standard layout of playlist blogs

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:

  1. I love the java jive and it loves me
  2. Robot+Proud
  3. Remix Sunday 58
  4. Ternura porno

For example:Ternuro Porno

The following is the standard form of these playlists, in order from top to bottom:

  1. Date and time the post was created.
  2. An image related to the mood or theme of the playlist.
  3. Song list, with each song formatted like this:
    1. Direct links to mp3s.
    2. Link text usually formatted as “artist – title”
    3. Sometimes (2/4 cases) with “(release information)” appended.
  4. A paragraph or two of prose.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

Iranian micro-bloggers

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:

Audio afspelen in Twitter – Play Twitter at Enthousiasmeren

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.

Monday 856 AM

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.

Goodbye Blosxom, hello WordPress: this is the first entry in the rest of my blog.

My first post on the old blog was on March 26, 2003. My last one was April 3, 2007.
