Man, you never realize just how eclectic your music tastes are until you hit the random shuffle button and start working on art. I gotta organize these playlists better. Andy Stewart and Rob Zombie need to be separated or I get major mental whiplash, and the less said about Tool's intrusions into my folk collection, the better. ("Funny, I don't remember Steeleye Span having quite so many songs about prison sex...")

I use Pandora Radio, at Pandora.com, to DESIGN my own, PERSONAL online radio station, that plays ONLY the music I want to hear.

How much did they pay you?

All you have to do is tell it a few artists or songs you like, and then tell it whether you like or dislike some new songs it gives you, and it quickly adapts to your tastes. I set up a station for my baby daughter, who especially likes classic rock with a heavy beat and perky melody, and it's turned up a lot of interesting things that appeal to her. Oh, and it's free and so far has no ads.

Oh, I know those people. I see them a lot at the Portland Saturday Market. I love the little dragons they make too.

I prefer Last.FM, but still, neither will be of much use to Ursula while she's listening to her iPod.

Nothing. I just think it is really great. I have created seven radio stations, each with a different format to match the moods I'm in at the time.

...except my Pandora station gave me the worst musical whiplash I've ever had. Roger Miller -> Rage Against The Machine. And it would've been just as traumatic going the other way. Thing is, I like both bands -- just not next to each other.
