• National Lowered Standards Day (August 4)

    30 apr 2010, 04:14 av Conservationist



    We propose a Federal holiday to celebrate working in a lowest common denominator state. It's about time. We've been killing productivity, celebrating the half-done, norming to a lowest common denominator, and ignoring the world around us for years. It's just time to make it official.

    National Lowered Standards Day (August 4)
  • Please reverse these changes.

    18 apr 2010, 19:22 av HealeyIsland

    Like many, if not all, members of Lastfm, I am very disappointed with the changes made to listening arrangements on the site. The quality of our experience is severely diminished. The site is now a million miles away from the LastFM I joined in 2006: a site that was a welcoming home to a vibrant community of independent musicians from across the world. At one time this was a great place to discover new music. Remember when you could listen to whole albums without having to change pages or fuss about clicking the next play button? That was taken away quite some time ago. Now the ability to listen to whole tracks has been taken away, replaced instead with 30 second previews.

    Yes, the radio stations are great, but this was only ever a small part of what the site once offered. Without being able to choose and listen to full tracks on demand LastFM is something of a hollow experience.

    So come on LastFM - please give us back the wonderful site we used to know.

  • Every curse........finally LOVE !!! +++ :-)

    11 apr 2010, 20:34 av roots-roy

    Every curse you throw at me is changed into a blessing through my friend Sarayu (The Holy Spirit) :-)

    so be careful:-) if you don't want to be blessed :-)

    i take the shield of faith according eph.6 and the full armor of my Jah-Daddy Papa-God.... so beware, it is not me you are fighting with, it is The God of Holy LOVE who is INVINCIBLE !!!

    2000 years ago Jesus Christ gave His sinless Life for me and you, even if some people like (for example) Patti Smith say something else. Jesus DIED on that cross for ALL sins of ALL people at ALL times: past, present + future. The sacrifice of Jesus Christ is timeless and eternally valid. It is the sacrifice of Pure LOVE in Truth !!! and this deed and work of Father, Son + Holy Spirit 2000 years ago was crowned by The Glorious Resurrection of Jesus, which we celebrated some time ago.

    Come into this RELATIONship based on LOVE, Respect and Reconciliation with Trinity-God, which has NOTHING to do with established, institutionalized, organized Church-RELIGION !!!

    Religion or Faith or God or Christianity or The Christians are not your enemy. You yourself and satan are The Enemy. Don't listen anylonger
    to that loser-devil, who had his chance to turn back to God, but missed it forever. “sympathy for the devil” as the rolling stones sang, is stupid and out of place. Satan and his demons had their chance for a long long time, they missed it, so if you join with them you will miss your only chance too..... DON'T identify with former lucifer who has a very very bad and sad future. God is Holy LOVE and The Judge of Perfect Justice. He never did any mistake. Everything He is doing has a meaning and sense, because He knows the end from the beginning. The creator of time is not under the law of time like EVERY being, including angels, demons and satan. GOD is the only eternal being and only in His Presence you can experience Eternal LOVE.

    WE ARE ALL His precious Children, WE ARE ALL wanted, accepted, loved. So there is no reason to rebel against Him, the ONE + ONLY Trinity-GOD !!!

    LOVE is and always will be the strongest power in universe. So turn to LOVE, breath LOVE, drink LOVE, eat LOVE, see LOVE, feel LOVE, look at Jesus Christ, who is God and the perfect human being in One Person, the second person of Trinity. It is all about Jesus Christ; He is the center of everything and first of all the Revelation of Papas Heart, which beats for you personally and individually !!! you are His daughter, His son, and He cares for you. It doesn't matter what you did in the past, He waits for you with open arms, HE REALLY REALLY LOVES YOU !!!

    it doesn't matter, whether you call yourself and atheist, agnostic, pagan,
    (anti)christian, hindu, muslim, philosopher or whatsoever, GOD LOVES YOU, Jesus died for you, and The Holy Spirit is behind you to convert you into a loving peaceful happy person, a brandnew creation....

