Usually, I have my iPod running in the background at work. More specifically, I listen to it at my work bench. (You see, I have a desk, where I spend about 30% of my time, and I have another desk (work bench) where I spend the rest of my time.) Anyway, when I’m at my 30% desk, I tune into Pandora radio. It is great! Let me tell you why I have one more reason to love Pandora.
I recently discovered the genre stations that Pandora has set up. I found the pop radio genre, which is nice, because I do like some of the songs they play on pop radio. Well, in case you don’t know, Pandora let’s you “thumb down” songs you don’t like and they will never play again on that station. It’s a cool way to effectively “customize” what it plays for you. (I say “customize” because you still have to let Pandora “feed” you songs and let you judge them yourself.) (I say “feed” because if you use the “free” version of Pandora, you can only skip so many songs before you just have to listen to them all.) (I just quoted “free” for the heck of it back there.)
This was probably one of the most rewarding, soul-fulfilling, probably-would-have-made-my-bucket-list-if-I-had-one-already “thumbs down” I’ve gotten to dish out in a long time:
Notice the check-marked thumb down in the bottom left corner and the larger, subtle, yet all-powerful thumbs down in the upper right corner.
Sweet, sweet victory!
Do I really have to explain why this made my day? I think not. (Oh, and the only thing better than thumbs-downing this song? Thumbs-downing the second one that came along.) No Beiber fever here!
