Since installing Ubuntu I’ve not been able to get XMMS to play my music that I stream from home.
I’ve done enough digging to realise the problem is in my code – I’ve just not fixed it yet.
Then this morning I realised that I had been following a pattern.
1. Hear song I really like on 6 Music.
2. Buy album on the basis of that one song.
3. Generally be disappointed with rest of album.
Albums and bands that have fallen into that category so far:
Let Us Never Speak Of It Again by Out Hud
Speakerboxxx by OutKast
Give Up by The Postal Service
Riot On An Empty Street by Kings of Convenience
The Futureheads by The Futureheads
Thunder Lightning Strike by The Go! Team
You Are The Quarry by Morrissey
Perhaps I should try to listen to more than one song from the album before I part with my cash this time then.
There again, “everyone loves a great whistling record“.