    I am nothing, I am only a simple man from germany, I am a human being like you and the other 6 billion human beings. But at the same time I can call myself a child of The Most High, a son of God through The Son Of God: Jesus Christ.

    This is the mystery: we are nothing, we are dust, we are living 20 or 50 or 80 years, which is NOTHING compared to Eternity... but we are God's Children, who have the chance to live with Him eternally, because He became FLESH like us, He became Human like us, He came down and met us face to face and still this wonderful movement is going on. And this wonderfull movement has NOTHING to do with any religious crime, with any spiritual or sexual abuse, with any church-ideology. JESUS CHRIST is the personalized, manifestated and incarnated LOVE of God.
    And this LOVE has nothing to do with any evil, it is as pure and clean and holy as written described in the Holy Bible 1.Cor.13:

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
    5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
    6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
    7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
    8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.
    9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
    10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.
    11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.
    12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
    13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (NIV)

    Instead of the word LOVE you can put the word JESUS and you know how JESUS is: Jesus is patient, Jesus is kind. Jesus does not envy or boast..... Jesus is perfect, the perfect lover of my and your soul.....

    So forget about the “childish ways” of the world with pride and jealousy, with rebellion and anger, with hate and crime, with blasphemy and selfishness, forget about these childish, sinful, destructive ways. Don't be childish, but be childlike by becoming a child of God, a follower of Jesus Christ. Wise people are childlike, many intelligent and clever people are childish.... can you see the difference ???

    Jesus said, that we must become childlike to enter into heaven, but most people are still very childish, fighting wars, denying the existence of God and the whole invisible world. And this heaven-way, this RELATIONship with Trinity-God does NOT begin when you are dead, it starts just when you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior into you Life + Heart.

    In my life this conversion started with that simple prayer

    “Lord be merciful to me – a lost sinner!
    Forgive me Lord! My only hope is placed in Jesus Christ who died for me. Possess my heart, and reign there supreme. Lead me by your Holy Spirit that I may know your will in all things. My Lord! My Savior! My God!”

    which I signed in 1981. 5 years later I had my born-again-experience and became a child of God, was baptized the same year.

    Your way with God will be entirely different, but Jesus is the same for you, the one who LOVES you and accepts your decision to follow Him. He knows, that you will do mistakes, will sometimes be angry and difficult and nebver perfect till the end. But He LOVES you and will always be with you till the end. His Grace is ALWAYS there for you. His Blood cleans you every day, every hour, every minute if necessary. His Grace is not cheap, it is not the “free licence” to sin and harm people. His Grace is Holy as His LOVE is Holy....

    Holy is God, Holy is Life, Holy are The Children of God, Holy are The Angels, Holy is The Trinity. Holy is The Universe and The Nature, CREATED BY GOD-ALMIGHTY !!! In the beginning our Holy Papa created Holy Heaven and Holy Earth, Holy visible and Holy invisible world (GENESIS).
    What happened ??? For some reason which we will finally and fully only will get to know in eternity, one angel named lucifer was no longer satisfied with God and His Kingdom and wanted his own kingdom. The rest you know. You can read it in the newspaper, see it in the TV, EVERYDAY !

    It is the risk of FREEDOM which God took... LOVE ALWAYS GRANTS FREEDOM !!! God took this risk, so you can blame Him for all the mess on earth, it's sooo easy.... but the decision to blame God means that you blame Him for The LOVE which includes Freedom. How to blame somebody for LOVE ???

    YOU have the choice, YOU have the option, YOU have the Freedom to decide, to which side you want to belong !!! and because you are a FREE being, LOVED BY YOUR PAPA-GOD, your Papa will accept your choice with all tzhe consequences for Him and you. He is losing a child and you are going to live without Him in eternity. It is YOUR Choice and your responsibility. YOU ARE WHAT YOU DECIDE TO BE TODAY AND IN ETERNITY !!!

    God is Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit or Papa, Jesus and Sarayu as named in THE SHACK:-)

    Human beings are a Trinity too: Spirit, Soul and Body.

    And there is the “Trinity” of LOVE, Freedom and Responsibility, which all belong together somehow. You can't have one of them without the others. No Love without Freedom, no Freedom without Responsibility, no good and caring Responsibility without LOVE.....

