What way do yous do playlists then? And how many etc.

Not counting ones you subscribe to or save.

Like do you have genre bins that you add stuff to, or a mixture of themes or what.

The building beside the one I work in is being demolished. One of the most cathartic things I've ever watched. Serious system in taking a building apart too. Not just a case of whacking the shit out of it with a wrecking ball apparently.

I would walk by Boland's Mill every day as that was bring demolished. They basically had a giant robot dinosaur chewing the concrete until it fell down.

I go by genre. I pick a genre, (House for instance), and i search for users playlists. I listen to a few users playlists through and save all the songs i love and have never heard before to a new playlist for myself. rinse and repeat for any genre.

Exactly what they're using here, it's class. They just tore down 2 big 2 storey concrete support pillars that used to be the corner of the building by grabbing them with that thing and yanking them over after spending most of the afternoon using a blow torch to cut through the metal frame that was attached at the top to hold the roof

I used to use them for albums but then I realised you can just add albums, or the functionality for that was added, I'm not sure. I've only restored a few now, I've got summer ones for when I'm hanging around on the patio or bbqing, general stuff I like one, liked from Radio one, etc Ones I didn't restore were gig ones, where I'd look up the set list of acts on their tour and then listen to just the tunes they were doing live. Old EP mixes too.

some stage times released, including main stage. Not going, at a wedding this weekend, but once the stage times are panning out, making me more and more jealous

Only going on the Sunday, I know next to nothing on the line up and what I do know seems to be on the Fri/Sat. Even a few I'd found from listening to a spotify play list are on the other days. Going to have to do some cramming for the week to find somebody to listen to.

I'd be going to Kiasmos on Sunday night at Rankin's wood if I were going. Good stuff, quite like Moderat but no vocals.

I might be going this year, waiting on confirmation about a ticket. Loads of Irish bands I want to see. There's about twenty-five acts I'd like to get to so that justifies me going.

Just looking at the clashfinder there and not including the mindfield events which must be about another 4 or 5 stages between food/theatre/leviathan etc there's 26 different stages where's you can see music. Some of them are just places like the just eat retreat and the likes but given the size of the festival that's quite impressive.

Sure Body and Soul alone has about half a dozen stages. It really is jam packed. I wasn't all the pushed on this year but I'm looking forward to it now that its getting close.
