ShuffleLog 12-Oct-06: The 1 Month Anniversary

It's been 4 full weeks since this abomination reared its ugly head. What's one month, anyway? The paperclip anniversary?

ShuffleLog 12-Oct-06
  1. Way Out West, "Absinthe Dreams" - Don't Look Now (Disk 1)
  2. Duran Duran, "New Moon On Monday" - Seven and the Ragged Tiger
  3. Lyrics Born, "Bad Dreams Interlude" - Same !@#$ Different Day
  4. Bloc Party, "Price Of Gas" - Silent Alarm
  5. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, "Upon This Tidal Wave Of Young Blood" - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
  6. The Lovemakers, "Dance" - Times of Romance
  7. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, "Details Of The War" - Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
But after 4 full weeks of this nonsense, definite patterns have emerged.

  • Yeah, we've now played something like a full 75% of the CYHSY record, not including the two repeats.
  • Perfecto Chills Vol. 3 weighs in with a solid 50% of all of its tracks played thus far (11 of 22).
  • The Lovemakers Times of Romance clocks in with 46% (5 of 11 tracks)
  • The omnipresent Oakland Faders comes close: 14 out of a total 40 tracks (35%) on Fader Nation Vol. 1 (thank Christ), with only a single repeat. It just feels like a lot of repeats out of them.
But damn, are we gonna play an entire record before one Pixies track comes up?

If anyone friggin' reads this, I'm at a crossroads:

1) I may try to continue, uniterrupted, day-by-day, until I play 622 tracks, and see what the patterns are, or
2) I may move some stuff around and see how it poisons the experiment. For instance, get the Oakland Faders and CYHSY off of there, post haste.

Which will it be? Don't make me choose for myself.