    God is LOVE and He wants us to voluntarily chose Him. He likes and loves us and want to be with His precious Kids, it's that easy....

    so Chose LIFE, chose LOVE, chose Feedom, chose Joy and Happiness, chose Jesus Christ, who is your eternal rescuer and Life-Saver !!!

    it can start NOW, begin today and will last FOREVER in Eternity.

    Jesus is LOVE !!!

  • The Genre Exploration Project

    7 maj 2010, 07:20 av Ozzloaf

    I've decided to set out on a new venture, which is to listen to the highest rated album of EVERY sub-genre on RateYourMusic. This will take forever, surely, but I believe it will be worth it. When I look at it, I've actually experienced so very little of the musical realm, and I want to experience essentially every type of music there is. I will not be skipping any sub-genres, unless I don't believe that it is really a musical thing, such as (non-musical) comedy albums, or various spoken word albums, or if I've already listened to the highest rated album from the genre. If I truly hate something, then I'm not going to force myself to listen to it, but the criteria is that I have to listen to 25 min of each album before turning it off.

    http://rateyourmusic.com/rgenre/

    I'll post about my experiences on my blog: http://voidofemptinessmusic.blogspot.com/

    If anyone wants to join me in this experience, go ahead.
  • MY TAKE ON THE WHOLE APRIL 12th MESS--

    4 maj 2010, 00:13 av johnTMcNeill

    I'll be glad to clear up any confusion- surprised there is any- but here goes....

    From day one (April 12, 2010) I have never agreed that the changes were an improvement in any way - at least not to me. I did not care one way or another about the appearance, charts, etc. that some people referred to. I certainly would not oppose ANYthing someone else wanted- as long as it did not interfere with what I already had and used.

    I loved the full-track on-demand privilege and used it constantly to screen music and put it in a playlist- or send it to someone-. Or listen to it immediately when they sent ME something- and respond back with a chuckle, or whatever.

    I often put the 30 sec. recommendations I received into an on-going playlist- so that I could someday hear the dang thing. If I happened to be in front of the computer when it came up and had the time I would place it THEN into a more appropriate playlist- "guitar" or whatever.

    I set out to build playlists the way I had been doing for years- taking the best of what I had and putting it into my own personal playlists.

    Once I "discovered" a new artist (new to me) I enjoyed going back to his page and listening to more. It is not at all unusual for me to LOVE one song by an artist and strongly DISLIKE another. That's what always frustrated me about albums.

    I have been making my own cassettes since the 80's. Actually my first compilation was a 4 track for my car in the late sixties. (some of the songs were off of 45s--) Then I had 8 tracks- then cassettes. I most often played the cassettes simply because I had 2 little boys running around and I did not want to have to "kill" them for scratching my albums by bumping into the table-------I would buy an album, record what I liked, then put it up out of their reach- for the next 20 years. I kid you not.

    When cds came out I found them to be much more durable and harder to scratch- so I began my cd collection.

    I bought HUNDREDS of "used" cds from a place called CD Warehouse- usually for around $5 - a bargain-- and the thing that I really liked was that I could ALWAYS hear the cd first- they had little "boomboxes" around the place with headphones. If a cd had several songs I liked, I would usually buy it. If it was just one song I didn't.

    And just for the record- I have NEVER downloaded music illegally even though several people have told me how to. I just don't feel it is the right thing to do- the artist deserves something in exchange for his creation. My shouts are simply my way of saying thank you to the kind artists who have made their music available to me for free.

    I spent many a Saturday afternoon going through the bargain bins- reading the covers- and often "discovered" some of my favorites (now) for 99 cents! Never heard of them- but I would read that "he was the guitarist for Journey for 12 years"- and I would think "can't be TOO bad" and I would give it a listen. Be dang--- Neal Schon-- one of my favorites now- but as a solo artist he was an unknown to me. I had no idea who he was- neither did anyone else- that's why it was 99 cents.

