250,000 Scrobbles 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.

“Certainly, if an individual was stopped and accused of shoplifting after
walking out of Neiman-Marcus they would expect to be eventually told
what they allegedly stole. It would be absurd for an officer to tell
the accused that ‘you know what you stole I’m not telling.’ Or, to
simply hand the accused individual a catalog of Neiman-Marcus’ entire
inventory and say ‘it’s in there somewhere, you figure it out.’”
