Grooveshark– This is probably one of the more popular options out there. It has a friendly user interface that is comparable to iTunes and has most of your mainstream music.

8Tracks– This is more for finding playlists than actual songs. You can search on everything from mood to time period to find a mix someone compiled. Good option if you don’t want to devote that much energy in select individual songs.

Last.FM– Another popular option here with an iPhone app even available for it. I am a fan because sometimes I just want to listen to music I know and other times I feel like finding new stuff based off of my interests. This integrates both worlds really well  and am pleased with the suggestions I have received.

Myspace– No longer competing with facebook this website is good if you want to search by a specific band/artist. Good options for both popular bands and small local venues.

Thissongissick– Minus the radio and a good amount of energy, it is not easy to find new, good music daily. This website/blog focuses on banger, house, rap and other similar types of music suggestions. This is personally a good fit for me and my friends because of all the suggestions in our favorite genres. if you do not enjoy this kind of music this will not be your site.

The White Panda– Mash! If you have the attention span of a small goldfish, this group’s website has 50+ mashes you can press play on to keep your ADHD brain entertained for days. Sometimes the mash-ups are just what you need and this group provides a large number of them for free with one click of the button.

Stumble Audio– This is a new favorite of mine. Unless you are living under a rock, you have realized EVERYTHING online is going social. This website does the same for your music and provides many options. Find what you like and share away.

Songza– The best way I can explain this website is Pandora + Facebook. You type in a song or artist and it creates a playlist for you to share with the world. There are other stations already created and you can search or suggest friends stations as well.

Musicovery– Feeling tired, energetic, calm or energetic? no matter your mood combination you can select your preference based off of this mood matrix and the website will suggest music for you. There are other options online similar to this website that have 100s of emotions and moods to chose from. In my experience this only make it less enjoyable and more time consuming.

Fizy– This is more of the jukebox version of grooveshark. Just straight music to play; simple and straight forward. This website is another simplistic format that allows you to search for both music and music videos.

Everyone tries to utilize social media marketing but very few times does it actually turn into something awesome or even remotely interesting. American Airlines nailed it and has an awesome social media campaign running where you ‘like’ the AAdvantage fb page and receive a mystery amount of miles ranging from 100-10000. It was the easiest 300 miles I have ever earned. Earn you some miles at AAdvantage

If you are like me you find the idea of cats weird and know that the owners are just not as cool as dog people. This email forward is probably the funniest I have ever read and proves that cat people…well, just aint all right in the head. Enjoy this and other similar threads at 27bslash6

Hi
I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me. It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.

This is the only photo of her I have she answers to the name Missy and is black and white and about 8 months old. missing on Harper street and my phone number.
Thanks Shan.

Re: Poster

Dear Shannon,
That is shocking news. Luckily I was sitting down when I read your email and not half way up a ladder or tree. How are you holding up? I am surprised you managed to attend work at all what with thinking about Missy out there cold, frightened and alone… possibly lying on the side of the road, her back legs squashed by a vehicle, calling out “Shannon, where are you?”
Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.
Regards, David.

Re: Re: Re: Poster

Dear Shannon,
I never said I don’t like cats. Once, having been invited to a party, I went clothes shopping beforehand and bought a pair of expensive G-Star boots. They were two sizes too small but I wanted them so badly I figured I could just wear them without socks and cut my toenails very short. As the party was only a few blocks from my place, I decided to walk. After the first block, I lost all feeling in my feet. Arriving at the party, I stumbled into a guy named Steven, spilling Malibu & coke onto his white Wham ‘Choose Life’ t-shirt, and he punched me. An hour or so after the incident, Steven sat down in a chair already occupied by a cat. The surprised cat clawed and snarled causing Steven to leap out of the chair, slip on a rug and strike his forehead onto the corner of a speaker; resulting in a two inch open gash. In its shock, the cat also defecated, leaving Steven with a foul stain down the back of his beige cargo pants. I liked that cat.
Attached poster as requested.
Regards, David.

Dear Shannon,
It’s a design thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Poster

Dear Shannon,
Having worked with designers for a few years now, I would have assumed you understood, despite our vague suggestions otherwise, we do not welcome constructive criticism. I don’t come downstairs and tell you how to send text messages, log onto Facebook and look out of the window. I am willing to overlook this faux pas due to you no doubt being preoccupied with thoughts of Missy attempting to make her way home across busy intersections or being trapped in a drain as it slowly fills with water. I spent three days down a well once but that was just for fun.
I have amended and attached the poster as per your instructions.
Regards, David.

yeah can you do the poster or not? I just want a photo and the word lost and the telephone number and when and where she was lost and her name. Not like a movie poster or anything stupid. I have to leave early today. If it was your cat I would help you. Thanks.

Dear Shannon,
I don’t have a cat. I once agreed to look after a friend’s cat for a week but after he dropped it off at my apartment and explained the concept of kitty litter, I kept the cat in a closed cardboard box in the shed and forgot about it. If I wanted to feed something and clean faeces, I wouldn’t have put my mother in that home after her stroke. A week later, when my friend came to collect his cat, I pretended that I was not home and mailed the box to him. Apparently I failed to put enough stamps on the package and he had to collect it from the post office and pay eighteen dollars. He still goes on about that sometimes, people need to learn to let go.
I have attached the amended version of your poster as per your detailed instructions.
Regards, David.

Re: Re: Awww

I know, but that one is cute. As Missy has quite possibly met any one of several violent ends, it is possible you might get a better cat out of this. If anybody calls and says “I haven’t seen your orange cat but I did find a black and white one with its hind legs run over by a car, do you want it?” you can politely decline and save yourself a costly veterinarian bill.

I knew someone who had a basset hound that had its hind legs removed after an accident and it had to walk around with one of those little buggies with wheels. If it had been my dog I would have asked for all its legs to be removed and replaced with wheels and had a remote control installed. I could charge neighbourhood kids for rides and enter it in races. If I did the same with a horse I could drive it to work. I would call it Steven.

Regards, David.

Fine. That will have to do.

 

 

Here is the sad truth: MTV no longer plays music videos and there really aren’t too many options out there.

Fortunately for those of us that still like catching music videos, there is ViddyJam; the Pandora of Music Videos from Youtube. All you do is set your musical preferences (just like in Pandora) and click “Jam” to see a streaming playlist of music videos. Welcome back music television

Good lyrics with a calming beat that makes this one of my new favorite songs.

Haven’t always been the biggest fan of Michael’s later work but the beat in this song, Breaking News, is pretty catchy and it has been a little over a year since his death so here it goes.

If you are a Kanye fan this 30 minute film will amaze you. It features eight of his newer songs along with one long music video to tie them all together. It is a video to either love or hate.

A cool compilation of interesting skills some people around the world have mastered.
