What music are you guys listening to while you're programming/browsing the forum? I, for example, am listening to Kicks! by MELL right now.

Right now? Nothing.

Usually while I program: I use Pandora.com - I have a bunch of stations - but mainly rap and screamo.

I was just listening to Sweet Child 'o Mine a second ago. The Gunner's version, that is, and not that violated, corrupted version by Sheryl Crow...:mad:

What's the point of posting a new message for every single song by MELL (whoever the hell that is)?

I listen to 70's, 80's & 90's music. No rap, country or any other crap.

Currently not listening to: MELL.

I don't think the CBoard administrators were aware that they'd explicitly have to mention that this ISN'T MYSPACE in the forum rules.

Current mood: Slightly annoyed.

Right now I'm at work, so no music :(
But such threads shouldn't be needed! Everyone knows that everyone is always listening to Metallica! >: D

This is MELL. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MELL)

As for why I post "Every song", I wasn't. I actually was cycling through several of her songs, and was just posting what I was litening to at the moment. Although I can see how that could annoy some people, even if the topic is "What are you listening to now?"...

Such a topic are considered as a "spam" topic on some other forums. Whether the mods of Cboard see it that way is a different matter.

Oh, lets not get all emo. This is GD people shoudl be able to talk about what music they like. If you dont like dont read.

Really? One of the other forums I go to has a topic just like this pinned in the General Discussion.

Then again, Cboard is a more professional board, so a frivolous topic like this could be marked as spam.

(Currently listening to Saints of Los Angeles by Motley Crue)

Interesting how many Beetles references she throws into that song... Oh, and it's not a cover.

If you want to keep people updated about what "music" you are listening to just use Last.fm and be done with it.

Mod side: I'd say having a topic about what type of music you listen to is perfectly fine. Having a topic where people keep posting what they are listening to at some moment in time would be spammy.

If images are allowed in the signature (I can't remember if they are) then using last.fm's image thing that lists your last X songs would be better then this topic.

I usually Cycle pandora with fusion, jazz, electronica, metal stations, or shoutast with SKY fm jazz stations and a local jazz station.

I dont think its that important or interestign to know what music people are listening to at the moment, this isnt mySpace. That and I'm not going to get into a musical discussion with kids that are young enough to see Metallica as olde tymey, or classic rock....

Exactly. I couldn't care less what people are listening to at this very second. Listen to Klingon Opera for all I care.

I think you're all too moody and whine too much xP
Spam means conversation, except if it's only one guy, and conversation is good! And I'm a kid (compared to some of you guys D: if you lived through the 80's, you're old, period >: D) and I don't call Metallica old timers, I call them gods! ^^

It does not help in my situation - I'm listening to the music only while driving, and I have no internet access from my build-in auto cd/mp3 player

Which means you can't post in this topic anyways since you obviously can't post while driving ;)

Oh and it depends on how you listen to your music while driving. If you use an iPod you can sync it with iTunes and the last.fm plugin will update it then.

posting while driving will require a little bit of job including opening Web-access from my phone, writing a message on the phone keyboard while driving and risking to be stopped by the police for using the phone while driving...

Too much overhead for such a trivial task. But it is still doable. While connecting my cd-player to internet - is something unrichable $)

You aren't thinking like a programmer :D

Write a program that uses the last.fm api and then keep a record of the songs you listened to while driving. When you get to the computer fire up the program and enter in the songs you listened to.

Personally I think the whole idea of sharing what you listened to is a big meh.

But does anyone care what someone else is listening to? I can't understand the point of updating your profile with the current song that's playing, other than for a marketing reason to promote those songs...
