was simply incredible. He was elegant, funny, self-deprecating in a humorous fashion, sincere, and very interactive with the audience.
As for the music itself, he started off the set with 3 new songs from his upcoming album (a total of four for the set), and they were heavy and brilliant. I'm rather excited to hear the new album when it hits in June (I just downloaded the new single for I Spit Roses, from iTunes, which includes the b-side The Prince & Old Lady Shade - only a couple of dollars and well worth it.) He included 2 Bauhaus songs and a cover of Nine Inch Nails song Hurt. From his own library, he pulled heavily from his seminal album, 1990's Deep as well as Cascade (1995).
He was very intense and used his body to express himself while performing; sometimes pointing a finger off into the distance, or his entire body, face to the ground. He danced around quite a bit, consistently interacting with other band members and the audience. For a few songs, he would spin round in a manner that much reminded me of Dave Gahan live. He moon-walked in place for the entire length of another song, He had me dizzy at times, spellbound - and many others, laughing the deepest laughs I've felt in a long times
As he was singing and prancing around on stage, he came round to my side of the audience and was shaking hands/holding hands with various audience members. I raised my hand up to him, as I watched him singing, and he looked at me and gave me the most genuine smile. He then reached down and gave my beard a brief knuckle rub (which, for me, was obviously the coolest thing ever) as he made his way back to the stage to continue the performance.
In the end, he came up on stage with the entire band, arms around each other, bidding adieu. He looked me straight in the eye and mouthed the words "Thank you", with a smile on his face, as well as many others. One of the best concerts, ever!

26 feb 2010, 17:50 av JaX3RiRJust got around to finishing this little bit of code, which I find very useful. To skip the yap-yap and see the code, scroll to the end of the journal.
This code will, basically, show if the currently playing track has been scrobbled to Last.fm or not, and if not, then how many seconds is left until the scrobble. It is not related to the Last.fm service at all however, so any errors or such will not be notified of. Does not need any other plugins to work, either.
Not playing = Play to start Last.fm scrobble
Track shorter than 30 seconds / internet stream = Unable to scrobble current track
49% - 51% played = Scrobbling...
Under 50% played = Last.fm scrobble in X seconds
Over 50% played = Scrobbled to Last.fm
Works completely without *any* foobar plugins at all, it doesn't even matter if you use foo_audioscrobbler or the official Last.fm scrobbler.
Play to start Last.fm scrobble:
Last.fm scrobble in X seconds:
Scrobbled to Last.fm:
Unable to scrobble current track (shorter than 30 seconds):
Unable to scrobble current track (internet stream):
$if(%isplaying%,$ifgreater(30,%length_seconds%,'Unable to scrobble current track',
$ifgreater(%playback_time_seconds%,360,'Scrobbled to Last.fm','Last.fm scrobble in '
$div(%length_seconds%,2),'Scrobbled to Last.fm','Last.fm scrobble in '
$div(%length_seconds%,2)),-1) 'seconds')))),'Play to start Last.fm scrobble')
Put it where you like in foobar -- I recommend the great plugin Columns UI for more panels and options!
Should you have any questions, suggestions, feedback, bug notifications or such information, feel free to comment on this journal or on my profile - every shout is appreciated! :)

5 nov 2008, 20:17 av jellyfrog23Finding new artists to get excited about this week --
The Dog Days
Both indie/folk rock and lovely. And The Dog Days has an entire album of free downloads. FREE. ALBUM. How can you go wrong? That kind of thing makes my week.
Edit: Okay, one more! The Sleeping Years. OMG, love at first listen.
I find some of my favorite music at Central Point.
23 okt 2008, 16:44 av jellyfrog23Going through a bit of a dry spell... I'm not finding a whole lot of new music to get excited about lately. My recommendations are letting me down. :P There's a lot that's okay, not much I love.
The exceptions -- The One AM Radio, Ocean Reid, and a couple songs by The Agape Rose (hauntingly beautiful music, completely nonsensical lyrics. Yet they sing them with such emotion that I feel like no, they must mean something but I'm just not deep enough to get it).
I couldn't find Ocean Reid on iTunes so I ordered the CD from his website (http://www.oceanreid.com/boutique.htm) for £4.45. I don't actually have any idea how much money that is (yes, I'm an ignernt provincial American), but regardless, it was well worth it.
