Two posts in one day! The last one was getting a little long, so I decided to break it up. This one is more interesting, anyway. Well, if you're me. I don't know how you all feel about it.

I have been listening to a lot of Pandora recently. When I cook dinner, I like to dance (badly) in the kitchen to good music. I was getting sick of the songs I own, so I decided to make a new Pandora station: high-energy, fun songs I can sing along with.

My artist seeds are KT Tunstall, Regina Spektor, and She & Him. Apparently I like chick-rock with a twist of slightly crazy. All of my song seeds are up-tempo, catchy little numbers.

This is my conversation with Pandora:

Me: Okay, KT Tunstall radio, go!
Pandora: "Are you strong enough to be my man?"
Me: That's... not exactly what I had in mind. Thumbs down!
Pandora: "But the landslide brought you doooown."
Me: *shudder* Thumbs down!
Pandora: "I don't mind spending every day out on the corner in the pouring rain!"
Me: Okay, technically up-tempo, but not really what I'm looking for. Maybe if I give you some seed songs. Let's see... "Mushaboom"? "On the Radio"? "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree"? These giving you any ideas?
Pandora: "Red, red wiiiiiiine! Stay close to meeeeee!"
Me: What? No!
Pandora: Haaaah! Haaaah! You cannot skip anymore songs. "Red red wine you make me feel so fine you keep me rocking all of the time..."

*three minutes later*

Pandora: "Red, red wiiiiiiine! Go to my heeeeead!"
Me: If I don't like it when UB40 sings it, do you think I'll change my mind just because Bob Marley does?
Pandora: "Red, red wiiiiiiine! Stay close to meeeeee!"
Me: Unlike!
Pandora: "Buffalo soldier, dreadlock rasta..."
Me: I don't think you understand. I don't like Bob Marley, either. Yes, I'm the only person in America who doesn't like Bob Marley. I also dislike the Beatles. Stop looking at me like that. Bob Marley doesn't make the dishes get clean any faster. Bob Marley makes me want to be deaf.
Pandora: "You may say I'm a dreamer! But I'm not the only one! I hope somedaaaay you'll join us!"
Me: Remember how I said I didn't like the Beatles? That includes John Lennon. Okay, up-tempo, catchy, go!
Pandora: "Words like violence break the silence..."
Me: Are you kidding me.
Pandora: "I love you, you love me! We're a happy fa-mi-ly!"
Me: Now I know you're messing with me on purpose.
Pandora: "With a great big hug and kiss from me to you!"
Me: I'll give you a great big hug. With this KNIFE.
Pandora: "Won't you say you love me too?"
Me: That's it. You're going in the oven.

Don't forget. New blog.


  1. i followed you from ehell, i post as how'd you get to be happiness.

    i just wanted to tell you i died laughing reading this...i laughed so hard my dog gave me a weird look! Pandora has turned me on to some great bands but sometimes it recommends the weirdest stuff!

    i also love this:
    Pandora: "With a great big hug and kiss from me to you!"
    Me: I'll give you a great big hug. With this KNIFE.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA. that is just gold.

  2. Hi! And thanks! My cat gives me similar looks all the time. But that might just be because she still resents me for stealing her man (Jeremy).

  3. I LOVE your blog!!! I'm an ehellion too. Have you tried last fm? Same idea as pandora.

  4. Thanks! And I will try it. You're the second person to recommend it.
