250,000 Scrobbles

last.fm screenshot

Just slightly less than 6 years since hitting 100000 tracks scrobbled, I’ve reached the quarter-million song mark.

My scrobbling rate has clearly accelerated, since it took me almost 11 years to hit 100000. I attribute this to 3 things:

  1. A greater proportion of my listening happens through devices that scrobble. Though, for some folks, this is the golden age of vinyl, I’ve fully embraced technology.
  2. The streaming revolution means that there are millions of songs available to me to play at any given moment. I have fully embraced this, too.
  3. Most nights, I play drone music while I sleep. This represents hundreds of spins per week.

My 250000th scrobble was “Skepticasks”, by Bozart.

There is, in fact, no reason to believe that any given natural phenomenon,
however marvelous it may seem today, will remain forever inexplicable.
Soon or late the laws governing the production of life itself will be
discovered in the laboratory, and man may set up business as a creator
on his own account. The thing, indeed, is not only conceivable; it is
even highly probable.
- H. L. Mencken, 1930
