It’s always nice when you can make someone smile or laugh, especially when it’s unexpected. The following excerpted from Ken Nelson‘s blog post:
From the tbbs mailbag, a link from The Brooklyn Bluesman to a music station he created on Pandora that he entitled “I’m A Lonesome Fugitive Radio?.

I’m listening as I type, and found out I can’t type and tap my feet at the same time.

I’d played with Pandora just a bit over the holidays, and created a couple of stations of my own. Basically, you key in an artist or a song, and Pandora finds other music you might like based on your input. It is, as BB so aptly put it, “Like AmigoFish, except for music.? Darned if Pandora doesn’t do a good job. I didn’t realize you can email URLs of your music stations to others. Check it out; it’s pure coolness, in spite of the fact they don’t know the Siderunners. Rex Hobart and the Misery Boys, on the other hand, are well-known.

Think about this: BB, from Brooklyn, is now in Taiwan creating music lists of country music, emailing them to me in Northern Virginia, where I’m diggin’ the heck out of it. Gotta love these internets. I may have to Twist the Knob here in a bit, and listen to more of these songs.

Thanks, Mark!

My pleasure Ken- the Chinese have a saying, “A good thing should be shared with a good friend!” His Here’s to continuing the conversation and making these “internets” more sociable.



  1. Not only are these internets more sociable, whit Pandora, they’re more melodious too 🙂

    Is that a pic of NASCAR haulers? From their alignment, color schemes, and what appears to be skyboxes in the background, I vote yes.

    I gotta put the Killing Floor on my blogroll; you’re already in my NNW feed..

    I think they are NASCAR haulers. Thanks. Glad your internets are making nice sounding zeros and ones for you!
