Music

I think i might need to add a page to the wiki about music sites.  I’ve been working with last.fm, and hearing about Pandora, and wondering about Imeem, and thinking about MySpace with it’s mass of bands.  The thing these things have in common is that they’re all 2.0 and they all deal heavily with music – except MySpace, which deals heavily with just about everything and would probably stay where it is in the social networking section.  Or maybe I could give it an honorable mention for its historic significance.  is MySpace still relevant for bands trying to get their music heard, or are sites like Pandora, Rhapsody, last.fm, and others better?  Is rhapsody 2.0, or is it a one way product placement engine?  I’ll have to look into that…

    Have you seen Joost yet? All I have to say is reeennnn & stiiiimpy! Let me know if you want an invite.

    I got an invite, but when i went to Joost last night i couldn’t get on. I’m pretty sure it was something going on on their end, but if it doesn’t work again today, i’ll hit you up for an invite.
    I’d be excited about ren and stimpy, except like a chump i already bought the first season on dvd (the good season)… Ah well. Technology is always moving faster than i am.

    Did you download the software? It took me some time to figure out I needed to download the software rather than log on to the site…

    Yes, downloaded and trying it out. Visually the quality is pretty good, but the selection is lacking a bit in a lot of areas, particularly drama or any network television stuff, at least as far as i could see. Not that i like network tv, but it seems like getting some of the big shows would be key to success in an endeavor like this one…

    Totally agreed. It is still in beta, so maybe they’re working on getting permissions still. Totally looking forward to seeing some of the silent movies they’ve got!

    I see they have a lot of documentaries and nature shows, too.
