986 Minutes

Recommended Posts

Apparently Pandora keeps track of how much time I listened to my Heavy Metal Station.

 

What's 986 divided by 60?

Significantly shorter than the total time I have spent listening to "Monolith of Possession" by Krallice.

"Flood" by Boris is clocking in second at 11937 minutes (199 hours) spent listening to a single song.

8019 minutes / 134 hours listening to "Tristram" from the Diablo soundtrack on record, probably double that from before my starts started being logged.

 

Those are probably my three most listened to songs ever. Can't really confirm it though.

16.43 hours.

 

Damn. Not even a whole day

 

That's about how much music I listen in a single day.

I'm not sure what the most is. I think it'll be Wheel of Time from Blind Guardian, which I've probably listened on average... 2 times a week since I know it, no wait, more than that because I listened it more earlier on, maybe 3 times a week. I've started listening July 2010, so it's 7 years and 13 weeks, which makes for 7*52+13=377 weeks. 377*3=1131 times, times 8:56 minutes=10103 minutes=168 hours.

 

And I think that's a low estimate.

I don't have stats.

 

But I only listened music for 7 years, so I guess I'm at a higher /year rate.

I have absolutely zero stats to back this, but I would guess that my average track length is something around 7 minutes where normal is probably closer to 4. Over the course of 243,000 songs, that can make a big difference.

 

Only thing that might be dragging the number back down is my videogame music.

The biggest thing that my stats are missing is Blind Guardian, Radiohead, and Opeth.  Listened to all three of them easily 1000+ times in the year or two before it started logging.  Blind Guardian maybe closer to like 3000.

 

Blind Guardian is still my #1 most played in spite of it though.  hah

I actually don't spin them that much these days, but Nightfall in Middle-Earth was my favorite album for like a decade.

In fact, the average length of the songs in the list that I typically listen (a huge list on shuffle where I put in the tracks I like more additional times to give them a weight) is above 8:20.

 

I was talking about hours of a single song per year though.

I miss the days when last.fm could spit out numbers for these things, before they went all corporate minimalism.

It varies so wildly between artists.  Like even if you just take my top 10, Krallice is probably around 12 minutes and Boris might be close to 10, Nobuo Uematsu and Yasunori Mitsuda are probably 2 minutes tops.

By the way, have I ever posted this song before? I discovered the band a while ago and they're amazing. This song is my favorite song if you exclude album finishers.

    • I can only speak for myself, but when people refuse to attempt to communicate with people outside of fully fluent conversational English, they're simply being jerks.   Though, the country (not a majority, of course), elected someone as Presidents whose platform was essentially "I'll get a jerk for you." How 'jerks' are appealing, at any level, always baffels me.
    • Now your just back-peddling.

      A) Many of the stuff highlighted in the article took place between 1917 and the 1960s. So Not all of it was over a hundred years ago. WW2 was 79 years ago dude. L2Math B) Read the article. Most of it targeted Germans, not the Japanese, and that fueled growing xenophobia to target any non-English language. So much so as to criminalize any language spoken verbally in public that wasn't English in certain jurisdictions.

      So again, you said I was making a slippery slope argument. I wasn't. This shit already happened, even with languages of peoples we weren't at war with!   Other countries are also not America. Australia isn't America, Canada isn't America, Britain isn't America. Which is why any argument that mentions well it worked in X country falls apart.  Those countries aren't America. They don't have the same demographics, size, bureaucracy, etc.   If you have an official language, it sets precedent in the sense that we have already ESTABLISHED/ENSHRINED in the LAW that X language is the language of the land. Which makes justifying the criminalization of any non-official language so much easier.   If you try to criminalize speaking a language, you cannot currently justify it based on any Law that states English is the official language.    What you failed to see is that we have done it in the past.  By making it a FEDERAL LAW, it makes it easier for FEDERAL LAW to CRIMINALIZE it, not just local jurisdictions that relied heavily upon xenophobia of the time to make it pass. Criminalizing it right now isn't going to happen. But making a Federal Law making English the official language (And it's not going to stop there, it's going to go down Nolder territory of all official documents, no translations, nothing) allows for congress to pass criminalization laws in the future, without having to heavily rely on xenophobia. They can merely argue "But it's the official language!"

      Side Thought:
      If you want to make it so no federal agencies have to translate documents to foreign languages, cause F those guys. You don't need a Federal Law making English the Official language to do that. I'm pretty sure a Presidential Directive will accomplish that. Infact, I'm pretty sure most of what you guys want with it, can be accomplished through Presidential directives without wasting time in Congress on something so trivially stupid.
