Rolling Stone Top Albums List (75-51)

I have been continuing through the Rolling Stone Top 500 albums of all time list at a steady pace. Here are my comments on numbers 75-51...


Rolling Stone Top Albums List

I am going through the Rolling Stone Top 500 albums of all time list. I am cheating a bit by starting at 100 and working my way to number one.

Even if you do not agree with the RS rankings or my numeric grades below, it is a fun list because it exposes you to some albums that might be outside of your usual listening genre that are worth a listen. I am up to number 74 on the list and these are my findings so far...


Development Productivity: Part 2, "dot" file configurations

This is the second post of a five part series aimed at development productivity. The subjects covered in the series will be:

  1. Basic linux commands
  2. "dot" file configurations
  3. SSH, Networking commands
  4. PHP and git command options and shortcuts
  5. Process and disk monitoring

This part deals with Unix/Linux configuration files that start with a ".".


Professional Learning Goals

I have seen blog posts where people list some goals. The reason for publicly listing these goals is partially to be held accountable and to use as a reference point to look back upon. I think that this is a great idea. The list below focuses on work related goals I have. A further post will list leisure/general goals.


audio playlist skin github project

I have been looking for a simple way to create an HTML5 audio playlist for use on my Music Spotlight - Songs page. I narrowed the search down to audio.js because it focuses on audio not audio/video and is fairly simple to implement. There is also an existing playlist demo. This is a good baseline, but I wanted to be able to shift tracks with GUI buttons and also adjust the volume, handle playlist errors, etc so decided to create a skin for the player.

TV On The Radio - Will Do ()

Really good song off of TV on the Radio's new album Nine Types of Light.  I love the lyrics

 

...Your love makes a fool of you
You can't seem to understand
Our heart doesn't play by rules
And love has it's own demands

 

But I'll be there to take care of you
If ever you should decide
But you don't want to waste your life
In the middle of a lovesick lullaby

Anytime will do
My love
Anytime will do...
