re: turntable.fm

Can't remember if it was mentioned here or not, but I just posted this in another place and thought I'd reiterate here.

I've played around on turntable.fm a little bit and, while it has some cool aspects, it turns the experience into more of a contest or game than I'm comfortable with. I'd rather just hang with people I know and play tunes instead of voting things up or down. Also, the chat portion of turntable.fm is deemphasized in favor of some totally dumb "virtual club" setting which looks like an 8 year-old's video game. No thanks.

this is all true but I like that it automatically rotates among the room DJs so your tracks are shuffled better

also if you just create a small room and have a few people in there it's just hanging with people you know playing tunes

i.e. you don't have to bother with the voting business

also like that it sends you an email if one of the "DJs" you're "following" logs on

so you can know if any friends are on

Your positives register with me, but I still think the format/layout is really non-conducive to a good time.

it definitely looks corny. the avatars are like Wii characters.

oh yeah forgot I also like that you can search and play tracks from a database. I can't really upload anything from work so I could only use outloud as a listener

turntable.fm, front page:

We're very sorry, but while we would love to let you in and rock out with us, we need to currently restrict turntable access to only the United States due to licensing constraints.

We are working very hard to try and get you in as soon as possible.

That settles it, I guess? I think Outloud has worked really nicely, with few of the problems Listening Room had. It's a pity you have to use you a Twitter/FB account to log in, but you can just create a fake Twitter account like I did. I don't see any need to use another site at the moment.

Zoogz Rift segueing into alleged experimentalism, catrock revisited, intermittent rain showers and possibly some frogs.

night time bump.

that sounds sexual, but it isn't. (or maybe it is.)

Anyone tried this Google+ Hangout thing yet? Apparently you can share YouTube, but also music?

somebody is playing a guitar and making a guitar-face

the ~tbrr~ room we did on LR for avantgarde/noise/etc was great for about four days before the software went to shit

id like to do something similar on outloud but the 20mb limit is pretty restrictive on duration and/or quality for a lot of this stuff idk

Do it!
