I absolutely LOVE Pandora!! It's super simple, and it does an absolutely GREAT job of picking songs based on your interests/genres, and it can find some pretty obscure music (e.g., Drums & Tuba; Intronaut) as well as the obviously obvious (e.g., Ozzy, Helmet). The Music Genome Project is a stroke of genius! But, speaking as a biologist, it's not so much a "genome" project as it is a "proteomics" project. Anyway, another super cool thing about Pandora is that it's not gonna play all the same, moldy classics you are used to over free radio; case in point, currently it is playing "Bloodstone" a freakin' awesome song by Judas Priest off the Screaming for Vengeance album, which likely never got any airplay, or maybe like a month after the album came out. Long story short, Pandora ROCKS!!!!

I love the stuff on this site, the site iteself is awesome too; the one thing I have an issue with (but I've only ordered once from them, so maybe it was a fluke) is that the delivery was sooooooooooooooo slow!!! And it wasn't that the delivery METHOD was necessarily slow, it honestly took more than a week from me placing my order (a zombie plush doll, a pacifier, a pack of post it notes, and a multitool; nothing super heavy, large, or labor intensive to pack!!!) to when they shipped it!!!!! Over three weeks from placing order to receiving items!! Plus, shipping was $6 for a $20 purchase; really, 30%? REALLY???!!!!! I'm not going to be so quick to order from them again, but the stuff is pretty cool. I guess next year I'll order the day after Thanksgiving and maybe I'll get it in time for Christmas.

I have shopped with Overstock.com several times and they are always prompt with delivery which is great!! The occasional knock off item that is not up to par in quality with the real thng isn't their fault :) so one (read, I) should know better, but the deals can definitely be found here; just got a 100% wool suit for $65 that would have easily cost $250 + at a suit store (one of those "warehouse" type places, hint hint) and it looks, feels, exactly like my other 250 + dollar suits; still needs to be tailored but nominal fee there. I will continue to shop with Overstock and hopefully get more "hits" than "misses" !!!

Pandora is great as an online radio, but I wish I could use it to make playlists and I wish it...
