First Tiny Bits o’ Data from LastFM

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I’m having with this mixture of Python, the MusicBrainz API, and the LastFM API. Much more to come about the process itself but, for now, just know that the number of Alice Cooper listeners rose from 1,365,754 on Feb 14, 2019 to 1,365,860 on Feb 15 for a total increase of 106. His total playcount rose from 31,123,429 to 31,126,727 — an increase of 3,298 plays. Lovely data viz will follow the procedural tutorial.
