In the most pointless Christmas tradition of all I’ve just uploaded my top tracks, albums and artists from Last.fm to Flickr.
No-one uses Flickr any more and even less people use last.fm. Apart from me and you Phil.
I can just about get Flickr working but I have no idea how last.fm works. I’m not even sure it does work.
This chart implies that something has stopped working in November and December which is odd because, due to travel, I probably listen to more music than ever.
Last year last.fm made their own visualisation thing which was nice. I hoping that would work this year given the URL www.last.fm/user/goodide/listening-report/year
This year it doesn't work, of course, and that url is only for 2016 which makes no sense at all because look at the url, or maybe it's for every year, no... ah well we lost that fight a long time ago. (Or maybe I need to subscribe but I don't understand what that means.)
Anyway Phil, you can enjoy the full charts here Tracks, Albums, Artists.
Thanks Ben. Here are my charts https://www.flickr.com/search/?sort=date-taken-desc&safe_search=1&tags=2017&user_id=35034346050%40N01&view_all=1
Maybe that year listening report URL will work tomorrow... maybe "Last year" means 2017's visuals won't show until 2018? We'll have to wait and see.
I hope you have a good 2018 Ben!

I hope you have a good one too Phil!
By the way Cathedrals is the name of a council ward in Southwark http://www.2.southwark.gov.uk/downloads/file/11101/proposed_cathedrals_ward_map

Ah, yes, council wards would make sense, good thinking. Knowing nothing about a place you'd think they would be good names to use to refer to areas. Apart from no one using them.

LoL, I still use Last.fm. My music on spotify is synchronised there. :)

Happy New Year Phil.
I assume I'm more familiar with wards and ward names because Lisa used to be a councillor. I think lots of people who live nearby would recognise the ward names, but the context would be 'that place is in Cathedrals ward'. I don't think anyone would say, 'want to meet in Cathedrals ward for a coffee' which is the context you're using it for. Arguably 4SQ are using the first use case. That doesn’t mean it’s right of course. It’s still weird and it makes sense to no one but me and you.
