Playlist blogs are emerging as a distinct subgenre of MP3 blogs. As part of this they are taking on a common layout.
This blog entry catalogs layout patterns in these four playlists:
- I love the java jive and it loves me
- Remix Sunday 58
- Ternura porno
The following is the standard form of these playlists, in order from top to bottom:
- Date and time the post was created.
- An image related to the mood or theme of the playlist.
- Song list, with each song formatted like this:
- Direct links to mp3s.
- Link text usually formatted as “artist – title”
- Sometimes (2/4 cases) with “(release information)” appended.
- A paragraph or two of prose.
- The traditional footer of a blog post. This usually includes a permalink to the post and the date and time that the post was created.
- Comments on the playlist.
In all cases the blog home page incorporates the full text of the playlist inline rather than linking off to a separate document.
The person who posted about Play Twitter in a language I couldn’t identify — it turned out to be Persian (the language of Iran), rather than Arabic — stopped back in the comments on my Audio afspelen in Twitter post and left this note:
hi.i am persian blogger & twitterer!! and now jaiku-er !! your blog is very beauty and in my mind it,s very similar to tumblr.com
list of iranian twitter : twitter.com/mhmazidi
list of iranian jaiku-er! :mhmazidi.jaiku.com
I have created a Greasemonkey-based version of Play Twitter which will run automatically. This frees you from having to invoke a bookmarklet. It works on Jaiku as well as Twitter.
To use it, see the documentation on the Play Twitter home page.
Erno Hannink has done an excellent overview of Play Twitter in Dutch, much better than my original.
Audio afspelen in Twitter – Play Twitter at Enthousiasmeren:
Play Twitter is een handig hulpmiddel waarmee je eenvoudig mp3 files direct kunt afspelen in Twitter.
As a follow-up, he has tested out Play Twitter at the Twitter clone Jaiku and confirmed that it works fine.
Courtesy of the trackbacks on my blog entry, I know that there also exists a blog entry on Play Twitter in either Persian or Arabic. Sorry, I don’t have the chops to say which.
It seemed to me that it would be handy to be able to play audio right in Twitter, so I made a slightly modified version of the del.icio.us PlayTagger bookmarklet which can work on Twitter.
The hack had to have a page to live on, so I got carried away and kludged up a cutesy version of the original: PlayTwitter
Monday 856 AM (ogg)
Monday 856 AM (mp3)
This post is a recording of my own music. The song is an instrumental on acoustic guitar. It is one track played live with no overdubs or edits.
The tune is entitled “Monday 856 AM.” I wrote and recorded it before work on 3/19.
The song, including both the composition and the sound recording, is licensed under Creative Commons BY-SA. The issue of how CC licensing applies to compositions is murky at best, which is why I am stating outright that I have the rights to the composition and I grant others the right to post their own performances of it without paying royalties, given that their own sound recording is under the same license.
I used the 1 Pixel Out player rather than an XSPF player because there is a WordPress plugin on my ISP for the 1 Pixel Out player.
Jay Dedman posted a rant of mine at the 2005 Open Media Developers Conference. In this small clip I’m arguing against participating in unauthorized distribution.
