    Trying somethin' new...

    So, I'm loving this thing. If anyone ever used seeqpod, (which seems to be down at the moment) it's the same basic premise: type in a song or artist and a complex algorithm finds a bunch of links to open-source files for whatever might fit the parameters of your search. you can then create a playlist for endless hours of enjoyment.
    The difference with is that it incorporates a social aspect, allowing you to see what people with similar musical interests might also be listening to. The "props" and "credits" which you get and dole out, respectively, to other "DJ's" seems largely arbitrary, and at first seems like a way to coerce others to reciprocate with props or add themselves as listeners. To be honest, I have no idea what the difference is between the "listen" and "favorite" functions, but regardless, it is interesting how multinational/cultural the users seem to be. and you can find just about everything except the most obscure of musicians on it. Definitely worth checking out if you have some free time. And, of course, give my station a listen. Its not too bad, if I do say so myself.
