Getting your latest releases from Deezer with Python

  • Have you ever felt like you've missed an album from your favorite artist?
  • Here we will fetch your followed artists and their albums from Deezer API to see whether you missed any releases or not.
  • We just need to send a request to a URL specified in the documentation and information about a user should be in the response.
  • But if we want to fetch all data (like we do now) we would have to use this parameter.
  • To save the full title in a release we would need to store artist's songs in a temporary array.
  • It needs a string (the release date) and it's format.
  • Congratulations, now you know how to check for new releases from artists that you follow.
  • If you're like me and hate missing out on new releases from your favorite artists, I've built a website just for this purpose.

Hundreds of Photos Form a Single Portrait of Britain’s Decline

  • And although photography is now her primary medium—Allchurch best known for her intricate photo collages based on Old Master paintings—that sculptural background can still be glimpsed in the way she digitally assembles hundreds of photographs into fantastical tableaux of British buildings and monuments.
  • Allchurch’s most recent image, “Ghost Towers (After Piranesi),” is modeled on Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s etching “Ancient Circus of Mars with Neighboring Monuments Viewed at the Via Appia,” from the Italian artist’s Roman Antiquities series.
  • Allchurch was drawn to Piranesi because of his background as a failed architect and because of what she calls his “sense of the theatrical.” The etching, one of Piranesi’s capriccios, or fantasies, depicts a Roman cityscape packed with statues, monuments, and architecture.
  • Allchurch’s image maintains the compositional structure of Piranesi’s etching but replaces the Roman artifacts with British iconography ranging from the Glasgow Necropolis to the latest London high-rises.

A year after Weinstein, Rose McGowan is using art to process trauma

  • London (CNN) - Rose McGowan's latest film is nine minutes and nine seconds long.
  • McGowan watches intently, making slow movements as he performs around her.
  • This immersive art film is the latest in a series of creative endeavors McGowan's been pursuing since she publicly accused disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein of rape last October, and distanced herself from Hollywood.
  • McGowan's life, as she tells it, has always been steeped in art.
  • And yet creating her own works of art never occurred to her until now.
  • It was Mashael Al-Rushaid, a friend and founder of London's Heist gallery, who approached McGowan about participating in "Indecision IV," a video she had commissioned from director Tonia Arapovic, dancer James Mulford and sound artist David Triana.
  • McGowan described her participation as a "release" and a form of healing, another step in processing the trauma she experienced after speaking out against Weinstein.

Apple removes Connect feature from Apple music

  • In revamping artist listings on Apple Music, the company is removing Connect posts from artists’ pages – effectively killing off a major part of Apple Music‘s social features.
  • Today we’re streamlining music discovery by removing Connect posts from Artist Pages and For You. This means you’ll no longer be able to post to Connect as of December 13, 2018, but all previously uploaded content will still be searchable until May 24, 2019.
  • Apple says that you’ll still be able to search for previous Connect posts till May 24.
  • But it’s not killing off social features entirely – you can still follow your friends or celebrities, and check out what they’re listening to.
  • Additionally, Apple now offers an automated playlist of songs your friends are tuning into, called ‘Friends Mix’ in the ‘For You’ section.

Hobart's MONA lodges hotel redevelopment plans costing $400m and 2 more years

  • David Walsh has added $100 million and two years to plans for the hotel, theatre and conference centre additions to his MONA Museum outside Hobart.
  • The project with a seven-storey hotel that cantilevers out over the Derwent River will now cost $400 million and, subject to planning and construction processes, will open in 2024 rather than the originally scheduled 2022, MONA founder Mr Walsh said on Wednesday.
  • Funding the project was still "far from finalised" and community consultation could also lead to further changes to the design, Mr Walsh said.
  • The project fundamentally remains the same, with a five-star, 176-room hotel built above a 1075-seat theatre and a conference centre that can seat 1000 people for a banquet-style event.
  • While Mr Walsh has previously spoken of plans to include gaming tables for high rollers in the redevelopment, they did not form part of the current application, Mr Katsalidis said.
