Do we think it's cool? I don't know, I just made my account last night. Supposedly, it test for compatibility in music. I'm just getting it for the recommendations. Link your account, and let us mock your taste.

I'm perfect, though. Don't you dare say a word.

    It's so cool that a very cool group of cool metalheads hang out there.

    cool!

    I'd use it at work if it didn't require a client...

    Taco Bell does win the franchise war according to the tome of knowledge that is Demolition Man. However, I've watched Demolition Man more then a few times and never once did I see WoW. In conclusion Taco Bell has more lasting power then WoW.

    I like it, although I haven't used it in a while. I always switch between that and Pandora. FYI, I like alternative rock, so beware all you pop and R&B fans. I don't do that.

    Some of my softer music is near the top, but that's because I set Winamp to play in the morning as my alarm. The morning playlist is much more gentle than the "rest of the day" music. I'm kinda hardcore.

    I'd also like to add that my roommate is the one who has recently become obsessed with that RJD2 Third Hand album, not me. Also I'm totally embarrassed by how high the Decemberists are, but I was all moving to Portland and getting into their catchy pop shit. Shit -- I think my roommate has been driving Radiohead up like woah, too, there's no way I still listen to them that much. But yeah -- 24k+ songs played, and no terribly transparent pattern! Woot!

    Does last.fm have superior features for free account users over Yahoo's Launchcast Radio?

    Launchcast radio has very detailed rating/preference systems by artist/album/track, but free accounts only stream at medium quality and there are a lot of advertisements and "recommended" (read: paid Yahoo to be inserted) tracks.

    I don't know, honestly I just use it as a personal music journal, to keep tabs on what I'm listening to, and occasionally I check out the profiles of my friends or other users to get a band name to check out.

    The ability to wiki edit entries about the artists was cool when I first got on. I remember I spent a little while writing one for The Piano Overlord. I wonder if that's still there.

    edit: yep, the one and only edit to "Piano Overlord" was done by me. Not bad, if I say so myself.

    amarok has a default plugin for it, which is sweet. Sadly it doesn't quite reflect my music tastes, as I haven't consolidated my library down to what I really like, but I enjoy being one of the biggest freezepop listeners on the site.
