Dear Amazon MP3…


Dear Amazon MP3,

First off I want to say I LOVE your cloud drive and player.  I think it is one of those common sense innovations that will make enjoying my music collection just that much easier.  I do have one request/suggestion that would just knock it out of the park.  You may have this already in the pipeline, but I would like a way to rate songs, artists, and albums from the player.  It would also be nice if there were links from the artists/song/album name to their pages on Amazon.  This way, as a user I could be able to find new music based on my preferences and do it on the go.  It’s a win win, more music for me, more money for you.

Thank you again,

Lesley Reynolds

An open letter to Amazon.com on the launch of their Cloud services…


Getting Started at Amazon MP3: Shop 15 million songs, play your music from the cloud on any Android device, PC, or Mac with Amazon Cloud Drive and Amazon Cloud Player..

Dear Amazon.com,

Ok, this is an awesome idea and I’m about ready to spend me some serious cash with you today.  I don’t know what you’re putting in the water over there in Seattle, but every time I think, “Gee, it sure would be nice if…” you guys come through and deliver.  From daily featured free Android Apps, to free 2-day shipping with Amazon Prime (free for students!), your common sense innovations just tickle me to no end.

Keep up the good work Mr. Bezos and your friends their at Amazon.

 

 

 

Run Hundred – An awesome find for music lovers at the gym


As and you shall receive.  I gave up on using iTunes some time ago and decided to just go with Napster’s streaming music service.  It’s like Pandora but without long pauses and you can take it anywhere (you don’t even need an Internet connection).  The only problem is that I lost my workout play list.  Not having a consistent play list was really bothering me.  Either the gym music was sucking pretty bad, or Pandora would throw in some slow jams that really didn’t fit with a hard charging workout. So I went in search of a way to find songs that I both like and have a consistent beat to them.  I found Run Hundred pretty quickly and I think I’m going to be able to build the ultimate, personalized run mix.  And the good thing is that when I start to go faster I’ll be able to easily find songs that go with my new speed.

The Simplest Way To Find New, Workout Music

I’ve tried to set up Run Hundred in a way that makes it easy to sort through workout music.

Shower Thoughts #80: Stupid Snow


1. That workout last might was killer
2. Stupid weather… It is winter time, it should be snowing
3. I’m going to sound like a broken record but… I am just not ready for today. I’m moving so slowly.
4. Song of the day: Stereo Love by Edward Maya.
5. Damn that coffee smells so good.

Shower Thoughts #77: Nothin’ better than a good Sunday Service


  1. Last night’s acoustic set was outstanding, but the encore was even better.
    1. November 13, 2010
    2. November 14, 2010
  2. My left ear is a little worse than my right… it is still ringing pretty bad… or at least it feels like I have a cotton ball stuck in there.
  3. I can’t believe this is my last week with on this job.  I’m nervous and excited all in one.
  4. Song of the day: My Heart’s Killing Me

I took the weekend off because Jason and I were up in DC for The Black Crowes concerts at the 9:30 Club.  Like always, the shows were amazing; although I enjoyed Sunday’s show a little more than Saturday.  We also saw Red this weekend and it was pretty good with a bit of “tongue-and-cheek” humor.

What does Apple’s Genius say about you?


I use the Apple iTunes to manage my music because I have an iPod and an iPhone. After my Madonna tribute ended earlier this morning, I thought I would see what the Genius could come up with for me.  The Mix titles made me chuckle and I thought it was an interesting way to categorize my musical personality.  Here are my mixes, what’s yours?

  • Adult Alternative Pop
  • Brit Pop
  • Classic Rock
  • Classic R&B
  • Indie Rock
  • Urban Crossover
  • Synth-Pop
  • Soundtracks
  • Punk
  • Alt Metal
  • Folk
  • Alternative Pop/Rock

I feel like some music – Madonna anyone?


I guess I was inspired by the all Madonna episode of Glee last week.  I couldn’t help myself.  I downloaded Ray of Light and Music. I really enjoy both these albums. The one song off Ray of Light that I like to listen to the most is Shanti/Ashtangi. There really isn’t anything deep or meaningful that I wanted to say about these two particular albums.  I just enjoy them and wanted to share.



Check it Out -Plastic Beach, Gorillaz


Today’s new music profile is Plastic Beach by the Gorillaz.  The first thing I noticed about this project is the amount of “guest” talent that has contributed to the unique sound.  From Snoop Dogg, Mos Def and Lou Reed to  Paul Simon and The National Orchestra for Arabic Music, the sound of this album is new and fresh, yet familiar Gorillaz. Enjoy!
