After reading about it on danah boyd's weblog [apophenia], I've been listening to music through Pandora, which creates custom radio stations using information from the "Music Genome Project". It's kind of cool to listen to a stream of music related to a favorite song or artist, but I think that my favorite part is reading their explanation of the defining characteristics of a particular genre.

I swear that it said that a key component of Bloc Party was something like "modest lyrical vamping", but I can't get it to say it again. It also really wants me to like a song called "Curve of the Earth" by Matt Nathanson.
