rock on

Expanding musical horizons. Or something

A major reason why I love listening to last.fm on my iPod touch is it exposes me to much more music than I would ever listen to without its help. And so tonight, one of the artists my neighbourhood introduced me to is kimya_dawson_, who is described by Wikipedia as being part of the "anti-folk" movement. The more I read about her the more I like her as an artist, so well done last.fm.

Of course, it then played me Godsmack's "I Stand Alone", followed by Augustana's "I think I'll go to Boston / I think I'll start a new life" song. Think it's trying to tell me something?
