As tradition, I post an annual "Best of" list based on my scrobbles. In case you don't know what scrobbles are, it's synonymous with plays. Of tracks, of artists, of albums. Around this time every year, I visit my charts on last.fm and see, based on play-count, which artists, tracks, and albums I loved. But, instead of the usual boring enumeration, I worked quite hard on putting together a visualization of the entire thing. Brings me back to my college thesis days, something I'm so glad is over. Something about numbers and data can be quite...tedious. But the results are lovely.
Dark horses of the year:
