    The Music Genome Project - Discover New Music!

    This allows you to enter a few bands or songs that you like and will generate an entire playlist based on it. While this is similar to LAUNCHCast, I've found it to be more accurate in matching tastes and it's better about introducing some really good, yet obscure, bands.

    You'll be limited to 10 hours of playtime, but I think I've found a way to bogart some free time off of it. They're using Flash, and Flash stores personal information (like "cookies") in a specific place on your local drive. Browse into C:\Documents and Settings\(your username)\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player\#Shared Objects and start poking around. One more strange-named folder down you should find a folder for "pandora.com" and inside of that are the "shared objects" in which Flash is storing info. Deleting these would probably wipe out any trace that you had been to the site before. You'll likely lose your station though.

    Enjoy!

    Has anybody else checked this out yet? I read about it in Esquire a few weeks ago, and I gotta admit, it's hot shit. Custom streaming radio playing songs that are elementally similar to whatever songs/artists that you specify. I've found a crazy amount of music that I never would've found otherwise.

    But long before that thread I started a thread to a site similiar to this one.

    I like Radio Blog more. Mostly because it lets you search for your song and play it right away. On Pandora you have to wait.

    Radio Blog also lets you create your own playlist from your favorite songs. So you can just click on "Juke Box" and you'll have you list of songs that you pre selected.

    I played around with pandora.com a couple times and I was pretty impressed. I gave it 10-15 artists that I really liked but also deliberately didn't put in another 10-15 that I also liked and let it play for awhile. Found some good music, but the most impressive thing was it played songs from some of the artists that I didn't specify yet always listened to.

    One annoying thing I'm finding is that you cannot go back and listen to a song again. You can only more forward.

    I actually made productive use of Mod tools outside of the Graphics Forum with this additional merge. Grad21 would be so proud, if only he weren't liquered up. :biggrin: Have a good one man, I've got your back.

    ...now on to your regularly scheduled thread. This Pandora thing really is awesome, if Indie-music is your cup 'o tea.
     
  12. I found pandora.com last november or december, and have loved it. Was about to start a new thread, but decided to search first because it has become well known among a good group of people i know.

    Just wanted to bump this, I love what it has on the site, and my selections are about 95% on target now. Alright, that's all.
