Dogs are for sure man's best friend, and Pandora is a solid second.
Right now I'm on the computer trying to write, and I've been introduced to songs I've never heard by bands I would have never given a chance to, and songs I love by bands I adore. They are as follows:
- Ode to LRC - by Band of Horses
- Freedom Hangs Like Heaven - by Iron and Wine
- Into the Woods - My Morning Jacket
- The World at Large - Modest Mouse
- The Way That He Sings - My Morning Jacket
- Hang Me Up To Dry - Cold War Kids
- Island on the Coast - Band of Horses
- Gagging Order - Radio Head
- Just Couldn't Tie Me Down - The Black Keys
- Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground - White Stripes
- Spread Your Love - Black Rebel Motorcycle Club
I have created a list of the greatest Pandora stations in the world. These songs came from either my My Morning Jacket station or my Eagles of Death Metal station.
Here is a list of bands who's albums I will buy because of this experience:
- Band of Horses
- Cold War Kids
On a second note:
How can football be so important to some people. It's as if it's the only thing some people think about this time of year.........If what I just wrote in anyway made you mad, or think I'm stupid for asking......You're probably one of the people I'm talking about.
Jerry Jones spent 1.2 BILLION dollars on the new Cowboy's Stadium. ONE POINT TWO BILLION DOLLARS....I cannot support that...AND if you're tuning in to the games every week, or buying those stupid flags to hang out your car window, you ARE supporting it.
What? "You didn't spend 1.2 billion." Stop fooling yourself.
This country has a SICK obsession with games. This country has a sick obsession with alot of things.
Go ahead, I dare you to compare the top of this post about my loving music with other's love of football...I'm not saying you can't enjoying something that's pointless, I am saying you/we can take pointless things way too far....and right now football is numero uno for alot of people I know.
What are we worshiping?
Oh yeah, and don't fool yourself into thinking that college football is any better because the kids aren't getting paid. I doubt that really, but even if their not paid, that's even worse. The schools are pimping out those kids and their abilities and making a bagillion dollars off of them. Sure they get a college education out of it for free, but so do the calculus wizards in the math department who show lots of promise...Those football players deserve something for the buckets of money they make the schools. I guess they are getting something, but compared to the calculus wizards the football players are getting screwed.
