Another last.fm mashup - News about your favourite artists

I have just published a little application that grabs the top 50 artists from your Last.fm profile and searches for the latests news about them from Google News. The results are produced in RSS format.

You're all more than welcome to give it a whirl, its a Yahoo Pipes application available at:

http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?
_id=ABqGDuCD3BGo542qJZhxuA&_render=rss&username={username}

Just make sure that you replace add your Last.fm username at the end of the URL.

Feel free to view the pipe source and let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement.

UPDATE (08 Nov): I have just added another URL parameter to specify the top # artists from last.fm. For instance, if you only wanted your top 10 artists to be included in the search, add &artists=10 to the end of the above URL. By default, it searches for the top 50.
