I recently discovered last.fm, an online “radio” sort of thing where you can basically tag music you like and create your own “radio station” and listen to music you like non stop in 128kbps, no commercials, no interruptions or you can tune in into live radio stations that match your tags. So far I must say it is fantastic.
It also offers a lot of user interaction features, including e.g. a recent tracks list:

Love is in the air in Neptune this week and the prom just got cancelled but thanks to our rich school mates “Alterna Prom” is the next best thing if not even better. Meanwhile, in another part of town Woody has a little mistress problem.
In case you have missed it, there was a Lost Parody on MadTV February 26th 2005 and in case you have a deja vu then rest easy, you are just having a flashback!
As announced a while back on Yahoo! TV News & Gossip, Disney is going to make 4 of it’s hit TV shows available for download from the ABC.COM website!
The four shows are “Desperate Housewives” and “Lost” and in June “Commander in Chief” and “Alias”. Is this a fight fire with fire move or simply the realization that ARPA-NET is history and the new net is much more than just an information highway?
Free shows for download from Disney? What’s the catch? No catch … apart from the usual commercial mayhem?!
“Walt Disney Treasures: On the Front Lines” stands out from the rest of the Walt Disney Treasure releases simply because of its historical context. It contains 32 shorts and a full-length feature film “Victory through Air Power” originally released between 1941 and 1945. This makes “On the Front Lines” the most anticipated release of the Treasures series and rightly so. Shorts like “Education for Death” or “Der Fuehrer’s Face” have lost nothing of its potency and putting them into context really shows you the power of the media machine. Most of the material was made for propaganda purposes, supporting the war effort at home and some are educational hence the entertainment factor may not always be given but the historical context of these make them fascinating for generations to come.

Another 48 hours later Veronica Mars and me are best buddies, after all we’ve been through. What would that be, you ask? Without spoiling it for you, I’d say just your regular teenage high-school stuff, really. Sounds boring? Well, it would be if it wasn’t for Veronica’s relentless crusade to find out the truth about the Lilly Kane murder. As much as we’d like to say “the butler did it”, it wasn’t so and there are but a few possible choices.
I stumbled upon this gritty witch hunt-like series called “Supernatural” (WB) by accident and was drawn right into it. The mix of “Ghost Busters” like humor, the Eighties rock music, the forlorn brothers on a never ending road trip theme, eager to torch that bad ass demon that killed their mother Mary, is hard to resist and on top of it offers all the thrills and spills you’d expect from a series dabbling in ancient folklore, mysticism, demonolgy and the paranormal in general.
