blip.fm

Those of you who don't know what blip.fm (like me 48 hours ago) are probably thinking what the heck is it? Well it is another website meant to suck up more of your already overtaxed time schedule... but if you love music, this place is awesome! Forget twitter and facebook, I could easily spend all my time at blip because I can search and play all my favorite songs and also see what my friends are playing and see if our musical tastes compliment or collide. I have discovered some awesome new music this way and am enjoying myself way too much. Like all things, I'm sure it is the relative novelty of it that I'm enjoying right now, but me thinks the musical component of it is what will keep me coming back. (Oh and you can link it to twitter and FB if you want!)

So if you love music, want to see some of my favorite songs and share some of your favorite songs with me, then find me at blip.fm/Ello and become a listener. If you are already on blip, then let me know so I can favorite you.

Try it out, you just might like it!

Does this have streaming audio like pandora.com? I love being able to select a genre and just let the pandora 'radio' livestream music for me while I write. (And you can thumbs down songs you hate.)

I've been meaning to check it out, but there simply hasn't been enough hours in the day.

No it doesn't have streaming genrewise - but you could play off a playlist - or off of your favorite dj if you find someone with similar taste - which I have found a few. And it is pretty darn cool!

Travis - I hear you! I didn't want to start and now I'm hooked!

I admit that I understand this as much as I do twitter (which is like - not at all) but I am enjoying SImply Red right now and I'd forgotten how much I loved this album. I'm going to listen to Clannad next...

Keep picking great tunes Ell!

I"m torn! I love, love, love music...but I know I will get sucked in and stay on blip for hours and hours! What to do, what to do!

Haha, I've seen you mention this a few times now on FB and Twitter and I was a bit confused. I'll have to forward it to the boyfriend! because he's a little nutty about music and that stuff.
