Tangentially about music

It’s funny how some things are so hard to let go of, but when you do, you realize they never really mattered that much.

For example, my audioscrobbler app stopped working several iOS updates ago, and on the rare occasion where I listen to music on my PC, I use Media Player Classic, which I don’t have a scrobbler plugin for. So I haven’t had any music I’ve played tracked on Last.fm since September of last year.

And it’s not really bothering me as much as I thought it would. In fact, I’m only writing about it because I randomly thought about it last night and said to myself “Welp,” shrugged, and continued on with life.

It kind of saddens me that I’ll no longer have a “big picture” to look at of my listening habits, and because I just love pointless data like that. But on the other hand, I love never feeling that pressure to listen to a certain band/album/song more or less to influence the numbers in one direction or another. Yeah. Rest assured that I absolutely went to lengths to fudge all that useless data that I once held so dear. This is what happens when I don’t have to be held accountable for anything.

Anyway, this has been another one of those completely pointless posts. Future Ryan will appreciate it and then think about Last.fm for a bit and say to himself, “Welp,” shrug, and continue on with life.
