No more automatic posting to Facebook

August 1st, 2018

Got the following notice from dlvr.it - which I use to post to my personal Facebook-page

Hello,

Facebook recently made a number of updates to their platform aimed at improving their ecosystem and reducing misuse and spam. One of these changes includes eliminating the ability for third party apps (such as dlvr.it), to post to personal Facebook Profiles.

Effective August 1st, you will no longer be able to post to personal Facebook Profiles via dlvr.it.

dlvr.it will continue to support posting to Facebook Pages and Groups.

This update is part of a broader change that Facebook is making to enhance platform experience and prevent misuse of personal accounts.

We’re optimistic these changes will ultimately benefit Facebook users, even if there is some near-term pain.

The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time - #93

White Zombie, ‘La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Volume One’ (1992)

Thumbs up! White Zombie, I like, but I knew that from before.

Deafheaven, ‘Sunbather’ (2013)

This was heavy, and suddenly not heavy, and then heavy again.

...That blend of influences has made Deafheaven one of the most polarizing and controversial metal bands of recent years. As McCoy put it, they claim “this triangle of extreme music, experimental music and very sad indie rock....

Dream Theater, ‘Images and Words’ (1992)

Well, not that bad, but...still, not my cup of tea

Kvelertak, ‘Meir’ (2013)

Simply great!!

Quoting Rolling Stone:

....Metal in the 2010s is almost absurdly balkanized, a sea of disconnected subscenes. Think of Kvelertak as the genre’s loutish, lovable unifiers, smashing through metal’s stylistic barriers, Kool-Aid Man–style, and bringing the fun back. These hard-touring Norwegians – whose name means “Stranglehold” – started strong with their self-titled 2010 debut, but their second LP, Meir (“More”), felt like a benchmark for contemporary metal as a whole, an album that playfully, raucously muddied lingering distinctions between mainstream and underground styles...

Finally something that did not hurt my ears and what I will be playing even more in the future.

Sunn O))), ‘Monoliths & Dimensions’ (2009)

...and I have started to regret the "no skip"-rule. I quote Rolling Stone:

“I would never claim that Sunn O))) is a jazz band, but I think there are elements of jazz, if it’s not the tone, it’s the theories and the openness,” Sunn O)))’s Greg Anderson told The Wire. While no one will confuse Dave Brubeck with Sunn O)))’s signature roar – wall-rumbling slabs of drumless, heavily amplified electric-guitar drone – the open-ended platform allows the avant-metal duo to collaborate and experiment with ease.

This album was way out of my league...I now listen to David Bowie's "Heroes" just to wash my ears...

Evanescence, ‘Fallen’ (2003)

Once upon a time...I bought this album and then I actually gave it away, without replacing it with a new one. Won't now either.

The 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time - #100

July 30th, 2018

...according to Rolling Stone. I've decided to listen to all 100, not allowed to skip songs, must listen to the whole album from start to end.

Album #100 Avenged Sevenfold, ‘City of Evil’ (2005)

Enjoyed the last song, apart from that...not my cup of tea.
