What to do on a rainy Saturday afternoon?

After an unsuccessful attempt to mow the lawn during a brief pause in the precipitation, I chose to stay in, surf the web, and listen to music on

I’m a late-comer to, but I dabbled with its cousin, Pandora, about a year ago. I probably would have signed on to sooner, but the novelty of Pandora quickly wore off. I usually don’t like trying to listen to music while sitting at my computer. If I sit at the computer and listen, I have a tendency to hit the “skip" button if a song doesn’t hook me within 30 seconds. For better results, I think I should rig my laptop to my home stereo, sit down with beer, and let Last run wild.

My initial thoughts on compared to Pandora: the music well runs much deeper. I didn’t have to listen to Pandora for very long before I started hearing repeat songs during one sitting. Last tends to stray from the reservation when running through tunes from “similar artists.” Fugazi got linked with Blink 182. On the other hand, Pandora tried to slip some Def Leppard into my Television--and I‘m talkin‘ really bad post-Hysteria Def Lep [much worse than the already bad circa-Hysteria material]. To paraphrase a line from Short Circuit, computers don’t have feelings: they just run programs.

Of all the “stations” I’ve tried so far, I’ve had the best results with Sea and Cake, which has rolled out some Red House Painters, New Pornographers, Les Savy Fav, Shins, Thunderbirds Are Now, Yo La Tengo, Neutral Milk Hotel, and much, much more. [Sea and Cake came up on my Guided by Voices station.]

A straggling orange-grove was here, broken lines of vanquished cultivation, struggling little trees swathed and choked in the festooning gray moss, still showing here and there the valiant golden gleam of fruit.. Three! exclaimed Uncle Billy, scratching his head.. Gideon had grown to be to vaudeville much what Uncle Remus is to literature: there was virtue in his very simplicity. It--it was five years ago, said Mr.. Whenever a new peak came into sight he asked if that were the Dachstein, and, finally, refused to accompany the party to the waterfall.. When he reached the neighborhood of Balaam it suddenly occurred to him that he might have forgotten some one of his numerous commissions, and he paused to think.. Thinking, perhaps, to draw out the odd character, he ventured upon a jest himself, repeating a pun invented by the man who made the first soda fountain.. She wears no--er--rich gifts of her faithless admirer--is panoplied in no jewels, rings, nor mementoes of affection such as lovers delight to hang upon the shrine of their affections; hers is not the glory with which Solomon decorated the Queen of Sheba, though the defendant, as I shall show later, clothed her in the less expensive flowers of the king's poetry.. Hi now! Get along! Podington was now full of life and energy, his wheels were on the hard road, and he was himself again.. If these passages are capable of throwing light upon the intimate relations between the dream and the psychoneuroses, they have served the purpose for which I have taken them up.. Leonard would have known her.. The rendezvous had actually been set for half-past eleven.. Fluker commenced perspiring at the first item, and when the balance was announced his face was covered with huge drops.. He was mentally adrift upon the Hints and Helps to Young Men in Business and Social Relations , which had suggested to him his present enterprise, when the appearance of a second youth, taller and broader than himself, with a shock of light curling hair and a crop of freckles that advertised a rich soil threw him a lifeline.. His early morning's fall had begun to make itself felt.. For discretionary reasons I have inserted the tin for another material in which the father deals, without, however, changing anything in the verbal expression of the dream.. They were close to the Tutt House now, and her limp, that had entirely disappeared as they emerged from the woods, now became quite perceptible.. He had never supposed that such an absurd proposition would be accepted. M---- must have been then a very young man.. In this house he used, among other things, to slide down the banister astride which caused him to become sexually excited...
