A Great Music Playlist

Earlier this month, Kristen posted a great music playlist over on her blog, Confessions of a Graphic Design Student. I absolutely LOVED the vibe of the music she'd put together, even though most of the songs were new to me. Then it gave me a great idea... what would happen if I plugged these songs in Pandora?

Have you ever used Pandora? It's a great site! I highly recommend it. You can create your own personalized radio stations VERY quickly (& it's free!). All you have to do is seed it with one or more songs or artists and it builds a station around others songs/artists that have the same feel. You can even pick one of their pre-made genre stations to start a station even more quickly.

So anyway, in this case, I seeded a new station with all of Kristen's playlist. What came forth was a beautiful NEW station, filled with music that fit my style but that I'd never heard of before! Wonderful!! I just love it when my radio seems to know me. ;)

If you're a Pandora user, you can click on the link below to hear my station!


  1. I love Pandora!! I swear my station knows exactly what I want to hear next. I've trained it enough :) Glad you enjoyed the music!

    1. Seriously! I constantly wonder how they do it, over there at Pandora. They really know how to put a station together!

I have come to the realization that I may have been mis-typed. I have often taken personality tests and generally come up with the result that I am INFP. I recently took a test that said I was INFJ actually, and the more I have been researching, the more that actually sounds like me.

What it really comes down to is the external/internal focus of the different functions (a topic that I'm still trying to wrap my head around, so I apologize if I don't explain it right). The I--J tends to actually function more as a "Perceiver" than a "Judger", contrary to what you might think (and vice versa for the I--P), which is a common reason these two types are mistaken for each other. How it actually plays out though is quite distinctive, which is why once I started reading more about INFJ's, I realized how much more like me it sounded. Basically, there are...

Vintage Travel Poster

One of our projects this coming term is to do a computer illustration of a painted vintage travel poster. I've been Googling some options and here are some that I like. Which would you pick?

80's Cartoons: Then and Now

I was browsing tv this morning while eating breakfast (tsk, tsk, I know...) and ran across a shocking sight. They've remade a BUNCH of the 80's cartoons, and not very flatteringly at that. I knew about Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears, but check out some of these other ones, too! As an 80's child myself, I've often wished over the years that those old cartoons would make a comeback, this wasn't exactly what I meant!

Strawberry Shortcake: Then and Now
The 80's Strawberry people were reminiscent of the sugary treats that gave them their names. Now the characters look more like shrunken Barbie dolls.

Care Bears: Then and Now
Care Bears (and their cousins!) used to be a soft, cuddly bunch that liked to stare down bad guys every now and then. Is it just me, or do the new versions have unusually large heads? This somehow makes them look both younger and creepier at the same time.

My Little Ponies: Then and Now As with most 80's cartoons, the My Little Ponies were …
