I'm putting the finishing touches on today's GiR, and I'm listening to last.fm while I work.
Usually, I tell it to pick a station from my neighborhood, so I can find new music, but when I'm on deadline, I prefer music that I know, which can slip into the background as necessary, and is unlikely to send me down some "similar artist" rabbit hole that's both distracting and expensive (not that there's anything wrong with the occasional trip like that; it's how I discovered The Legends, after all.)
So this morning I told it to just play the station it built for me based upon my scrobbling and tagging. Wow; it's like I'm listening to my own library on shuffle. It's like it was reading my mind, man. It played Boingo and The Whitest Boy Alive, and then played Girl Anachronism! It's creepy how perfect it is.
If you've been reading my blog long enough to know that we share musical interests, or you're just curious about the tunes this particular young person enjoys, you can tune in:
It also recommended music for me, but I'm saving that for later.
