    This reminds me of LastGraph, a cool visualization tool for your listening habits. It looks very similar.
    It can be found at

    Man, that is awesome. I love that they used the area above and below the horizontal. That is brilliant.

    What is most revealing is the segment for ‘Juno.’ Most of the other segments spike quickly and then trail away at varying speeds to nothing.

    Juno spiked very slowly and then found a steady trail and still remains the most significant band at the end of the graph.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets up again in the next holiday season.

    I wonder if the amount of money spent marketing a movie could be overlaid in a meaningful way.

    They should track ticket sales, not BO dollars
