new developer intro / music lists?

Hey everyone, I'm new! Brief bio: 22, Austin, Texas. Recent graduate with a BA in Comp. Sci. from the U of TX at Austin, I'm doing mostly web development right now (ASP, ASP.NET, SQL, etc)

My question is: Is there any way to get a list of all the music that someone has listened to (via the "current music" field)? And if not, then how can I go about proposing and implementing such a feature? We could even build some more complex matching features using music... ("find people who listen to the same music that I do...")
I was trying to look at the DB schemas to see where it's stored, but there are so many that I couldn't easily find which table it'd be in, so I went for the "easy" option... ask the people who know! :) Anyway, let me know what ya'll think.

Just thought I'd say hi and make my presence known. =)

I don't really know much about PERL or mySQL, but I'm currently learning how to program in Java at school, and I've got a little background in HTML (also probably not much use here =p). I'm a big fan of LJ, and anything open-source, so I thought I'd join the community and try to keep posted on the latest happenings.

PS: I'm getting ready to register for classes next quarter, and I'm wondering where some of you went to school (since I know are are a lot of LJers from seattle), or just how you happened to learn what you know. I'm a fairly quick study, but it really does help me a lot to have an actual person to show me how to do things (I haven't had much success learning to program from online tutorials), and I would appreciate any reccomendations for places I can get fairly fast-paced intruction in UNIX or PERL etc
