My girlfriend and me wanted to experiment a little for our new year wishes, so we looked at what was handy and came up with this little video... We know it's not perfect but we're pretty happy with it. Tell us what you think!
Hop, je viens de payer des nouveaux habits à Ébruiter (le blog qui parle de musique à ceux qui ont des oreilles) qui ne se plaisait plus dans son premier ensemble... Grid system, bien sûr. Toujours WordPress, avec un thème maison (merci Boks et Greg) et des hacks par-ci par-là.
Et puisque finalement j'aime bien le concept, je vais essayer de reprendre l'habitude de poster des trucs. Ça va être super.
I wanted to do this for quite some time: a place that logs tracks I listen to.
Introducing TWPlaylist! Thanks to Twitter and a Winamp Plugin, all tracks that I listen to (at work) are stored on a dummy account (if you know a plugin that does the same for iTunes, please let me know). And to keep things nice and smooth, I set up a quick page that pulls this data and displays it thanks to some AJAX magic... Tracks link to a Discogs search page to find more about them.
As you can read the project page's bottom, everything I wrote is opensource. HTML, CSS and JS ; help yourself. Nothing too fancy, but it could prevent you from wasting time... By the way, the code should be self-explanatory, but if it's not I can help.
You will probably notice the some tracks' data look weird, in fact the Winamp plugin chokes on special characters such as "&" and accented letters... I hope this gets fixed one day.
I've never been a big fan of Twitter as I think most user don't use it the way it should be used, for example by having private discussions or retweeting too much. However it's a pretty interesting platform for experimentation and art projects. What do you think?
I've been working on this track for quite some time now. It was supposed to be a collab with The Beetlestones but unfortunately it seems like I'm not the only one with busy week-ends! So I finished it on my own and polished it today...
