Phew.... Hope this comes out correctly smiley

YUI and Yui battling it out in the top this year, pretty much alone in the top, then a sharp decline in plays down to place 15 where it flattens out more.

Genres seems to be: J-Pop, Symphonic Metal, Power Metal, Progressive Metal, Soundtrack, Heavy Metal, Gothic Metal and J-Rock (in that order).

Some clear outsiders in my charts are Dido (only non-Japanese pop), Johnny Cash (country), Frank Zappa and Genesis.

On another note, been kind of a rewatch week att Skull HQ this last few weeks, I've seen all animes in this post and the last one before smiley

Blog: N(yui) Poll
Not sure if anyone gets the headline joke, it's suppose to be a joke anyway...

A new poll is up, this time about some of the most used tags on my blog. Last one confirmed what I always knew, the butler did it.

And about the yui in the title, I now have two Yui's on my top 10 most played artists (overall) on last fm:

1: Yui Makino 3,456 plays

9: YUI 1,000 plays

What's the odds that two Yui's would end up on my top 10? Not sure if its a really common name in Japan or what.

Other than j-pop I mostly listen to progressive or symphonic metal these days. Been looking around on spotify and some of my new finds includes Opeth, Krypteria and Amaseffer.

Oh, and just recently installed my wacom on my new computer, so maybe I'll draw something nice 'till next time smiley, cya.

This time no-one was sick! Was watching metallica at the Globen this monday, and it was great. It was a new concert instead of the one they we're suppose to do march 8, but James Hetfield was sick so that one was cancelled.

Also bought a new game last week, Left 4 Dead. Haven't played that much but the new multiplayer mode with zombies vs living is really cool, even though I mostly just died and didn't understand anything in the beginning.

And of course, lots of WoW, our guild just killed Hodir in 25 man, and we have killed yogg-saron in 10 man. Here's a pic from that kill:

A fun idea, one artist for each letter in the alphabet. Going by my plays on last.fm it wasn't very hard to find an artist i liked for each letter. Whats the most surprising artist pick?

A - Ayreon
B - Blind Guardian
C - Choro Club
D - Dido
E - Elf
F - Frank Zappa
G - Genesis
H - Hirano Aya
I - IOSYS
J - Johann Sebastian Bach
K - KOTOKO
L - Luca Turilli's Dreamquest
M - Machinae Supremacy
N - Nightwish
O - Opeth
P - Pagan's Mind
Q - Queens of the Stone Age
R - ROUND TABLE featuring Nino
S - Symphony X
T - The Brilliant Green
U - Uriah Heep
V - Virgin Steele
W - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
X - Xandria
Y - Yui Makino
Z - ZZ Top

The list is using my brand spanking new 'music' markup tag which makes automatic links to last.fm smiley

Blog: Small things can be good too...
I've done some small updates I've been thinking about doing for a long time. The comments are back! Yay, now I can talk with myself both in the shoutbox and in the comments! smiley Also removed the big box on the frontpage. It was simply too much space for a few headlines. Now you will get right on the latest blog post (hello!). I've also reworked the sidebar a bit, now a small box with recent posts are there (as a replacement for the missing headlines box above the blog), and it moves! If you haven't had time to vote in the poll (you really should) the poll goes on top, but if you already voted, the headlines goes first instead. Also changed a few things in the coding, but mostly non-visible stuff.

Now, for the second time in history, a post with an image!

Yui Makino CD's

Two Yui Makino albums fresh from japan! smiley
The picture quality is not the greatest, taken with my old S700i.

Ah, and as the observant people already noticed, I've removed the little sidebar displaying the music. It will be back (sometime) with a text-based equivalent later.

It's back smiley

Today marks my third month using last.fm for music aggregation. And today I've also scrobbled my 10000th song! That is equivalent to around 110 songs per day. Not so surprising since I listen a lot both at work and home.

My top artists for these last three months:

ArtistPlays
1Makino Yui655
2Yuki Kajiura465
3the brilliant green381
4 Tommy february6 351
5 Demons & Wizards 333
6 Tommy heavenly6 293
7 Dido 271
8 In Flames 227
9 Nightwish 216
10 Iced Earth 210

Summary: Although Yui Makino (i guess this is the correct way to write it) is dominating in the top, the brilliant green, Tommy Heavenly6 and Tommy February6 all features Tomoko Kawase, so she is at 1025 plays if they would be added together smiley.

Mostly J-Pop and Metal, with some regular pop (dido) in between. But this top ten is just ~30% of my total plays check my last.fm page for more details.

Was thinking of throwing in a picture in a post (would be the first!) but it stills seems like a big step... A table is fine too, haven't used one of those either, so something new at least!

November is comming to an end, and that means this months highscore lists will soon be finalized and forever remembered! Hurry up and get a fat score and get your name on the list!

Working on an xmas design but right now it looks more like USA propaganda, blue, white, red and some stars...

Blog: Skallen.net Version 3!
Hi!

A new look! W00t! Been talking about it for like forever, who would have thought it was true? Tried to make it a bit "2.0-ish" and not as tight and crowded as my last design.

Here's a small changelog:

» New Design
Duh, kinda obvious right?

» New themes
Yes, the new design comes with three themes right from the start, and maybe even more later. The themes can be selected from the small colored boxes in the top right.

» Updated info
Some info updated about me and about the site.

» Games on the site
Yes, the games are finally integrated into the site, and with working highscores! Also the old game links redirects here.

» My music
A new sidebar on the blog page, where some of the music I listen to shows up.

Some more stuff to probably, but that is the major parts I think. Enjoy!


****EDIT****
The RSS-feed is dead at the moment, will fix it soon.