    You ever hear of Craig Chaquico? He was the guitarist for Jefferson Starship- and is now another one of my favorites. I have ALL of his cds. I even bought a couple of them NEW- which is very unusual for me- but I like him that much. Incredible guitarist. Incredible.

    This was my strategy for YEARS- and I still remember the day I came home with about 30 cds and my wife almost killed me- until I told her it cost a total of $12--- twelve dollars- they had quite a sale that day.......I got a bunch of "nobodies" who I still LOVE to listen to. Incredible artists who had for whatever reason just not been "discovered" by the public- but I found 'em!

    When I began to realize that many of my favorites were on the Higher Octave or Narada label, I started just looking for anything on those labels. BINGO-- a BUNCH of excellent artists I had never heard of but found that I LOVED!

    Then one day I learned that Higher Octave went out of business- bummer--- I looked them up on the internet and they said to look for some of their old stuff on Lastfm- never heard of it- but what the heck- I looked into it- saw all of the ads and thought - crap- and then learned about the benefits of subscribing for only $3 per month.

    Frankly- I was suspicious- I don't ever give ANYbody my credit or debit card without knowing who I am dealing with. Period. Screw the $3- I didn't want to give them my debit card number. Then I learned about PayPal-- all this in the same or a few days after first discovering Lastfm- which I lo0ved- except for those $#@! ads.

    So I did the PayPal thing- they screwed it up twice- I had to pay double, but still thought it was a bargain.

    I had a BALL! Listening to new artists I had never heard of (just like I always did) PLUS dang near everything I HAD heard of. And I began the playlists- and people started dropping by - usually because of my funny shouts- and I made some friends and they turned me on to MORE good stuff I never heard of.

    I WAS IN HEAVEN! $3 a month- and I have access to all this incredible music and all these people from all over the world and I never even have to leave the house.

    I don't tell you this to "manipulate" you - it is just the plain cold fact of life for ME. This music and sharing thing on Lastfm is ALL I do. Take away any part of it and I have even less- which sure does not make me happy! You live with your reality- I have mine. I have said time and time again -- I WILL PAY MORE- BUT I WILL NOT ACCEPT LESS. Not without a fight....

    So here I sit- day after day- listening, writing, talking to people, actually helping a bunch of folks- that's another story- but it is something that helps me to feel I have value- to somebody. And I know that I do. I have friends from all over the world- in all the different time zones- there is ALWAYS SOMEbody up listening to music- SOMEWHERE- and they often want to talk. You wouldn't BELIEVE the stories I hear- but I do- because I really know the people behind them.

    And then --BAM-- April 12, 2010 --the%$#@! jerks at Last fm pull the plug on "on-demand full track streaming" . Heck - I didn't even know that is what it was called. I just knew that for months I had been looking SOOOO forward to the day when those 30 second things went away and everything would be full listening.

    That's what the little screen would say when I ran over the 3 play limit on some songs- never knew when that was going to happen. MANY songs were played many many more than 3- which was somewhat confusing- but - who's complaining? Lastfm alluded to a beta test which would most likely result in us having the opportunity to have ALL the tracks full-play on-demand (soon)...

    I RARELY ever bothered with the 30 second thing- there were always plenty of full tracks to choose from. I only put some of the 30 second ones in my playlists when I discovered that they would play in full. In fact some of the "blank" songs even played- so I just stuck everything I like in there if it seemed reasonable- especially when it was an artist I usually liked. Then I just deleted a song I DIDN"T like.

    That's why I have a zillion loved tracks- That was the easiest way to quickly recognize that I had heard that song and stuck it somewhere. Might not have really LOVED it- but it was worthy of a playlist.

    So that is why I was disappointed when they made the changes- threw a real monkey wrench into my life. And I fired off a couple of letters- and much to my surprise- they seemed not to give a rat's ass that I was upset- or anyone else either- they just said "go somewhere else"..

    This was most unusual to me----- I never -ever- got that response-- never. So I began to follow the thread on the Forum - and the rest is history -- all the ugliness and bulls### that was unnecessary from the very beginning. BLEW MY MIND!

