End of another week, let's talk about something else that is not related to politics. Let's talk about music. What are you listening to? How do you listen? On your phone on the bus? In the car on your way to work? At home with some high-end audio equipment? Are you strictly listening digital? Analog? Do you stream your music? Do you only listen to records? Are you a collector? Is there a certain genre you hate or avoid? Do you pirate your music or pay for it legally? Is there a single or an album that you've been listening to on repeat? Is there something you're looking forward to being released later this year? Let's turn the volume up. Stay safe and be kind to each other.
Mefi Music appearing automatically and streaming from Hype Machine -- what's the deal? [more inside]
Is it considered kosher to make a post on the blue that relies heavily on Grooveshark songs? Or is that as much a no-no as posts that provide links to torrents and unauthorized downloads? Grooveshark only streams songs, rather than providing people with downloads, so does that make it as OK as YouTube? [more inside]
Just wondering if there's been any change to the format of the streaming versions of the songs uploaded to Music. Lately they seem extra-specially compressed sounding to me, so I was wondering if it's something on my end. Not bitchin', just wonderin'.
Music: Feature or Bug? When I try streaming a song from the front page, as soon as I scroll past it or flip to a different browser tab, it stops playing. If I load the song's individual page and stream it from there, it contines to play until I close it (even as I type this MeTa post in another tab, for example).
