Boris Johnson – an 8-bit tribute

My colleague and pal, Clicky Steve (unexpectedbowtie), made this epic music video. He writes:

The infamously bumbling Mayor of London […]

I’m convinced. Great work, Steve! :D

I miss you, Rdio (and some Last.fm stats)

Farewell Rdio 2015-12-15.png

I forgot to post this Rdio farewell screenshot for posterity1. Still sad.

  1. The Rdio farewell page is still displayed when signing into your account. 
  2. 2015-12-15 is the date I took the screenshot. 

My ticket-smashing Apple Music playlist

Using Rdio Enhancer, I saved a CSV file of my ticket-smashing Rdio playlist that has 154 songs (which I’ve shared on Cloudup), then manually recreated the playlist on Apple Music.

Four songs weren’t available on Apple Music.

  • Control by Alexisonfire (Rdio)
  • One in a Million by Bodyjar (Rdio)
  • She Broke My Heart, so I Broke His Jaw by Just Surrender (Rdio)
  • Won’t Turn Back by Our Lady Peace (Rdio)

San Dimas High School Football Rules by The Ataris was on the Rdio playlist twice, so I removed that dupe.

Enjoy!😎


For posterity, here are the details for the playlist:

  • Name: Ticket-smashing (catchy)
  • Description: Catchy rock songs to zone into helping people in support, and everything related.
  • Song count: 151
  • Duration: 9 hours, 50 minutes

Rdio Enhancer

While there isn’t a way to automatically import my favorites from Rdio, I finally installed Rdio Enhancer — a Google Chrome extension — which adds features like Export (Favorites) to CSV1, and several playlist additions, including Remove Duplicates2 and seven sorting options.

I’ll post an Apple Music playlist of my previously posted Ticket-smashing (catchy) playlist on Rdio as soon as I can. It has 155 songs now.🙂


  1.  I have 7,325 items in my Favorites. I say “items” because it includes stand-up comedy by Mitch Hedberg. 
  2. Remove Duplicates removed nine songs from my Ticket-smashing (catchy) playlist. Since the list wasn’t in any order, sifting through 164 songs to manually find duplicates would’ve been tedious. Sweet. 

Watching Rx Bandits live in Philadelphia

Despite intermittent streaming issues, I’m still really stoked to watch them again!
