Usually I only make journal entries for palindromic scobbles. I'm not sure when or why I decided this.
I suppose it just seemed different from the majority of people who marked regular significan
t scrobbles e.g.) 500, 1000, 10,000 etc. etc and let's face it. Who doesn't like to be different? OK, I know a lot of you reading this are probably saying "Me" out loud but anyway, indulge me for a minute or two longer, I'm almost done.
The problem with palindromic scrobble journal entry writing is it's difficult to make a generalised statement on music listening. This is why I made a note of when I scrobbled my 79,000th track and made a mental note to remember to note when I scrobbled my 80,000th track. That was early on in the wee small hours of yesterday.
On 27 January I scrobbled Johnny Cash
's cover of theNine Inch Nails
Not a bad 80k milestone if you ask me.
It also allows me easily work out that between 31 December and 27 January I scrobbled 1,000 tracks. That's roughly 37 tracks a day.
I wonder how long it would have taken to scrobble that number if I could have included music listened to via the hi-fi and let's not get started with the hours spent tuned into the radio.
