Just a few things before I head out for brunch. Yes, I'm going to brunch. I feel like such an adult.
I forgot to mention in my Mixed Bizness post that I've recently welcomed a new addition to my family. Splotchy is running a little black-market adoption agency for character actors, so I headed over there and picked up Joe Pantoliano. I couldn't believe he was still available. Someone actually took Klaus Kinski into their home before Joey Pants. Outrageous! But, their loss is my gain. You can see my little Joey over there in the sidebar under my blogroll. I'm so proud.
I'm completely obsessed with FineTune now. After trying Pandora, LastFM, LaunchCast and a bunch of other internet radio sites, I think I've found one to which I can fully give myself. My Summer Mixx went from about 50 songs to 100 in the past 2 days, and I created another playlist of all Brit-Pop. The only thing that really bothered me was that there were no Beatles songs available. Can you imagine a Brit-Pop playlist without the Kings of the genre?? Most of their catalog is there, but for some reason all of the songs were blacked out so they couldn't be added to playlists. I searched the site for an explanation, but came up empty. I can only guess that The Beatles have been used on such a huge number of playlists that they're now off-limits for variety's sake.
My two playlists are only the beginning, people! I'm sure I wll be completely consumed by this site in a week's time. Meanwhile, if you check out my lists and have any feedback or recommendations for me, I'm all ears.
Speaking of music, has anyone bought or heard Ryan Adams' new CD, Easy Tiger? I am totally in love with his song, "Two," which is on my Summer Mixx. I haven't had a chance to hear much else, but I'm ready to buy the record based on the strength of that track alone. It's just beautiful.
Finally, for those of you who have been living in a cave for the past month, here is the newest Internet sensation, The Dramatic Chipmunk.
