Sorry I didn’t have a comic last week. I’ve been working over 50 hours a week and when the weekend comes around I just sorta want to do absolutely nothing. After December I won’t be working myself like crazy and I’ll be able to do two comics a week again.
I had such high hopes for iTunes radio. I figured it would know best what I like because it could access my library and see exactly what I have. Maybe make really good recommendations based on my library. Nope. All it did was try and get me to listen to the worst things. I was banning artists and songs left and right. I think I told it at least 3 times to never ever ever play Blink 182. I never had an internet radio play Turdvana for me before either. Nothing against Nirvana, I just hate it and I don’t think that a radio station based on Bad Religion should play it.
Slacker was cool for a bit, then it sucked really bad at playing good music and excelled at promoting Eminem and lame country artists. Pandora. I hate Pandora. I feel like Pandora’s mission is to get you as far from the music you listen to and closer to the Billboard. If you listen to the bands on the Billboard top whatever then you probably love Pandora, and Pandora probably loves you. Let’s see. Aupeo was kinda cool for a bit, but I quickly run out of skips because they too think I should listen to shitty “punk” bands.
I do however really like Last.fm. And Last.fm works with Spotify to build a better library of what I like. I was going to draw a panel where Last.fm was telling Spotify to not even think about playing the Beatles, and Last.fm would be missing an eye and an arm or something. That didn’t happen though.
Spotify is the best.
Oh hey, speaking of the Beatles: why did the Beatles cross the road? I donno. Because they suck, and they probably wanted to go wear one large scarf together somewhere.