    Why the heck would anyone else (besides Lastfm) care if I was alive or dead- happy or upset- or did or did not get what I wanted. Just didn't make any sense. Still doesn't.

    And I am still disappointed in the entire process- disappointed that little progress has really been made- (other than Lastfm stating that the indies would return around the third week of May-- YAY!) and that the same dang people are still telling me, you, and everyone else- --

    that "the chocolate covered turd" in my lunchbox is a Snickers bar.

    It doesn't pass the sniff test- and I'm not buying it.

    I am putting up with it temporarily - and have tried (believe it or not) to calm things by offering my own "temporary work-around."

    But I have lost all respect for Lastfm and don't see how I can ever feel the same way I did before. Who cares? Even I don't..... I just want them to give me back my dang music- the way I want it- when I want it- where I want it--- just like they originally promised me.

    So here we are.

    No conflict from me. No siree. I'm pissed off and full of vinegar and want to let them know that neither I nor many others will EVER be fully satisfied until things return to the way they were before the April 12 debacle..................

    Hope that clears things up a bit- if not feel free to holler at me.

    I get a lot of that these days....

    You can bet that on June 1st and 2nd I will be joining in the "Silence is Golden" (strike) brigade- not a peep from me on the Lastfm scrobbler. The CBS/Lostfm folks seem to be stone deaf when it comes to hearing the complaints of their community members.

    We obviously cannot rely on their social conscience to guide them.

    Maybe the SILENCE will wake them up...

    aus DIE HÜTTE von william paul young:

    Papa-Gott sagt: "Ich bin nicht so, wie du glaubst, Mackenzie. Ich brauche die Menschen nicht für ihre Sünden zu bestrafen. Die Sünde trägt ihre eigene Strafe in sich, sie verzehrt dich von innen heraus. Es ist nicht meine Absicht, jene zu bestrafen, die sündigen. Vielmehr ist es meine Freude, die Sünde zu heilen." S.136

    Bedeutet frei zu sein, daß es dir erlaubt ist zu tun, was immer du willst? Oder wir können über all die einschränkenden Einfüsse sprechen, die aktiv gegen deine Freiheit arbeiten. Das genetische Erbe deiner Familie, deine spezifische DNA, deine metabolische Einzigartigkeit, die Quantenphänomene, die auf subatomarer Ebene ablaufen, wo nur ich der immer gegenwärtige Beobachter bin. Oder die Krankheit deiner Seele, die dich behindert und bindet, oder die gesellschaftlichen Einflüsse, denen du ausgesetzt bist, oder die Gewohnheiten, durch die synaptische Verbindungen und Pfade in deinem Gehirn erzeugt worden sind. Und dann sind da noch die Werbung, Propaganda und Paradigmen. Angesichts all dieser begrenzenden Faktoren..... was ist da wirkliche Freiheit ? ............. Freiheit ist ein Prozeß, der stufenweise verläuft.......... Die Wahrheit befreit euch, und die Wahrheit hat einen Namen..... Seite 108

    Seite 108:
    Mackenzie, die Wahrheit befreit euch, und die Wahrheit hat einen Namen. Er ist gerade drüben in der Werkstatt und tischlert. ALLES DREHT SICH UM IHN. Und die Freiheit ist ein Prozeß, der stattfindet, wenn du dich auf eine Beziehung zu Jesus einläßt. Dann klären sich all die Probleme und Konflikte, die in dir brodeln.
    Seite 291:
    Die meisten von uns haben ihre eigenen Leiden, zerbrochenen Träume und verletzten Herzen. Wir alle haben mit unseren einzigartigen Verlusten zu kämpfen, unserer eigenen „Hütte“. Ich bete dafür, daß sie dort die gleiche Gnade finden wie ich und daß die Gegenwart von Papa, Jesus und Sarayu Ihre innere Leere füllt mit unbeschreiblicher Freude und Herrlichkeit.
    Seite 301:
    Jeden Tag hören wir Geschichten, wie dieses Buch das Leben der Menschen auf tiefgreifende Weise verändert und Türen für Gespräche geöffnet hat, die zuvor peinlich oder unmöglich gewesen wären. Die Heilung, die dadurch entsteht, kann nur das Werk von Jemandem sein, der größer ist als wir alle - er sei gerühmt und gepriesen.


