What’s Playing 1.2

Mmm… don’t you like the What’s Playing section on the sidebar? It’s powered by What’s Playing plugin for Winamp 3. Here’s the PHP script I’m using here on

What’s Playing (the way I’m using it) sends the id3 details of the last n songs to a php script. This script then takes those details and writes a bit of html which you then include in your page. What’s Playing can also upload an HTML file to your FTP server if that’s how you would rather do it.

Birthday Report

My birthday was pretty cool. Friday night I went out to dinner with Mel. We went to Stellar, a restaraunt inside Courtenay Central. We shared a wood fire pizza (Rotisserie chicken stuffed pizza with camembert, mozzarella, bacon and onions, very yummy), then went and saw Two Weeks Notice, which although it was a chick flick, was actually a pretty cool movie. We came home and Mel had stealthly left a picnic hamper at home, but because it was raining we did the picnic thing in my room – really romantic like ๐Ÿ™‚ Afterwards, we played Risk with Chris and Mark – Chris won (Kill Blue (Chris) or 24 Countries, by the latter), but Mel had Kill Green (me) and nearly won too, on her first game!… :-/ Mel really enjoyed playing, and we’ll probably all play again on Thursday night

Saturday I slept in and then Chris and Mark gave me a present. It was Lazy Sunday 3, which is what I wanted for my birthday (cheers guys!). But even better was the card they gave me – Mark, it seemed, had spent two days making a birthday card featuring a fake letter sent to Strong Bad asking him to send me an email saying Happy Birthday – LMAO! Excellent, guys!

Later that night a few of my friends (Mark L, Jaron, Ben and Steph) came over and we played xbox for a little while, then got Hells and watched Jackass The Movie. That is one classic movie… if you’ve never seen a Jackass, and are not squeemish, you will be after the end of this movie. ๐Ÿ˜€

Anyway, the birthday was overall the best birthday I’ve ever had, and caps off the fact that this is the best era i’ve had in my life (new job, girlfriend, overall happy to be alive motif). I don’t things could get worse ๐Ÿ˜€ but we’ll see ๐Ÿ˜‰

Got My Move On

Last night was pretty good. Mr Scruff played for over 5 hours I’m sure, but I left after he played ‘Get a Move On’ at around 4:15am. The Scruff started pumping the tunes out about 11:30pm. I was largely disappointed he didn’t play much of his own tracks – He played in this order: Ug, Blackpoll Roll, one I can’t remember (possibly Shrimp), Fish, and then Get a Move On. Disappointed because earlier in the night I saw an LP with Sweet Smoke, Come On Grandad, and Valley of the Sausages on his deck – Maybe we missed an intro track…
But he blew me and Mufasa away with the range of genres he played – 70’s funk, hip-hop, latino, house, and jazz jazz jazz! Mufasa had to leave early, he had a gut-ache ๐Ÿ™
Overall, I give the night a 7/10, mainly because he didn’t play enough of his own tracks, but it was still an enjoyable night ๐Ÿ˜€
