    I know this is a vinyl forum, and discogs is great. But I don't think it's very telling of what someone listens to. For instance, I have all of Bjork's albums on vinyl, but is Bjork my favorite artist? I like Bjork a lot but absolutely not. I listen to vinyl, but 99% of everything I listen to is still mp3s. So I think it gives a better scope of what everyone listens to. I use last.fm to keep track of everything I listen to, and interact with friends, bands and event pages, etc on there. I hardly ever use it as a radio function.

    Does anyone else have one?

    Mine is in my signature ;)

    Just started using last.fm in the past few months. I've known about it for quite awhile, but I never really understood exactly what it was. I always thought it was a service like Pandora, but I could never get it to work. But now I get it :) With how much I use Spotify/iTunes it is very nice knowing what my most played songs/artists are, and keeping tabs on everything.

    I stopped scrobbling last year once Amazon came out with Amazon Prime music.

    I originally used last.fm for its recommendations based off of what I'd scrobble, but now I mostly use it to catalog all the shows I go to/I'm planning on attending. I'm sure there's a dedicated service for that, but I'm too lazy to find out.

    I started using it like a year ago and at first I was *obsessed* with it but I've fallen off the wagon, mostly because the Scrobblr app crashes constantly on my Mac.

    Also, I mostly listen to music on Spotify now rather than iTunes and I keep getting an error message when I try to download the Spotify scrobbling app.

    i know, sorry. i just can't get into it. know it's important and the man's a talent, but it (and all jazz) is just such a snooze for me. homegirl needs a harmony and a thick beat tbh.
