One day at the office, my work wife and I were stuck doing paperwork ALL day, no client appointments or home visits, nothing but bureaucratic bullshit for the entire day. I noticed Wifey had her ear buds in but no ipod shuffle. What gives?
Then one of the single greatest things happened, Wifey introduced me to Pandora Radio. Free streaming radio on-line. But what makes Pandora so unique is the user can plug in a song or an artist that they adore and Pandora not only plays said artist but it spins off music it thinks you would like as well.
There is a thumbs up/ thumbs down button that allows the user to rate the selection. If you give it a thumbs down, Pandora will stop playing the offensive piece of shit and states "We are sorry. We will never play this song again." There's even option to ban artists! And of course, if yr really digging something, you can bookmark the song &/or the artist. Which how I got entranced by Andrew Bird.
Wifey has aprox 7 stations going right now. I have 4, Stereolab, Vampire Weekend, Kimya Dawson and The Clash. A very eclectic range of musical styles and that's the charm of me.
And what you, my loyal readers, don't know is I'm listening to Pandora right now! Pretty sneaky, sis.
