I know this is kind of a silly post, but it really is one of the most amazing things that the internets have given me ever. I love pandora.com so much.
If you live under a rock (or have been in the Peace Corps for 3 years) it is high time you learn about Pandora. What you do is you tell it a song or an artist that you love and it comes up with other songs that it thinks you will like. It is quite genius. We have so many ‘stations,’ that are edited to pretty much only play the music we love, that we never have to get bored of our old CDs and mp3s ever again. The only downside is that there’s a limit for how much you can listen to in a month, but it only costs $0.99 a month to keep the music coming. The only other downside is Pandora’s crazy affinity to Jack Johnson. Seriously. He shows up on all our stations – Decemberists, Audra McDonald, Glee Cast, Deb Talan, Emiliana Torrini. Everything. No matter how many thumbs down we give him. Oh well.
