Think outside the box: Pandora.com


Alright, anyone who hasn't heard of Pandora.com NEEDS to check it out. I've done my best to ensure all my loved ones know about it, but for any stragglers, you need to have a listen. This is a free streaming online radio service that one can customize according to one's music tastes. Enter either a favorite artist or song title, and it will create a "station" based on your selection and proceed to play songs that feature the same musicality as your artist/song.
Stations I recommend (these are all group/artist names):
-Rufus Wainwright -The Postal Service -Regina Spektor -Sufjan Stevens -The Weepies -Mat Kearney -Spoon -Andrew Bird -Ok Go -Mika -Glen Hansard & Marketta Irglova

I'll be making a "Summer Mix" CD soon and I just bought a spool of blank CDs, so if you'd like a copy, let me know. Otherwise I'll just send them to my usual mailing list.

I realize that this has nothing to do with the actual substance of this post... but I really like the word "spool" and I haven't heard it used in a very long time.
