youtube/last.fm mashup

geek warning...

just come across this, which offers last.fm users a youtube stream based on their listening habits. i got emmylou harris, ornette coleman, jolie holland, can and francoise hardy plus a very nice clip of cassandra wilson and david murray in the studio. so far so good. and then i got nirvana's 'smells like teen spirit'. now maybe there are a couple of plays for kurt and his chums lurking on my playlist. but there is certainly no fucking razorlight, who came up next with some song with 'wire' in the title. when the ukulele orchestra of great britain turned up doing the nirvana tune soon after i remembered that youtube can't differentiate between artist names and track titles (the fab pop combos wire and spirit feature heavily in my playlist). doh. so, er, if someone could sort that out and maybe find some way of maybe scrobbling video plays or adding clips to your youtube profile...anyway, it's worth a peep, innit.

I got Steely Dan - Deacon Blue (yay), Neptunes remix of Sympathy For The Devil (urgh), gavin harrison talking about being a working drummer (interesting) and the brilliant clip from the Dylan documentary where he does a live (and somewhat amphetamine-driven) remix of what's written on the outside of a London Pet shop (marvellous). So - not bad really. I actually think it may fill a few bored hours at home instead of watching awful telly!

be careful - you might end up with Deacon Blue next time, and there's no dignity in that (see what i did there?)