    It is the human paradigm; it is like water to the fish, so prevalent that it goes unseen and unquestioned. it is the matrix; a diabolical scheme in which you are hopelessly trapped even while completely unaware of its existence..... As the crowning glory of Creation, you were made in our image, unencumbered by structure and free simply BE in relationship with me and one another.
    William Paul Young THE SHACK page 124

    Es ist das menschliche Paradigma; es ist wie das Wasser für den Fisch, so allgegenwärtig, daß ihr es gar nicht mehr bemerkt oder infrage stellt. Es ist die Matrix - ein diabolisches System, in dem ihr hoffnungslos gefangen seid, ohne euch seiner Existenz überhaupt bewußt zu sein. .... Ihr wurdet als glorreiche Krone der Schöpfung nach unserem Ebenbild erschaffen, frei von allen Systemen und Strukturen, frei, einfach nur zu SEIN, in Beziehung zu mir und untereinander.
    William Paul Young DIE HÜTTE Seite 141

    Forgiveness is first for you, the forgiver, to release you from something that will eat you alive; that will destroy your joy and your ability to love fully and openly.
    William Paul Young THE SHACK page 225

    Vergebung ist in erster Linie heilend für den, der vergibt. Denn du befreist dich von etwas, das dich sonst bei lebendigem Leib auffressen wird, das deine Freude zerstört und dich daran hindert, wirklich bedingungslos zu lieben.
    William Paul Young DIE HÜTTE Seite 260

    Heidnische Philosophen wie Aristotoles schlossen aus Vernunftgründen auf die Existenz Gottes und sprachen von ihm in vagen, unpersönlichen Ausdrücken: "der unbewegte Beweger, die nicht verursachte Ursache." Die jüdischen Propheten päsentierten den Gott Abrahams, Isaaks und Jakobs in einem wärmeren, mitfühlenderen Ton. Doch Jesus offenbarte einer erstaunten jüdischen Gesellschaft, daß Gott wahrhaftig Vater ist.
    Brennan Manning "die unbändige liebe gottes" Seite 35

    religion, politics and economics.... the man-created trinity of terrors that ravages the earth and deceives those that I care about. What mental turmoil and anxiety does any human face that is not related to one of those three?
    ....... Put simply, these terrors are tools that many use to prop up their illusions of security and control. People are afraid of uncertainty, afraid of the future. These institutions, these structures and ideologies are all a vain effort to create some sense of certainty and security where there isn't any. It's all false! Systems cannot provide your security, only I can. (Jesus)
    William Paul Young THE SHACK page 179/180

    Religion, Politik und Ökonomie.... die von den Menschen selbst erschaffene Dreifaltigkeit des Schreckens, von der die Erde verwüstet wird und jene getäuscht werden, die mir am Herzen liegen. Welcher geistigen Verwirrung und Angst muß sich ein Mensch aussetzen, der mit diesen dreien nichts zu tun haben will?....... Einfach ausgedrückt, diese Schrecken sind Werkzeuge, die viele Menschen benutzen, um ihre Illusion von Sicherheit und Kontrolle aufrechtzuerhalten. Die Leute fürchten sich vor Unsicherheit, vor der Zukunft. Diese Institutionen, diese Strukturen und Ideologien sind allesamt vergebliche Anstrengungen, ein Gefühl der Sicherheit zu erzeugen, wo es in Wahrheit keine Sicherheit gibt. das ist alles falsch! (religiöse) Systeme können keine Sicherheit schaffen, nur ich kann das. (JESUS) (Klammern von Günther)

    If you've ever wondered why we keep nibbling away at the edges of environmentalism, but never solve any problems, this book explains it all: we're looking in the wrong places. Instead of thinking about recycling and green cars, we should be thinking about preserving species from extinction, extending our woodland, and using our muscles instead of machines to keep the air clearer. This is a fascinating, easy to read and FUNNY book!
