Pandora: my new love in streaming radio feeds

So a few of my friends got the new 3G iphone... and all they have been discussing was a site they use on their phones called Pandora. It streams radio to your pc, phone, and various other devices that you may have in your home. As far as i can tell , it is only set up for certain AT&T as well as certain Sprint phones.

Me being the proud owner of an HTC Mogul Smartphone figured that i could enjoy with no probs... but apparently my super phone isn't so super in this area.

next step, to check it out on my PC. All I can say is I'm lovin this thing!

now first let me explain that the full name of the site is "Pandora: radio from the music genome project".. now foregoing all the big brother/new world order jokes that can be attached to such a name, the beauty of this radio player is that it first asks you to list an artist or song... it then analyzes the basic elements of the sound/ structure of the artist or song and builds a play list of similar styled music.

I decided to test it by submitting RJD2... and it worked like a charm. You can also create multiple radio stations to listen to from anywhere you have online access. I really think that this is all I'll be listening to for a while.

You can hear it for yourself at: http://www.Pandora.com

Best Diss Song Ever......

that award goes to Mr. Oran juice Jones for his 1986 hit "The Rain"
for those who don't know it's a song about how a guy finds out his girlfriend is cheating on him when he sees her walking in the rain with another guy.
anyway the "Juice" decides to stop sing in the song and spends the last verse just tellin her off.... lol it's freakin great!

here's what he says and the music video too:
Hey hey baby how ya doin' come on in here
(Walking in the rain)
Got some hot chocolate on the stove waiting for you
Listen first things first let me hang up the coat
(You were holding hands and I'll)
Yeah how was your day today
Did you miss me
(Never be the same)
You did? Yeah? I missed you too
I missed you so much I followed you today
(I saw you)
That's right now close your mouth
'Cause you cold busted
(Walking in the rain)
Now just sit down here, sit down here
I'm so upset with you I don't know what to do
(You were holding hands and I'll)
You know my first impulse was to run up on you
And do a Rambo
(Never be the same)
I was about to jam you and flat blast both of you
But I didn't wanna mess up this thirt-seven hundred dollar lynx coat
So instead I chilled -- That's right chilled
I called up the bank and took out every dime.
Than I cancelled all your credit cards...
I stuck you up for every piece of jewelery I ever bought you!
Don't go lookin' in that closet 'cause everything you came here with is
packed up and waiting for you in the guest room. What were you
You don't mess with the Juice!
I gave you silk suits, blue diamonds and gucci handbags.
I gave you things you couldn't even pronounce!
But now I can't give you nothing but advice.
Cause you're still young, yeah, you're young.
And you're gonna find somebody like me one of these days . . .
Until then, you know what you gotta do?
You gotta get on outta here with that alley-cat-coat-wearing,
punch-bucket-shoe-wearing crumbcake I saw you with. Cause you
That's right, Silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids, don't you know
that. You without me is like corn flakes without the milk! This is my
world. You're just a squirrel trying to get a nut! Now get on outta
here. Scat!
Don't touch that coat...
