Meme Theme: Most Popular Music in iTunes

Meme Theme: MY Most Popular Music in iTunes

As started by Michael of Binary Bonsai in his original Flickr post.

The rules:
1) Sort by 'Play Count'.
2) Take screenshot of the top and upload to flickr.
3) Link back to where you first saw this meme.
4) And leave a comment so they know where to look.
5) Include these instructions.

First saw this Meme over at Nixlog (a meme is like a type of idea chain letter). I've been using iTunes for about a month now. In reality the whole Xiu Xiu album would be at the top but I then got the album for xmas (thanks Ty!) and added it and it reset the count.

This is also a test of integrating Flickr, that ever-more-popular web photo service, with jeffwerner.ca. I set up a test account a few months ago, but it's really been the past few weeks that Flickr has become hard to ignore on the web design blog circuit. I'll see how the integration goes--I really want to stop diversifying myself over so many applications and technologies, but man if Flickr ain't the best web application I've used yet.

Already I've noticed a few things after posting this entry from within my Flickr account:

In the case of this particular meme (my first, btw), people are posting it to both their Flickr accounts and their personal blogs. If they're just blogging it after posting it to Flickr then that's cool, it's really only one step for two points of publication. But this particular meme's instructions ask to "leave a comment so they know where to look." So now I have to decide which source to comment on, the Flickr account or the blog.

Finally (though I could/should write a whole new entry just on Flickr photo blogging), you can't control what sizes Flickr produces for your images (maybe you can in the paid pro version). It's great that it does make four different sizes automatically, however. But when posting the photo to my blog, such as the one of my iTunes list, you can't make out the text unless it's full-size, which requires clicking through to the Flickr page from here, then the tiny All Sizes link, then the Large link. And I'm adding a seperate, possibly confusing URL to the mix. And...OK, for now I'll just play around and see how it goes.
