alas, poor myspace, i knew you well

but really guys, you've gone way too commercial really?... a commercial between every single song?... yup, they've gone greed crazy which reduces their draw immensely for me... worse yet, kaspersky blocks the stream every few songs (or commercials) because it detects malicious behavior... not sure if it's the same commercial repeated within ten minutes or if it's a more serious attempt to phish or injure me and my computer, but it's not good news for my playlist or for myspace... it was a good playlist, too... unfortunately, the dischordant music of the commercials between each song destroy the ambiance of the mix... there were 33 songs on it (the playlist says so), but only 29 are still listed... it's called Love Songs and Other Anomalies... here is what is left...

i actually have nineteen playlists on myspace from back in the days i played there (before tim sold it off)... and i am still loving the music (and the secret links... shhhh lol lam seriously... and the show, thank you lenka) and still feeling super good and someday, i shall try to remember the songs myspace deleted and recreate the message without the commercials so the blend of sounds and lyrics can be felt as intended...

feel me, myspace? :)

musical distractions

If people had visible signs or meters that told something about them, what would you want it to tell you?

dumb poll (above), smart responders

all the previous poll votes were somehow erased, so, nevermind... ironically or coincidentally or whatever, the results were very close in practical numbers to the results above shown with just three votes, if you understand the mathematics behind that extrapolative reasoning... i will probably remove the poll at some point... it is a ridiculously useless feature...


the thing is, with my tendency to babble and meander and whine and allow distraction to take the lead more often than not, even in this blog that sort of meant to merge brevity with focus like some bloggers do, searching for key words does not always lead to specific information about the subject of that key word... but... here is a start at an easy way to search for key words in this blog... use the search box at the top of the blog to search for words not listed here... if ya wanna, that is... and feel free to suggest words to add to this search shortcut section... click on the words below :)
