    [–] What's the biggest one hit wonder on Spotify? [OC] cremepat 1 points ago in dataisbeautiful

    Good catch! Spotify attributes that version to both artists so it got picked up here

    [–] What's the biggest one hit wonder on Spotify? [OC] cremepat 2 points ago in dataisbeautiful

    That's correct! If you include both the original and the Billy Ray Cyrus version it's closer to 70%

    [–] What's the biggest one hit wonder on Spotify? [OC] cremepat 3 points ago in dataisbeautiful

    It doesn't include remixes--I went by whether or not Spotify classified them as the same song. Some remixes Spotify lumps in with the original, but for Lil Nas X they didn't

    I'm sort of at the mercy of Spotify's API here. It collapses remixes into the original song in some cases, and in others it keeps them separated. I just went with whatever the API gave me. In this case, the Billy Ray Cyrus version was separate from the original, thus the score of 39%

    Yep, I only looked at artists with 100 million total listens or more

    That's fair, but my intent for this analysis is to find what's a one hit wonder in the modern consciousness.

    Most one hit wonder analyses I've seen use the time the artist spent on the charts, and whether or not they ever charted again. For this, I wanted to see what artists are one hit wonders as determined by current listening data.

    I defined a "Spotify one hit wonder" as an artist with one song that made up the vast majority of their total listens on Spotify.

    I gathered data using this API, and I did all the coding+chart in R. I wrote about the process in more detail here, along with more charts.

    I also made a Spotify playlist so you can enjoy all these fine songs!

    [–] Looking for help with my small front yard cremepat 2 points ago in HomeImprovement

    If you want to lay woodchips I'd suggest you look into sheet mulching. It's enormously easier than pulling weeds-you lay down a biodegradable weed suppressing layer like cardboard or newspaper, then top it with a few inches of compost and mulch.

    I've ripped out weeds by hand and sheet mulched and I'd recommend the latter any day. Plus, it leads to really great soil in a year or two once it all breaks down!

    I'd discourage using weed barrier fabric... it has a really unfortunate tendency to start poking back up, especially around the edges, and can look super ugly pretty fast.

    Wow, got any background info on that awesome fan?

    [–] What is this plant? I found this image online cremepat 4 points ago in whatsthisplant

    If it's not lavender it could also be santolina

    [–] What is this plant (Florida) cremepat 1 points ago in whatsthisplant

    To me it actually looks like a Tree of Heaven (particularly the bark and leaves). It's a really weedy, fast growing tree

    [–] Hey I’m looking to start a garden, but my backyard is full of plants like this. There are many more that are dead and much taller over this one. What is the best way to remove them? cremepat 2 points ago in whatsthisplant

    That looks like it could be Japanese knotweed. If it is, I'm really sorry--you'll want to Google for more information, but it's extremely difficult to remove. I've heard of people having some success injecting herbicide directly into the stems. Your local government might also have an abatement program.

    [–] My dad's front yard is looking great! (Los Angeles, CA) cremepat 1 points ago in gardening

    Which ones are you referring to? He's got California poppies, Mexican tulip poppies, and nasturtiums that are yellow-ish

    [–] My dad's front yard is looking great! (Los Angeles, CA) cremepat 7 points ago in gardening

    Thanks! He did it himself with some basic ideas and input from me. The plan originally was to do sweeps of one type of plant spiraling around towards the agave in the center. We planted that out, sort of, but as time's gone on I think he's planted stuff where it felt right

    [–] My dad's front yard is looking great! (Los Angeles, CA) cremepat 33 points ago in gardening

    He hand waters, but most of these plants are drought tolerant and don't require that much water. Things are looking really great now since LA got some rain, though!
