no jokes involving the word “box” allowed

Over at Pandora.com, if you tell it what kind of music you like, it will give you streaming radio of similar music. Now, it’s certainly not perfect, the algorithm they use seems to be based strictly how the music sounds, not the content of the lyrics. But as long as you keep this constraint in mind, the hit rate is surprisingly high.

If it wasn’t for Pandora, I would have never even heard of the Desaparecidos or had the opportunity to listen to “Wreck My Car,” by Scott H. Birham.

Life without Desaparecidos just isn’t worth living. Not this week anyway.
