of all of chococat's music. I like it because it has the little flash player, so I can listen to all of his tunes. How do I get to the same kind of page for other MeFi Musicians? I've tried looking on members' profile pages, but the link to all of their songs goes to the music parts of their Activity pages. Thanks.
