Bricin has no friends

I am trying out a new online music streaming service, Grooveshark. It has some good press around it’s recommendation engine. Fair enough, I will check it out. Pleasant UI if a little web 2.0-heavy. Needs a Java app on the PC to check out your current music and share it with others (can you hear the clock ticking on the lawsuit countdown?).

Then I switched to the social page and see this.



Maybe I am a little touchy after spending 5 days in a hotel room in Zurich waiting for a French visa. Maybe I need to get out a little. But still, that seems sort of harsh. How about “Bricin hasn’t found the right buddies yet, but we have full faith that he will”.

Of course given my taste in music perhaps it’s not so inevitable. How many people out there have Springsteen & Abba in the top of the artist list, with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” as the most played iPod track.
