Currently listening to Pandora Radio right now as I work. I have my own creator owned "channels" so that I can get to specific artists that I want. The one I have up right now is of course my KISS channel. But it's damn frustrating in what they chose to stick into my random shuffle and it just doesn't make sense. With a KISS channel, are you really expecting to hear The Eagles' Hotel California and Kansas' Carry On My Wayward Son? No! Look, I actually like those songs, but they just don't belong in my KISS channel.

So, I ask you guys, is there any other alternative online radio services that would be more particular with what they put into the rotation? Spotify? What else? Please let me know you're pros and cons for whatever service you use because I'm 100% willing to move onto something other than Pandora if there is something better. Thanks.

Seriously, what the f*ck is up with Pandora today? My KISS channel has played a whopping total of 1 KISS song out of 15 songs so far. Hell man, they have played more Guns N' Roses songs on my KISS channel today than I would have gotten had I loaded my GNR Channel!!!!!!

I too have been having similar issues with my Pandora selections. I thought it might be related to me doing nothing, what I mean, is giving thumbs up, thumbs down on songs. Because, like you, my artist tend to drift on the selected artist I want. And too, there are some bizarre songs, I would never expect to hear on that channel.

Iím hearing more about Spotify. Marketing and reviews. I havenít tried it myself.

Same with Rdio

Been waiting to hear more from Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Dan The Automator.  "You And Me" was on my iPod for ages, and I'm glad to see their first video has that same old-school sultry sensibility to it.

Led Zeppelin III (Deluxe Ed.)



One of my least favorite LZ albums. But you know what, I have probably not listened to the whole thing since my early 20ís because of that perception. Today, I find it refreshing mainly because of the more acoustic slant to this collection. I found several of them just plain beautiful in their simplicity. Really not simple, but multi-layered and it just sounds smooth.

I listened to the additional CD with outtakes, different takes on songs and raw recordings. Gallowís Pole is about the only one I found to be as entertaining, if not more than the original. Beyond that, I didnít find much to want to purchase this remastered extended set. Donít get me wrong. All the songs are great quality. Itís just essentially double dipping for this particular project, IMO.

I dig Pomplamoose.

I found parts of this song and reinterpretation interesting.

CROZ - David Crosby



I like David Crosby. I like CS&N. CROZ just didnít do anything for me. I do think his voice is not as good as it use to be. The production value is spot on, I just was not in the mood for such mellow music. I doubt I return to it. Nothing stood out.

Unplugged 1991/2001: The Complete Sessions



Let me state, Iím not a fan of R.E.M., meaning I can take Ďem or leave Ďem. I wonít turn them off if they come on the radio. R.E.M. have a few songs I hate (Stand, Orange Crush, Shiny Happy People) and they have a few that I absolutely love (Losing My Religion, Everybody Hurts).

That being said, I thought Iíd give Unplugged a listen too. I think what immediately hit me was how most of R.E.M.ís songs sound exactly the same. Maybe it was due to the acoustic rendition of their catalog, breaking it down to the core writing. I just blew through this 2 CD set because the next song sounded like the previous.

Even Losing My Religion disappointed me. I guess it just highlights how much production and depth songs have. I typically love Unplugged, but looking back, I guess I like the more drastic versions, especially from hair bands.

Not gonna even rate it. Canít judge it fairly.

Is this an MTV Unplugged session or just them recording versions of their biggest hits acoustically?

Not sure... The way most songs flow into the next it sounds like a small audience hearing one concert.

Apparently Nerdist has its' own video embed tech so I don't know if I can embed it here, so here's the link to Weird Al's new music video, "Tacky".

The King of parody strikes again.

I can't seem to get his other video 'Tacky' (Parody of Pharrell Williams Happy) anywhere.
