as i live vicariously through your playlist

Another incredibly busy day at work made torturous by the fact that my Launchcast just stopped working. Every time I load it up, the window pops up, the station starts to load, and then I get the annoying IE error box (Launchcast does not work in Firefox). This is killing me. The only CD I have here is scratched beyond repair, I can't get any other streaming stations to connect (same annoying window pops up) and I'm just about ready to cry. I can NOT work without music. And, of course, Matilda is home with my husband. I'll just have to fantasize about having decent music, I guess. So, what are you listening to right now?

Best of BoDeans: Slash and Burn

Nobody growls better.

Cereal Killers by Too Much Joy

Harvey Danger: Where Have All The Merrymakers Gone?

I'm might get bitchslapped for this, but I'm listening to http://www.wncw.org, streaming radio. Public radio I listened to when I was in college. Bluegrass, jam bands, weird shit that no one wants to listen to. I own no CD's that are anything like the music played on this radio station, but it reminds me of the mountains and the good times. Give it a try if you really need music, but I warn you, sometimes it gets fruity.

Switched over to Greenday, American Idiot.

How long we supposed to keep this up?

I just finished Pantera The Best Of Pantera: Far Beyond The Great Southern Cowboys Vulgar Hits.

Now I'm putting in Black Flag Everything Went Black....

VH1 Crunch channel.

They got rid of the 80's alternative channel, morons.

Now I'm listening to Has Been by William Shatner.

My blogradio, of course.

I, too, have moved on. We're now enjoying the mellow smoothness of Husker Du's Flip Your Wig.

Jandek - Blue Corpse

And now Just Won't Burn by Susan Tedeschi

I'm istening to the beautiful music of three little kids trying their best to kill each other.

BTW, you could try finding a Shoutcast station that appeals to you and pasting the stream URI directly into WinAmp.

I'm listening to Jet - Get Born on my CD Player.

At this moment, TSOP (by TSOP) is playing on my random mix. I know disco sucks, but you have to admit it's quite a catchy tune. As I recall, that song popularized the "Electric Slide". Anybody else old enough to remember if that's true or not?

A lawyer, mostly. I'd argue I'm worse off, but at least when I climb into my car I have many stations of XM goodness to choose from. Not that that will stop me from only listening to about three. (Classic alternative, today's alternative, and the punk/ska station when I can get away with it- the hubby hates my incoherent punk as much as I hate his soul-numbing techno.)

XM is my new god anyway.

my 80s hair band mix on my ipod

earlier, it was Portishead, but then I got really depressed and time started moving backwards...

The Apers - self-titled
Rocking punks from Rotterdam...

Stardumb Records is a very cool European label - they have a bunch of Mp3's from The Apers, Groovie Ghoulies and numerous other excellent bands available for download here.

I was going to suggest Little Steven's Underground Garage, but it looks like the archives are currently down for maintenance. That site runs off of Flash, so you might or might not have luck streaming it...

Now it's Indigo Girls Closer To Fine . I have to turn it down a little - if the guys at work find out I'll have to turn in my red-state Redneck card.

And now Jem - Finally Woken

Blue Suede - Hooked on a Feeling

OOO KA CHACKA!
OOO KA CHACKA!

Modest Mouse, "Good News..."
(currently playing: "The World at Large")

Ashlee Simpson, of course.

David Soul - Don't Give up on us Baby. This follows The PArtidge Family's "I think I Love You", which followed the Osmonds "Yo-Yo".

My Media Player is posessed by the Devil.

broken social scene!
you forgot it in people

Streaming radio-I found an awesome station from Martha's Vineyard . .. . .

created an iTunes "Purchases Only" playlist on my iPod.

Just finished: Randy Newman's "Sail Away"

Current tune: "Mama Told Me (Not to Come)"

Upcoming: Patty Griffin's wonderful "Cold as it gets".

I thank you people. I think.

The problem is, I can't stream anything, so your helpful suggestions will go to waste.

However, our IT guy is a GOD and promised to fix my Launchcast tomorrow.

Some of you should be ashamed of what you listen to, you know.

I can recommend these for use w/Fantabulous Firefox
