Love it Love it Love it!

Most of you have probably heard of this, but in case you haven't, CONGRATULATIONS! I'm about to make your day/life.

Pandora.com is an online radio where you type in an artist you like, and it creates a custom radio station, just for you! It plays the artist you typed in, as well as other artists who share similar musical qualities. For instance, I have a John Mayer Radio station that plays artists like Coldplay, Ben Kweller, Jack Johnson, Dave Matthews Band, The Fray, Jason Mraz, etc.

And to test it out, I put in some of the most obscure artists I could think of, and they were on there! Of course, your favorite high school band won't be there, but anyone that actually has music produced is probably going to be on there.

The best thing ever is that underneath each song, you can give it a "thumbs up" or a "thumbs down" depending on how much you like it. If you give it a thumbs up, it will fine tune your station preference to play more songs like that one. If it's a "thumbs down" for you, it'll immediately go on to the next song, and never play that one again on your station.

Also, if you create a profile, it will save your stations so you can come back another time.

So go music-it-up, and have fun. This has totally made my work life enjoyable.

P.S. Speaking of work, I got a call back for an interview for this Wednesday! It's pretty much the salaried dream job I've been hoping for, but I'm pretty sure I'm underqualified. It's exciting though that I even got a call back! Wish me luck, and I'll keep you posted!
