Schnapszahl vs. Repdigit – 111,111 Plays on Last.FM
I can’t help myself, but I prefer the German term „Schnapszahl“ (schnapps digit) to the mathematical „repdigit“. The latter would make more sense in my case if it were spelled „rapdigit“, because quite a few of the 111,111 plays I just hit at Last.FM have been rap and hip-hop songs.
Not familiar with Last.FM? Visit it yourself, or – if you read German – check out my blog post from 2007.
My 50,000th and 100,000th play on Last.FM happened to be Funkadelic’s „One Nation Under a Groove“. The 111,111th play is a different version of „One Nation“ – featuring just the duo of Dennis Chambers (drums) and Gary Grainger (bass).
It is an excerpt from Dennis‘ great DVD „In the Pocket“.
