Pandora's User Interface is Ingenious

I noticed something very subtle but ingenious on Pandora ( They only present you with a very simple UI at first. Certainly this is so it doesn't scare you away. As you begin to use it, they add elements to the UI and explain what they are for. This is the first time I've seen something like this. It's amazing.

Another Place to Get Music

A friend at work uses, and it seems very good at first glance. It's commercial/mainstream music unlike thesixtyone, and Pandora offers links to Amazon to buy MP3s.

By the way, I am really only interested in free music or in officially licensed but DRM-free music. I would prefer to deal directly with the artists like thesixtyone does, but that site doesn't have everything I want...

Thinking of Buying a Motorcycle

I'm seriously thinking about buying this motorcycle. It sounds perfect:

"If you think you can email me and ask me to sell if for less you could just as well save me the effort and punch yourself in the balls because that is what I might do and you are most likely a sissy and not worthy of this motorcycle."

Here's an interesting one!

Open Letter to Driver of Pickup Truck

This is an open letter to the driver of the pickup truck I saw after work today on East Henrietta Rd. In the back of the pickup truck, there was a small child about 6 years old sitting there in the freezing cold. It was about 24 degrees out. He did have a hat on, but I imagine he was freezing cold. Not to mention he was in the back of a pickup truck, for Pete's sake!

Shame on you!
